(Dec. 22, 2011) -- The reduction to the employee's contribution to Social Security as provided in the Tax Relief Act of 2010 will expire Dec. 31, 2011. As a result, UTSA employees' Social Security tax will increase from 4.2 percentto 6.2 percent beginning the first payday of 2012. The effect to employee paychecks is $20 for every $1,000 of Social Security taxable income.

If Congress votes to extend the Social Security tax reduction at a later date, tax adjustments will be based on the details and date of any extension of the reduced rate.
