Without Form W-4, the employer won’t be able to withhold tax at the accurate rate which will result in federal income tax withholding more than necessary. Although this will surely avoid under-withholding penalties, you’ll get the excess amount paid in your tax refund. In a way, this is thought of as loaning away your money to the government only to get it back later.
