Do I pay FICA on the portion of my salary that is not tax exempt?
I currently took on a full time position at a church making a salary that exceeds my housing costs and therefore only a portion of my salary is considered Tax Exempt from Federal Withholding.
The question I have is that our CFO insisted that I was supposed to pay FICA tax on the whole amount of my salary. In past employment with churches I don't recall paying FICA at all but that's because my salary never exceeded my true housing cost.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
