If an employee claims “Exempt” status and wants this status to continue into the new year, they must submit a fresh W-4 that claims this status to their employer.
You can check with your payroll service as to whether an employee claiming “Exempt” status can submit a new W-4 directly to the payroll service or if the form needs to be routed through the production. (Click here for instructions on how to share and collect a W-4 in TiM.)
For more information regarding the W-4, please visit IRS.gov.
