Re: FICA Taxes - Resident Exemption Wins!


I think the IRS issued a specific rules early in 2005 stating that medical residents and fellows were subject to FICA taxes from that day forward. That's why your program did not file a FICA refund claim for 2005.

Who knows if this IRS ruling will stand up in court?

And unfortunately, at this point in time, if your program didn't file a claim for 2005, and you didn't file an individual claim, then it might be too late to file anything with the IRS to get your FICA taxes from 2005 refunded.
