How do you figure out how to find taxes withheld?
The explanation I was given- For 2009, the US government amount for one withholding allowance on a biweekly paycheck is $140.38; additional allowances are the same amount#. Find the taxes withheld from a biweekly check for each of the following single US taxpayers in 2009. Amounts are annual salaries.
One of the taxpayers- (i) A firefighter who makes $46,380 (three withholding allowances)
I'm not sure how I would go about doing this.
& are withholding allowances the taxes withheld?
(Sorry if this is the wrong section, wasn't sure where to put it)
