Texas Tax: Texas passes Child Support e-payments Legislation
The State of Texas recently passed legislation requiring employers to remit their child support payments electronically to the Texas State Disbursement Unit (SDU). In doing so, Texas joins nine other states: California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Nebraska, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Virginia that already have legislation or regulations requiring employers to remit their child support payments electronically. The criteria for determining whether your company must submit electronic payments vary by State.
Effective September 1, 2009, employers in Texas with 250 or more employees must remit child support payments electronically within two business days after pay date. Texas offers the following web-based payment service, which is free to employers:
Texas also offers free ACH software to employers for e-payments. For more information, contact Steven Oberle of the Texas SDU at 210-334-6504 or email@example.com
