Tax season 2022 has arrived. The Internal Revenue Service starts accepting and processing 2021 tax returns Monday, Jan. 24, 17 days earlier than last tax season's late start of Feb. 12. However, you might not have everything you need in order to file yet.

You're subject to offset.
Examples of federal debts that might trigger offsets include federal income tax delinquencies and student loan defaults. States can also ask IRS to intercept, or offset, federal tax refunds for state tax obligations or money owed to state agencies: this includes child support arrears.
