I was doing some work on the family budget for 2010 and looked up income subject to Social Security taxes in 2010 on the SSA website. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the income subject to social security taxes is not increasing in 2010. That means the amount subject to social security taxes is going to stay at $106,800, leaving the maximum an individual pays into social security at $6,621.60 (twice that when the employer’s amount is included).
Of course, this also means that recipients are not getting a raise this year.
