  1. Is the supplemental wage amount itemized & reported to the IRS separately from regular wages? If not, then this makes absolutely no difference which method your employer uses in the end – as long as you don’t mind giving uncle sam a temporary interest free loan, but It will all even out with your tax return. Someone please confirm that this is true.

  2. Just concerned about why bonus is taxed- not clear whether bonus is supposed to be taxed. if you receive your bonus not taxed, will it affect your monthly income tax
