FICA Exemption

In order to be eligible for the FICA Exemption, a student must be enrolled and regularly attending classes in at least half time of credits for that semester. The employee-employer relationship must be primarily educational. If a student is registered for the following semester, the student will be eligible for the FICA exemption if the break is less than five weeks. If a student works during a school break of more than five weeks, the student will not be eligible for a FICA exemption if the student is not attending classes during the break. This information can be found on the IRS Revenue Procedure 2005-11, page 14
