Question description

 2010, the Social Security tax rate was 3% of taxable gross income.  The employer and employee each paid half of the tax, that is 1.5% of income (self-employed individuals paid the full 3%). There was no Social Security tax on the income over the first $65000.00 in the year.

If an individual made $85000.00 in 2010, how much Social Security tax did the employee pay?
