A Better Look at Pay Stub Deductions

Every pay check that you get usually comes with a paystub. Basically, this is a piece of paper which states the amount of money that you have earned for a certain time and also, the amount that’s deducted for insurance and taxes. The paystub usually is available with codes for both deductions and earnings. For some people, it may be a challenge to understand the deductions on paystub. It is vitally important that you know the amount withheld and the reason why.

In this article, we will be covering some of the usual deductions present in paystubs to assist you know what they exactly mean. If you are interested in today’s subject, then I suggest that you keep on reading.

Number 1. Med Tax – for sure, you are puzzled why you were not able to receive the exact amount you were told to in your job offer. This is due to the reason that part of your pay goes to FICA or Federal Insurance Contribution Act. This is actually a federal payroll that is making deductions from your salary to contribute to the Medicare program. These deductions are designed to run the program for people who are aged 65 years old and above.

Number 2. SS Tax – from the time being that you’re enrolled, you will be required to contribute to Social Security program. In this program, it is supporting all eligible beneficiaries most especially the ones who are disabled or candidate for retirement. You may claim your SS benefits once you hit your retirement age.

Number 3. State Tax – if you are going to check your paystub, you’d notice the column for state taxable wages. If there’s a specified amount you found in this column, then it only means that your state is allowing state taxes. It is going to be left blank in the event that your state is not allowing state income tax. Few of the states that levy income tax are Alaska, Florida, Washington, Nevada and Texas.

Number 4. Federal Tax – aside from your Social Security and Medicare paystub deductions, federal government takes its fair share too. But depending on your tax rate and allowances, the amount is going to be variable. However, this will also depend onto your retirement contributions and at the same time, your pre-tax expenses on health insurance as well as other benefits.

Number 5. State Disability Insurance (SDI) – in state of California, the workers are often subject to this deduction. Say for example that you’re covered by SDI, you’ll be able to benefit from Disability Insurance and Paid Family Leave.
