Has my employer withheld too much Medicare tax and too much Social Security tax?

Really?  Is that is what is on your actual W-2 form?   

Or are you looking at paystubs?

 

That is too much if that is what boxes 4+6 add up to on your actual W-2.  IF so, then you need to take it back to the employer for correction.   

 

Either it was an entry error on their part and just needs a corrected form (W-2C)....or they need to refund you the extra themselves AND issue a W-2C with the proper amounts.
