170.0000 COLLECTION OF TAX BY BOARD

Annotation 170.0007.110

(a) IN GENERAL

170.0007.110 Earnings Withholding Order on Seaman's Wages. Pursuant to 46 U.S.C. section 11108, wages due or accruing to a seaman on a vessel in the foreign, coastwise, intercoastal, interstate, or noncontiguous trade or an individual employed on a fishing vessel or any fish processing vessel, may not be withheld under the tax laws of a state or a political subdivision of a state. Therefore, an employer was required, under federal law, to refuse to honor the Board's Earnings Withholding Order.

However, 46 U.S.C. section 11108 does not prohibit withholding wages of a seaman on a vessel in the coastwise trade between ports in the same state if withholding is under voluntary agreement between the seaman and the employer of seaman. 7/31/95.
