I concur, this is still considered income earned from employment and includable in the SS tax base. Yes, bonus payments, in fact virtually anything received of value, are t…he same as cash or any other income received from your employer for tax purposes. It is simply an 'Income' and therefore subject to income based taxes. (Depending on your particular plan, it may or may not be available for 401k matching). No - you didn't discover some strange loophole (because they don't exist) - like the calling a payment something other than salary makes it not income and not taxable! (If you did, it would be corrected by law and regulation in like 1 minute!)
While there are some special situations (allowing them to not pay self employment portion), generally a minister is like any other employee or worker. Failure to timely pay ca…n and will incur a penalty. See: . Publication 517, Social Security and Other Information for Members of the Clergy and Religious Workers . http://www.irs.gov/publications/p517/index.html For income tax purposes, a licensed, commissioned, or ordained minister is generally treated as a common law employee of his or her church, denomination, or sect. There are, however, some exceptions such as traveling evangelists who may be treated as independent contractors. If you are a minister performing ministerial services, you are taxed on wages, offerings, and fees you receive for performing marriages, baptismals, and/or funerals.
Yes, plus Medicare tax. FICA is the acronym for the Federal Insurance Contributions Act.
No. You only pay FICA taxes on earned income (wages, salary); paying on Social Security benefits would amount to paying the same tax twice.
The self-employed and workers in covered occupations (nearly all of them) plus the employers of the workers.
Taxes deducted from an employee's earnings to finance social security and medicare benefits are called FICA taxes?
YES that is correct. FICA stands for "Federal Insurance Contributions Act." It's the tax withheld from your salary or self-employment income that funds the Social Security and… Medicare programs.The (OASDI) Old Age Survivor and Disability Insurance (FICA) (social security and Medicare taxes) all mean the same tax for social security benefits (SSB or SSDI). All mean the same thing.
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 ma…y be correct 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.
To be clear, not payments from it, they match all contributions to it.

T…he (OASDI) Old Age Survivor and Disability Insurance (FICA) (social security and Medicare taxes) all mean the same tax for social security benefits (SSB or SSDI). All mean the same thing. The taxes are paid to the UNITED STATES TREASURY DEPARTMENT.
The Social Security tax is 6.2 percent and the Medicare tax is 1.45 percent of your annual income How much would you pay per year to FICA if your annual earnings were 47000?
Adding the Medicare tax of 1.45% and the Social Security Tax of 6.2% together, the total is 7.65%. 7.65% of $47,000 is $3,595.50 that you would pay each year.
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.
Yes, most working people are required to pay this tax. Not wanting to would not be a very good reason to not pay into this program (OASDI) Old Age Survivor and Disability I…nsurance (FICA) (social security and Medicare taxes) all mean the same tax.
Yes FICA is the same thing. The (OASDI) Old Age Survivor and Disability Insurance (FICA) (social security and Medicare taxes) all mean the same tax for social security benefit…s (SSB or SSDI). All mean the same thing.
The payroll tax for Medicare is Medicare. The payroll tax for Social Security is FICA.
Yes, bonuses are like wages. They are subject to the same income and Medicare taxes.
