IRS Releases Draft 2019 Form W-4 and Instructions


The IRS has released a draft of the 2019 Form W-4, Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate, and a draft of the 2019 Instructions for Form W-4. The draft Form W-4 has been substantially revised to comply with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). Both the way withholding amounts will be calculated and the form that employees will complete will be drastically different beginning in 2019. Employees will be strongly encouraged, but not required, to file a new Form W-4 for 2019.
