  • Pennsylvania exempt salary question... Pennsylvania

    Alright so I need some help clarifying my company's reasoning for their exempt salaried status for me as a full time employee. I work as a mobile marketing manager for a PA company where I am 100% travel. We agreed to $2750.00 per month for salary. The contract started on July 25th and ends in December. So my question is how can they tax me for a full years salary when I am not even contracted for a full 6 months. It adds up that my gross pay comes out to 1269.23 every two weeks. Does this sound right? I should also add that I recieve a daily per diem on a corporate credit card for 150.00 a day for food and housing. I am use to being an independent contractor when it comes to tax issues so that is why i am a little confused with the term exempt salaried.
    Thanks so much for your expertise.

    That is the correct gross amount biweekly. ($2,570 * 12 months) / 26 paychecks per year.

    Whether or not the per diem is taxable or tax-free depends on the rate for the geographic area (among other things).

      I have no idea what they are taking out in taxes, but your tax liability is set by the federal government, so if too much is being taken out, you will get the excess back early next year.

      It would be better if the correct amount is withheld, but I cannot tell if that is the case or not.

      As for being salaried exempt, what is your question?
