Question: For New Jersey child support, why are the number of tax allowances on Appendix IX-H or Circular E higher than I expect?

Answer: You get allowances for the party and for each child. But New Jersey rules add other reasons for allowances as well.

These include, for Appendix IX-H:

  • An additional allowance if the party is filing as head of household.
  • An additional allowance if the party has a for new spouse (if any).
  • An additional allowance for additional dependents.
  • And additional allowance for low income.
