    Lawyers agree

    Answered . The IRS generally intercepts as much of a taxpayer's refund as needed to pay off qualified debts. Since you wrote that you owe more than your refund, then your entire refund likely will be intercepted.

    The IRS generally sends a notice to tell you when your refund has been intercepted.
