Missouri offers resources for taxpayers affected by withholding tables error

Missouri State Senator Dave Schatz in his weekly column discussed the resources that have been set up by the Department of Revenue (department) to help corporate and personal income taxpayers affected by an error in the state's 2018 withholding tables. (There are no errors in the 2019 withholding tables). Due to the error, individuals who normally expect to receive a refund may not receive it and those who normally do not expect a tax bill may end up with one.

Wisconsin publishes withholding tax guide

For corporate and personal income tax purposes, the Wisconsin Department of Revenue has published an updated withholding tax guide effective for withholding periods beginning on or after April 1, 2014. The guide notes that the current withholding tax rates will continue for the 2019 tax year. Further, beginning January 1, 2019, employers filing on a quarterly, monthly, or semi- monthly basis cannot submit an annual reconciliation of Wisconsin tax withheld (Form WT-7) until all deposit reports (Form WT-6) have been filed. Additionally, a new stand-alone W-2 application allows businesses to key in and submit W-2s and 1099s at any time during the year in My Tax Account. For nonresident entertainers, the withholding report (Form WT-11) is tax-year specific and allows a person to report withholding for multiple nonresident entertainers. Also nonresident entertainers may request a lower withholding rate by using the new Form WT-12. Among other topics, the guide discusses registration and general withholding information, depositing withheld taxes, reconciliation process, additional information and forms, and income tax withholding methods and tables. (Withholding Tax Guide W-166, Wisconsin Department of Revenue, February 2019.)

Oregon discusses new OR-W-4 form to estimate withholding

The Oregon Department of Revenue issued a press release urging personal income taxpayers to perform a paycheck checkup to ensure they are withholding enough from their wages. Failure to withhold appropriately in 2019 could lead to an unexpected tax bill in 2020. Owing to the recent federal law changes, the federal W-4 form no longer meets the state's withholding requirements; therefore, for tax year 2019, taxpayers are required to use the new Oregon Form OR-W-4, Oregon Withholding, and online withholding calculator so that they can accurately determine the appropriate withholding amount for the state. The new form and calculator are available on the department's website at https://www.oregon.gov/dor/.

Unemployment Insurance Reports with Social Security

SSA proposes removing 'inability to communicate in English' as an education category

The SSA is proposing to eliminate the education category "inability to communicate in English" when it evaluates disability claims for adults under Titles II and XVI of the Social Security Act. Changes in the national workforce since the agency added this category to its rules in 1978 demonstrate that this education category is no longer a reliable indicator of an individual's educational attainment or the vocational impact of an individual's education. The proposed revisions reflect research and data related to English language proficiency, work, and education; expansion of the international reach of the SSA's disability programs; and audit findings by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG). The proposed revisions also would help the SSA better assess the vocational impact of education in the disability determination process. Comments are due by April 2, 2019.

SSA seeks comments on proposed information gathering activities

The Social Security Administration is soliciting comments from the public regarding a number of forms and information gathering activities prior to their submission for clearance by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), as well as for some items that already have been submitted to the OMB.

Specifically, the SSA wants feedback on the need for the information solicited and its practical utility; the accuracy of the agency's burden estimate; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the manner in which the information is collected; and ways to minimize the burden on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
