Federal & State Income Tax Withholding

Nonresident Aliens from countries may claim benefit "exempt" status with some limitations. Employees must qualify for the exemptions through the Glacier process. If the qualify, Glacier will provide the required forms at the end of the secession that will then need to printed out, signed and dated and submitted to the payroll office. Treaties can not be applied to payments that have already been made, treaty benefits no applied through payroll may be claimed on your income tax return at the beginning of the next year.

 

Nonresident Aliens for U.S. tax purposes must fill out their K-4 (Kansas Withholding) claiming single with one allowance (regardless of marital status).  The W-4 (Federal Withholding) must be filled out claiming single and writing NRA or Nonresident Alien in the space below Step 4(c).  The marital status on the W-4 and K-4 are for tax purposes only regardless of your true marital status.

 

When an employee goes through the Glacier process, the program will determine if the employee is eligible for more than the one exemption and will create a new W-4 Form. 

 

If you are a Resident Alien for U.S. Tax Purposes and need help filling out the W-4 (Federal Withholding) and K-4 (Kansas Withholding) forms, please contact Legal Services for Students for their assistance. Payroll is not allowed to give advice about how to fill out any tax forms.
