Who Are Employees? Generally, employees are defined either under common law or under statutes for certain situations. 2010 amended tax return See Publication 15-A for details on statutory employees and nonemployees. 2010 amended tax return Employee status under common law. 2010 amended tax return   Generally, a worker who performs services for you is your employee if you have the right to control what will be done and how it will be done. 2010 amended tax return This is so even when you give the employee freedom of action. 2010 amended tax return What matters is that you have the right to control the details of how the services are performed. 2010 amended tax return See Publication 15-A for more information on how to determine whether an individual providing services is an independent contractor or an employee. 2010 amended tax return If an employer-employee relationship exists, it does not matter what it is called. 2010 amended tax return The employee may be called an agent or independent contractor. 2010 amended tax return It also does not matter how payments are measured or paid, what they are called, or if the employee works full or part time. 2010 amended tax return You are responsible for withholding and paying employment taxes for your employees. 2010 amended tax return You are also required to file employment tax returns. 2010 amended tax return These requirements do not apply to amounts that you pay to independent contractors. 2010 amended tax return The rules discussed in this publication apply only to workers who are your employees. 2010 amended tax return In general, you are an employer of farmworkers if your employees: Raise or harvest agricultural or horticultural products on your farm (including the raising and feeding of livestock); Work in connection with the operation, management, conservation, improvement, or maintenance of your farm and its tools and equipment; Provide services relating to salvaging timber, or clearing land of brush and other debris, left by a hurricane (also known as hurricane labor); Handle, process, or package any agricultural or horticultural commodity if you produced over half of the commodity (for a group of up to 20 unincorporated operators, all of the commodity); or Do work for you related to cotton ginning, turpentine, gum resin products, or the operation and maintenance of irrigation facilities. 2010 amended tax return For this purpose, the term “farm” includes stock, dairy, poultry, fruit, fur-bearing animal, and truck farms, as well as plantations, ranches, nurseries, ranges, greenhouses or other similar structures used primarily for the raising of agricultural or horticultural commodities, and orchards. 2010 amended tax return Farmwork does not include reselling activities that do not involve any substantial activity of raising agricultural or horticultural commodities, such as a retail store or a greenhouse used primarily for display or storage. 2010 amended tax return The table in section 12, How Do Employment Taxes Apply to Farmwork , distinguishes between farm and nonfarm activities, and also addresses rules that apply in special situations. 2010 amended tax return Crew Leaders If you are a crew leader, you are an employer of farmworkers. 2010 amended tax return A crew leader is a person who furnishes and pays (either on his or her own behalf or on behalf of the farm operator) workers to do farmwork for the farm operator. 2010 amended tax return If there is no written agreement between you and the farm operator stating that you are his or her employee and if you pay the workers (either for yourself or for the farm operator), then you are a crew leader. 2010 amended tax return For FUTA tax rules, see section 10. 2010 amended tax return Business Owned and Operated by Spouses If you and your spouse jointly own and operate a farm or nonfarm business and share in the profits and losses, you are partners in a partnership, whether or not you have a formal partnership agreement. 2010 amended tax return See Publication 541, Partnerships, for more details. 2010 amended tax return The partnership is considered the employer of any employees, and is liable for any employment taxes due on wages paid to its employees. 2010 amended tax return Exception—Qualified joint venture. 2010 amended tax return   For tax years beginning after December 31, 2006, the Small Business and Work Opportunity Tax Act of 2007 (Public Law 110-28) provides that a “qualified joint venture,” whose only members are spouses filing a joint income tax return, can elect not to be treated as a partnership for federal tax purposes. 2010 amended tax return A qualified joint venture conducts a trade or business where: The only members of the joint venture are spouses who file a joint income tax return, Both spouses materially participate (see Material participation in the Instructions for Schedule C (Form 1040), line G) in the trade or business (mere joint ownership of property is not enough), Both spouses elect to not be treated as a partnership, and The business is co-owned by both spouses and is not held in the name of a state law entity such as a partnership or limited liability company (LLC). 2010 amended tax return   To make the election, all items of income, gain, loss, deduction, and credit must be divided between the spouses, in accordance with each spouse's interest in the venture, and reported on separate Schedules C or F as sole proprietors. 2010 amended tax return Each spouse must also file a separate Schedule SE to pay self-employment taxes, as applicable. 2010 amended tax return   Spouses using the qualified joint venture rules are treated as sole proprietors for federal tax purposes and generally do not need an EIN. 2010 amended tax return If employment taxes are owed by the qualified joint venture, either spouse may report and pay the employment taxes due on the wages paid to the employees using the EIN of that spouse's sole proprietorship. 2010 amended tax return Generally, filing as a qualified joint venture will not increase the spouses' total tax owed on the joint income tax return. 2010 amended tax return However, it gives each spouse credit for social security earnings on which retirement benefits are based and for Medicare coverage without filing a partnership return. 2010 amended tax return    Note. 2010 amended tax return If your spouse is your employee, not your partner, you must pay social security and Medicare taxes for him or her. 2010 amended tax return   For more information on qualified joint ventures, visit IRS. 2010 amended tax return gov and enter “qualified joint venture” in the search box. 2010 amended tax return Exception—Community income. 2010 amended tax return   If you and your spouse wholly own an unincorporated business as community property under the community property laws of a state, foreign country, or U. 2010 amended tax return S. 2010 amended tax return possession, you can treat the business either as a sole proprietorship (of the spouse who carried on the business) or a partnership. 