2018 Tax Charts

At the time of promulgation of the 2018 Tax Charts, the United States Congress was considering significant changes to the Internal Revenue Code. If the Internal Revenue Code is amended by Congress, then the Office of the Attorney General will promulgate revised 2018 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.

Employed Persons 2018 Tax Chart (.pdf)

Self-Employed Persons 2018 Tax Chart (.pdf)

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.

Notice of Rate Change to the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Maximum Disposal Rates and Opportunity for a Contested Case Hearing

In a letter dated September 22, 2017, Waste Control Specialists, LLC (WCS) submitted a request to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ or commission) to conduct an annual volume adjustment for the disposal rates found in 30 Texas Administrative Code §336.1310 for commercial low-level radioactive waste (LLRW) at the Compact Waste Disposal Facility (CWF) in Andrews County, Texas. The CWF is owned by the State of Texas and operated by WCS. The land disposal facility for LLRW disposal is located at 9998 State Highway 176 West in Andrews County, Texas. The following link to an electronic map of the facility's general location is provided as a public courtesy: http://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=32.4425&lng=-103.063055&zoom=13&type.

WCS's volume adjustment proposes to reduce the number and price of surcharges with the expectation that this would increase the volume of waste received for disposal. Other changes in the rate schedule being requested are: clarifying the source line is only for Class A sources; removing the biological line item; and reducing the surcharge amounts for curies, C14, Special Nuclear Material, weight, dose rate and cask handling.

The requested changes to the Disposal Rates are reflected in Figure 1. Note that in the figure language underlined designates new language and language struck through designates language to be removed.

Disposal Rates (.pdf)

OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTESTED CASE HEARING (CCH). A CCH is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in a state district court. The TCEQ may grant a CCH on this request if a written hearing request is timely submitted by the licensee or a party state compact generator. If the commission receives a timely hearing request from the licensee or a party state compact generator, a public hearing will be scheduled to determine if the rate adjustments requested by WCS are fair, just, and reasonable.

TO REQUEST A CCH, YOU MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS IN YOUR REQUEST: your name, mailing address, phone number, a clear and concise statement that you are requesting a CCH, and if you are a compact generator, provide the generator's licensing numbers indicating the location or locations where the compact waste is generated. Written comments may be submitted to Derek Baxter, MC 205, Office of Legal Services, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, P.O. Box 13087, Austin, Texas 78711-3087, or faxed to (512) 239-4808. Electronic comments may be submitted at: http://www1.tceq.texas.gov/rules/ecomments/. File size restrictions may apply to comments being submitted via the eComments system. All requests should reference Non-Rule Project Number 2018-013-OTH-NR. Requests must be received by January 29, 2018, which is at least 30 days after this notice was published in the Texas Register. Generators must initiate a request for a CCH by filing individual requests rather than joint requests. Following the close of all applicable request periods, if the executive director (ED) receives a hearing request, the ED will directly refer the application to the State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH) for a CCH.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ACTION. Unless a hearing request is received from the licensee or an eligible generator, no hearing will be held and the ED will issue final approval of the ED's recommended rates. Upon the commissioners' approval for rulemaking, the final approved rates will be established by rule as the maximum disposal rates for disposal of compact LLRW. If a timely hearing request is filed, the ED will not adopt the revised rates and will forward the matter to SOAH for a hearing.

AGENCY CONTACTS AND INFORMATION. Please be aware that any contact information you provide, including your name, phone number, email address and physical address will become part of the agency's public record. Further information may also be obtained from TCEQ's Radioactive Materials Division, MC-233, P.O. Box 13087, Austin, Texas 78711-3087 or by calling Bobby Janecka, Radioactive Materials Section Manager, at (512) 239-6415.
