Offset refund reversal

Not sure it can be reversed but you can contact the Treasury Offset program for help.

See the following for more information:
If you filed a joint return and you're not responsible for your spouse's debt, you're entitled to request your portion of the refund back from the IRS. You may file a claim for this amount by filing Form 8379 (PDF), Injured Spouse Allocation.

You may file Form 8379 in any of the following ways:

- With your original joint tax return ( Form 1040 (PDF), Form 1040A (PDF), or Form 1040EZ (PDF)),
- With your amended joint tax return ( Form 1040X (PDF)), or
- By itself after you receive notification of an offset.

When filing a Form 8379 with your joint return by mail or with an amended return, write "Injured Spouse" in the top left corner of the first page of the joint return.
