Gain knowledge on severance pay.
As a payroll professional you already know that any cash or noncash remuneration received for employment, unless specifically exempt, is considered wages subject to the FICA tax. The U.S. Supreme Court says severance payments are wages and are subject to regular FICA taxes. The Supreme Court reasons that such payments are paid as remuneration for employment so they are wages. This video examines examples of non-FICA wages and how to determine those wages.
