Important! Medical Resident FICA Tax Refunds FAQ
Potential Future FICA Refund Claims (after March 31, 2005)
On January 11, 2011, the Supreme Court held that Medical residents are employees for purposes of the FICA tax. The 8-0 decision upheld treasury regulations issued by the Treasury Department that wages earned by medical residents working 40 hours or more per week are subject to FICA taxes. This decision applies only to quarters beginning after March 31, 2005; it does not effect a former resident's potential right to a refund for quarters previous to April 1, 2005 as discussed in the FAQ above.
