New York State (NYS) has modified personal income tax withholding rates effective January 1, 2013. The supplemental tax rate is 9.62%.
In certain circumstances (such as employees who have more than one job, or married employees if both spouses work), the new rules may result in an insufficient amount of tax being withheld for New York State and Yonkers. In these situations, completion of a revised Form IT-2104 to prevent under-withholding is suggested. Also, employees who filed a 2012 Form IT-2104 based on the tax rate increase for tax year 2012 should complete a new 2013 Form IT-2104. For more information, see New York State's Withholding Tax Computation Rules, Tables and Methods documents.
