How Do I Update My West Virginia Tax Tables?

Where do I find the tax tables?

For WV withholding tables you will need the current publication IT-100.1 Employer's Withholding Instructions and Tax Tables from the WV State Tax Department website.

Which tables do I use?

Use the annual table from the percentage method of withholding. Figure 1 shows an example.

Note that the figures shown in this document are for demonstration purposes only, and may not be current. Please consult the current publication for the most up-to-date information. Though the figures change periodically, the method of calculation should remain the same. If the calculation method has changed for this state please notify the webmaster.

How to setup/update the tables in PowerChurch Plus

To setup/update PowerChurch Plus with the state tax tables shown in Figure 1 above, select the Accounting menu, Payroll, Setup, then Maintain Tax Tables. A separate table will need to be created for the one earner/one job (single) and two earner/two or more jobs (married) table rates.

Click Add to enter a new table, or use the Find/Locate buttons to select an existing WV tax table to update. When adding a new table, you will be prompted for the type of tax table you're adding. Select State: West Virginia. For each table, enter the following information:

  • Description: Enter a unique name to identify the tax table (for example, "WV State Tax - Single").
  • Tax type: The type of tax in which this table applies. In this instance, select State Tax.
  • Withholding allowance: Enter the annual amount for one personal exemption. Again, found in publication IT-100.1 as shown in Figure 1 above.
  • Round tax to nearest whole dollar: Check this box to round the calculated tax amount to the nearest whole dollar.
  • Annual Rate Table: Click the Annual Rate Table tab. From Figure 1 above, enter the figures from the "But not over" column followed by the tax rate percentage for each bracket.

When you are done, the screen should look like this:

Figure 3a - WV State Single Tax Table (Deduction and Exemption Information)

Figure 3b - WV State Single Tax Table (Annual Rate Table)

Follow the instructions just described for the married withholding table.
