If I paid $680 a week, and after the deductions it's $520, why does the $680 get withdrawn from my acc? That $160 does that get returned to me? If so when? New to this
Because you are actually paying your employee 680 but the IRS and state require withholdings against wages. These withholdings are usually remitted once a month. It should actually be a little more because the employer needs to make a matching contribution of social security. In addition there is federal unemployment and state unemployment.
