How does the Louisiana Paycheck Calculator Work? 

No matter which state you live in, your employer deducts money from your earnings for FICA taxes, including both Social Security and Medicare taxes. Your employer withholds 6.2 percent of your earnings for Social Security taxes and 1.45 percent of your earnings for Medicare taxes from each paycheck. Your employer also pays this amount.

Unless you are single, head of household, or a qualified widow(er), the 0.9% Medicare surtax will be imposed on you on earnings over $200,000. For married couples who file jointly, this tax is imposed on earnings over $250,000; for married couples who file separately, the tax is imposed on earnings over $125,000. Your employer pays none of this.

As for federal income tax withholding, there is only one way to get out of this if you make very little. It all depends on your marital status, the number of dependents you have, and how much income you have that is subject to income tax.
