Tax Breaks?

by Lou
(Angier,NC)

I am a church organist. They pay my social security but no federal or state tax is withheld. What are the chances of requesting state and federal withholdings. What about "breaks"? I work very hard and while music is wonderful, it takes a lot of work and dedication.


Answer

The income and state tax withheld is determined by your completed W-4 on file. If it is not sufficient, you need to complete another W-4 and either not claim as many exemptions or request for more to be held out on line 6.

As far as your tax breaks, that would depend on your personal filing situation.

Hope this helps.
