 NOTE: You can contact the IRS Treasury Offset Program Call Center at 1-800-304-3107 to ask if they have an offset for you on file. TurboTax would not have that information.

Q. Will my 2023 tax refund be garnished for student loans?
 
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the government paused student loan collections on all federal loans, including tax refund offsets. That pause ended in September 2023. However, the U.S. Department of Education said it will postpone tax refund offsets until at least September 2024.
