The Irs Forms

Irs forms Publication 531 - Main Content Table of Contents Keeping a Daily Tip RecordElectronic tip record. Irs forms Reporting Tips to Your EmployerElectronic tip statement. Irs forms Final report. Irs forms Tip Rate Determination and Education Program Reporting Tips on Your Tax Return Allocated Tips How To Get Tax Help Keeping a Daily Tip Record Why keep a daily tip record. Irs forms   You must keep a daily tip record so you can: Report your tips accurately to your employer, Report your tips accurately on your tax return, and Prove your tip income if your return is ever questioned. Irs forms How to keep a daily tip record. Irs forms   There are two ways to keep a daily tip record. Irs forms 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. Irs forms You should keep your daily tip record with your tax or other personal records. Irs forms You must keep your records for as long as they are important for administration of the federal tax law. Irs forms For information on how long to keep records, see How Long to Keep Records in chapter 1 of Publication 17, Your Federal Income Tax. Irs forms    If you keep a tip diary, you can use Form 4070A, Employee's Daily Record of Tips. Irs forms To get Form 4070A, ask the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or your employer for Publication 1244, Employee's Daily Record of Tips and Report to Employer. Irs forms Publication 1244 is also available at www. Irs forms irs. Irs forms gov/pub1244. Irs forms Publication 1244 includes a 1-year supply of Form 4070A. Irs forms Each day, write in the information asked for on the form. Irs forms A filled-in Form 4070A is shown on the following page. Irs forms   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. Irs forms Although you do not report these tips to your employer, you must report them on your tax return. Irs forms   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). Irs forms Then, each workday, write the date and the following information. Irs forms Cash tips you get directly from customers or from other employees. Irs forms Tips from credit and debit card charge customers that your employer pays you. Irs forms The value of any noncash tips you get, such as tickets, passes, or other items of value. Irs forms The amount of tips you paid out to other employees through tip pools or tip splitting, or other arrangements, and the names of the employees to whom you paid the tips. Irs forms Please click here for the text description of the image. Irs forms Sample Filled-in Form 4070A from Publication 1244 Electronic tip record. Irs forms   You can use an electronic system provided by your employer to record your daily tips. Irs forms If you do, you must receive and keep a paper copy of this record. Irs forms Service charges. Irs forms    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. Irs forms This is part of your wages, not a tip. Irs forms The following factors determine if you have a tip or service charge: The payment is made free from compulsion; The customer has the right to determine the amount of payment; The payment is not subject to negotiation or dictated by employer policy; and The customer generally has the right to determine who receives the payment. Irs forms See examples below. Irs forms Example 1. Irs forms Good Food Restaurant adds an 18% charge to the bill for parties of 6 or more customers. Irs forms 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. Irs forms Because Jane did not have an unrestricted right to determine the amount on the “tip line,” the 18% charge is considered a service charge. Irs forms Do not include the 18% charge in your tip diary. Irs forms Service charges that are paid to you are considered wages, not tips. Irs forms Example 2. Irs forms Good Food Restaurant includes sample calculations of tip amounts at the bottom of its bills for food and beverages provided to customers. Irs forms David's bill includes a blank “tip line,” with sample tip calculations of 15%, 18%, and 20% of the charges for food and beverages at the bottom of the bill beneath the signature line. Irs forms Because David is free to enter any amount on the “tip line” or leave it blank, any amount he includes is considered a tip. Irs forms Be sure to include this amount in your tip diary. Irs forms Sample Filled-in Form 4070 from Publication 1244 Please click here for the text description of the image. Irs forms Filled-in Form 4070 Reporting Tips to Your Employer Why report tips to your employer. Irs forms   You must report tips to your employer so that: Your employer can withhold federal income tax and social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes, Your employer can report the correct amount of your earnings to the Social Security Administration or Railroad Retirement Board (which affects your benefits when you retire or if you become disabled, or your family's benefits if you die), and You can avoid the penalty for not reporting tips to your employer (explained later). Irs forms What tips to report. Irs forms   Report to your employer only cash, check, and debit and credit card tips you receive. Irs forms   If your total tips for any 1 month from any one job are less than $20, do not report the tips for that month to that employer. Irs forms   If you participate in a