Important FICA Notice

Please do not to use the combined employer liability for the federal FICA SS and FICA Med.  When setting up the payroll items, please use the FICA SS employer and FICA Med employer items found in the tax control.  The FICA employer does not honor the wage base rules for the cap of FICA SS or the additional withholding of FICA Med.  It does not follow calculations for exclusion of deductions exempt from taxes.

If you decide to use this item, you may need to overwrite the amount calculated on paychecks when the amounts do not match the FICA Med and FICA SS items in the employee taxes.
