Form W-4 (2019)
Future developments. For the latest
information about any future developments
related to Form W-4, such as legislation
enacted after it was published, go to
www.irs.gov/FormW4.
Purpose. Complete Form W-4 so that your
employer can withhold the correct federal
income tax from your pay. Consider
completing a new Form W-4 each year and
when your personal or financial situation
changes.
Exemption from withholding. You may
claim exemption from withholding for 2019
if both of the following apply.
• For 2018 you had a right to a refund of all
federal income tax withheld because you
had no tax liability, and
• For 2019 you expect a refund of all
federal income tax withheld because you
expect to have no tax liability.
If you’re exempt, complete only lines 1, 2,
3, 4, and 7 and sign the form to validate it.
Your exemption for 2019 expires February
17, 2020. See Pub. 505, Tax Withholding
and Estimated Tax, to learn more about
whether you qualify for exemption from
withholding.
General Instructions
If you aren’t exempt, follow the rest of
these instructions to determine the number
of withholding allowances you should claim
for withholding for 2019 and any additional
amount of tax to have withheld. For regular
wages, withholding must be based on
allowances you claimed and may not be a
flat amount or percentage of wages.
You can also use the calculator at
www.irs.gov/W4App to determine your
tax withholding more accurately. Consider
using this calculator if you have a more
complicated tax situation, such as if you
have a working spouse, more than one job,
or a large amount of nonwage income not
subject to withholding outside of your job.
After your Form W-4 takes effect, you can
also use this calculator to see how the
amount of tax you’re having withheld
compares to your projected total tax for
2019. If you use the calculator, you don’t
need to complete any of the worksheets for
Form W-4.
Note that if you have too much tax
withheld, you will receive a refund when you
file your tax return. If you have too little tax
withheld, you will owe tax when you file your
tax return, and you might owe a penalty.
Filers with multiple jobs or working
spouses. If you have more than one job at
a time, or if you’re married filing jointly and
your spouse is also working, read all of the
instructions including the instructions for
the Two-Earners/Multiple Jobs Worksheet
before beginning.
Nonwage income. If you have a large
amount of nonwage income not subject to
withholding, such as interest or dividends,
consider making estimated tax payments
using Form 1040-ES, Estimated Tax for
Individuals. Otherwise, you might owe
additional tax. Or, you can use the
Deductions, Adjustments, and Additional
Income Worksheet on page 3 or the
calculator at www.irs.gov/W4App to make
sure you have enough tax withheld from
your paycheck. If you have pension or
annuity income, see Pub. 505 or use the
calculator at www.irs.gov/W4App to find
out if you should adjust your withholding
on Form W-4 or W-4P.
Nonresident alien. If you’re a nonresident
alien, see Notice 1392, Supplemental Form
W-4 Instructions for Nonresident Aliens,
before completing this form.
Specific Instructions
Personal Allowances Worksheet
Complete this worksheet on page 3 first to
determine the number of withholding
allowances to claim.
Line C. Head of household please note:
Generally, you may claim head of household
filing status on your tax return only if you’re
unmarried and pay more than 50% of the
costs of keeping up a home for yourself and
a qualifying individual. See Pub. 501 for
more information about filing status.
Line E. Child tax credit. When you file your
tax return, you may be eligible to claim a
child tax credit for each of your eligible
children. To qualify, the child must be under
age 17 as of December 31, must be your
dependent who lives with you for more than
half the year, and must have a valid social
security number. To learn more about this
credit, see Pub. 972, Child Tax Credit. To
reduce the tax withheld from your pay by
taking this credit into account, follow the
instructions on line E of the worksheet. On
the worksheet you will be asked about your
total income. For this purpose, total income
includes all of your wages and other
income, including income earned by a
spouse if you are filing a joint return.
Line F. Credit for other dependents.
When you file your tax return, you may be
eligible to claim a credit for other
dependents for whom a child tax credit
can’t be claimed, such as a qualifying child
who doesn’t meet the age or social
security number requirement for the child
tax credit, or a qualifying relative. To learn
more about this credit, see Pub. 972. To
reduce the tax withheld from your pay by
taking this credit into account, follow the
instructions on line F of the worksheet. On
the worksheet, you will be asked about
your total income. For this purpose, total

