Mileage Reimbursement Rate for 2020

The mileage reimbursement rate for all agencies for calendar year 2020 will be equal to the IRS rate for 2020. That rate has not yet been announced by the IRS and is typically announced in mid-December. The rate will be posted to the OMES website (Services/Central Accounting and Reporting/Services/Travel/Resources) as soon as it is available. A notice will also be sent via GovDelivery.

2020 IRS Form W-4

The IRS has released the final version of the 2020 Form W-4. The form includes major revisions including:

  • Elimination of withholding allowances.
  • Revised marital status elections.
  • Opportunity to include other income or adjustments.
  • Modification for claiming exemptions from withholding.

All new employees that will first receive wages in 2020 are required to complete the 2020 Form W-4. Current employees are not required to complete a new Form W-4 for 2020 unless they want to adjust their withholding for paychecks dated after 2019. The HCM system will calculate federal income tax withholding based on the form on file, whether that is a previous version or the new form.

Agencies should inform both the Payroll and Human Resources departments and any others involved in the hiring process so that they are aware of the change. Hiring and onboarding procedures may need to be adjusted. Employees may need additional time, more privacy because of the information requested or they might need to take the Form W-4 home to complete.

2020 IRS Form W-4 Training

OMES CAR will offer training opportunities on Dec. 16, 2019, for IRS Form W-4 Training.

The training is for human resource and payroll professionals and will help in understanding the changes to the 2020 IRS Form W-4. All steps on the form will be discussed and the worksheets both on the form instructions and in IRS Pub 15-T will be examined. The IRS Tax Withholding Estimator will be demonstrated and a few withholding scenarios will be presented to show the calculation differences between the 2019 and 2020 forms. There will be a discussion of tax advice versus assistance for personnel to communicate these major changes to employees without giving tax advice. FAQs regarding the new IRS Form W-4 will be reviewed along with what makes the form invalid.

Please visit the State of Oklahoma Learn Center to enroll in the IRS Form W-4 Training.

Training material will be available before the class. You will need to print your own material for the training class. As an alternative, please feel free to bring electronic devices with materials.

Agency Payroll Corrections – Year-End Review

Agencies should review all employee corrections for the year to ensure they have been processed by OMES/CAR as requested. This includes cancellation of payroll warrants, overpayment refund requests, Social Security number changes and any other requests that affect W-2 reporting. For any requests identified as not yet processed, please contact Jean Hayes or Lisa Raihl for a status update.

Agencies should review all outstanding employee overpayments and collect required amounts from employees. After collection, please submit OMES Form 94P as applicable. Agencies will be entitled to receive refunds for all forms submitted by Friday, Dec. 20, 2019. After this date, refunds cannot be returned to the agencies; however, agencies are still required to submit the form after this date for employee wage corrections. Corrections due to overpayments will be posted to the employee’s 2019 W-2 for requests submitted through Monday, Jan. 6, 2020. Any corrections submitted after Jan. 6 will require a corrected W-2 or W-2C as applicable.

>> Back to Top

Taxable Fringe Benefits

Any taxable fringe benefits not yet recorded and reported this year must be included in the December payroll. The payroll system has been structured to accommodate the reporting of non-cash, taxable fringe benefits. Of specific concern to state employees, the following benefits should be reviewed to determine if W-2 wage adjustments are necessary:

  • Employee use of state vehicles.
  • Maintenance, car and housing allowances.
  • Additional non-cash benefits.

Reporting of these benefits is required by state and federal law, and it is the responsibility of the individual agency to ensure compliance. If the item is not run through the payroll system in the current year, the employer may deduct the taxes associated with the wage item on a following paycheck in the next year as a miscellaneous deduction. The state is responsible for depositing the taxes. Any taxes associated with items not run through the payroll system must be sent to OMES in a timely manner so the tax deposits can be made and the items posted to the employee’s earnings record.

Please refer to the W-2 instructions and Publication 15A, Employer’s Supplemental Tax Guide, for additional information. Also, refer to OMES Human Capital Management rules to determine whether these payments are a valid pay plan for a particular agency.

