- On cases with support arrears, interception of obligors' income tax refunds from the Federal and State Tax Offset Programs.
- Withholding of Unemployment Compensation for payment of support.
- Requests to the Internal Revenue Service for disclosure of taxpayer information for use in establishing and collecting support obligations.
The above referenced services are free and are offered by Trumbull County only to those who have registered for the Title IV-D Program.
If you are receiving public assistance, your case is automatically a IV-D case. If you have never been on public assistance, you may want to call us and ask.
