Time to review W-4 forms

It is time for employees to review their current Form W-4 (Employees Withholding Allowance Certificate) status for preferred changes in filing status needed for tax year 2019.

In mid-February of each year, everyone with EXEMPT status will see the status expire, and IRS regulations require withholdings to be single and 0 if the exempt status is not renewed.

Employees may refile as EXEMPT via HRSS or by using a W-4 Withholding Allowance form. The deadline for filing the form is Feb. 1, 2019, to continue the exempt status for 2019 with no interruptions. All forms should be submitted to Human Resources, Mailcode 6520.
