Perhaps overlooked, but a notable difference that will affect all NY taxpayers is the new supplemental wage withholding rates. As of July 1 this year, all supplemental wages are withheld at 13.78% — a significant leap from the previous 9.62%.
What’s more—depending on income or locality within the state, some taxpayers can expect higher taxes based on local rates. Along with the state’s new budget and updated tax rates, Yonkers also re-established its supplemental withholding rates at 2.3% for residents and 0.5% for nonresidents.