Employee Overpayments Collected After Year End

The collection of any outstanding overpayments is especially important at year end. Employees who owe any monies back to the agency must reimburse the agency by Dec. 31 if they want to repay only the net amount. Employee overpayments that are collected in the next calendar year are to be repaid at the gross overpayment amount in accordance with Internal Revenue Service regulations.

In addition, employees who do not reimburse the overpayment in the current year are subject to taxes on the overpaid amount and later, in the year the overpayment is reimbursed, the employee may be entitled to take a deduction or credit on their current year tax form and should discuss with their tax advisor.

For example, John Deere was overpaid in September 2019 by $1,000 regular wages. This was discovered in October and the agency calculated what the correct payroll should have been. The net check difference is $743.50. If John reimburses the overpayment before the end of the year (by personal check or miscellaneous deduction), he would pay $743.50 and his W-2 will correctly reflect his pay reduced by the reimbursement. If he reimburses the agency after year-end, he must pay $1,000, and his 2019 W-2 would include the $1,000 overpayment in taxable wages. 

In accordance with 74 O.S. § 840-2.19, the agency must send a notice to the employee within 10 days of identifying an overpayment. The employee then has 30 days to respond to this notification. Employees have several options for repaying overpaid payroll amounts: 

  • Reduction of annual leave (for the gross overpaid).
  • Reduction of current gross salary (for the gross overpaid during the same calendar year) in a lump sum or installments over a term not to exceed the term in which the overpayment(s) occurred.
  • Lump-sum cash repayment.
  • Miscellaneous payroll deduction (for the net overpaid during the same calendar year) in a lump sum or installments over a term not to exceed the term in which the overpayment(s) occurred.
  • Any combination of the above options. 

For amounts reimbursed in subsequent years, the applicable W-2, corrected W-2, or W-2C for the year of the overpayment will only reflect a change in Social Security and Medicare wages and taxes. Since the employee received and had use of the funds during the year of overpayment, the amount is taxable for federal and state purposes. Federal and state taxable wages or income taxes withheld will not be changed.

Agency Address Verification

Please verify the correct agency address is being used on the Oracle/PeopleSoft HCM system. The agency address can be found on the Employee’s Earnings Statement. If the address is not correct for the agency, it must be updated before year-end processing of tax forms. Please contact the OMES Service Desk at 405-521-2444 or [email protected] to have the agency’s address updated in the HCM system.

 >> Back to Top

State HCM System Use of Addresses on W-2s

As a reminder, in the Oracle/PeopleSoft HCM system, the W-2 process loads the employee’s mailing address for IRS Form W-2 reporting. If there is no value in the mailing address field, then the employee’s home address will be used on the W-2. If there is a value in the mailing address field that is not to be used on the Form W-2, it must be updated or inactivated.

 >> Back to Top

State HCM System Use of Addresses on 1095-C, ACA Reporting Form

The 1095-C form process in the Oracle/PeopleSoft HCM system has been set to load the employee’s mailing address just as the W-2 process does. If there is no value in the mailing address field, then the employee’s home address will be used on the 1095-C form. If there is a value in the mailing address field that is not to be used on the 1095-C form, it must be updated or inactivated.

PeopleSoft MailDrop for Year-end Processing

Oracle/PeopleSoft HCM system employee W-2s and 1095-C forms are processed and printed in mail drop order. Please ensure this field is properly used for employees. The forms will print in the same order as checks and advices sort, which is based on each agency’s needs.

>> Back to Top


  • State agency W-2 forms will be printed from the PeopleSoft HCM System. The format for the W-2 forms will be the same as that used last year. Envelopes that fit the 2018 PeopleSoft W-2 forms should fit the 2019 W-2 forms. 
  • The format for the 1099 MISC forms is the same as last year. The forms will have three sections with the top third and the middle third of the page containing the two copies of the form. The bottom third of the page will contain the mailing addresses. Instructions will print on the back of the form. Standard No. 9 or No. 10 envelopes with left windows should work. 

