Question of a small employer in TN:

We pay SSI and Medicare tax on regular income. If we offer an optional 401a with up to a 3% match, do we have to pay empoyee SSI and/or medicare tax on the 3% match?

No. But are you referring to the employee contributions or the employer contributions, not that it makes any difference.

Why do you ask? The explanation regarding the difference between pre-tax contributions (mandatory or pick-up) and voluntary after tax employee contributions are usually given at enrollment time and covered in the SPD, so I suspect that you have some issue that causes you concern.

I'm referring to the employer contributions, the match, given on voluntary pre-tax contributions
