How was my Federal Withholding calculated?

The federal income tax is a tax on annual earnings for individuals, businesses, and other legal entities. All wages, salaries, cash gifts from employers, business income, tips, gambling income, bonuses, and unemployment benefits are subject to a federal income tax.

For each payroll, federal income tax is calculated based on wages and the answers provided on the W-4 and year to date income, which is then referenced to the tax tables in IRS Publication 15-T. The current tax rates are 0%, 10%, 12%, 22%, 24%, 32%, 35%, or 37%. Again, the percentage chosen is based on the paycheck amount and your W4 answers.

Are some deductions not taxed by federal income tax?

Yes, some examples of pre-tax deductions include 401(k), health insurance, and flexible spending accounts (FSA). To calculate pre-tax deductions, check the Exempt checkboxes, meaning the deduction will be taxed.

What are pre-tax and post-tax deductions?

Pre-tax deductions are deducted before federal/state withholding taxes are imposed. Post-tax deductions are deducted after being taxed. An example of a post-tax deduction is a Roth 401(k).

Why is my Federal Withholding (aka Federal Income Tax) result $0?

Depends on your paycheck’s wages, filing status (single, married filing jointly, etc), and how you answer your W-4 form questions. These answers are referenced to the IRS tax tables.

Usually, this tax equals $0 if the wages are not high enough. Wages need to be higher than the standard deduction. To calculate your federal withholding by hand see these step-by-step instructions and examples.
