Payroll and Tax Compliance Office
ENROLL IN DIRECT DEPOSIT!
Payroll and Tax Compliance teams are working hard during the continuously evolving challenges posed by the COVID-19 Pandemic. We are supporting Texas State staff and faculty with frequent communication on important changes and resources that assure continuity of service.
We encourage employees, who have not enrolled in direct deposit, to consider this more convenient process for their paychecks. It also helps us practice social distancing. Please take a moment to read the direct deposit instructions and sign up today.
Additionally, if you pick up your check at Student Business Services, we will begin mailing your check. So for your convenience, please make sure to sign up for direct deposit.
It is important for all our valued employees to take this step now as an extra precaution to limit disruptions in the payroll process. We cannot guarantee that you will receive your pay stub in a timely manner while the university community is operating under a COVID-19 shelter-in-place order or with limited in-person staffing.

Tips for using the IRS Withholding Calculator
- Have your most recent pay stub and federal tax return on hand.
- The calculator’s results are only as accurate as the information you enter.
- The Withholding Calculator does not ask you to provide sensitive personally-identifiable information like your name, Social Security number, address or bank account numbers. The IRS does not save or record the information you enter on the Calculator.
Find the IRS calculator at IRS.gov/withholding.
You should do a paycheck checkup using the IRS’s Withholding Calculator and, if necessary, complete a new W-4 form if you:
- Are a two-income family.
- Have two or more jobs at the same time or only work part of the year.
- Claim credits like the child tax credit.
- Have dependents age 17 or older.
- Itemized deductions in 2018.
- Have high income or a complex tax return.
- Have a large tax refund or tax bill for 2018.
