Controlling Federal Income Tax Withholding with W-4 Resistance
Note: The IRS released a new withholding form in 2020 to adjust for the tax overhaul legislation passed at the end of 2017. If you have previously practiced W-4 withholding, you will find the new form very different. Use our formula on this flyer, or in Practical #1: Controlling Federal Income Tax Withholding, to see if your withholding is at a level that works for your resistance style; if not, you can change your W-4 anytime.
These flyers are designed for leafleting at events marking the August 6–9 anniversary of the atomic bombings of Japan (or anytime you choose).
