Hi JAFO!Why do you assume that your employer would have paid the Medicare tax amount to you? Because, in the end, every employer looks at the total cost of an employee...and to get good help, pays what the market demands. My assumption is that my employer would have paid me a slightly higher salary if the employer side of the Medicare tax did not exist. Your ( assumption) mileage may vary.I am curious has to how you calculated "your" total payments to Medicare.I got them off my annual Social Security statement.As to your detailed calculation, well, the problem with averages and generalities is that they do not exist. In my specific case, my income over 40 years was quite "lumpy"....especially after 1990....and yes, I did have some large income after that date. More than that level of detail, I don't feel inclined to disclose on a public forum.Cheers!MurphHome Fool
