Withholding Formula (West Virginia Effective 2021)
  1. Subtract the 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 adjusted gross biweekly wages.

  3. Add taxable fringe benefits (taxable life insurance, etc.) to 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 compute the taxable income.

    Exemption Allowance = $2,000 x Number of Exemptions

  6. Apply the taxable income computed in step 5 to the following table to determine the West Virginia annual tax withholding.
