International student tax return Completing Form W-4 and Worksheets Form W-4 has worksheets to help you figure how many withholding allowances you can claim. International student tax return The worksheets are for your own records. International student tax return Do not give them to your employer. International student tax return Multiple jobs. International student tax return   If you have income from more than one job at the same time, complete only one set of Form W-4 worksheets. International student tax return Then split your allowances between the Forms W-4 for each job. International student tax return You cannot claim the same allowances with more than one employer at the same time. International student tax return You can claim all your allowances with one employer and none with the other(s), or divide them any other way. International student tax return Married individuals. International student tax return   If both you and your spouse are employed and expect to file a joint return, figure your withholding allowances using your combined income, adjustments, deductions, exemptions, and credits. International student tax return Use only one set of worksheets. International student tax return You can divide your total allowances any way, but you cannot claim an allowance that your spouse also claims. International student tax return   If you and your spouse expect to file separate returns, figure your allowances using separate worksheets based on your own individual income, adjustments, deductions, exemptions, and credits. International student tax return Alternative method of figuring withholding allowances. International student tax return   You do not have to use the Form W-4 worksheets if you use a more accurate method of figuring the number of withholding allowances. International student tax return For more information, see Alternative method of figuring withholding allowances under Completing Form W-4 and Worksheets in Publication 505, chapter 1. International student tax return Personal Allowances Worksheet. International student tax return   Use the Personal Allowances Worksheet on Form W-4 to figure your withholding allowances based on exemptions and any special allowances that apply. International student tax return Deduction and Adjustments Worksheet. International student tax return   Use the Deduction and Adjustments Worksheet on Form W-4 if you plan to itemize your deductions, claim certain credits, or claim adjustments to the income on your 2014 tax return and you want to reduce your withholding. International student tax return Also, complete this worksheet when you have changes to these items to see if you need to change your withholding. International student tax return Two-Earners/Multiple Jobs Worksheet. International student tax return   You may need to complete the Two-Earners/Multiple Jobs Worksheet on Form W-4 if you have more than one job, a working spouse, or are also receiving a pension. International student tax return Also, on this worksheet you can add any additional withholding necessary to cover any amount you expect to owe other than income tax, such as self-employment tax. International student tax return Getting the Right Amount of Tax Withheld In most situations, the tax withheld from your pay will be close to the tax you figure on your return if you follow these two rules. International student tax return You accurately complete all the Form W-4 worksheets that apply to you. International student tax return You give your employer a new Form W-4 when changes occur. International student tax return But because the worksheets and withholding methods do not account for all possible situations, you may not be getting the right amount withheld. International student tax return This is most likely to happen in the following situations. International student tax return You are married and both you and your spouse work. International student tax return You have more than one job at a time. International student tax return You have nonwage income, such as interest, dividends, alimony, unemployment compensation, or self-employment income. International student tax return You will owe additional amounts with your return, such as self-employment tax. International student tax return Your withholding is based on obsolete Form W-4 information for a substantial part of the year. International student tax return Your earnings are more than the amount shown under Check your withholding in the instructions at the top of page 1 of Form W-4. International student tax return You work only part of the year. International student tax return You change the number of your withholding allowances during the year. International student tax return Cumulative wage method. International student tax return   If you change the number of your withholding allowances during the year, too much or too little tax may have been withheld for the period before you made the change. International student tax return You may be able to compensate for this if your employer agrees to use the cumulative wage withholding method for the rest of the year. International student tax return You must ask your employer in writing to use this method. International student tax return   To be eligible, you must have been paid for the same kind of payroll period (weekly, biweekly, etc. International student tax return ) since the beginning of the year. International student tax return Publication 505 To make sure you are getting the right amount of tax withheld, get Publication 505. International student tax return It will help you compare the total tax to be withheld during the year with the tax you can expect to figure on your return. International student tax return It also will help you determine how much, if any, additional withholding is needed each payday to avoid owing tax when you file your return. International student tax return If you do not have enough tax withheld, you may have to pay estimated tax, as explained under Estimated Tax for 2014 , later. International student tax return You can use the IRS Withholding Calculator at www. International student tax return irs. International student tax return gov/Individuals, instead of Publication 505 or the worksheets included with Form W-4, to determine whether you need to have your withholding increased or decreased. International student tax return Rules Your Employer Must Follow It may be helpful for you to know some of the withholding rules your employer must follow. International student tax return These rules can affect how to fill out your Form W-4 and how to handle problems that may arise. International student tax return New Form W-4. International student tax return   When you start a new job, your employer should have you