everything entered correctly and in the correct field.

- Enter your W-4 number of Allowances/Deductions for Federal
and State Withholdings from your pay stub.
- Enter your Deduction Amounts from your pay stub
into the Table of Deductions as Taxable or Non-Taxable. Using the Deduction List to determine the appropriate column. These amounts are to be entered
as a Positive Number. Do not enter the amount of your Retirement Deduction as
this is already calculated in. If you are using a Biweekly Calculator and only have monthly premium amounts be sure to multiply by 12 and divide by the number of pay period.
- If you have 401k/403b accounts enter the % deducted
in the highlighted field under 401k/403b column heading. Do not
enter these under Deductions.
Verify that you have
everything entered correctly by checking to be sure that your Net Pay matches
your pay stub.

to your Gross Pay, Federal or State Tax Exemptions, or Deductions to see how it
will affect your Net Pay.
