right workout for me? <<< Previous Question

Can I get the money that was witheld for taxes back? All of it?


Question Posted Sunday July 17 2011, 11:12 pm

Hi all-
This summer I have been working at a little cafe, not a chain restaurant or anything just a local place to eat.

I get paid $8 an hour, but after the taxes are taken out of my paycheck its only about $7 an hour! I lose about $50 from my paycheck every WEEK!

Some of my friends get paid straight $8 an hour without tax deductions because of the deal that if it is only a temporary job (such as employed for less than 6 months or something like that?), then money won't be deducted.

I am not planning on returning to this job next year; so since this would qualify as a "temporary job," is there ANYTHING I can do to get back the money that has been deducted?

I have saved all my receipts or whatever the top portion is that comes with the checks. If anyone knows anyway I can get money back, such as file for something, I would really, really appreciate it! I have gotten about $600 taken from my paycheck this summer :(

Thanks for any information!

Matt's right, you'll get most back in your taxes.

That's the form you'll most likely be using and you can use estimates to calculate your return :)


I don't know of any way to pay NO taxes at all. A part of your taxes go to social security and whatnot. Your friends are either being paid under the table or are employed through an agency of some kind/federal work study? Maybe ask how they managed such a thing because I've never heard of that. Even people who are eligible for paying very little in taxes (large families, low income, etc) still pay a bit in taxes regardless.

You'll get a good chunk of it back in your tax return next year.
