I sold some RSUs once they were vested. I see in the Merrill Lynch statement that a certain amount of shares were taken out to cover the taxes. The federal tax is taken @ 25%.
Now, when I calculate my tax return, my final tax bracket is one step below 25% due to the 401k and other tax-deductible savings. My question is: will the Federal tax on the vested RSUs remain at 25% or they can/should be adjusted to the final tax bracket? (I see that in 1040, the capital gains/loss is only a relative number with respect to the cost basis. The amount reported in W-2 doesn't show up! So, it looks like the initial 25% tax-rate holds true throughout the 1040 form.)
Additional info: Cost basis is reported by Merrill Lynch. RSU vesting is reported in W-2.
