Payroll Tax Rate Changes

Important!

We're informing you about an important upcoming payroll tax rate change. The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 extended the employee 2% FICA tax rate reduction through the end of 2012.  Under current law, this temporary reduction expired at the end of December 2012. 

What does this mean to you?

  • Effective for the January 10th pay check your FICA tax rate will increase 2% from 4.2 to 6.2%, thus lowering your net pay amount accordingly.
  • Staff members who have direct deposit please review your pay stub and note your new net pay amount.
