桃花坞里桃花庵 桃花庵里桃花仙
桃花仙人种桃树 又摘桃花换酒钱
酒醒只在花前坐 酒醉还来花下眠
半醒半醉日复日 花落花开年复年
但愿老死花酒间 不愿鞠躬车马前
车尘马足贵者趣 酒盏花枝贫者缘
若将富贵比贫者 一在平地一在天
若将贫贱比车马 他得驱驰我得闲
别人笑我太疯癫 我笑别人看不穿
不见五陵豪杰墓 无花无酒锄作田

Short Answer: If you are still student employed by the school, you don’t; otherwise you do.

Full Answer:

All the F-1 visa holders need to pay taxes as resident aliens after fifth year. According to the IRS file Social Security/Medicare and Self-Employment Tax Liability of Foreign Students, Scholars, Teachers, Researchers, and Trainees, all the resident aliens need to pay FICA Tax (medicare and social security):

“Foreign students in F-1, J-1, M-1, Q-1 or Q-2 nonimmigrant status who have been in the United States more than 5 calendar years are RESIDENT ALIENS and are liable for social security/Medicare taxes (unless they are exempt from FICA under the “student FICA exemption” discussed below).”

However, there’s an exception for the resident alien F-1 visa holders who are still students employed by the school, according to the IRS file Student Exception to FICA Tax:

“FICA (Social Security and Medicare) taxes do not apply to service performed by students employed by a school, college or university where the student is pursuing a course of study. Whether the organization is a school, college or university depends on the organization’s primary function. In addition, whether employees are students for this purpose requires examining the individual’s employment relationship with the employer to determine if employment or education is predominant in the relationship.”

Update: Through the communication with the tax specialist of the school, they confirmed that the resident alien students should not be taxed on medicare and social security during the semester. However, if the resident alien students earn research assistantship during the summer, they will be taxed since the summer research “is not pursuing a course”.
