Answer #1

Ans:Option:C. 2104 is Correct Answer

Tax rate for FICA social security tax for the year 2019 is 6.2% and the taxable wage base is $132,900.

Therefore,

FICA social security tax withheld = $27,500 x 6.2% = $1705

Tax rate for FICA medicare tax for the year 2019 is 1.45% with no wage base.

Therefore,

FICA medicare tax withheld = $27500 x 1.45% = $398.75

Thus,

Total FICA taxes withheld = $1705 + $398.75 = $2103.75=$2104 (Nearest whole Dollar)
