About The Event
The IRS has released the final version of the 2020 Form W-4 – Employee’s Withholding Certificate. The new form must be used for all employees who receive their first paycheck after December 31, 2019, and any existing employee’s who change their withholding amount after December 31, 2019.
The new form does not use 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.
This webinar will cover the changes to the 2020 W-4, who must provide the employer with the 2020 Form, the method used to compute withholding, the new IRS Publication 15-T – Federal Income Tax Withholding Methods and other information payroll professionals need to know how to stay in compliance in 2020.
