Social Security Tax Reduction

by Breedlove December 21, 2010

A special holiday gift from the IRS!

The 2011 Social Security tax for employees will drop from 6.2% to 4.2%, allowing employees to keep more of their earnings.  Please note that this change is only for employees -- the employer's tax rate has not changed.  Also, it will only last until the end of 2011, so enjoy it while it lasts!
