Will your tax return be taken for child support?

Will your tax return be taken for child support?

If you owe back payment for child support (also known as "arrears"), the IRS may levy your tax return.  To determine how much you owe in arrears (and ensure that the Department of Child Support Services ("DCSS") has not miscalculated the arrears which may result in an artificially inflated amount), contact an attorney at Claery & Green, LLP.  We can assist you with obtaining an accounting of your payments.  If the accounting from DCSS is incorrect, an attorney at Claery & Green, LLP can assist you with correcting your total amount owed.  It is important to obtain an accounting before filing your taxes so you can ensure that the correct amount, if any, is deducted from your tax return and or prevent an inappropriate withholding of your tax refund.  Contact an attorney at Claery & Green, LLP today for more information.
