Re: Back Taxes, Child Support and Tax Refunds: Michigan
the other poster attempted to be nice about the statement yet you return and chastise. Fine. How about this then.
Your fiance has no reason that is acceptable short of being kidnapped and held against his will for not filing tax returns. He did screw up, big time. If he ever does file his taxes, there will be interest and penalties tacked on that would eat up most, if not all, of any small returns. Whatever is left will be intercepted by the CS office to pay on your fiances arrearages.
$12k is a lot of money and could get him tossed in jail for failure to pay especially since he owes the state, not the mother of his children. The state does not need the mother to initiate contempt charges to take action in this situation.
There, now you can look at the other posters info and not feel so offended by it due to the rough nature of mine in comparison.
Oh, and there are penalties and interest that accrue on the deliquency as well so small payments do not tend to reduce the total much.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
