Disposable income for the purpose of this withholding order means that part of the earnings of an individual remaining after deduction from that income of amounts required to be withheld for the payment of federal, state, and local income taxes, employment taxes, normal retirement contributions, union dues and initiation fees, and group life and health insurance premiums. Second, 85% of the first $145.00 per week of disposable income are legally exempt from this withholding order. Use the table on page 3, SECTION II, to compute the obligor's disposable income each week and the amount available for withholding. See page 3, SECTION II, for additional information on computing withholding. For tribal orders, you may not withhold more than the amounts allowed under the law of the issuing tribe. For tribal employers who receive a state order, you may not withhold more than the amounts allowed under the law of the state that issued the order.
