Why Did You Send My Refund to Another Agency?


They notified us that you owe them a delinquent debt. We intercepted all or part of your refund to pay that debt.

  • If we only intercepted part of your refund, we will mail you a check for the remaining amount.
  • If your debt was previously paid, your over payment will be refunded to you. Allow 3 to 4 months of processing time.

If you have questions or disagree with the intercept, you must call the agency or college listed on the intercept notice that we sent you. We do not have any detailed information about the debt.
