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).
"Ordinary income" means all income except capital gains. Social Security is only deducted from covered wages and self-employment. It is not deducted from interest, rents, ro…yalties, pensions, and other types of ordinary income.
When calculating my tax refund and I am asked to enter the amount of federal taxes paid does that also include withholdings for medicare and social security?
No. Only INCOME Tax estimated or wittholding...payments made toward INCOME tax that you are calculating. By the way, Medicare/SS are considered insurance payments.
If you are exempt from federal taxes because you qualify for foreign earned income Publication 54 do you still pay Medicare and social security taxes?
Rather than risk getting yourself into tax problems with the IRS by asking for anonymous and non-legally binding tax advice on this venue, you should really call the IRS… 800 number and get the OFFICIAL answer.
Death usually stops taxes pretty well. If you earn income (which includes receiving a pension), expect to pay taxes on it for as long as you are alive. ans The above may be co…rrect for income taxes, but NOT nessasarilarly for FICA/Medicare, which are actually considered insurance. Your age, and if your collecting any benefit already, and if you get an increased beenfit with additional earnings are all factors to answering this.
Yes. Social Security and Medicare are taken out of your income before you see your paycheck. Your employer also pays an additional Social Security and Medicare tax to your acc…ount.
The amount that will be withheld from the employee gross pay by your employer would still be 7.65% the same amount as it was for the tax year 2010. You should get this informa…tion from your employer's payroll department as they will be the one that would know how much FICA, federal income tax, state income, local taxes, etc they will have to withhold from your gross bonuses before they print your check for your net take home pay.
There is no income threshold for Medicare taxes. While the 6.2% Social Security tax is only deducted from the first $106,800 of gross income, you continue paying 1.45% for Med…icare on all wages earned.
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.
No, it is a separately stated withholding that you see half of the withholding. Your company pays the other half.
Social Security is funded by FICA; Medicare is funded by Medicare tax.
What is responsible for collecting federal taxes including personal and corporate income Social Security excise estate and gift taxes?

This depends on what your other income is besides your Social Security Income. Dependent on your filing status and other income your Social Security Income can very likely… be partially taxable. Up to a maximum of 85% of your Social Security income can be taxable on your Federal Tax Return.
