1.) Any unpaid SS or Medicare Tax due will be added to your total federal tax due. No special handling is required to pay it.

No special penalties. Underwithholding penalty might apply but with only $200 in imputed income, it is unlikely to trigger underwithholding penalties.

2.) There was only imputed income which means there wasn't any paid income for your ex-employer to use for withholding.

With boxes for Medicare and Social Security being blank, Turbo Tax will probably whine but should handle it.
