Election Officials and Election Workers <-Link
The Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) tax exclusion for election officials and election workers is $1,400 for the calendar year beginning January 1, 2008, unless those wages are subject to Social Security and Medicare taxes under the State's Section 218 Agreement. Under Section 218 of the Social Security Act, many States have excluded from coverage election workers paid less than the threshold amount mandated by law. Therefore, Social Security and Medicare taxes do not apply until the election worker is paid $1,400 or more.
