Payroll taxes, other than income taxes, include the FICA (Social Security tax) and the Medicare tax.
The FICA rate is 6.2% and the Medicare rate is 1.45%, for a total of 7.65%. This rate is the same for the employee and the employer. What affects one also affects the other. A self-employed person pays a rate of 15.3%.
