Payroll Information

IRS from W-4, Employee’s Withholding
IRS from W-4, Employee’s Withholding Please be aware that employees claiming “exempt” from withholding during 2014 on their IRS form W-4, must complete a new Form W-4 by February 13, 2015 to maintain their “exempt” status. If employees claiming “exempt” do not give their employer a new completed W-4 by February 13, 2015, the employer must begin withholding federal income tax as if they are single, with zero withholding allowances. Any taxes withheld after February 13th and by the time the employee furnishes a new exempt W-4 are not refunded; since employee did not have a valid W-4 on file during that time.

Should you have any questions, please contact the Payroll Department at (956) 548-8391.
