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.
She is not obligated to do so. To address any concerns regarding the expenditure of child support funds, motion the court to establish a Trust Fund, allowing control under fe…deral trust fund rules for underage children. see link
Texas does not have a state income tax.
In Texas, the tax intercept will be given within 3 months if the noncustodial parent IS NOT married. However, if the noncustodial parent IS married, then they WILL HOLD th…e tax intercept for 180 days. Do NOT expect it sooner than 180 days. If your ex and his/her current spouse will sign a waiver to the child support for you to receive the tax intercept sooner, then it would be released almost immediately, once they have signed the form from OAG Texas. Again, just note, that it will be 180 days before receiving any money if your ex is now married. Even with that, you may be given only have of the income tax if the ex's new spouse files an Injured Spouse form. If your ex has any student loans, taxes that he/she still has to pay for, or if you yourself have recieved TANF, just know that the money goes to the government FIRST, then the last of the funds will be applied to your chlid support.
This depends on the state in which you live. I live in Indiana, and once the tax money has been received by the child support central collection unit for my state, they hold i…t 29 days from the day that they received it This is so the noncustodial has an opoortunity to fight the interception. Ive been dealing with this for years and I not once ever had the noncustodial fight the tax intercept. Then, the state takes $25 from the tax money owed to hold the money. Call your prosecutors office in the county that your case is in and they should be able to tell you more information on holding times. It can take up to six weeks from the time the refund is intercepted to the time it posts to the central collection unit. You have no legal means to get that money sooner. Be prepared to wait a long time.
Generally not. They would have to have enough income to have to pay taxes ...which would disqualify them from receiving welfare!.
Presuming you mean for taxes...as for lenders and such the answer may be different. . No. Child support payments are neither deductible by the payor nor taxable to the payee…. When you total your gross income to see if you are required to file a tax return, do not include child support payments received.
Yes, State Income Taxes are deductible against Federal income; not the amount you owe the state, but the amount you actually paid through withholding, prior year credits, paym…ents with the prior year state return, and/or estimated payments, during the calendar year for which you are filing Form 1040. You must file a 1040 Schedule A, Itemized Deductions in order to claim either state income tax or state sales tax on your return. Your total itemized deductions need to be greater than your Standard Deduction to be of benefit to you. If you file a Form 1040, and itemize deductions on Schedule A, you have the option of claiming either state and local income taxes or state and local sales taxes. (You can't claim both.) If you saved your receipts throughout the year, you can add up the total amount of sales taxes you actually paid and claim that amount. If you didn't save all your receipts, you can still choose to claim state and local sales taxes. You can even use the Sales Tax Deduction Calculator to figure how much state sales taxes you can claim if you decide to go that route. Using the Sales Tax Deduction Calculator To figure the amount of optional general sales tax you are eligible to claim, just answer a few online questions and the system does the rest. First select the year you are filing taxes for. Then, using your ZIP Code and just a few entries from your draft Form 1040, the Sales Tax Deduction Calculator will automatically figure the amount of state and local sales tax you can claim. You will see the results from your entries immediately on your computer screen. Even if state and local sales tax rates changed during the year (e.g., due to changes in state and local rates or because you moved your personal residence), the Sales Tax Deduction Calculator can handle it. Your entries are anonymous and the information is collected solely to allow you to determine your total allowable deduction. All entries are erased when you exit or start over.
Yes, the Department of Human Services can take some or all of your state and federal tax refunds to pay a child support debt.
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.

How long does it take for the custodial parent to receive a payment from the garnishment of federal taxe refun for back child support arrerages?
It can take up to 6 months to receive tax money if filing jointly or if filing single it can take up to 10 weeks
Generally, child support payments coincide with the frequency that the obligor receives income. How quickly the obligee receives those payments is a function of how efficient …the payor of income is in forwarding them to the State and how efficient the State is in distributing them.
You do not have to pay taxes on child support, it is not money you earned, it is money that is court ordered, though in cases where a woman targets specific men of high income… to get pregnant by, multiple times, perhaps it should be. An example is a woman who conceives a different child to a different man, each time receiving a full award. With different fathers, the total amount received can be 200-300% higher than what would be received from one father paying on three children.
