Q:  My gross wages from my last paycheck stub do not equal my taxable wages on my W-2. Why?
A:  Taxable wages are your gross wages minus all pretax deductions such as: 401k, Dental, Medical, Vision, Flex Spending Accounts, Health Savings Accounts, etc.

Q:  I did not have any Federal or State tax withheld from my wages. Why?
A:  It is the responsibility of the associate to ensure that your tax withholdings are correct during the year.  If you chose “exempt” on those forms, then you will not have the corresponding tax withheld until you submit an updated W-4 form. Payroll will not adjust the tax withholdings for the prior year. Additionally, in certain situations, an associate’s pay may not have met the minimum amount required by the IRS to withhold taxes during the payroll period.
