If your job has anything to do with payroll, pay attention: Thanks to the tax reform law, your job will be harder than ever this fall. That's because the IRS is radically changing the W-4 form and the withholding methods for 2020 to something entirely new... no pay period withholding and no withholding allowances. At all.
What's in their place? A complicated worksheet that every employer must use to figure the withholding for every employee. Every pay period.
Don't get caught unprepared and out of compliance.
Discover the new compliance rules for withholding employees' taxes, child support, retirement contributions and more.
Because the new W-4 will present employees with a bewildering array of choices, you'll also need a good communication plan to explain those options – do nothing, increase or decrease their annual income subject to withholding; increase or decrease their pay period withholding – and to use the withholding worksheets or the IRS' withholding calculator.
And these huge changes are coming at a time when the IRS Criminal Division has increased payroll investigations by a whopping 34% last year. You can't afford to make a mistake – even an innocent one.
If your withholding process was on "autopilot" before, you must take back control this fall. And even if you farm out payroll to a third party, the IRS will always hold you responsible for any mistakes – so it's your job to guarantee compliance.
Spend 75 minutes now to do a thorough check-up of your withholding compliance. You could save yourself thousands of dollars in taxes and penalties – and a career black eye.
