Tax Refund Intercepts

Tax Refund Intercepts Tax Refund Intercepts

In a few instinces, an agency can ask the IRS to intercept (take) your tax reimbursement and use the cash to your financial obligation.

Whenever Tax Refund Interception Is Allowed

Tax refund intercepts are allowed in these situations:

  • you are in default on student loan payments
  • you are behind in income fees, or
  • you are behind in your child support.

Notification and Defenses

Before the IRS takes your cash, the company must notify you. You can provide written evidence or have a hearing to show that any of the following is real:

  • Your debt has been settled.
  • The quantity of the proposed intercept is more than you owe.
  • The intercept is not lawfully enforceable.

Intercepts and Student Loans

Tax reimbursement intercepts are many typical in the instance of a defaulted student loan. Each year, for example, the federal government pockets hundreds of millions of bucks by grabbing tax refunds from hundreds of thousands of former students. (For lots more on student loan collections, including stopping or avoiding income tax refund intercepts, see Student Loan Debt.)
If the intercept is for a student loan, you can make a written request to review the agency’s file on your loan and the agency seeking the offset will consider other information, such as information showing you qualify to have your loan released because the school closed, falsely certified your eligibility, or were unsuccessful to pay refunds owed because you left before conclusion of the course.


Tax Refund Intercepts for Child Support

If you are married and the intercept is for child support from an earlier relationship status, your partner can file a claim for her share of the reimbursement.


Avoiding a Tax Refund Intercept

If your income tax refund is small, you will have less to lose from an intercept. You can boost the money you receive with your income during the year, so your tax reimbursement at the end of the year is maybe not that large.

Auto Loan Delinquency Rising

Late Car Payments?

The number of people 90 days late in car payments approaching peak levels since the subprime crisis of 2010.

If you’re late on your car payments, come in for a Chapter 13 consultation!

Compassionate. No-nonsense. Great job. Saved me $85K!

I had three choices: two large groups, or DebtDoc. I chose DebtDoc because of their numerous excellent reviews from clients as well as other attorneys. Also, I wanted someone to provide personal service and have a vested interest in my difficult student loan case.

I certainly made the right choice. DebtDoc's attorneys personally answered two of my phone calls and regularly answered my emails, even on one Sunday evening.

After 30 years of student loan "prison", he got me freedom AND he even got the US Dept. of Justice to dismiss 25% of my loans, which saved me $85K.

I feel like I have a new lease on life because of DebtDoc. I wish I could recommend 10 stars.

Client Testimonial

To whom it may concern,
DebtDoc's attorneys are extremely knowledgeable with the complexities of Federal Student Loans.
I went from a thriving career to full medical disability, ending with an SSDI placement. Unfortunately, I lost everything and became unable to continue making the student loan payments, so it was in deferment for over five years. When the SSDI settled I tried to negotiate an affordable payment plan with the loan holders but they refused my efforts, instead demanding over twice the amount I could afford.
I contacted DebtDoc and found them to be courteous, responsive and quick to assess my situation. They were sure they could help and took time to answer all questions, which relieved much anxiety. Within months they successfully resolved the debt! With much confidence, I highly recommend DebtDoc.
Sincerely,
