Act 2022-292 increased the standard deduction for married filing joint taxpayers by $1,000 and increased the standard deduction for single, head of family, and married filing separately taxpayers by $500. The act also changed the qualifying threshold for the $1,000 dependent exemption from gross income of $20,000 or less to gross income of $50,000 or less. The qualifying threshold for the $500 dependent exemption has changed from gross income of $20,000 or more to gross income of $50,000 or more. The withholding tables provided in the “Withholding Tax Tables and Instructions for Employers and Withholding Agents” have been updated to reflect these changes.
