    Default Does a Social Security Earnings Report Show Gross or Net Income

    Does the earnings report from social security which shows the name of employers, income per year etc... represent gross or net income? I am trying to find out how much I made per month from a job I had many years ago. They IRS told me that they cannot go back that far to make copies of my employers tax filings or my own income tax filings.

    I also need proof that the employer differentiated between "active" pay and "severence" pay. The IRS told me that there is no established procedure in place to differentiate and has never been one. Is this true? I know this second question is more of a tax question.

    Social Security Statement shows gross wages - would include anything FICA/OASDI was withheld from. Wages, sick pay, severence, vacation, etc.

    "would include anything FICA/OASDI was withheld from"

    "withheld from" meaning my net monthly pay did not include FICA/OASDI?

    Did your employer withhold FICA/OASDI taxes? Most do. Those are considered 'covered' wages. Some don't. Some school employees, some non-profit organizations, some state employees. Some sick pay is still considered wages; sometimes it is paid by an insurance company and is not wages.

    Employers can may also withhold income tax depending upon the W-4 submitted.

    On the Social Security Statement, only the gross amount of covered wages and reported self-employment is shown.
