    Medicare B & D premiums if you sign up, income tax if you want it taken.

    Medicare if you have it. Federal income tax if you request it.

    Because the boomers need to buy golf carts and diapers.

    Medicare Part B if you have it. And whatever extras you sign up for.

    Federal and state income tax, if you want them withheld or the IRS has ruled that you are subject to backup withholding. Otherwise no tax is withheld.

    If you are enrolled in Medicare Part B, the premium for that is withheld.

    That's it unless a court has approved garnishment of your SS due to a judgment against you.
