Tax Question form 8379 injured spouse form......How long??
Ok. My husband and I filed our taxes via H&R Block. We got the rapid refund on the Emerald card as we do every year. We got part of the refund and was due to get the rest in a day or two. Well that did not happen. I had an old student loan that I opened while we were split up 6 years ago and was attempting to go back to school. I called the # I was told to call to make sure thats why it was on hold. I had paid on this loan since quitting but not lately. I have not worked in 3 1/2 years. When I found out the money was being held by Sallie Mae I called them and told them what happened. The gentleman on the phone said DH is not responsible for my debt and advised us to file an 8379 Injured spouse form. He said since I have not worked technically it was DH's tax money b/c I did not contribute to the household funds. We got it filled out and mailed. Has anyone had any experience with this? How long did it take to get the money released?