tip-splitting or tip-pooling arrangement, report only the tips you receive and retain. Irs forms Do not report to your employer any portion of the tips you receive that you pass on to other employees. Irs forms However, you must report tips you receive from other employees. Irs forms   Do not report the value of any noncash tips, such as tickets or passes, to your employer. Irs forms You do not pay social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes on these tips. Irs forms How to report. Irs forms   If your employer does not give you any other way to report your tips, you can use Form 4070, Employee's Report of Tips to Employer. Irs forms Fill in the information asked for on the form, sign and date the form, and give it to your employer. Irs forms A sample filled-in Form 4070 is shown above. Irs forms To get a 1-year supply of the form, ask the IRS or your employer for Publication 1244. Irs forms   If you do not use Form 4070, give your employer a statement with the following information. Irs forms Your name, address, and social security number. Irs forms Your employer's name, address, and business name (if it is different from your employer's name). Irs forms The month (or the dates of any shorter period) in which you received tips. Irs forms The total tips required to be reported for that period. Irs forms You must sign and date the statement. Irs forms Be sure to keep a copy with your tax or other personal records. Irs forms   Your employer may require you to report your tips more than once a month. Irs forms However, the statement cannot cover a period of more than 1 calendar month. Irs forms Electronic tip statement. Irs forms   Your employer can have you furnish your tip statements electronically. Irs forms When to report. Irs forms   Give your report for each month to your employer by the 10th of the next month. Irs forms If the 10th falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, give your employer the report by the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday. Irs forms Example. Irs forms You must report your tips received in September 2014 by October 10, 2014. Irs forms Final report. Irs forms   If your employment ends during the month, you can report your tips when your employment ends. Irs forms Penalty for not reporting tips. Irs forms   If you do not report tips to your employer as required, you may be subject to a penalty equal to 50% of the social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes you owe on the unreported tips. Irs forms (For information about these taxes, see Reporting social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes on tips not reported to your employer under Reporting Tips on Your Tax Return, later. Irs forms ) The penalty amount is in addition to the taxes you owe. Irs forms   You can avoid this penalty if you can show reasonable cause for not reporting the tips to your employer. Irs forms To do so, attach a statement to your return explaining why you did not report them. Irs forms Giving your employer money for taxes. Irs forms   Your regular pay may not be enough for your employer to withhold all the taxes you owe on your regular pay plus your reported tips. Irs forms If this happens, you can give your employer money until the close of the calendar year to pay the rest of the taxes. Irs forms   If you do not give your employer enough money, your employer will apply your regular pay and any money you give to the taxes, in the following order. Irs forms All taxes on your regular pay. Irs forms Social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes on your reported tips. Irs forms Federal, state, and local income taxes on your reported tips. Irs forms    Any taxes that remain unpaid can be collected by your employer from your next paycheck. Irs forms If withholding taxes remain uncollected at the end of the year, you may be subject to a penalty for underpayment of estimated taxes. Irs forms See Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax, for more information. Irs forms    Uncollected taxes. Irs forms You must report on your tax return any social security and Medicare taxes, or railroad retirement taxes that remained uncollected at the end of 2013. Irs forms These uncollected taxes will be shown on your 2013 Form W-2. Irs forms See Reporting uncollected social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes on tips reported to your employer under Reporting Tips on Your Tax Return, later. Irs forms Tip Rate Determination and Education Program Your employer may participate in the Tip Rate Determination and Education Program. Irs forms The program was developed to help employees and employers understand and meet their tip reporting responsibilities. Irs forms There are two agreements under the program: the Tip Rate Determination Agreement (TRDA) and the Tip Reporting Alternative Commitment (TRAC). Irs forms A variation of the TRAC program, the Employer Tip Reporting Alternative Commitment, (EmTRAC) was designed to allow employers in the food and beverage industry to design and receive approval for their own TRAC programs. Irs forms For information on the EmTRAC program, see Notice 2001-1, which is on page 261 of Internal Revenue Bulletin 2001-2 at www. Irs forms irs. Irs forms gov/pub/irs-irbs/irb01-02. Irs forms pdf.

