I do have an offset due to a VA debt but the amount is less than the total amount of my refund.
Expert:  Lev replied 1 year ago.

Yes - if your tax status was not updated within three weeks - that most likely means - your tax return was taken for so-called desk audit - and pending review.

Expert:  Lev replied 1 year ago.

It is not clear what exactly triggered that delay.

I might suggest to wait one more week and if not cleared for processing - you might want to contact the IRS directly.
