I need to amend my taxes Determine the amount of withholding on the combined $5,000 amount to be $781 using the wage bracket tables. I need to amend my taxes Subtract the amounts withheld from wages on the most recent base salary pay date (May 1) and the amounts withheld from the first bonus payment from the combined withholding amount ($781 – $188 – $150 = $443).

I need to amend my taxes 50 added to wages for calculating income tax withholding is not reported on Form W-2, and does not increase the income tax liability of the employee. I need to amend my taxes Also, the $86.
