I started a job at a hardware store and got my paycheck. No federal tax was taken out. My wife, who is also my accountant cause she was a VP at a bank told me that they should take it out. Got my second pay check and the same thing happened. Is this normal? I read somewhere online that if you make a certain amount, the employer is not gonna take it out, is this true?

Depending on what information you supplied on your W-4 you may not have met the threshold for having federal tax witheld.

They take stuff out for Social and Medicare but not the Federal. On my W-4 I put 0.

Spoke to the owner of the store and he said based on the hours I make, I am not eligible. So hope that is right

FWIW, working at a bank does not necessarily make someone an accountant.

If you need to have some money witheld to meet your projected family tax obligations then you can submit another W4 and indicate an amount to be witheld each pay period.

If you want to see the amounts that should be witheld for any income level check out this IRS publication (begin on page 45 unless you really enjoy boring reading) >>>> http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p15.pdf