2010 amended tax return You may still make an election to be taxed as a qualified joint venture instead of a partnership. 2010 amended tax return See Exception—Qualified joint venture , earlier in this section. 2010 amended tax return 3. 2010 amended tax return Wages and Other Compensation Cash wages that you pay to employees for farmwork are generally subject to social security tax and Medicare tax. 2010 amended tax return You may also be required to withhold, deposit, and report Additional Medicare Tax. 2010 amended tax return See section 4 for more information. 2010 amended tax return If the wages are subject to social security and Medicare taxes, they are also subject to federal income tax withholding. 2010 amended tax return You may also be liable for FUTA tax, which is not withheld by you or paid by the employee. 2010 amended tax return FUTA tax is discussed in section 10. 2010 amended tax return Cash wages include checks, money orders, etc. 2010 amended tax return Do not count as cash wages the value of food, lodging, and other noncash items. 2010 amended tax return For more information on what payments are considered taxable wages, see Publication 15 (Circular E). 2010 amended tax return Commodity wages. 2010 amended tax return   Commodity wages are not cash and are not subject to social security and Medicare taxes or federal income tax withholding. 2010 amended tax return However, noncash payments, including commodity wages, are treated as cash wages (see above) if the substance of the transaction is a cash payment. 2010 amended tax return These noncash payments are subject to social security and Medicare taxes and federal income tax withholding. 2010 amended tax return Other compensation. 2010 amended tax return   Publications 15-A and 15-B discuss other forms of compensation that may be taxable. 2010 amended tax return Family members. 2010 amended tax return   Generally, the wages that you pay to family members who are your employees are subject to social security and Medicare taxes, federal income tax withholding, and FUTA tax. 2010 amended tax return However, certain exemptions may apply for your child, spouse, or parent. 2010 amended tax return See the table, How Do Employment Taxes Apply to Farmwork , in section 12. 2010 amended tax return Household employees. 2010 amended tax return   The wages of an employee who performs household services, such as a maid, babysitter, gardener, or cook, in your home are not subject to social security and Medicare taxes if you pay that employee cash wages of less than $1,900 in 2014. 2010 amended tax return   Social security and Medicare taxes do not apply to cash wages for housework in your private home if it was done by your spouse or your child under age 21. 2010 amended tax return Nor do the taxes apply to housework done by your parent unless: You have a child living in your home who is under age 18 or has a physical or mental condition that requires care by an adult for at least 4 continuous weeks in a calendar quarter, and You are a widow or widower, or divorced and not remarried, or have a spouse in the home who, because of a physical or mental condition, cannot care for your child for at least 4 continuous weeks in the quarter. 2010 amended tax return   For more information, see Publication 926, Household Employer's Tax Guide. 2010 amended tax return    Wages for household work may not be a deductible farm expense. 2010 amended tax return See Publication 225, Farmer's Tax Guide. 2010 amended tax return Share farmers. 2010 amended tax return   You do not have to withhold or pay social security and Medicare taxes on amounts paid to share farmers under share-farming arrangements. 2010 amended tax return Compensation paid to H-2A visa holders. 2010 amended tax return   Report compensation of $600 or more paid to foreign agricultural workers who entered the country on H-2A visas in box 1 of Form W-2 but do not report it as social security wages (box 3) or Medicare wages (box 5) on Form W-2 because compensation paid to H-2A workers for agricultural labor performed in connection with this visa is not subject to social security and Medicare taxes. 2010 amended tax return On Form W-2, do not check box 13 (Statutory employee), as H-2A workers are not statutory employees. 2010 amended tax return   An employer is not required to withhold federal income tax from compensation it pays an H-2A worker for agricultural labor performed in connection with this visa unless the worker asks for withholding and the employer agrees. 2010 amended tax return In that case, the worker must give the employer a completed Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return Federal income tax withheld should be reported in box 2 of Form W-2. 2010 amended tax return These reporting rules apply when the H-2A worker provides his or her taxpayer identification number (TIN) to the employer. 2010 amended tax return For rules relating to backup withholding and reporting when the H-2A worker does not provide a TIN, see the Instructions for Form 1099-MISC and the Instructions for Form 945. 2010 amended tax return 4. 2010 amended tax return Social Security and Medicare Taxes Generally, you must withhold social security and Medicare taxes on all cash wage payments that you make to your employees. 2010 amended tax return You may also be required to withhold Additional Medicare Tax. 2010 amended tax return For more information, see Additional Medicare Tax withholding , later. 2010 amended tax return The $150 Test or the $2,500 Test All cash wages that you pay to an employee during the year for farmwork are subject to social security and Medicare taxes and federal income tax withholding if either of the two tests below is met. 2010 amended tax return You pay cash wages to an employee of $150 or more in a year for farmwork (count all cash wages paid on a time, piecework, or other basis). 2010 amended tax return The $150 test applies separately to each farmworker that you employ. 2010 amended tax return If you employ a family of workers, each member is treated separately. 2010 amended tax return Do not count wages paid by other employers. 2010 amended tax return The total that you pay for farmwork (cash and noncash) to all your employees is $2,500 or more during the year. 2010 amended tax return Exceptions. 2010 amended tax return   The $150 and $2,500 tests do not apply to wages that you pay to a farmworker who receives less than $150 in annual cash wages and the wages are not subject to social security and Medicare taxes, or federal income tax withholding, even if you pay $2,500 or more in that year to all of your farmworkers if the farmworker: Is employed in agriculture as a hand-harvest laborer, Is paid piece rates in an operation that is usually paid on a piece-rate basis in the region of employment, Commutes daily from his or her permanent home to the farm, and Had been employed in agriculture less than 13 weeks in the preceding calendar year. 2010 amended tax return   Amounts that you pay to these seasonal farmworkers, however, count toward the $2,500-or-more test to determine whether wages that you pay to other farmworkers are subject to social security and Medicare taxes. 