2012 Social Security Taxable Wage BasePosted on October 19, 2011
The Social Security Administration announced on October 19, 2011 the 2012 Social Security Taxable Wage Base. The wage base is increasing $3,300 from the taxable wage base for 2011 of $106,800 up to $110,100 for 2012. The administration did not release the maximum withholding as there is a potential that this will change if any part of the America Jobs Act is passed by congress and signed into law before January 1, 2012.
