§ 31.3401(e)-1 Number of withholding exemptions claimed.
(a) The term number of withholding exemptions claimed means the number of withholding exemptions claimed in a withholding exemption certificate in effect under section 3402(f) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 or in effect under section 1622(h) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1939. If no such certificate is in effect, the number of withholding exemptions claimed shall be considered to be zero. The number of withholding exemptions claimed must be taken into account in determining the amount of tax to be deducted and withheld under section 3402, whether the employer computes the tax in accordance with the provisions of subsection (a) or subsection (c) of section 3402.
(b) The employer is not required to ascertain whether or not the number of withholding exemptions claimed is greater than the number of withholding exemptions to which the employee is entitled. For rules relating to invalid withholding exemption certificates, see § 31.3402(f)(2)-1(e), and for rules relating to required submission of copies of certain withholding exemption certificates to the Internal Revenue Service, see § 31.3402(f)(2)-1(g).
(c) As to the number of withholding exemptions to which an employee is entitled, see § 31.3402(f)(1)-1.