2010 amended tax return Social Security and Medicare Tax Withholding The social security tax rate is 6. 2010 amended tax return 2%, for both the employee and employer, on the first $117,000 paid to each employee. 2010 amended tax return You must withhold at this rate from each employee and pay a matching amount. 2010 amended tax return The Medicare tax rate is 1. 2010 amended tax return 45% each for the employee and employer on all wages. 2010 amended tax return You must withhold at this rate from each employee and pay a matching amount. 2010 amended tax return There is no wage base limit for Medicare tax; all covered wages are subject to Medicare tax. 2010 amended tax return Social security and Medicare taxes apply to most payments of sick pay, including payments made by third parties such as insurance companies. 2010 amended tax return For details, see Publication 15-A. 2010 amended tax return Additional Medicare Tax withholding. 2010 amended tax return   In addition to withholding Medicare tax at 1. 2010 amended tax return 45%, you must withhold a 0. 2010 amended tax return 9% Additional Medicare Tax from wages you pay to an employee in excess of $200,000 in a calendar year. 2010 amended tax return You are required to begin withholding Additional Medicare Tax in the pay period in which you pay wages in excess of $200,000 to an employee and continue to withhold it each pay period until the end of the calendar year. 2010 amended tax return Additional Medicare Tax is only imposed on the employee. 2010 amended tax return There is no employer share of Additional Medicare Tax. 2010 amended tax return All wages that are subject to Medicare tax are subject to Additional Medicare Tax withholding if paid in excess of the $200,000 withholding threshold. 2010 amended tax return   For more information on what wages are subject to Medicare tax, see the chart, Special Rules for Various Types of Services and Payments, in section 15 of Publication 15 (Circular E). 2010 amended tax return For more information on Additional Medicare Tax, visit IRS. 2010 amended tax return gov and enter “Additional Medicare Tax” in the search box. 2010 amended tax return Employee share paid by employer. 2010 amended tax return   If you would rather pay a household or agricultural employee's share of the social security and Medicare taxes without withholding them from his or her wages, you may do so. 2010 amended tax return If you do not withhold the taxes, however, you must still pay them. 2010 amended tax return Any employee social security and Medicare taxes that you pay is additional income to the employee. 2010 amended tax return Include it in box 1 of the employee's Form W-2, but do not count it as social security and Medicare wages and do not include it in boxes 3 and 5. 2010 amended tax return Also, do not count the additional income as wages for FUTA tax purposes. 2010 amended tax return Different rules apply to employer payments of social security and Medicare taxes for non-household and non-agricultural employees. 2010 amended tax return See section 7 of Publication 15-A. 2010 amended tax return Withholding social security and Medicare taxes on nonresident alien employees. 2010 amended tax return   In general, if you pay wages to nonresident alien employees, you must withhold social security and Medicare taxes as you would for a U. 2010 amended tax return S. 2010 amended tax return citizen or resident alien. 2010 amended tax return However, see Publication 515, Withholding of Tax on Nonresident Aliens

farmworkers if the wages are subject to social security and Medicare taxes. 2010 amended tax return The amount to withhold is figured on gross wages before taking out social security and Medicare taxes, union dues, insurance, etc. 2010 amended tax return You may use one of several methods to determine the amount of federal income tax withholding. 2010 amended tax return They are discussed in section 13. 2010 amended tax return Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return   To know how much federal income tax to withhold from employees' wages, you should have a Form W-4 on file for each employee. 2010 amended tax return Encourage your employees to file an updated Form W-4 for 2014, especially if they owed taxes or received a large refund when filing their 2013 tax return. 2010 amended tax return Advise your employees to use the IRS Withholding Calculator on the IRS website at www. 2010 amended tax return irs. 2010 amended tax return gov/individuals for help in determining how many withholding allowances to claim on their Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return   Ask each new employee to give you a signed Form W-4 when starting work. 2010 amended tax return Make the form effective with the first wage payment. 2010 amended tax return If a new employee does not give you a completed Form W-4, withhold tax as if he or she is single, with no withholding allowances. 2010 amended tax return Forms in Spanish. 2010 amended tax return   You can provide Formulario W-4(SP) in place of Form W-4 to your Spanish-speaking employees. 2010 amended tax return For more information, see Publicación 17(SP). 2010 amended tax return Effective date of Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return   A Form W-4 remains in effect until the employee gives you a new one. 2010 amended tax return When you receive a new Form W-4, do not adjust withholding for pay periods before the effective date of the new form. 2010 amended tax return Do not adjust withholding retroactively. 2010 amended tax return If an employee gives you a replacement Form W-4, begin withholding no later than the start of the first payroll period ending on or after the 30th day from the date when you received the replacement Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return For exceptions, see Exemption from federal income tax withholding , IRS review of requested Forms W-4 , and Invalid Forms W-4 , later in this section. 2010 amended tax return A Form W-4 that makes a change for the next calendar year will not take effect in the current calendar year. 2010 amended tax return Completing Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return   The amount of federal income tax withholding is based on marital status and withholding allowances. 2010 amended tax return Your employees may not base their withholding amounts on a fixed dollar amount or percentage. 2010 amended tax return However, the employee may specify a dollar amount to be withheld in addition to the amount of withholding based on filing status and withholding allowances claimed on Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return   Employees may claim fewer withholding allowances than they are entitled to claim. 