The Employee Withholding Certificate, commonly known as the Form W-4, is an IRS form used by an employer to withhold the correct federal income tax from an employee’s pay.
The 2020 version of the W-4 differed significantly from the prior versions of the form. The major difference is the focus on the employee’s expected tax situation for the year and the withholding allowances or exemptions are no longer a factor after 2019. However, where employees have not submitted the new form to their employers, the older versions of the form remain in effect. Employers may have to deal with two different withholding computation procedures.
IRS Publication 15-T, Federal Income Tax Withholding Methods provides tax tables and worksheets to accommodate tax computations for both prior to 2020 W-4 Forms and 2020 and later W-4 Forms
In this practical webinar, you will learn about how employees should complete the 2021 W-4 Forms. You will also learn how to use the Publication 15-T tables and the IRS Income Tax Withholding Assistant for Employers to compute withholding using either the 2020 or 2021 Form W-4 information or the information from prior year W-4 Forms that are still in effect.
Why should you attend?
The current Form W-4 does not use the withholding allowances, so the method for computing withholding has changed. Since existing employees who do not want to change their withholding amount may leave prior Forms W-4 – Withholding Allowance Certificate in effect indefinitely, payroll professionals will have to know how to use both withholding calculation methods.
