Vermont Income Tax Withholding
Vermont requires employers to withhold state income tax from their employees' wages and remit the amounts withheld to the Vermont Department of Taxes.
Employers located in Vermont or out-of-state employers with employees working in the state are required to withhold Vermont income tax from Vermont residents or from residents of other states working in Vermont. As a convenience to their employees residing in Vermont, out-of-state employers with no activities in the state may withhold Vermont income tax from the wages earned out-of-state by these employees.
