My sons father owes 39,000 in back child support. He filed taxes 6/6, his refund owed is 32,000. Anyone know how long it takes to process his return if it's entirely being offset? And how long before its sent to the state. We live in Illinois.
father parent must file his state tax return separately.
IRS has nothing to do with that.
If he has a large state refund, he should wait until his back-due amount is updated.
There is no penalty for filing late for a refund.
Sorry, I meant his federal return, not state. Thank u
With such a large refund, his tax return is likely to be flagged for manual review. If that happens, it could be 6 months or more before it's processed. The IRS is severely backlogged this year, and anything that requires manual attention takes many months.
