****APS payroll staff will be happy to help you fill out withholding tax forms, however; we can not give tax advice to an individual. Please consult an independent professional tax preparer or CPA to address any taxability concerns as each person is unique in their tax liabilities. APS is not responsible for the withholding amounts taken from an employee's check for Federal and State rates. Please ensure that you review your tax withholding amounts each year at the least, every 6 months to be sure. I've provided links on the APS website to IRS and the state agencies to research any questions you might have. ****
Employees should submit the appropriate state and federal forms only if they need to change the withholding amount for calendar year 2013.
If an employee moves between states, the new state tax form will need to be filled out. Payroll does not change withholding until a new tax form is received.
