Understanding your Florida paycheck
Florida is a popular destination known for its sunny beaches and theme parks. But you are here for the state income tax (or lack of it). Here’s a breakdown of how your Florida paycheck works.
Like every other state, your earnings in Florida are subject to federal taxes. Your employer will withhold money from each paycheck to pay your federal income taxes. The amount withheld depends on your income, filing status, and the number of allowances you claim on your W-4 form. The W-4 form has recently been updated to reflect changes in tax laws, so make sure you fill it out accurately to avoid overpaying or underpaying your taxes.
In addition to federal taxes, your paycheck will also have deductions for FICA taxes. These taxes fund Social Security and Medicare, which you will benefit from in your retirement years. Your employer will withhold 6.2% of your earnings for Social Security, and for Medicare, 1.45%. Your employer will match these contributions, and any earnings over $200,000 are subject to an additional 0.9% Medicare tax.
Your employer may also deduct money for employee benefits, such as health, life, or disability insurance. If you participate in a 401(k) retirement plan, your contributions will count as pre-deductions. These contributions will lower your taxable income and reduce the income tax you owe.
Additional deductions may be taken from your Florida paycheck for items such as child support, wage garnishments, or retirement contributions.
It’s essential to understand the difference between pre-tax and post-tax deductions. Pre-tax deductions, like contributions to a 401(k), are deducted from your paycheck before taxes are taken out. This lowers your taxable income, which means you will owe less in taxes. Post-tax deductions, like child support or wage garnishments, are deducted from your paycheck after taxes are removed.
Your pay frequency can also affect the size of your paycheck. If you are paid more frequently, your paychecks will be smaller. If you are paid monthly, you will get a bigger check.
Calculate your Florida paycheck
Calculating your Florida state income tax is different from the steps we listed on our Federal paycheck calculator:
- Determine your gross income
- Annual salary
Annual salary = Gross income
- Hourly wage
Hourly wage × Hours worked per day × Days worked per week × Weeks worked per year = Your weekly paycheck
- Annual salary
- Work out your total federal income tax
- Gross income adjusted
Gross income − Pre-tax deductions = Gross income adjusted
- Federal taxable income
Gross income adjusted − Federal standard/itemized deductions = Federal taxable income
- Federal income tax liability
Federal taxable income × Federal income tax rate = Federal income tax liability
- Federal payroll tax liability
Gross income adjusted × Federal payroll tax rate = Federal payroll tax liability
- Gross income adjusted
- Figure out your net pay
Gross income − (Total income tax liability + Total payroll tax liability + Total pre-tax deductions + Total post-tax deductions + Total withholdings) = Your net pay
- Divide your net pay by your pay frequency
Your net pay / Days worked per week / Weeks worked per year = Your daily paycheck
Your net pay / 52 = Your weekly paycheck
Your net pay / 26 = Your bi-weekly paycheck
Your net pay / 24 = Your semi-monthly paycheck
Your net pay / 12 = Your monthly paycheck
Your net pay / 4 = Your quarterly paycheck
Your net pay / 2 = Your semi-annual paycheck
Your net pay = Your annual paycheck
