New Requirement for Student Workers

Welcome back, Cardinals – we hope you all had a wonderful break and are well rested for a new semester! To start off January, we have a new blog series called “Student Worker Resource of the Month.” Each month, we’ll feature resources and information for our hardworking student workers on campus. 

New this year, the District of Columbia is considering anyone a “DC resident” if they live, or expect to live in DC for minimum of 183 days during the calendar year. This means that effective January 1, 2018 all students working on campus must complete DC, MD or VA tax withholding forms – even if your permanent residence is not in the DC Metro area. So if you are working on campus this semester, and expect to work on campus next fall, you should head on over to the Payroll Office to fill out an updated tax withholding form.

Yes this sounds little confusing, so if you have any questions please contact the Payroll Department 202-319-5512,, 130 Leahy. They are happy to help you make sure you are filling out the correct forms.
