HOT Info Regarding OASDI Tax Deferral Collections!
The Consolidated Appropriations Act was signed by the President on December 27, 2020, extending the OASDI (social security) Tax deferral collection period from 1 January- 30 April 2021 to 1 January- 31 December 2021. How will this impact your pay?
For ACTIVE DUTY military members, the 2020 deferred Social Security taxes will be collected in 24 installments, from your mid-month and end-of-month pay between January 1 and December 30, 2021.
For RESERVISTS and GUARDSMAN performing intermittent duty in 2021, the amount collected may not be the same every pay period. DFAS will collect 2% of net available from each weekly, mid-month and end-of-month pay, and will continue until the deferred taxes have been repaid in full.
