Did you get any letter from the IRS explaining why they intercepted your return?
no i did not it just got deposited in my account this morning. i did my taxes at h&r block. It has been a year since the irs told me they had garnished it
could it be an H&R blocks mistake?
It sounds to me that someone else had the same social security or that HR block entered a wrong social security on your taxes or account number
Do they told you why they garnished your taxes?
they did. it was for back taxes that happened in 2006 but i figured i wouldnt get anymore back lash from it. will it impact my taxes when filed for this year?
i will also have to talk to H&R block about this wont I?
So, the IRS took your money because you had a balance due on your 2006 taxes, right?
Did you get all your money back or just part? If you get only part that means that the IRS took part of your return to cover your 2006 taxes
If you owe any money to the IRS they will take part of your refund to offset the debt
it looks like a part of it but will have to make sure about the amount as I still owe the payment to H&R block as well which i was going to pay when i do my taxes again. When you say offset do you mean a payment?
yes a payment
You can call the following phone number to see if you have any balance due to the IRS or the government ---- >
so your saying that the IRS may have just taken a small amount of the taxes, someone else may be using my SSN or H&R block may have made an error?
Since you said that you had a balance due on your 2006 taxes that change everything, that means the IRS took the money to cover your 2006 tax balance.
so the IRS may have just sent back the remainder of the balance after taking a bit of it?
When you call(NNN) NNN-NNNNthe automated service will be able to tell you if you have any other past due amounts, if you have any other past due amounts the may take part or the entire refund of your taxes.
wow i did not expect that to happen. will they do it again next year unlit it is payed off? I didnt know that
Yes, they can do it again
The Department of Treasury's Financial Management Service (FMS), which issues IRS tax refunds, has been authorized by Congress to conduct the Treasury Offset Program. Through this program, your refund or overpayment may be reduced by FMS and offset to pay:
