Tax Withholding Changes for 2013
There have been a few changes to tax withholding for 2013. For those making less than $113,700 per year, the only change is an immediate increase in Social Security tax. When the temporary tax cut of 2011--12 expired at the end of December, the Social Security rate reverted to 6.2%, up from 4.2%. The new tax rate was first reflected in the January 9 biweekly pay.

Questions about withholding may be directed to Kirk Tolliver, HR information manager, at 481-6679. For more information about 2013 changes in tax withholding, please refer to the article that appeared in Purdue Today on January 11.