2010 amended tax return They may do this to ensure that they have enough withholding or to offset other sources of taxable income that are not subject to withholding. 2010 amended tax return   See Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax, for more information about completing Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return Along with Form W-4, you may wish to order Publication 505 for use by your employees. 2010 amended tax return    Do not accept any withholding or estimated tax payments from your employees in addition to withholding based on their Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return If an employee wants additional withholding, he or she should submit a new Form W-4 and, if necessary, pay estimated tax by filing Form 1040-ES, Estimated Tax for Individuals, or by using the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) to make estimated tax payments. 2010 amended tax return Exemption from federal income tax withholding. 2010 amended tax return   Generally, an employee may claim exemption from federal income tax withholding because he or she had no federal income tax liability last year and expects none this year. 2010 amended tax return See the Form W-4 instructions for more information. 2010 amended tax return However, the wages are still subject to social security and Medicare taxes. 2010 amended tax return   A Form W-4 claiming exemption from withholding is effective when it is filed with the employer and only for that calendar year. 2010 amended tax return To continue to be exempt from withholding in the next calendar year, an employee must give you a new Form W-4 by February 15. 2010 amended tax return If the employee does not give you a new Form W-4 by February 15, withhold tax based on the last valid Form W-4 you have for the employee that did not claim an exemption from withholding or, if one does not exist, withhold as if he or she is single with zero withholding allowances. 2010 amended tax return If the employee provides a new Form W-4 claiming an exemption from withholding on February 16 or later, you may apply the exemption to future wages, but do not refund taxes withheld while the exempt status was not in place. 2010 amended tax return Withholding income taxes on the wages of nonresident alien employees. 2010 amended tax return   In general, you must withhold federal income taxes on the wages of nonresident alien employees. 2010 amended tax return However, see Publication 515 for exceptions to this general rule. 2010 amended tax return Also see Compensation paid to H-2A visa workers in section 3. 2010 amended tax return Withholding adjustment for nonresident alien employees. 2010 amended tax return   A special procedure applies for figuring the amount of income tax to withhold from wages of nonresident alien employees performing services within the United States for wages paid in 2014. 2010 amended tax return This procedure requires a special chart to be used with the withholding tables to determine the amount to withhold from the wages of the nonresident alien employee. 2010 amended tax return See Withholding adjustment for nonresident alien employees in section 9 of Publication 15 (Circular E). 2010 amended tax return Nonresident alien employee's Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return   When completing Forms W-4, nonresident aliens are required to: Not claim exemption from income tax withholding; Request withholding as if they are single, regardless of their actual marital status; Claim only one allowance (if the nonresident alien is a resident of Canada, Mexico, or Korea, he or she may claim more than one allowance); and Write “Nonresident Alien” or “NRA” above the dotted line on line 6 of Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return   If you maintain an electronic Form W-4 system, you should provide a field for nonresident alien employees to enter nonresident alien status in lieu of writing “Nonresident Alien” or “NRA” above the dotted line on line 6. 2010 amended tax return    A nonresident alien employee may request additional withholding at his or her option for other purposes, although such additions should not be necessary for withholding to cover federal income tax liability related to employment. 2010 amended tax return Form 8233. 2010 amended tax return   If a nonresident alien employee claims a tax treaty exemption from withholding, the employee must submit Form 8233, Exemption from Withholding on Compensation for Independent (and Certain Dependent) Personal Services of a Nonresident Alien Individual, with respect to the income exempt under the treaty, instead of Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return See Publication 515 for details. 2010 amended tax return IRS review of requested Forms W-4. 2010 amended tax return   When requested by the IRS, you must make original Forms W-4 available for inspection by an IRS employee. 2010 amended tax return You may also be directed to send certain Forms W-4 to the IRS. 2010 amended tax return You may receive a notice from the IRS requiring you to submit a copy of Form W-4 for one or more of your named employees. 2010 amended tax return Send the requested copy or copies of Form W-4 to the IRS at the address provided and in the manner directed by the notice. 2010 amended tax return The IRS may also require you to submit copies of Form W-4 to the IRS as directed by a revenue procedure or notice published in the Internal Revenue Bulletin. 2010 amended tax return When we refer to Form W-4, the same rules apply to Formulario W-4(SP), its Spanish translation. 2010 amended tax return   After submitting a copy of the requested Form W-4 to the IRS, continue to withhold federal income tax based on that Form W-4 if it is valid (see Invalid Forms W-4 , later in this section). 2010 amended tax return However, if the IRS later notifies you in writing that the employee is not entitled to claim a complete exemption from withholding or more than the maximum number of withholding allowances specified by the IRS in the written notice, withhold federal income tax based on the effective date, marital status, and maximum number of withholding allowances specified in the notice (commonly referred to as a “lock-in letter”). 2010 amended tax return Initial lock-in letter. 2010 amended tax return   The IRS uses information reported on Form W-2 to identify employees with withholding compliance problems. 2010 amended tax return In some cases, where a serious under-withholding problem is found to exist for a particular employee, the IRS may issue a lock-in letter to the employer specifying the maximum number of withholding allowances and marital status permitted for a specific employee. 2010 amended tax return You will also receive a copy for the employee that identifies the maximum number of withholding allowances permitted and the process by which the employee can provide additional information to the IRS for purposes of determining the appropriate number of withholding allowances. 