Irs forms   However, any tips you received in 2013 that you reported to your employer as required after 2013 but before January 11, 2014, are not included in the wages shown in box 1 of your 2013 Form W-2. Irs forms Do not include the amount of these tips on your 2013 tax return. Irs forms Instead, include them on your 2014 tax return. Irs forms Tips you received in 2012 that you reported to your employer as required after 2012 but before January 11, 2013, are included in the wages shown in box 1 of your 2013 Form W-2. Irs forms Although these tips were received in 2012, you must report them on your 2013 tax return. Irs forms   If you participate in a tip-splitting or tip-pooling arrangement, report only the tips you receive and retain. Irs forms Do not report on your income tax return any portion of the tips you receive that you pass on to other employees. Irs forms However, you must report tips you receive from other employees.

Irs forms    If you did not keep a daily tip record as required and an amount is shown in box 8 of your Form W-2, see Allocated Tips, later.

Irs forms Reporting social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes on tips not reported to your employer. Irs forms    If you received $20 or more in cash and charge tips in a month from any one job and did not report all of those tips to your employer, you must report the social security, Medicare, and Additional Medicare taxes on the unreported tips as additional tax on your return. Irs forms To report these taxes, you must file a return even if you would not otherwise have to file. Irs forms You must use Form 1040, Form 1040NR, Form 1040NR-EZ, Form 1040-SS, or 1040-PR (as appropriate) for this purpose. Irs forms (You cannot file Form 1040EZ or Form 1040A. Irs forms )    Use Form 4137, Social Security and Medicare Tax on Unreported Tip Income, to figure social security and Medicare taxes. Irs forms Enter the tax on your return as instructed, and attach the completed Form 4137 to your return. Irs forms Use Form 8959 to figure Additional Medicare Tax. Irs forms If you are subject to the Railroad Retirement Tax Act, you cannot use Form 4137 to pay railroad retirement tax on unreported tips. Irs forms To get railroad retirement credit, you must report tips to your employer. Irs forms Reporting uncollected social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes on tips reported to your employer.

Irs forms For more information, see Giving your employer money for taxes , under Reporting Tips to Your Employer, earlier. Irs forms   If your employer could not collect all the social security and Medicare taxes, or railroad retirement taxes you owe on tips reported for 2013, the uncollected taxes will be shown in box 12 of your Form W-2 (codes A and B).

Irs forms   To report these uncollected taxes, you must file a return even if you would not otherwise have to file. Irs forms You can report these taxes on Form 1040, in the space next to line 60; Form 1040NR, line 59; Form 1040-SS, Part I, line 6; or Form 1040-PR, Part I, line 6.

Irs forms ) Self-employed persons. Irs forms    If you receive tips as a self-employed person, you should report these tips as income on Schedule C or C-EZ. Irs forms See Publication 334, Tax Guide for Small Business, for more information on reporting business income. Irs forms Allocated Tips If your employer allocated tips to you, they are shown separately in box 8 of your Form W-2. Irs forms They are not included in box 1 with your wages and reported tips. Irs forms If box 8 is blank, this discussion does not apply to you. Irs forms What are allocated tips. Irs forms   These are tips that your employer assigned to you in addition to the tips you reported to your employer for the year. Irs forms Your employer will have done this only if: You worked in an establishment (restaurant, cocktail lounge, or similar business) that must allocate tips to employees, and The tips you reported to your employer were less than your share of 8% of food and drink sales. Irs forms No income, social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes are withheld on allocated tips. Irs forms How were your allocated tips figured. Irs forms   The tips allocated to you are your share of an amount figured by subtracting the reported tips of all employees from 8% (or an approved lower rate) of food and drink sales (other than carryout sales and sales with a service charge of 10% or more). Irs forms Your share of that amount was figured using either a method provided by an employer-employee agreement or a method provided by IRS regulations based on employees' sales or hours worked. Irs forms For information about the exact allocation method used, ask your employer. Irs forms Must you report your allocated tips on your tax return. Irs forms   You must report tips you received in 2013 (including both cash and noncash tips) on your tax return as explained in What tips to report , earlier. Irs forms Any tips you reported to your employer in 2013 as required (explained under Reporting Tips to Your Employer , earlier) are included in the wages shown in box 1 of your Form W-2. Irs forms Add to the amount in box 1 only the tips you did not report to your employer as required. Irs forms This should include any allocated tips shown in box 8 on your Form(s) W-2, unless you have adequate records to show that you received less tips in the year than the allocated amount. Irs forms   See What tips to report under Reporting Tips on Your Tax Return, and Keeping a Daily Tip Record , earlier. Irs forms How to report allocated tips. Irs forms   If you received any tips in 2013 that you did not report to your employer as required (including allocated tips that you are required to report on your tax return), add these tips to the amount in box 1 of your Form(s) W-2 and report this amount as wages on Form 1040, line 7; Form 1040NR, line 8; or Form 1040NR-EZ, line 3. Irs forms (You cannot file Form 1040A or Form 1040EZ). Irs forms    Because social security, Medicare, or Additional Medicare taxes were not withheld from the allocated tips, you must report those taxes as additional tax on your return. Irs forms Complete Form 4137 and include the allocated tips on line 1 of the form as provided in its instructions. Irs forms See Reporting social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes on tips not reported to your employer under Reporting Tips on Your Tax Return, earlier. Irs forms How to request an approved lower rate. Irs forms   Your employer can use a tip rate lower than 8% (but not lower than 2%) to figure allocated tips only if the IRS approves the lower rate. Irs forms Either the employer or the employees can request approval of a lower rate by filing a petition with the IRS. Irs forms The petition must include specific information about the establishment that will justify the lower rate. Irs forms A user fee must be paid with the petition. Irs forms    An employee petition can be filed only with the consent of a majority of the directly tipped employees (waiters, bartenders, and others who receive tips directly from customers). Irs forms The petition must state the total number of directly tipped employees and the number of employees consenting to the petition. Irs forms Employees filing the petition must promptly notify the employer, and the employer must promptly give the IRS a copy of all Forms 8027, Employer's Annual Information Return of Tip Income and Allocated Tips, filed for the establishment for the previous 3 years. Irs forms   For more information about how to file a petition and what information to include, see Allocation of Tips in the Instructions for Form 8027.
