Can my employer take bonus check tax out under “voluntary deductions” on next paycheck?
Asked by: epondel
My employer forgot to tax my bonus check and instead took the tax amount out of my next paycheck under “voluntary deductions.” All it says under voluntary deductions is “miscellaneous” and the amount reduced from paycheck. I thought voluntary deductions is just for misc. work expenses you have agreed to cover.
How does this affect me for taxes? Will it just show I made less income overall so I will be taxed less or will there be an issue with how it is reported?
