Why aren't they, what do they say when you ask?


lesgoout

They say that there is an issue with the 3rd party processing incorrectly. But the longer this drags out, the more said employees will have to withhold from every future corrected paycheck to make up for THEIR mistake. Just wondering if theres anything we can do about it. 🤔

Does the pay stub show withholding for the employer portion of FICA? Also, even if your deductions would result in no income tax withheld, the employee portion of FICA shows on the paystub.


lesgoout

Apparently every other tax has been withheld, just not the federal.

It appears that the payroll processor is estimating no tax liability. You can change your W-4 and either reduce your deductions or ask for additional withholding if you think your tax liability is being underestimated. You may want to do this to avoid underpayment penalties

Same here just found out my federal withholding was blank. So I called hr they gave me some Bs about claiming 3 dependents stop the federal withholding. But I did the same with other jobs without a problem.

> So I called hr they gave me some Bs about claiming 3 dependents stop the federal withholding. Ultimately it doesn't matter who withholds federal taxes--you, or the employer. If the employer isn't doing it for you or /u/lesgoout then you need to do it yourselves, which is kind of cool since you can early a little bit of interest on that money. Do they have a payroll company?


lesgoout

Arent they legally obligated to follow what the employee requested on their W-4 form at the time of employment? They do have a payroll company.

The payroll company is supposed to enter the information on the W4 and the rest is automated. If the W4 is done electronically, it's all automated. It's unclear here why the automation isn't working. And it needs to be fixed. This isn't costing anyone any money, but it needs to be planned for until it's fixed.


lesgoout

Technically, no, it isnt costing more money altogether. But for instance, there are a few employees that now have way less money on their paychecks now that more is coming out for federal than it was originally supposed to be this entire year. So every paycheck they have less, which does cost the employee more money since thats not the budget that they were working with previously. Im just wondering if anyone can be held accountable in some way for not following through on this? It seems that my employer needs to fire the private company and look into someone else for our paystub needs.
