Even though the December 2017 passing of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was one of the most significant tax changes in some time, the impending change to the W-4 will be the largest change to the form in US history! The W-4 is a critical form that all companies have to obtain from employees and that drives how federal income withholding tax is calculated.

This webinar will prepare the payroll professional to understand the changes to the W-4 for 2020 and to review the draft released on May 31, 2019. The IRS also released Publication 15-T on June 7, 2019 which gave instruction on how the new form will impact taxation. A review of publication 15-T and the steps to complete federal tax withholding calculations will be reviewed. All IRS-specific laws around the processing of the Form W-4 today and tomorrow will be discussed.


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • Understanding the proper way to process a federal W-4
  • What should be the proper process for an invalid W-4 today and how it will look in 2020?
  • Proper processing and maintenance of a IRS lock in letter
  • Electronic W-4 requirements and what the new form means for employers with electronic W-4 systems
  • Understanding the requirements around Form W-4 and how an employer can be at risk
  • IRS Form W-4 change requirements and how it affects you as an employer
  • Employer notification requirements and important deadlines for Form W-4 
  • Discussion on what makes the Form W-4 invalid
  • Review of the tax reform legislation and how it affected the Form W-4
