At the federal level, the main payroll taxes organizations see are for federal income tax, Social Security, Medicare, and Unemployment. While federal income tax is paid just by employees, organizations do have to withhold and deposit the funds to pay this tax on each employee’s behalf, as well as file returns for these deposits every quarter or year. Medicare taxes don’t have a wage base limit, but they do have an Additional Medicare Tax for wages above certain amounts.
