Notice to withhold binding upon employer; employer may deduct amount for reimbursement of costs; electronic transfer of payments by employer; duty of employer to disclose information; immunity.
A notice to withhold income is binding upon any employer of an obligor to whom it is mailed. To reimburse the employer for the employer’s costs in making the withholding, the employer may deduct $3 from the amount paid the obligor each time the employer makes a withholding.
Except as otherwise provided in subsection 3, if an employer receives notices to withhold income for more than one employee, the employer may consolidate the amounts of money that are payable to:
The enforcing authority and pay those amounts with one check; and
The State Treasurer and pay those amounts with one check,Ê but the employer shall attach to each check a statement identifying by name and social security number each obligor for whom payment is made and the amount transmitted for that obligor.
If the provisions of NRS 353.1467 apply, the employer shall make payment to the enforcing authority or the State Treasurer, as applicable, by way of any method of electronic transfer of money allowed by the enforcing authority or the State Treasurer. If an employer has 50 or more employees, the employer shall make payment to the Division of Welfare and Supportive Services by way of any method of electronic transfer of money allowed by the Division. If an employer makes payment by way of electronic transfer of money pursuant to this subsection, the employer shall transmit separately the name and appropriate identification number, if any, of each obligor for whom payment is made and the amount transmitted for that obligor.
An employer shall cooperate with and provide relevant information to an enforcing authority as necessary to enable it to enforce an obligation of support. A disclosure made in good faith pursuant to this subsection does not give rise to any action for damages resulting from the disclosure.
As used in this section, “electronic transfer of money” has the meaning ascribed to it in NRS 353.1467.
