I concur and good points. Probably the best approach is to ask folks to look up their total deductions, child tax credits and other income from last year's tax return, and ask if they expect any major changes. It may also be helpful to refer folks to www.irs.gov/w4app, which will walk them through an easy Q&A format to determine the best settings for Form W-4. This works anytime during the year, so anyone can see if they are on track to have the right amount withheld. - Pete

The employer is instructed to divide the tax credit amount claimed in step 3 by the number of pay periods in the year, and reduce calculated federal income tax withholding by that amount for each paycheck.