2010 amended tax return If the employee is employed by you as of the date of the notice, you must furnish the employee copy to the employee within 10 business days of receipt. 2010 amended tax return You may follow any reasonable business practice to furnish the employee copy to the employee. 2010 amended tax return Implementation of lock-in letter. 2010 amended tax return   When you receive the notice specifying the maximum number of withholding allowances and marital status permitted, you may not withhold immediately on the basis of the notice. 2010 amended tax return You must begin withholding tax on the basis of the notice for any wages paid after the date specified in the notice. 2010 amended tax return The delay between your receipt of the notice and the date to begin the withholding on the basis of the notice permits the employee to contact the IRS. 2010 amended tax return Seasonal employees and employees not currently performing services. 2010 amended tax return   If you receive a notice for an employee who is not currently performing services for you, you are still required to furnish the employee copy to the employee and withhold based on the notice if any of the following apply. 2010 amended tax return You are paying wages for the employee's prior services and the wages are subject to income tax withholding on or after the date specified in the notice. 2010 amended tax return You reasonably expect the employee to resume services within 12 months of the date of the notice. 2010 amended tax return The employee is on a bona fide leave of absence that does not exceed 12 months or the employee has a right to reemployment after the leave of absence. 2010 amended tax return Termination and re-hire of employees. 2010 amended tax return   If you are required to furnish and withhold based on the notice and the employment relationship is terminated after the date of the notice, you must continue to withhold based on the notice if you continue to pay any wages subject to income tax withholding. 2010 amended tax return You must also withhold based on the notice or modification notice (explained next) if the employee resumes the employment relationship with you within 12 months after the termination of the employment relationship. 2010 amended tax return Modification notice. 2010 amended tax return   After issuing the notice specifying the maximum number of withholding allowances and marital status permitted, the IRS may issue a subsequent notice (modification notice) that modifies the original notice. 2010 amended tax return The modification notice may change the marital status and/or the number of withholding allowances permitted. 2010 amended tax return You must withhold federal income tax based on the effective date specified in the modification notice. 2010 amended tax return New Form W-4 after IRS notice. 2010 amended tax return   After the IRS issues a notice or modification notice, if the employee provides you with a new Form W-4 claiming complete exemption from withholding or claims a marital status, a number of withholding allowances, and any additional withholding that results in less withholding than would result under the IRS notice or modification notice, you must disregard the new Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return You are required to withhold on the basis of the notice or modification notice unless the IRS subsequently notifies you to withhold based on the new Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return If the employee wants to put a new Form W-4 into effect that results in less withholding than required, the employee must contact the IRS. 2010 amended tax return   If, after you receive an IRS notice or modification notice, your employee provides you with a new Form W-4 that does not claim exemption from federal income tax withholding and claims a marital status, a number of withholding allowances, and any additional withholding that results in more withholding than would result under the notice or modification notice, you must withhold tax on the basis of that new Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return Otherwise, disregard any subsequent Forms W-4 provided by the employee and withhold based on the IRS notice or modification notice. 2010 amended tax return Substitute Forms W-4. 2010 amended tax return   You are encouraged to have your employees use the official version of Form W-4 to claim withholding allowances or exemption from withholding. 2010 amended tax return Call the IRS at 1-800-TAX-FORM (1-800-829-3676) or visit IRS. 2010 amended tax return gov to obtain copies of Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return   You may use a substitute version of Form W-4 to meet your business needs. 2010 amended tax return However, your substitute Form W-4 must contain language that is identical to the official Form W-4 and your form must meet all current IRS rules for substitute forms. 2010 amended tax return At the time that you provide your substitute form to the employee, you must provide him or her with all tables, instructions, and worksheets from the current Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return   You cannot accept a substitute Form W-4 developed by an employee, and the employee submitting such form will be treated as failing to furnish a Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return However, continue to use any valid Forms W-4 developed by your employees that you accepted before October 11, 2007. 2010 amended tax return Invalid Forms W-4. 2010 amended tax return   Any unauthorized change or addition to Form W-4 makes it invalid. 2010 amended tax return This includes taking out any language by which the employee certifies that the form is correct. 2010 amended tax return A Form W-4 is also invalid if, by the date an employee gives it to you, he or she indicates in any way that it is false. 2010 amended tax return An employee who submits a false Form W-4 may be subject to a $500 penalty. 2010 amended tax return You may treat a Form W-4 as invalid if the employee wrote “exempt” on line 7 and also entered a number on line 5 or an amount on line 6. 2010 amended tax return   When you get an invalid Form W-4, do not use it to figure federal income tax withholding. 2010 amended tax return Tell the employee that it is invalid and ask for another one. 2010 amended tax return If the employee does not give you a valid one, withhold taxes as if the employee was single and claiming no withholding allowances. 2010 amended tax return However, if you have an earlier Form W-4 for this worker that is valid, withhold as you did before. 2010 amended tax return   For additional information about these rules, see Treasury Decision 9337, 2007-35 I. 2010 amended tax return R. 2010 amended tax return B. 2010 amended tax return 455, available at www. 2010 amended tax return irs. 2010 amended tax return gov/irb/2007-35_IRB/ar10. 