No, Savannah, there is no way to file so that they can get out of having returns held for garnishment. But, it would depend on whether or not the state has filed a child support hold on him with the federal government.

And, I'm not certain that they'd be able to tell you for sure if they had filed something. I would say, though, that it's worth a check from you, to see if they have.

There is no such thing as filing taxes "under the table". You either file taxes, or you don't. There is no in between on that. If he has earned taxable income that was reported to the government, and he doesn't file a return, they'll come after him for that. If he does file a return, and your state has a garnishment on his returns for back child support, then they'll take his return.

He can earn wages "under the table" by working only for cash, but if he's received a paycheck, and would be due a refund at tax time, his refund will be held by the government to cover obligations filed against it.

Ok, it sounds to me like they have already filed with the IRS, if they said that it will come out when he files. It's usually automatic on your end. You are receiving state benefits, correct? If so, then you have nothing to worry about. The state is covering you, and they are getting that coverage returned to them through the garnishment of his taxes. He should also have the option to have his regular wages docked, in lieu of the taxes being held.

But, regardless, if you are receiving benefits, he will, at some point, end up paying you and the state back.

So do i need to call the child support office to find out if they have a garnishment on his returns? Because i was told which i didnt believe that the person is that filed his taxes know how to do it so they wont be able to take out for backpay which i didnt understand for the simple fact i didnt think you could do that.
