Changes in 2020

Percentage Method and Wage Bracket Method Withholding tables, as well as the amount to add to Nonresident Alien Employee's Wages for figuring Income Tax Withholding, are no longer included in Pub. 15. These tables and Employer Instructions on how to figure Employee Withholding are now included in the Pub. 15-T, Federal Income Tax Withholding Methods. You May also use Income Tax Withholding Assistant for Employers at IRS. Gov / ITWA to help you figure Federal Income Tax Withholding. Redesign Form W-4 for 2020. The IRS has redesigned Form W-4 for 2020. In the past, value of Withholding Allowance was tied to the amount of personal Exemption. Due to changes in law, taxpayers can no longer claim personal Exemptions or dependency Exemptions; therefore, 2020 Form W-4 no longer asks Employees to Report the number of Withholding allowances that they are claiming. Revise Form W-4 is divided into five steps. Step 1 and Step 5 apply to all employees. In Step 1, employees enter personal information like their Name and Filing Status. In Step 5, employees sign a form. Employees who complete Only Step 1 and Step 5 will have their Withholding figure based on their Filing Status's standard deduction and Tax rates with no Other Adjustments. If applicable, in Step 2, employees increase their Withholding to account for higher Tax rates due to Income From Other jobs in their household. Under Step 2, employees either enter an additional amount to withhold per payroll period in Step 4 or check a box in Step 2 for higher Withholding Rate tables to apply to their wages. In Step 3, employees decrease their Withholding by reporting the annual amount of any credits they will claim on their Income Tax Return. In Step 4, employees may increase or decrease their Withholding based on the Annual amount of Other Income or deductions they will Report on their Income Tax Return and they may also request any Additional Federal Income Tax they want Withheld each pay period. Employees who have submitted Form W-4 in any year before 2020 aren't required to submit a new form merely because of redesign. Employers will continue to figure Withholding based on Information From Employee's most recently submitted Form W-4. Withholding tables in a Pub. 15-T allow Employers to figure withholding base on Form W-4 for earlier year as well as redesigned 2020 Form W-4. While you may ask your employees first pay wages before 2020 to submit new Forms W-4 using redesigned version of the Form, you should explain to them that theyre not required to DO this and if they don't submit new Form W-4, Withholding will continue based on valid Form W-4 previously submit. All newly hired employees first paid wages after 2019 must use redesigned Form. Similarly, any other employees who wish to adjust their Withholding must use the redesigned Form.

On Dec. 5, IRS released the long-await final version of 2020 Form W-4, retitled Employee's Withholding Certificate, with major revisions designed to make accurate Income-Tax Withholding easier for employees starting in 2020. The IRS also posts FAQs about changes incorporated in the revised Form. These are key points employers should note, IRS said when the final version of 2020 Form W-4 was release: all new employees hired as of Jan. 1, 2020, must complete the New Form. Current employees are not required to complete the New Form but can choose to adjust their withholding base on the New Form. Any adjustments made after Jan. 1, 2020, must be made using New Form. Employers can still compute Withholding based on information from employees' most recently submitted Form W-4 if employees choose not to adjust their Withholding using the revised Form. New Publication 15-T, Federal Income Tax Withholding Methods, for use with New 2020 Form W-4, includes steps employers can take to determine Federal Withholding. The IRS updated the W-4 Form to reflect tax code changes ushered in by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which took effect in 2018. Unlike 2019 Form W-4, revised Form excludes withholding allowances, which were tied to personal exemption amount 4 050 for 2017and are now suspend. It also replaces complicated worksheets with more straightforward questions. Primary goals of the new design are to provide simplicity, accuracy and privacy for employees while minimizing burden for employers and payroll processors, IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig say. Changes made since last Draft include minor edits and added language on page 2 under your Privacy. Employers can ask employees hired before 2020 to use New Form, but are not required to do so, said Jon Barber, senior vice president of Tax policy and research at Ayco, financial counseling and investment management firm. Employers should, however, explain that Withholding will continue based on the Form they previously submitted and may not be as accurate as using New W-4. Alice Jacobsohn, senior manager of government relations for American Payroll Association, Payroll industry trade group, notes that: if newly hired employees in 2020 do not complete 2020 Form W-4, employer instructions state that employers should treat them as single filer with no other adjustments. If the employee only completes Step 1 and 5, employer is instructed to withhold based on identified Withholding status with no other adjustments.
