A pay stub is part of a paycheck that lists details about the employee’s pay. It itemizes the wages earned for the pay period and year-to-date payroll. The pay stub also shows taxes and other deductions taken out of an employee’s earnings. And, the pay stub shows the amount the employee actually receives (net pay).
You can give your employees an electronic or printed pay stub. In some states, you are required to provide pay stubs. The information you must include on a pay stub varies by state. You can keep a copy of each payroll stub for your payroll records.
