Topic Background:

The importance of 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 the 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. It can even lead to costly expenditures of time and budget resources to correct non-compliance consequences.
