Social Security and Medicare Tax for 2016

The Social Security (OASDI) tax rate is 6.20% on earnings up to the applicable taxable maximum amount of $118,500 (same as 2015 tax year).

The Medicare tax rate is 1.45% on all earnings.  Therefore, there is no maximum employee or employer contribution amount for Medicare.

Employees receiving income in excess of $200,000 will be subject to an additional Medicare Tax of 0.9%.

Employers only match the combined Social Security and Medicare tax rate of 7.65%.  Employers do not match the Additional Medicare Tax.
