08 Sep Payroll tax deferral will kick in for military, civilian feds next week|By Nicole Ogrysko|FEDERAL NEWS NETWORK
Federal civilian employees and active-duty members will see the first signs of the president’s payroll tax deferral next week, the military’s largest payroll provider and the Trump administration said Tuesday.
All major federal payroll providers are implementing the president’s payroll tax deferral for the second paycheck of the month, a senior administration official told Federal News Network Tuesday evening.
The payroll tax deferral is effective for civilian federal employees at the pay period ending Sept. 12, the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) said in a series of frequently-asked-questions, which it posted over the weekend.
For active-duty military members, the payroll tax deferral is effective for their mid-month paycheck, DFAS said. Military members are paid twice every month. Pay day arrives for most active-duty members Sept. 15.
