Bug - no social security tax withheld for spouse

My wife and I are new users of ESPlanner. For 2008 we entered $10,000 each for income from wages. The tax report shows FICA of 765 for me and 145 for my wife. The $765 for me is the correct total for social security and Medicare withholding, however, the $145 for my wife represents the Medicare withholding only. Why is there no social security withholding and how do I correct this?

Let me know if you need more information. Thanks.

Did you remember to copy future earnings in the SS screen?

Thanks. Apparently when you enter earnings for a single year on the social security tab and do not click another year or use the Grow button the value is not saved. All is well now.
