I'm the non-custodial parent and I received a letter stating that my child support case has been vacated and arrears under $500 or no arrears exist. Can i do taxes this year and get a refund? My child support case was closed December 11,2017.
If you are asking whether the State would grab your refund to sastify arrearages, it appears not based upon the contents of the letter. It appears there is no basis for the state to take any of your refund.
The information provided above does not, and is not intended to, create an attorney/client relationship. Consult with an attorney so that he/she can fully evaluate the facts and circumstances of your case and provide appropriately tailored legal advice.
If you do not owe any child support arrears. The state should not take your federal tax return. You should probably try to get a certified copy of the court order vacating the child support order, so if there are any issue you could can provide it to the IRS,
The answering of this question is just friendly advice, and in no way legal advice, nor create an attorney-client relationship. For legal advise you should contact an attorney with detailed information about your situation, so he or she can better assist you. - Scott Weiss, Esq. www.weinerweiss.com
