Federal Tax Withholding

Federal tax withholding tables guide employers in determining the amount to withhold from employee paychecks for taxes.

Calculating Tax Deductions

Federal income tax withholding tables assist employers in calculating tax deductions based on employees' W4 forms and pay frequency.

Two methods, Wage Bracket and Percentage, help determine federal income tax withholding for employees based on their wage ranges.


In 2023, while some aspects of tax withholding remain consistent, adjustments to income tax tables occur annually due to inflation changes.

Automated Payroll

Automated payroll systems are recommended to ensure accurate withholding calculations and compliance with changing tax rates.
