What is the difference between a "snagged" refund
and a warrant intercept?
If your refund check has been snagged, the Tax Commission has applied all or part of the refund to a past due tax liability.
If your refund has been intercepted, you will receive written notification from the intercepting agency and the Oklahoma Tax Commission. To receive information regarding your intercepted refund, you will need to contact the agency that has intercepted your refund. The Oklahoma Tax Commission receives no information about the liabilities owed to other state agencies, district courts, municipalities, Department of Human Services, Housing Authorities or IRS.
The Tax Commission no longer holds refunds. Refunds are submitted to intercepting entities the day after the refund is processed. This is a relatively new procedure.
