Payroll Deductions Before Taxes

PAYROLL DEDUCTIONS THAT ARE DEDUCTED FROM PAY BEFORE TAXES ARE CALCULATED

All of the deductions listed below are deducted from your paycheck before taxes are calculated, meaning you do not pay Federal and state taxes on them. To match your taxable salary to your gross salary (the gross year-to-date amount on your 12/22 paycheck), add these pay codes to your taxable salary amount.

Please note that the calendar year pay ends on 12/15 of every year. The amount that appears on the W-2 is determined by the date wages are paid, not when they are earned. Compensation and deductions for the pay period ending 12/31 are paid on 1/7 of the following calendar year (and counted in earnings for the following calendar year).
