    Excess Social Security Tax - Railroad Retirement Tax (RRTA)

  • The maximum Social Security taxes or RRTA tier 1 an individual must pay in 2012 is $4,624.20. If you worked for one employer and paid more than $4,64.20, 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 or RRTA is greater than the maximum amount, you may claim the excess taxes paid as a refundable credit on your tax return.
