My Employer Didn't Withhold My Federal Income Tax!
I started my job at the beginning of June, 2018. My pay is bi-weekly.
I just got my first payment deposit, and I noticed that only social security, medicare, and my additional withholding of $25 that I entered in my W-4 are being withheld! No mention of the federal income tax! Before you ask, I filed 3 allowances in my W-4. I have earned some money from a part-time job so far this year before starting this job, but I have made less than $2000 probably.
Okay, now I have two questions:
1- Why wasn't the federal income tax withheld?
2- How can I estimate my tax withholding (using the tax brackets) if I'm an hourly-based employee?
If anybody can help me to find some answers, I would highly appreciate it.
