Washington, D.C. – The Internal Revenue Service today released instructions to help employers implement the 2011 cut in payroll taxes, along with new income-tax withholding tables that employers will use during 2011.
Millions of workers will see their take-home pay rise during 2011 because the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act Of 2010 provides a two percentage point payroll tax cut for employees, reducing their Social Security tax withholding rate from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent of wages paid. This reduced Social Security withholding will have no effect on the employee’s future Social Security benefits.

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist
The economic data were mixed, but generally consistent with a continued expansion. Retail sales rose more than expected in November, while figures for September and October were revised higher. Industrial production rose moderately, as a drop in auto production was offset by gains in other manufacturing sectors. Residential construction figures were mixed, but single-family activity improved. Consumer inflation figures remained low.
As expected, the Federal Open Market Committee left the target range for the overnight lending rate unchanged (at 0% to 0.25%), kept it’s conditional commitment to keep short-term rates low for “an extended period,” and did not alter its asset purchase plans ($600 billion by the end of Q211). In its economic assessment, the FOMC noted that the recovery “is continuing,” but “at a rate that has been insufficient to bring down unemployment.” Congress approved the tax cut package. European debt worries continued to simmer. «Read the rest of this article»
