Nonresident Claim For Release From Withholding


Iowa withholding must be withheld from Iowa nonwage income paid to a nonresident. However, a nonresident may choose to make an Iowa estimated payment instead of having Iowa tax withheld from the nonwage income. To make an Iowa estimated payment, the nonresident must file this form and an IA 1040ES voucher with payment equal to 5% of line 3 below. This form must be filed prior to receiving Iowa nonwage income. Upon receipt of this form and payment, the Department will issue a release letter to the payer(s) of the Iowa nonwage income. The IA 1040ES voucher and instructions are available on our website at

Mail this form, the IA 1040ES voucher, and payment to:

Tax-exempt? If a nonresident qualifies to be tax-exempt then the payer is released from withholding. A nonresident is tax-exempt if Line 3 below is $1,000 or less and not subject to Iowa lump-sum tax or Iowa alternative minimum tax. No release letter will be issued if the qualified nonresident is tax- exempt. Source income less than $1,000 is released from withholding and no letter is sent.