complete a Form W-4. International student tax return Beginning with your first payday, your employer will use the information you give on the form to figure your withholding. International student tax return   If you later fill out a new Form W-4, your employer can put it into effect as soon as possible. International student tax return The deadline for putting it into effect is the start of the first payroll period ending 30 or more days after you turn it in. International student tax return No Form W-4. International student tax return   If you do not give your employer a completed Form W-4, your employer must withhold at the highest rate, as if you were single and claimed no withholding allowances. International student tax return Repaying withheld tax. International student tax return   If you find you are having too much tax withheld because you did not claim all the withholding allowances you are entitled to, you should give your employer a new Form W-4. International student tax return Your employer cannot repay any of the tax previously withheld. International student tax return Instead, claim the full amount withheld when you file your tax return. International student tax return   However, if your employer has withheld more than the correct amount of tax for the Form W-4 you have in effect, you do not have to fill out a new Form W-4 to have your withholding lowered to the correct amount. International student tax return Your employer can repay the amount that was withheld incorrectly. International student tax return If you are not repaid, your Form W-2 will reflect the full amount actually withheld, which you would claim when you file your tax return. International student tax return Exemption From Withholding If you claim exemption from withholding, your employer will not withhold federal income tax from your wages. International student tax return The exemption applies only to income tax, not to social security or Medicare tax. International student tax return You can claim exemption from withholding for 2014 only if both of the following situations apply. International student tax return For 2013 you had a right to a refund of all federal income tax withheld because you had no tax liability. International student tax return For 2014 you expect a refund of all federal income tax withheld because you expect to have no tax liability. International student tax return Students. International student tax return   If you are a student, you are not automatically exempt. International student tax return See chapter 1 to find out if you must file a return. International student tax return If you work only part time or only during the summer, you may qualify for exemption from withholding. International student tax return Age 65 or older or blind. International student tax return   If you are 65 or older or blind, use Worksheet 1-3 or 1-4 in chapter 1 of Publication 505, to help you decide if you qualify for exemption from withholding. International student tax return Do not use either worksheet if you will itemize deductions, claim exemptions for dependents, or claim tax credits on your 2014 return. International student tax return Instead, see Itemizing deductions or claiming exemptions or credits in chapter 1 of Publication 505. International student tax return Claiming exemption from withholding. International student tax return   To claim exemption, you must give your employer a Form W-4. International student tax return Do not complete lines 5 and 6. International student tax return Enter “Exempt” on line 7. International student tax return   If you claim exemption, but later your situation changes so that you will have to pay income tax after all, you must file a new Form W-4 within 10 days after the change. International student tax return If you claim exemption in 2014, but you expect to owe income tax for 2015, you must file a new Form W-4 by December 1, 2014. International student tax return   Your claim of exempt status may be reviewed by the IRS. International student tax return An exemption is good for only 1 year. International student tax return   You must give your employer a new Form W-4 by February 15 each year to continue your exemption. International student tax return Supplemental Wages Supplemental wages include bonuses, commissions, overtime pay, vacation allowances, certain sick pay, and expense allowances under certain plans. International student tax return The payer can figure withholding on supplemental wages using the same method used for your regular wages. International student tax return However, if these payments are identified separately from your regular wages, your employer or other payer of supplemental wages can withhold income tax from these wages at a flat rate. International student tax return Expense allowances. International student tax return   Reimbursements or other expense allowances paid by your employer under a nonaccountable plan are treated as supplemental wages. International student tax return   Reimbursements or other expense allowances paid under an accountable plan that are more than your proven expenses are treated as paid under a nonaccountable plan if you do not return the excess payments within a reasonable period of time. International student tax return   For more information about accountable and nonaccountable expense allowance plans, see Reimbursements in chapter 26. International student tax return Penalties You may have to pay a penalty of $500 if both of the following apply. International student tax return You make statements or claim withholding allowances on your Form W-4 that reduce the amount of tax withheld. International student tax return You have no reasonable basis for those statements or allowances at the time you prepare your Form W-4. International student tax return There is also a criminal penalty for willfully supplying false or fraudulent information on your Form W-4 or for willfully failing to supply information that would increase the amount withheld. International student tax return The penalty upon conviction can be either a fine of up to $1,000 or imprisonment for up to 1 year, or both. International student tax return These penalties will apply if you deliberately and knowingly falsify your Form W-4 in an attempt to reduce or eliminate the proper withholding of taxes. International student tax return A simple error or an honest mistake will not result in one of these penalties. International student tax return For example, a person who has tried to figure the number of withholding allowances correctly, but claims seven when the proper number is six, will not be charged a W-4 penalty. International student tax return Tips The tips you receive while working on your job are considered