Navigating New York Payroll Taxes: Unveiling the 5 Key Taxes and SYEDPRO’s Strategic Role

SUI is employer-funded and supports unemployment benefits. Compliance with contribution rates and reporting is essential for businesses in New York.

4. Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA):

FUTA is a federal tax that supports state unemployment programmes. Businesses must adhere to FUTA regulations for smooth operations.

Section 3: Understanding the Regressive Nature of Social Security Tax
1. Flat Percentage of Income:

The Social Security tax imposes a flat percentage on earned income, regardless of the individual’s total revenue. It means lower-income earners contribute a more significant proportion of their income than higher-income earners.

2. Cap on Taxable Income:

While the Social Security tax is calculated as a percentage of income, there’s a cap on taxable income. Once an individual’s earnings surpass a certain threshold, they no longer contribute to Social Security on the excess income. This cap disproportionately benefits higher-income individuals.

3. Impact on Lower-Income Earners:

Lower-income individuals often spend a more substantial portion of their income on necessities. As the Social Security tax is a fixed percentage, it places a heavier burden on those with lower incomes, making it regressive.
