If I owe the IRS, will my return go to the IRS?

If you have back taxes owed, the IRS will intercept the 2016 federal tax refund and apply that amount to the taxes owed.  If the refund satisfies the debt, the IRS will send you the remainder.  If the refund does not satisfy the debt, the IRS will send you a bill in the mail.
