FORMS FOR BUSINESS
New Hire Paperwork:
When you start a business, you will need some required governmental forms. Many of these forms can be found on the Wisconsin Department of Revenue’s website.
Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, you must verify the identity and employment eligibility of anyone you hire for employment in the United States. This includes citizens and non-citizens alike. The Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 was developed by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to verify that persons are eligible to work in the U.S. You should complete a Form I-9 for every employee hired after November 6, 1986. After the form is completed, sign it and retain the completed form for your files. Click here to download an I9 Form.
To know how much income tax to withhold from employees’ wages you should have a form W-4, Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate, on file for each employee. Ask all new employees to give you a signed Form W-4 when they start and make the form effective with the first wage payment. If a new employee does not give you a completed Form W-4, withhold tax as if he or she is single with no withholding allowances. Click here to download a W4 Form.
