Annual Employee W-4 Notice - IRS regulations require employers to remind their employees that they may need to amend their current W-4 Form on an annual basis. Marriage, divorce, and births are changes that could affect their filing status for next year. Please provide this notice to your employees to fulfill this requirement. A memo from our Payroll Department which includes helpful links is posted for download under the Documents section of this site in the Announcements folder.
