The purpose of this web page is to help you setup TKT Payroll for proper Louisiana tax withholding. An Annual Tax Credit amount must be calculated for each employee, and entered in the last field in the Employee Record. In addition, enter the number 1 in the Employee Record field titled "State Tax Allowances or Decimal Number if Percent of Taxable Gross ->" for proper calculation of the Annual Tax Credit by the software.

First the Annual Exemption Allowance amount must be determined by applying the following guidelines. The Annual Exemption Allowance amount is determined only for the calculation of the Annual Tax Credit amount.

Claiming Status As
Zero
Single
Married
Each additional dependent exemption

Annual Exemption Allowance

$4500
$9000
$1000 each

Example:
The Annual Exemption Allowance for a married employee claiming himself, his spouse, and two children would be calculated a follows:

Married
2 dependents @ $1000 ea.
Total Annual Exemption Allow.

9000

Use the Annual Exemption Allowance amount above to determine the Annual Tax Credit amount as follows:

Using the criteria found for Louisiana on the website referenced on the TKT Payroll Louisiana tax table, the Annual Tax Credit for Married is 2.1% times any Annual Exemption Allowance amount up to $25000. Therefore, the Annual Tax Credit amount to be entered in the last field in the employee's record for the example above is $231.00 ( $11000 X .021 = $231).
