If you are withholding taxes on your employees’ wages, you are required to complete a Withholding Tax Form (WH-1). It is imperative that this form be completed properly to ensure that your business is withholding and reporting accurately. In addition, the information that is collected from the WH-1 helps determine how much of the taxpayers’ money goes to the counties, which is used for local services.
The best and easiest way to complete a WH-1 is through INtax. This is Indiana’s free online tax filing program that allows you to file and pay your business taxes (including withholding). With INtax you also can upload W2s, W2Gs, and 1099Rs, register a new tax type with the Indiana Department of Revenue, and much more. For more information about INtax, please visit www.intax.in.gov/
However, if a business chooses to complete a paper WH-1, it is important to keep the following do’s and don’ts in mind:
More do’s and don’ts, and an example of how to complete a WH-1 correctly, can be found on the Indiana Department of Revenue’s Web site at www.in.gov/dor/4183.htm
For additional information about the WH-1, contact the Department at (317) 233-4016. Or if you would like to speak to a bilingual representative, call (317) 232-2240 (press 2 for Spanish) from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, or submit questions via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
