Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I am a tax adviser with over 15 years of experience.28% would seem high but the check he received and why would put more light onto the situation.If this was a regular payroll check then depending on what he entered on his W4 would set the amount to withhold. If this was a bonus check then the higher amount would be reasonable because the withholding on bonus payments would not be set by the W4.
