Tax Question

Posted by on Feb. 12, 2012 at 7:24 PM

Me and my husband were married last year so we filed joint this year for our taxes.  We were very happy with the amount that we were getting until we got a letter from the irs stating.... Your refund has been applied to a past due obligation such as child support, another federal agency debt, or state income tax. The Financial Management Service, who issues IRS refunds, will send you a notice informing you of the reduction...So now my question to you ladies is since this debt is fully on his end ( we did our research and found out it was his student loans ) I was going to fill out the injured spouse form and file it because I was the only sole worker for my family and the debt was not mine.... So do you guys know how they calculate it... Will I get my full EIC and what about the unearned part how do they calculate this since he is a stay at home dad and doesnt work and I do?...

If I were you I would just suck it up and have to money go towards this debt. Student loans never go away. If you want to own a home, file taxes jointly or get another loans you need that debt gone. The sooner the better.

Um no. It's not a scam and it's perfectly legal.

OP, I've filed the injured spouse form before and when I did it I got my portion of the taxes back. They calculated based on the percentages of who earned more and paid more. This is how it worked for us several years ago, so if it's the same and he hasn't worked at all this last year then you should receive your full return back. HOWEVER it may have changed. I would call the IRS or a CPA and ask them.
