State of Kansas Withholding Tax Changes
The Kansas Dept of Revenue has released the updated State Withholding Tax Tables, which are to be used in computing state tax withholding for wages paid beginning Jan 1, 2017. The new tax rates will also be used in calculating paychecks issued on or after July 1, 2017.
Please note: The Gross to Net Calculation Tool has now been updated to reflect the new KS tax rates. You can find this tool by clicking the Employee Resources button.
Vacation Time Reminder
Employees earn a maximum of 176 vacation hours each fiscal year. Many employees are approaching their maximum by the end of the 22nd payroll period (3/26/17-4/8/2017).
8 hours earned each payroll period X 22 payroll periods = 176 hours
Once the 176 hour maximum is earned for the 2017, the employee will not earn any additional vacation until the completion of the first payroll period of the new 2018 fiscal year (6/18/2017-7/1/2017).
You can find more information on vacation leave on the Human Resources website.
