Reading the Pay statement
  • Before-Tax Deductions: These items are deducted from your pay before federal withholding and, in some cases, before Medicare and Social Security taxes are calculated. Includes the cost of benefits you selected and contributions to your retirement account (s).
  • After-Tax Deductions: Any other items withheld from your pay, such as additional insurance deduction, local 1021 dues and fees or Peralta Federation Contributions . These amounts are deducted from your pay after federal withholding; Medicare and Social security taxes are calculated.
  • Employer-Paid Benefits: Show the value of any benefits paid by Peralta Community College District, such as employer paid portion of retirement, or employer paid portion of medical insurance costs.
  • Federal Taxable Gross: The amount of pay that is subject to federal withholding tax. This is your current total earnings minus your current total before-tax deductions.
  • Net Pay Total: Your net pay is your current total gross pay minus your current total before-tax deductions, current total taxes and current after-tax deductions. This is your “take-home” pay.
  • Net Pay Distribution: For direct deposit, this area shows how much was credited to your bank, savings and loan or credit union account (s). The total of all amounts will equal your Net Pay Total (see #10 above). If you do not have direct deposit, this section is your actual paycheck.
2011 payroll tax cuts boost take home pay
2011 Payroll Tax Cuts Boost Take-Home Pay

Temporary Employee Payroll Tax Cut (also referred to as the Payroll Tax holiday) provides two percentage point payroll tax cut for employees, reducing the Social Security tax withholding to 4.2% from 6.2% of paid wages effective January 1, 2011.

2011 Federal withholding tables

Note: Employees may see an increase in their 2011 federal withholding taxes because the Making Work Pay credit expired December 31, 2011.

Noteworthy reminder: Employees should review their withholdings every year and if necessary fill out a form W-4 and submit to payroll.


district compliance
District Compliance
  • All payroll processes are subject to audit
  • Without approval and correct documentation payments to employees will be delayed
  • Overtime requires written approval from College President or Vice Chancellor of your department for each submission
  • (12/9/10 Memo from Chancellor Allen)

2011 Payroll Tax Cuts

  • Many middle and lower income taxpayers may not see a bounce in their take home, because The Making Work Pay (TMWP) Tax Credit worth up to $400 per person expired at the end of 2010
  • While SS withholding went down, the income withholding went back to what it was before 2009.

If you made over $75,000/year you were not eligible for TMWPTC of ~35.00 a paycheck last year. The 2% rate is obvious and clear to you this year.

  • Those who made less than $75,000 were getting the TMWP tax credit last year. With the 2% SS rate cut for 2011 - the net will be a little confusing - technically facing a loss of the ~$35 month credit they were getting – now the 2% SS rate cut.

Bottom line: the 2% Employee SS tax rate is REAL and is applied to Everyone.
