Do you want a bigger paycheck now by balancing your tax withholding?

Let's See... Did you get a tax refund with your last year's tax return?

Are you sure? So, no tax refund, no tax payments for you, last year?

Which means you gave the IRS and State too much of your money in the form of tax withholding each pay period. Are you cool with giving your money to the government, interest free, only to get it back later as a refund?

It means you did not withhold enough tax from your paycheck each pay period. Do you still want to owe taxes next year?

The Original W-4 Form

Where Do I Submit a W-4? Print and sign the W-4 form. Hand it to your current employer.

How Often Can I Submit a W-4? There is no limit. We suggest submitting your W-4 between pay periods or paychecks.

How Many Allowances Should I Claim on My W-4? This is up to you and depends on whether you want a tax refund, owe taxes, or be tax balanced.
