January 9, 2013 (see **Important notice below)
|The enhanced Excel™ Child Support calculators, updated releases of Version 8, are now available for download and public use. To access the calculators, click the green icon below, "downloadable Excel Calculators.”|
The Excel calculators are updated as design changes, enhancements and required statutory changes are completed. Please visit this site periodically to check for updates to the calculators and download the updated version you wish to use.
Annual Notice: Pursuant to O.C.G.A. §19-6-53(a)(3)(B)(iv), the Child Support Commission has the statutory responsibility to adjust formulas used with calculating applicable self-employment taxes as related changes occur in the federal tax laws. This adjustment is made each year at the beginning of the month of January and applies to Line 3 of Schedule B. It is recommended that you download the electronic calculators in January of each year to ensure you are using an electronic worksheet that includes this statutory adjustment.
Version 8 of the calculators and subsequent versions released on or after September 1, 2009, includes the statutory change to the Low Income Deviation as required in HB 145. See O.C.G.A. §19-6-15(i)(2)(B).
(Includes: Paper and Pen standard worksheet and schedules, and new Paper and Pen EZ short worksheet)
To access Georgia’s Excel child support calculators, click the “Downloadable Excel Calculators” green icon. The Excel child support calculators will run using Microsoft Excel 1997 or later for the PC, and Microsoft Excel 2004 and 2011 for the Mac. After clicking the green icon, another web page will display where one can download the Excel calculator of choice by clicking one of the four flags. The first two flags (green and yellow) allow access to the electronic versions of the Excel calculators; while the last two flags (orange and purple) allow access to the paper and pen versions (Georgia Standard Child Support Worksheet and Schedules long form and the new pen and paper EZ Worksheet short form) of the calculators. The two downloadable Excel electronic calculators include built-in formulas for calculations and permits printing of the forms. All of these calculators are accessed via the Internet for download and should be saved to a hard drive, jump or thumb drive, disk or CD-ROM where they can later be transported to another computer or accessed, if necessary.
It has come to our attention that several websites are hosting “calculators” to estimate Georgia child support. Please be cautious if using these calculators. In a simple test, one calculator’s monthly support was off by $100, and another was off by $990!
We do wish to thank those whose web sites provide accurate information about Georgia child support and provide a link to the official calculators.
