Webinar: W-4 Changes in 2020: What You Need to Know

With the enactment of the federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December 2017, several features of the federal income tax code were changed or eliminated. To match the federal withholding system more accurately, the IRS issued major revisions to the Employee Withholding Allowance Certificate (2020 Form W-4).

This session will examine how the 2020 Form W-4 is different and what you must do for new employees hired on or after January 1, 2020. We’ll review procedures for existing employees who have an old Form W-4 and analyze some of the tax withholding changes that will result. We’ll demonstrate a few common withholding scenarios, share best practices for complying with the new mandate and review employer FAQs surrounding the use of the new Form W-4.
