    man..every friday I cant even enjoy my paycheck because I look right at my taxes. Im wondering if I filled my W2 out wrong

    I got married and had a kid since I last did one so not sure how much of a difference that would make.

    *new driver* this paycheck actually should have been $22.75 but you know how that goes.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    First off all, you fill out a W-4, not a W-2.

    Second, the numbers look right.

    Third, you are working way too much overtime!

    Not quite following..if your pay rate is incorrect you are guaranteed your correct pay within 24 hours or they are forced a penalty daily....give copy to supervisor and say you want a green check next day'ed union immediately.

    No such thing as "too much overtime" when you are making 60% of full rate.

    You have some municipal withholding that many of us don't have, but 30% range for taxes/fica, etc is not unusual.

    Man, you guys get raped in state taxes up there. Your tax break down looks like my cell phone bill, total BS.

    The rate is 6.27% for married filing jointly in my tax bracket.

    That OT is sometimes the norm on certain routes. I average that plus 2-5 hours on top if it's a busy week.

    In the BOG it might be. But in most big centers,this is normal

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Only 10%. Should try to double that if possible. If you don't do Roth could help some with the taxes too

    Based on 40 hrs per week, you would be at 39g's income for the year.
    Based on the OT figure, that would be a touch over 52g's income for the year.
    Perhaps the OT kicks you into a higher tax bracket vs a regular 40 hr week?
