  • Question on Tax return and possible garnishmet Washington

    I have a student loan...have been out of work and unable to pay. Get a phone call from them saying if I can setup payment they will not take my tax return. I made a payment to them by the 30th like they asked and than setup with them for the payment to come out automatically each month on the 15th. The rep for the loan told me to wait to do my tax return until 20th of February. Which I I tooked on the IRS website it says my tax return will be deposited on 3/5....below there is a note that says there is a chance that there is money that could be going to other things.

    Can they take it all? What about what they said as far as setting up the payments they would remove the levy to take my tax return? And can I do anything? Can I stop those payment that are coming out each month? I cannot afford payments and for them to take my tax return.

    Can you help me?

    Yes, they can take it all. Since student loans such as you have are federally insured, the offset program allows them to take any refund and apply it to your past due debt.
