Correction to the amounts in the 2022 Form W-4P, Deductions Worksheet, Line 4


The amounts in line 4 of the Step 4(b) – Deductions Worksheet have been corrected as shown below.

  • $1,750 if you're single or head of household.
  • $1,400 if you're a qualifying widow(er) or you're married and one of you is under age 65.
  • $2,800 if you're married and both of you are age 65 or older.

The correct amounts are in the January 2022 revision, released on January 31, 2022. Don't use the original 2022 Form W-4P, available from January 3 to January 30, 2022. If you used the original 2022 Form W-4P, provide your payees with the January 2022 revision, as the amounts provided on line 4 of the original form may cause a payee to have less tax than expected withheld.
