Ordered Deductions

In certain situations, such as child support collection orders, garnishments, and IRS tax levies, the City is required to deduct funds from an employee's paycheck.

Some types of Ordered Deductions include:

Child Support

Federal and state laws require OPA to implement support collection orders against affected City employees.

If OPA receives an income execution against you from the City Marshals or the City's Office of the Sherriff, it will garnish 10% of your gross salary, unless a lower amount is specified in the income execution.
