Excess Social Security Tax or Railroad Retirement Tax Withheld

The annual amount of Social Security taxes are increased annually for inflation. This year’s maximum is $7,049.40. If you worked for one employer and had more than the maximum tax withheld, you must contact your employer for a refund of the overpayment. If you worked for more than one employer and the combined total of your social security taxes is greater than the maximum amount, you may claim the excess taxes paid as a refundable credit on your tax return. A refundable credit can be used to increase your refund.
