Social Security - 2 Jobs Yielding Excess Withholding

If your combined wages from both jobs exceed $110,100 for the current year and more than $4624.20 was withheld, you are entitled to receive credit for the excess social security paid. That amount is taken as additional federal withholding on IRS Form 1040, page 2 when you file your tax return and can be refunded.
