How to Complete the New 2020 Form W-4

The 2020 Form W-4, Employee’s Withholding Certificate, is very different from previous versions. This is due to the federal tax law changes that took place in 2018.  The IRS is not requiring all employees to complete a new form unless they were hired in 2020, want to make any changes or would like to continue their exempt status.
