IT-2104 Form | New York State Income Tax Withholding

Posted by Complete Payroll | Jan 23, 2017 8:00:00 AM

IT-2104 Form | New York State income tax withholding

The IT-2104 Form is the form to set up employee income tax withholding for New York State.

Every employee must pay federal and state taxes, unless you’re in a state that doesn’t have state income tax - but New York is definitely not one of those states. The W-4 takes care of withholding for federal income tax, and the IT-2104 Form takes care of New York State income tax withholding.

New Call-to-action

All in all, the IT-2104 Form is pretty straightforward. Just give it to your new employee to complete, just like you would the W-4 Form. Once they’re done, there’s a section on the first page for the employer to complete.

If the employee claimed more than 14 allowances, you’ll have to put a checkmark in Box A before sending it into the New York State Tax Department. The address is on the form, but we’ve also provided it below. In most cases, you’ll just be putting a checkmark in Box B, and again sending it into the New York State Tax Department.
