How to Calculate 2013 Federal Income Tax Manually

by admin 17. January 2013 16:17

EzPaycheck small business software saves employers' time by simplifying payroll tax calculation, paycheck printing and tax reporting. However if you like to calculate the taxes manually, you can find the step by step guide below


For example:


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 $3,900 per year (For Year 2013).
She can get total $3900*2=$7800
For each pay period the deduction is: $7800/26=$300

3. Taxable income for each paycheck
So for each paycheck, the taxable income is: 640-300=$340.00
4. Federal tax 
(340.00-85.00) * 10%=255*10%=$25.5
