If the unemployment office overpaid me, can they take my federal tax refund?
Yes. If the overpayment was due to fraud under state law, your federal refund can be reduced to cover the overpayment debt plus any penalties and interest.
The IRS must notify you that your refund has been reduced to satisfy a covered unemployment compensation debt.
The IRS will pay the offset amount to the state and notify the state of the repayment.
