Base support rate for one child, for unimpoverished obligors, begins at 16%. For incomes
exceeding defined thresholds, the percentile applied to the excess income is reduced.
Income between 75% and 150% of the level defined in the 2018 Federal Poverty Guidelines for a single-person household is
subject to a reduced child support income percentage. The dependency on FPL guidelines dictates that the poverty table
will need to be reissued each year as the FPL is released.
Nevada draft legislation
remains unclear regarding how the FPL is based on "household size", while the supplied poverty table applies poverty levels for
single-householders even as it adjusts support for multiple dependent children.
Zoom in on the data near the poverty level to
see how the percentile gradually increases through that range (and the corresponding dollar amount
follows a slight curvature vs the rest of the diagram).
Support percentages for income below 75% of the FPL level are not defined in the current draft legislation.
Following is the poverty table excerpted from the Public Workshop Notice:
