The only way…
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 until 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…
