If my husband owes back childsupport, can they garnish OUR tax return if we file jointly?!?!

You file together and submit the Injured Spouse form.  CS will only take his portion.

Yes but you can file a form to get your share back, but it takes forever before you will see a dime

Why do you assume he's a deadbeat?

Wouldn't you want to use your tax refund to get caught up?

Yes they can take yours! File an injured spouse form. This means it will be taken from his and you will still get all yours!

Because he doesn't pay child support.

yes...to not get all of it taken there is some form called injured spouse or something that will let you keep your portion.

They'll only take his portion. But you have to file the injured spouse form, and preferably as soon as possible.
