Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate, also known as the W-4 Form is one of the most crucial tax forms that you will be filing and giving it your employer. As the Internal Revenue Service requires everyone to pay their taxes throughout the year gradually, this piece of paper is very important on your end.
On the form, you will be asked a lot of sensitive questions such as your address, Social Security Number, Marriage Status, etc. This is because all of these information regards will have an impact on how much taxes you will be paying on your income. Entering the correct information will save you from a lot of trouble.
If you were to think you will pay less taxes on your income tax by withholding less, it would be a huge mistake as this form only determines the amount of money will be withheld from your paycheck in order to pay your taxes. Not filing this will surprise you with a larger tax bill when the tax season arrives.
How to Print IRS Form W-4
The Internal Revenue Service offers all of its forms and documents online. We strongly suggest avoiding any websites or platforms that offer these documents for any amount of money. The irs.gov has everything you need to offer but navigating on the website can be complicated to find what you’re looking for.

As a side note keep in mind that if you’re married but filing separately, check the box that says ”Married, but withhold at higher Single rate” as it may mix things up with the IRS and your tax refund might be delayed. Also, expecting no tax liability? Enter EXEMPT in the 7th part of the form so no money from your paycheck will be withheld.
