Your second stimulus payment is non-taxable. The CARES Act allows you to garnish your initial stimulus payment (approved in advance payments in April 2020). However, the rules were amended for the 2nd and 3rd payments.
Will the IRS withhold the federal stimulus rebate payments for unpaid child support debt?
Only the first round of stimulus back payments were subject to withholding as part of a pending debt. The 2nd (approved January 2021) and 3rd (approved January 2021) restitution of child support is not refundable unless paid.
What if I am married to someone who owes child support, will my federal stimulus rebate payment be applied to the child support arrears they may owe?
Yes, it is possible that your federal stimulus rebate payment could be applied to your spouse’s child support arrears if they owe any federal or state debts. This can depend on your jurisdiction’s laws and regulations regarding child support services. The federal government may intercept and apply stimulus payments to past-due child support payments, tax debts, and other obligations.
However, if you filed a joint tax return with your spouse and are not responsible for the child support arrears, you may claim an injured spouse allocation to protect your share of the stimulus payment. This allocation can help you keep your portion of the money owed in the stimulus payment and prevent it from being applied to your injured spouse’s claim other’s debts.
You should contact a local child support agency or a tax professional for specific guidance on federal tax refunds for your situation.

The federal Office of Child Support Enforcement extended the time for state child support payments from May 30 to September 30, 2021, if regulations determine a delay in child support payment to your spouse. The IRS will do its part for your payments. If your payments are incomplete and you are preparing to file for 2020, you can file now. You must complete this worksheet to repay the debtor tax credit and receive your part of the payment even if the payment was intercepted as payment for your husband’s child support payments.
