Your tax refund cannot be intercepted for the debts of a dependent claimed on your tax return.

There is a form (injured spouse form) that u can file to keep your portion, if your spouse owes any debt that u aren't responsible for ....this will get you your portion of your refund back while taking the other portion to pay said debt. As far as dependants go I don't believe there is a form for that and I was unaware that they even did that unless you were married to the person that owes.

I have the same question.  BUT, im the one that owes arrears. I have worked this year and i have been paying due to a wage attachment. My boyfriend and i both work but he made more and i was wondering if he claimed me as a dependent, if they would take his whole tax since my arrears are greater than what he will get back. also, people may comment that " people who dont pay the support are garbage" kindly shut up.

No, if someone claims you as a dependent and YOU owe arrears, their refund cannot be garnished for your arrears.

So they'll take whatever the person you're claiming portion instead of what you are getting back for yourself?

Huh?  No.  They won't take any of your refund if your dependent owes for something.

Yes the irs can take your tax refund. They will only take the part for the dependant you filed. You will get portion.

Their portion want be taken. But the person who owes portion will be taken. Your information is false. Not every state is the same. Some take all the refund. An some take only that dependants portion.

Re: Your tax refund cannot be intercepted for the debts of a... My Ex wronged me n I owe him c.s. for my sons he took away. I have a son who is my dependent whom isn't my exes biological son. Why can’t I get a little back to use on him? Seems unfair. In Colorado, they seize my bank accounts, took my drivers license, and expect me to live making $4.00 an hour ($12.00 before 60% garnish), n it being A negative mark on my credit score...  How in the hell am I to get on my feet with $32k debt with that crap holding me down? Tell me, can anyone survive on $4.00 an hour n not get any taxes back?
