  1. Call Financial Management Services to see if your refund was Offset to your student loan

    1-800-304-3107

    FMS will send you a notice if an offset occurs. The notice identifies your original refund amount, your offset amount, the agency receiving the payment, and the address and telephone number of the agency. The IRS will not be informed of the agency receiving the offset but FMS will notify us of the amount taken from your refund. Contact the agency shown on the notice if you believe you do not owe the debt or you are disputing the amount taken from your refund. Contact the IRS only if your original refund amount shown on the FMS offset notice differs from the refund amount shown on your tax return.

  2. why dont you try the irs website and click on wheres my refund type in your info and see what it says. if it says its been deposited i suggest you have them verify your bank account number GOOD LUCK

  3. Double check your route number as well as your account number.

  4. Usually if you owe for a student loan etc, it’s been my experience the IRS will hold your refund and will tell you that it’s held up due to a collection. It’s unusual for them to say they deposited it and it not be there. I would be more focused on double checking the routing number and bank account number on your taxes to make sure they are right. If a government agency is garnishing your refund they will send you a letter stating they did, and why. If the routing number is right, but the account number is wrong, I would call my bank and let them know so they can put it in the right account ASAP. I’m assuming you went to IRS.gov and clicked on “Wheres My Refund”.
