Discretionary Spending Restrictions

Due to changes in tax laws resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in December 2017, the University of Oklahoma has implemented new policies and procedures for payment of employee moving expenses.  Under the new law, all moving expenses, whether reimbursed directly to an employee or paid to a vendor on behalf of an individual, are includable in the employee’s gross income.  These payments will be reported on the employee’s W-2 and be subject to federal and state income tax and FICA withholding. 

For payments directly to individuals, departments should complete the new University of Oklahoma – Employee Moving Expense Payment form (available on the Financial Services website) and submit the completed form to Payroll and Employee Services.  For payments to third party vendors, departments should complete the new Moving Expense Vendor Payment Request form in CrimsonCorner.

For additional information, please refer to the following documents available on the Financial Services website. Moving Expenses Policy and Moving Expenses Procedures here.

If you have questions regarding the new policy and procedures, please e-mail Financial Services at fss@ou.edu.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 affects the taxability of employee parking. Currently, payroll withholding for employee parking is available to employees as a “Before-Tax Deduction”. However, as a result of the new tax act, we must transition all withholding for employee parking to an “After-Tax Deduction”.  Effective July 1, 2018, employee parking will only be deducted from employee paychecks on an After-Tax basis. For hourly employees, this change will first occur for payroll paid on July 6, 2018.  For monthly employees, this change will first occur for payroll paid on July 31, 2018.  Because withholding for employee parking will be deducted After-Tax rather than Before-Tax, employees may notice a reduction in their net pay.   

To determine how this change will impact your take home pay, you may sign into PeopleSoft Self-Service and use the Paycheck Modeler.  If you have questions about this change, please contact Financial Services at fss@ou.edu or Payroll and Employee Services at payroll@ou.edu.
