I didn’t receive any money through the offset program. Why?


There are no guarantees that any amounts will be collected through tax intercepts.


There are several reasons why a custodial parent does not receive amounts from Federal or State offsets:

  • The absent parent may not be eligible for a refund.
  • The absent parent may owe another debt for which the offset amount has been applied.
  • There may be money owed to the State of Indiana for past public assistance received by the custodial parent(s) on one or more child support cases.
  • The absent parent may not be required to file a Federal or State income tax return.
  • The absent parent may have elected to receive his/her refund throughout the year.
