Fefund is differant than it was suppose to be i dont owe anyone

Anytime a tax agency sends a refund that is a different amount than shown on the printed copy of the return, they mail out an explanation letter in the weeks following the refund.  (would be handier if they let you know ahead of time, but it doesn't happen that way)

Why is my refund different than the amount reflected on the tax return I filed?
If you owe past-due federal tax, state income tax, state unemployment compensation debts, child support, spousal support, or certain federal nontax debts, such as student loans, all or part of your refund may be used (offset) to pay the past-due amount. Offsets for federal taxes are made by the IRS. All other offsets are made by the Treasury Department's Bureau of Fiscal Services (BFS). For federal tax offsets, you will receive a notice from the IRS. For all other offsets, you will receive a notice from BFS. To find out if you may have an offset or if you have any questions about it, contact the agency to which you owe the debt. See  Tax Topic 203  for more information about refund offsets.
