What is Glacier:
It is an international taxation web site used by Payroll.
It determines if the international employee is qualified for extra withholding exemptions and/or tax treaty benefits, as well as provides Payroll with other necessary tax information.
After the Payroll Department has entered a new hire on the system, a detailed notice from Payroll will be sent to the employee, as well as a notice from the Glacier web site, instructing them on how to log onto the site.
At the end of the Glacier session, forms will be generated for the employee to print out, sign and date, and then submit to Payroll. If the employee qualifies for tax treaty benefits, tax treaty forms will also be generated for the employee to print out.
