E file 1040x free 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. E file 1040x free You should keep your daily tip record with your tax or other personal records. E file 1040x free You must keep your records for as long as they are important for administration of the federal tax law. E file 1040x free For information on how long to keep records, see How long to keep records in chapter 1. E file 1040x free    If you keep a tip diary, you can use Form 4070A, Employee's Daily Record of Tips. E file 1040x free To get Form 4070A, ask the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or your employer for Publication 1244. E file 1040x free Also, Publication 1244 is available online at www. E file 1040x free irs. E file 1040x free gov/pub/irs-pdf/p1244. E file 1040x free pdf. E file 1040x free Publication 1244 includes a 1-year supply of Form 4070A. E file 1040x free Each day, write in the information asked for on the form. E file 1040x free   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. E file 1040x free Although you do not report these tips to your employer, you must report them on your tax return. E file 1040x free   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). E file 1040x free Then, each workday, write the date and the following information. E file 1040x free Cash tips you get directly from customers or from other employees.

E file 1040x free If you do, you must receive and keep a paper copy of this record. E file 1040x free Service charges. E file 1040x free    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. E file 1040x free This is part of your wages, not a tip. E file 1040x free See examples below. E file 1040x free Example 1. E file 1040x free Good Food Restaurant adds an 18% charge to the bill for parties of 6 or more customers. E file 1040x free 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. E file 1040x free Because Jane did not have an unrestricted right to determine the amount on the “tip line,” the 18% charge is considered a service charge. E file 1040x free Do not include the 18% charge in your tip diary. E file 1040x free Service charges that are paid to you are considered wages, not tips. E file 1040x free Example 2.
