- I find this weird. Not sure if its good or not.
The school only ever deducted 3000nt each month for tax, all the way up to when I quit. Whether I was making 50k+ or only 30K+ near the end.
This means they were cheating the government, not you.
When I asked them for the 2006 papers, they said that the school did taxes once a year and they didn't have another tax paper for me, just the 2005 one.
- I also find this really weird. Why would they have a 2005 and not a 2006. I worked the whole 2006 year and almost all of it full time.
I was at the tax office and I asked them about paying the back taxes and they pulled up some info on the computer. The 2005 stuff was the same as the school gave me but the 2006 numbers looked a lot smaller than they should. The tax office gave me a couple tax return forms to fill out but I have no idea how to do them.
Is the amount deducted for tax on the info from the tax office for 2006 the same as the amounts on your pay stubs? If so, they are cheating the government, but not you. If the amounts deducted per your pay stubs add up to more than the info from the tax office, the school was cheating both.
If they weren't cheating you, I'd just go with the info the tax office has. You could use your pay stubs to prove to the tax office you were making more than the school claimed, but then you'd have to pay more tax, and the school will get in trouble.
Usually someone at the tax office will help you fill out the forms. Just ask.
