How Pennsylvania Payroll Tax Calculator Works? 

It is difficult to ascertain your take-home pay when all these deductions and taxes are made on your paycheck. Pennsylvania requires employers to deduct federal and state income and FICA taxes from their paychecks. You may also pay local income taxes depending on where you live in the state. 

The federal income tax withheld from your paycheck is based on how much you earn and the information you have provided in your W-4 form. The IRS recently overhauled the W-4 form, eliminating allowances and creating a five-step process that includes providing annual dollar amounts of any additional income, jobs, and other personal information.

Regarding your FICA taxes, 6.2 percent of your earnings goes toward Social Security taxes. To fund this program, your employer must match that, making it a total of 12.4 percent received by the government. The Medicare taxes are similar in that you and your employer contribute 1.45 percent each for 2.9 percent. However, income over $200,000 is charged an additional Medicare surtax of 0.9 percent, which your employer does not pay. The Social Security and Medicare taxes create the FICA, or Federal Insurance Contributions Act, taxes.
