WASHINGTON, D.C. -- If you received your first paycheck of 2013, you may have noticed that the Federal Government took a little more than usual.
That is because the two-year Payroll Tax holiday is over.
The end of the tax break means higher taxes for all wage earners.
In 2009, the Social Security Payroll Tax was temporarily decreased to 4.2 percent... Monday that rate went back up to 6.2 percent.
So if you're making $30,000 a year, you'll pay about $50 more a month in taxes.
