Can I receive a tax refund if I am currently making tax payments on prior years?

Tax_questionQ) Can I receive a tax refund if I am currently making tax payments on prior years?

A) According to the IRS: No.  As a condition of your installment agreement, any refund due to you in a future year will be applied against the amount that you owe.

  • The IRS will automatically apply the refund to the taxes owed.
  • You must continue making your installment agreement payments as scheduled and in full, because your refund is not applied toward your regular monthly payment; therefore any payments due under the installment agreement must still be made in full.
  • Regardless of whether you are participating in an installment agreement or other payment arrangement with the IRS, you may not get all of your refund if you owe certain past-due amounts, such as federal tax, state tax, a student loan, or child support. For more information on these non-IRS refund offsets, you can contact the Bureau of Fiscal Service (BFS) at a toll-free number 800-304-3107.

  1. THE IRS “GET MY PAYMENT” WEBSITE KEEPS GIVING ME ERROR MESSAGES! Do you or your colleagues have any insights re the IRS “GET MY PAYMENT” website? I SUCCESSFULLY entered my DOB, street address and Zip Code into “GET MY PAYMENT”. However, this time it REJECTED my 9-digit SSN which I entered as: xxxxx6892. Note that the above St. ADDR. / ZIP is a temporary address for an AZ cancer clinic where I’m currently being treated. Also, note that I successfully received my previous two stimulus checks via DD using the above information (bank’s routing / acct numbers haven’t changed). I called the IRS, IRS Fiscal Services Bureau and the Treasury Dept., and all I got were referrals back to IRS.GOV which directed me to contact my local IRS. Thanks for your help.
