Taxes and Caps: 2013 Changes to Texas Child Support

Expect two big changes to Texas child support in 2013. Higher social security and Federal income taxes on January 1, 2013 will decrease parent's take home pay and decrease child support as calculated under the Texas guidelines for 2013. But on September 1, 2013 high wage earners will pay more child support when the cap on maximum monthly net resources on which child support is figured rises from $7,500 to $8,550 per month.

For general information, go to "Child Support and Medical Support in Texas" or use the new 2013 Texas Attorney General's Tax tables to calculate Texas guideline child support.
