Utah issues revised state income tax withholding tables for use starting May 1, 2022
The Utah Tax Commission has updated its Withholding Tax Guide to reflect revised income tax withholding tables that apply for payroll periods beginning on and after May 1, 2022. The revisions to the withholding tax tables reflect legislation enacted earlier this year that lowers the state's personal income tax rate.
As previously reported, Governor Spencer J. Cox approved legislation under SB 59, which, retroactive to January 1, 2022, lowers the state's personal income tax from 4.95% to 4.85%. The law also adds a nonrefundable earned income tax credit and an expansion of the state's Social Security tax credit. (EY Tax Alert 2022-0501.)
Employers are instructed to withhold Utah state income tax according to information employees provide on the Federal Form W-4. (Utah Rules R865-91-14 and 15.)
