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.
