Millions of fed. taxpayers receive billions of dollars in income tax refunds every year. Many of these refunds are paid to taxpayers who owe money to the fed. gov┐t. or to their state or local gov┐t. The law allows certain types of debts to be collected through offsets of fed. income tax refunds before payments are issued to taxpayers -- in calendar year 2008, over $5 billion was deducted from income tax refunds and used instead to pay other fed. agency non-tax debt, state income tax debt, and overdue child support payments. This report describes: (1) recent proposals to expand the refund offset program; and (2) challenges and design issues that would need to be addressed in the event of program expansion. Charts and tables.
