Complete Form W-4 so that your employer can withhold the correct federal income tax from your pay.
Give Form W-4 to your employer.
Your withholding is subject to review by the IRS.
Complete Steps 2–4 ONLY if they apply to you; otherwise, skip to Step 5.
TIP: To be accurate, submit a 2021 Form W-4 for all other jobs. If you (or your spouse) have self-employment income, including as an independent contractor, use the estimator.
Complete Steps 3–4(b) on Form W-4 for only ONE of these jobs. Leave those steps blank for the other jobs. (Your withholding will be most accurate if you complete Steps 3–4(b) on the Form W-4 for the highest paying job.)
If your total income will be $200,000 or less ($400,000 or less if married filing jointly):
Under penalties of perjury, I declare that this certificate, to the best of my knowledge and belief, is true, correct, and complete.
This form is not valid unless you sign it

Three jobs: If you and/or your spouse have three jobs at the same time, complete lines 2a, 2b, and 2c below. Otherwise, skip to line 3.
