Tax Form W-4
Form W-4 Federal and State
General Form W-4 Information
In 2020 the federal government and IRS updated the federal tax rules and regulations. Due to these changes, the W-4 was also updated, mainly removing the personal allowances. Below are helpful links and guides on how to update the new W-4 including updating the form in Ignite. The Payroll Office no longer accepts paper W-4 forms, as it is now completed at your convenience in Ignite.
In order to make sure your changes are entered into Ignite for the pay period you intend, please check the Monthly or Bi-weekly payroll schedules dates under the Date to Submit Final Change Request column. Any Form W-4 that is entered by the date listed for that pay period will ensure your tax withholdings are withheld according to your new W-4. Changes made after those listed dates will take effect on the next pay date.
