The Tax Relief Act was signed into law by President Obama on December 17, 2010. Followings Q&A will help you better understand the payroll tax cut.

[b]Q 1: What are the changes caused by recent Tax Relief? [/b]
A: For Year 2011, the employee tax rate for social security is reduced to 4.2%. The employer tax rate for social security remains unchanged at 6.2%.

[b]Q 2: Are all employers affected by this payroll tax cut?[/b]

A: Yes, all employers are impacted by this change from Jan 1, 2011. Both for-profit companies and nonprofit companies need to adjust their payroll processing for the Social Security tax rate.

[b]Q 3: What should employers do?[/b]
A: The IRS recognizes that the late enactment of these changes makes it difficult for many employers to quickly update their withholding systems.

[b]IRS asked that employers should start using the new withholding tables and reducing the amount of Social Security tax withheld as soon as possible in 2011 but not later than Jan. 31, 2011[/b].

For any Social Security tax over withheld during January, employers should make an offsetting adjustment in workers’ pay as soon as possible but not later than March 31, 2011.

Employers and payroll companies will handle the withholding changes, so workers typically won’t need to take any additional action, such as filling out a new W-4 withholding form.

[b]Q 4: What impact will this have on employees?[/b]
A: Millions of workers will see their take-home pay rise during 2011 because the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 provides a two percentage point payroll tax cut for employees, reducing their Social Security tax withholding rate from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent of wages paid. This reduced Social Security withholding will have no effect on the employee’s future Social Security benefits.

[b]Q 5: Where employers can find latest income tax table.[/b]A: Employer can find Year 2011 Federal Income Tax Tables at [url]http://www.halfpricesoft.com/Federal_income_tax_2011.asp[/url]
