Georgia Income Tax Withholding Requirements

Employers in Georgia must conform with these state rules relating to income tax withholding and administration.

General Withholding Requirement: Georgia income tax must be withheld from wages paid to resident employees for services performed either within or without the state. However, if a resident employee performs services in another state, withholding isn't required if the employer must withhold and pay over income tax to that state. Nonresident employees are subject to withholding only on wages paid for services performed in the state.

Employee Withholding Exemption Forms: Georgia Form G-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.
