Ok well child support is taken out of the other parents taxes who arnt paying there child support! You can do this by having his wages garnished at his work place. That way when he gets payied it come out auto mad..! and no you they dont take them out bc the state pays you, and now they owe the state. Some cases maybe like that, but not all, dont be closed minded while on this subject. In cases that people do not recive any help through the state the money that is taken out of the income tax goes to the parent who is providing for the children. In some cases this is the only money the providing parents see all year. While they are left to support there children finacully all year round.

Here where I live, my friend has actually gotten back from her ex husband's federal refund for back support.

Our state return was never affected, Sarah, but our joint federal was. (and that was only for the one year that we got married).

And, pretty much any state in the US, driving privileges, hunting, etc are rescinded until back support obligation is met.

If this person (OP) does have an active child support case, and the ex is filing returns, then he's getting his returns held. However, the IRS doesn't automatically send that money to the ex, they send it to the state that the ex is receiving state assistance from, to cover the cost to the state for the assistance. In Wyoming, a portion of that (and the garnished employee is told how much) goes to the back support obligation, and payroll is garnished for the rest.

Either way, this OP is never going to see money from the IRS in payment of the back child support. That's what her enforcement order is taking care of, and any monies she receives are directly from the state.

Sheena, You said he is way behind in his support. How is that if it is garnished from his wages? How far back does it go? In my state he would not be able to renew his driver's license without paying up. If his wages are garnishes, then talk to whomever is in charge of that about getting the tax return.
Here is a question for all the moms: Would it be just the state return or the federal return that would be held?

The only thing blocking her does is that she can't access your profile... and you can't access hers. She is still free to post whatever she wants on your post. You don't get to control that.

Ms. Swain (At least I've got the courtesy to spell your name correctly), if you cannot be bothered to adjust your method of input so that your posts can be more readily understood, no skin off my nose.

Grow up.

Now, since you probably didn't read beyond my advice to turn off autocorrect...

You're never going to "get" his taxes. That's not how it works. If you've got a support agreement set in place in the courts, and his taxes are being held, its because you're on state support, and the state is taking his tax returns to pay for the services that they are providing to you. If you want better support enforcement, ask your caseworker to request garnishment of his pay.

"If you have that kind of phone you'd understand"...Nice try. Turn off autocorrect and t9 spelling.

If your ex is court ordered to pay support, and isn't, then his returns are being kept. This doesn't mean that you automatically GET his refund, it means his refund is given to the state to cover the expenses that the state is covering for you. It doesn't go against his back support obligation.

I agree with Raye and the others. Those agencies are not going to hurry up and do the work you have to get after them to do so. I am not sure the IRS is going to give you the money directly. If he does get anything Child Suppport enforcement needs to be doing that. And get yourself a lawyer.

Sheena, maybe we would understand you better if you didn't abbreviate or misspell words and if you used punctuation properly to form correct sentences. Is English not your first language?

What I gather from your post and comments is that: the father works and money is taken from his check for child support, however he is still behind on previous payments and you want his tax refund given to you also. Correct?

Are you sure he gets a refund? Depending on the exemptions he claims on his W-4, he may not be getting a refund. If he gets a refund and you are not getting payment for back support, you need to talk to your case worker, the IRS and/or a lawyer.

Also, if he files taxes he must work. You can have child support payments taken directly from his check.

If you have court orders and he is behind in child support, files taxes, and gets a refund... it would be automatically taken out. If he is getting a refund and you are not being paid back support... I would be talking to your CSEA or a lawyer and find out what it going on.

Is it court ordered that he claim the child on his taxes? Because if it is and he is behind child support enforcement can take the amount he gets back and give it to you to repay the back support he is behind. If not, why are you allowing him to do the taxes this way? I do not understand that they won't do anything to get it for you.

Have you taken this to child support enforcement? Who has the right to claim the child on taxes? Do you even have court orders in place?
