cotisation sécurité sociale


Explanation:
The exact terminology differs of course from one country to the other. But this is the American equivalent of contribution for social security based on a percentage of income. Translation does not have to match 100% equivalent terminology of the target country. The difference between some European countries and US is that in the Us health insurance is not an integral part of social security

Comme il n'y a pas vraiment d'équivalent, on pourrait dire tout simplement: impôt de sécurité sociale.
