The Court affirmed the interception of the Petitioner’s state tax refund to offset her outstanding student loan debt with the Georgia Student Finance Authority.  The Court concluded that both the controlling law and the terms of the promissory note made clear that any tax refund owed to the Petitioner could be subject to interception in the event she defaulted on her loan.
