I am married filing jointly.
My wife has several part time jobs. We're trying to figure out how we should pay our taxes due to the withholding not taking my salary into consideration.
I went through her recent payslips and the withholdings don't make sense to me. For example, in one of the payslips:
Gross payment: 533.33 Social security: 33.07 Fed Income Tax: 27.08
27.08/533.33 = 5.077%, which doesn't sound right for any kind of filing (married filing jointly, single, head of household, etc. - look below). Shouldn't it be 10% or more?
Social security looks right (6.2%).
Where does that 5.077% come from?
