Employees who claimed exempt in 2015: Resubmit Your Tax Exemption Before Feb. 8

Sent to 2015 tax exempt employees on Jan. 20, 2016

Federal and state regulations require any requests for exemptions from Federal and California State withholding be submitted each calendar year. Employees who claimed exempt in 2015 and want to renew the exemption in 2016 must re-enter the exempt status at the At Your Service Online (AYSO) website.

The deadline for entering information via the web is Feb. 8, 2016.

When W-4 information is entered via the AYSO website, a W-4 indicator will be set in the system confirming that a W-4 form has been filed for the exemption for 2016. Tax Compliance and Reporting management suggests that each employee retains a copy of the web confirmation for his or her records.


To continue to claim an exemption from federal and state withholding:

    1. Go to the At Your Service Online website (https://atyourserviceonline.ucop.edu) and log in normally.
    2. Click the “Tax Withholdings” link in the “Income and Taxes” box.
    3. Click the “Fed/CA Exemption” link in the left-side menu.
    4. Follow the instructions on the page to certify and confirm the exemption.

If you have questions regarding instructions or if you have concerns, please contact Faye Shores, Manager of Tax Compliance and Reporting, at fshores@uci.edu.
