    Not true.

    Plain and simple

    I'd you disagree, cite your source.

    No problem, give him my contact info via this site. BTW- You need a smarter CPA ...or at least one who knows what is going on.

    Same exact thing happened to me. Got a raise in late November 2012, and after the social security increase in January 2013, I now make 3 dollars less than I made before I got the raise.

    in other words, obama raised the fica tax.

    if gas costs $4/gal last year, went down to $3/gal this year, then goes back up to $4/gal; did the gas prise rise or just go back to the normal price?

    I just re-read most of the thread and I get where you are coming from. I guess your point is that for wage earners the only .gov tax change they would see so far this year is the 2% thing. That's great and all but it's gets bad from here on out.


    ETA - and some of us are paying at a new and higher rate. I assure you I know what I'm talking about.

    I haven't had a raise in 6 years. In fact, I've had about a 6% pay cut in that time. Luckily, my wife works for a good company and has had about 8-10% annual raises for the past 8 years.
