Tax Information for Employees
The federal income tax is a pay-as-you-go tax. There are two ways to pay as you go. If you are an employee, your employer probably withholds income tax from your pay. The amount withheld is paid to the IRS in your name. Estimated tax is used to pay not only income tax, but self-employment tax and alternative minimum tax as well.
