Right of offset of taxes could not be exercised without relief from the automatic stay.
Issue: 
Was the United States entitled to retroactive modification of the automatic stay pursuant so that it may retain funds received from the Department of the Treasury as an offset or was debtors' claim of exemption in the refund superior to the right of setoff?
