I got my w-2 today. Yes, late.
Anyway, my boss put in that I only paid $80 into federal tax w/h on my w-2. Now I know this is waaaaaay off. I have (SOME) of my paystubs from between the months of August and December, and between those few months, I only have nine of the paystubs. When I added up the fed. tax deduction on on the paystubs...NINE of 26 paystubs from last year...I paid $72 dollars.
So how could it be that for the other SEVENTEEN paychecks throughout the year, I only paid eight dollars?
My boss' business has slowed down a lot. They get nervous whenever I ask anything about my checks.
Would they benefit if they lied about this on my W-2? Not only was my fed tax w/h lower, but so was everything else. I claim zero on my w-4.
