State tax free Introduction This chapter discusses how to pay your U. State tax free S. State tax free income tax as you earn or receive income during the year. State tax free In general, the federal income tax is a pay as you go tax. State tax free There are two ways to pay as you go. State tax free Withholding. State tax free If you are an employee, your employer probably withholds income tax from your pay. State tax free Tax may also be withheld from certain other income—including pensions, bonuses, commissions, and gambling winnings. State tax free In each case, the amount withheld is paid to the U. State tax free S. State tax free Treasury in your name. State tax free Estimated tax. State tax free If you do not pay your tax through withholding, or do not pay enough tax that way, you might have to pay estimated tax. State tax free People who are in business for themselves generally will have to pay their tax this way. State tax free You may have to pay estimated tax if you receive income such as dividends, interest, rent, and royalties. State tax free Estimated tax is used to pay not only income tax, but self-employment tax and alternative minimum tax as well.

State tax free Notification of Alien Status You must let your employer know whether you are a resident or a nonresident alien so your employer can withhold the correct amount of tax from your wages. State tax free If you are a resident alien under the rules discussed in chapter 1, you must file Form W-9 or a similar statement with your employer. State tax free If you are a nonresident alien under those rules, you must furnish to your employer Form 8233 or Form W-8BEN, establishing that you are a foreign person, or Form W-4, establishing that your compensation is subject to graduated withholding at the same rates as resident aliens or U. State tax free S. State tax free citizens. State tax free If you are a resident alien and you receive income other than wages (such as dividends and royalties) from sources within the United States, file Form W-9 or similar statement with the withholding agent (generally, the payer of the income) so the agent will not withhold tax on the income at the 30% (or lower treaty) rate. State tax free If you receive this type of income as a nonresident alien, file Form W-8BEN with the withholding agent so that the agent will withhold tax at the 30% (or lower treaty) rate. State tax free However, if the income is effectively connected with a U. State tax free S. State tax free trade or business, file Form W-8ECI instead. State tax free Withholding From Compensation The following discussion generally applies only to nonresident aliens. State tax free Tax is withheld from resident aliens in the same manner as U. State tax free S. State tax free citizens. State tax free Wages and other compensation paid to a nonresident alien for services performed as an employee are usually subject to graduated withholding at the same rates as resident aliens and U. State tax free S. State tax free citizens. State tax free Therefore, your compensation, unless it is specifically excluded from the term “wages” by law, or is exempt from tax by treaty, is subject to graduated withholding. State tax free Withholding on Wages If you are an employee and you receive wages subject to graduated withholding, you will be required to fill out a Form W-4. State tax free Also fill out Form W-4 for a scholarship or fellowship grant to the extent it represents payment for past, present, or future services and for which you are not claiming a tax treaty withholding exemption on Form 8233 (discussed later under Income Entitled to Tax Treaty Benefits). State tax free These are services you are required to perform as an employee and as a condition of receiving the scholarship or fellowship (or tuition reduction). State tax free Nonresident aliens should fill out Form W-4 using the following instructions instead of the instructions on the Form W-4. State tax free This is because of the restrictions on a nonresident alien's filing status, the limited number of personal exemptions a nonresident alien is allowed, and because a nonresident alien cannot claim the standard deduction. State tax free Enter your social security number (SSN) on line 2. State tax free Do not enter an individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN). State tax free Check only “Single” marital status on line 3 (regardless of your actual marital status). State tax free Claim only one allowance on line 5, unless you are a resident of Canada, Mexico, or South Korea, or a U. State tax free S. State tax free national. State tax free Write “Nonresident Alien” or “NRA” on the dotted line on line 6. State tax free You can request additional withholding on line 6 at your option. State tax free Do not claim “Exempt” withholding status on line 7. State tax free A U. State tax free S. State tax free national is an individual who, although not a U. State tax free S. State tax free citizen, owes his or her allegiance to the United States. State tax free U. State tax free S. State tax free nationals include American Samoans, and Northern Mariana Islanders who chose to become U. State tax free S. State tax free nationals instead of U. State tax free S. State tax free citizens. State tax free See Withholding on Scholarships and Fellowship Grants later, for how to fill out Form W-4 if you receive a U. State tax free S. State tax free source scholarship or fellowship grant that is not a payment for services. State tax free Students and business apprentices from India. State tax free   If you are eligible for the benefits of Article 21(2) of the United States-India Income Tax Treaty, you may claim an additional withholding allowance for the standard deduction. State tax free You can claim an additional withholding allowance for your spouse only if your spouse will have no gross income for 2013 and cannot be claimed as a dependent on another U. State tax free S. State tax free taxpayer's 2013 return. State tax free You may also claim an additional withholding allowance for each of your dependents not admitted to the United States on “F-2,” “J-2,” or “M-2” visas if they meet the same rules that apply to U. State tax free S. State tax free citizens. State tax free Household employees. State tax free   If you work as a household employee, your employer does not have to withhold income tax. State tax free However, you may agree to voluntary income tax withholding by filing a Form W-4 with your employer. State tax free The agreement goes into effect when your employer accepts the agreement by beginning the withholding. State tax free You or your employer may end the agreement by letting the other know in writing. State tax free Agricultural workers. State tax free   If you are an agricultural worker on an H-2A visa, your employer does not have to withhold income tax. State tax free However, your employer will withhold income tax only if you and your employer agree to withhold. State tax free In that case, you must provide your employer with a properly completed Form W-4. State tax free You can find more information about not having tax withheld at www. State tax free irs. State tax free gov/Individuals/International-Taxpayers/Foreign-Agricultural-Workers. State tax free Wages Exempt From Withholding Wages that are exempt from U. State tax free S. State tax free income tax under an income tax treaty are generally exempt from withholding. State tax free For information on how to claim this exemption from withholding, see Income Entitled to Tax Treaty Benefits , later. State tax free Wages paid to aliens who are residents of American Samoa, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, or the U. State tax free S. State tax free Virgin Islands may be exempt from withholding. State tax free The following paragraphs explain these exemptions. State tax free Residents of Canada or Mexico engaged in transportation-related employment.

