FICA and Medicare Tax

This allows for configuring the FICA and Medicare rates for the current employer. This is only available when Advanced is selected as the Editor Mode.


Note: The FICA and Medicare rates have default system values. To access them close the Employer File Editor and select File/Config from the ribbon bar and select Employer in the navigator on the left.
The best method for employers whose employees do not pay life insurance is to uncheck the FICA taxation in the Visible Fields tab rather than override the FICA value. When it is not visible, the FICA field will not be displayed for the Paycheck values.
