Withholding Formula (Wisconsin Effective 2022)
  1. Subtract the biweekly Thrift Savings Plan contribution from the gross biweekly wages.

  2. Multiply the adjusted gross biweekly wages times 26 to obtain the annual wages.

  3. Decrease the annual gross earnings by the deduction amount determined from the formula below.
    For single persons:
    If annual gross earnings are less than $17,780, deduction amount = $6,702.
    If annual gross earnings are $73,630 or more, deduction amount = $0.
    If annual gross earnings are at least $17,780 but less than $73,630, deduction amount is obtained by subtracting from $6,702, 12% of annual gross earnings in excess of $17,780, i.e. deduction amount = $6,702 0.12 * (Annual gross earnings $17,780).

    For married persons:
    If annual gross earnings are less than $25,727, deduction amount = $9,461.
    If annual gross earnings are $73,032 or more, deduction amount = $0.
    If annual gross earnings are at least $25,727 but less than $73,032, deduction amount is obtained by subtracting from $9,461, 20% of annual gross earnings in excess of $25,727, i.e. deduction amount = $9,461 0.20 * (Annual gross earnings $25,727).
  4. Apply the taxable income determined in step 2 to the following table to determine the Wisconsin tax withholding.
