Employee's Withholding Exemption and Status Certificate
Form HW-4 Rev 2018 Employee's Withholding Allowance and Status Certificate

Clear Form FORM HW-4 (REV. 2018) STATE OF HAWAII — DEPARTMENT OF TAXATION EMPLOYEE’S WITHHOLDING ALLOWANCE AND STATUS CERTIFICATE INSTRUCTIONS (NOTE: References to “married” and “spouse” are also references to “in a civil union” and “civil union partner,” respectively.) MARITAL STATUS—If you are legally separated from your spouse under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance, check the Single box. If you file as head of household on your tax return, you are treated as Single for withholding tax purposes. However, an additional withholding allowance may be claimed for this filing status. NUMBER OF WITHHOLDING ALLOWANCES—Do not claim more than the correct number of withholding allowances. However, if by claiming the correct number of withholding allowances you still expect to owe more income tax for the year than will be withheld, you may increase the amount withheld either by claiming fewer withholding allowances or by entering into an agreement with your employer to withhold an additional dollar amount. Note: Hawaii law does NOT allow “exempt” status for withholding purposes. NONWAGE INCOME—If you have a large amount of nonwage income, from sources such as interest or dividends, you should consider making estimated tax payments using Form N-1 or you may find that you owe additional tax at the end of the year. TWO-EARNER/TWO JOBS—If you have a working spouse or more than 1 job, figure the total number of allowances you are entitled to claim on all jobs using worksheets from only one Form HW-4. This total should be divided among all jobs. Your withholding will usually be most accurate when all allowances are claimed on the HW-4 filed for the highest paying job and zero allowances are claimed for the others. FILING THE CERTIFICATE—You must file this form with your employer or your employer must withhold tax from your wages as if you were single and claimed no withholding allowances. FILING A NEW CERTIFICATE—You SHOULD file a new certificate if you get married or are entitled to claim more withholding allowances. You MUST file a new certificate within 10 days if ANY of the following occurs: (a) If you are divorced or legally separated. (b) If your spouse, for whom you have been claiming a withholding allowance, commences claiming his or her own withholding allowance on a separate certificate. (c) If a dependent for whom you claimed a withholding allowance no longer qualifies as a dependent. You MUST file a new certificate on or before December 1 in case of the death of your spouse or the death of a dependent, unless such event occurs in December. WITHHOLDING ALLOWANCE FOR AGE—You may claim an additional withholding allowance for age if you are at least 65 years old and no one can claim you as a dependent. If you are married and filing a joint return, you may also claim an additional withholding allowance if your spouse is at least 65 years old, no one else can claim your spouse as a dependent, and your spouse is not already claiming such withholding allowance for himself / herself on a Form HW-4. HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD—Generally, you may claim head of household filing status on your tax return only if you are unmarried and pay more than 50% of the costs of keeping up a home for yourself and your qualifying child or any other person who is your dependent. PENALTIES—Penalties are imposed for willfully supplying false or fraudulent information or for willfully failing to supply information. CERTIFIED DISABLED PERSON—See the section, “What Is Not Subject to Withholding” in Booklet A, Employer’s Tax Guide. NONRESIDENT MILITARY SPOUSE—Under federal law, the State is prohibited from subjecting the income received by a service member’s nonresident spouse for services performed (i.e., wages) in Hawaii to Hawaii’s income tax beginning tax year 2009 if certain conditions are met. See Tax Information Release No. 2010-01 for further details. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION—Contact your employer or the Department of Taxation at 808-587-4242 (toll-free at 1-800-222-3229). ---------------------- Cut here and give the certificate to your employer.
