Do you need to complete a new W-4 for 2012?

February 15, 2012 at 4:44 pm

IRS regulations require a new W-4 for any employee claiming tax exemption from federal taxes each year. If you filed a tax exempt W-4 for 2011 and are not required to pay federal taxes in 2012, you must submit a new W-4 for 2012 by Feb. 20, 2012. Please complete a new W-4 and return it to the Payroll Office by Feb. 20, 2012 to ensure your tax exempt status continues and taxes are not withheld on the Feb. 29, 2012 payroll.

This memorandum is issued as notification of this requirement and in accordance with Internal Revenue Service Regulations. This requirement does not apply to any Foreign National employee. They do not need to file a new W-4.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact (803) 777-3551.
