Federal & State Withholding Requirements for Employee
All employees must complete the Federal Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate (Form W-4) for federal tax withholding as well as the appropriate state withholding certificate (based on the state in which you live). The Federal form (Form W-4) and the North Carolina Employee's Witholding Allowance Certificate (Form NC-4) can be found on the Financial Services Forms webpage.
Employees should complete new tax withholding forms (Federal & state) in order to notify Payroll of any changes in tax status (i.e. address changes, changes in the number of exemptions, etc.). An employee's current withholding status can be found in Banner Self Service or on their pay stub.
Employees that filed a form W-4 in 2013 claiming exemptions from Federal withholding taxes will need to file a new form W-4 with Payroll no later than January 31, 2014. If a new Form W-4 is not submitted, the IRS requires the University to withhold taxes based on the withholding status of Single and Zero (0) exemptions. The same applies to employees claiming exemptions from State tax withholdings. In order to claim exemptions from NC state tax withholding, a new form NC-4 must also be filed with Payroll no later than January 31, 2014.
