Why does my paycheck say tax blocked?

Taxes! We hate paying them, so let's discuss maximizing tax deductions!

Why does my paycheck say tax blocked?

Postby yehudi » Fri May 18, 2012 6:50 pm

I just started my second job it's part time. I already have a full time job. On my paycheck for my part time job it says Federal: 2 then my state: ,Tax Blocked
It was only a $9 check lol it was for a one hour meeting but I jus wasn't sure why it says that. Maybe because I didn't make enough money in that one hr for the right amount of taxes ? Idk I just don't want to owe anything when it's tax time.

And as you should already know your employer payroll department will be the only one that will really be able to give you the correct answer that you want and do need when it comes down to the information that they are required to enter on your check stub with your NET take home pay check at that time.
Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 05/17/2012

verbiage is odd but there are minimums at which no income taxes are withheld, there also should not have been ANY federal
when you have two jobs it is wise to adjust your W-4 to allow for the increase in gross
you can find help at and search for the W-4 calculator

You filed exempt on your W4.
