What are W-4 forms?

A W-4 form is a tax form used to show the deductions and taxes that will be withheld from each paycheck while employed with a particular company. The W-4 forms are an important part of the employee/employer relationship and when it comes to taxes, the W-4 form is important in determining the deductions an employer will withhold from the employee’s pay. The W-4 is also the form that the IRS uses to determine what the employee needs to pay the government. Getting legal answers from an Expert about questions you may have on W-4 withholding, W-4 deductions, and W-4 questions is both fast and affordable.
