My now estranged husband applied and received food assistance in 2003-2004 for himself and our 4 children, while we were living in the same house hold. He had no job, so in order for him to receive help, he had to use my income on the application. I was not one of the applicants on the application. Our daughter went to college and he never reported her leaving the home for a short period of time, 3 months from Sept - Dec 2003. The county is saying they overpaid him. The overpayment was $806 dollars. He never repaid the debt and now the county is trying to take my state taxes/renters rebate to repay the debt. Is this legal since I was not one of the recipients/applicants and is the debt too old for the county to collect? What is the statute of limitations for this type of matter?
