Thanks for your responses. I think I was deliberately vague, because my employer didn't take out either Federal OR DC taxes. They say that my first paycheck (which only represented two days) wasn't high enough to warrant taking federal taxes out. I'm not sure that that is right, but I think it's something they are going to correct.

Your employer is probably correct regarding federal taxes. Their payroll system probably looked at your two days of salary as if it was your regular salary for the full payroll period.
