The withholding amounts seem wrong, is the calculator accurate?

We have developed the payroll tax calculations since 1997. If the calculated amounts seem wrong, you may want to check the parameters used. The parameters are marital status, # of allowance and the paycycle. The paycycle is very important for calculating the estimated income taxes.
