Form W-4, Employee’s Withholding Certificate is the tax form for employees to adjust their federal income tax withholding. For 2022 taxes, employees can fill out Form W-4 to provide their tax information to their employers.
The Internal Revenue Service doesn’t mandate every employee to file Form W-4 but not filing it can result in a higher withholding than necessary. This is because the Internal Revenue Service requires employers to withhold federal income taxes at the highest single rate for employees that did not furnish them with a copy of W-4. The bottom line is employees aren’t required to file Form W-4 but in a way, they do.
There are several ways you can furnish a copy of Form W4 to your employer for the 2022 taxes – the easiest way being filing an online copy and emailing it to your employer. Due to COVID-19, many businesses have transitioned into working from home, and some even made it permanent. The ability to carry out interview processes, completing business forms and contracts, and filing government forms that are needed online is a huge timesaver.
Here is how you can file Form W4 for the 2022 tax year.

The purpose of Form W4 is to provide employers with the necessary tax information. Everyone’s tax return is slightly different, so is their tax liability – even if our income is the same. Someone single getting paid the same amount as someone who’s married with two kids is going to pay more tax, after all. For these reasons, your employer needs your anticipated tax return information as stated on Form W4 to withhold federal income taxes as accurately as possible.

File a new Form W4 when there are significant changes to your tax return such as changes in filing status (getting married or divorced), having dependents, significant increase or decrease in anticipated deductions, etc. Let your employer know any major change by filing a new Form that can alter your tax liability or the way that the taxes are calculated.

The Internal Revenue Service updates tax forms like Form W4 as they have a direct relation with the 1040. Although not many changes occur – if at all – on Form W4, the IRS brings a new Form W4 for every tax year. So yes, there is a new Form W4 for 2022.
