Does Homebase support deduction / garnishment payment to third parties?
Homebase does not support remittance of any garnishments to third party agencies with the exception of child support garnishments. Homebase Payroll supports remittance of child support garnishment payments in all 50 states and Washington D.C.! Read more about child support garnishments in this Help Center article.
For non-child support garnishment types, you need to send the payment to the garnishing agency or appropriate party. When you run a payroll including a post-tax deduction for an employee, you’ll see notifications regarding the requirement to send this payment in the payroll confirmation screen & on the payroll details page:
