OP: care to explain what you mean?

Take a look at your paycheck from today.

@OP: yea I saw. It's considering we got $146.95 imputed earning. But how did you figure out we paid $67 in taxes?

Do we still get taxed if we didn't get one?

I just did the math of how much was less from previous paycheck.

I wish there was some sort of warning or return policy!

Can't fully compare check to check if you're traveling... The imputed income is added to your income and you'll pay the tax on the difference. Hopefully you're not at 45.5 tax rate... Same difference if you redeemed performance points for swag. Gotta pay the tax on the redeemed fair market value of the item.

That took 52% on it.

*they

LOL, Deloitte would pay the tax "on behalf of you"
