First time filing injured spouse - please help
My husband and I were married in July of 2017 - he owes several thousand in back pay for child support. I have 2 children from a previous marriage so would I get more back filing separate or joint with injured spouse? I know that you don't get certain credits such as EIC when you file separate. I am just so scared the IRS will take my entire refund. We should get back $6000 filing joint but separate I would only get back $2000. Does anyone know how the IRS splits the refund if injured spouse is accepted?