2010 amended tax return html. 2010 amended tax return Amounts exempt from levy on wages, salary, and other income. 2010 amended tax return   If you receive a Notice of Levy on Wages, Salary, and Other Income—Forms 668-W(ACS), 668-W(c)(DO), or 668-W(ICS), you must withhold amounts as described in the instructions for these forms. 2010 amended tax return Publication 1494, Tables for Figuring Amount Exempt From Levy on Wages, Salary, and Other Income—Forms 668-W(ACS), 668-W(c)(DO), and 668-W(ICS), shows the exempt amount. 2010 amended tax return If a levy issued in a prior year is still in effect and the taxpayer submits a new Statement of Exemptions and Filing Status, use the current year Publication 1494 to compute the exempt amount. 2010 amended tax return How To Figure Federal Income Tax Withholding There are several ways to figure federal income tax withholding. 2010 amended tax return Wage bracket tables. 2010 amended tax return See section 13 for directions on how to use the tables. 2010 amended tax return Percentage method. 2010 amended tax return See section 13 for directions on how to use the percentage method. 2010 amended tax return Alternative formula tables for percentage method withholding. 2010 amended tax return See Publication 15-A. 2010 amended tax return Wage bracket percentage method withholding tables. 2010 amended tax return See Publication 15-A. 2010 amended tax return Other alternative methods. 2010 amended tax return See Publication 15-A. 2010 amended tax return Employers with automated payroll systems will find the two alternative formula tables and the two alternative wage bracket percentage method tables in Publication 15-A useful. 2010 amended tax return If an employee wants additional federal tax withheld, have the employee show the extra amount on Form W-4. 2010 amended tax return Supplemental wages. 2010 amended tax return   Supplemental wages are wage payments to an employee that are not regular wages. 2010 amended tax return They include, but are not limited to, bonuses, commissions, overtime pay, accumulated sick leave, severance pay, awards, prizes, back pay and retroactive pay increases for current employees, and payments for nondeductible moving expenses. 2010 amended tax return Other payments subject to the supplemental wage rules include taxable fringe benefits and expense allowances paid under a nonaccountable plan. 2010 amended tax return   If you pay supplemental wages with regular wages but do not specify the amount of each, withhold federal income tax as if the total was a single payment for a regular payroll period. 2010 amended tax return   If you pay supplemental wages separately (or combine them in a single payment and specify the amount of each), the federal income tax withholding method depends partly on whether you withhold federal income tax from your employee's regular wages. 2010 amended tax return If you withheld federal income tax from an employee's regular wages in the current or immediately preceding calendar year, you can use one of the following methods for the supplemental wages. 2010 amended tax return Withhold a flat 25% (no other percentage allowed). 2010 amended tax return If the supplemental wages are paid concurrently with regular wages, add the supplemental wages to the concurrently paid regular wages. 2010 amended tax return If there are no concurrently paid regular wages, add the supplemental wages to alternatively, either the regular wages paid or to be paid for the current payroll period or the regular wages paid for the preceding payroll period. 2010 amended tax return Figure the income tax withholding as if the total of the regular wages and supplemental wages is a single payment. 2010 amended tax return Subtract the tax withheld from the regular wages. 2010 amended tax return Withhold the remaining tax from the supplemental wages. 2010 amended tax return If there were other payments of supplemental wages paid during the payroll period made before the current payment of supplemental wages, aggregate all the payments of supplemental wages paid during the payroll period with the regular wages paid during the payroll period, calculate the tax on the total, subtract the tax already withheld from the regular wages and previous supplemental wage payments, and withhold the remaining tax from the current payment of supplemental wages. 2010 amended tax return If you did not withhold federal income tax from the employee's regular wages in the current or immediately preceding calendar year, use method 1-b above. 2010 amended tax return This would occur, for example, when the value of the employee's withholding allowances claimed on Form W-4 is more than the wages. 2010 amended tax return    Separate rules apply to any supplemental wages exceeding $1 million that you pay to an individual during the year. 2010 amended tax return See section 7 in Publication 15 (Circular E) for details. 2010 amended tax return   Regardless of the method that you use to withhold federal income tax on supplemental wages, they are generally subject to social security, Medicare, and FUTA taxes. 2010 amended tax return 6. 2010 amended tax return Required Notice to Employees About Earned Income Credit (EIC) You must notify employees who have no federal income tax withheld that they may be able to claim a tax refund because of the EIC. 2010 amended tax return Although you do not have to notify employees who claim exemption from withholding on Form W-4 about the EIC, you are encouraged to notify any employees whose wages for 2013 were less than $46,227 ($51,567 if married filing jointly) that they may be eligible to claim the credit for 2013. 2010 amended tax return This is because eligible employees may get a refund of the amount of EIC that is more than the tax that they owe. 2010 amended tax return You will meet the notification requirement if you issue to the employee Form W-2 with the EIC notice on the back of Copy B, or a substitute Form W-2 with the same statement. 2010 amended tax return You may also meet the requirement by providing Notice 797, Possible Federal Tax Refund Due to the Earned Income Credit (EIC), or your own statement that contains the same wording. 2010 amended tax return If a substitute Form W-2 is given to the employee on time but does not have the required statement, you must notify the employee within 1 week of the date that the substitute Form W-2 is given. 2010 amended tax return If Form W-2 is required but is not given on time, you must give the employee Notice 797 or your written statement by the date that Form W-2 is required to be given. 2010 amended tax return If Form W-2 is not required, you must notify the employee by February 7, 2014. 2010 amended tax return 7. 2010 amended tax return Depositing Taxes Generally, you must deposit both the employer and employee shares of social security and Medicare taxes and federal income tax withheld. 2010 amended tax return You must use electronic funds transfer to make all federal tax deposits. 