Does federal income tax bracket include Social security Medicare deductions?
On the federal tax schedule does the amount due include the Social security and medicare contributions?
No. The schedules are for the Federal income tax only. (To start - FICA contributions are considered more an insurance and retirement payment, not a tax -(it is earmarked and… not available as part of ordinary US Treasury funds, and the "income" that it is based off of is defined entirely different than that for Income Tax. Many people have very large incomes but owe no SS, or can have no taxable income - after losses and deductions, and still owe and have substantial FICA contribution income).
Is Self employment tax included in the normal federal income tax bracket for the self employed or is it separate?
Self-employment tax is separate from income tax. Self-employment tax is actually the Social Security and Medicare taxes on self-employment income. The tax rate for …Social Security is 12.4%. The tax rate for Medicare is 2.9%. When you are employed by another person, one-half of your Social Security and Medicare taxes are withheld from your gross wages. The other half is paid by your employer. When you are self-employed, you are both the employee and the employer, and must pay 100% of the Social Security and Medicare taxes due on your self-employment income. These taxes often come as a major shock to the newly self-employed. SE income is usually calculated on Form 1040 Schedule C. SE tax is calculated on Form 1040 Schedule SE.

Yes, you may have to pay income tax if your modified adjusted gross income is $25,000 or more for a single person, or $32,000 or more for a couple filing jointly. Social Secur…ity benefits are taxed at 0%, 50% or 85% (see below), depending on your total taxable income. If you are retired or disabled and Social Security benefits are your only source of income, you will need to file, but generally will not be taxed. If you received income from sources other than Social Security, your benefits will not be taxed unless your modified adjusted gross income is more than the base amount for your filing status. For a single taxpayer, If your total AGI is less than $25,000, you pay tax on 0% of your benefits.If your total AGI is $25-34,000, you pay tax on 50% of your benefitsIf your total AGI is above $34,000, you pay tax on 85% of your benefits For a married couple filing jointly, If the total AGI is less than $32,000, you pay tax on 0% of your benefits.If your total AGI is $32-$44,000, you pay tax on 50% of your benefitsIf your total AGI is above $44,000, you pay tax on 85% of your benefits You can do the following quick computation to determine whether some of your benefits may be taxable: First, add one-half of the total Social Security benefits you received to all your other income, including any tax exempt interest and other exclusions from income. Next, compare this total to the base amount for your filing status, if the total is more than your base amount, then 50% or 85% of your benefits may be taxable.

Wages subject to FICA is defined slightly differently than for other purposes, so so…methings may be considered (or ignored) for FICA compared to your "salary".

What is the total percentage of income that will be withheld from employee's paycheck for Social Security and Medicare taxes?
A total of 7.65% of your pre-tax income (6.2% for Social Security and 1.45% for Medicare Hospital benefits) is withheld from each paycheck until you reach the current earnings… cap of $106,800. There is no earnings cap for the 1.45% Medicare Hospitalization contribution. Your employer pays a matching amount from company funds, bringing the total contribution on your behalf to 15.3% of the first $106,800 of salary. If you earn less than the maximum, you can easily calculate your total annual contribution by multilplying your base salary x .0765. For example: A person who earns $35,000 in 2010 will contribute $2,677.50 toward future retirement benefits, and his or her company would match that contribution for a total of $5,355.
