Addressing the 0.9% Medicare Tax on Wages for Employees Earning Over $200k, and Income Tax Withholding Complications Triggered by Requests from Employees for Withholding to Cover the New 3.8% Medicare Tax on Unearned Income
October 20, 2013 | 6:10 pm

This session addresses both the withholding requirements (and difficulty of correcting mistakes) triggered by the new (in 2013) additional Medicare tax on certain high-wage earning employees. In both regulations and FAQs, the IRS has addressed many, but not all of the issues presented by this new tax. Also covered is the expected year-end requests from many highly compensated employees for withholding to cover their liability for the 3.8% Medicare tax on unearned income, and why these requests may be difficult to meet, given the withholding rules applicable to supplemental wages, and the requirements for requesting withholding changes on Forms W-4. In addition, the speaker discusses pending proposals to allow withholding on directors' compensation.
