Completing the Indiana Withholding Tax Form (WH-1) is no small task. In fact, it is a very important task and the responsibility for every Indiana business withholding taxes from its employees. And when completed correctly, this form ensures that a business’s withholding taxes by county are reported accurately and timely. However, if not completed correctly, there is a risk that taxpayer money doesn’t go to the respective counties, which, you can imagine, is a pretty big problem.
The best and easiest way to complete a WH-1 is through INtax. This is Indiana’s free online tax filing program that allows you to file and pay your business taxes (including withholding and sales); upload W2s, W2Gs, and 1099Rs; register a new tax type; and more.
However, if a business chooses to complete a paper WH-1 (despite the ease and convenience of INtax), it is important to keep the following do’s and don’ts in mind:
More do’s and don’ts along with an example of how to complete a WH-1 correctly can be found on the Department’s Web site at www.in.gov/dor/4183.htm But remember that you wouldn’t even have to worry about these do’s and don’ts if you simply file and pay your withholding taxes using INtax.
