so I am super stumped on filing a W-4S for sick leave tax withholding. I have my gross income of 83,907 and I’m filing single. I have a tax of 11,227. I’m stuck on the part about the amount of sick leave payments. I expect to be out for a month, so to me, I get paid every other week meaning 2 payments for my sick leave. However, I feel like withholding close to 6k in taxes seems like it’s too much. My current tax withholding is about $400. Should I just write down my current tax withholding for the form or did I do something wrong with the math?
All you have to do is enter an amount on line highlighted in yellow for the payer and skip the worksheet if you wish (it is not required to be filled in hense the term "worksheet". If the sick pay is about the same as your usual wages then just enter the same federal withholding if you wish.
