FICA limits when your income is from two jobs?
I work two jobs. Any income above $137,700 is exempt from FICA. Since my income comes from two sources, my employers will not know when I have hit this limit. How do I get back any excess paid? My primary job pays about $130,000 and my second job pays about $30,000.

If you're overpaying, the Internal Revenue Service offers a solution. You may claim a refund of the overpayment Line of Form 1040, the individual tax return. The IRS will issue a full reimbursement of the overpayment, as long as you don't owe any income tax. If you do owe current-year or previous-year taxes, the IRS applies your overpayment to that amount first, then issues any balance to you.
Your employer may claim an overpayment from the IRS as long as he reimburses the employee as well for the excess payroll tax. The employer must file an adjusted business tax return, and the IRS will then apply the overpayment as a credit on any future taxes due.

"you may be able to claim the excess as a credit against your income tax on your income tax return. Use either Worksheet 3-1 or 3-2 in Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax (PDF) to help you figure the excess amount."Source(s): https://www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc608

When you file your income taxes you can get excess social security to reduce an income tax liability due, or increase a refund due.
This is how you get any extra social security taxes. When you enter your W-2s any tax software should be able to deal with this excess social security taxes withheld and properly credit you for this.
