Hello, a worker on a L1 visa is subject to all the same payroll and income taxes or a regular worker.

"he income in the U.S. is subject to FICA (Social Security and Medicare) taxes and income taxes, and the days in the U.S. count towards the Substantial Presence Test SPT."

My Payroll Company said that I need to put 99 allownce
Expert:  Mark D replied 1 year ago.

That affects income tax, not payroll taxes.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Mark, Thank you so much for this information. One more think to setup his Payroll taxes in our Payroll Systems, Should I need to put NRA, NRM, or nothing...Or yes Only single or Married?
Expert:  Mark D replied 1 year ago.

Nothing special, just an indication of what income tax withholding he wants (W4 and DE4)

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Mark, you are the best!!..I think this is my final question ...he filled out W4 and the I-9 forms and he add Married and 2. Does he needs to fill out DE4 form?
Expert:  Mark D replied 1 year ago.

Yes. If he doesn't, you would use the same info he put on his W4.
