Aspiring Lawyers: What is the answer to this?
« on: June 21, 2011, 04:44:25 PM »
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.

Talk to the payroll people to see if they can explain it. If anyone here tries to give you legal advice, don't take it and run far, far away.

There should be line items on your pay stub detailing the deductions such as federal income tax, state income tax, social security, etc.

Now you have some skin in the game.
