Form 1040 ez Generally, electronic funds transfers are made using the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS).

Form 1040 ez Also, you may arrange for your financial institution to initiate a same-day wire payment on your behalf. Form 1040 ez EFTPS is a free service provided by the Department of Treasury.

Form 1040 ez You will receive a separate mailing containing instructions for activating your EFTPS enrollment after you receive your EIN. Form 1040 ez When To Make Deposits There are two methods for determining deposits: the regular method and the alternative method. Form 1040 ez The regular method applies to all taxes in Part I of Form 720 except for communications and air transportation taxes if deposits are based on amounts billed or tickets sold, rather than on amounts actually collected. Form 1040 ez See Alternative method below. Form 1040 ez If you are depositing more than one tax under a method, combine all the taxes under the method and make one deposit for the semimonthly period. Form 1040 ez Regular method. Form 1040 ez The deposit of tax for a semimonthly period is due by the 14th day following that period. Form 1040 ez 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. Form 1040 ez If the 14th or the 29th day falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, you must make the deposit by the immediately preceding day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday. Form 1040 ez Alternative method (IRS Nos. Form 1040 ez 22, 26, 27, and 28). Form 1040 ez 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. Form 1040 ez 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. Form 1040 ez The deposit of tax is due by the 3rd banking day after the 7th day of that period. Form 1040 ez For an example of the alternative method, see the Instructions for Form 720. Form 1040 ez 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. Form 1040 ez 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. Form 1040 ez 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). Form 1040 ez The separate account for any month cannot include an adjustment resulting from a refusal to pay or inability to collect unless the refusal has been reported to the IRS. Form 1040 ez See Uncollected Tax Report in chapter 4. Form 1040 ez The net amount of tax that is considered collected during the semimonthly period must be either: The net amount of tax reflected in the separate account for the corresponding semimonthly period of the preceding month, or One-half of the net amount of tax reflected in the separate account for the preceding month. Form 1040 ez Special rule for deposits of taxes in September. Form 1040 ez See the Instructions for Form 720 for a special rule on deposits made in September. Form 1040 ez Amount of Deposits Deposits for a semimonthly period generally must be at least 95% of the net tax liability for that period unless the safe harbor rule (discussed later) applies. Form 1040 ez Generally, you do not have to make a deposit for a period in which you incurred no tax liability. Form 1040 ez Net tax liability. Form 1040 ez Your net tax liability is your tax liability for the period minus any claims on Schedule C (Form 720) for the period. Form 1040 ez You may figure your net tax liability for a semimonthly period by dividing your net liability incurred during the calendar month by two. Form 1040 ez If you use this method, you must use it for all semimonthly periods in the calendar quarter. Form 1040 ez Do not reduce your liability by any amounts from Form 720X. Form 1040 ez Safe Harbor Rule The safe harbor rule applies separately to deposits under the regular method and the alternative method. Form 1040 ez Persons who filed Form 720 for the look-back quarter (the 2nd calendar quarter preceding the current quarter) are considered to meet the semimonthly deposit requirement if the deposit for each semimonthly period in the current quarter is at least 1/6 (16. Form 1040 ez 67%) of the net tax liability reported for the look-back quarter. Form 1040 ez For the semimonthly period for which the additional deposit is required, the additional deposit must be at least 11/90 12. Form 1040 ez 23%), 10/90 (11. Form 1040 ez 12%) for non-EFTPS, of the net tax liability reported for the look-back quarter. Form 1040 ez Also, the total deposit for that semimonthly period must be at least 1/6 (16. Form 1040 ez 67%) of the net tax liability reported for the look-back quarter. Form 1040 ez Exceptions. Form 1040 ez The safe harbor rule does not apply to: The 1st and 2nd quarters beginning on or after the effective date of an increase in the rate of tax unless the deposit of taxes for each semimonthly period in the calendar quarter is at least 1/6 (16. Form 1040 ez 67%) of the tax liability you would have had for the look-back quarter if the increased rate of tax had been in effect for that look-back quarter, Any quarter if liability includes any tax not in effect throughout the look-back quarter, or For deposits under the alternative method, any quarter if liability includes any tax not in effect throughout the look-back quarter and the month preceding the look-back quarter. Form 1040 ez Requirements to be met. Form 1040 ez For the safe harbor rule to apply, you must: Make each deposit timely at an authorized financial institution, and Pay any underpayment for the current quarter by the due date of the return. Form 1040 ez The IRS may withdraw the right to make deposits of tax using the safe harbor rule from any person not complying with these rules. Form 1040 ez Tax rate increases. Form 1040 ez You must modify the safe harbor rule if there has been an increase in the rate of tax. Form 1040 ez You must figure your tax liability in the look-back quarter as if the increased rate had been in effect. Form 1040 ez To qualify for the safe harbor rule, your deposits cannot be less than 1/6 of the refigured tax liability. Form 1040 ez Prev Up Next Home More Online Publications
