February deadline to file withholding tax exemption
If you claimed exemption from withholding tax on your 2020 federal or state tax, you
must file a new W-4 (federal) form and/or NC-4 (state) form for the year 2021 no later
than Feb. 10, 2021, to continue to claim exemption in 2021. Forms submitted after
the Feb. 10 will take effect the following month. Tax status will default to “single”
for federal and “single/zero” for state if a new form is not submitted before the
deadline. You can update federal tax forms in E-Z Arts. Submit withholding changes
to the Payroll Department for the NC-4 form.
