Overview

Form W-4 has just seven lines but it is a fundamental part of the payroll process. In addition to information concerning the amount to withhold for income tax, the W-4 provides the employer with documentation of due diligence in soliciting employee name, Social Security Number, and address information. It is critical for penalty mitigation in the event the information is incorrect.

The Form provides a basis for the employee to have the correct amount of tax withheld, but if it is prepared incorrectly, the employee may be subject to penalties. While the employer is not responsible for assuring correctness of the employee's claims, the employer is responsible for due diligence with regard to invalid forms and withholding according to the employee instructions provided by the form.

Improper handling of the information can create problems in payroll compliance and employee morale as well as costly expenditures for error corrections and non compliance.

This webinar will discuss the function and requirements of Form W-4 and how the information it provides is critical to the payroll process as well as how to avoid problems and identify and correct problems such as invalid or improperly filled out forms and errors in processing. It will also discuss the proper handling of special situations and requirements such as exemption from withholding and nonresident alien W-4 Forms. 

Why should you attend this webinar?

While Form W-4 has only seven information lines, the information contained on the Form is critical to the payroll process. Failures at the employer end can lead to compliance and employee morale issues with regard to amounts withheld, timely processing, and incorrect information returns. Employers may be held liable or penalized for incorrect withholding where the employer failed to solicit or timely process the forms or fails to withhold according the information provided on the forms.
