I am currently a student at The Ohio State University, and have been getting an excessive amount of money removed from my paychecks due to taxes. My check was 425, and I got 50$ removed from it which is around 12 %. I was wondering what the employment tax payroll laws were in Ohio? I know in New Jersey, for a similar company I worked for, my paychecks were tax free since I made under $10,000. I also DO NOT pay taxes in Ohio.
