Getting the biggest return when filing your taxes can help you pay off your child support arrears.
The Child Support Division uses many techniques to enforce child support orders, including intercepting federal income tax refund checks. Parents who qualify for the federal tax refund intercept are able to use their tax refund to pay toward past due child support. Qualifying noncustodial parents may benefit from accessing free tax preparation services and filing taxes by claiming tax credits and refunds.
The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) is a program operated by the U.S. Department of the Treasury. It offers free tax help to those who generally make less than $54,000 a year, persons with disabilities, the elderly, and limited English-speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their tax returns.
