Create Your W-4 Form(s)

Create your paycheck based W-4

Below you can create the W4, sign, download or email it to yourself or your employer. If you want to do tax withholding planning use either the Paycheck Calculator or the Tax Return estimator.

Completing the form itself only take a few steps, what is more difficult is to estimate the implication of the W-4 based tax withholding, in other words, will your tax return result in a tax refund or might you owe taxes?  Getting the numbers right ensures that you get your planned tax withholding amount on your next pay stub. If you're spot on, you're sure to see results you like on your next tax return.

Once you have completed your W-4, submit this to your employer. This only adjusts your federal withholding amounts; if you need to adjust your state tax withholding, select your state from the state W-4 page and find forms to do so. To see how optimized your withholding is, prepare and e-file your taxes on and see how tax balanced you are; your W-4 is the planning tool that allows you to keep your money during the year rather than hand it over to the IRS and state only to get it back as a refund.
