Wtf- tax refund

Dh was unemployed for a couple of months and we got behind on child support. I knew they would take it from our tax refund. I understand. Not a problem. What I'm mad about is that they took almost $1000 more than what they said they would. Does anyone know why? Do I just have dh call the dhs office and ask where the money disappeard to?

  • I know. They took the money we owed, but then took an extra $900- something. I don't mind paying money we owe, but the letter didn't say we owed that and dh has been paying since the end of December so I know it's not new debt.

  • Interest maybe? Does he have online access to see the payments?

  • Maybe but you'd think that would be in the letter. No I don't think he set anything up to let him look online.

  • It's government.....it doesn't always make sense. I'm willing to bet somebody messed something up in the computer. The system says my ex owes me $500 and he actually isn't even ordered to pay me anything anymore due to changes in placement. I would for sure have your hubby call about it. In the meantime find everything you can to prove how much should have been taken out of your taxes.
