Abstract: The formation of spectral lines in a magnetized atmosphere is a complex issue both from the conceptual and computational point of view. The NLTE effects have been shown to play a significant role in many astrophysical situations both for unpolarized and polarized cases. We present a code for the NLTE radiative transfer calculations in a plane-parallel magnetized atmosphere for the so-called multiterm picture of atomic levels. We discuss the effects of NLTE radiative transfer on the polarization state of emergent radiation.
