State tax withholding rules vary by state. Some states have mandatory tax withholding, while others give their residents options. Your withdrawal form provides more information about applicable state withholding. If you are a resident of one of the states listed below, you must use the state’s own form in order to make any withholding elections. If you do not submit a properly completed state form, we will have to apply your state’s default withholding rules. If you have questions about your personal tax situation, please speak with a qualified tax professional or visit your state’s department of revenue website for information specific to your state. Or, if you’ve moved to a new state, please note that different tax rules and withholding requirements may apply for that state.
