Learn to Identify and Correct Problems & Errors in Completing and Processing the Form W-4.

The Form W-4 is fundamentally important to the payroll department, as the information provided on the form is essential for payroll functions. Form W-4 is a required form by the IRS, and is used for calculating taxation on the employee's paycheck. Failure to handle the form correctly and completely can lead to serious problems with withholding from an employee's gross wages. Non-compliance can lead to serious ramifications beyond the regulations and affect payroll as well as customer service and employee morale. It may also lead to costly expenditures of time and budget resources to correct non-compliance consequences.

The payroll department deals with various concerns when processing the W-4 form. Payroll must ensure the form is valid and have procedures in place to correct the problem if the form is not valid. The department needs to be aware if an employee can request for a flat dollar amount on the form and whether the form can designate a percentage of wages for taxes. They must know how to handle these issues in order to process the form completely and correctly. It is important for them to process the federal form correctly and be cognizant of states that have their own equivalent form for state tax withholding.

In this session with expert speaker Vicki Lambert, CPP you will understand the function and requirements of the Form W-4 and its relationship to the payroll process. You will be able to identify and correct problems and errors in completing and processing the Form W-4, and will operate your payroll department more efficiently and effectively.

This session is an excellent resource for those new to the payroll profession and a great refresher program for the seasoned payroll professional.
