Regardless of the state in which you are employed, FICA taxes, comprising Social Security and Medicare taxes, are mandatory. These taxes entail your employer deducting 6.2% of your earnings for Social Security and 1.45% for Medicare from each paycheck. Additionally, your employer matches these amounts, effectively doubling the contributions. If you’re self-employed, you’re responsible for paying the full 12.4% for Social Security and 2.9% for Medicare, albeit you can later claim half of these self-employment taxes as deductions.

For individuals filing as single, heads of household, and qualifying widows (er)s, any income exceeding $200,000 is subject to a 0.9% Medicare surtax, not matched by employers. Married couples filing jointly face this surtax on income exceeding $250,000, while those filing separately incur it on earnings surpassing $125,000.
