  • IRS Tax Withholding Estimator. The calculator helps you figure out proper withholding for Form W-4. To determine this, it asks questions about expected wages up to the end of the year, how much has been withheld so far, and what deductions are going to be claimed on the personal income tax return.
  • W-4 Withholding Allowance Certificate Form. This link takes you to the IRS website where you can print the W-4 form. This form requires an original signature. Please print out this form and return it to the payroll office.
