their cap and gown fitting. Recent graduates can
join for half price for $18 until five years after they have
graduated. Encourage students you know to participate and help them
stay connected with ASU.
Payroll update regarding IRS
letter to employees
who worked at ASU during the calendar year 2002 should be receiving a
letter from the Internal Revenue Service regarding "unreported"
wages for that year. When employees receive this letter, they should
contact Payroll Services. Payroll Services will then provide a
packet of information for each employee to provide to the IRS. Each
packet will be tailored for each employee based on wages for 2002.
Payroll Services is working diligently to assist ASU employees to
make this process as smooth as possible.
