I believe that any tax refund to which you think you may be entitled was diverted to pay down the debt of your student loan obligations. Your federal income tax will be applied to any federal student loans that are in default.

The only way to stop garnishment is to enter into a repayment agreement with your loan holder and make payments for 6 months. Your state income tax is not garnished. The refund is applied to the interest owed so your principal balance never actually decreases. You can change your W2 status so that less taxes are taken from your paycheck. But be careful to ensure that enough taxes are taken out to pay your tax deduction or you may have to pay at tax time. If you're single with a standard deduction you usually pay $2,500 in taxes (check IRS tax tables). Once you have paid that much in taxes, change your W2 status so you take home more pay. Then you won't get a tax refund to be garnished. you got your money as pay.