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is the landmark federal law, originally
known as the Campus Security Act that requires colleges and universities across the United States to disclose information
about crime on and around their campuses. The directly relates to participation in federal student financial aid programs,
therefore it applies to most institutions of higher education both public and private. It is enforced by the U.S. Department of
Education (DOE).
The “Clery Act” is named in memory of 19 year old Lehigh University freshman Jeanne Ann Clery who was raped and
murdered while asleep in her residence hall room on April 5, 1986. Jeanne’s parents discovered that students hadn’t been
told about 38 violent crimes on the campus in the three years before her murder. They joined with other campus crime
victims and persuaded Congress to enact this law, which was originally known as the “Crime Awareness and Campus Security
Act of 1990”. The law was amended in 1992 to add a requirement that schools afford the victims of campus sexual assault
certain basic rights, and was amended again in 1998 to expand the reporting requirements. The 1998 amendments also
formally named the law in memory of Jeanne Clery.
What is a CSA?
CSA stands for “Campus Security Authority.” CSA’s are usually found in departments responsible for, but not limited to,
student and campus activities, safety/security, discipline, housing, human resources, or judicial proceedings. This
designation also includes any individual who has been specified by ASUPD to receive and report offenses. CSA’s are
responsible for reporting the number of crimes and incidents as described in the Clery Act that occur in their department to
the ASU Police Department. These numbers are then included in the federally-mandated Clery Report, which is distributed
every year by October 1st.
How do I know what to report?
You must report all allegations of crimes that you determine are made in good faith as a statistic that will be included in the
Annual Security Report. Although law enforcement personnel may conclude after further investigation that some allegations
are not substantiated by the facts or the law, you must report information that is a reported to you. Neither a formal police
report nor an investigation is needed in order for a crime report to be included in these statistics. Your responsibility is
to provide as accurate and complete a description as possible of what happened, including the location and whether the
victim or alleged perpetrator was a student.
What crimes must I report?
The Annual Security Report must include statistics on nine types of crime:
Criminal Homicide - (A) Murder and Non- Negligent Manslaughter, and (B) Negligent Manslaughter;
Sex Offenses - (A) Forcible Sex Offenses and (B) Non-Forcible Sex Offenses; Robbery; Aggravated Assault; Burglary;
Motor Vehicle Theft; Arson; Arrests and Disciplinary Referrals for liquor law violations, drug law violations, and illegal
weapons possession; and

Who must report campus crime?
In addition to the Police Department, Campus Security Authorities must report any crimes or incidents that may be crimes that
are reported to them. You are a Campus Security Authority if you fit any the following descriptions: 1. Individuals with Campus
Security responsibility staff assigned to security functions. 2. Designated Individuals any individual or organization identified
on the campus as Clery Coordinator to which crimes must be reported.
If you are a pastoral counselor or professional counselor, use your judgement. When appropriate, you may tell a person you
are counseling about campus procedures for reporting crimes and confidentially for inclusion in the annual disclosure of crime
statistics report even if the person does not want to press charges or participate in an investigation. Procedures for reporting
crimes confidentially must be included in the Annual Safety and Fire Report.
What about timely warnings?
Immediate reporting of crimes allows the police to act in a timely fashion to investigate or otherwise address alleged crimes
that may present a clear danger to the campus community. All you need do is report the crime by calling the police. The ASU
Police Department is responsible for gathering the data for all crimes reported, and soliciting information from local police
agencies concerning crimes reported to them.
A copy of the Annual Safety and Fire Report and Compliance Statement can be found on the ASU website at www.asurams.edu.

Officials with Significant Responsibility for Student and Campus Activities campus officials who manage or otherwise oversee
students and campus activities, for example, staff responsible for campus student housing, a student center, or student extra-
curricular activities; a director of athletics or a team coach; faculty advisors to a student groups; staff responsible for student
discipline; campus judicial staff. Each campus must identify these individuals. The Clery Coordinator is responsible for ensuring
that they are aware of their responsibilities and report periodically. If you are a Campus Security Authority you must report
unless you are one of those whom the regulations define as exempt.
What about confidentiality?
The crime statistics included in the Annual Security Report do not include any information that would identify the victim or the
person accused of committing the crime. Your report to the Clery Coordinator should not include personally identifying
information. Make sure you advise the student that you will not release that information but that you are obligated to report
the alleged criminal conduct.

New Health Insurance Marketplace Coverage
Affordable Care Act
Under the Affordable Care Act, the University System of Georgia, as your employer, is required to provide you this
notice.
If you have questions about the Health Insurance Marketplace, please visit the Federal Health Insurance
Marketplace website at https://www.healthcare.gov/families/. The State of Georgia has opted not to operate a
Health Insurance Marketplace and therefore, individuals in Georgia will use the federal Health Insurance
Marketplace to enroll in coverage.
The University System of Georgia’s Consumer Choice H.S.A. plan meets the Affordability Requirement under the
Affordable Care Act. Therefore, in general, University System of Georgia employees who are eligible for health
insurance will not be eligible for a tax credit in 2014 through the Health Insurance Marketplace (or Exchanges)
created under the Affordable Care Act.
I have read and understand that the University System of Georgia offer’s the Consumer Choice H.S.A. plan, which
meets the affordability requirement under the Affordable Care Act. I also understand that if I opt out of
enrollment into this plan at the time of hire, that I will be ineligible for any tax credit through the Marketplace. I
also forfeit my opportunity to enroll into a healthcare plan with Albany State University and must wait until Open
Enrollment to elect coverage, where coverage will not take effect until January 1
st
of the following year.
