HR Fast Facts: Increase in Massachusetts State Income Withholding
The State of Massachusetts subtracts withholdings for FICA (Social Security and Medicare) taxes from employees' gross taxable wages before calculating their MA personal income withholdings. If an employee reaches the wage limit for Social Security withholdings, they'll have no more Social Security withholdings. As a result, their taxable wages will be greater, and therefore their personal income withholding will increase.
