Does one pay fica taxes over 70 years of age?
That is correct, exept that the employer pays a portion of your FICA, whereas when you are Self-employed you are hit with the full amount. Of course you have the advanta…ges of being able to deduct all of your business expenses. More information below from IRS.gov " Self-employment tax (SE tax) is a social security and Medicare tax primarily for individuals who work for themselves. It is similar to the social security and Medicare taxes withheld from the pay of most wage earners. You figure SE tax yourself using Schedule SE (Form 1040). Social security and Medicare taxes of most wage earners are figured by their employers. Also you can deduct half of your SE tax in figuring your adjusted gross income. Wage earners cannot deduct social security and Medicare taxes." Hope this helps. Roger Hadad, Effectur Inc, www.irs101.blogspot.com
Yes. Since 1983 government employees arecovered by SS/Fica like everyone else...and pay into it like everyone else. Before that (and still in some States and areas)…, they were allowed to contribute to and are/were covered by a program that is virtually identical to SS/FICA...minor differences, but nothing substantial really. More in name than anything.
There are no special rules for home sales for people over 55. There used to be various special rules for seniors who sold their houses and for ordinary people who sold their… houses and bought new houses. They were all repealed in 1997 and replaced with a single exemption for everyone of any age: If the house you sold was your main home for two of the five previous years and you owned the house for two of the previous five years, the first $250,000 of profits (capital gains) is exempt from tax. If you file jointly and the house was also the main home of your spouse for two of the previous five years, the exemption increases from $250,000 to $500,000. A reduced exemption may be available if you lived in and owned the house for a shorter period of time but were forced to move due to circumstance beyond your control. There is a two year waiting period after you claim the exemption before you can claim it again. You do not have to be any special age and you do not have to buy a new house. You can do anything you want with the proceeds of the sale.
No. You only pay FICA taxes on earned income (wages, salary); paying on Social Security benefits would amount to paying the same tax twice.
Do I have to pay FICA and medicare tax on my pension if I retire early at age 55 and not working? No. A pension, like IRA and 401k distributions, is not considered earned inc…ome. You do pay income tax, but not FICA (Social Security and Medicare), on those sources.

Yes, unless you qualify for elderly or senior citizen real estate tax relief provided by some states. Each state in the United States has different tax laws concerning elderly… or senior citizen tax relief.

Not if your income is below $25,000 per year for a single person, or below $32,000 per year for a couple filing jointly. Payment is based total taxable income, not age.
