A Payroll Office Reminder: Please Consider Reviewing Your Tax Withholdings

If you have not done so already, the Payroll office encourages everyone to take a moment to review your current federal tax withholdings carefully to determine if you should make any changes in response to changes in your tax situation that may have been brought on by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The Act resulted in many changes to tax brackets and deductions and is effective for calendar year 2018.

The IRS has recently issued the new 2018 W-4 form, which includes a worksheet and a link to the new IRS withholding calculator. The IRS withholding calculator is a handy tool to help guide you. However, if you need additional assistance please contact the Payroll office at (626) 395-8668 to make an appointment, and someone will be happy to assist you.

If you wish to make changes immediately, please print the 2018 Form W-4 and deliver to the Payroll office at Keith Spalding Building, 1200 E California Blvd, 2nd Floor, or fax to (626) 628-3882. Please do not send W-4 forms via email, for security purposes.

Banking Institution Change

Caltech has recently moved its banking activities from Bank of America to J. P. Morgan Chase. All payments generated through Payroll Services are now paid through the new JPMorgan bank account.

This change should have little impact on you, but we want to make you aware of a few key points to keep in mind: 

  • Employees receiving hard-copy check payments will recognize the JPMorgan Chase bank change at the top of the check. 
  • All hard-copy checks can be deposited into the individual employee's bank account, cashed at any Caltech Credit Union branch (if the employee is a Credit Union member), or at the local JPMorgan Chase branch office free of charge:  860 E Colorado Blvd Pasadena, CA 91101 (626) 795-5177 
  • Employees receiving automated deposit payments from the Institute will see them recorded into the same bank account as before under the Bank of America process. 
  • You may continue utilizing the on-site Caltech Credit Union ATM in the same manner.

Please direct any payroll related banking transition questions to our Director of Payroll, Maggie Ory. She can be reached at (626) 395-2626 or Mory@caltech.edu.

Caltech Facilities is conducting a survey regarding commuting behavior and the use of plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles on campus to help inform Institute planning for future parking and infrastructure needs.  The anonymous survey is quick to complete (5-10 minutes) and your feedback will be an essential component of the planning process.  Responses from all vehicle users, regardless of the type of car you drive, are requested.   Survey respondents will be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card.

If you have any additional questions or comments regarding electric vehicle charging infrastructure at Caltech, or have difficulty accessing or completing the survey, please contact us at sustainability@caltech.edu.  For more information about commuter services and alternative transportation programs at Caltech, please visit: www.parking.caltech.edu/Transportation
