my return was accepted does that mean my refund wont be offset for student loans?
  • Normally you will get notice from either the company or the agency that issues refunds for the IRS stating you will be offset prior to getting offset, it will not delay a refund if any after offset.  Sometimes on the WMR on the irs site it will put a tax topic under your refund dd date if there was an offset.

18003043107 is the IRS offset phone number
  • i have a tax topic under my dd date. Does that always mean an offset will occur?
  • LOL Open the tax topic and read it... it should tell you what its for
  • jennalibra, says state tax obligations, federal debts, or child support. Is this a guaranteed offset?
  • Could be.... Call the off set hotline you will need your ssn and it will give you a message either saying there are no debts found for your ssn which means that there are currently no offsets... Or it will give you the name and phone number of the agency that is intercepting your taxes and you can call them  to find out why and for how much.
    Offset Hotline: 800-304-3107
  • Yes it is a Guaranteed offset sorry to tell you.

no, acceptance only means the IRS was able to identify you.  It has nothing to do with offsetting any refund you might be due.

    People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
