How do I update and existing W4?

You came to the right place to reach your goal, @sherry-snodgrass.

 

I am here to guide you in updating employee information on your existing W4 form. Let me show you how:

 

  1. Go to the Payroll menu, and then choose Employees.
  2. Click the name of the employee.
  3. Choose Edit ✎ beside Pay.
  4. Select the 2020 W-4 or later radio button.
  5. Click on Update
  6. Enter the employee's W-4 information into the form.
  7. Click Done to save.

 

After that, you can print a W-4 form from your QuickBooks Online account or the IRS site. 

 

Additionally, when you need details about the W-4 form, you can review this article from the IRS website: FAQs on the 2020 Form W-4.

 

Keep in touch if you have further payroll concerns with QuickBooks. I'm always available to help you more. Have a blissful day.

Hello, R72. 

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community. Your employer has to do it. Just provide them with your updated W-4, so they can reflect the changes in their QuickBooks. Please take note that once revising the W4 data to the 2020 version, you'll no longer be able to return to the old version.

 

To fill in the W-4 info. Here's how: 

 

  1. Open the email and click Get set up or Complete setup now (or Sign in).
  2. Fill in all requested info: personal, W-4, and bank account. Bank account only appears if your employer selected to pay via direct deposit.
  3. Check all of your info to make sure it's correct and sign your W-4.
  4. Select Save or Submit.
