OK, So I am having a bit of an issue getting a response from our payroll department at work and Google is useless in regards to this question.
I work for the local county and we do not have Social Security taken out of our paychecks. In place of that we are contributing to a 457B plan (basically a 401K). My question is how do I claim this on my year end taxes? The 457B is easy, that is just a retirement plan and claimed as such, it's the fact that my Social Security withheld is 0.00. Do I just claim 0 for SS or is there an additional form that needs to be filled out due to this?
I have never had to pay to have my taxes done for me in the past and hate to start now :) This seems like a straightforward question and there is a ton of information available on 457B plans but nothing related to how they are claimed on year end taxes and how to deal with no Social Security withheld.
