Tax question...if my spouse owes $ 12,000 on child support .. How much will they take out of OUR tax refund ?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Can we block them from taking it?

Actually, if she had income that contributed to that return she can file a wounded spouse and they can't touch her portion. It's not her responsibility to pay his CS.

Quoting MysticalKnight:

They will take it all. Nothing you can do about it.

Why wouldn't you want them to take it? Isn't it the priority to get caught up on it?

They can take it all. Maybe you should be more concerned as to why your deadbeat hubby owes $12,000 in back child support than how to block it.

Can't you file injured spouse and they only take 25% or does it not work that way for child support?

File an injured spouse form so you get your share and only his will be taken.

No, I don't believe you can block them. Child support owed (along with defaulted student loans and unpaid state taxes) can be taken out of a tax refund and it's perfectly legal.

As the the percentage they can take out, I am unclear if they can take all of it or only a fraction.

They'll take all of it. Only way you can get it to stop would be if you would file an injured spouse claim, then the IRS will figure out what your portion is and not take that.
