OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL 2009 TAX CHARTS Pursuant to 154.061(b) of the Texas Family Code, the Office of the Attorney General of Texas, as the Title IV-D agency, has promulgated the following tax charts to assist courts in establishing the amount of a child support order. These tax charts are applicable to employed and self-employed persons in computing net monthly income. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE To use these tables, first compute the obligor's annual gross income. Then recompute to determine the obligor's average monthly gross income. These tables provide a method for calculating "monthly net income" for child support purposes, subtracting from monthly gross income the social security taxes and the federal income tax withholding for a single person claiming one personal exemption and the standard deduction. Thereafter, in many cases the guidelines call for a number of additional steps to complete the necessary calculations. For example, 154.061 - 154.070 provide for appropriate additions to "income" as that term is defined for federal income tax purposes, and for certain subtractions from monthly net income, in order to arrive at the net resources of the obligor available for child support purposes. If necessary, one may compute an obligee's net resources using similar steps.

Footnotes to Employed Persons 2009 Tax Chart: * An employed person not subject to the Old-Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance/Hospital (Medicare) Insurance taxes will be allowed the reductions reflected in these columns, unless it is shown that such person has no similar contributory plan such as teacher retirement, federal railroad retirement, federal civil service retirement, etc. These amounts represent one-twelfth (1/12) of the annual federal income tax calculated for a single taxpayer claiming one personal exemption ($3,650.00, subject to reduction in certain cases, as described in the next paragraph of this footnote) and taking the standard deduction ($5,700.00). For a single taxpayer with an adjusted gross income in excess of $166,800.00, the deduction for the personal exemption is reduced by one-third (1/3) of two percent (2%) for each $2,500.00 or fraction thereof by which adjusted gross income exceeds $166,800.00. The deduction for the personal exemption is no longer reduced for adjusted gross income in excess of $289,300.00. For example, monthly gross wages of $15,000.00 times 12 months equals $180,000.00. The excess over $166,800.00 is $13,200.00. $13,200.00 divided by $2,500.00 equals 5.28. The 5.28 amount is rounded up to 6. The reduction percentage is 4.0% (1/3 x 2% x 6 = 4.0%). The $3,650.00 deduction for one personal exemption is reduced by $146.00 ($3,650.00 x 4.0% = $146.00) to $3,504.00 ($3,650.00 - $146.00 = $3,504.00). For adjusted gross income in excess of $289,300.00 the deduction for the personal exemption is $2,433.33. *** The amount represents one-twelfth (1/12) of the gross income of an individual earning the federal minimum wage from July 24, 2008 through July 23, 2009 ($6.55 per hour) for a 40-hour week for a full year. $6.55 per hour x 40 hours per week x 52 weeks per year equals $13,624.00 per year. One-twelfth (1/12) of $13,624.00 equals $1,135.33. The amount represents one-twelfth (1/12) of the gross income of an individual earning the federal minimum wage after July 24, 2009 ($7.25 per hour) for a 40-hour week for a full year. $7.25 per hour x 40 hours per week x 52 weeks per year equals $15,080.00 per year. One-twelfth (1/12) of $15,080.00 equals $1,256.67.

***** For annual gross wages above $106,800.00, this amount represents a monthly average of the Old-Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance tax based on the 2009 maximum OldAge, Survivors and Disability Insurance tax of $6,621.60 per person (6.2% of the first $106,800.00 of annual gross wages equals $6,621.60). One-twelfth (1/12) of $6,621.60 equals $551.80. ******This amount represents the point where the monthly gross wages of an employed individual would result in $7,500.00 of net resources. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * References Relating to Employed Persons 2009 Tax Chart: 1.

