Conduct a Paycheck Check Up
With this year's change in taxes, it's a good time to do a "paycheck checkup." You can use the IRS “Withholding Calculator” to see if you are withholding the correct amount. Helpful information to have on hand when using the calculator includes your completed 2017 tax return and a current paycheck voucher. If you would like to change your tax withholding; fill out a new 2018 W-4 form and return to Personnel Services.
2019 Holiday Calendar and 2018 Vacation Rollover

As you plan for the upcoming holiday season, please remember that the cut off for vacation rollover is December 15 and any balance over 240 hours will be swept at that time. 2019 Holiday Calendar
