Fraudulent tax returns scam at universities

Posted on July 18, 2014

The FBI’s Cyber Division has been alerted to a scam victimizing college and university employees. After the employees file their tax returns, they later learn tax returns were already filed using their social security numbers. The IRS sent their tax returns to the original fraudulent filers.  There are numerous victims at each university. At this time, the reporting has come in from 4 different states nationwide.  Please alert your campus public safety partners to this scam. Victims can report cyber crime to the FBI at IC3.

If you become aware of a scam of this nature, please report info to Aaron Churness,Task Force Officer, FBI JTTF Minneapolis, 763-569-8431, Aaron.Churness@ic.fbi.gov and to IC3. When reporting to ic3, please include text in the complaint that states, “University Payroll Scam” so they can gather all of these scams into one group. Read the rest of this entry →

Minimum wage increases July 1

Posted on June 27, 2014

The University student minimum wage will be increased to:

• $8.00 on July 1, 2014
• $9.00 on July 1, 2015
• $9.50 on July 1, 2016

As you know, Social Security and Medicare taxes (7.65%) are NOT withheld from on-campus employment earnings as long as students are enrolled in the required number of credit hours and don’t exceed 30 hours of work per week. With the new minimum wage rates, this is equivalent to students earning $8.66 per hour with an off-campus employer during FY 2015, $9.75 per hour with an off-campus employer during FY 2016, and $10.29 per hour with an off-campus employer during FY 2017.
