It's the same percentage regardless of pay schedule.

re: Payroll Tax Question
If using a payroll company, the employer would save money by paying employees bi-weekly (26 times) or semi-monthly (24 times) vs. paying employees weekly (52 times).

No advantage from a tax purpose.

re: Payroll Tax Question
They take out 7.65% of your gross pay on the first $112,500 (for 2013) and then 1.45% on everything above that -- no matter how you are paid.

Oh, and this is taken off the top. However, YOU ARE STILL TAXED (via the income tax) on the amount they take out. So, not only do you NEVER see it, you're taxed on top of that on the money you NEVER see. Cute, isn't it.

It would benefit Obama because he could then tell the voters that he doubled the size of their paychecks.
