Common Mistakes to Avoid:

  • If you want to claim zero allowances (the highest withholding amount), please enter “0” in line 5 “Total number of allowances you’re claiming”.
  • If you type “Exempt” on Line 7 you will not have any taxes taken from your paycheck.
  • When completing your W4 information, please enter “0” on line 6 “Additional amount, if any, you want withheld from each paycheck” if you do not want any additional money withheld above your chosen allowances.
  • If any required field does not apply to you, especially on the I-9, please enter N/A in the field.
  • Required fields show as Yellow boxes with the word “Required” written in them.

Remember to log out of all email accounts once you are finished on the computer.
