Federal and Iowa W-4's
W-4 forms may be completed online or in the Payroll Office at 1560 Administrative Services Building or in University Human Resources in 3810
Beardshear. The W-4 withholding forms online are in Access Plus under the Employee Tab, W-4 withholding.
You will need a valid ISU email address to compete these forms. If you claim exempt or more than 22 allownaces on the Iowa
W-4 form, you will have to complete a paper form.
If you are a resident of Illinois and would prefer that your state taxes be remitted to Illinois and your earnings be reported to the state of Illinois, you need to fill out the 44-016 "Employee's Statement of Nonresidence in Iowa" form. This form is completed in the Payroll Office.
An employee who fills out the Iowa Nonresidence form still needs to complete an Iowa W-4. If you do not meet the criteria for claiming an exempt status, do not write "exempt" on the Iowa W-4.
If you change your residence from Illinois to another state, you must notify Iowa State University Payroll Department within 10 days of the change.
Individual tax matters are the responsibility of each employee. You should provide Iowa State University with accurate information when establishing your tax status. Federal and Iowa regulations impose penalties for supplying false withholding information.
Employees with tax questions can contact the ISU Payroll Department at 294-6556, the Internal Revenue Service at 1-800-424-1040, or the State of Iowa Department of Revenue at 1-800-367-3388.
