So my son's father owes back child support and when my son was in daycare he never lifted a finger to help,well paid maybe three times out of the 2 years that he went meanwhile I struggled to work n pay and get back and forth to work for 2 years.Meanwhile he had it easy.He now works 2 jobs and still hasn't paid so they took his taxes and sent boxes checks to me.the issue is he thinks um suppose to let him know when the checks come and give the money back to him which I'm not saying a word.His son needs a lotof things so iI'm using the money for him.Would you keep the money or give it back?

Hell no I wouldn't give him the money back. Maybe if he paid it like he was suppose to he would get to keep his tax return.

Obviously they sent the checks to you for a reason. It's for your son and I would keep it.

The money goes to you because that amount is then deducted from his back child support that he owes.

So no, you don't give it to him at all....legally, it is yours.

Uh keep it! Why would u have to give it back! Child support is court ordered and that's what happens if you don't pay! My brother gets his taken every single year because he's behind. 

*edit* also remember this is what he owed so technically if u gave it back to him then that money is already garnished from his back child support.

DO not give it back!!! They take it because he owes you and they will credit that towards what he owes! If you give it back to him, it's like you are paying HIM for not paying! If he wanted to keep his taxes, then maybe he should've been paying all this time and then they wouldnt have interjected it.

Everyone else has nailed it. They sent it to you due to him owing you. Keep it.

My thoughts exactly.I'm not giving him anything.He just called again saying that they just told him that the checks will be sent to me and to call them and tell them how I wanna start receiving payments.I already got the money so I don't know why they would tell him that.my mom says he is lying.lol

Ok lol.I called them and they told me something totally different.also if they already sent the checks why would they even waste time telling him that In order to start getting the money all I have to do is call them.It just doesn't make sense.Either way the money is mines.
