Q) I want to file a W-4V form.
1.) Do I send it to:
SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICE
2340 DREW STREET CLEARWATER, FL 33765
2.) Do I send it to anyone’s attention?
3.) How can I verify that it was received and filed?
A) Yes, if you want to file a Form W-4V, which is used to request voluntary withholding from your Social Security benefits, you should send it to the Social Security Administration (SSA). Specifically, you can mail the completed and signed form to the address below:
Social Security Administration P.O. Box 397 Wilkes-Barre, PA 18767-0397
Alternatively, you may also be able to submit the form online through your My Social Security account on the SSA website. According to the Social Security Administration – You can ask us to withhold federal taxes from your Social Security when you apply for benefits.
If you are already receiving benefits or if you want to change or stop your withholding, you’ll need a form W-4V from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
You can download the form, or call the IRS toll-free number 1-800-829-3676 and ask for Form W-4V, Voluntary Withholding Request. (If you are deaf or hard of hearing, call the IRS TTY number, 1-800-829-4059.)
When you complete the form, you will need to select the percentage of your monthly benefit amount you want withheld. You can have 7%, 10%, 15% or 25% of your monthly benefit withheld for taxes.
Note: Only these percentages can be withheld. Flat dollar amounts are not accepted.
If you want to know how much a particular percentage is equal to in dollars, call us at 1-800-772-1213. (If you are deaf or hard of hearing, call our TTY number, 1-800-325-0778.)
Sign the form and return it to your local Social Security office by mail or in person.
