No State withheld from paychecks/Corrected W2

My temporary employer did not withhold state tax from my paychecks for the 6 months I worked in 2016. I got them to make the correction to the W2. Shouldn't there be something else done to send in the taxes that should have been withheld before the tax year 2016 ends? My employer is telling me to just file next year with the corrected W2 which wont be available until 2017. But that will leave me with a big state (Maryland) tax bill and a penalty, won't it?

every employer is responsible for withholding federal taxes from employee paychecks and sending the money to the government. Many states also have state income taxes that are withheld and sent to the state governments.In your case, you can Make adjustments to your employer W-4 form, if necessary, to more closely match your liability. To avoid being caught off guard by an unexpected tax bill or huge tax refund, you'll need to adjust your withholdings on your paycheck.One way to increase your withholdings is to put the actual amount you want deducted on Line 6 (?Additional Withholdings?) of the W-4.



My employer is telling me to just file next year with the corrected W2 which wont be available until 2017. But that will leave me with a big state (Maryland) tax bill and a penalty, won't it?=>Correct; unless your ER withhold enough for your state income tax, you must pay both interest/penalties when you file your 2016 return on 2017. Your employer maintains a tax account into which all withheld taxes are held. The funds are sent to the proper state and federal agencies each quarter. There are mandated forms to be filled out and sent in with the money. An employer failing to withhold, report and submit employee taxes can be criminally charged. In addition, there are stiff financial penalties for not properly dealing with employee taxes. Whileyopu, as an employee will not be penalized for the employer's failure to withhold taxes; since you discover the taxes are not being withheld or not being sent in, speaking to your employer might resolve the issue. You also have the right to report your employer to your state revenue department.
