Question Can they hold my tax return because of a federal student loan?

I am and have been past due on my student loan. I have 2 loans, one federal, and I believe the other is a state loan; I'm not sure. I know that I will be getting a large check when I file my taxes. Last year I got about $5,000 becuase of Earned Income Credit. I earned a little more this year than I did in 2008, so I am expecting about the same return- unless they can garnish my return to pay off my student loan or even worse take everything thats owed out of it.
i hope not
