Payroll Department issues ‘to-do’ list

A 2012 year-end “to-do” list from Payroll:

  • Using your most recent electronic pay stub, please verify the spelling of your first and last name, mailing address and withholding allowances.  If any information is incorrect, please immediately contact the Payroll Office at extensions 4018, 3965 or 4038.  The information on your pay stub is what will be printed on your W-2.
  • New W-4s should be filled out if you’re filing status or exemption allowances have changed.  Forms are available on the payroll website,  or stop by the payroll office in the Cook Administration Building.
  • If you are currently filing “exempt” on your W-4 (State and/or Federal), you are required to complete a new W-4 no later than February 1, 2013. Forms are available on the payroll website,  or stop by the payroll office.
  • If you would like a copy of your last 2012 pay stub with year-to-date information, please remember to print your December 21, 2012, pay stub no later than January 2, 2013. Year-to-date amounts will only be available on your last pay stub of 2012, until we process the first pay check for 2013.
