What are FICA taxes and why do some employees not pay this type of tax?
The Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) provides for a federal system of old-age, survivors, disability and hospital insurance. FICA is a federal payroll tax deducted from your paycheck. Old-age, survivors and disability insurance are financed by the Social Security tax. Medicare taxes fund hospital insurance. Each of these taxes is paid separately. The two components are FICA tax, which is 6.2% of all applicable wages, and Old-Age Disability Insurance, which is 1.45% of all applicable wages. Exceptions to this deduction include students working for a university whose main goal in to obtain an education.
Why is the amount listed on my W-2 different than my annual salary?
The year-to-date earnings on your check stub are the actual amounts that you earned during the calendar year. Not all of your earnings are taxable. Some of your deductions, such as annuities and medical insurance, are made before taxes. These deductions reduce your taxable income. The amount on your W-2 is the federal taxable earnings.
What is a 1042-S?
This tax document is provided to employees who have a qualifying treaty with the U.S.
"The United States has income tax treaties with a number of foreign countries. Under these treaties, residents (not necessarily citizens) of foreign countries are taxed at a reduced rate, or are exempt from U.S. income taxes on certain items of income they receive from sources within the United States. These reduced rates and exemptions vary among countries and specific items of income.”
