IRS Form W-4 Employer Guide

The 2020 IRS Form W-4, Employee’s Withholding Certificate, includes fundamental changes to income tax withholding that may significantly affect both employers and employees. These changes are largely in response to the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This IRS 2020 Form W-4 Employer Guide is intended to help you understand the changes. You should review and understand the changes to the forms and instructions for complying with new 2020 withholding calculations and procedures, and to be able to explain the changes to employees. The most significant change is that there are no withholding allowances. Allowances have been the basis for income withholding for many years, so employees may ask about how to adjust their withholding using the new form. Please take a minute to download our 2020 W-4 Employer Guide to help you answer questions about the revised Form W-4.
