  • Mine was credited to my child support account, BUT, it takes 37 days to process( to be deposited into my bank). I'm in MO, so you may want to call and ask if you aren't. It's been the same every yr for me, and I called to be sure and they said the same thing this yr.. He's still 2000.00 behind, even with the credit, but I have to wait. Oh well I never count on it anyway.

  • State they don't hold and federal they will hold for 60 days unless he is remarried then they will hold it for 6 months so the wife can file an injured spouse claim.

  • usually get mine a couple of months after i get my tax return which doesn't tell how long it was held for but just that they didn't file as soon as i did. anything past 90 days would worry me.
