First Job?

Get your first job? Your employer will have you fill out a W-4. Find out more about what information you'll need to complete it.

For employees, withholding is the amount of federal income tax withheld from your paycheck. The amount of income tax your employer withholds from your regular pay depends on two things:

  • The amount you earn.

  • The information you give your employer on Form W–4.

For help with your withholding, you may use the Tax Withholding Estimator. You can use the Tax Withholding Estimator to estimate your 2020 income tax. The Tax Withholding Estimator compares that estimate to your current tax withholding and can help you decide if you need to change your withholding with your employer.


If you are an employee, your employer probably withholds income tax from your pay. Tax may also be withheld from certain other income — including pensions, bonuses, commissions, and gambling winnings.
