FICA Refund Denied by Supreme Court for post 4/1/05 claims

Sadly, he U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously Tuesday that medical residents aren't exempt from payroll taxes, declining to force the U.S. Internal Revenue Service to recognize the physicians-in-training as students. This ruling applies to post 4/1/05 earnings.

The IRS is processing refund claims filed for prior periods. It's too late for you to file a refund claim if you haven't done so already, or the group where you were working as a trainee hadn't filed a class action claim on behalf of you and your colleagues.
