For 2019 the NYS suplemental withholding rate was 9.62%. However the maximum tax bracket in NYS is 8.82% for 2019. This means that even for the highest earners the withholding will be too much and they will be due a refund at tax filing.

Is there any reason for this? Other than NYS wanting to take advantage of an interest free loan from its citizens?
