2009 Tax Withholding Information
The Office of Payroll would like to remind employees that the new 2009 withholding tables issued to implement The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA’s Making Work Pay Credit) may place some employees in a slightly “under withheld” situation by year-end. In particular, the following people may be affected:

  • Married couples with both spouses earning wages.
  • Individuals working multiple jobs at one time.
  • Anyone who may be claimed as a dependent on another person’s return.
  • People receiving income from a pension.
  • Individuals receiving Economic Recovery Payments.

The Internal Revenue Service’s online Withholding Calculator has been updated to reflect the impact of the Making Work Pay Credit. Anyone who thinks they may be at risk of under withholding may wish to use the calculator and then file a new W-4 form. For more information, visit Publication 15-T at www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf, or www.irs.gov/individuals/article/0., ID #96196,00.

For more information on filing a new W-4 form, go to http://treasurer.cua.edu/forms.cfm.

Annual University Service Awards Dinner
Around Thanksgiving each year, the university president hosts a dinner, pays special tributes and thanks those university staff and faculty who have provided 10 or 20 years of continuous service to the community.  Those to be honored this year will have been employed full time at the university for 10 or 20 continuous years beginning on Sept. 1 and ending on Aug. 31, of academic years 1988-89 and 1998-99. Invitations to this year’s honorees, along with faculty and staff who have previously celebrated their 20 years of service and continue to serve the university community, will be mailed to their campus addresses in mid-October. If you believe that you qualify to be honored at this year’s dinner and do not receive an invitation by the end of October, contact the president’s office at 202-319-5100.
