State taking my tax refund

I have recently received a notice from the New York State Tax Department that my tax refund is being used to repay my unemployment insurance debt.  Can someone please explain to me what is going on? 


  • If you happened to have earned money during the time that you were receiving unemployment benefits, that would mean that you have to pay that money back, and it can be garnished from your tax refund
