Example 4-3

To compute the tax using the 2023 Percentage Method for Manual Payroll Systems With Forms W-4 From 2020 or Later using Standard Withholding Rate Schedules, follow the steps illustrated below.

Step 1

Determine the amount of gross wages earned, filing status, adjustments on Form W-4, and frequency of pay. Note: If the wage ends in a fractional dollar amount, the wage may be rounded to the nearest dollar. However, in this text, exact wages are used.

Wilson Goodman, single (S), has no adjustments on his Form W-4 and earns $915.60 semimonthly.

Step 2
Determine the withholding tax by referring to the appropriate Percentage Method Withholding Table (see Figure 4.6 below).

Compute tax from Tax Table A, Semimonthly, Standard Withholding Rate Schedule, page T-3.

($915.60 – $577.00 = $338.60 × 10% = $33.86 + $0) = $33.86

Use the 

percentage method

 to compute the federal income taxes to withhold from the wages or salaries of each employee. 
If an amount is zero, enter “0”. If required, round your calculations and final answers to the nearest cent.

As we go to press, the federal income tax rates for 2024 are being determined by budget talks in Washington, and are not available for publication. For this edition, the 2023 federal income tax tables for Manual Systems with Forms W-4 From 2020 or Later with Standard Withholding and 2023 FICA rates have been used.
