Former GW Medical Residents (Jan. 1, 1995 - March 31, 2005):
The IRS has made an administrative decision that medical residents may be eligible for a refund for the FICA (social security and Medicare) taxes that were withheld for those who were residents during the period between January 1, 1995 through March 31, 2005, and it has established a process by which refunds may be requested by institutions on behalf of former residents.
*The medical resident FICA refund consent process has now closed. New consent forms will no longer be accepted.*
Please visit the link for more information about the FICA Tax Refund Claim.
