 Payroll Services has announced the immediate availability of on-line Federal and State (Missouri and Illinois) W-4 forms in Banner Self Service. As part of ongoing process improvement initiatives, this functionality has been added to the Employee Tab under the Tax Forms menu. You now have the control and flexibility of updating your tax filing status and withholding at your fingertips!

To view current withholdings, click on the Federal or State W-4 menu option. By clicking on "UPDATE" you will be navigated to the Update W-4 screen, which includes instructions and "HELP" options for making changes. Upon completion, you must click on the "Certify Changes" button. Your changes take effect on the "Effective Date of Change" indicated on the self-service page.

If you work in the State of Illinois, you will not see the Missouri option, but should see Illinois instead. If you work in Illinois and are not having Illinois withholding deducted, please contact Payroll Services immediately. If you work in a state other than Missouri or Illinois, you will need to continue to complete a paper W-4 for your State withholding. If you are a non-resident alien, authorized to work in the United States, AND from Japan, South Korea, Mexico, or Canada, you will need to contact Nila Mehta ( in Payroll Services and obtain a paper W-4 for completion. Federal regulations require residents of Japan, South Korea, Mexico, or Canada to claim specific levels of tax withholding.

If you need assistance, please contact Payroll Services at with your contact information.
