Federal Tax Withholding Changes in Effect
Most UW–Madison employees will see a change in their federal income tax withholding on their paychecks as a result of the 2017 Federal Tax Reform bill, which was passed in December 2017. The change was implemented on the February 1, 2018, paycheck for University Staff, who are paid bi-weekly, and for Faculty, Academic Staff, and Limited Appointees, who are paid monthly. To see your federal withholding amount, log into MyUW and launch the Payroll Information module. You can review recent earnings statements to see how your federal withholding amount has changed.
