Earnings and Deductions
Your tax rate in the United States depends on a number of factors including your annual taxable income, number of claimed dependents, and any deductions to your income. Taxes can also be accessed by your state or local government. Taxes are withheld by Deel in accordance with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and state and local requirements.
Your withholding rate is determined by your income, filing status, number of dependents claimed, and deductions to your income. You may also request additional amounts to be withheld from your paycheck. This information is collected on the W-4 Employee’s Withholding Certificate as part of your onboarding process.
Mandatory contributions for Medicare and Social Security as well any applicable local taxes are also deducted from your pay.
[ACCORDION] Why is my first payslip different?
Your first pay check may be pro-rated to your actual start date. This means that your withholding rate, deductions, contributions, and net pay on your first pay check may be different than your regular monthly pay.
[ACCORDION] Why does my payslip have an amount of hours? Am I not a salaried employee?
As a salaried employee, the number you see on your paystub under hours/units does not reflect total hours worked. This is a byproduct/code used by the payroll software. Your salary may fluctuate due to leave of absences, vacation time, contributions, healthcare, etc.
