Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
For supplemental payments (bonuses, severance and such) payroll department can choose
- 25% flat rate OR
- aggregate method (using your W4 info).
If the supplemental wages does not exceed 1M, employer can choose one or another. If the amount is over 1M, he must use 35% flat rate.
