Kentucky issues new withholding tables

In response to recent legislation (see Payroll Management Guide Report Letter 1517/2553, dated April 24, 2018), Kentucky has issued new wage-bracket and formula withholding tables. Kentucky enacted a new 5% flat tax rate. Due to this change, a flat rate withholding formula has been developed. In the new formula, exemptions are not taken into account, only the standard deduction. The standard deduction is $2,530.
