View and update Form W-4 (withholding elections)

For employees

For employers and admins

Gusto stores the only most recent version of each employee's Federal W-4. If an employee's personal data or withholding info changes, Gusto automatically updates their W-4 and prompts the employee to sign it. The previous version is not stored.

Important reminders

State income tax withholding forms

For state income tax withholding and certain local agencies, employers are required to have their new employees physically sign the state and local version of the Form W-4, and store it for your records.

If an employee requests a change to their state and/or local withholding instructions, have your employee physically re-sign the state/local version of the Form W-4, and store the new document for your records.
