I employ H-2A workers. Should I withhold taxes from their pay?

While withholding is not required by law, withholding may benefit both H-2A employers and H-2A workers. Withholding creates an incentive for H-2A workers to file a tax return. When workers file tax returns, the IRS does not have to initiate collection efforts, and employers do not have to deal with hassles such as wage garnishment. If an H-2A employer does not withhold income, the worker should make estimated payments to avoid owing a lot of taxes at the end of the year.
