    Nope. Sorry. There doesn't seem to be any penalty for those who don't do their tax on time . I'm in the same boat.

    That's beyond despicable.

    I'm in a similar boat, but mine owes me more like 6 grand.

    I wish the money accrued interest.

    No, actually interest isn't enough. There needs to be steep financial penalties for nonpayment, plus a permanent black mark on their credit record.

    How awful for you both ^^ my ex only has to pay $15 a week and doesn't even do that! Plus he is self employed so they can't even garnish his wages/tax return. CSA is a bit of a joke TBH..

    What annoys me is that the gov could punish these people but they don't. There are no penalties for not paying child support. It's an absolute joke. Hopefully things will change in the future.

    The department of Human Services website does say they can enforce tax return lodgements in the instance of overdue CS payments. https://www.humanservices.gov.au/cus...pport-payments

    Also read that there are penalties for late payments but they're paid to the government, not the receiving parent. Frustrating when you consider if you are left short, you may encounter dishonour fees, rental breaches etc. A flawed system all over!

    I haven't read the link but i have never heard of any instance where they have done this. Maybe other posters have?

    It sure is. There are penalties for being late with your rego, rent, morgage, bills, blah blah but child support is apparently not important. These men know they can get away with it.
