What happens if I claim an exemption and earn more than $12,000?
Your employer will be required to "catch up" in the pay period in which you reach $12,000 with that employer. The LST withheld from each paycheck in which you reach $12,000 should total $52 divided by the number of pay periods in which you anticipate working in the calendar year, then multiplied by the number of pay periods worked to date.
