The IRS has issued a new W4 form for 2019.  Changes to the tax code that were put into effect in early 2018 were expected to lead to major changes to the 2019 W4.  After initial feedback, however, the IRS has decided to delay those changes until 2020.  Although very similar to the 2018 W4, there were some changes made to the language in the 2019 W4.  This language helped clarify a couple of items, including:

  • Employees should take into account non-wage income that is not subject to withholding when using the worksheets.
  • The child tax credit may be claimed for only children who have a valid social security number.

Employers are encouraged to have their employees fill out a new W4 at the beginning of each year.  Changes in an employee’s personal life or financial situation may affect the amount of federal income tax they are required to pay, and potentially lead to an unexpected tax bill.  Contact Time & Pay today for more information on how we can help manage changes to your employees’ withholding status, and guarantee tax compliance!
