(1) The Department of Revenue shall prepare a table for use with the percentage method that provides for the deduction and withholding of a tax equal to a specific percent (to be determined by the department) of the amount by which the wages for a given payroll period (daily, weekly, biweekly, semimonthly, monthly, quarterly, semiannually or annually, as the case may be) exceed the number of withholding exemptions claimed, multiplied by the amount of one such exemption for each payroll period (such amount being determined by the department for each such period). The determinations of the department shall result, so far as is practicable, in withholding from the employee a sum substantially equivalent to the amount of the tax that the employee will be required to pay under this chapter upon such wages. To accomplish this purpose, the department may make special provision for employees who are in the state for limited periods of time.
(2) The department shall prepare tables for use in computing withholding of tax by wage brackets. The wage brackets shall be graduated so that the amount withheld is, as far as practicable, substantially equivalent to the amount of the tax that the employee will be required to pay under this chapter upon such wages.
