Help with Treasury Offset Program

Payment plans

We continue to offset refunds even if you are in a payment plan. Offsets continue until your debt is fully paid.

We will also offset any California income tax refund until your debt is paid in full.

Filed a joint tax return and spouse owes a debt

If you and your spouse filed a joint tax return and your refund was offset for a debt that only your spouse owes, you may get a portion of the refund back.

Complete the Injured Spouse Allocation (IRS Form 8379) and send it to the IRS.

Native Americans

If you are an enrolled member of an Indian tribe and you believe your income is not taxable, you must send a letter explaining why. Mail us your letter.
