The university is required to send regular notices to employees about federal and/or state Earned Income Tax Credit programs. This requirement includes employees who had no tax withheld during the tax year.
As a university with many international ties, CU is responsible for complex payroll and tax withholding rules. Be sure to use the proper hiring process for non-resident employees to avoid adverse tax implications, including new rules for international employees effective in 2024.
There’s more to taxable income than regular salary — awards, tuition assistance, gift cards and even some family benefit costs can be subject to tax. Remember: Any unpaid employee taxes are redirected to the unit — see how to query for these charges.
