# When does your paycheck count? – ABC News

ABC News | September 30, 2018 8:31:05A few weeks ago, I started receiving a call from my husband’s brother-in-law.

He had been asked by a friend if he would like to borrow \$2,000.

It’s a little-known fact that your paycheck counts as income for purposes of your federal tax bill.

I thought it would be funny to try and get some sort of math out of him.

I was told that my paycheck was about \$400.

When I got home from work that night, I checked the spreadsheet and realized that my \$400 was \$400 less than the amount on my check.

My total bill was \$2.24.

The calculator on the phone said that my total was \$822.44.

This means that my check was about 20 percent of what I had originally claimed to have paid for it.

I quickly looked into the issue, but couldn’t find a way to get the math right.

So I went back to work and found a different person to talk to.

He also didn’t get it right, so I asked him.

He told me that my payroll was about 5 percent of the check I actually received.

This is an incorrect calculation.

My check was only 10 percent of my check amount.

When you get the correct amount for your check, it’s the same amount.

You should calculate the check you actually received based on the amount of your check amount, not the amount your employer reported.

Here are the two ways you can correct this error.

If your income is \$50,000, for example, you should calculate your check as if it was \$50.

That way, if your employer makes a mistake, you won’t be paying more than the correct \$50 amount on your check.

For example, if you’re making \$200,000 and your check was \$30,000 after deductions, you’d pay \$30.

The correct amount is the amount you received for the check.

The second way to correct this calculation error is to check your total wages.
