      RELATES TO: KRS 141.310, 141.370

      STATUTORY AUTHORITY: KRS 131.130(1),



131.130(1) authorizes the department to promulgate administrative regulations

necessary to administer and enforce Kentucky's tax laws. KRS 141.370 requires

the department to establish the individual income tax withholding tables. This

      Section 1. Withholding Tables. An

employer shall withhold Kentucky individual income tax from wages and salaries

in accordance with Kentucky Form 42A003(T), Withholding Kentucky Income Tax, as

incorporated by reference in 103 KAR 3:040. This material may also be obtained

on the Department of Revenue's Web site at http://revenue.ky.gov.


      Section 2. Supplemental Withholding. (1)

In addition to tax required to be withheld by the tables in Section 1 of this

administrative regulation, an employee may authorize his employer to withhold

additional Kentucky income tax.

      (2) An employee may authorize additional

withholding by filing with the employer an amended Form K-4, Kentucky Department

of Revenue Employee's Withholding Exemption Certificate (Revenue Form 42A804),

incorporated by reference in 103 KAR 3:040.

      (3) Withholding Exemption Certificate

(Revenue Form K-4) with his employer. The amended certificate may claim fewer

personal exemptions than are allowed, authorize the employer to withhold a

specific amount of additional tax, or both.


      Section 3. Mechanical Withholding. An

employer may use the Computer Formula (Optional Withholding Method) contained

in Kentucky Form 42A003(T), Withholding Kentucky Income Tax, as incorporated by

reference in 103 KAR 3:040 instead of the tables required by Section 1 of this

administrative regulation for the determination of the amount to withhold from

an employee's wage or salary. (IW-11; 1 Ky.R. 331; eff. 2-5-1975; Am. 2 Ky.R.
