I attended a community college in Iowa over 6 years ago. Evidently, they are now holding my taxes to pay back a Pell Grant return due to withdrawing from classes. If it’s been longer than 6 years, are they able to collect on this debt?

I informed them by email that I was waiting for my tax return because I saw that there was a one-time Maintenance increase for an owner agreed on repairs. I have asked them to work with me but...
