Tax withholding is based on the amount of wages on an annualized basis. Nine exemptions subtracts about 40,000 from annual income calculations. If you annual income less exemptions is 10,000, your withholding is zero. If you annual income is 250,000, it's 35%. Also, FICA tax is not affected by exemptions. It's 7. 65%.
