Note: Direct deposit of student pay is required as a condition of employment. Your money will be deposited in your bank account(s) on the appropriate payday.
If you expect to earn less than $12,000 during the 2015 calendar year, you can apply for an exemption from this Local Services Tax (LST). This tax will take effect on your first paycheck of 2015. The LST Exemption Certificate can be completed anytime throughout the year. However, any taxes already deducted will not be refunded by the university. Contact your Student Payroll Office for further information.
