On February 28, 2018, the IRS issued the 2018 Form W-4, which includes the updated tax table information. Although employees are not required to complete a new Form W-4 each year, it is considered a best practice. This year is particularly significant given the updated tax tables issued as a result of the December 2017 tax overhaul. Even if employees completed a Form W-4 in 2018 using the 2017 form, employers should consider making the 2018 form available in the event employees need to make changes consistent with the new tax legislation.

Action Items

  1. Provide the new form (or Spanish version) to current employees to update their withholding exemptions for 2018 in light of the recent tax legislation.
  2. Include the 2018 Form W-4 in new hire onboarding documents.
