|Changes to the Payroll System for the November 2013 RG2 pay cycle:|
Tax Refunds for Married Same-Sex Partnerships:
Social Security and Medicare tax refunds were processed this period for 8 individuals as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision to treat same-sex marriages as married for federal income purposes. Tax refunds resulted from the reversal of the fair market value taxed in 2013 for medical premiums for partner coverage.
