If a father owes back child support can money be taken from his banking account without his permission?

No. The custodial parent or state child support agency would need to file suit, obtain a judgment and then use the judgment to levy the obligated parent's bank account, or the account holder would need to voluntarily allow withdrawal of funds. A judgment is not necessary for an obligated parent's tax refund (state or federal) to be seized for back child support.
