Will the IRS take my state refund to pay back taxes I owe?
Maybe. Under the State Income Tax Levy Program, the IRS can levy (take) your state tax refund to offset back taxes, addressing any tax debt you might owe.
If this happens, the state will give you notice of the levy. The IRS will also give a notice, after the levy, offering you the opportunity to appeal the debt offset.
The IRS won’t issue a notice if you already received a notice of intent to levy that advised you of your right to a hearing.
