Unfortunately, yes your federal return can also be used to offset your debt.  If the federal return is more than the balance of your debt, you will receive a refund for the remainder.

But what if the debt that are owed aren't federal debts? Mind you that I was never notified about an offset or debt prior to my taxes being intercepted.. Had I had the opportunity to be notified of the debts prior to the offset I could have taken the necessary steps to fulfill the obligation..
