Hello I'm a contract nurse from Alabama, doing a contract & physically working in Texas, and going through a job placement service from AZ. I have been working got this company for 3 months now. No AZ state taxes was ever mentioned nor any taken out. My last paycheck the company all of a sudden started taken AZ state taxes out. Below is my list of concerns. 1. No state with holding was ever officially filled out by me or signed. 2. No notification was ever given to me prior of starting such deductions. 3. Concentric has been operating in AZ for some time now and should already know the state tax laws. 4. No previous taxes were taken out on previous paychecks paid to me putting me at risk of tax violation codes. Who is now responsible for these taxes since none of the above had previously been completed? Gary XXXXX