Sample printed forms of the PeopleSoft W-2 and 1099 MISC can be provided if requested. Please contact Jean Hayes at 405-522-6300 or [email protected], or Alicia Reel at 405-522-9479 or [email protected]

Backup Withholding

Agencies that have collected backup withholding on miscellaneous claims must submit payment to be received by OMES prior to Dec. 30, 2019. Please make interagency wires payable to the State Contribution Fund (Vendor 0000000467, ADDR # 002, LOC # 0002). After processing payment, please send details of the payment to Jean Hayes or Lisa Raihl at [email protected] or [email protected].

Correcting W-2s

Corrected W-2 forms must be delivered to OMES by Jan. 27, 2020, for the corrections to be in the submission file. The IRS has accelerated the requirements for reporting certain year-end information. The due date for submission of form W-2 information to the IRS is Jan. 31, 2020.

Please send the original W-2, a copy of the corrected form and a memo explaining why the correction is needed. If the correction is due to a statutory canceled warrant which is not to be replaced, please also send a letter asking that the warrant not be replaced. Note: Because a warrant has been canceled by statute is not a reason for such a W-2 correction. If it was a valid payroll payment, the employee is still entitled to a replacement warrant; therefore, the W-2 reporting is proper.

Federal Income Tax Withholding

Exempt from withholding: An employee who certified to his or her employer on the 2019 Form W-4 that the employee had no income tax liability for 2018 and anticipated no income tax liability for 2019 was entitled to an exemption from withholding for 2019. This exemption expires on Feb. 17, 2020, and must be renewed if conditions remain the same. To claim exempt status, the employee must complete only steps 1 and 5. If an exempt W-4 has any information in steps 2 through 4, the form is invalid. If you receive an exempt W-4 after Feb. 17, 2020, do not process a tax refund to the employee or submit a request to OMES. They will not be processed. If you receive an exempt W-4 after Feb. 17, 2020, the W-4 will take effect on the next pay cycle; per IRS regulations it is not retroactive to the beginning of the year.

Lock-in letter: If you received a Letter 2800C, WHC Lock-in Letter to Employer (lock-in letter), before Jan. 1, 2020, then for 2020 continue to follow the instructions in the lock-in letter and use the withholding methods in Pub 15-T for an employee with a pre-2020 W-4 until notified by the IRS of any changes or release or the employee gives you a new Form W-4 that results in more withholding than the amount withheld under the lock-in letter. For lock-in letters received that will go into effect in 2020, the IRS will provide the permitted filing status and withholding instructions. Follow all instructions in the letter to provide the employee their copy and begin withholding based on the date specified in the notice.

Social Security Administration Notification of Name/SSN Errors

The Social Security Administration has started mailing educational correspondence to employers that submit Forms W-2 containing employee names and Social Security numbers that do not match SSA’s records. This letter is to provide employers with resources to help ensure accurate year-end reporting. Employers may also receive letters if there are any name/SSN errors on W-2 reporting. The letters come directly to OMES. Agencies will be notified of any name/SSN errors on the report that applies to the agency.

>> Back to Top

Internal Revenue Service Information Reporting Penalties

Along with the SSA letters discussed in the article above, IRS information reporting penalties may apply for failure to file and failure to furnish correct information returns. A penalty for failure to file correct information returns can be up to $270 per form, indexed annually. A penalty for failure to furnish a correct information return could also apply to the same error if an employer furnished an incorrect form to an employee and also failed to file a correct Form W-2. If both penalties are assessed, the amount could be as much as $540 per Form W-2. In addition, the penalty applies to the ACA reporting Form 1095-C. For one employee with an incorrect Name/SSN combination who receives both a W-2 and a 1095-C, the total penalty could be as much as $1,080. IRS enforcement of accuracy-related penalties is evolving and penalty assessment may be increasing.

OMES verifies employee name and SSN combinations several times throughout the year through the SSA website. Agencies with mismatched results are notified and are required to provide the necessary changes to ensure year-end reporting is correct. This process helps to ensure accurate reporting and reduces the risk of information reporting penalties.

