Abstract

This document provides guidance on the withholding of income taxes using the Onboard software applications.

U.S. companies use two types of forms to manage the withholding of income taxes:

  • Form W-4 (Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate). U. S. federal form (Internal Revenue Service). Employers use the form to ensure the correct amount of federal income tax is withheld from a hire's pay.

  • State tax withholding forms. U.S. and Canada state tax withholding forms. Employers use the forms to ensure the correct amount of state/local income tax is withheld from a hire's pay. Note: Not every state uses a state tax withholding form; some states use Form W-4 as their state withholding form; and some states use their own version of Form W-4 (and can have multiple forms).

There are two Onboard applications that work together for the withholding of income taxes:

  • Onboard. Used by new hires to complete/sign/submit:

    • Form W-4. At the end of the task, there is a Form W-4 PDF.

    • Appropriate state/local tax withholding form. At the end of the task, there is a tax form PDF.

  • Onboard Manager. Used by onboarding managers to:

    • Review the new hire's completed/signed/submitted Form W-4 PDF and tax form PDFs.

    • Initiate an email to the new hire if there is a discrepancy that needs correction. The hire (using Onboard) can redo a W-4 or state tax form.
