  • Why are my taxes so high!?

Your taxes maybe so high, because your income is too high too.
Answer #2 | 12/12 2013 05:52
How much do you make per pay, how often are you paid, where are you, what do you have on your W-4? 18% is normal.
Answer #3 | 12/12 2013 04:38
Slow down now and think about this matter very slowly but when the gross amount is more then more taxes are withheld BUT after the taxes you will still more take home pay in you pay check at that time than when your GROSS was a lesser smaller amount and then that take home pay was less smaller than the current on is at his time RIGHT. Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 12/12/2013

18%!?!?!? wait until you start making real money. double check your with holding with human resources. you'll probably get it all back when you file your taxes.

By saying 'it could be worse' is NOT going to help you at all. However, the 18% does sound correct. Before I retired - I worked in HR doing Payroll and the normal was closer to 20%.

Welcome to the real world. Mine are even higher.

New to the workworld ? That 18% is normal for incomes below $20,000 a year.

Really? That's very low. Are you sure you did the math right? Taxes are normally much higher than that. Your taxes are so low because you didn't make a lot or because someone made a mistake. Your taxes are higher than you want them to be because taxes are usually higher than you want them to be.

Welcome to the real world. Mine is about 27%
Answer #11 | 12/12 2013 13:57
18%, well 7.65% of that is FICA and not refundable and has been the law for decades maybe 1% is a state employee tax so if the remainder was withheld for income tax it is probably not out of line
