Information on Executive Order Allowing the Deferral of OASDI/Social Security Taxes

On Aug. 8, 2020, President Trump issued an executive order allowing employers to defer withholding the employee portion of OASDI/Social Security tax obligations until the end of the year. The executive order, however, does not cut or eliminate these payroll taxes, and employees would still be required to pay these taxes in 2021 after the deferral period ends. After receiving guidance from NACUBO (National Association of College and University Business Officers), the University of California Office of the President (UCOP) has decided that UC should not participate in this optional program at this time.
