California DE4 Form: This certificate, DE 4, is for California Personal Income Tax (PIT) withholding purposes only. The DE4 is used to compute the amount of taxes to be withheld from your wages, by your employer, to accurately reflect your state tax withholding obligation.
Deductions Worksheet Step 4(b): Fill out this section if you expect to claim deductions (such as itemized deductions) other than the standard deduction and want to reduce your withholding. To estimate your 2020 deductions use the Deductions Worksheet provided on page three of the W-4 form.
Dependent: A dependent is a person other than the taxpayer or spouse who entitles the taxpayer to claim a dependency exemption. Each dependency exemption decreases income subject to tax by the exemption amount. Your dependent must be a U.S. citizen, a national, a resident alien of the U.S., or a resident of Canada or Mexico. A dependent can be claimed by one and only one taxpayer in any given year.
Exempt : Exempt employee is a term that refers to a category of employees set out in the Fair Labor Standards Act. They do not receive overtime pay, nor do they qualify for the minimum wage
Form W-4: Form W-4 (otherwise known as the "Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate") is an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax form completed by an employee in the United States to indicate his or her tax situation (exemptions, status, etc.) to the employer.
Head of Household: Head of Household is a filing status for individual United States taxpayers. To use the Head of Household filing status, a taxpayer must: Be unmarried or considered unmarried at the end of the year. Have paid more than half the cost of keeping up a home for the tax year.
Multiple Jobs Worksheet Step2(b): If you choose the option in Step 2(b) on Form W-4, complete this worksheet (which calculates the total extra tax for all jobs) on only ONE Form W-4. The IRS advises that the worksheet should only be completed on one W-4 form and the result should be entered for the highest paying job only, to end up with the most accurate withholding.
Nonresident Alien (NRA): This income is taxed at a flat 30% rate, unless a tax treaty specifies a lower rate. Nonresident aliens must file and pay any tax due using Form 1040NR, U.S. Nonresident Alien Income Tax Return or Form 1040NR-EZ, U.S. Income Tax Return for Certain Nonresident Aliens with No Dependents.
Notice 1392: This Notice modifies the instructions to Form W-4 to take into account the restriction on a nonresident alien's filing status, the restriction on claiming the standard deduction, and the restriction on claiming tax credits and deductions for certain Nonresident aliens.
Publication 15-T: Employers use Publication 15-T to figure the amount of federal income tax to withhold from their employees' wages.
Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: The Act to provide for reconciliation pursuant to titles II and V of the concurrent resolution on the budget for fiscal year 2018, Pub.L. 115–97, is a congressional revenue act of the United States originally introduced in Congress as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, that amended the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.
Tax Withholding Estimator: The IRS encourages everyone to use the Tax Withholding Estimator to perform a “paycheck checkup.” This will help you make sure you have the right amount of tax withheld from your paycheck.
