Course Description

  • Wondering How the New W4 Affects Your Payroll?
  • Struggling to Understand the Changes in the New W4?
  • Want to Ensure Proper Tax Withholding with the New W4?

This new design has caused much confusion for employers and employees alike.

Although it is not the employer’s responsibility to complete the form for employees (there are default entries for incomplete or missing W4s), many payroll and HR departments are inundated with questions from workers.

Further, the payroll systems need to incorporate all the new information given to them by workers.

Employers must also ensure employees can access tables and other information to complete the W4.

Understanding the New W4 form is crucial for long-term planning. By attending the training, participants can proactively adapt their payroll processes and systems to ensure compliance not only now but also in the future as any further updates or revisions arise.
