Generally known as FICA taxes, after the Federal Insurance Contribution Act, these taxes are imposed on wages paid to employees to fund Social Security benefits for employees. Both the employer and the employee must pay FICA tax on an employee's annual wages from the employer up to the Social Security taxable wage base. This tax is divided into 2 components: Medicare and the Old Age Survivors and Disability Insurance (OASDI) component.
