In order to calculate how much tax will be deducted from your pay check will require some mathematical workings on your part. There are no precise figures that can be presented to you because your situation may be different to others.

However, what can be said are the percentage tax deductions that are imposed by the State of Florida. So to begin, it is know that everybody has around 6.2% of their pay check sent to Social Security funding. As well as this, there is around 1.45% tax that is sent to pay for your Medicare. The State of Florida does not have any sort of state income tax, so that is not something that you should be concerned about.

The biggest question mark that will sit over the tax deductions from your pay check would arise from federal income tax. This is where you would need to make the calculations for your own personal finances.

It all depends on how much you are getting paid and the frequency at which you are getting paid (for example per day, per week, per month) or indeed if it has been one single day of work where you receive one payment upfront.

When you signed on to work for your employer, you will have filled in a W-4 form. This form would then help your employer in establishing how much of your pay they withheld to send to federal income tax charges. This can vary from 0 per cent all the way up to around 35 per cent.

Therefore, how much tax that is deducted from your pay check is all associated with the details and information you have put on that W-4 form, your income and how your employer has used that information to calculate your federal income tax.
