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.
