Support Collection Unit
600 S. State Street, 5th Floor
Syracuse, NY† 13202
This letter is in response to notices I have received for both an income execution and suspension of my driverís license.† The account number associated with these is: BE41364P1, and Docket No: F54098
I have enclosed copies of my Federal and State returns for 1997, my W-2ís for 1998, and a payment stub from this year.† The present income execution of $120/week has taken a lot out of my pay and I wondering if the amount should be reduced because of the Self Support Reserve which you mention in the letters ($10,449 for 1996).† I have done some rough calculations and I hope you will be able to correct the figures based on the raw data I have supplied.† If you have any questions, please contact my attorney, Mr. James Stern. He is familiar with the facts. His office phone number is: 475-4010.
My pay rate has remained the same at work from 1998.† It is $7.50/hour, totaling $15,000/year.† There are deductions of $1800 for Federal Income Tax, $930 for Social Security, and $217 for Medicare - leaving $12, 048 from employment at Software Workshop.††
If I am able to teach a class at OCC, the income should be similar as recorded in the W2. Total gross income of $2,334 with deductions of $144.70 for Social Security and $33.80 for Medicare - leaving $2,155 from potential employment at OCC.† This would give a total amount of:† $14,203
If the support reserve for 1999 is $10,449, that would leave: $3,754
Prior to these executions I had been making payment of $60/week for 1998, which totaled to approximately:† $3,120 ($650 below the reserve)
To withhold at $120/week would be: $6,240 (well above the reserve).† Presently the pay deduction is capped by the 40% of pay figure mentioned in your letter.
I hope you will be able to adjust the notice sent the company.
