Is withholding required on sick pay?

Answer #916 -- ( Published 08/05/2005 11:09 AM | Updated 07/12/2017 10:39 AM )

Is withholding required on sick pay?

If sick pay is paid by the employer or an agent of the employer, withholding Illinois income tax is mandatory. If the sick pay is paid by a third party who is not an agent of the employer, withholding Illinois income tax is voluntary. For more information, see IRS Publication 15-A, Employer’s Supplemental Tax Guide.
