NEW: @SenSchumer and @RonWyden begin the process of overturning Trump’s payroll tax scheme through the Congressional Review Act, citing the “abruptly-announced imposition” on employees and failure to undergo notice-and-comment. pic.twitter.com/FwVW1flfDj

Trump’s executive memo on Aug. 8 involved deferring, for workers making less than $100,000 a year, the 6.2% Social Security tax taken out of paychecks. The deferment would last from Sept. 1 to Dec. 31 and taxes would have to be paid back over the course of the first four months of 2021. House Republicans introduced a bill Friday to forgive the deferred taxes, according to a report from The Hill. Trump said in multiple campaign speeches that he would forgive the taxes if he gets reelected, and there are discussions at the White House of him signing another executive action that the administration says would make the deferment more effective, as reported by The Washington Post on Wednesday.

How could the holiday impact Social Security funding?  The president said in a press briefing on Aug. 12 that Social Security will receive funding from the General Fund, which is the country’s account to pay for the daily operations of the government. What happens after the holiday will seemingly depend on who wins the upcoming election. Trump said he would consider removing the payroll tax in January of next year. 

What were the rules before COVID-19? Prior to the passage of the CARES Act, you couldn’t take money out of your retirement accounts before you were 59 1/2 years of age without getting hit with an “early withdrawal” charge. The 10% tax penalty was put in place to dissuade people from spending money that they should be saving for retirement.

‘You’re always looking to see if there’s somebody that can bring something extra and help the guys already here, so we’ll keep working in that regard but the most important thing is to help the guys we’ve got take the next step.’

‘I can understand why he was a young captain (at Southampton), I can understand why he was so respected at Liverpool. From the short time we’ve seen him and worked with him, he’s been fantastic for us.’

Have there been other payroll tax cuts?  In 2011 and 2012, Congress approved a 2% payroll tax holiday for Social Security. This was intended to keep the George H.W. Bush-era tax cuts while also providing more funds to taxpayers in hopes of stimulating the economy. The result was a $10 billion loss per month to Social Security. 

There were weaknesses of course. The way the Leeds artillery advanced, flooding the Liverpool penalty area with players, left Phillips terribly stranded and overrun at times. For periods, there was not really a Leeds midfield to speak of. 

The payroll tax deferment was one of the four executive actions Trump signed on Aug. 8, with the other three involving what the administration referred to as enhanced unemployment benefits, an eviction moratorium and a continued deferral on student loan payments. The actions came as Democrats and Republicans continued to fall short of an agreement on the terms of a new stimulus package, which might include a second round of stimulus checks. That deadlock goes on, with a “skinny” relief bill floated by Republicans failing to pass the Senate on Friday. 

Even though there were some exemptions to the rule — like withdrawals for tuition and other educational expenses or buying a home — Americans were forking out more than $5 billion a year in early withdrawal fees, according to the IRS. To avoid getting hit with the penalty, it’s generally a good idea to leave your retirement account alone until after you’ve stopped working Full Review-time.
