Indiana State Income Tax Withholding

Indiana requires employers to withhold income tax from employees' compensation and remit withheld amounts to the Department of Revenue.

Employers are required to withhold from wages regardless of the number of employees or the place wage payments are made.

Reciprocal agreements with Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin provide that Indiana employers need not withhold Indiana tax from wages paid to employees who reside in these states, but employers are urged to withhold the appropriate tax applicable to the employees' state of legal residence.

Register as an employer by filing Form BT-1 (Business Tax Application):

Employee's Withholding Exemption and County Status Certificate: WH-4

Withholding Method = Withhold at 3.3% for 2017 and 2016
Supplemental Rate = Withhold at 3.3% for 2017 and 2016
