Late Breaking News
Payroll tax cut extended to the end of 2012
Under the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012, enacted on February 22, 2012, workers will continue to receive larger paychecks for the rest of this year based on a lower social security tax withholding rate of 4.2 percent, which is two percentage points less than the 6.2 percent rate in effect prior to 2011. This reduced rate, originally in effect for all of 2011, was extended through the end of February by the Temporary Payroll Tax Cut Continuation Act of 2011, enacted Dec. 23.
No action is required by workers to continue receiving the payroll tax cut. As before, the lower rate will have no effect on workers' future Social Security benefits. The reduction in revenues to the Social Security Trust Fund will be made up by transfers from the General Fund.
