Federal taxes not being taken out when w4 has married with 1 allowance

Nice to have you in the Community, @rblalock11. I can provide clarification on federal taxes not being taken out.

 

Since you've referenced that this occurs when their W4 is set to married with one allowance, it's possible that the gross amount is not large enough for federal income taxes to be withheld. I suggest comparing it with the information contained in Publication 15 (2019), (Circular E), Employer's Tax Guide. The minimum amount for withholding will vary based on pay schedule. 

 

This resource is a good place to start. 

 

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Have a good one.
