Something odd I noticed today about tax withholding
I check periodically via the IRS Withholding Calculator to see if I need to adjust things. To do that you need to have the amount of taxes withheld. Today in verifying my taxes taken out of my federal retirement I noticed an odd thing. Starting this month there was a new category, Federal Tax Withheld (Citizen). This is the first month that the word Citizen has been added. For you tax people is this a method to verify the citizenship of the person's taxes to place it into another bucket?
While there may have been non-citizens when I was working for the federal government I do not remember any qualifier allowing for a non-citizen to be employed. I am aware that there are non-citizens in the military but this is the civil area.
