Note that most employers will typically withhold too much federal tax from a part-year salary, because withholding is typically based on the tax rate for an annualized projection of each pay period. You should ask to have less tax withheld if you will be working for only part of the year, such as the summer. IRS Publication 15-T describes the procedure for adjusting withholding for part-year employees on page 35. It's up to you to request this in writing from your employer, and it's up to the employer to do the alternate calculation and charge the correct withholding.
