Paycheck Deductions

Mandatory deductions made from the employee wages include federal and state income tax, Social Security contributions, Medicare, and garnishments for child support or federal, state, county, or municipal levies.

A Human Resources staff member must approve college benefit deductions. Other deductions are administered by Business Services.

You should complete a new tax withholding form at Business Services upon:

  • Change in number of exemptions
  • Reaching age 65 (if an additional exemption is desired)
  • Change in marital status
  • Failure to qualify for claiming tax exempt status (W-4E or NC-4E) under federal and/or state regulations (you must re-file each year)
