Small cut in pay

I don't follow the news much because it's all depressing. Yesterday at work they said were getting a cut in pay because of taxes,I guess we'll get 2% more taken out of our check. What's going on here with taxes could someone get me up to date please?

  • If I understand correctly, a few years ago there was a tax reduction in the amount of about 2% or so and you saw that extra in your paychecks. That has expired now and it will revert back to what it was before.

  • They talked about it on NPR the other day and gave an example of someone making $30,000/year would probably have to pay $600/year back in social security.
