Your Salary and Paycheck
There is no maximum amount of money you can earn. You will most likely be paid weekly or sometimes twice per month – check with your employer. You will always receive less than your “gross” salary, as there will be taxes and/ or deductions taken out of each check.
Your employer should give you a salary statement, pay stub or pay slip with each paycheck, which will explain exactly what was taken out. It is wise to save these pay stubs and take them home with you to assist with your taxes.
Taxes you do pay, and taxes you do not pay
As a foreign student working in the U.S., you will be required to pay certain taxes, but will be exempt from other taxes.
