Income tax withholding schedules provide graduated tax rates to be withheld by employers each pay period, giving considerations to a wage earner's marital status and the number of withholding allowances claimed. These withholding rates are designed to cover the approximate tax that will be due for taxpayers with standard deductions. The withholding tax is remitted monthly by companies withholding more than $500 per quarter. Companies withholding less than $500 remit on a quarterly basis. All companies remitting withholding tax of $10,000 or more per month are required to file and remit according to the Federal semi-weekly schedule.
All companies remitting an average of $5,000 or more per month in taxes in the previous fiscal year shall file returns online through Oklahoma Taxpayer Access Point (OkTAP).
