It is also possible that you owed IRS and they took your refund to offset the debt. I will suggest you contact the Treasury Offset Program at 800-304-3107 to find out. If this does not apply to you , call the IRS Taxpayer Advocate Service at 1-877-777-4778.
Here are the possible reasons when the offset is taken:
- Past due child support;
- Debts owed to a federal agency;
- Unemployment debts owed to the state;
- Past due federal student loans;
- Unpaid state income tax.

The IRS is seriously backlogged due to all the new tax laws and extra stimulus filings, as well as unprocessed 2019 returns left over from the COVID shutdown. Unfortunately, contacting the IRS will not speed things up, and they have actually told taxpayers not to call. Lots of other folks are still waiting, so please continue to be patient. Also see:
