Understanding the 2020 W4

May 22, 2030 | Webinar Tag

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 fundamentally changed personal income taxes. Gone are the days of allowances for spouses/dependents, the personal exemption has been reduced and the child tax credit increased. This prompted the IRS to redesign the federal W4. This is the first significant redesign of the form in 30 years.

In this Webinar, we will explore the evolution of the Federal W4. We will discuss what has been removed from the legacy form and review about what employers and employees should understand about the 2020 version.

Attendees will improve their understanding of the new form and learn how to better socialize the forms changes with their employees so that they can make the correct tax elections.
