The NPA has added a new article to its Postdoc resource page:
Overview of Tax Issues for Postdocs. The article provides information and resources on the tax issues facing postdocs. Topics include: tax withholding, reporting fellowship income, filing estimated taxes, FICA, self-employment tax, child and dependent care credits and taxes for international postdocs.
For Postdoctoral FellowsAs a Postdoctoral Fellow, you are not considered an "employee" of the University of Minnesota. You are a "trainee." This means that although you have the OPTION of having income tax withheld from your fellowship payments, it will NOT be automatically withheld unless you make a specific request using this form.
