You don't owe for every cent she received in TANF.
You owe the amount of the court order, starting with the effective month of the court order.
You don't pay the state anything. That is support, you owed for the children, and the state advanced it to the other parent, in hopes that you would pay what you owe, and they oould accept it as repayment for support.

If you paid as much as you owed, according to the court order, then there is no arrrearages, and your refund will not be attached.
If you started out four months behind (common), and never made up those months, then there are arrearages, and your refund will be attached.
The state does not get any money, other than repayment. The taxpayers receive no benefit from you paying your obligated support payments.

Get all the orders and your proof of payments. Prepare a spreadsheet. Copy everything and send it to the agency with a claim for the overpayment. To answer your question, yes they can. If there is any question that you owe the public money they will withhold it knowing that you will come to them to prove otherwise.

If you owe back support to the state, they can take your federal refund. The money she received from the state to benefit HER is her obligation. But she was probably eligible for whatever she got only because it was for the baby. So, yeah, it's all on you. Sucks, but true.

If your caught up on your back support and making court ordered payments every month like your suppose to then I don't see why they would take anything from your tax.
