Can arrears child support be taken from your social security check?
In most states, yes, child support can be taken from all forms of income except for needs-based income (such as food stamps or housing assistance). Social security does not count as needs-based assistance and can be garnished for child support.

Can social security back pay be garnished for child support arrears if so what Percentage can be taken?
Yes, and because this is back pay and not the current benefit, I believe it's possible that the State could take it all. . If this involves SSD, than no as there's also an SS…D retroactive child benefit check.
50% on top of a normal child support payment, not to exceed 55% of gross income. With interest penalties, but the time arrears are paid off, you will have paid 3-4 times the o…riginal amount. Of the reported amount of child support owed by the national media, only 17% is the actual amount owed. see links
no. how would they know?
If you are an employee and you have an employer you will NOT have any amounts withheld out of your net take home paycheck. You NEVER do have any deductions for federal taxes o…r other items from your net take home paycheck when it is issued to you. The net amount that is on the paycheck that you have in your hand is your net pay for the pay period after all of the federal taxes and other necessary withholding amounts have been withheld from your gross earnings by your employer payroll department. You should get the information from your employer payroll department if you really need to know the correct numbers or amount that should be deducted from your gross earnings not from your paycheck. It is possible that the one that is paying you is treating you as a self employed taxpayer (independent contractor) and will be issuing you a 1099-MISC at the end of the tax year for your business operation. If that is what is going on and it is not correct then you may have to contact your local IRS for some assistance with this matter. Go to the IRS gov website and use the search box for Form SS-8 If, after reviewing the three categories of evidence, it is still unclear whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor, Form SS-8, Determination of Worker Status for Purposes of Federal Employment Taxes and Income Tax Withholding (PDF) can be filed with the IRS. The form may be filed by either the business or the worker. The IRS will review the facts and circumstances and officially determine the worker's status. Be aware that it can take at least six months to get a determination, but a business that continually hires the same types of workers to perform particular services may want to consider filing the Form SS-8 (PDF). The information that is on the 1099-MISC is used to report the income that you received during the year using the 1040 income tax return and if the amount from the 1099-MISC is in box 7 nonemployee compensation then you are a self employed taxpayer. You will need to report that income, and any related expenses, on Form 1040, Schedule C, Profit or Loss from Business, or you may qualify to use Form 1040, Schedule C-EZ, TO determine your Net Profit from Business. You will also need to use Form 1040, Schedule SE, Self-Employment Tax to compute and report your social security and Medicare tax.
