  • Social Security Taxes?

    My husband came here on an L1 visa, we met, married and filed all the paperwork and he is now a green card holder. My question is, does he now have to pay social security tax? I was under the impression that since he is not a USC and can not get SS benefits he does not pay in to FICA. Anyone else have any info on this issue?

      Wrong impression. I don't know about L visa holders, but green card holders definitely do have to pay Social Security taxes. Depending on the country he's from there may well be a totalization agreement in place which allows him to count the time he works here toward retirement in his own country, or the time he worked there toward retirement here. Furthermore, if he acquires 40 quarters (roughly 10 years) of work here in which he pays SS taxes then he's eligible for SS.
