Medical Resident FICA Refund Claims

If you have questions about the Medical Resident FICA Refund Claims, please access the FICA Refund Claims FAQs. In the event that you have questions not addressed by the above FAQs, please call the UMMS dedicated FICA Refund Claims phone number at 508-856-1105 or you may email your questions to fica.refundclaims@umassmed.edu

Tax Implications - A refund of FICA is not considered taxable income, though it may adversely affect your future benefits under Medicare. The interest on the refund, however, is taxable income. For each of the years that you receive a refund, you will receive a W-2c, Corrected Wage and Tax Statement, reducing the Medicare wages and Medicare taxes reported for that year. Access the FICA Refund Claims FAQs and see, "Section III. Tax Implications" for more details.
