Why is my income tax refund check being taken to repay an unemployment benefit overpayment?

An unemployment claim was filed using your Social Security Number and it was determined that any benefits claimed were received in error, which resulted in an overpayment. The income tax refund is being taken to repay this overpayment. If you did not file a UI claim contact the TDLWD immediately. A fraudulent UI claim may have been filed using your identity information.

Effective July 1, 2012, legislation authorizes the TDLWD to off set any unemployment compensation debt due the department against any federal income tax refund due the claimant debtor.
