The transition of many private and state-owned companies to electronic documentation has provoked an increased demand for the formation of reporting documentation in this form. But since these technologies are not yet generally accepted, questions remain about the possibilities of signing, as well as the legality of such documents.

What is a W-4 form?
W-4 is a federal form that allows employees to determine how much federal income tax is withheld from their payroll. Since the company fills out this form, the employee can at any time clarify whether there are no hidden payments or other expensive items from his salary, about which he has not been notified.
At any time, an employee may request a copy of the W-4 form. The electronic version of such a document is considered legal and has proper weight if all encryption and confidentiality protocols are followed. The employer must also ensure unrestricted access to these documents for interested employees – you cannot refuse to provide a copy of the W-4 form upon request.
Who signs the W-4 form?
All new employees must complete the W-4 form to accurately determine with the employer the number of annual wages and the amount of taxation for this amount. If you have doubts about how much tax was withheld, you can always request this form and clarify.
