Lock In Letters

At times, the IRS may give an employer an order to withhold taxes at a minimum rate. Therefore, SPF-API provides a mechanism to prevent employees from changing certain state or federal withholding forms.

Sample Request

In the sample request below, use the lockInLetters element to provide a single state abbreviation or a comma-separated list of states. For a Federal lock-in letter, use the value "FEDERAL".
