UC W-4 & DE 4 Tax Withholding Allowance Certificate
The University of California W-4/DE 4 form is used to determine an employee’s personal income tax withholding status so that the appropriate federal and state taxes can be withheld from the employee’s pay.
The following definitions apply to the table below and refer to an individual's status for tax purposes.
- Residents include U.S. citizens, permanent residents, refugees, asylees and foreign nationals who meet the substantial presence test.
- Nonresidents are individuals who are not U.S. citizens, and who do not meet either the green card test or the substantial presence test.
