Federal Income Tax Information

Employees can update federal withholding information via the Employee Profile Dashboard link. Select Employee / Resources / My Earnings & Benefit Elections from the main menu in FlashLine. Then select the "Employee Profile Dashboard" link.  Expand Taxes and select the W-4 Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate and Update in the center of the page.

The federal tax deduction status can be set to Exempt by clicking on the drop down box mid page, selecting Exempt and clicking on the Submit Changes box on the bottom left.  The effective date of the change will automatically populate based upon the next pay period available for updates.

By selecting exemption, the employee certifies that he/she meets the conditions for exemption as detailed in the Instructions and Flow Chart provided by the IRS.
