COMPLIANCE CORNER

With the availability of the Avionté Paperless Mobile Onboarding and the ability to request the completion of E-Signature Documents powered by Adobe Sign, our focus this month for compliance is the U.S. W-4 form.

Who needs a W-4 form?

When you hire an employee in the U.S., you must have the employee complete Form W-4, so that you, as the employer, have the marital status, withholding allowances, and any additional amount to use when calculating federal income tax withholding for the employee.

What if the employee doesn’t properly complete the form?

If the employee does not properly complete the form, you must withhold income taxes as if the employee was single and claiming no allowances.

Can I provide my employees with a Spanish version of the form?

Yes, you can provide the Spanish version of the form, Form W-4(SP) instead of Form W-4 for Spanish-speaking employees.

My employee updated their W-4 form, when must the employer change the withholding?

If you receive an updated W-4 form, you must put that form into effect no later than the start of the first payroll ending on or after the 30th day from the date the revised form was received. The employer should honor the changes unless the form is invalid or a lock-in letter applies.
