Change in State Tax Tables May Affect
The Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR) has revised
state tax withholding tables. For Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS)
annuitants who withhold Wisconsin state income tax based on the
tax tables, this change will be reflected on their April 1, 2014
If your monthly payment will change as a result of the new tax
table, the Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF) will send you
an annuity mailing statement reflecting the new withholding amount.
This change does not affect WRS annuitants who withhold Wisconsin
state income taxes at a fixed dollar amount.
The withholding table changes reflect the individual income tax
rate cuts effective in tax year 2013, an additional proposed rate
cut that would be effective in tax year 2014. The revised federal
tables can be found at www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p15.pdf.
The revised state tables can be found on DOR’s website at
