Payroll Tax Increase

By on | No Comments

Question: Is the 2% payroll tax increase for 2013 part of Obamacare?

Answer: No. It has nothing to do with Obamacare. Actually, FICA payroll taxes were cut 2% in 2011 and 2012. That cut will expire, effective Jan. 1, 2013. Although the increase is on employee contributions, the increase also affects an employer’s withholding obligations.
