When it comes to child support payments, there are different issues you may need to address. For example, perhaps you are concerned about being unable to pay child support and you worry about the potential consequences you may run into down the road, such as being taken into custody or unable to obtain a passport in the U.S. Moreover, falling behind on child support can also lead to the interception of your tax refund. In this post, we will look at other child support matters involving tax refunds.
For some people, tax refunds are a helpful boost. Those who have fallen behind on the child support they owe or anticipate financial challenges in the near future may allocate their tax refund toward child support payments. Having an influx of cash at a crucial time can be very helpful for non-custodial parents who are struggling to stay current, such as when one has lost his or her job or is facing medical problems they did not expect. Moreover, parents who cannot pay child support and have fallen behind on their payments may not be able to receive their tax refund due to the government intercepting it.
