Husbands Back Child Support And My Tax Return
My husband owes child support to the state of California. I have two children from a previous marriage the state of California will not recognize in determining his monthly payment. However, upon filing our taxes, the State of California took ALL of our return, not just his part of the return, as well as the money he received for supporting the same children California will not recognize because they are not biologically his. Is there anything I can do now that the taxes have already been filed and accepted so that I can get at least some of my own tax return back?
Also, when filing future taxes, I've noticed that the requirements for claiming EIC are to file "Married filing Jointly". If you don't, you can't get EIC. These children are not our mutual children. How should I file future tax returns so EIC can still be claimed?
