Under Federal Law you are required to deduct federal income tax withholding according to the information reported on the W-4 they complete upon hiring. They can claim as many exemptions as they want to lessen the amount you are required to deduct.


Under VA state income tax law if you are required to withhold taxes for the position the employee holds, then you must do so.
