Fed refund taken by state last year my wife and I filed jointly (been married for 8 years but this was first time we filed jointly) was expecting approx. $750 refund from fed return, but our state (RI) took the refund and applied it to MY supposed RI state tax owed from tax year 1988... we were not married until 2001, so I cant see how the state can take the refund I had zero income last year and entire earnings and corresponding fed refund were due to my wife.... I can see maybe the state could take half of the refund, but to take entirety of it to apply it to MY bill from before my wife and I were married is improper as I understand it under the innocent spouse rules since last May when this happened I have contacted the IRS, the RI tax authority, and the TOP several times and have yet to get much in the way of answers.... IRS tells me to file forms x, y, or z.... and the RI tax auth. claims we have no recourse additionally, we owed about $300 in state tax last year and had planned to pay it with part of Fed refund.... but since they took it and applied it to a 21 year old bill, we didnt have the funds to pay 2009 state tax.....and interest has been accruing ever since any help from someone that has recovered misapplied Fed refund offsets would be greatly appreciated

What you need to do.

The best course of action is to file an Injured Spouse Claim, form 8379. If it's true that your wife had 100% of the income, she will be the injured spouse. Once filed and processed, the IRS will reverse the offset and refund the portion of the refund that is based on your wife's income (which should be all of it). Given you've already filed and it's been offset, you're looking at about 12-14 weeks for the whole process.
