Payroll Taxes Deferral Memorandum
12/28/2020

Payroll Tax Deferral for Federal Workers and Servicemembers

For those opting into the White House’s employee-side payroll tax deferral, the repayment deadline has been extended from April 2021 to December 31, 2021, lengthening the repayment period for those taxpayers. This means less money comes out of each paycheck until all deferred taxes are paid back.

Federal employees and military members will have an easier time paying back the Social Security taxes that have been deferred from their paychecks over the last three months, thanks to a provision tucked inside the massive omnibus spending package Congress unveiled Monday afternoon. The provision will allow those subject to the president’s payroll tax deferral to pay back the deferred taxes — worth 6.2% of their income — throughout the entire year of 2021.

The general plan, according to federal payroll providers, was for employees to begin paying the deferred taxes back between January and April 2021. Now, federal employees and servicemembers will have 12 months instead of the original four to repay previously deferred taxes.

Collection of 2020 Social Security Tax Deferral

At the end of December, the 2020 Social Security tax deferral will end. Beginning January 2021, the normal 6.2% Social Security tax withholdings will again be deducted and you will also see an additional deduction for the deferred 2020 Social Security tax collection taken from your pay.
