To Make Deposits There are two methods for determining deposits: the regular method and the alternative method. 2013 federal tax form 1040ez The regular method applies to all taxes in Part I of Form

Generally, this is the 29th day of a month for the first semimonthly period and the 14th day of the following month for the second semimonthly period. 2013 federal tax form 1040ez If the 14th or the

Alternative method (IRS Nos. 2013 federal tax form 1040ez 22, 26, 27, and 28). 2013 federal tax form 1040ez   Deposits of communications and air transportation taxes may be based on taxes included in amounts billed or tickets sold during a semimonthly period instead of on taxes actually collected during the period. 2013 federal tax form 1040ez Under the alternative method, the tax included in amounts billed or tickets sold during a semimonthly period is considered collected during the first 7 days of the second following semimonthly period. 2013 federal tax form 1040ez The deposit of tax is due by the 3rd banking day after the 7th day of that period. 2013 federal tax form 1040ez   For an example of the alternative method, see the Instructions for Form 720. 2013 federal tax form 1040ez To use the alternative method, you must keep a separate account of the tax included in amounts billed or tickets sold during the month and report on Form 720 the tax included in amounts billed or tickets sold and not the amount of tax that is actually collected. 2013 federal tax form 1040ez For example, amounts billed in December, January, and February are considered collected during January, February, and March and are reported on Form 720 as the tax for the 1st quarter of the calendar year. 2013 federal tax form 1040ez The separate account for each month must reflect: All items of tax included in amounts billed or tickets sold during the month, and Other items of adjustment relating to tax for prior months (within the statute of limitations on credits or refunds). 2013 federal tax

form 1040ez See Uncollected Tax Report in chapter 4. 2013 federal tax form 1040ez The net amount of tax that is considered collected during the semimonthly period must be either: The net amount of tax

calendar quarter. 2013 federal tax form 1040ez Do not reduce your liability by any amounts from Form 720X. 2013 federal tax form 1040ez Safe Harbor Rule The safe harbor rule applies separately to
