As I mentioned in this question (Can my employer adjust FICA contributions on payroll they have already processed?), my first paycheck (after a sabbatical) in the first two weeks of February did not have the resident taxes/FICA (~$300) deducted from it.
I had not mentioned the change in my tax status (from FICA exempt to resident tax liable) to the company in writing (W9) by the time the payroll was processed. I was late to submit the documentation, just by a day, before the company processed payroll.
I had mentioned my change in tax status, verbally, a week before though and have documentation of this verbal notification.
Payroll is processed through Quickbooks and from what accounting told me, it's not possible to process payroll again, and hence have the deductions happen.
Is there a way I could have the resident taxes/FICA deducted from that paycheck another way in which I can have my employer pay for it?
For example, can I ask my employer to:
- Issue a check to me for the exact amount that the resident taxes would come to for that period (~$300)
- Issue a check to the IRS with my name and SSN on the check description/details for the exact amount that the resident taxes would come to for that period (~$300)
I would rather not pay ~$300 for the resident taxes/FICA by myself that my employer would have paid anyways (had I handed over the W9 to them just a day before than I did, when they processed payroll).
