Question
Can my New Mexico state refund be seized to pay off outstanding debts?

Answer

COLLECTION OF DEBTS FROM YOUR REFUND

If you owe other taxes to the Department, the Department keeps all or part of your overpayment. The Department applies that amount to your liability. By law, the Department is required to transfer all or part of your overpayment to certain claimant agencies if you owe a debt for any of the following: • past due child support; • medical support liabilities; • educational assistance loans made under the Educational Assistance Act; • TANF liabilities; • SNAP liabilities; • unemployment compensation; • district court liabilities; • magistrate court liabilites; • Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court liabilities; • municipal court liabilities; • workers’ compensation liabilities; • educational assistance loans made with the New Mexico Higher Education Department.

The Department refunds any amount over your liability and debt to you.

IMPORTANT: If you receive notification that all or part of your refund was transferred to a claimant agency and you want to protest that action, contact the agency. The addresses and phone numbers are provided here for your convenience. If your refund was transferred to a claimant agency in error, that agency is required to correct the error and issue you a refund.
