New 2020 IRS W-4 Forms
The IRS W-4 Form underwent significant changes for 2020. These changes have been updated in Workday, and include the ability to file as Head of household and as a Qualifying widow(er). Additionally, allowances have been eliminated from the form. Employees who have submitted a W-4 Form previously do not need to complete the new form, unless they would like to make changes to their elections. This can be done in Workday from the Pay application, under Withholding Elections. The IRS recommends using their Tax Withholding Estimator when filling out the W-4 Form, in order to elect the most accurate withholding.
