Form W-4 does not constitute a valid collection of information request as described in 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and 5 CFR 1320.6 like an I-9 does. W-4 does not specify whether or not the information requested is voluntary or mandatory. Invalid collection of information requests may be ignored without penalty.
Form 1040 also does not constitute a valid collection of information request as described in 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and 5 CFR 1320.6 , as it does not display a VALID Office of Management and Budget controll number. Form 1040 bears OMB # 1545-0074. The only form that has ever been approved requesting information from American Citizens regarding subtitle A income taxes is OMB #1545-0067 which corresponds to form 2555 FOREIGN EARNED INCOME. Currently there is no information collection request form approved for subtitle A income taxes. However it makes sense to continue to use the only form that was ever approved, form 2555 Foreign earned income. It is interesting that the only form approved for subtitle A income taxes is in agreement with what the law says about determining taxable income as shown above.
Pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.6 Public Protection Public Protection (a)Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that is subject to the requirements of this part. The protection provided by paragraph (a) of this section may be raised in the form of a complete defense, bar, or otherwise to the imposition of such penalty at any time during the agency administrative process in which such penalty may be imposed or in any judicial action applicable thereto.
