The purpose of the W-4 form is to tell the Federal government and your local State government how many exemptions/allowances you choose to have withheld from your paycheck.
The more allowances you put, the less taxes will be taken out. The less allowances you have, the more taxes will be taken out. For Example, You can claim ZERO Dependents and file at the higher Single rate to have the most tax possible taken out. If you find that this is not enough for your needs then please add an additional amount to be withdrawn on that field.
Read over the form and follow the directions to help you determine how many allowances are right for you.
State Taxes - each state is different and some states require employee's to pay state income tax as well as federal. Please be aware of your individual state requirements. For help with this, you can visit your state's IRS web page here:

The I-9 form is to determine each employee's eligibility to work for a US based company. Lifebushido participates in E-verify.
This will require a notarization or authorized representative to complete the form. Your bank or financial institution should have a notary and normally does not charge their own account holders for notarizing documents. You will need to fill out the form, have the notary public make copies of your supporting documents for you and have the notary witness you sign the I-9 form, as well as have the</font>supporting documents page notarized.

The actual I-9 form does not need to be notarized, only the page that contains copies of the supporting documents.

A Notary is is an easy option because notaries are accustomed to signing and approving documents. The Notary would be acting as an “Authorized Representative” of Lifebushido just to verify the documents for us, and they do not need to stamp the forms - only to check the documents and fill out section 2 . A Notary is usually your best and quickest option.

If you cannot find a Notary to complete your I-9 then some other options are:

  • Attorney
  • Accountant
  • Bank Representative
  • Post Office or Library representative
