Question

Can the IRS take my refund for student loans if I’m approved for a deferment?

Answer

If your student loan is in deferment, the IRS won’t take your refund. The IRS will only take your refund if you’re delinquent with your student loans to offset debt.

Your student loan interest deduction might be lower than prior years if you paid less interest in the current tax year. This can affect how much refund money you receive.
