Form W4 Spanish, also known as Form W4 SP is the employee’s withholding certificate in Spanish. Employees can fill out this tax form just like the English version of this tax form to provide information about their anticipated tax return so that the employer can withhold federal income taxes accurately.
The biggest mistake known about this tax form is that it can be filed by any employee if the employee’s first language is Spanish. This is completely wrong. As an employee working within 50 of the states, you must fill out the English version of Form W4.
Form W4 SP is only accepted by the Internal Revenue Service if you’re working in Puerto Rico. Other than the residents of Puerto Rico, you must fill out W4 Form 2021 for the current tax year, not the W4 SP Form 2021.
The only difference between the English and Spanish versions of Form W4 is the language. Aside from that, there is no difference between the two forms. You can simply go ahead and file Form W4 if you’re working in Puerto Rico and furnish your employer with a copy.
Form W4 SP will then be used by your employer alongside Publication 15-T to figure out tax withholding. If you’re working at two or more jobs, make sure to file Form W4 for each job you’re holding.
