Retirement and Tax Issues Impacting District Government Employees

Affected employees will notice a correction to your tax withholdings in paychecks issued the week of August 26th. Please note that this decrease will reflect only the amount you are required to pay in Medicare taxes. The amount of Medicare taxes taken out of your next paycheck will be reflected in Box 6 under MED/EE (Medicare/Employee) as shown in Understanding Your DC Government Paycheck. Additional information on Medicare taxes and benefits can be found at www.medicare.gov.
