No. The IRS doesn't withhold refund for state unemployment.You are probably safe. Your state would have to file suit against you and win in order to get a judgement. If they get a judgement they can pursue your assets, garnish your wages or your tax return. However, that would take a long time to happen, so your tax refund is safe.
In the meantime, contact your state and protest the overpayment. If you don't protest, the state's position will be deemed correct, whereas if you protest you will be given an opportunity to present your side (a hearing in Florida) and if you are correct the overpayment will be removed.
