Why did Missouri intercept my refund?

If you owe income taxes from a previous year, the Missouri Department of Revenue can seize your federal or state tax refund and apply it to your tax debt. Business owners can also have their refund seized if they owe sales tax, use tax, employer's withholding tax, or corporate income tax. You will receive a letter via USPS if adjustments are made.
