A completed withholding allowance certificate will let your employer know how much federal income tax should be withheld from your pay.

Exempt Status

Please note that tax law requires a new Form W-4 and K-4 to be filed each year by those employees who claim exempt, because exempt status expires February 15 each year. A new Form W-4 and K-4 must be submitted to Human Resources as soon as possible, but no later than January 30, of each year. If a new Form W-4 is not received, the employee’s tax status will be changed to Single with Zero exemptions per IRS regulations, on the first February paycheck. For employees working in multiple departments, only one W-4 and K-4 Exempt Renewal is needed.

Employees may be eligible for the withholding tax exempt status if the following criteria are met:
  1. The employee incurred no federal income tax liability for the previous year; and,
  2. The employee anticipates no federal income tax liability to be incurred for this year
