EWS W4 Info - Allow users to request Exemptions/Allowances and Additional Withholding for State

EWS >  Personal > W4 Info only allows an end user to request Additional Withholding for State tax. Limiting this makes it far less useful in supporting a paperless environment if they still have to submit a W4 form for the remaining info. Would like to have the full range of options(exemptions/allowances) since the request has to be approved by HR Staff anyway.

    Additionally, Exemption and Allowance options vary from state to state, but EWS combines both into one field. It would be less confusing for employees if they could have a separate box for Exemptions and Allowances. A layout that matches the HR State Box would be ideal.

    There should also be a statement on the screen similar to the one on the W4 "under penalties of perjury, I declare that I have examined this certificate and, to the best of my knowledge and belief, it is true, correct and complete."  Adding that by submitting electronically it is understood that is a signed, legal documentation of request.
