Medical residents are not entitled to the student exception for FICA, according to the IRS Office of Chief Counsel (Tax Exempt and Governmental Entities). The IRS has concluded that generally, unless the facts are virtually identical to those in the Eighth Circuit case (University of Minnesota where residents pay tuition), services provided by medical residents are not incident to and for the purpose of pursuing a course of study, but rather a form of on-the-job training, and therefore not entitled to the statutory exception from FICA.
