W-4 Form (Federal Taxes)
We cannot advise you on your decision for tax withholding, however, as a general rule of thumb, if you are single and your earned income will be more than $12,000 for 2020, you may owe federal income taxes. We encourage you to use the worksheet included with the W-4 form or talk to a trusted family member.
- If you do not believe you will owe taxes, you can write “Exempt” right below line 4(c) of the form. Be sure to only complete sections 1 and 5 of the form. Do not complete anything in sections 2, 3, or 4. If you do not write “Exempt,” takes will be withheld. (See page 2 of form)
- If you believe you will owe taxes, complete sections 1 and 5, also complete sections 2, 3, and/or 4 if they apply to you. Do not write in “Exempt.”
MW507 Form (Maryland Taxes)
Required to fill out even if you are not a Maryland resident
If you are single and your earned income will be more than $12,000 for 2020, you may owe Maryland income taxes. We encourage you to use the worksheet included with the MW507 form or talk to a trusted family member. If you do not believe you will owe taxes, you can write "Exempt" on line 3 of the form. If you believe you will owe taxes, you will want to put the number of exemptions you are claiming on line 1. Be sure to only enter something on one of these lines, not both. Be sure to fill in the top three lines/boxes, then sign and date at the bottom. (If you are a resident of WV, PA, DE, VA, or DC and would like taxes withheld for one of these states, please fill out the Maryland form and request the other state form from us.)