2010 amended tax return See How To Deposit , later in this section. 2010 amended tax return The credit against employment taxes for COBRA premium assistance payments is treated as a deposit of taxes on the first day of your return period. 2010 amended tax return For more information, see COBRA premium assistance credit under Introduction. 2010 amended tax return Payment with return. 2010 amended tax return   You may make payments with Forms 943 or 945 instead of depositing if one of the following applies. 2010 amended tax return You report less than a $2,500 tax liability for the year (Form 943, line 11; Form 945, line 3) and you pay in full with a return that is filed on time. 2010 amended tax return However, if you are unsure that you will report less than $2,500, deposit under the rules explained in this section so that you will not be subject to failure-to-deposit penalties. 2010 amended tax return You are a monthly schedule depositor and make a payment in accordance with the Accuracy of Deposits Rule discussed later in this section. 2010 amended tax return This payment may be $2,500 or more. 2010 amended tax return Only monthly schedule depositors, defined later, are allowed to make an Accuracy of Deposits Rule payment with the return. 2010 amended tax return Semiweekly schedule depositors must timely deposit the amount. 2010 amended tax return See Accuracy of Deposits Rule and How To Deposit, later in this section. 2010 amended tax return When To Deposit If you employ both farm and nonfarm workers, do not combine the taxes reportable on Forms 941 or 944 with Form 943 to decide whether to make a deposit. 2010 amended tax return See Employers of Both Farm and Nonfarm Workers, later in this section. 2010 amended tax return The rules for determining when to deposit Form 943 taxes are discussed below. 2010 amended tax return See section 10 for the separate rules that apply to FUTA tax. 2010 amended tax return Under these rules, you are classified as either a monthly schedule depositor or a semiweekly schedule depositor. 2010 amended tax return The terms “monthly schedule depositor” and “semiweekly schedule depositor” do not refer to how often your business pays its employees or how often you are required to make deposits. 2010 amended tax return The terms identify which set of rules you must follow when you incur a tax liability (for example, when you have a payday). 2010 amended tax return The deposit schedule that you must use for a calendar year is determined from the tax liability reported on your Form 943, line 9, for the lookback period, discussed next. 2010 amended tax return If you reported $50,000 or less of Form 943 taxes for the lookback period, you are a monthly schedule depositor. 2010 amended tax return If you reported more than $50,000 of Form 943 taxes for the lookback period, you are a semiweekly schedule depositor. 2010 amended tax return Lookback period. 2010 amended tax return   The lookback period is the second calendar year preceding the current calendar year. 2010 amended tax return For example, the lookback period for 2014 is 2012. 2010 amended tax return Example of deposit schedule based on lookback period. 2010 amended tax return Rose Co. 2010 amended tax return reported taxes on Form 943 as follows. 2010 amended tax return 2012 — $48,000 2013 — $60,000 Rose Co. 2010 amended tax return is a monthly schedule depositor for 2014 because its taxes for the lookback period ($48,000 for calendar year 2012) were not more than $50,000. 2010 amended tax return However, for 2015, Rose Co. 2010 amended tax return is a semiweekly schedule depositor because the total taxes before adjustment for its lookback period ($60,000 for calendar year 2013) exceeded $50,000. 2010 amended tax return Adjustments to lookback period taxes. 2010 amended tax return   To determine your taxes for the lookback period, use only the tax that you reported on the original return (Form 943, line 9). 2010 amended tax return Do not include adjustments shown on Form 943-X, Adjusted Employer's Annual Federal Tax Return for Agricultural Employees or Claim for Refund. 2010 amended tax return Example of adjustments. 2010 amended tax return An employer originally reported total tax of $45,000 for the lookback period in 2012. 2010 amended tax return The employer discovered during March 2014 that the tax reported for the lookback period was understated by $10,000 and corrected this error by filing Form 943-X. 2010 amended tax return The total tax reported in the lookback period is still $45,000. 2010 amended tax return The $10,000 adjustment is also not treated as part of the 2014 taxes. 2010 amended tax return Deposit period. 2010 amended tax return   The term “deposit period” refers to the period during which tax liabilities are accumulated for each required deposit due date. 2010 amended tax return For monthly schedule depositors, the deposit period is a calendar month. 2010 amended tax return The deposit periods for semiweekly schedule depositors are Wednesday through Friday and Saturday through Tuesday. 2010 amended tax return Monthly Deposit Schedule If the tax liability reported on Form 943, line 9, for the lookback period is $50,000 or less, you are a monthly schedule depositor for the current year. 2010 amended tax return You must deposit Form 943 taxes on payments made during a calendar month by the 15th day of the following month. 2010 amended tax return Monthly schedule example. 2010 amended tax return   Red Co. 2010 amended tax return is a seasonal employer and a monthly schedule depositor. 2010 amended tax return It pays wages each Friday. 2010 amended tax return It paid wages during August 2014, but did not pay any wages during September. 2010 amended tax return Red Co. 2010 amended tax return must deposit the combined tax liabilities for the August paydays by September 15. 2010 amended tax return Red Co. 2010 amended tax return does not have a deposit requirement for September (that is, due by October 15, 2014) because no wages were paid in September; therefore, it did not have a tax liability for September. 2010 amended tax return New employers. 2010 amended tax return   For agricultural employers, your tax liability for any year in the lookback period before the date you started or acquired your business is considered to be zero. 2010 amended tax return Therefore, you are a monthly schedule depositor for the first and second calendar years of your agricultural business (but see the $100,000 Next-Day Deposit Rule , later in this section). 2010 amended tax return Semiweekly Deposit Schedule You are a semiweekly schedule depositor for a calendar year if the tax liability on Form 943, line 9, during your lookback period was more than $50,000. 2010 amended tax return Under the semiweekly deposit schedule, deposit Form 943 taxes for payments made on Wednesday, Thursday, and/or Friday by the following Wednesday. 2010 amended tax return Deposit amounts accumulated for payments made on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and/or Tuesday by the following Friday. 2010 amended tax return Semiweekly depositors are not required to deposit twice a week if their payments were in the same semiweekly period unless the $100,000 Next-Day Deposit Rule (discussed later in this section) applies. 2010 amended tax return For example, if you made a payment on both Wednesday and Friday and incurred taxes of $10,000 for each pay

