Does anyone know anything about tax law?

I'm trying to figure out how much of my paycheck goes to taxes. My employer fired his payroll company back in July and since then we haven't gotten pay stubs. I took one of my old stubs and figured out the percentage and if my math is correct about 11.35 % of my check is taxes. I'm just really frustrated right now because we're all pretty sure he is shorting us money on our checks. Is it even legal for him not to give us stubs?

  • uh no.....
    granted we all need our jobs these days but you have the right to see your stubs...
    I would talk to HR--if you don't get a good answer, consider going to a superior in the company or reporting them

  • There should be a state agency you can call. But 10-11% is pretty typical.

  • You should be entitled to see how you get paid. 11.35% sounds kinda low to me but it could be your exemptions, etc. If you don't have an HR department - go to who ever is your supervisior and ask to see how they come to your figure on your paycheck.
