The federal tax withholding is not based on a specific percent.

It is based on how the W-4 form is filled and the tax withholding tables.

see W-4 form here -

To determine if you will owe any taxes at the tax time - we need to estimate your tax liability based on your income, deductions and credits and adjust withholding accordingly.
