Important notice: Payroll Federal Tax Withholding Tables for CY 2011

January 13, 2011

The Making Work Pay tax credit (provided for by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009) expired Dec. 31, 2010. Federal tax tables have been adjusted, and as a result, you will see an increase in the amount of income tax withheld from your pay, beginning in January 2011.

In calendar year 2009, federal tax withholding tables were temporarily modified by the Department of the Treasury to reflect changes resulting from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, specifically the “Making Work Pay” tax credit, which reduced the amount of federal income tax withheld from your pay.

Taxes reduced in 2009, 2010

The legislation provided a $400 individual income tax credit ($800 for joint filers) for calendar years 2009 and 2010 for many tax filers. The federal tax tables were adjusted during this time period to reduce the amount of income tax withheld from your pay. 

Making Work Pay tax credit has expired

The Making Work Pay tax credit expired on December 31, 2010 and the federal tax tables have once again been adjusted. As a result, you will see an increase in the amount of income tax that is withheld from your pay beginning in January 2011.

Will  you need to modify your current withholding?

You are encouraged to consult with your individual tax or financial advisor to see if this increased withholding will require a modification to your current federal tax withholding elections/amounts as reported on Form W-4 (Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate).
