How much federal income tax should be withheld on $20,700?Her payroll records show married, claims no exemptions, paid once per month for 12 months, annual salary is $20,700. What should her withholding for federal tax be on her monthly check?
I plugged my tax figures into TurboTax and it said I showed a refund of $1,711.
After I plugged in my wife's tax figures, we went to owing the government money. It was hundreds of dollars! This happened last year when we used turbotax too. Is her employer not taking enough federal withholding out of her check?
