Answer Only if the person qualifies under the IRS guidelines for dependents. If the action is taken to avoid the seizure of a tax refund for chi…ld support arrearages it is a federal criminal offense and all participating parties would be subject to prosecution.
If a father of a child gets married and owes back child support can the new spouse be obligated to pay back back his child support in Texas with income tax refunds?
If you file joint and your tax refund gets intercepted, then you would have to file a "wounded spouse" form to get your portion of the refund. But beware, the child supp…ort office could hold the refund up to 6 months to clear all the paperwork before you get anything back.
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.

That is odd. Here in this state Maine it is noted as a child support payment and does go as such on records, when given to the custodial parent for past due child supp…ort owed as such a payment to child support and should be a credit towards the child support owed. You need to check with your State Child Support as you did not mention the State you are in. But where it is federal it should be with all states, not just one. But you need to check with the Child Support Enforcement of your state as to why it was not put down as a payment for past due child support and why you were not credited for the amount as of yet. You do have the right to call and ask as the non custodial parent and it is your money that was taken away. So you do have the right to know why.
Yes, states can withhold any form of income to recover back child support, including a federal tax refund.
It is unlikely that a tax refund would be garnished for past due medical bills. Generally refunds can only be garnished for certain things, and medical bills really ar…en't one. Tax refunds are garnished in instances of: child support arrearages past due federal tax past due state income tax unpaid federal student loans government program repayments However, if you deposit it into an account that they have the right to garnish, the funds lose their identity as a tax refund.
Yes. State refund must be claimed as income on your federal return.
That depends on factors such as how efficient your State's child support agency is at distributing payments and whether the obligor has appealed the intercept.
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.
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.

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.
Do you mean how do you find out if you have an unpaid tax debt from a previous year? Call the IRS 1-800-829-1040 and ask. Then call your state tax agency and ask. Do you m…ean how to figure out whether you will owe any taxes this year (or another year for which you have not yet filed)? Fill out a tax form and see if there is a balance due at the end. If you don't know how, there are a lot of web sites that will fill out your taxes for free and only ask you to pay when you are done and it is time to file.
Answer No. Child support is generally based upon the obligated parent's monthly income from wages and any other source. A tax refund …is not always for the same amount nor always applicable and therefore could not be counted as an income source. A tax refund can be seized for child support arrearages.
Yes, States can intercept your refund via the Treasury Offset Program.
Unfortunately, the same thing is happening to us. The tax software told us that our income was too high to claim the child tax credit. The sad thing is my husband has been une…mployed for over 6 months and our income is still too high, therefore I think they should lower the income levels...
