Maryland withholding tables to remain the same for 2015

The Maryland withholding tables will not be changed for wages paid on and after January 1, 2015. Maryland provides separate withholding tables for the convenience of employers who do not withhold using an automated or computerized system, or who prefer to look up the amounts to be withheld manually. For these tables, Maryland will continued grouping the local income tax withholding rates into rate brackets. For 2015, employers will use the same fourteen withholding brackets: 1.25%, 2.25%, 2.40%, 2.50%, 2.60%, 2.65%, 2.80%, 2.85%, 2.90%, 3.00%, 3.05%, 3.10%, 3.15%, and 3.20% as last year. Although Carroll County’s actual “income” tax rate will change to 3.03%, the “withholding” table to be used remains the same table (3.05%). All of the tables are reproduced in the Payroll Management Guide beginning at ¶6618. (Comptroller of Maryland Withholding Tax Facts January 2015 – December 2015.)
