This tax alert is to advise employers that the Ohio Department of Taxation has issued new employer withholding tables to be used for payrolls that end on or after September 1, 2021. The new tables take into consideration the income tax rate reductions that went into effect when House Bill 110 (134th General Assembly) was signed into law on July 1, 2021. The tables reflect a 3.0% reduction in the withholding rates previously in effect since January 1, 2020. The new tables are to be used on or after September 1, 2021 and in future years.
The new withholding tables are posted on the Employer Withholding Tax Web page, which can be accessed by clicking here: https://bit.ly/3A9vGsm The tables include the percentage and optional computer method for calculating withholding as well as daily, weekly, biweekly, semi-monthly, and monthly tables.
