Are Taxes to be Deducted from Paycheck for Pay Period or From Date Check is Cut?
I work for a government agency in NJ. Today is January 3, 2013 and I just got my paycheck that covers Dec 9-Dec. 22, 2012 which shows they have deducted the 2% Social Security tax increase which became effective on January 1, 2013. When I asked my administrator she said they base it on the check date, not the pay period. Is this accurate and legal?
