I pay what...

So normally I just accept that my company pays me, just as my company accepts
that I turn up to work. Therefore I never actually check my payslips.

Tonight though I looked on line to see if my w2 form was available, and I'll get my
turbo tax return in early. It wasn't but I did notice that my payslips for the year
fluctuated. Since about say June somehow I've been paying nearly $200 a month
on "Washington, D.C. Income Tax".

I don't live in Washington, I don't even work there, I live and work in Virginia, and
I pay "Virginia Income Tax". So why the hell am I paying DC tax when I have
nothing at all to do with DC ??
