SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Title: Form 6466, Transmittal of Forms W-4 Reported Magnetically/Electronically, and Form 6467, Transmittal of Forms W-4 Reported Magnetically/Electronically (Continuation).

OMB Number: 1545-0314.

Form Number: Forms 6466 and 6467.

Abstract: Under regulation section 31.3402(f)(2)-1(g), employers are required to submit certain withholding certificates (Form W-4) to the Internal Revenue Service. Transmittal Form 6466 and the continuation sheet Form 6467 are submitted by an employer, or an authorized agent of the employer, who will be reporting submissions of Form W-4 on magnetic/electronic media.

Current Actions: A new section, Employer's Media Number, was added to Form 6466 and Form 6467 to help identify specific pieces of media. Some filers submit more than one tape or diskette. By identifying their media number, IRS can better match paperwork to media and expedite processing.
