December Earnings Reminder

Biweekly earnings for the pay period ending December 17, 2016 will be available in bank accounts or by check on Wednesday, December 28, 2016. Please remind employees that due to the UC and Federal banking holiday on Monday January 2nd, December monthly earnings will be available in bank accounts or by check on Tuesday, January 3, 2017.

For tax reporting (W-2) purposes, the IRS requires that wages be reported in the tax year when they are paid rather than the year they are earned. As a result, earnings paid in December will be reported on the tax year 2016 W-2 and earnings paid in January will be reported on the tax year 2017 W-2.
