Please don't confuse it with answer here. Mine is not a duplicate question.
If I am on F1 (non-immigrant student) visa and doing my OPT (1st year not the STEM extension) or I am a full time student (still on F1 visa) and have acquired the resident alien status for the tax purposes. Do I have to pay the social security and medicare taxes? I am a bit confused. Based on the screenshot pasted below from this IRS page, I think I don't need to pay. However, this answer on turbotax says that I need to. Please advice.