part of your pay. International student tax return You must include your tips on your tax return on the same line as your regular pay. International student tax return However, tax is not withheld directly from tip income, as it is from your regular pay. International student tax return Nevertheless, your employer will take into account the tips you report when figuring how much to withhold from your regular pay. International student tax return See chapter 6 for information on reporting your tips to your employer. International student tax return For more information on the withholding rules for tip income, see Publication 531, Reporting Tip Income. International student tax return How employer figures amount to withhold. International student tax return   The tips you report to your employer are counted as part of your income for the month you report them. International student tax return Your employer can figure your withholding in either of two ways. International student tax return By withholding at the regular rate on the sum of your pay plus your reported tips. International student tax return By withholding at the regular rate on your pay plus a percentage of your reported tips. International student tax return Not enough pay to cover taxes. International student tax return   If your regular pay is not enough for your employer to withhold all the tax (including income tax and social security and Medicare taxes (or the equivalent railroad retirement tax)) due on your pay plus your tips, you can give your employer money to cover the shortage. International student tax return See Giving your employer money for taxes in chapter 6. International student tax return Allocated tips. International student tax return   Your employer should not withhold income tax, Medicare tax, social security tax, or railroad retirement tax on any allocated tips. International student tax return Withholding is based only on your pay plus your reported tips. International student tax return Your employer should refund to you any incorrectly withheld tax. International student tax return See Allocated Tips in chapter 6 for more information. International student tax return Taxable Fringe Benefits The value of certain noncash fringe benefits you receive from your employer is considered part of your pay. International student tax return Your employer generally must withhold income tax on these benefits from your regular pay. International student tax return For information on fringe benefits, see Fringe Benefits under Employee Compensation in chapter 5. International student tax return Although the value of your personal use of an employer-provided car, truck, or other highway motor vehicle is taxable, your employer can choose not to withhold income tax on that amount. International student tax return Your employer must notify you if this choice is made. International student tax return For more information on withholding on taxable fringe benefits, see chapter 1 of Publication 505. International student tax return Sick Pay Sick pay is a payment to you to replace your regular wages while you are temporarily absent from work due to sickness or personal injury. International student tax return To qualify as sick pay, it must be paid under a plan to which your employer is a party. International student tax return If you receive sick pay from your employer or an agent of your employer, income tax must be withheld. International student tax return An agent who does not pay regular wages to you may choose to withhold income tax at a flat rate. International student tax return However, if you receive sick pay from a third party who is not acting as an agent of your employer, income tax will be withheld only if you choose to have it withheld. International student tax return See Form W-4S , later. International student tax return If you receive payments under a plan in which your employer does not participate (such as an accident or health plan where you paid all the premiums), the payments are not sick pay and usually are not taxable. International student tax return Union agreements. International student tax return   If you receive sick pay under a collective bargaining agreement between your union and your employer, the agreement may determine the amount of income tax withholding. International student tax return See your union representative or your employer for more information. International student tax return Form W-4S. International student tax return   If you choose to have income tax withheld from sick pay paid by a third party, such as an insurance company, you must fill out Form W-4S. International student tax return Its instructions contain a worksheet you can use to figure the amount you want withheld. International student tax return They also explain restrictions that may apply. International student tax return   Give the completed form to the payer of your sick pay. International student tax return The payer must withhold according to your directions on the form. International student tax return Estimated tax. International student tax return   If you do not request withholding on Form W-4S, or if you do not have enough tax withheld, you may have to make estimated tax payments. International student tax return If you do not pay enough tax, either through estimated tax or withholding, or a combination of both, you may have to pay a penalty. International student tax return See Underpayment Penalty for 2013 at the end of this chapter. International student tax return Pensions and Annuities Income tax usually will be withheld from your pension or annuity distributions unless you choose not to have it withheld. International student tax return This rule applies to distributions from: A traditional individual retirement arrangement (IRA); A life insurance company under an endowment, annuity, or life insurance contract; A pension, annuity, or profit-sharing plan; A stock bonus plan; and Any other plan that defers the time you receive compensation. International student tax return The amount withheld depends on whether you receive payments spread out over more than 1 year (periodic payments), within 1 year (nonperiodic payments), or as an eligible rollover distribution (ERD). International student tax return Income tax withholding from an ERD is mandatory. International student tax return More information. International student tax return   For more information on taxation of annuities and distributions (including ERDs) from qualified retirement plans, see chapter 10. International student tax return For information on IRAs, see chapter 17. International student tax return For more information on withholding on pensions and annuities, including a discussion of Form W-4P, see Pensions and