Active employees: Adjust your W-4 in the portal
At the start of each year, check your W-4 and make any needed alterations to allowances, tax status and more.
Follow these steps to view and adjust yours:
- Log into my.cu.edu.
- Select the CU Resources tab. (CU System employees will skip this step.)
- Select the CU Resources Home dropdown menu at the top, then select My Info and Pay.
- Click the W-4 tile. The form contains personal information, so you must verify your identity to access it.
Checkup on your paycheck
Prevent an unexpected bill or penalty during tax season: Ensure the right amount of tax is withheld from your pay with the IRS Tax Estimator.
To get started: Gather your most recent paystubs, income tax return and W-2s. If your personal circumstances change during the year, revisit the calculator to ensure withholdings are still correct.

The University of Colorado withholds state taxes from the state in which you perform work. Make sure your withholdings are correct by submitting your state’s W-4.
