What’s the difference between Forms W-4 and W-2?
Employees submit a W4 to their employer to define how they want their Federal Income Tax (FIT) withheld. An employee fills this out upon hiring and then anytime they want to make changes.
Employers submit a W2 each year (due Jan 31) for each employee to document how much they were paid and how much Federal Income Tax was withheld the previous year. W2’s are sent to the IRS, as well as distributed to each employee which they use to file taxes. To save time filling out your W2s, try out PaycheckCity Payroll for an inexpensive self-service payroll solution.
What are state withholding forms?
State withholding forms are tax documents completed by employees to have their employer withhold specific amounts on paychecks for their state taxes. It is similar to the federal Form W-4 that tells the employer about the employee’s withholding needs for federal taxes. Typically the states without income tax don’t have their own state W-4 since they don’t collect income tax. Otherwise most states have their own state W-4 form and update them annually.
