Student loans and two children

In the past my student loans have taken my federal income refund, I have two children now and was wondering if the income tax refund I get from them will also be taken away?

Yes.  Very likely it will be taken away if the debt has not been paid off. 

Since your return is still under your name, with a possible bigger refund due to the dependency, IRS will remain their right to reduce or garnish your tax refund to offset your past student loan.

Do you mean by the refund you get from claiming them as your dependents on your return ?

I just found out that my taxes are being offset because of student loans and I have one child . It happened even after I entered a rehabilitation program for my loans . I was told they will take your taxes and even garnish wages because if your loans are in default they put some type of flag on your account . You have to get your loans out of default for it to be removed . There are some ways to file a hardship but they damn sure don't try to help you to find out about them !!
