income tax offset, what happens next

I am supposed to receive my tax retun on feb 06 2013 but I have found out that my tax return will be offset for my Student Loan and I am only 6 months into my rehab payments. since my return is way more then what is left on the loan I think they will take the remainder of the SL out of my returns. The question is what happens after?. Will it affect my score or report?. Or wil everything just sit there on my CR until it expires in 7 years?. Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: income tax offset, what happens next

I am not very clear on this but since you are in rehab, after you are through with 9 consecutive timely payments, your SL would be reported as current by your lender.
