If you owe IRS money, and they take out the money you owe from your refund, does it take any longer to receive rest of your refund.

Generally, though not always, yes. It depends on the type of lien against any type of refund you may be expecting. Also, if the lien exceeds you refund amount, then you won't get any of it back. (There is an exception to this, for married couples filing joint, if only one partner is legally liable for the debt)
