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."

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?
Tax Professional: Mark D, Enrolled Agent replied 2 years ago

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

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?
Tax Professional: Mark D, Enrolled Agent replied 2 years ago

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