TAX WITHHOLDING FORMS FOR 2023
The IRS has created a new Form W-4P (Withholding Certificate for Periodic Pension or Annuity Payments) that is now in use for requesting any federal tax withholding as of January 2023. The new Form W-4P is available at lacers.org/forms-info-sheets for your use. The following is a summary of some of the changes to the Form W-4P:
1. You may now select one of the following marital status options:
- Single or Married filing separately
- Married filing jointly or Qualifying surviving spouse
- Head of household
2. The new form captures income from multiple jobs/pensions/annuities.
3. You may claim dependents and other credits.
4. The default withholding is now Single with no adjustments (changed from Married with three allowances).
You may access your MyLACERS account at https://mylacers.lacers.org to view and estimate your tax withholdings. LACERS Members and beneficiaries who already receive ongoing payments and who do not wish to make changes to their federal tax withholding elections are not required to file a new form; however, it is recommended that you review your withholdings and determine whether an adjustment is necessary. If you live in California and wish to change your state tax withholding election, you will need to submit a separate state tax withholding, Form DE-4P, also available at lacers.org/forms-info-sheets. For more information on new Federal tax withholding forms, please navigate to our Frequently Asked Questions under the Retiree tab at lacers.org/frequently-asked-questions.
