2018 FEDERAL WITHHOLDING TAX TABLES

Updated for use at and after Jan 01, 2018

NOTE

The Single and Married tables below reflect these changes. Supposedly most people will notice less tax withheld.

The Greux ZZ tables below are the same as for 2017, except that the Social Security wage limit has increased to $ 128,400, and the Federal W/H allowance is $4150. These new rates will be in place as soon as you update your tax tables .

Be careful NOT to update your tables until after you have run your last payroll and have backed up your PR data that will be used for 2017 W-2s.

OBAMACARE NOTE

The tables below DO NOT reflect an additional .9% employee Medicare withholding for individual wages over $200,000. The employer does NOT match that amount. This could be accomplished by defining a new deduction if needed. The new requirement will be accomodated in future updates.

If the tax rates for your state have changed, let us know. We do not monitor all state withholdings rates. That is your responsibility as an employer. However if yours did change and we don't have the new rate, we will ask you to send us a copy of the state's computer formula (annualized). We will update the calculations and include in the master tables used above.

For Greux users this service is free, unless you require telephone assistance.
