why do school kids have taxes deducted from their summer jobs and how do we get it back?
My kids had summer jobs and had federal and state taxes deducted - is this right and if not how do we claim them back from the IRS and State?
Because the government doesn't play favorites if you make over $300 in a year and you get it back just like most other working Americans by filing a tax return although I think if you claim them as dependents they might be out of luck. I'm not a tax accountant though so you might want to check with a tax preparer first.
Taxes are withheld because they may have a tax liability. File an income tax return for your kids to determine if they are due a refund.
FICA (Social Secuirty and Medicare) are withheld from all employee wages and are a set percentage. This money is not returned unless your consider future government benefits returned money.

What are some great summer jobs for adults?I'm thinking about taking on an extra job during the summer and am wondering what type of job would be great for a 20-something college grad. Have you ever worked a summer job as an adult? What was your experience?
