2020 FEDERAL WITHHOLDING TAX TABLES

For use at and after Jan 01, 2020 (Last updated Feb 15, 2020)

NOTE

The rules and calculations for Federal Tax Withholding have significant changes starting in 2020. The stated goal is to have more accurate withholding in order prevent surprise taxes owed because of under withholding, and to reduce large tax refunds.

Some of the more noticable changes are:
The W4 form is redesigned to indicate marital status, credits for dependents, and adjustments to withholding. The old W4 is still valid, and only new employees need to use the new W4's, or employees who change their tax status.
NOTE - You may print the new W4 form from the Payroll Menu. See the 'Form W4 View/Print' button.

The ZZ tables have additional info for standard personal allowances, resident alien adjustments, and medicare tax for wages over $200,000.

The US tables now include a Head of Household table. Also a new federal table 'UA' containing single, married, and head of household sections (see below) is required. It is used if step 2 on the new W4 is checked (2 jobs).

GREUX users

If you have not done so since the above date, you should Download/Install Updates for your Greux programs (File | Utilities | Download Updates). Then for every company that has a Payroll, get to the P/R Configuration/Tax tables window (shown below).
Select US and click on the "Update selected tax table" button. This will update the ZZ and UA tables also.

If you need tables for your State, then select your state and click "Update...". If your state is not there, contact KISS Development.

This is all you need to do to get the latest tables.

These Tax Table Masters are always available with the Payroll module.

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 included in your service contract.
