Notice of Tax Withholding Options
When registering for paid family leave benefits, you have the ability to decide if you would like estimated federal and/or District of Columbia income taxes withheld from your benefit amount. If you choose to withhold the federal tax, 10.00% of your weekly benefit amount will be deducted. If you are a District of Columbia resident and choose to withhold the District tax, 4.00% of your weekly benefit amount will be deducted. The amounts you choose to withhold will be transferred to the appropriate taxing authority on your behalf.
Please note, the option to withhold state income tax is available only to District residents. If you are not a District resident, please contact the appropriate tax agency of your state residence for information about requirements and options for paying estimated taxes.
