What are a tax refund offset and an offset notice?
If you owe money to a state agency, that agency may ask that its payment be taken out of your state tax refund. The offset notice tells you exactly how much money you owed and what agency requested payment.
If you want more information about your specific offset, contact the agency that received payment. View a list of these agencies.
