General Instructions

Purpose of form. Give this form to the third-party payer of your sick pay, such as an insurance company, if you want federal income tax withheld from the payments. You are not required to have federal income tax withheld from sick pay paid by a third party. However, if you choose to request such withholding, Internal Revenue Code sections 3402(o) and 6109 and their regulations require you to provide the information requested on this form. Do not use this form if your employer (or its agent) makes the payments because employers are already required to withhold federal income tax from sick pay.

Note. If you receive sick pay under a collective bargaining agreement, see your union representative or employer.

Definition. Sick pay is a payment that you receive:

Under a plan to which your employer is a party and

In place of wages for any period when you are temporarily absent from work because of your sickness or injury.

Amount to be withheld. Enter on this form the amount that you want withheld from each payment. The amount that you enter:

Must be in whole dollars (for example, $35, not $34.50).

Must be at least $4 per day, $20 per week, or $88 per month based on your payroll period.

Must not reduce the net amount of each sick pay payment that you receive to less than $10.

For payments larger or smaller than a regular full payment of sick pay, the amount withheld will be in the same proportion as your regular withholding from sick pay. For example, if your regular full payment of $100 a week normally has $25 (25%) withheld, then $20 (25%) will be withheld from a partial payment of $80.

Caution. You may be subject to a penalty if your tax payments during the year are not at least 90% of the tax shown on your tax return. For exceptions and details, see Pub. 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax. You may pay tax during the year through withholding or estimated tax payments or both. To avoid a penalty, make sure that you have enough tax withheld or make estimated tax payments using Form

1040-ES, Estimated Tax for Individuals. You may estimate your federal income tax liability by using the worksheet above.

Sign this form. Form W-4S is not valid unless you sign it.

Statement of income tax withheld. After the end of the year, you will receive a Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, reporting the taxable sick pay paid and federal income tax withheld during the year. These amounts are reported to the Internal Revenue Service.

Changing your withholding. Form W-4S remains in effect until you change or revoke it. You may do this by giving a new Form W-4S or a written notice to the payer of your sick pay. To revoke your previous Form W-4S, complete a new Form W-4S and write “Revoked” in the money amount box, sign it, and give it to the payer.

Specific Instructions for Worksheet

You may use the worksheet on page 1 to estimate the amount of federal income tax that you want withheld from each sick pay payment. Use your tax return for last year and the worksheet as a basis for estimating your tax, tax credits, and withholding for this year.

You may not want to use Form W-4S if you already have your total tax covered by estimated tax payments or other withholding.

If you expect to file a joint return, be sure to include the income, deductions, credits, and payments of both yourself and your spouse in figuring the amount you want withheld.

Caution. If any of the amounts on the worksheet change after you give Form W-4S to the payer, you should use a new Form W-4S to request a change in the amount withheld.

Additional amount for the elderly or blind. An additional standard deduction of $1,200 is allowed for a married individual (filing jointly or separately) or qualifying widow(er) who is 65 or older or blind, $2,400 if 65 or older and blind. If both spouses are 65 or older or blind, an additional $2,400 is allowed on a joint return ($2,400 on a separate return if you can claim an exemption for your spouse). If both spouses are 65 or older and blind, an additional $4,800 is allowed on a joint return ($4,800 on a separate return if you can claim an exemption for your spouse). An additional $1,550 is allowed for an unmarried individual (single or head of household) who is 65 or older or blind, $3,100 if 65 or older and blind.

Limited standard deduction for dependents. If you can be claimed as a dependent on another person’s return, your standard deduction is the greater of (a) $1,000 or (b) your earned income plus $350 (up to the regular standard deduction for your filing status). If you are 65 or older or blind, see Pub. 505 for additional amounts that you may claim.

Certain individuals not eligible for standard deduction. For the following individuals, the standard deduction is zero.

A married individual filing a separate return if either spouse itemizes deductions.

A nonresident alien individual.

An individual filing a return for a period of less than 12 months because of a change in his or her annual accounting period.

Line 7—Credits

Include on this line any tax credits that you are entitled to claim, such as the child tax and higher education credits, credit for child and dependent care expenses, earned income credit, or credit for the elderly or the disabled.

Line 9—Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax

Enter the federal income tax that you expect will be withheld this year on income other than sick pay and any payments made or to be made with 2014 estimated tax payments. Include any federal income tax already withheld or to be withheld from wages and pensions.
