I've never heard of mortgage support before, but there's no deduction for it.
If you mean that you pay the mortgage directly to the bank then you can deduct the interest for the amount you pay on Sch A. It's a good idea to discuss this with the other individuals on the mortgage who make payments so you don't over or under deduct the applicable amount.
Timothy Denison's answer The penalty varies from plan to plan. You can check with the plan administrator to determine exact amount. It is unlikely that the IRS is even aware of the pension plan, do very doubtful that they will be able to seize money.
Cary B. Hall's answer Your ex-wife's employment (or lack of it) and/or remarriage isn't relevant. What matters is any agreement about who gets to claim the kid for tax purposes. If there's no agreement, then the parent with primary physical custody gets to claim the child. If there *is* an agreement, then you follow that.
Kathryn Hilbush's answer If he's not current on his support obligation, you should definitely take him back to court for failure to comply/contempt. If he's paying his support every month, and he's also paying at least an additional 10% of the order to reduce the arrears, it may be more difficult to get any where in court but I say talk to your Domestic Relations Office to see if they's assist you. In some counties, they'll freeze bank accounts if the arrears are high enough, even with the additional 10% being paid...
Peter N. Munsing's answer You need to speak with a tax attorney who handles Pennsylvania issues. I can recommend Kelly Erb. Tell her I gave you her name. You will have to pay for the consult. A good Pennsylvania CPA would be another thought.
Frank Huerta Jr's answer Unfortunately you are liable for your tax liability if there was not enough withholding. The government holds the taxpayer responsible to review their checks for the proper withholding amount. It would be a different story if they took your withholding and did not forward it to the government, in that case you would sue your employer.
Peter N. Munsing's answer Generally if you agree to a lien for the amount they may withold. Most entities have regulations allowing you to ask for an exception. You may have some protection as a disabled person--call your state representative; also call the county disability rights advocate.
Peter N. Munsing's answer Your wife is obligated to the holder in due course of the note. You want to make sure you keep a log with date, time, identity of the person you speak with, and generally conduct things via snail mail. Yes hard copy and stamps. You save a copy of everything you get.
You get something from them, you save the envelope.
You send it you make a copy.

Linda Simmons Campbell's answer They can try to work out a payment arrangement with their town. If the taxes are more than a year old and no liens have been filed, they may be able to declare bankruptcy. If the town has already filed liens then the liens will stay even if they declare bankruptcy and a payment arrangement will be their only option.
Eric Steven Day's answer If she is simply gifting the proceeds to the children they would not have to pay tax on the proceeds. If her name was on the deed and she paid the taxes associated with the sale, she can distribute when she feels. She may however have to file another tax return if the gifted amount is more than $14,000 each child.
