Customer Question
I am a UK Citizen...
I am a UK Citizen who owns a business in the USA and is an E2 Visa holder. I have been here for nearly five years and have paid into the USA Social Security, Medicare and CA Disability for the whole time. I am looking to return to the UK and would like to know if there is any way of getting some or all of this money back when I return to the UK.

Unfortunately - social security and Medicare taxes are not refundable unless paid by error...

You are not eligible for the refund just because you plan to live the US .

Sorry if you expected differently.

If for instance you have two jobs - and each took social security taxes from wages - with total above the maximum limit.

The maximum taxable wages for 2017 is $118,500
