A new subchapter SL 15005 Resources Manuals has been created.


SL 15005.010 contains the Temporary Emergency Worker Exclusion: Resource Guide. The purpose of the guide is to examine the temporary emergency worker exclusion from FICA tax withholding by providing general information on the laws and regulations that pertain to the exclusion as well as detailing the possible situations in which a temporary emergency worker may exist.


The temporary emergency worker exclusion states that services warranted because of the existence of an unforeseen event (e.g., fire, storm, snow, earthquake, flood) that call for immediate action by emergency personnel are excluded from FICA tax withholding.
