13. I received a letter saying that you sent my refund to another agency. Why?
We were notified that you owed money for back federal taxes, child support, college loans, or other state agency debts. State law requires us to send your tax refund to state and federal agencies to pay these debts.
Our notice shows how much of your refund was sent and to what agency. If you believe the amount sent was incorrect, or that you do not owe the money, you must contact that agency directly. Maine Revenue Services cannot provide additional information beyond what is provided in your notice. Our notice provides the address and telephone number of the agency requesting the monies from your refund.
Unless you also owe another agency, any remaining refund monies will usually be sent to you within three weeks.
If you filed a joint return, your refund may be taken to pay a past or present debt of either spouse, even if the debt was incurred before your marriage. Again, if you have questions, our notice shows the agency you must contact to get answers.
