Our corporation amended a 2012 return R&D refundable tax

Our corporation amended a 2012 return for a R&D refundable tax credit in Feb 2015. The Louisiana Dept of Revenue disallowed the credit because in 2012 we had a tax amnesty and they said therefore we could not amend that year. It took the State from Feb 2014 to Feb 2015 to tell me that the credit was disallowed. They held up my return for a year.I was just told we could amend 2013 for the R&D tax credit BUT in July 2015 the law changed from a refundable credit to a non-refundable credit and includes ALL tax years. The law further states "does not apply to credits claimed on orginial tax returns prior to July 2015". It is important to get refundable status because it's a large credit.My question is since we filed for the credit prior to July 2015 are we still entitled to a refundable credit if we are amending to claim the credit on a different year (2013)?

I need help with an injured spouse allocation question. are you married and I have a daughter with my husband. My husband owes back child support tour a child he had before we was married. I went to a tax personand they said that me and my daughter would not get any amount of the refund because I never had any income although the refund would not be what it is because of our earned income.the tax person told me that the refund amount would be kept by the IRS back child support. They said the whole amount would be kept. I don't see how this can be true because some of that income should be mine and my daughters. Could someone please explain this and help me I live in the state of Ohio.
