New Employee Information
As you are probably aware, when you hire employees you enter another realm of tax reporting and record keeping. Nowhere are accurate records more important than when it comes to your employee payroll records; not only for the benefit of your employees but also for your own benefit.
FORM W-4 EMPLOYEE’S WITHHOLDING CERTIFICATE
You must give all new employees this form. Each employee must fill out the form and return it to you. The W-4 shows their filing status and how many withholding allowances they claim. You keep the original W-4 and send a copy to your payroll provider and/or CPA.
