13. If I do receive a FICA tax refund, do I need to pay taxes on it?
Should you receive a FICA tax refund, the refund is not subject to federal income tax. However, the IRS intends to pay interest on your share of the FICA tax that is refunded. The interest paid by the IRS on your share of the FICA tax refund is subject to tax in the year it is received. You will be provided a 1099-INT if more than $600 in interest is paid in the calendar year. You should contact your tax professional for more information on this subject and to discuss your specific tax situation.
