Will I Still Receive My Stimulus Check If I Am Behind On Child Support Payments?
Let me begin by saying that the state child support agencies, report people who are behind and the amount of the arrears to the Treasury Department.
The Treasury Department then collects the overdue child support by cutting or withholding federal payments as an offset. So the stimulus check, what they’re stating is that the amounts will be about per adult or for a married couple and an additional per child. Dependent on the amount of the child support arrears that you owe, the IRS may reduce that amount you receive if you do have the past child support payments that have been reported from the state to the Treasury Department.
In other words, if you are behind on your child support payment and it has been reported by the state to the Treasury Department, then your stimulus check could be reduced by the amount that you owe. Or, depending on your amount owed it could be completely eliminated.
So check and see what you are entitled to by the stimulus check and what you owe as child support arrears to give you an idea of what you can and cannot expect from the stimulus check.
