The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has released Publication 15-T, New Wage Withholding and Advance Earned Income Credit Payment Tables (For Wages Paid Through December 2009). Publication 15-T contains revised withholding tables to implement changes mandated by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (the Act) as well as information on other changes required by the Act such as increased commuter exclusion amounts and changes required to the adjustment to taxes withheld on nonresident aliens.

The IRS recommends making a copy of the notice provided on page 73 of Publication 15-T available to all employees so that they may understand the change in withholding. Employees are not required to file a new Form W-4, Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate or its Spanish equivalent, Formulario W-4(SP), Certificado de Exención de la Retención del Empleado to see the impact of the tax law change, but may wish to do so to ensure the correct amount of tax is withheld.

Vision Payroll implemented the revised withholding tables last week and eligible employees should notice an increase in net pay with their current paycheck.

Over the next several days, Vision Payroll will be posting additional articles on changes to payroll and HR by other sections of the Act. We’re also planning a seminar on implementing these changes, so contact Vision Payroll if you’d like to attend.
