So with my tax offset, I am two payments away from paying off my garnished loans, and set up a rehab for my other loans for 5 dollars a month. The only problem, the IRS offset hasnt shown up yet. They took it, but Navient/USAFUNDS Loan Solutions has not got it. They told me to contact the IRS. Anyone know how long this normally takes.
Given that multiple government computer systems are involved, I would expect 6-12 weeks. The money has to move from IRS control, to the Department of Education, and then to your servicer(s). If it hasn't shown up in a couple of months, I think it would be worth doing some more investigation.
So quick update. USAFUNDSOLUTIONS hasnt gotten my offset. The IRS did, but I dont think I ever recieved a notice of an offset from them, but I did for the loans that are currently with USAFUND SOLUTIONS when they started my garnishment. These were FFEL STAFFORD SUBSIDIZED ...and the DEPT ED says that the offset went to the loans they currently had, and not the ones Im already being garnshed for help....
