Resolution

Katherine Banks has a Federal Filing Status of Married and claims one Exemption.She has no tax-sheltered Deductions.The following pay transactions are included in the pay run:


A Biweekly Hourly Pay Code for $600

A Biweekly Bonus Pay Code for $201.94

A Monthly Commission Pay Code for $214.80


This example uses the Payroll Tax Update for March 2001.


1. All wages are annualized, based on the pay period frequency.


$600 * 26 = $15,600

$201.94 * 26 = $5,250.44

$214.80 * 12 = $2,577.60

Total annualized wages:$23,428.04


2. Subtract the Exemption amount.


$23,428.04 - $2,900 = $20,528.04

This is the amount applied to the Tax tables.


3. Subtract according to the Tax tables then multiply by the Tax Rate.


$20,528.04 - $6,450 = $14,078.04 * 15% = $2,111.71Total Taxes


4.Calculate the withholdingfor each pay frequency.


Biweekly - Divide the total annualized amount for the frequency by the total annualized wages.

($15,600 + $5,250.44) / $23,428.04 = .8899779

Multiply by the total Taxes then divide by the pay period frequency.

.8899779 * $2,111.71 = $1,879.37 / 26 = $72.28


Monthly - Divide the total annualized amount for the frequency by the total annualized wages.

$2,577.60 / $23,428.04 = .110022

Multiply by the total Taxes then divide by the pay period frequency.

.110022 * $2,111.71 = $232.33 / 12 = $19.36


5.Add together the federal withholding for each frequency.

$72.28 + $19.36 = $91.64
