Half is paid by employers, the other half by employees. If you are self-employed, you get to pay both halves.
2008: $2 million; 2009: $3.5 million; 2010: no estate taxes, so not required; 2011 and thereafter: $1 million.
Absolutely, and many more things concerning payroll, etc...adhereing to the rules for this. And of course, people are rerquired to make estimated payments toward th…eir eventual tax liability (through withholding or other means, all absolutely completely described), or face substantial penalties, interest and other problems.
No. No until he's contacted by the IRS to garnish your wages.
To be clearer...all employers who have payroll tax responsibilities - Yes...and of course there is probably some weird exception, for some type of Church or such....who has a…n obligaion to provide something similar (of course these may not be standardly taxable type entities in many respects)
Tennesee if that's what you mean....has no control over the Federal process (hey..it is a state..a fiarly wimpy one at that - it is always trumped by federal regs)...and the f…ederal process allows, and in fact for many legal reasons requires, that the option to file as joint or singular is entirely at your discretion.
The Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) provides for payments from employees and employers to fund Social Security benefits for elderly and disabled persons.
A zillion..depending on their business. Most are simply invisible to either employees or customers...simply a cost of doing business. What payroll taxes do they pay...sam…e answer. Most to the benefit of the employee. Most predominate is the half of FICA they pay, appox. @7.65% of your salary. And of course it also depends on what you mean by taxes. But unemployment, disability, workers comp would be just some of the others. Agreeably, some are at the State level, or even more local. and some have both a State & Federal component. Standard generalization is that payroll tax and benefits amounts to an additional @30% of the base pay.
Is an employ required to file only an annual tax report on an employer?
Probably not but you should get this information from your employers payroll department. The payments may not be subject to income tax but could be subject to the social secur…ity and medicare tax taxes.
No. If you mean state regulated Workers' Compensation coverage, (and don't have it confused with Social Security) the Federal government does not mandate anything about the sy…stem and certainly does not require employees to contribute.
You cannot stop paying into the FICA fund as long as your are a US Citizen or resident alien and have any earned income form providing your services to earn the income.
Your income must be 58000 or less to file your federal income taxes for free. If your income is higher then you cannot file them for free from e-file.
What you need to file your taxes is your W-2 form and any other tax forms and records that you need to accurately report income and expenses if itemizing. Your W-2 form has th…e employers federal and state identification numbers on the form. In every software program for tax return preparation it does require that all the information on the W-2 form is entered into the software. The danger in trying to file your return without the W-2 form is that all the information is needed and if you put in any data that is not on your actual form when received, you will probably have an incorrect refund or amount die and this will require you to file an amendment in order to correct this outcome. Why not just wait the extra week for your forms to come to you.
