Does back child support affect taxes?

Whether you are a non-custodial parent who is obligated to pay child support or you are responsible for raising a child and are not receiving the child support that you are owed, you may be going through different challenges on a daily basis. It is important for parents who are struggling with child support to be aware of some of the consequences that come with child support delinquency. For example, if you have fallen behind on child support in Washington, or another Illinois city, you should know that your taxes could be affected.

According to material published by the Internal Revenue Service, back child support can affect one's tax refund. In fact, your refund could be offset by the Bureau of the Fiscal Service if you have failed to pay child support. In the event that this garnishment occurs, you will receive a notice. Moreover, you should also recognize some of the other ways that child support delinquency can affect your life, whether you plan on applying for a passport or are worried about your wages being garnished.

For parents on each side, child support matters can generate quite a bit of stress and make life tough. As a result, anyone who is facing these hurdles should closely explore their options. As an example, a non-custodial parent could be able to set up a payment plan or even have their child support order modified. It is pivotal to keep in mind that nothing in this blog post should be interpreted as legal advice.
