Payroll Tax Deferment

What goes up must come down… Your paycheck went up in September 2020 and it will come down in January 2021. From September-December the department of defense military and civilian employees’ social security payroll tax is deferred until January 2021. Beginning in January 2021 these employees will be paying double the normal social security payroll tax through April 2021. Save what this tax would be now (6.2% of base pay) so you have the money to pay your expenses later. Save now to pay later.
