Are independent consultants required to pay FICA? I am a retired sales executive on Social Security.

FICA paid by independent consultants paid hourly under contract?

If you are an independent contractor being compensated for a service you are providing (youre not an employee being given a W2 at year end), you will pay FICA (social security and medicare) on your net profit.
