Can the irs take my tax refund for student loans?

I had managed to pay off my student loans through an assistance program offered by a corporation. Though the creditor bought back the loan, I defaulted again when I lost my job. I went to the corporation but found the they had already sold the account to a collection agency. If the collection agency don't succeed in garnishing my wages, could they be able to take my tax refund, which I'm expecting on coming week.

They might take it. Call 1-800-304-3107. It's automated. You just have to put your SSN and you might have the information you want.
