HEY!!! Update

Well, the error wasn't an SS issue, or anything interesting like that. I had to go back through all of my check stubs, but I finally found where it occurred.

My company has never paid for moving anyone before. This "error" was a part of that. Basically, they "paid" me an amount that, after taxes, would leave me with my allowance amount... which was originally going to be cash.

It's all straightened out, now, but it cost me a good part of Friday night trying to figure out what the hell was going on.

Again, if you don't save your check stubs, you should rethink that...

Whew - glad you figured it out. Now you don't have to worry about it until next year. ;-)

You can go to paycheckcity.com and plug in your W-2 amounts, do the annual calculation, and see if you're going to be short on your FED and CA withholding. Hopefully, your company grossed up your taxes (paid them on your behalf) so that you don't owe.

Good luck, Buddy!

Good to know! I've never kept my check stubs.
Glad to hear you got it all sorted out. Also glad you didn't mention cookies.

And the REAL secret is to not just save them but to actually LOOK at them.....
