In light of the recent changes to the 2018 IRS code and as employees have filed their 2017 income taxes, questions have come up regarding tax withholdings and whether employees need to update their W-4 forms. Here is some information to consider:

Since you last filed a form W-4 with the University did you:

  • Marry or divorce?
  • Gain or lose a dependent?
  • Change your name?

Or were there major changes to:

  • Your nonwage income (interest, dividends, capital gains, etc.)?
  • Your family wage income (you or your spouse started or ended a job)?
  • Your itemized deductions?
  • Your tax credits?

If you can answer “YES” to any of the questions above, or if you owed extra tax when you filed your last return, you may consider filing a new Form W-4.

With the recent changes to 2018 IRS code, now is a great time to review your W-4 allowances and/or exemptions.  Log on to the Withholding Calculator at https://www.irs.gov/individuals/irs-withholding-calculator to assist you in your review.  A calculator for the State of Missouri can be found here: https://www.taxformcalculator.com/state_tax/missouri.html.

If you would like to make any changes to your W-4, please visit the Human Resources Office in McClain Hall, Room 101, to complete a new form.