Employee Name and Social Security Number Entries in HCM

When entering a new employee’s name and Social Security number or updating a current employee’s name, please verify the name and SSN being entered is exactly as it appears on the employee’s Social Security card. This is critical in reporting not only the W-2 wages at year end but the Affordable Care Act required health offer/coverage information. If the name and SSN do not match the Social Security Administration records, the employee’s wages may not be credited to their Social Security account. Additionally, if the name and SSN do not match, the employee may not be reported correctly for ACA purposes which could result in an IRS letter to the employee for possible lack of health coverage or an IRS letter to the agency for not offering coverage.

Beginning Sept. 8, 2007, the Social Security Administration updated the Social Security card. The number holder’s name will always be printed on two lines with the last name printed directly below the first and middle names. If you receive a prior version from an employee and are unsure, please ask the employee to verify the first, middle and last names.

Additionally, compound names do not need to be hyphenated. If an employee provides a name with an apparent compound or multiple last names, ask the employee which name is the beginning of the last name and which (if any) is the middle name.

Please update the employee’s name in the HCM system as instructed in the COR301 Part II manual beginning on page 42 (Navigation: Workforce Administration > Personal Information > Modify a Person). You may enter the name that the employee currently uses as their paycheck name if desired so that their paycheck will continue to reflect the same name as in the past, but the employee record and W-2 information should match the Social Security card.

Additionally, the New Year's holiday is Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2020. With these dates in mind, please adjust your payroll processing schedules as needed. All payroll documents must be received five business days prior to the actual pay date to ensure adequate time for audit and processing.

Transparency Reporting - Reminders

Transparency (OpenBooks) files are due no later than the fifth business day of the following month. Files must be sent timely in order to comply with monthly FTE reporting as well as statutory requirements for posting the data to the website. The following are specific field data reminders:

  • Jobcode – This must be a valid OMES job code. Contact OMES HCM Classification and Compensation at 405-521-2177 for assistance with job codes.
  • Hours – This must be an employee’s accurate hours. The hours reported here will also be used for FTE reporting, along with the pay frequency entered in the file.
  • Warrant Number – The warrant number must contain the required leading 2. This is the actual warrant number processed through the state’s financial system and paid through the Treasurer’s Office.

Agencies that Collect Banking Information (Including Higher Education)

NACHA is a governing body that sets rules for ACH transactions. A newly released NACHA rule requires that banking information housed by originators of electronic payments be rendered unreadable when stored at rest. OMES and the Treasurer’s Office are in the process of determining the scope of this issue. If your agency or institution collects banking information for payments of any kind, please notify the state comptroller at [email protected] or 405-521-6162.

ACA Reporting Reminders for 2019

Pursuant to Internal Revenue Code Section 6056 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, as a large employer we are required to file an informational return with the IRS related to the offer of health coverage to employees. Additionally, we must provide employees with a statement that includes the information we will be providing in our IRS filing. This Employee Statement is the IRS Form 1095-C which includes information about health insurance coverage offered to state employees, their spouse and dependent(s).

For employees who have worked in multiple agencies during the year, only one 1095-C form will be produced. This combined 1095-C form includes information related to the employee across multiple agencies. The agency on record as the primary agency as of Dec. 31 received the 1095-C to distribute.

NOTE: The information to complete the 1095-C form is extracted from the ACA Employee Eligibility page in the HCM system. Please ensure the data on this page correctly reflects an employee’s status for the entire calendar year. Only employees eligible for an offer of health coverage or those in a stability period with an offer of coverage will receive a 1095-C form for 2019. Not all employees will receive a 1095-C form.

The 1095-C forms will be provided to agencies on a CD. It is important that agencies print these documents and provide a copy to eligible employees. The IRS mandates this document be provided to employees by the end of January of the following year.

In addition to the 1095-C form, state agency employees enrolled in health coverage will receive a 1095-B form from their insurance carrier. The 1095-B form provides information about who was covered and the periods of coverage.

For questions related to ACA reporting, please contact Rena’ Bigby, director of Classification and Compensation – 405-521-6109; [email protected].

