IRS signIRS OFFSET: ATTACHMENT OF FEDERAL INCOME TAX REFUNDS

To qualify:

  1. You must be owed at least $500 if the child is not receiving welfare or payments must be $250 behind if the child is on welfare.
  2. State may hold payment for 6 months to allow a new spouse to claim part of any refund.
  3. Payments from IRS Offset collections pay off welfare arrears before arrears owed to family.
  1. State government child support agencies are required to automatically submit all open cases which qualify, welfare and non-welfare, annually, to the IRS Offset program

If you are owed back support and have never received child support due to the government attaching the non-paying parent’s income tax refund it may be because the non-paying parent is not filing tax returns, or does not receive a refund. Ask your case worker about your case being submitted for the IRS Offset.

IRS FULL COLLECTION SERVICE

This is one of the least known, toughest enforcement methods available. It is especially useful in difficult cases, and those where the non-paying parent places assets in someone else’s name.

Procedure:

  1. To qualify, $750 or more in back support must be owed.
  2. Government child support agency refers the case to IRS for enforcement. You must have a case open at the government child support agency. This enforcement method can not be done by yourself or by a private attorney.
  3. Other methods to collect must have been tried and failed.
  4. The State government child support agency may charge a fee for this service.
  5. IRS collects support using same process they use to collect back taxes.
