My spouse and I filed a joint State return and sent in an injured spouse form with it, but our entire refund was taken for my debt.
Injured spouse claims involving joint returns need to be filed separately from the return, the following documentation must be included:
- The letter sent to you advising of the intercept;
- All W-2, W-2G, or any 1099 statements received by both parties
- A complete copy of the federal tax return, including all schedules; and
- IRS form 8379 for injured spouse claims, if one was filed
