Supreme Court says severance payments are taxable

(Reuters) – The Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday that taxes are due for Social Security and Medicare on severance packages paid to workers laid off involuntarily.

In a win for the Obama administration, the court voted 8-0, with Justice Elena Kagan recused, that Quality Stores Inc., a defunct retailer and its employees, are not entitled to tax refunds totaling about $1 million.
