The Student Employment Office can provide you with the general information necessary to satisfy your filing obligations. Ultimate responsibility for the reporting and payment of taxes, however, lies with you. Harvard staff members are not permitted to give individual tax advice, and we would suggest that you seek professional advice from a qualified accountant or attorney if they encounter complicated tax situations.
Before starting your first student job at Harvard or an off-campus FWSP job you must designate how much the University should withhold from your paycheck for taxes. You can complete this process online through Peoplesoft after you have been hired by your employing department.
Entering Tax Withholding Information in PeopleSoft
- Log in at https://hrapps.cadm.harvard.edu/psp/psftprd/?cmd=login&languageCd=ENG and then click on the Peoplesoft link in the top right corner.
- Navigate to: Self-Service -> Payroll and Compensation -> W-4 Tax Information
- If you're unable to log in to Harvie it means that your employer has not hired you in to the Harvard system yet.
- Unsure about how much to withhold? Use the IRS Withholding Calculator.
