On August 28, 2020, the IRS issued Notice 2020-65, allowing employers to temporarily defer withholding the employee’s portion of Social Security payroll taxes for pay periods starting Sept 1 through Dec 31, 2020, as directed by an Executive Order issued by President Donald Trump. Unless Congress passes additional legislation forgiving the repayment of this tax deferral, employees would be required to repay the taxes by doubling the employee’s Social Security tax paycheck withholding to 12.4 percent during the first four months of 2021.
Canyon ISD has decided not to stop the withholding of Social Security taxes from employees’ pay at this time. This decision was made due to the administrative challenges of implementing changes to our Munis payroll software on such short notice as well our concerns that this would potentially impose a financial burden on our employees during the first four months of 2021.In the event that Congress passes legislation forgiving the tax repayment or the Treasury Department issues guidance regarding the ability of employees to make individual choices regarding participation in this tax deferral, we will reassess this decision and employees will be promptly notified of changes, if any.Should you have any further questions, please contact Beth Wilson at 806-677-2666 or at email@example.com.
