ADP have a useful calculator for your bi-weekly income and how much tax will be deducted. It’s quite impressive because it is very detailed. Your Federal and State Tax differ if you are a nonresident, or if you are married and what part of New York your company is located. It will also deduct the benefits (medical, healthcare, retirement, etc) you are paying for. I hope you find it helpful. Here is the site.


The amount of taxes that will be withheld from your paycheck will depend on a number of factors, including your income, filing status, and the number of exemptions you claim. In the United States, the federal income tax is progressive, which means that the higher your income, the higher the percentage of your income that will be taxed.

You can use the IRS's Withholding Calculator on their website to get a more accurate estimate of how much will be withheld from your paycheck. It will help you determine the right amount of withholding for your situation. You will need to have information handy such as your most recent pay stubs and a completed Form W-4. The calculator will ask you a series of questions about your income and deductions, and will then provide you with a suggested number of allowances to claim on your Form W-4, along with the resulting withholding amounts per paycheck.

You can also use the IRS Publication 15-T, Federal Income Tax Withholding Methods, to find a more in depth explanation of the process and calculations.

It's worth noting that state taxes may vary by state, so you should check the state tax laws of New York to find out how much state income tax will be withheld from your paychecks.

It's a good idea to check your taxes regularly and make any adjustments necessary in order to avoid owing taxes or getting a big refund at the end of the year.
