|Form 12.996(d).||23-0-0||Deletes Form 12.996(d) in response to amendments made to Form 12.996(a). The amendments previously made to Form 12.996(a) were in response to the Florida Supreme Court’s referral requesting that the Committee adopt an approach to address the confusion with respect to the existing federal and Florida income deduction order and notices. The Committee recommends deleting Form 12.996 (d) as the proposed amendments to 12.996 (a) include Form 12.996(d).|
