    You file your income tax returns with IRS. It keeps them.

    Yes, your refund will be used to pay back your defaulted student loans.

    They don’t tax your tax return, they take your tax REFUND. Your tax return is what you send to the IRS and Sallie Mae has no use for that.

    If your account is in default, all federal tax refunds are subject to offset until either the debt is paid in full or your account is brought back into good standing. Wage garnishments don’t change that.

    If they are already garnishing your wages then yes. They’ve sued you, received a judgement & will take every penny until it’s paid in full.

    Yep, they’ll take it. I’m SOOO glad I never took out a student loan. I hear nothing but horror stories. I’m sorry. :(
