Adjust Wage Withholding - Forms DE 4 and W-4

Make sure that you do not have too much or too little state or federal income tax withheld from your pay. Use the calculators to figure the number of allowances you should claim to have the correct amount of tax withheld. Then complete Forms DE 4 and W-4 and give them to your employer to make the changes to your withholding.
