The University of the Pacific must report the cost of medical and dental insurance that we provide for a domestic partner. The value of this benefit is subject to Federal Income, State Income, Social Security and Medicare taxes. The University of the Pacific must deduct and withhold these taxes from your paycheck based on the market value of the coverage, called "imputed income." The market value of coverage is calculated as the difference between the actuarial value of insurance for employee only and insurance for employee and one dependent.
