We haven't received any tax forms indicating bonus or whatever from employer.

Your husband is putting some money in Retirement accounts, possible medical flex accounts, or other types of accounts that are reducing the wages being taxed (box 1 of the W-2). 

Look at the W-2, and in box 12 is where most of these should be.  The big one is probably a code "D" a 401K plan, which is excellent to do, as it saves for retirement and also reduces taxes paid now.  

Post a comment if there is a code you are not sure about.  Thank you.
