Comment: HEY!!!

Be careful with that...sometimes, money (in the form of certain benefits) that is actually not paid to you is considered taxable income.

Thanks for stopping by, Pam!

The thing with this is, I had no benefits until January 1st. I'm trying to figure out why my total earnings say that I've made 10 grand more than I actually have... and I only worked for them during the last quarter of the year.

SS number error.

Check with HR to make sure your SS# is correct in their files and on all your forms you signed.

Sadly one must check every detail because honestly you never know when someone will hit the wrong decimal place when entering an amount or adding an extra zero or even missing a zero (very likely what happened here *sigh*). Or when a company's algorithm has an error. It might be that way for a whole lot of people!

Good catch!

T1G,
Did you get some money for relocation? If so, that is taxable income to you. It would hit Boxes 1, 3 & 5. We put ours in between the Dec 15 and the Dec 31 paychecks. There may also be a special amount listed in Box 12 or 14.

It's good that you are checking though. Most people only look at the last pay stub of the year, and the first one of the next year.

Call me if you want me to check it out.
