If the other parent owes arrears on a child support order, any income tax refund due may be intercepted and applied to the arrears. For instance, if you used to receive Temporary Cash Assistance payments and the other parent`s State income tax refund is intercepted, it may be paid to you. If the other parent`s Federal income tax is intercepted, arrears to the State must be paid first. If you are currently receiving Temporary Cash Assistance payments, the other parent`s State income tax refund is also applied to arrears due to the State. If you never received Temporary Cash Assistance, the intercepted Federal or State income tax refund will be paid to you.
