A quick definition of withholding:

Term: Withholding

Definition: Withholding is when a certain amount of money is taken out of a person's income, like their paycheck or money they make from investments. This money is usually taken out to pay for things like taxes. The person or company who takes out the money then gives it to the government. For example, if you work at a job, your employer might take out some money from your paycheck to pay for taxes and then give that money to the government.

A more thorough explanation:

Definition: Withholding in a legal context means taking out a certain amount or percentage of money from a person's income, like from their paycheck or investment earnings. This money is usually paid to the government by the person or organization that withholds it (like an employer).

Example: Let's say you work at a company and earn $1,000 per paycheck. Your employer is required by law to withhold a certain amount of money from your paycheck for taxes. This means that you might only receive $800 in your paycheck, with $200 being withheld and sent to the government.

Another example is if you receive dividends from stocks you own. The company that pays the dividends might withhold a certain percentage of the earnings and send it to the government on your behalf.

These examples show how withholding works in practice - a portion of your income is taken out and sent to the government to cover taxes or other obligations.

yay pookie! congrats!

like it's crazy
i've heard great things about UVA! I visited upenn and hated it so much / felt so uncomfy there and the starbucks by campus got robbed while i was there waiting for my tour to start lol
@OptimisticOutlier That sounds terrible, I'm sorry you had to experience that lol. Can I ask what made you feel uncomfortable? Like the sketchy vibes of the city or like the camp\us itself etc.?
penn is in a nice area
right next to drexel
it was campus itself, honestly i can't explain what it actually is. I felt the same way when I was touring schools for undergrad, pretty much pulled up to upenn and told my mom i knew i didn't like it and didn't need to take the tour lol
would argue with the nice area piece lol i think all of philly is kinda scary, someone pulled a gun on my team while we were down for a football game at upenn and walking around at night
but that said, i'm pretty happy i moved to pa after school and i know lots of people love upenn!
dear god is that sketchy
definetly safer than how its being described
people are absolutely crwzy
yeah yeah will 10000% agree i've had like bad outlier experiences lol
