Has anyone ever filed as an injured spouse?  

My wife has school loans that we thought were on a deferment...turns out they apparently aren't.  Her loan account was delinquent, yet we never received a notice.  We filed our taxes last week with an expected return of around $2600.  That entire amount was offset to Sallie Mae last Friday.  As I am the only wage-earner in our family, how much of the refund can I expect to recover?  She had zero reportable income last year...

*sigh*

I guess replacing my 6 year old rig (with the AGP slot) is going to have to wait a few months.   icon_neutral

When I left the IRS (in 1981 after having worked there for 8 years) I was spending time at a job where I had to call people and tell them that they needed to set up a payment schedule with us or we were going to really screw them over.

They are much better at that now.

both..we used to set up some pretty easy payments for people over fairly lengthy periods of time, they will still do that if asked...I believe the law allows them to get a hold of peoples refunds much easier now than it used to be....if you owe some agency money the IRS will grab it through a refund..

I know the state of California does that very well know as well....

It just pisses me off that in the letter from the Department of the Treasury we received on Monday that outlines the offset states:

 "The Agency had previously sent notice to you at the last known address known to the Agency.  That notice explained the amount and type of debt you owe, the rights available to you, and that the Agency intended to collect the debt by intercepting any Federal payments made to you, including tax refunds.

They sent it to me AT THE LAST FUCKING ADDRESS THEY HAD ON FILE.   mad

THIS letter we get.   mad
