ez   You must keep a daily tip record so you can: Report your tips accurately to your employer, Report your tips accurately on your tax return, and Prove your tip income if your return is ever questioned. 2011 1040 ez How to keep a daily tip record. 2011 1040 ez   There are two ways to keep a daily tip record. 2011 1040 ez You can either: Write information about your tips in a tip diary, or Keep copies of documents that show your tips, such as restaurant bills and credit or debit card charge slips. 2011 1040 ez You should keep your daily tip record with your tax or other personal records. 2011 1040 ez You must keep your records for as long as they are important for administration of the federal tax law. 2011 1040 ez For information on how long to keep records, see How Long to Keep Records in chapter 1 of Publication 17, Your Federal Income Tax. 2011 1040 ez    If you keep a tip diary, you can use Form 4070A, Employee's Daily Record of Tips. 2011 1040 ez To get Form 4070A, ask the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or your employer for Publication 1244, Employee's Daily Record of Tips and Report to Employer. 2011 1040 ez Publication 1244 is also available at www. 2011 1040 ez irs. 2011 1040 ez gov/pub1244. 2011 1040 ez Publication 1244 includes a 1-year supply of Form 4070A. 2011 1040 ez Each day, write in the information asked for on the form. 2011 1040 ez A filled-in Form 4070A is shown on the following page. 2011 1040 ez   In addition to the information asked for on Form 4070A, you also need to keep a record of the date and value of any noncash tips you get, such as tickets, passes, or other items of value. 2011 1040 ez Although you do not report these tips to your employer, you must report them on your tax return. 2011 1040 ez   If you do not use Form 4070A, start your records by writing your name, your employer's name, and the name of the business (if it is different from your employer's name). 2011 1040 ez Then, each workday, write the date and the following information. 2011 1040 ez Cash tips you get directly from customers or from other employees. 2011 1040 ez Tips from credit and debit card charge customers that your employer pays you. 2011 1040 ez The value of any noncash tips you get, such as tickets, passes, or other items of value. 2011 1040 ez The amount of tips you paid out to other employees through tip pools or tip splitting, or

Publication 1244 Electronic tip record. 2011 1040 ez   You can use an electronic system provided by your employer to record your daily tips. 2011 1040 ez If you do, you must receive and keep a paper copy of this record. 2011 1040 ez Service charges. 2011 1040 ez    Do not write in your tip diary the amount of any service charge that your employer adds to a customer's bill and then pays to you and treats as wages. 2011 1040 ez This is part of your wages, not a tip. 2011 1040 ez The following factors determine if you have a tip or service charge: The payment is made free from compulsion; The customer has the right to determine the amount of payment; The payment is not subject to negotiation or dictated by employer policy; and The customer generally has the right to determine who receives the payment. 2011 1040 ez See examples below. 2011 1040 ez Example 1. 2011 1040 ez Good Food Restaurant adds an 18% charge to the bill for parties of 6 or more customers. 2011 1040 ez Jane's bill for food and beverages for her party of 8 includes an amount on the tip line equal to 18% of the charges for food and beverages, and the total includes this amount. 2011 1040 ez Because Jane did not have an unrestricted right to determine the amount on the “tip line,” the 18% charge is considered a service charge. 2011 1040 ez Do not include the 18% charge in your tip diary. 2011 1040 ez Service charges that are paid to you are considered wages, not tips. 2011 1040 ez Example 2. 2011 1040 ez Good Food Restaurant includes sample calculations of tip amounts at the bottom of its bills for food and beverages provided to customers. 2011 1040 ez David's bill includes a blank “tip line,” with sample tip calculations of 15%, 18%, and 20% of the charges for food and beverages at the bottom of the bill beneath the signature line. 2011 1040 ez Because David is free to enter any amount on the “tip line” or leave it blank, any amount he includes is considered a tip. 2011 1040 ez Be sure to include this amount in your tip diary. 2011 1040 ez Sample Filled-in Form 4070 from Publication 1244 Please click here for the text description of the image. 2011 1040 ez Filled-in Form 4070 Reporting Tips to

tips. 2011 1040 ez How to report. 2011 1040 ez   If your employer does not give you any other way to report your tips, you can use Form 4070, Employee's Report of Tips to Employer. 2011 1040 ez Fill

lower rate. 2011 1040 ez Either the employer or the employees can request approval of a lower rate by filing a petition with the IRS. 2011 1040 ez The petition must include specific information about
