Tax Resolution Attorney John P. Willis Writes About The Executive Order That Allows Employers To Defer Social Security Tax Withdrawal.

Tax resolution attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of IRSALLSTAR elaborates on the details of the executive order that gives employers the ability to defer withholding social security taxes warning that it might sound good, but deserves deeper consideration.

 Fairhope, AL, September 24, 2020: Tax Attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of, recently published a blog on his website entitled “Payback Is Hell, in which Mr. Willis encourages his readers to “think long and hard before jumping in.”

John P WillisWillis writes, “Remember this saying when considering whether or not to follow the Executive Order of the deferral of employee Social Security Tax. The deferral may sound good to you as an employer and to employees now, but payback could really be hellish.” He adds, “In other words, unless it’s going to mean the difference between life and death for your employees, you might want to think long and hard before jumping in.”

As Willis points out, “If you were to participate in deferring the withholding of Social Security tax, that would result in a very slight increase in your employees’ take-home pay for a couple of months. It would also mean costs associated with implementing such a change, to decrease withholdings for four months.” He further elaborates, “The deferral begins September 1, 2020 and goes through December 31, 2020. Afterwards, you would then have costs associated with increasing the withholdings back to more than the ordinary levels until the appropriate amount is recovered from the employee.”

“The good news,” writes Willis, “is that this executive order is not mandatory. Likewise,” he continues, “your employees cannot force you to do it. However, if you choose, you can offer the deferral to employees on a voluntary basis. That is up to your discretion.”
