If back child support is owed but you are paying on it and you are getting an IRS tax refund Do you get the refund or is it used to pay on your child support?
I actually pay child support to my son's father (all for the sake of a better schooling system) and my tax refund is always taken, as a matter of fact, anything in the form of… payment with my social security number is taken to pay back child support. I always receive a letter from the dept. of taxation titled: offsset, but it's always all taken. I once won $1500 on a lottery scratch off and that was intercepted by child support! I have other children, not the same father as my son and I live in low income housing and I am always behind in payments, plus the arrears. I am told the only way to break this cycle of what I call "Voluntary Poverty" is to die or claim bankruptcy...and I don't know which is actually more helpful.
It depends. Usually, no, you will not get your tax return, or stimulus payments. It all depends on how much you owe in back child support. They will take your returns un…til your entire back-support is paid to zero. They will notify you by mail if they have elected to intercept your returns. If they haven't, and you still want to know for sure, you can call the local office that is in charge of your case and they should be able to tell you.
I was just online with the Where's my refund status and it was approved, then at the bottom is says read note related to your return. I read it and it states that they can tak…e all or part of my tax return for items such as child support, another federal agency debt or state taxes. However, I had an assessment of state taxes that I have been paying on that I have been paying for months and now they can take the rest. I don't see how they can do that if you have a payment arrangement. The government can do whatever pleases them I guess. Just an FYI, you might file, but you might not get if you owe them, but you need them, you will wait, so unfair.
This could be possible. The Department of Treasury's Financial Management Service (FMS), which issues IRS tax refunds, has been authorized by Congress to conduct the Treasury …Offset Program. Through this program, your refund or overpayment may be reduced by FMS and offset to pay any past due child support, Federal agency non tax debts, or state income tax obligations. Go to www.irs.gov and use the search box for Topic 203 - Failure to Pay Child Support, Federal Non Tax and State Income Tax Obligations http://www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc203.html For additional information, FMS can be reached at 800-304-3107.

Why do you have tax topic 203 on your refund status if you don't owe any non-tax federal or state income taxes or child support?
Past--due child support, Federal agency non--tax debts, state income tax obligations or certain unemployment compensation debts owed a state (namely debts for compensation tha…t was paid due to fraud or for contributions due to a state fund that were not paid due to fraud). You can contact the agency with which you have a debt, to determine if your debt was submitted for a tax refund offset. You may call FMS at the number below for an agency address and phone number. If your debt was submitted for offset, FMS will take as much of your refund as is needed to pay off the debt and send it to the agency you owe. Any portion of your refund remaining after offset will be issued in a check to you or direct deposited for you. FMS will send you a notice if an offset occurs. The notice will reflect the original refund amount, your offset amount, the agency receiving the payment, and the address and telephone number of the agency. FMS will notify the IRS of the amount taken from your refund. Contact the agency shown on the notice if you believe you do not owe the debt or you are disputing the amount taken from your refund. If a notice is not received contact FMS at 800--304--3107 or TDD 866--297--0517. The available hours are Monday through Friday 7:30AM to 5:00PM CT. Contact the IRS only if your original refund amount shown on the FMS offset notice differs from the refund amount shown on your tax return.

Can the entire amount of a state and federal tax refund be taken with a injured spouse form how much can they take?
Yes, absolutely. Your refund check is simply money in your wallet, a credit to your bank account. If you owe money to anyone -- the IRS, your mortgage lender, your cousin Vinn…ie -- they must be paid, period, end of story. If you owe more than everything you have, you can beg to relatives, pawn stuff, liquidate all your belongings in an end of the world yard sale, but if even all that is not enough, then probably bankruptcy is your best refuge. If it's simply a matter that your refund is $10,000 and your injured spouse liability is $11,234, then all you need to do is dip into savings to pay the remaining $1,234, not covered by the refund check
