Monthly paid employees will notice a change in their February 1 paychecks due to reduced Social Security withholding for 2011 from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent. Because the change was not implemented in time to affect the January 3, 2011 paycheck, monthly employees paid on that date were subject to Social Security withholding tax at the old rate. Employees will be refunded the difference in the Feb. 1 paycheck.
