Income Tax Withholding(p3)

previous topic occurrence Income Tax Withholding next topic occurrence

There are several ways to figure income tax withholding. The following methods of withholding are based on the information that you get from your employees on Form W-4, Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate. See section 9 of Publication 15 (Circular E) for more information on Form W-4.
Deposit
Adjustments are not required when there will be more than the usual number of pay periods, for example, 27 biweekly pay dates instead of 26.

Wage Bracket Method(p3)


rule

previous topic occurrence Wage Bracket Method next topic occurrence

Under the wage bracket method, find the proper table (on pages 7-26) for your payroll period and the employee's marital status as shown on his or her Form W-4. Then, based on the number of withholding allowances claimed on the Form W-4 and the amount of wages, find the amount of federal tax to withhold. If your employee is claiming more than 10 withholding allowances, see below.
If you cannot use the wage bracket tables because wages exceed the amount shown in the last bracket of the table, use the percentage method of withholding described below. Be sure to reduce wages by the amount of total withholding allowances in Table 1 on this page before using the percentage method tables (pages 5-6).

Adjusting wage bracket withholding for employees claiming more than 10 withholding allowances.(p3)


rule
spacer

The wage bracket tables can be used if an employee claims up to 10 allowances. More than 10 allowances may be claimed because of the special withholding allowance, additional allowances for deductions and credits, and the system itself.
Adapt the tables to more than 10 allowances as follows:
  1. Multiply the number of withholding allowances over 10 by the allowance value for the payroll period. The allowance values are in Table 1, Percentage Method—2009 Amount for One Withholding Allowance, later.
  2. Subtract the result from the employee's wages.
  3. On this amount, find and withhold the tax in the column for 10 allowances.
This is a voluntary method. If you use the wage bracket tables, you may continue to withhold the amount in the "10" column when your employee has more than 10 allowances, using the method above. You can also use any other method described below.

Percentage Method(p3)


rule

previous topic occurrence Percentage Method next topic occurrence

If you do not want to use the wage bracket tables on pages 7-26 to figure how much income tax to withhold, you can use a percentage computation based on Table 1 below and the appropriate rate table. This method works for any number of withholding allowances the employee claims and any amount of wages.
Use these steps to figure the income tax to withhold under the percentage method.
  1. Multiply one withholding allowance for your payroll period (see Table 1 below) by the number of allowances that the employee claims.
  2. Subtract that amount from the employee's wages.
  3. Determine the amount to withhold from the appropriate table on page 5 or 6.

Example.(p3)
spacer

An unmarried employee is paid $600 weekly. This employee has in effect a Form W-4 claiming two withholding allowances. Using the percentage method, figure the income tax to withhold as follows:
1.Total wage payment $600.00
2.One allowance$70.19 
3.Allowances claimed on Form W-4     2 
4.Multiply line 2 by line 3 $140.38
5Amount subject to withholding (subtract line 4 from line 1) 
$459.62
6.Tax to be withheld on $459.62 from Table 1(a)—single person, page 5 
$ 45.14
To figure the income tax to withhold, you may reduce the last digit of the wages to zero, or figure the wages to the nearest dollar.

Annual income tax withholding.(p3)


rule
spacer

Figure the income tax to withhold on annual wages under the Percentage Method for an annual payroll period. Then prorate the tax back to the payroll period.
taxmap/pubs/p15t-004.htm#en_us_publink1000145152

Example.(p3)

A married person claims four withholding allowances. She is paid $1,000 a week. Multiply the weekly wages by 52 weeks to figure the annual wage of $52,000. Subtract $14,600 (the value of four withholding allowances for 2009) for a balance of $37,400. Using the table for the annual payroll period (Table 7(b)) on page 6, $2,812.50 is withheld. Divide the annual tax by 52. The weekly income tax to withhold is $54.09.

Alternative Methods of Income Tax Withholding(p3)

Alternative Methods of Income Tax Withholding

Rather than the Wage Bracket Method or Percentage Method described above, you can use an alternative method to withhold income tax. Alternative Methods for Figuring Withholding on page 36 describes some of these alternative methods and contains:
Additional alternative methods explained on page 36 are annualized wages, average estimated wages, cumulative wages, and part-year employment.

Advance Payment Methods for the Earned Income Credit (EIC)(p4)


rule
spacer

previous topic occurrence Advance Earned Income Credit (EIC) Payment next topic occurrence

To figure the advance EIC payment, you may use either the Wage Bracket Method or the Percentage Method as explained below. You may use other methods for figuring advance EIC payments if the amount of the payment is about the same as it would be using tables in this booklet. See the tolerances allowed in the chart in Other methods on page 36. See also section 10 in Publication 15 (Circular E) for an explanation of the advance payment of the EIC.
The number of withholding allowances that an employee claims on Form W-4 is not used in figuring the advance EIC payment. Nor does it matter that the employee has claimed exemption from income tax withholding on Form W-4.

Wage Bracket Method(p4)

If you use the wage bracket tables on pages 29-35, figure the advance EIC payment as follows.
Find the employee's gross wages before any deductions using the appropriate table. There are different tables for (a) single or head of household, (b) married without spouse filing certificate, and (c) married with both spouses filing certificates. Determine the amount of the advance EIC payment shown in the appropriate table for the amount of wages paid.

If you do not want to use the wage bracket tables to figure how much to include in an employee's wages for the advance EIC payment, you can use the percentage method based on the appropriate rate table on pages 27 and 28.
Find the employee's gross wages before any deductions in the appropriate table on pages 27 and 28. There are different tables for (a) single or head of household, (b) married without spouse filing certificate, and (c) married with both spouses filing certificates.

Whole-Dollar Withholding and Paying Advance EIC (Rounding)(p4)


rule
spacer

The income tax withholding amounts in the wage bracket tables (pages 7-26) have been rounded to whole-dollar amounts.
When employers use the percentage method tables (pages 5-6) or an alternative method of income tax withholding table, the tax for the pay period may be rounded to the nearest dollar.
The wage bracket tables for advance EIC payments (pages 29-35) have also been rounded to whole-dollar amounts. If you use the tables for percentage method of advance EIC payments (pages 27-28), the payments may be rounded to the nearest dollar.