Footnotes to Self-Employed Persons 2009 Tax Chart: * ** Determined without regard to Section 1402(a)(12) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (26 U.S.C. 1402(a)(12)) (the "Code"). In calculating each of the Old-Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance tax and the Hospital (Medicare) Insurance tax, net earnings from self-employment are reduced by the deduction under Section 1402(a)(12) of the Code. The deduction under Section 1402(a)(12) of the Code is equal to net earnings from self-employment (determined without regard to Section 1402(a)(12) of the Code) multiplied by one-half (1/2) of the sum of the Old-Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance tax rate (12.4%) and the Hospital (Medicare) Insurance tax rate (2.9%). The sum of these rates is 15.3% (12.4% + 2.9% = 15.3%). One-half (1/2) of the combined rate is 7.65% (15.3% x 1/2 = 7.65%). The deduction can be computed by multiplying the net earnings from self-employment (determined without regard to Section 1402(a)(12) of the Code) by 92.35%. This gives the same deduction as multiplying the net earnings from self-employment (determined without regard to Section 1402(a)(12) of the Code) by 7.65% and then subtracting the result. For example, the Social Security taxes imposed on monthly net earnings from selfemployment (determined without regard to Section 1402(a)(12) of the Code) of $2,500.00 are calculated as follows: (i) Old-Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance Taxes: $2,500.00 x 92.35% x 12.4% = $286.29 (ii) Hospital (Medicare) Insurance Taxes: $2,500.00 x 92.35% x 2.9% = $66.95 *** These amounts represent one-twelfth (1/12) of the annual federal income tax calculated for a single taxpayer claiming one personal exemption ($3,650.00, subject to reduction in certain cases, as described below in this footnote) and taking the standard deduction ($5,700.00). In calculating the annual federal income tax, gross income is reduced by the deduction under Section 164(f) of the Code. The deduction under Section 164(f) of the Code is equal to one-half (1/2) of the self-employment taxes imposed by Section 1401 of the Code for the taxable year. For example, monthly net earnings from self-employment of $15,000.00 times 12 months equals $180,000.00. The Old-Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance taxes imposed by Section 1401 of the Code for the taxable year equal $13,243.20 ($106,800.00 x 12.4% = $13,243.20). The Hospital (Medicare) Insurance taxes imposed by Section 1401 of the Code for the taxable year equal $4,820.67 ($180,000.00 x .9235 x 2.9% = $4,820.67). The sum of the taxes imposed by Section 1401 of the Code for the taxable year equals $18,063.87 ($13,243.20 + $4,820.67 = $18,063.87). The deduction under Section 164(f) of the Code is equal to one-half (1/2) of $18,063.87 or $9,031.94. For a single taxpayer with an adjusted gross income in excess of $166,800.00, the deduction for the personal exemption is reduced by one-third (1/3) of two percent (2%) for each $2,500.00 or fraction thereof by which adjusted gross income exceeds $166,800.00. The deduction for the personal exemption is no longer reduced for adjusted

gross income in excess of $289,300.00. For example, monthly net earnings from selfemployment of $15,000.00 times 12 months equals $180,000.00. The $180,000.00 amount is reduced by $9,031.94 (i.e., the deduction under Section 164(f) of the Code -see the immediately preceding paragraph of this footnote for the computation) to arrive at adjusted gross income of $170,968.06. The excess over $166,800.00 is $4,168.06. $4,168.06 divided by $2,500.00 equals 1.67. The 1.67 amount is rounded up to 2. The reduction percentage is 1.33% (1/3 x 2% x 2 = 1.33%). The $3,650.00 deduction for one personal exemption is reduced by $48.55 ($3,650.00 x 1.33% = $48.55) to $3,601.45 ($3,650.00 - $48.55 = $3,601.45). For adjusted gross income in excess of $289,300.00 the deduction for the personal exemption is $2,433.33. **** For annual net earnings from self-employment (determined with regard to Section 1402(a)(12) of the Code) above $106,800.00, this amount represents a monthly average of the Old-Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance tax based on the 2009 maximum OldAge, Survivors and Disability Insurance tax of $13,243.20 per person (12.4% of the first $106,800.00 of net earnings from self-employment (determined with regard to Section 1402(a)(12) of the Code) equals $13,243.20). One-twelfth (1/12) of $13,243.20 equals $1,103.60.

***** This amount represents the point where the monthly net earnings from self-employment of a self-employed individual would result in $7,500.00 of net resources. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * References Relating to Self-Employed Persons 2009 Tax Chart: 1.
