Can an employer deduct tips out of your paycheck legally?
No. Your employer can neither take your tips (or any part of them), nor deduct money from your wages because of the tips you earn. Furthermore, your employer cannot credit your tips against the money the employer owes you. Labor Code Section 351

The W-4 FORM Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate Go to the IRS gov website and use the search box for W-4
it is approxamately 31%
The specific amount withheld should be shown on your payment stub or direct deposit receipt, and is labeled FICA. A total of 7.65% of your pre-tax income (6.2% for Social Se…curity and 1.45% for Medicare Hospital benefits) is withheld from each paycheck until you reach the current earnings cap of $106,800. There is no earnings cap for the 1.45% Medicare Hospitalization contribution, so that continues to be withheld regardless of your income. Your employer pays a matching amount from company funds, bringing the total contribution on your behalf to 15.3% of the first $106,800 of salary. If you earn less than the maximum, you can easily calculate your total annual contribution by multilplying your base salary x .0765. For example: A person who earns $35,000 in 2010 will contribute $2,677.50 toward future retirement benefits, and his or her company would match that contribution for a total of $5,355.

Answer It refers to the garnishment of wages by a creditor for repayment of a debt. States inact their own garnishment laws, the maximum amount allowed… by federal law is 25% of disposable income the first $154.50 of weekly wages are totally exempt. A garnishment order for debt can often be modified if "undue hardship" can be proven. These terms DO NOT apply to child support and in some cases spousal maintenance.
Is it legal for an employer to charge a fee for taking court ordered child support deductions out of your check?
Answer I'm sure it's LEGAL, but I don't know if I would like my employer for doing that. On the other hand, most employers do not appreciate the extra effort involved i…n dealing with court orderd attachments to wages. By not taking care of your obligations you have placed an additional burden on your employer, they're just letting you know that they aren't happy about it. Answer Having child support deducted from an employee's wages can be a voluntary action or one due to garnishment proceedings. Generally in either sitiuation the employer can charge an amount specified by the court, the reason being to offset administration costs. Answer It is illegal for your employer to charge a fee for taking a court order on child support and deductions off your pay check because they are not allow to in the court of law. Only the court can do that off your bank acount.
Probably the OASDI (FICA) (social security and medicare taxes) all mean the same tax. The maximum social security contribution limit is 6621 No limit on the amount of earn…ed income that is subject to the medicare tax rate of 1.45% of gross income. If you are a self employed taxpayer then you are responsible for all of your own FICA self employment taxes of 15.3% plus any income taxes on your net profit from your business operation at your marginal tax rate. For those with well above average income, the Federal income tax withholding may be far more than FICA; FICA is capped, but income tax is not.

This can be also for employer granted loans and/or to pay back advances on previous pay.\n7. State Income Tax - Some stated have an income tax.

Because that is how Congress decided to pay for the Medicare program.
The laws for withholding pay are different on a state by state basis in the United States. For example, the State of Arizona does not allow withholding pay by more than five d…ays. Other states have similar restrictions. General contract law requires that if one is employed, then one is scheduled to receive pay no later than at the beginning of the next pay period. This may be two weeks, one half month, monthly, etc. There are US Federal guidelines on when an employer can not pay you. Absent a court order... they may only withhold the portion YOU have indicated to them to withhold, such as taxes. The rest must be timely paid to you.
The taxes are sent to the taxing authorities. For example, your federal income taxes and Social Security taxes are sent to the IRS. State taxes are sent to your state tax depa…rtment. Other deductions are sent to the appropriate party. Charity deductions are sent to the charity. Insurance deductions are sent to the insurance company (or kept by your employer if they are self-insured). Savings deductions are sent to the savings institution. 401k deductions are sent to the 401k trustee.
One should expect for there to be deductions for federal, state, local and social security tax. You may also see deductions for health insurance and your 401k investments.…
Many taxes are deducted from your paycheck, but sales tax is not one of them. Sales taxes are collected by a merchant at the point of purchase of most goods and some services.… The merchant remits the sales taxes to the state on your behalf. Occasionally, you many not pay sales taxes at the time of purchase, as in when you make a purchase online from a merchant in another state. In those cases, you would owe a use tax to your state which is usually paid when filling out your annual state income tax return.
Your employer sends it to the federal government to help your income tax bill
