Tax Information

An employee declares his or her tax withholding status for federal and state tax by completing the Employee Action Request Form (.pdf).

For income tax reporting purposes, the tax year is December 1 through November 30.

December's paycheck is issued January 1, so it is considered income for the new tax year.

Paycheck Calculator


The Paycheck Calculator is a spreadsheet created by the State Controller’s Office to help state employees calculate net pay and withholding amounts on a monthly basis. Once you have entered basic information, you can change various fields to see how the changes will affect your net pay. The spreadsheet can also be used to determine how withholding different amounts of deferred compensation or TSA can affect your net income.
