Question

When do I receive the Tax refund offset?

Answer

​When an STRO collection is received, a receipt is created and identified by the payer’s member ID and SSN. Monies are allocated and distributed following the regular distribution hierarchy. It is then disbursed to the recipient. Money that exceeds the reported arrearage balance will be held for 60 days before it is refunded to the payer. When an FTRO collection is received, a receipt is created and identified by the payer’s member ID and SSN. Monies are allocated and distributed based on the Federal tax refund offset distribution hierarchy. Monies from a ‘single/individual’ tax return are then disbursed to the recipient. Money that exceeds the reported arrears balance will be held for 60 days before it is refunded to the payer.

Important note: Payers who have filed a joint tax return are also allocated and distributed based on the FTRO hierarchy reducing the arrearage balance; however, the actual disbursement is held for 6 months from the receipt date.
