Example 1:

2. His standard deduction for each paycheck is $0

 

3. His taxable income for each paycheck is $240

Example 2:

 

Karen is the employee of company ABC. She lives in Arizona. Her withholding rate is single/withhold at a single rate.  She has two allowances and no extra withholds.  She gets paid $10 per hour biweekly.  She works 64 hours for each biweekly pay period.


Followings are the steps to calculate the federal tax:
 

1. Gross pay for each paycheck: 
 
For each pay period, the gross pay is $640
 
2. Deduction for each paycheck:
The standard deduction is $4,000 per year (For Year 2015).
She can get total $4000*2=$8000
For each pay period the deduction is: $8000/26=$307.69

 
3. Taxable income for each paycheck
So for each paycheck, the taxable income is: 640-307.69=$332.31
 
4. Federal tax 
(332.31-88.00) * 10%=244.31*10%=$24.43
