First pay check 2013

Yeah, Social Security is going back up to the rate it was from God-knows-when up until the end of 2010. In 2011 and 2012 the employee's rate was reduced by 2% to 4.2%, but no one was interested in extending that tax break so it went back up to the normal 6.2%

Also, nice work telling everyone you make $52k/yr ;)
I'm actually confounded by the change.

My wife's pay went down by $50. Mine went up by $120. I really don't understand how it went up.
Did you move to WA from another state? Maybe the payroll dept in your company takes the careful approach and just taxes to the max for the previous year to avoid you have to pay a lot in April.

Mine went down a fair bit, compared to a year ago.
Yeah, I did move partway through the year, but they adjusted it up once they transferred me on the books to WA. That was back in August. This one is confusing because it was for my Jan 1 check.

I know I need to talk to our payroll person, but I'm going to bask in it for a little bit. ;)
