    That’s why you file tax returns and you will have to pay them at that point.

    Pay them. Your responsibility to make sure the tax liability is addressed when you are hired.

    Employers only withhold what you tell them to withhold based on the W4 that you filed.

    It is possible that your income is low enough that you wouldn’t owe any taxes any way.

    You can go to http://www.paycheckcity.com and verify the amounts that should’ve been withheld.

    FIT federal income tax amounts the Box 2 of your W-2 form $ amount as a TAX CREDIT amount for you to use on your 1040 income tax return during the 2013 tax filing season for that purpose.
    Possible NOTHING to be reported as long your employer did withhold the REQUIRED FICA social security and medicare tax amounts as they were supposed to do when you are a employee that would have employer at that time in your life.
    Should not be any problem if you can read very slowly and follow the instructions and enter information on your 1040EZ tax form during the 2013 tax filing season for this purpose and time in your life.
    Go to the http://www.irs.gov website and use the search box for 1040EZ and choose the instruction to get started.

    •“Section 2—Filing Requirements” helps you decide if you even have to file.
    •“Section 3—Line Instructions for Form 1040EZ” follows the main sections of the form, starting with “Top of the Form” and ending with “Signing Your Return.” Cut-outs from the form connect the instructions visually to the form.
    •“Section 4—After You Have Finished” gives you a checklist for completing a return. It also gives you information about filing the return.
    •“Section 6—Getting Tax Help” has topics such as how to get tax help, forms, instructions, and publications. It also gives you other useful information, such as how to check the status of a refund.
    Helpful Hints

    W-2 forms from your employers during the 2013 tax filing season look at it closely and find the Box 2 FIT $ amount if it should happen have some amount in the Box 2 for this purpose then you would want to fill out and file a 1040 income tax return during the 2013 tax filing season using the Box 2 amount as TAX CREDIT and REFUND that you should be able to qualify for when you do correctly completed your 1040 income tax return during the 2013 tax filing season for this purpose and time in your life.
    Be sure and check the box on the page 1 of the 1040 income tax return to indicate that you are a dependent of another taxpayer for the tax year and that you do NOT claim your own exemption and the amount on that line at that time is -0- ZERO
    Sign the completed 1040 income tax return and make a copy for your records and then send the other signed copy on to the IRS for processing at that time in your life.

    Report what? You knew all year long that no FIT was being withheld so it’s a bit late now to be asking why. You SHOULD have asked your employer why no taxes were being withheld back when you got your first paycheck that showed no withholding. All that you can do now is pay up.

    That said, you may not have a problem. If your income was below the filing requirement for your filing status no tax would be due so not having any withheld isn’t an issue. Also, if you have one or more children it’s entirely possible that you might be getting a refund despite the fact that no FIT was withheld.
