Best Answer

Yes, I have to pay federal taxes on my NC state retirement but not state income tax. Not all of my social security is taxable, depending on my adjusted income. The amount of social security that is subject to taxation is on a sliding scale. A more complete answer can be found at:

What is the income called that you take home after taxes are taken from your paycheck?

It's called your Net Pay... So that's what's left after taxes and everything else has been taken out of your gross pay. The Gross Pay is your full check IF nothing had been taken out of it. However, no one gets all of their Gross Pay on payday, because SS, taxes, and other deductions are withheld on your behalf.

Can you have more Social Security Tax taken out of your check?

No....considering first that your employer pays half of the required contribution, and the way it is calculated and the way that is all reported would have to tie in mathamatically. I gather you would like to report and pay on higher social security ages to have a higher SS benefit on retirement. Not at all sure that would be an advised way to get the financial benefit your after. SS contribution is 15.30 % of SS wages, which if your employed the employer must pay half, and if self employed you pay all. A string retirement contribution amount. If you reported additional self emplyment income, it would also be income tax income, and state tax, that really wouldn't work either.

Are social security taxes taken out of a persons check when they reach age 65?

As long as a person works, they continue to pay "wage taxes", even if decide to start collecting SS while they are working.This is neither silly or unfair, since, as each year they continue to pay into the system, the higher their benefit goes up, so that they may see an increase in their SS beyond any cost of living increase.I am assuming by a person's "check", you meant a paycheck. If she just receives a SS check, no, the only taxes taken out is the Federal Income Tax, if she requests it.
