I’m concerned about issues related to taxes and back child support. If I owe back child support money, will the IRS hold my refund or delay my refund?
Yes. The Bureau of Fiscal Service (BFS) might delay or offset your refund to pay your debt.
For child support tax refund concerns, contact your debt agency to determine if it submitted your tax debt for a tax refund debt offset. If you need the agency’s address and phone number, call either of these:
- BFS — 800-304-3107
- TDD — 866-297-0517
If your debt was submitted for offset, the BFS will take as much of your refund as needed to pay off the debt and send it to the agency you owe. The IRS will then give you a check or direct deposit for any remaining refund.
