Federal Withholding

Thank you for your question.

Unfortunately, if you show a tax liability on your tax return and your employer did not withhold any federal taxes you will end up having to pay them with your federal tax return.

If this happens, you will likely want to fill out a form W4 with you employer to change your withholdings so that you won't end up owing again next year.
