Last year, my husband worked for about 9 months for an employer, and then changed jobs toward the end of the year. He never looked too closely at his check stubs (unfortunately) and unbeknownst to him, the 1st employer (whom he worked for most of the year) did not withhold any income tax from his paychecks. We didn't discover this fact until he received his W-2 and realized there was no amount in the box marked income tax withheld. My husband was able to find a few of his paystubs from that employer, and sure enough, the employer only withheld FICA and social security taxes from his paychecks. I realize that my husband will be responsible for paying the income tax that was never paid in throughout the year, but does his former employer have any responsibilty in this? Aren't employers required by law to withhold income taxes from employees pay? Any information anyone can provide about this would be great! We are very upset about this situation and are COMPLETELY unprepared to have to pay almost a whole year's worth of taxes.
