Has anyone received their economic stimulus payment from back child support due?
First the child support office that holds your case MUST tell the IRS that he owes back support, how much, his social, etc. Then when he files his return his social will be flagged in the IRS system. Next the IRS will HOLD up to his entire refund (depending on what he owes to you), but no more than he owes to you for a mandatory 3 months. They do this just in case there is an injured spouse or other legal claim filed. After the 3 month waiting period is up, the IRS will send the amount that they held to the child support office that requested it. The child support office then has to update their records, & they are allowed to hold it for an additional 120 days if they so choose. The cs office is not required to hold it that long, but can if they want to. THEN it gets sent to you like any other normal payment.
