2008 Form W-4 Released

Message Text:

 

The IRS has released the 2008 Form W-4, Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate. As noted in Informational Circular 08-P-019, IRS regulations continue to require employees claiming exempt status from federal tax withholding (for income earned in the United States) to file a new W-4 form annually. Employees are eligible for the exempt status if the following criteria are met: 1) the employee had no income tax liability in the previous years, and 2) the employee anticipates no income tax liability in the upcoming year.

Agency personnel are reminded that the KPAY320 will run on the night of December 21, 2007 and will insert (for employee’s claiming exemption in 2007 who have not filed a new W-4 for 2008) a 01/01/2008 effective-dated row in the employee’s Tax Data record indicating a marital status of ‘single’ with zero exemptions. Agencies should refer to Informational Circular 08-P-019 for additional information pertaining to Forms W-4 processing for exempt employees.

The 2008 Form W-4 is immediately available at the IRS website at www.irs.gov and will also be available in the near future at the Accounts and Reports website at http://da.ks.gov/ar/ .
