MAXIMUM WAGES SUBJECT TO SOCIAL SECURITY
The social security tax applies to the first $94,200 you make in 2006. The rate is 6.2% of the first $ 94,200 or $ 5840.40. If you make $100,000 in 2006, the last $ 5800 you earn should have no withholding of social security—only the Medicare portion (1.45%) should be withheld.
WHAT IF YOU WORK FOR TWO OR MORE EMPLOYERS?
If you work for two employers and make $ 50,000 on each job, the second employer does not know what you made on the first job, so he would not stop withholding. In that case, you will be able to claim the excess withheld on line 67 of your form 1040. That amount will reduce any other tax you may owe or increase your refund.
WHAT IF YOU ONLY WORK FOR ONE EMPOYER:
The employer SHOULD stop withholding when you max out. If he doesn’t he should correct the error and refund the excess withheld. If he fails to correct the error, you can claim the refund by filing Form 873.
