Acceptable Exemption Form:

W-4 or W-4ME

Basis For Withholding:

Acceptable Exemption Data:

Special Coding:

Determine the Total Number Of Allowances Claimed field as follows:
First Position - S = Single; M = Married;

Withholding Formula (Maine Effective 2016)
  1. Subtract the nontaxable biweekly Thrift Savings Plan contribution from the gross biweekly wages.

  2. Subtract the nontaxable biweekly Federal Health Benefits Plan payment(s) (includes dental and vision insurance program, and flexible spending account - health care and dependent care deductions) from the amount computed in step 1.

  3. Add the taxable biweekly fringe benefits (taxable life insurance, etc.) to the amount computed in step 2 to obtain the adjusted gross biweekly wages.

  4. Multiply the adjusted gross biweekly wages by 26 to obtain the annual wages.

  5. Determine the exemption allowance by applying the following guideline and subtract this amount from the result of step 4 to determine the taxable income.

    Exemption Allowance = $4,050 x Number of Exemptions

  6. A phase out of the taxpayer's Maine standard deduction starts when annualized income reaches $70,000 for single taxpayers and $140,000 for married taxpayers filing joint returns. To factor in the phase out, complete the following and add the result to the amounts calculated above:
    Single Taxpayers
    [(Amount from step 5 - $67,150) / $75,000] * $11,600
    Married Taxpayers
    [(Amount from step 5 - $137,150) / $150,000] * $23,200

  7. Apply the taxable income computed in step 6 to the following table to determine the annual Maine income tax withholding.
