If an individual owes money to the federal government because of a delinquent debt, the Treasury Department can offset that individual’s federal payment or withhold the entire amount to satisfy the debt.
Child Support Offset
Child support offset from the fathers income tax in 2015 was 8 thousand. It took 8 months from the letter approving the offset to the day I received it. The fathers 2016 income tax offset is 6 thousand. Approved letter to the father came on February 16, 2017. Father is single, one son, and no joint account. So what takes the offset so long? It took me calling everyday, going to CSE once a week emailing everyone from IRS to child support to get the 2015 income tax offset. Please tell me it’s not to take that long to get the 2016 and income tax offset.
