W4 form

For auditing purposes is a photo/image of a competed and signed form acceptable? Or should I still request that the original be forwarded?


  • There is an IRS regulation which discusses the rules for electronic W'4s. As long as the W-4 is otherwise legal on its face and you can quickly get a hard copy to IRS if/when requested, then I am pretty sure it is legal for federal rules.
