    No. You are taxed on the aggregate of your gross pay less anything that can be excluded pretax. If you do have a lot of OT you may get pushed into a higher tax bracket and so a larger percentage may be taken out. Work the OT, pay the taxes and don't bother worrying about it as its a small difference in the grand scheme of things. Enjoy the extra money.

    I believe that, after 10 hours overtime you get taxed at a higher rate.

    Yup. The tax rate on overtime hours is higher than the tax rate on regular working hours. No idea why...it just is.

    No, should be the same as working regular hours!
