This is incorrect info. The IRS took my state refund this year. This is what it shows on NYS refund status website "Our records indicate your refund has been applied to one or more outstanding liabilities. If both your federal and state refunds were offset, it may take up to 60 days to receive a refund of any overpayment.Our records indicate your refund has been applied to an outstanding Internal Revenue Service liability. For further information on this liability call the IRS at ....." So you are giving incorrect info. You might want to recheck where you are getting this info from. This is directly from the IRS's website &lt;a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="<A href="https://www.irs.gov/businesses/small-businesses-self-employed/federal-and-state-levy-programs&quot;&gt;https://www.irs.gov/businesses/small-businesses-self-employed/federal-and-state-levy-programs&lt;/a" target="_blank">https://www.irs.gov/businesses/small-businesses-self-employed/federal-and-state-levy-programs"&gt;https://www.irs.gov/businesses/small-businesses-self-employed/federal-and-state-levy-programs&lt;/a</A>&gt;

I hear you talking with confidence and authority, but you are wrong. When you owe federal taxes and are getting a state refund, and both returns are filed at the same time, the feds WILL apply your state refund to your federal bill.

FALSE! I owed the IRS, They took money from my FED refund to cover it AND the CA STATE sent them the money too out on my state refund. Now I am fighting to get the difference back! I paid the bill twice!

<description>
Totally false. I owed 2300 to federal for an audit 2 years ago. My MA state refund was just taken to offset federal debt. They did it last year too and I’m audited again.

The information is not incorrect, just not worded correctly. TurboTax cannot apply your refund to the other entity. The IRS, however, can offset for this amount.

<description>
<P>This isn't correct. From our 2019 return the IRS applied a chunk to a state debt. The state of Ohio also applied a chunk of that refund to a federal debt. The problem is, both debts were satisfied with the 2019 filing, so neither should have occurred. Now I have to try to recoup from both agencies, and I'm sure it will take months.&nbsp;</P>

<P>Well I know my federal was garnished for the exact amount of child support I owed in arrears and then I got a letter from New Jersey State Treasury with the same amount garnished for the same exact thing so they both took the same amount amount for arrears so one of them owes me that money back because I'm paid up as far as child support now that they garnished it</P>

<description>
<P>The original answer is correct if the question was "can the federal refund pay the state balance due&nbsp; or the reverse on a filed return " which is a big no.&nbsp; Some folks think that a refund on one return will automatically pay the balance due of the other return for the same tax year and fail to pay the balance due then get notices that they did not pay and now owe penalties and interest.&nbsp; &nbsp;However&nbsp; once a return is&nbsp; filed&nbsp; then a state refund can be grabbed by the IRS to pay a prior year debt and vise versa.&nbsp;</P>
