W-4 Form Changes Effective January 1, 2020

The Internal Revenue Service has made substantial changes to the tax code that will impact the 2020 payroll tax year. The IRS has released a new W-4 form as a result of these changes. For more detailed information please see the IRS FAQs regarding the new W-4 form.

As you prepare for the next payroll tax year be aware of some important changes:

  • Any new employee starting January 1, 2020 or later must use the new W-4 Employee Withholding Certificate form.

  • Effective January 1, 2020 any employee that needs to make changes to their withholdings must use the new W-4 Employee Withholding Certificate form.

  • Sage 100 2017 and earlier will not support the additional fields necessary to correctly calculate federal withholding taxes.

Action required for Sage users:

  • If you are using Sage 100 2018 or 2019 installation of Payroll 2.20.0 is needed, due to be released mid-December 2019, and any later updates that are released.

  • If you are using Sage 100 2017 or earlier, you will need to work with your partner and upgrade to Sage 100 2018 or 2019 to remain compliant.
