How do you calculate for Social Security tax?
If you're an employee, the calculation is pretty simple. First, write down (or type into a calculator) the lower of your total wages or $127,200. Then, multiply this number by 6.2% (0.062) to calculate your Social Security tax. If you're self-employed, write down the lower of your net business income (this is line 31 on IRS Schedule C) or $127,200.
