Receiving Tax Offset For Child Support
My ex-husband called my children back in April and stated that his Federal income tax return was taken to pay his back child support. Last year he called and stated the same thing but it took almost 2 months before I actually received it. I am trying this year to see how long it may actually take to receive the tax money. I have called the child support recovery office and they have stated that they do not see anything in their system pertaining to the tax return. Why is this information not available to the custodial parent? This type of information should be readily available for the custodial parent to view or know. I would like to receive every dime he owes me and it would be nice if I could receive it right now. Taking care of two teenage daughters on my own is not easy, especially when the non-custodial parent does not help at all. Is there any way to find out when I may actually receive this tax money?
