When the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) was signed into law in December 2017, sweeping changes to Form W-4 became a matter of “when,” not “if.” Those changes—arguably the biggest since the form debuted in 1943—are finally materializing for the 2020 tax year, after a one-year implementation delay prompted by feedback from payroll and tax communities. Let’s provide some context for the current W-4 situation before we highlight the latest updates.
TCJA suspends all personal and dependency exemptions for employees as well as their spouses and dependents through tax year 2025. Plus, it greatly alters how itemized deductions are claimed on Schedule A.
Together, these two shifts and a few others have complicated the withholding situation for many taxpayers. The Government Accounting Office even issued a 2018 warning that unless they adjusted their withholding, more than 30 million additional filers would owe taxes in 2019.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act brought about many changes for the 2019 tax return filing season. There are so many changes that there was concern about possible delays to the start of the filing season as the Internal Revenue Service works to update software, forms, instructions, and publications with restricted resources. Let’s learn how Employers can mitigate these changes.

Employers should be aware of all the workplace regulations that are in place to ensure compliance. Employers must get prepared for all the employment regulations scheduled to be effective January 1, 2019, 2020 and beyond. Federal regulations have increased more this year than previous years. Both Federal and State regulations have at times been at odds with each other. The Department of Labor (DOL), IRS, State Regulations have increased their efforts to audit companies who have not updated their policies & workplace regulations. The other regulatory agencies are also increasing efforts to target Employers who are not compliant with their regulations. Not only are the many new workplace laws that will impact Employers, but also those laws that were effective in 2018-2020 & Beyond but Employers were not aware.