Annuities in chapter 1 of Publication 505. International student tax return Gambling Winnings Income tax is withheld at a flat 25% rate from certain kinds of gambling winnings. International student tax return Gambling winnings of more than $5,000 from the following sources are subject to income tax withholding. International student tax return Any sweepstakes; wagering pool, including payments made to winners of poker tournaments; or lottery. International student tax return Any other wager, if the proceeds are at least 300 times the amount of the bet. International student tax return It does not matter whether your winnings are paid in cash, in property, or as an annuity. International student tax return Winnings not paid in cash are taken into account at their fair market value. International student tax return Exception. International student tax return   Gambling winnings from bingo, keno, and slot machines generally are not subject to income tax withholding. International student tax return However, you may need to provide the payer with a social security number to avoid withholding. International student tax return See Backup withholding on gambling winnings in chapter 1 of Publication 505. International student tax return If you receive gambling winnings not subject to withholding, you may need to pay estimated tax. International student tax return See Estimated Tax for 2014 , later. International student tax return If you do not pay enough tax, either through withholding or estimated tax, or a combination of both, you may have to pay a penalty. International student tax return See Underpayment Penalty for 2013 at the end of this chapter. International student tax return Form W-2G. International student tax return   If a payer withholds income tax from your gambling winnings, you should receive a Form W-2G, Certain Gambling Winnings, showing the amount you won and the amount withheld. International student tax return Report the tax withheld on line 62 of Form 1040. International student tax return Unemployment Compensation You can choose to have income tax withheld from unemployment compensation. International student tax return To make this choice, fill out Form W-4V (or a similar form provided by the payer) and give it to the payer. International student tax return All unemployment compensation is taxable. International student tax return So, if you do not have income tax withheld, you may have to pay estimated tax. International student tax return See Estimated Tax for 2014 , later. International student tax return If you do not pay enough tax, either through withholding or estimated tax, or a combination of both, you may have to pay a penalty. International student tax return For information, see Underpayment Penalty for 2013 at the end of this chapter.

International student tax return These payments are: Social security benefits, Tier 1 railroad retirement benefits, Commodity credit corporation loans you choose to include in your gross income, Payments under the Agricultural Act of 1949 (7 U. International student tax return S. International student tax return C. International student tax return 1421 et. International student tax return seq.

International student tax return Backup Withholding Banks or other businesses that pay you certain kinds of income must file an information return (Form 1099) with the IRS. International student tax return The information return shows how much you were paid during the year. International student tax return It also includes your name and taxpayer identification number (TIN). International student tax return TINs are explained in chapter 1 under Social Security Number (SSN) . International student tax return These payments generally are not subject to withholding. International student tax return However, “backup” withholding is required in certain situations. International student tax return Backup withholding can apply to most kinds of payments that are reported on Form 1099. International student tax return The payer must withhold at a flat 28% rate in the following situations. International student tax return You do not give the payer your TIN in the required manner. International student tax return The IRS notifies the payer that the TIN you gave is incorrect. International student tax return You are required, but fail, to certify that you are not subject to backup withholding. International student tax return The IRS notifies the payer to start withholding on interest or dividends because you have underreported interest or dividends on your income tax return. International student tax return The IRS will do this only after it has mailed you four notices over at least a 210-day period. International student tax return See Backup Withholding in chapter 1 of Publication 505 for more information. International student tax return Penalties. International student tax return   There are civil and criminal penalties for giving false information to avoid backup withholding. International student tax return The civil penalty is $500. International student tax return The criminal penalty, upon conviction, is a fine of up to $1,000 or imprisonment of up to 1 year, or both.

International student tax return This includes income from self-employment, interest, dividends, alimony, rent, gains from the sale of assets, prizes, and awards. International student tax return You also may have to pay estimated tax if the amount of income tax being withheld from your salary, pension, or other income is not enough. International student tax return Estimated tax is used to pay both income tax and self-employment tax, as well as other taxes and amounts reported on your tax return. International student tax return If you do not pay enough tax, either through withholding or estimated tax, or a combination of both, you may have to pay a penalty. International student tax return If you do not pay enough by the due date of each payment period (see When To Pay Estimated Tax , later), you may be charged a penalty even if you are due a refund when you file your tax return. International student tax return For information on when the penalty applies, see Underpayment Penalty for 2013 at the end of this chapter. International student tax return Who Does Not Have To Pay Estimated Tax If you receive salaries or wages, you can avoid having to pay estimated tax by asking your employer to take more tax out of your earnings. International student tax return To do this, give a new Form W-4 to your employer. International student tax return See chapter 1 of Publication 505. International student tax return Estimated tax not required. International student tax return   You do not have to pay estimated tax for 2014 if you meet all three of the following conditions.

