Tax Deferral Executive Order

Tax Deferral Executive Order

An executive order was signed by President Trump on August 8, 2020 calling for a deferral of certain payroll tax obligations. These pertain only to the OASDI (Old-age, survivor, and disability insurance), commonly referred to as Social Security. Here at Santa Fe ISD, we do not collect Social Security Tax; therefore, there is no change in the policies and procedures of payroll. You will not see a reduction in income taxes withheld since the Presidential Memorandum does not cover these. Please click on the link to view a copy of the details of this executive order.
