Will My Tax Refund Be Taken For Student Loans During The Coronavirus Pandemic?

This is a question I’ve been getting a lot lately. The answer is a little complicated. For most people with federal student loans that are in default, they won’t have to worry about their refund being taken. That’s because Pres. Biden suspended student loan collections through September 2021.

But there are some people whose defaulted federal loans are with a guaranty agency. Those loans aren’t covered by the suspension. And since they’re not covered, they’re at risk of having their tax refund taken.
