Hawaii Income Tax Withholding Requirements
Employers in Hawaii must conform with these state rules relating to income tax withholding and administration.
General Withholding Requirement: Hawaii income tax generally must be withheld from all wages paid to resident and nonresident employees for services performed either within or without the state. However, when nonresident employees file statements verifying their nonresidency, withholding isn't required from wages for services performed outside the state.
Employee Withholding Exemption Forms: Hawaii Form HW-4 must be completed by each employee, to determine the appropriate level of state income tax to withhold from earnings. Of course, Federal Form W-4 also must be completed by each employee, to determine the appropriate level of federal income tax to withhold from earnings.
Reciprocal Agreements: None.
