Tips for completion of 2023 Form W4:

Check the appropriate filing status.

(If you are Married, the lower income spouse should mark "Single").

Only 1 Spouse should "claim" the dependents on the W4.

It is a good idea to check the box in "Step 2" which will trigger higher withholding if you have 2 jobs or a spouse with wages too.

Leaving Step 3 Blank if you have dependents will mean you will get a smaller check (more withholding) but can claim the dependent credits when you file your tax return.

Leave Line 4(a) and 4(b) blank in most cases.

Enter extra withholding on Line 4C if you want additional withholding taken out.

IRS and MN Revenue each have their own forms. (They don't have to be filled out with the same withholding allowances.) Be sure to turn both IRS and MN form into your employer.

Note: This new withholding format may cause confusion with employers and payroll services. Monitor your paystubs carefully and get help if you notice unusual fluctuations in your federal and state withholding.
