I got a new job. My first paycheck was for only one week of work since I started during a pay period. These are the figures:
Gross Pay: 2395.83 Federal Income Deduction: 151.62 California State Income Deduction: 90.63
My second paycheck was for 10 days of work so I figured the deductions would simply be double but they are significantly more. These are the figures:
Gross Pay: 4791.67 Federal Income Deduction: 495.79 California State Income Deduction: 335.30
Both paychecks are using
3 for the federal and state exemptions. Can you please help me figure out why those numbers are so much higher for simply another week of work?
