The Internal Revenue Service released a redesigned Form W-4 for tax year 2020. The redesigned Form W-4 employs a building block approach to replace complex worksheets with more straightforward questions that make it simpler for you to figure a more accurate withholding. The new form uses a more personalized, step-by-step approach.
Employees who have submitted a Form W-4 in any year before 2020 are not required to submit a new form merely because of the redesign. Employers will continue to compute withholding based on the information from the employee’s most recently submitted Form W-4.
