With an offset you can't be to sure when or if you will be put on a list. There is a chance that you could be put on a list after filing. However, the fact that you are not on an offset list thus far is good. It really depends on the offset because the IRS refund can be reduced or intercepted to pay off delinquent debt, such as past-due child support, outstanding student loans, or unpaid state income tax.

If this should happen you would receive an explanatory letter from the Bureau of the Fiscal Service if your refund is offset. More info about refund offsets, including contact info and the appeals process, is at IRS.gov (Tax Topic 203).

If you have any other questions you can contact The Department of Treasury Bureau of Fiscal Services at 800-304-3107.
