If me and my ex partner owes tax credits can I insist the tax office include it in my iva, because the tax office said they won't put this in my iva and pursue my ex partner for the full amount, is this legal?

If you are jointly responsible for the tax credits claim, then you are jointly responsible for the repayment of any overpayment --- so, yes, they can pursue your ex partner for the money and can do whether or not it is included in your IVA.

Some overpayments are able to be included in an IVA and, as far as I understand, some are not and it boils down to how the overpayment has arisen.

The overpayment is included provided it is listed on the most recent final award notice. However HMRC will pursue a joint debtor although they usually only pursue the remainder after making allowance for their dividend return in the IVA.
