CHARLESTON, WV – Gov. Jim Justice announced today that the West Virginia State Tax Department has officially released new personal income tax withholding tables for the 2023 tax year. West Virginia employers should begin using the revised tables immediately. 

“Starting on their next paycheck, all West Virginians will begin seeing real dollars in their pocket from the largest tax cut in our state’s history,” Gov.

The reduced withholdings and estimated tax payments are projected to return $595 million dollars to West Virginians in calendar year 2023.

All documents will be posted to the Tax Department’s website, including:

2) Employee’s Withholding/Exemption Certificate – IT 104
3) Percentage Method of Withholding – IT-100.2.A
