Taxing child support recipients: Federal law leads to Michigan withholding $25

The Grand Rapids Press explains why custodial parents in Michigan will be paying the federal government $25 per year from the child support they receive.

Kyla King writes (excerpt):
“The Michigan legislators determined that it would be handled in this way,” she said.

The fee potentially affects about 240,000 cases of the state’s 700,000 cases, Stephen said.

About $16 of each $25 collected will be sent to the federal government.

The remainder will be funneled into the state’s child support program.
