Is it true that J1 applicants will no longer be able to file for federal tax refund? There have been rumours but I couldn't find any official source that states that.

Where have you heard this? I have not heard this at all. If you can't find any actual sources about this other than rumors then don't believe it.

Yes, It is true. Trump's new Tax cuts and jobs act removed those rights to use personal exemptions completely for the people who is not a US resident. 

 

J1, F1 students considered under this category. So there won't be a tax refund for Federal taxes. Only tax return you can get are from State taxes if you paid.