International student tax return citizen or resident alien for the whole year. International student tax return Your 2013 tax year covered a 12-month period.

International student tax return Who Must Pay Estimated Tax If you owe additional tax for 2013, you may have to pay estimated tax for 2014. International student tax return You can use the following general rule as a guide during the year to see if you will have enough withholding, or if you should increase your withholding or make estimated tax payments. International student tax return General rule. International student tax return   In most cases, you must pay estimated tax for 2014 if both of the following apply. International student tax return You expect to owe at least $1,000 in tax for 2014, after subtracting your withholding and refundable credits. International student tax return You expect your withholding plus your refundable credits to be less than the smaller of: 90% of the tax to be shown on your 2014 tax return, or 100% of the tax shown on your 2013 tax return (but see Special rules for farmers, fishermen, and higher income taxpayers, later). International student tax return Your 2013 tax return must cover all 12 months. International student tax return    If the result from using the general rule above suggests that you will not have enough withholding, complete the 2014 Estimated Tax Worksheet in Publication 505 for a more accurate calculation. International student tax return Special rules for farmers, fishermen, and higher income taxpayers. International student tax return   If at least two-thirds of your gross income for tax year 2013 or 2014 is from farming or fishing, substitute 662/3% for 90% in (2a) under the General rule, earlier. International student tax return If your AGI for 2013 was more than $150,000 ($75,000 if your filing status for 2014 is married filing a separate return), substitute 110% for 100% in (2b) under General rule , earlier.

International student tax return   You are an alien if you are not a citizen or national of the United States. International student tax return You are a resident alien if you either have a green card or meet the substantial presence test. International student tax return For more information about the substantial presence test, see Publication 519, U. International student tax return S. International student tax return Tax Guide for Aliens. International student tax return Married taxpayers. International student tax return   If you qualify to make joint estimated tax payments, apply the rules discussed here to your joint estimated income. International student tax return   You and your spouse can make joint estimated tax payments even if you are not living together. International student tax return   However, you and your spouse cannot make joint estimated tax payments if:  You are legally separated under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance, You and your spouse have different tax years, or Either spouse is a nonresident alien (unless that spouse elected to be treated as a resident alien for tax purposes (see chapter 1 of Publication 519)). International student tax return   If you do not qualify to make joint estimated tax payments, apply these rules to your separate estimated income. International student tax return Making joint or separate estimated tax payments will not affect your choice of filing a joint tax return or separate returns for 2014. International student tax return 2013 separate returns and 2014 joint return. International student tax return   If you plan to file a joint return with your spouse for 2014, but you filed separate returns for 2013, your 2013 tax is the total of the tax shown on your separate returns. International student tax return You filed a separate return if you filed as single, head of household, or married filing separately. International student tax return 2013 joint return and 2014 separate returns. International student tax return   If you plan to file a separate return for 2014 but you filed a joint return for 2013, your 2013 tax is your share of the tax on the joint return. International student tax return You file a separate return if you file as single, head of household, or married filing separately. International student tax return   To figure your share of the tax on the joint return, first figure the tax both you and your spouse would have paid had you filed separate returns for 2013 using the same filing status as for 2014. International student tax return Then multiply the tax on the joint return by the following fraction. International student tax return     The tax you would have paid had you filed a separate return   The total tax you and your spouse would have paid had you filed separate returns Example. International student tax return Joe and Heather filed a joint return for 2013 showing taxable income of $48,500 and a tax of $6,386. International student tax return Of the $48,500 taxable income, $40,100 was Joe's and the rest was Heather's. International student tax return For 2014, they plan to file married filing separately. International student tax return Joe figures his share of the tax on the 2013 joint return as follows. International student tax return   Tax on $40,100 based on a separate return $5,960     Tax on $8,400 based on a separate return 843     Total $6,803     Joe's percentage of total ($5,960 ÷ $6,803) 87. International student tax return 6%     Joe's share of tax on joint return  ($6,386 × 87. International student tax return 6%) $5,594   How To Figure Estimated Tax To figure your estimated tax, you must figure your expected adjusted gross income (AGI), taxable income, taxes, deductions, and credits for the year.

International student tax return Use your 2013 federal tax return as a guide. International student tax return You can use Form 1040-ES and Publication 505 to figure your estimated tax. International student tax return Nonresident aliens use Form 1040-ES (NR) and Publication 505 to figure estimated tax (see chapter 8 of Publication 519 for more information). International student tax return You must make adjustments both for changes in your own situation and for recent changes in the tax law. International student tax return For a discussion of these changes, visit IRS. International student tax return gov.
