Would you call this extortion?

My ex owes 5k in child support and was in court for contempt, when he went on welfare in a last minute effort to save himself. So now that he's on welfare, the child support agency is going after me to repay it. When I informed him of the situation, he sent me a text saying

"Drop the child support case and I'll get off aid. I need a written statement to the Child Support Agency asap"

I told him that tax evasion is illegal, as he works under the table and only claims taxes on odd years, when he has to claim our child and gets a refund.

Is this extortion and is this illegal?
