Do you pay taxes on 401k withholdings?
By withholding I will guess that you mean the amounts that you are contributing to your 401K BEFORE income taxes (deferred compensation amount) that will not be subject to the income taxes during the year and will reduce the amount of your taxable gross wage amount that is reported in box 1 of your W-2 form at the end of the tax year. The deferred contribution amounts will be subject to income tax in future years when you retire and start receiving distribution the taxable distribution amounts from your 401K plan and at that time the taxable amounts will added to all of your other gross worldwide income on your 1040 income tax return and subject to the federal income tax at your marginal tax rate.

No. Any withholding is an estimate...corrected when you file you actual report.
when you withdraw the money, yes.
Yes. Arizona teachers must be covered by Social Security to participate in the Arizona State Retirement System. see: http://www.azcharters.org/Conference_Presentations/Present…ations/Monday/Breakout%20Block%204%20%284.00%20-%205.00%29/Arizona%20State%20Retirement%20System%20Programs,%20Mark%20Muraoka/Defined_Benefit_Plan.pdf
Generally, your contributions aren't taxed (put in before taxes), and your withdrawals are taxed.
None, of course. Just like there is maximum amount of tax you can pay - based on their is no maximum amount of income you can earn....all withholding is how you pay the …tax in installments when an mployee...if you weren't an employee, but self employed...you would have to make estimated tax payments at least quarterly...and there is no max on that either.
That is the job of the Federal Government and State in which you live. It is not something you can or should be involved with. If they fail to pay, you are not liable, they ar…e. The easiest way to see if they are paying at all is if they still give you a check. The Federal Government is fairly quick to shut down companies that don't pay.
Do I ay taxes on.my 401k at age 62
Is it legal for employer to withhold 401k contributions from check but not pay them in to your 401k?
Yes. When monies are deducted from your paycheck they are supposed to be sent to a trust company to protect them. The reason for the trust company to hold them is so no one ha…s access to your funds, but you. You will definitely want to submit your paystubs to your plan administrator to determine the discrepancy.
Distributions from your 401K after you reach your retirement age the taxable amount will be subject to federal income tax at your marginal tax rate and may be subject to some …state income tax.
Do you still have to pay taxes on the twenty percent withholding from your distribution of your old 401k?
YES the taxable amount of the distribution is added to all of your other gross worldwide income on your 1040 federal income tax return and taxed at your marginal tax rate. If …you are under the age of 59 1/2 and you do NOT meet any of the exemption form the 10% early withdrawal penalty then the 10% early withdrawal penalty will also apply to the taxable amount of the distribution. You will get a credit for the 20% amount that was withheld from your distribution amount as an advance payment of any possible taxes that would be due. When your 1040 federal income tax return is completed correctly the withheld amount will be entered on page 2 of the 1040 income tax return line 61 Federal income tax withheld from Forms W-2 and 1099 line 61 $$$$ amount.
You can have some income tax withheld from the distribution amount are you can choose to make some quartely estimated tax payments or you can wait until you file your income t…ax in the next year after the year that you receive the distribution amount by the due of your income tax for the previous year return and pay the full amount of taxes at that time. A calender year taxpayer the due date for filing and paying any amount owed would be April 15 of the next year
Nothing is withheld from your weekly take home paycheck after it is issued to you. You should get this information from your employer's payroll department as they will be th…e one that would know how much FICA, federal income tax, state income, local taxes, etc they will have to withhold from your gross earnings wages, etc. before they print your check for your net take home pay. After the withheld amount for all taxes is subtracted from your gross earnings, wages, etc. your paycheck will issued for the net amount of your net take home pay.
Two reasons. Before Pay As You Go (or withholding as we now know it) at the end of each year every taxpayer had to scrape together all of the taxes owed. This could be a h…uge sum, and not everyone was disciplined enough to save throughout the year. The second reason was World War 2. WW2 created huge problem with funding the war, and as a result war bonds were being issued and pushed to cover the gap between when the country needed the money and when it actually received it. Basic cash flow.
If you withdraw money from your 401k plan, it will be taxed just like any other income. So, the amount that you will pay will depend on what tax bracket the withdrawal pushes …you into. If you do not meet one of the exceptions, you will also be subject to a 10% early withdrawal penalty. This penalty is charged by the IRS and it is reported on your tax return for the year of the withdrawal. So, if you are in a 25% tax bracket and you are subject to the early withdrawal penalty, you are going to pay a total of 35% of the withdrawal in Federal income tax. If you live in a State that has state income tax, remember that you will need to pay that too.
A Cooperative Society does not pay withholding taxes. Withholding taxes are taxes deducted at source from incomes earned by individuals and corporate bodies that are subject t…o payment of taxes. The taxess so withheld are subsequently deducted from the final tax liabilities of such individuals/corporate bodies. Since Cooperative Societies do not pay taxes on their profits it will be impossible to deduct such withheld taxes and so the Cooperative suffers.
When paying withholding tax the double accounting method would be to first post the amount as an Accounts Receivable, under Withholding Tax. The next step would be to post… the amount to Accounts Payable under Withholding Tax.