State tax free These persons either: Perform duties in transportation service between the United States and Canada or Mexico, or Perform duties connected to the construction, maintenance, or operation of a waterway, viaduct, dam, or bridge crossed by, or crossing, the boundary between the United States and Canada or the boundary between the United States and Mexico. State tax free    This employment is subject to withholding of social security and Medicare taxes unless the services are performed for a railroad. State tax free   To qualify for the exemption from withholding during a tax year, a Canadian or Mexican resident must give the employer a statement in duplicate with name, address, and identification number, certifying that the resident: Is not a U. State tax free S. State tax free citizen or resident, Is a resident of Canada or Mexico, whichever applies, and Expects to perform duties previously described during the tax year in question. State tax free   The statement can be in any form, but it must be dated and signed by the employee and must include a written declaration that it is made under the penalties of perjury. State tax free Residents of American Samoa and Puerto Rico. State tax free   If you are a nonresident alien employee who is a resident of American Samoa or Puerto Rico, wages for services performed in American Samoa or Puerto Rico are generally not subject to withholding unless you are an employee of the United States or any of its agencies in American Samoa or Puerto Rico. State tax free Residents of the U. State tax free S. State tax free Virgin Islands. State tax free   Nonresident aliens who are bona fide residents of the U. State tax free S Virgin Islands are not subject to withholding of U. State tax free S. State tax free tax on income earned while temporarily employed in the United States. State tax free This is because those persons pay their income tax to the U. State tax free S. State tax free Virgin Islands. State tax free To avoid having tax withheld on income earned in the United States, bona fide residents of the U. State tax free S. State tax free Virgin Islands should write a letter, in duplicate, to their employers, stating that they are bona fide residents of the U. State tax free S. State tax free Virgin Islands and expect to pay tax on all income to the U. State tax free S. State tax free Virgin Islands. State tax free Withholding on Pensions If you receive a pension as a result of personal services performed in the United States, the pension income is subject to the 30% (or lower treaty) rate of withholding.

State tax free You must fill out Form W-8BEN and give it to the withholding agent or payer before the income is paid or credited to you. State tax free Withholding on Tip Income Tips you receive during the year for services performed in the United States are subject to U. State tax free S. State tax free income tax. State tax free Include them in taxable income. State tax free In addition, tips received while working for one employer, amounting to $20 or more in a month, are subject to graduated withholding. State tax free Independent Contractors If there is no employee-employer relationship between you and the person for whom you perform services, your compensation is subject to the 30% (or lower treaty) rate of withholding. State tax free However, if you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States during the tax year, your compensation for personal services as an independent contractor (independent personal services) may be entirely or partly exempt from withholding if you reach an agreement with the Internal Revenue Service on the amount of withholding required. State tax free An agreement that you reach with the IRS regarding withholding from your compensation for independent personal services is effective for payments covered by the agreement after it is agreed to by all parties. State tax free You must agree to timely file an income tax return for the current tax year. State tax free Central withholding agreements. State tax free   If you are a nonresident alien entertainer or athlete performing or participating in athletic events in the United States, you may be able to enter into a withholding agreement with the IRS for reduced withholding provided certain requirements are met. State tax free Under no circumstances will such a withholding agreement reduce taxes withheld to less than the anticipated amount of income tax liability. State tax free   File Form 13930 and the required attachments with the IRS to request a central withholding agreement. State tax free Either you or your authorized representative can file the form. State tax free It should be sent to the IRS at least 45 days before the tour begins or the event occurs. State tax free Exceptions will be considered on a case by case basis.

State tax free You must give two copies of the letter to the withholding agent and must also attach a copy of the letter to your income tax return for the tax year for which the exemption is effective. State tax free Allowance for Personal Exemption Withholding on payments for independent personal services is generally based on the amount of your compensation payment minus the value of one exemption ($3,950 for 2014). State tax free To determine the income for independent personal services performed in the United States to which the 30% (or lower treaty) rate will apply, you are allowed one personal exemption if you are not a U. State tax free S. State tax free national and are not a resident of Canada, Mexico, or South Korea. State tax free For purposes of 30% withholding, the exemption is prorated at $10.

State tax free 82), and withholding at 30% is applied against the balance. State tax free Thus, $1,475. State tax free 40 in tax is withheld from Eric's earnings (30% of $4,918 ($6,000 − $1,082).

State tax free You are also allowed an exemption for each dependent not admitted to the United States on “F-2,” “J-2,” or “M-2” visas if they meet the same rules that apply to U. State tax free S. State tax free citizens. State tax free For the 30% (or lower treaty rate) withholding on compensation for independent personal services performed in the United States, you are allowed $10. State tax free 82 per day for each allowable exemption in 2014. State tax free Refund of Taxes Withheld in Error Multi-level marketing.
