Hello, I'm Jeremy from TurboTax with some important information about your IRS payroll taxes. If you are an employee, I am sure at one time or another you've looked at your pay stub to find a large portion of your income withheld before you even get paid. All of these withholdings are called payroll deductions that relate to different taxes you have to pay. Probably the biggest payroll deduction you'll see is for Federal Income Taxes and if you also live in a state that charges income tax, the amounts will likely be withheld for this too. In both cases these are estimates of what you will actually owe when you file your tax return and they're based on the information you provided on the W4 you have the HR Department. Because it is not a perfect estimate, tax payers will often get a tax refund at the end of the year for paying too much out of their paychecks. The Federal government requires your employer to withhold more than just income taxes. You are also responsible for paying employment taxes too. Employment taxes that you pay go directly to fund Social Security and Medicare. The amounts you see withheld usually equal about 8% of your earnings most of which goes toward Social Security. Social Security and Medicare decreased to about 6% for 2011. One good thing about these employment taxes is that the amounts you pay are only half of what is actually owed. The IRS requires your employer to pay the other half. For more tax tips and guidance, visit TurboTax.com.
Hola, soy Jeremy de TurboTax con alguna información importante sobre tus impuestos de nómina del IRS (siglas en inglés de Servicio de Impuestos Internos). Si eres un empleado, estoy seguro de que en algún momento has mirado en tu recibo de sueldo para encontrar una gran porción de tu ingreso retenido antes de que siquiera te pagaran. Todas estas retenciones se llaman deducciones de nómina que se relacionan con los diferentes impuestos que tienes que pagar. Probablemente, la mayor deducción de nómina que verás es para Impuestos Federales sobre la renta. Y si también vives en un estado que cobra impuestos sobre la renta, las cantidades probablemente también serán retenidas para esto. En ambos casos se trata de estimaciones de lo que realmente se adeuda cuando presentas tu declaración de impuestos y que están basadas en la información proporcionada en el W4 que le diste al Departamento de Recursos Humanos. Debido a que no es un cálculo perfecto, los contribuyentes conseguirán a menudo una devolución de impuestos al final del año por pagar demasiado de sus cheques de pago. El gobierno federal requiere que tu empleador te retenga más que simplemente impuestos sobre la renta. También eres responsable del pago de impuestos sobre el empleo. Los impuestos de empleo que pagas van directamente a financiar la Seguridad Social y Medicare. Las cantidades que se ven retenidas por lo general serán equivalentes aproximadamente al 8% de tus ingresos, la mayoría de los cuales se destinan a la Seguridad Social. Los del Seguro Social y Medicare disminuyeron hasta alrededor del 6% para el 2011. Una cosa buena acerca de estos impuestos sobre el empleo es que las cantidades que pagas son sólo la mitad de lo que realmente se debe. El IRS requiere que tu empleador pague la otra mitad.
