  • New Employer Withholding Instructions
    Starting in February 2014, the DSHS Division of Child Support (DCS) began issuing Income Withholding Orders with new withholding instructions for employers. The instructions provide options for employers who pay weekly or biweekly. Employers who pay weekly may withhold from the first four paydays each month (monthly amount divided by 4) and skip any fifth weekly payroll. And employers who pay biweekly may withhold from the first two paydays each month (monthly amount divided by 2) and skip any third biweekly payroll. The Division of Child Support prefers that employers withhold the full monthly amount each month if their payroll system allows. Additional information is available on the Employers - Income Withholding page and on the first page of the Income Withholding Order Cover Letter.
