Data Polish #4: Form W-4

Form W-4s from employees and any state equivalent of that form are incredibly important to file correctly. A correct Form W-4 helps ensure you’re withholding the correct amount of federal income tax from the employee’s paycheck. While everyone should fill out a Federal Form W-4, not everyone may fill out a state W-4 equivalent. It depends on the state.

The following states do not require a state income tax form:

  • Alaska
  • Florida
  • Nevada
  • New Hampshire
  • South Dakota
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Washington
  • Wyoming

If your state is not on this list, check your state’s Department of Revenue for its specific state income tax form.
