$95,000 cumulative + $3000 current week = $98,000 Since the $98,000 is over the maximum social security limit of $97,500, you calculate the social security as follows: Social Security: $97,500 - $95,000 = $2500 ($2500)(0.062) = $1550 This is the social security tax Medicare: ($3000)(0.0145) = $43.50 This is the medicare tax since there is no maximum limit
