Summary: New State Withholding Tax Tables Effective for Paychecks Issued On or After July 1, 2017
The Kansas Department of Revenue has issued new tables for the percentage method of withholding for 2017. Please note that the standard deduction for one withholding allowance remains unchanged at $ 2,250.00 per year in calendar year 2017. The attached tables are to be used in computing state tax withholding for wages paid on or after January 1, 2017. In order to use the attached tables, income must be annualized. To annualize income, multiply state taxable income for the current bi-weekly pay period by twenty-six pay periods. All checks issued on or after July 1, 2017, including adjustments processed for checks that were originally issued prior to July 1, 2017, will use the new withholding rates.
The Office of the Chief Financial Officer, Payroll Systems Team is responsible for making the necessary updates to the SHARP payroll system to implement the new withholding tax rates. Regents’ institutions are responsible for implementing the new withholding tax rates in their respective payroll systems.
