This man is aba «n - plqrod by several places ia town for the somo type if work, k it true that my husband should pay social security on this mas when it amounts to so little? Do all his employers have to do the same? — A Fayette reader. A. Yes. An employer having only one part - time employee is subject to social security tax unless the type of services being performed are by law excepted from coverage. Very few types of service are excepted. The work you describe is covered. Social security reporting of a few classes of employment, such as household work m private home, is required only if wages of $50 or more are paid in a calendar quarter. However, any amount paid by an employer for most types of work, including that that you describe, is required to be taxed and reported for social security purposes. If • person works for more than one employer during the same period, each employer must include him on his social security report and withhold social security tax on the first 14,800 wages m the year. •» m Stciaj Stwttr, writ* t mKH tt Mtv I* StcM June Allyson Wins Divorce Miss Allyson, who weighs only; I dress, was attind in a demure white suit.
