Tax Exempt Deadlines
Students who are currently claiming exempt from Maryland State and/or Federal tax withholding for their campus job and wish to continue exempt status in 2020, must re-file new Tax Exempt Withholding Forms on or before February 15th. This also applies to students who do not currently claim exempt, but wish to do so. Please note, exempt status last for only one calendar year (January – December).
To file new tax withholding forms, you must log into myJHU, click “HR,” then select “ESS” (Employee Self-Service). Once in ESS, click “Payroll Information,” then “Federal and State Withholding.” From here, select “Review” and then “Save” the record.
- If you fail to hit “Save,” your change will not go into effect. You must do this for both federal and state if you wish to be exempt for both. PDF Document: Step-by-step instructions (PDF).
