Excess Social Security and Self-Employment Income

In 2009 I had two jobs that resulted in excess social security being withheld. I understand how to get a refund for this excess. BUT in October I started my own consulting business and am required to pay self-employment tax of 13.3 percent on my income. Isn't a portion of this (say 6.2%) also excess social security tax? Shouldn't I be able to also ger the refund for that?


The forms don't provide for this and I have searched instructions which don't address it.

Thanks!

Excess Social Security Tax Withheld

When I filed last year I did not know that too much Social Security Tax had been withheld. Is it too late to get that back?

Income Taxes on Social Security

I am currently at retirement age Dec 7, 2018. Next year, but I am going to start getting my social security check next Feb 2018. I am also going to continue to work at my now job also until I complete retirement end of next year.

I will be drawing $1,282.00 monthly, and last year I made at my job $36,617.73 and should not make much more than that this year.
So I was needing to know how much income taxes I need to have taken out of my social security check each month to cover income taxes on it?

Social Security

by Mary
(GA)

I am working at a university as a part time lecturer. I started working there at age 63 which made me ineligible for the college savings/retirement program. In the last year and a half I have earned $22,420 that is not paid into social security. I understand that the college is not obligated to pay Social security but is there a way to have this amount and future pay credited to my social security?

Social Security at Age 62

I just started drawing social security at age 62 in Dec. of 2011. I do not have other income other than my monthly pension from GE. My wife still works at GE.

She makes around $41000 a year. My pension is around $22000 a year. Is there any way to keep from paying tax on my social security at the end of the year? If not how will it be taxed?

Social Security Tax

As an employer, we withheld $5.85 too much social security from an employee due to a miscalc on group term life insurance--does a w-2c need to be issued, or can credit be taken on their tax return for this overpayment? The employee does not hit the SS limit--wages are 70,000.
