  • If an employee does not complete this form, you must withhold tax as no exemptions are claimed.

How Connecticut Paycheck Tax Calculator Works? 

Employers withhold federal taxes on wages paid to employees in Connecticut. The IRS applies these taxes to pay for your annual income taxes. Some of these taxes are also used for FICA, which funds Medicare and Social Security. 

Your marital status significantly affects how much you pay in taxes. The amount withheld from your paycheck depends, in part, on whether you are single, head of household, married filing jointly, or married filing separately. Keep in mind that Connecticut recognizes same-sex marriages for income tax purposes. So, it would help to consider this when filling out your W-4 form.