Correcting Form 1095-C

Corrections for Form 1095-C must be submitted to OMES HCM by Feb. 28, 2020. Please send the original form, a copy of the corrected form and a memo explaining why the correction is needed. Please send corrections to Rena’ Bigby, director of Classification and Compensation – 405-521-6109; [email protected].

2019 – 1099 Report

The year end 1099 Report is available for each agency to run in the PeopleSoft Financials system any time. The path for this report is: Accounts Payable, Reports, Payments, Misc Tax Information Report. Make sure the dates include 01/01/2019-12/31/2019. This report will reflect the 1099 data from PeopleSoft vouchers. Be advised that any vendor with a 1099 Flag of N on the report will Not receive a 1099 unless they are paid using a medical or legal account code. If the vendor should be issued a 1099, please let OMES know so we can change the 1099 Flag to Y. The final report should be processed by agencies no later than Jan. 3, 2020, or preferably by Dec. 31, 2019. All corrections must be returned to Beth Brox at OMES by Jan. 6, 2020.

>> Back to Top

1099 File Format – Outside Agencies

Any agency needing to submit an additional file for 1099M reporting should use the format listed in the CAR forms page link below. Instructions are provided in a separate link as well as a listing of 1099M reportable account codes. Due to the sensitive nature of the data, please submit your file by a password protected email to [email protected]. It is recommended that these agencies submit a test file by Dec. 15, 2019, to have a Name and TIN Match done with the IRS. Final information is due Jan. 6, 2020.

The file instructions and format can be found on the CAR forms page of the OMES website:

  • 1099 Detail File Format – Outside Agencies. 
  • 1099 Instructions – Detail File Format.

2019 – IRS Tax Filing Deadline – Reminder

Tax reporting for 2019 will be at an accelerated pace due to new IRS regulations. 1099s and W2s will be distributed Jan. 21-23, 2020. Any corrections must be returned by Jan. 27, 2020, so they can be entered in the file which is due to be filed with the IRS by Jan. 31, 2020. Any corrections needed after this date should still be sent to OMES for us to notify the IRS. This will ensure our reporting is as accurate and complete as possible.

NOTE: This does not apply to Higher Ed Institutions since they do their own 1099 reporting.

Reminder – Proper Form for Warrant Cancellations

Some agencies are confused between use of the following two forms since both OMES and OST receive them inappropriately. One form is for OMES cancellation action and the other is for the State Treasurer’s office use.

OMES Form MWC – Miscellaneous Warrant Cancellation should be used for submission (with warrant) directly to OMES when agency wishes to have a warrant that was issued in error to be cancelled and where warrant was issued through the PeopleSoft accounts payable system. This is for most warrants normally used in state business activities.

Stop Payment/Hard Cancel Request is used when an agency needs to cancel a check issued from an Agency Special Account (ASA), but not accounts setup as 7XX type funds. This would also include other checks such as ones issued by agencies as 340 Fund expenses.

If you are unsure of the proper form to use we suggest you email us at [email protected] and describe the type of payment.

FY 2018 Appropriations Lapse Dates per House Bill 1020XX

Appropriations made by House Bill 1020XX have a lapse date of Aug. 21, 2020. This occurs due to the constitutional provision that, absent any other legislative direction, allows for 30-month appropriations. The OMES Budget division executes this as 30 months from the date an appropriation bill passes the second house of the Legislature. Due to the special session that occurred to pass the FY 2018 budget, specifically HB 1020XX, these appropriations have the later lapse date of Aug. 21, 2020. Lapse dates will be updated this month to reflect the correct lapse dates. As the update is a manual process, applicable budgets that reflect less than $2 available allotment will not be updated. If you have questions, please contact your budget analyst.

TO DO: FY 2018 Appropriations Carryover

Please remember to carry over any FY 2018 appropriations that are not going to be used on FY 2018 expenditures. Note that for an expenditure to be included in the FY 2018 budget, that expenditure needs to be encumbered as of June 30, 2018. FY 2018 appropriations can be carried forward to the FY 2019 budget to pay for FY 2019 expenses if those items were encumbered as of June 30, 2019. Otherwise, the FY 2018 appropriation needs to be carried forward to the FY 2020 budget. Contact your budget analyst with questions.