a semiweekly schedule depositor and pays wages once each month on the last Friday of the month. 2010 amended tax return Green, Inc. 2010 amended tax return , will deposit only once a month, but the deposit will be made under the semiweekly deposit schedule as follows. 2010 amended tax return Green, Inc. 2010 amended tax return 's tax liability for the April 25, 2014 (Friday), wage payment must be deposited by April 30, 2014 (Wednesday). 2010 amended tax return Semiweekly deposit period spanning two quarters. 2010 amended tax return   If you have more than one pay date during a semiweekly period and the pay dates fall in different calendar quarters, you will need to make separate deposits for the separate liabilities. 2010 amended tax return For example, if you have a pay date on Monday, March 31, 2014 (first quarter), and another pay date on Tuesday, April 1, 2014 (second quarter), two separate deposits will be required even though the pay dates fall within the same semiweekly period. 2010 amended tax return Both deposits will be due Friday, April 4, 2014 (3 business days from the end of the semiweekly deposit period). 2010 amended tax return Deposits on Business Days Only If a deposit is required to be made on a day that is not a business day, the deposit is considered timely if it is made by the close of the next business day. 2010 amended tax return A business day is any day other than a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday. 2010 amended tax return For example, if a deposit is required to be made on Friday and Friday is a legal holiday, the deposit is considered timely if it is made by the following Monday (if Monday is a business day). 2010 amended tax return Semiweekly schedule depositors   will always have 3 business days to make a deposit. 2010 amended tax return That is, if any of the 3 weekdays after the end of a semiweekly period is a legal holiday, you will have an additional day for each day that is a legal holiday to make the deposit. 2010 amended tax return For example, if a semiweekly schedule depositor accumulated taxes on Friday and the following Monday is a legal holiday, the deposit normally due on Wednesday may be made on Thursday (this allows 3 business days to make the deposit). 2010 amended tax return Legal holiday. 2010 amended tax return   The term “legal holiday” means any legal holiday in the District of

Day November 27— Thanksgiving Day December 25— Christmas Day $100,000 Next-Day Deposit Rule If you accumulate $100,000 or more of Form 943 taxes (that is, taxes reported on Form 943, line 11) on any day during a deposit period, you must deposit the tax by the close of the next business day, whether you are a monthly or a semiweekly schedule depositor. 2010 amended tax return For purposes of the $100,000 rule, do not continue accumulating a tax liability after the end of a deposit period. 2010 amended tax return For example, if a semiweekly schedule depositor has accumulated a liability of $95,000 on a Tuesday (of a Saturday-through-Tuesday deposit period) and accumulated a $10,000 liability on Wednesday, the $100,000 next-day deposit rule does not apply because the $10,000 is accumulated in the next deposit period. 2010 amended tax return Thus, $95,000 must be deposited by Friday and $10,000 must be deposited by the following Wednesday. 2010 amended tax return However, once you accumulate at least $100,000 in a deposit period, stop accumulating at the end of that day and begin to accumulate anew on the next day. 2010 amended tax return For example, Fir Co. 2010 amended tax return is a semiweekly schedule depositor. 2010 amended tax return On Monday, Fir Co. 2010 amended tax return accumulates taxes of $110,000 and must deposit this amount on Tuesday, the next business day. 2010 amended tax return On Tuesday, Fir Co. 2010 amended tax return accumulates additional taxes of $30,000. 2010 amended tax return Because the $30,000 is not added to the previous $110,000 and is less than $100,000, Fir Co. 2010 amended tax return does not have to deposit the $30,000 until Friday (following the semiweekly deposit schedule). 2010 amended tax return If you are a monthly schedule depositor and you accumulate a $100,000 tax liability on any day, you become a semiweekly schedule depositor on the next day and remain so for at least the rest of the calendar year and for the following calendar year. 2010 amended tax return Example of the $100,000 next-day deposit rule. 2010 amended tax return   Elm, Inc. 2010 amended tax return , started its business on May 1, 2014. 2010 amended tax return Because Elm, Inc. 2010 amended tax return , is a new employer, the taxes for its lookback period are considered to be zero; therefore, Elm, Inc. 2010 amended tax return , is a monthly schedule depositor. 2010 amended tax return On May 8, Elm, Inc. 2010 amended tax return , paid wages for the first time and accumulated taxes of $50,000. 2010 amended tax return On May 9 (Friday), Elm, Inc. 2010 amended tax return , paid wages and accumulated taxes of $60,000, for a total of $110,000. 2010 amended tax return Because Elm, Inc. 2010 amended tax return , accumulated $110,000 on May 9, it must deposit $110,000 by May 12 (Monday), the next business day. 2010 amended tax return Elm, Inc. 2010 amended tax return , became a semiweekly schedule depositor on May 10. 2010 amended tax return It will be a semiweekly schedule depositor for the remainder of 2014 and for 2015. 2010 amended tax return Accuracy of Deposits Rule You are required to deposit 100% of your tax liability on or before the deposit due date. 2010 amended tax return However, penalties will not be applied for depositing less than 100% if both of the following conditions are met. 2010 amended tax return Any deposit shortfall does not exceed the greater of $100 or 2% of the amount of taxes otherwise required to be deposited. 2010 amended tax return The deposit shortfall is paid or deposited by the shortfall makeup date as described below. 2010 amended tax return Makeup Date for Deposit Shortfall:    Monthly Schedule Depositor—Deposit the shortfall or pay it with your return by the due date of your Form 943. 2010 amended tax return You may pay the shortfall with your Form 943 even if the amount is $2,500 or more. 2010 amended tax return Semiweekly Schedule Depositor—Deposit by the earlier of (a) the first Wednesday or Friday (whichever comes first) that falls on or after the 15th of the month following the month in which the shortfall occurred, or (b) the due date for Form 943.
