Tax Withholding Forms by State

State and IRS Tax Withholding planning is important in order to balance your tax return goals and results. A tax refund - which is taxpayer money - is generally the result of too much tax withholding. A high tax return refund is often a form of self-imposed financial penalty.

Start and taxercise your paycheck now with the eFile.com Taxometer. Learn more about the importance of W-4 form calculation and management.

eFile.com has created four free W-4 tools that allow each taxpayer to calculate or adjust and create W-4 form(s) based on individual tax return goals:

  • W-4 Basic: This is the simplest online W-4 tool; use this for any filing status (Single, Head of Household, Married) with 1 simultaneous job (you and/or your spouse each have one job at the given time). The total number of jobs for the year is not relevant. This tool does not lean on your previous tax return or future income estimates.
  • W-4 Check: Calculate or estimate your W-4 IRS tax withholding based on your paycheck. This can then be used as guidance for your state tax withholding.
  • W-4 Adjust: The W-4 Adjust lets you adjust or plan your current W-4 based on your last year's tax return results. You manage next year's tax refund or taxes owed now and create your W-4. This tool incorporates sound financial tax planning goals.
  • W-4 Pro: The W-4 Pro tool looks at your future income, deductions, etc. and estimated tax return results. If your income and other tax figures are similar to the previous year, use the W-4 Adjust tool. The Pro tool creates a tax return for you and will then create a W-4 based on your tax return goals. For example, for Tax Year 2022, you would use the 2022 Tax Return Estimator to optimize your W-4. Keep in mind that you can also use the 1040-ES to pay estimated taxes throughout the year if you have additional, non-wage or W-2 income, such as self-employment income. You can also pay the IRS directly online through quarterly tax payments instead of mailing the form.

Tax Withholding Forms by State

To adjust your state tax withholding, you will need to submit a certain state form to your employer - not the IRS or state tax agency. Below, find the state for which your employer is located and fill out the form in the online editor. This form is to be completed by the employee who then submits it to their employer. This will adjust your state withholding so you can increase or decrease how much money you give to the state with each paycheck.
