December 2017 Earnings Reminder

Biweekly earnings for the pay period ending December 16, 2017 will be available in bank accounts or by check on Wednesday, December 27, 2017.  Please remind employees that due to the University and Federal banking holiday on Monday January 1, December monthly earnings will be available in bank accounts or by check on Tuesday, January 2, 2018.

For tax reporting (W-2) purposes, the Internal Revenue Service (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 2017 Form W-2 and earnings paid in January will be reported on the tax year 2018 Form W-2.
