Can I change my W-4 during the year?

Subject: Form W-4
Date: Tue, 26 Apr 2005
I have two questions pertaining to Form W-4 (Federal Withholding.)
- Can you make as many changes as you want to your W-4 form during the year?
- Does a W-4 form have to be a perfect copy - no errors or scratched items on it?
Thanks for your assistance,

- You can make changes by submitting new W-4 forms throughout the year. There may be practical issues of having your employer give them effect when computing payroll.
- Form W-4 doesn't have to be pristine. However, you can easily get "fresh" copies at the IRS web site, www.irs.gov, so why not do so?
