Wage Bracket Percentage Method Tables (for Automated Payroll Systems)

The Wage Bracket Percentage Method Tables show the gross wage brackets that apply to each withholding percentage rate for employees with up to nine withholding allowances. These tables also show the computation factors for each number of withholding allowances and the applicable wage bracket. The computation factors are used to figure the amount of withholding tax by a percentage method.

Kinds of tables.(p40)


rule

Two kinds of Wage Bracket Percentage Method Tables are shown. Each has tables for married and single persons for weekly, biweekly, semimonthly, and monthly payroll periods.
The difference between the two kinds of tables is the reduction factor to be subtracted from wages before multiplying by the applicable percentage withholding rate. In the tables for Computing Income Tax Withholding From Gross Wages on pages 41-44, the reduction factor includes both the amount for withholding allowances claimed and a rate adjustment factor as shown in the Alternative 2.— Tables for Percentage Method Withholding Computations on page 39. In the tables for Computing Tax Withholding From Wages Exceeding Allowance Amount on pages 45-48, the reduction factor does not include an amount for the number of allowances claimed.

Which table to use.(p40)


rule
spacer

Use the kind of wage bracket table that best suits your payroll system. For example, some payroll systems automatically subtract from wages the allowance amount for each employee before finding the amount of tax to withhold. The tables for Computing Income Tax Withholding From Wages Exceeding Allowance Amount can be used in these systems. The reduction factors in these tables do not include the allowance amount that was automatically subtracted before applying the table factors in the calculation. For other systems that do not separately subtract the allowance amount, use the tables for Computing Income Tax Withholding From Gross Wages.

Rounding.(p40)


rule
spacer

When employers use the Wage Bracket Percentage Method Tables, the tax for the period may be rounded to the nearest dollar. If rounding is used, it must be used consistently. Withheld tax amounts should be rounded to the nearest whole dollar by (a) dropping amounts under 50 cents and (b) increasing amounts from 50 to 99 cents to the next higher dollar. Such rounding will be deemed to meet the tolerances under section 3402(h)(4).

Instructions
A. For each employee, use the appropriate payroll period table and marital status section, and select the subsection showing the number of allowances claimed.
B. Read across the selected subsection and locate the bracket applicable to the employee's gross wages in columns A and B.
C. Subtract the amount shown in column C from the employee's excess wages.
D. Multiply the result by the withholding percentage rate shown in column D to obtain the amount of tax to be withheld.
         
1 If the gross wages are less than the amount to be subtracted, the withholding is zero.
2 You can expand these tables for additional allowances. To do this, increase the amounts in the subsection by $70.19 for each additional allowance claimed.

Instructions
A. For each employee, use the appropriate payroll period table and marital status section, and select the subsection showing the number of allowances claimed.
B. Read across the selected subsection and locate the bracket applicable to the employee's gross wages in columns A and B.
C. Subtract the amount shown in column C from the employee's excess wages.
D. Multiply the result by the withholding percentage rate shown in column D to obtain the amount of tax to be withheld.
         
1 If the gross wages are less than the amount to be subtracted, the withholding is zero.
2 You can expand these tables for additional allowances. To do this, increase the amounts in the subsection by $140.38 for each additional allowance claimed.

2 You can expand these tables for additional allowances. To do this, increase the amounts in the subsection by $304.17 for each additional allowance claimed.

Instructions
A. For each employee, use the appropriate payroll period table and marital status section, and select the subsection showing the number of allowances claimed.
B. Read across the selected subsection and locate the bracket applicable to the employee's gross wages in columns A and B.
C. Subtract the amount shown in column C from the employee's excess wages (gross wages less amount for allowances claimed).
Caution.—The adjustment (subtraction) factors shown in this table (instruction C) do not include an amount for the number of allowances claimed by the employee on Form W-4. The amount for allowances claimed must be deducted from gross wages before withholding tax is computed.
D. Multiply the result by the withholding percentage rate shown in column D to obtain the amount of tax to be withheld.
         
1 If the excess wages are less than the amount to be subtracted, the withholding is zero.
2 You can expand these tables for additional allowances. To do this, increase the wage bracket amounts in the subsection by $70.19 for each additional allowance claimed.

Instructions
A. For each employee, use the appropriate payroll period table and marital status section, and select the subsection showing the number of allowances claimed.
B. Read across the selected subsection and locate the bracket applicable to the employee's gross wages in columns A and B.
C. Subtract the amount shown in column C from the employee's excess wages (gross wages less amount for allowances claimed).
Caution.—The adjustment (subtraction) factors shown in this table (instruction C) do not include an amount for the number of allowances claimed by the employee on Form W-4. The amount for allowances claimed must be deducted from gross wages before withholding tax is computed.
D. Multiply the result by the withholding percentage rate shown in column D to obtain the amount of tax to be withheld.
         
1 If the excess wages are less than the amount to be subtracted, the withholding is zero.
2 You can expand these tables for additional allowances. To do this, increase the wage bracket amounts in the subsection by $152.08 for each additional allowance claimed.
