WhiiB&FcJeon Volume XXXIII Number 22 Ketlavik. Iceland June 3, 1977 SITW to begin July 1; LES changes, adjustments outlined Editor's Note: The Disbursing Office recommends that members should not ad- just monthly state income tax withholding (SITW) until receiving the first Leave and Earnings Statement (LES) reflecting the actual amount of tax withheld. , Retroactive adjustments for calendar year 1977 may be made provided the ad- justment reaches the Navy Finance Cen- ter, Cleveland, OH before November 15. State income tax withholding (SITW) for Navy members only provides addition- al state tax regulations as well as a revised list of states for which SITW will begin July 1. While describing the basis on which SITW will be calculated, further field procedures are included to aid members in adjusting the amount withheld. The Secretary o'f the Navy issued a message in April (ALNAV 032/77) which provided background information on SITW and listed those states which have requested withholding or information concerning withholding from the Trea- sury Department. The states for which it was antici- pated SITW would start July 1 were as- signed withholding tables and proced- ures for implementing SITW. Since this particular reference was released, Treasury regulations to im- plement SITW have been published. While these regulations do not alter the system for SITW described, they have revised the criteria and proced- ures, qualifying any given state for withholding. These revised procedures will delay implementing SITW for some states listed in paragraph 7a of the reference and, at the same time, will require withholding for certain other states not listed, beginning July 1. SITW will begin for the following 13 states July 1: Alabama, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Utah and Virginia. Withholding tables for Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania are listed in para- graph 7. Minor revisions to the tables prescribed by the reference for Alabama, North Carolina and South Carolina are in paragraph 8. Tables for Kansas, New Mexico, Utah and Virginia are in paragraph 7a of the referencev Withholding for Colorado, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, In- diana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massa- chusetts and Wisconsin will be post- poned indefinitely. However, changes to withholding amounts previously submitted to Navy Finance Center, Cleveland, OH for legal residents of these seven states and the district will be retained on file and used as the basis for withholding when with- holding begins for these states. Paragraph 4 of the reference gives information on how state taxes will be computed and reflected on the Leave and Earnings Statement (LES), and provides procedures for members to change the amount to be withheld. Paragraph 5 of the reference has disbursing procedures and detailed Navy Comptroller Form 3060 entries. The Tax Reform Act of 1976 imposes the requirement for mandatory withhold- ing of state income tax from the pay of military personnel. Individual state tax withholding tables are generally designed to approx- imate anticipated tax liability for per- sons who claim standard deductions (i.e. those who do not itemize deductions). While adjustments to the amount of tax withheld may be made by individual service members, these adjustments may only be made in cases where the indivi- dual's state tax liability is expected to differ from the withholding pre- scribed by the state tax withholding table. Any adjustments made by individual service members must be based on the member's expected tax liability. Indiscriminate or arbitrary adjust- ment of taxes withheld to amounts less than amounts prescribed by state tax tables is generally considered to be a violation of state law, and may invite prosecution by the member's state of legal residence. The legal residence contained in your master pay account will be used as the basis for deducting state tax. This legal residence is currently displayed in block 37 of the Leave and Earnings Statement (LES). The following remark will appear in block 62 of the LES received in June for members whose legal resi- dence is one of these 13 states: Alabama, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, New Jersey, New York, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania,..South Carolina, Utah and Virginia: State 13 STATES TO WITHHOLD YOUR TAXE$ income tax for (state) will begin July 1. For further information see you disbursing officer. A remark will appear in block 62 of the LES received in July for members whose legal residence is one of the 13 states listed above: $XXXX for state tax has been deducted from your pay forecast. These remarks will also appear on the LES's of members from other states before withholding for their state. For more information, contact the Disbursing Office at 4328/7433.
