On February 28th, 2018 the IRS released the 2018 Form W-4. As per our promise to ensure HRdirect Smart Apps customers are always in compliance with ever-evolving state and federal requirements, we have updated the I-9 & W-4 Smart App to include the 2018 Form W-4.
Form W-4 is the Employee’s Withholding Certificate. Employees must complete Form W-4 so that their employers can withhold the correct federal income tax from their pay.
Updates to the 2018 Form W-4 include:
- An increase in form length from 2 pages to 4 pages
- Additional instructions
- The addition of the recently updated 2018 withholding tables
Your Next Steps
As an employer using the I-9 & W-4 app, no further action is required. When you use the app to onboard new hires, your employees will be automatically provided with the 2018 Form W-4, the updated instructions and in-app guidance from our in-house legal experts.
Existing employees aren’t required to update their W-4s, but may choose to do so after checking their withholding with the IRS.
