In determining the disposable income of an obligor, the obligor may claim offsets against gross receipts for ordinary and necessary business expenses and taxes directly related to the income withheld. The obligor has the burden of proof and must furnish documentation to support any offsets claimed.
The Department of Justice may adopt rules governing the determination of the income subject to withholding that remains after application of offsets. Withholding actions in a case that is not receiving support enforcement services under ORS 25.080 (Entity primarily responsible for support enforcement services) may be appealed to the circuit court.
