Refund Offset and Injured Spouse Page 1 of 12 Refund Offset and Injured Spouse (edited transcript) Female Speaker : Now, it is my pleasure to introduce to you today Gladys Roberts. She comes to you from the Austin Service Center, and she’s going to present the Refund Offset Injured Spouse presentation, and she has that program at home.

I’ll begin by explaining what a refund offset is and why an offset occurs. Now, the words ‘offset’ and ‘apply’ are used synonymously in this presentation. So the question of the day is, “What is a refund offset?” Let me tell you, we have a huge library of reference materials by which the IRS governs itself.
