Tax offset from student loan help.?
Asked by: lpliskin
Just recieved a letter from Capital Management Services regarding a old student loan of 4,000 from Kaplan University, this has been years ago, i forgot, and they just sent me a collection letter just before tax time saying to get ahold of them within 30 days to verify this debt. Its Dec.2012, i called the offset line and its not there for 2013 yet. Is there a way to keep my name off of the tax offset list for 2013? Can i make a payment now to stop this? Btw my last name has chaned since then will this help? Advice please on how i can control this just until i can get my refund. I am married as well and file married.
Thanks for the answers so far, another tidbit of info here is Citibank is attached to this as well. It seems they just found me, i was in the army at the time all over the place and didnt realize i still owed it. Its not a threatening letter, intend to pay, just knocking on tax time and making sure its NOT a government loan.
