The IRS has released the 2018 Form W-4P. This form is used to report by payees to tell payers the correct amount of federal income tax to withhold from their payments.


There are a number of changes from the previous revision:

  • New General Instructions and Specific Instructions sections
    • Specific instructions are for Personal Allowances Worksheet, Deductions, Adjustments, and Additional Income Worksheet, and Multiple Pensions/More-Than-One-Income Worksheet
  • Personal Allowances Worksheet has been updated
  • Certain withholding and deduction amounts have been updated
  • Tax will be withheld if the taxable amount of the payee’s pension or annuity is at least $1,990 a month if they have not already filed Form W-4P to their payer
    • Previously this amount was $1,720/month.
