How can I remove a tax exemption?

To remove an existing exemption in Zenefits:

  1. Click on the Directory app.
  2. Click on the employee's name.
  3. From the left-hand menu, select Tax Info
  4. Scroll down to the Exemptions table and click on the blue Edit link to be given the option to Remove.
    • Both currently active exemptions and those with a future effective date can be removed. Changes will apply going forward, and begin in the next payroll.
    • Exemptions are grouped by effective date. Individual exemptions in each group cannot be edited or removed individually. If only one exemption should be removed, the others will have to be re-added.
  5. Once you've completed removing the exemption in Zenefits, contact Customer Care. They will confirm if the exemption has been removed.

Please contact us to retroactively remove an exemption. Depending on the type of exemption and when it is removed, Zenefits Payroll may need to edit the  W-2, run a correction, or file an amendment for the company's taxes.
