Best Practices in Handling the Form W-4 and Avoiding Serious Compliance Problems

The importance of the Form W-4 is fundamental to the payroll department. Most payroll functions from beginning to end rely on the information provided on the form. It is the foundation for the taxation of an employee’s paycheck as well as a required IRS form.

Failure to handle the form correctly and completely can open the door to serious problems not only in properly withholding from the employee’s gross wages but its ramifications could extend beyond the regulations and affect payroll customer service or employee morale.

Questions arise in processing the forms almost daily in a payroll department. Is it a valid form? If not, what should payroll do to correct the problem? Can the employee request a flat dollar amount on the form? Can the form designate a percentage of wages for taxes? These are the types of questions that must be answered to process the form completely and correctly. And it isn’t just the federal form that payroll must process; many states have their own version of the form or use the federal form for state tax withholding.

This webinar by expert speaker Vicki M. Lambert, CPP, will provide you updates on the Form W-4 for 2017 and provide you with best practices to meet the compliance requirements. This an excellent training session for those new to the payroll profession and a great refresher program for the seasoned payroll professional.
