What’s a Lock-in Letter?
What is a lock-in letter? When a lock-in rate may stop? What will happen if you don’t lock-in the withholding rate? Here’s the scenario: The IRS sends you Letter 2800C, WHC Lock-in Letter to Employer, when an employee didn’t have enough federal income withheld. The lock-in letter tells you to withhold at a specific rate from an employee’s wages. You’ll also receive the employee copy of the letter. You must give it to the employee within 10 business days, unless they don’t work for you anymore. If they return to work within 12 months of you receiving the letter, you should begin withholding income tax from the employee’s wages based on the withholding rate in the letter.
