Currently, because some entertainersare paid in cash for an appearance on the road, it is too easy for them to hide income from Child Support.
Doing so prevents their children (and the single parent raising them) from receiving the financial support in which they are entitled.
Unfortunately, there is no known tracking system established to keep track of the compensation of entertainers. For entertainers behind in their child support payments, that needs to change.
Club/event/show promoters can show they care about the children of these entertainers by willingly adopting and implementing a system of payment so that the entertainers they hire can be held accountable for outstanding child support and/or alimony responsibilities before spending on frills and non-necessities.
From the cover of Heart & Soul magazine, my name is Robin Goings and my congressional goal is to see this option for payment made into law.
This new method of payment would require that all outstanding child support/alimony, and IRS tax obligations be deducted prior to the release of funds to the entertainers with outstanding child support.
If this proposed bill is made into law, I will also work to make sure that club/event/show promoters be given a significant tax break for implementing such a responsible method of payment.
Your signature on this petition shows that you are a concerned citizen who will support the events of promoters in support of my congressional bill.
Also, your signature will not only show the children of irresponsible entertainers that you care, but entertainment promoters that you want them to as well. Please join me!
