If the employee claims any dependent exemptions, multiply each by $1,000 and add this to the annual exemption amount computed above.
Note: The personal exemption code is based on the marital status in the first position of the exemption code recorded on the Information/Research Inquiry System (IRIS), Program IR105, State Tax, and the dependent exemptions are the last two positions of the exemption code on IRIS Program 105. For example, if the employee has an exemption code of M02, they would receive an annual exemption amount of $11,000 which is $9,000 for Married and $2,000 for the 2 dependent exemptions.
