Tax Withholding

You can find your current withholding information listed under TAX INFORMATION on your pay stub on the right side at the top next to your LEAVE INFORMATION.

IRS Tax Withholding Calculator

If you are an employee, the Withholding Calculator can help you determine whether you need to give your employer a new Form W-4, Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate to avoid having too much or too little Federal income tax withheld from your pay. You can use your results from the calculator to help fill out the form. Who Can Benefit From The Withholding Calculator? Employees who would like to change their withholding to reduce their tax refund or their balance due; Employees whose situations are only approximated by the worksheets on the paper W-4 (e.g., anyone with concurrent jobs, or couples in which both are employed; those entitled to file as Head of Household; and those with several children eligible for the Child Tax Credit); Employees with non-wage income in excess of their adjustments and deductions, who would prefer to have tax on that income withheld from their paychecks rather than make periodic separate payments through the estimated tax procedures.

Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

Due to the passing of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, new tax tables have been released by the Internal Revenue Service.  These tax tables are reflected, via reduced federal withholding, on the checks that are being released this week.

The IRS has indicated that taxpayers with complicated tax situations MAY need to fill out new W-4's with their employers.  However, they have not released new W-4's for 2018 at this time.  We expect that new W-4's will be released by the end of February.  At that time they will also be releasing an online calculator to assist taxpayers in determining what should be filed with their employers.  Payroll will forward links to both of these when they are available.  They will also be available on this webpage.

Please do not call payroll regarding your situation, as we cannot offer financial advice.
