Wisconsin withholding tables will not change for 2016

Wisconsin will not change withholding tables for wages paid on and after January 1, 2016. These rates are available in Publication W-166, Wisconsin Employer’s Withholding Tax Guide, for payroll periods beginning on or after April 1, 2014. In addition, all of the tables are reproduced in the Payroll Management Guide at ¶8798 and ¶8799. Employers must file and pay withholding deposit reports electronically if deposits were $300 or more in the prior year. In addition, the annual reconciliation must be filed electronically. If these requirements create an undue hardship, employers may request an e-filing/e-payment waiver by completing Form EFT 102, Electronic Filing or Electronic Payment Waiver Request. (Wisconsin Department of Revenue Withholding Tax Update 15-1, November 30, 2015.)
