when you figure your estimated tax, consider tax law changes effective in 2014. 1040x file online For more information, see Publication 505. 1040x file online Reminders Estimated tax safe harbor for higher income taxpayers. 1040x file online  If your 2013 adjusted gross income was more than $150,000 ($75,000 if you are married filing a separate return), you must pay the smaller of 90% of your expected tax for 2014 or 110% of the tax shown on your 2013 return to avoid an estimated tax penalty. 1040x file online Introduction This chapter discusses how to pay your tax as you earn or receive income during the year. 1040x file online In general, the federal income tax is a pay-as-you-go tax. 1040x file online There are two ways to pay as you go. 1040x file online Withholding. 1040x file online If you are an employee, your employer probably withholds income tax from your pay. 1040x file online Tax also may be withheld from certain other income, such as pensions, bonuses, commissions, and gambling winnings. 1040x file online The amount withheld is paid to the IRS in your name. 1040x file online Estimated tax. 1040x file online If you do not pay your tax through withholding, or do not pay enough tax that way, you may have to pay estimated tax. 1040x file online People who are in business for themselves generally will have to pay their tax this way. 1040x file online Also, you may have to pay estimated tax if you receive income such as dividends, interest, capital gains, rent, and royalties. 1040x file online Estimated tax is used to pay not only income tax, but self-employment tax and alternative minimum tax as well. 1040x file online This chapter explains these methods. 1040x file online In addition, it also explains the following. 1040x file online Credit for withholding and estimated tax. 1040x file online When you file your 2013 income tax return, take credit for all the income tax withheld from your salary, wages, pensions, etc. 1040x file online , and for the estimated tax you paid for 2013. 1040x file online Also take credit for any excess social security or railroad retirement tax withheld (discussed in chapter 37). 1040x file online Underpayment penalty. 1040x file online If you did not pay enough tax during the year, either through withholding or by making estimated tax payments, you may have to pay a penalty. 1040x file online In most cases, the IRS can figure this penalty for you. 1040x file online See Underpayment Penalty for 2013 at the end of this chapter. 1040x file online Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 505 Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax Form (and Instructions) W-4 Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate W-4P Withholding Certificate for Pension or Annuity Payments W-4S Request for

Underpayment of Estimated Tax by Farmers and Fishermen Tax Withholding for 2014 This section discusses income tax withholding on: Salaries and wages, Tips, Taxable fringe benefits, Sick pay, Pensions and annuities, Gambling winnings, Unemployment compensation, and Certain federal payments. 1040x file online This section explains the rules for withholding tax from each of these types of income. 1040x file online This section also covers backup withholding on interest, dividends, and other payments. 1040x file online Salaries and Wages Income tax is withheld from the pay of most employees. 1040x file online Your pay includes your regular pay, bonuses, commissions, and vacation allowances. 1040x file online It also includes reimbursements and other expense allowances paid under a nonaccountable plan. 1040x file online See Supplemental Wages , later, for more information about reimbursements and allowances paid under a nonaccountable plan. 1040x file online If your income is low enough that you will not have to pay income tax for the year, you may be exempt from withholding. 1040x file online This is explained under Exemption From Withholding , later. 1040x file online You can ask your employer to withhold income tax from noncash wages and other wages not subject to withholding. 1040x file online If your employer does not agree to withhold tax, or if not enough is withheld, you may have to pay estimated tax, as discussed later under Estimated Tax for 2014 . 1040x file online Military retirees. 1040x file online   Military retirement pay is treated in the same manner as regular pay for income tax withholding purposes, even though it is treated as a pension or annuity for other tax purposes. 1040x file online Household workers. 1040x file online   If you are a household worker, you can ask your employer to withhold income tax from your pay. 1040x file online A household worker is an employee who performs household work in a private home, local college club, or local fraternity or sorority chapter. 1040x file online   Tax is withheld only if you want it withheld and your employer agrees to withhold it. 1040x file online If you do not have enough income tax withheld, you may have to pay estimated tax, as discussed later under Estimated Tax for 2014 . 1040x file online Farmworkers. 1040x file online   Generally, income tax is withheld from your cash wages for work on a farm unless your employer does both of these: Pays you cash wages of less than $150 during the year, and Has expenditures for agricultural labor totaling less than $2,500 during the year. 1040x file online Differential wage payments. 1040x file online    When employees are on leave from employment for military duty, some employers make up the difference between the military pay and civilian pay. 1040x file online Payments to an employee who is on active duty for a period of more than 30 days will be subject to income tax withholding, but not subject to social security or Medicare taxes. 1040x file online The wages and withholding will be reported on Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. 1040x file online   The credit employers can claim for differential wages paid to activated military reservists is scheduled to expire for wages paid after December 31, 2013. 1040x file online Determining Amount of Tax Withheld Using Form W-4 The amount of income tax your employer withholds from your regular pay depends on two things. 1040x file online The amount you earn in each payroll period. 1040x file online The information you give your employer on Form W-4. 1040x file online Form W-4 includes four types of information that your employer will use to figure your withholding. 1040x file online Whether to withhold at the single rate or at the lower married rate. 1040x file online How many withholding allowances you claim (each allowance reduces the amount withheld). 1040x file online Whether you want an additional amount withheld. 1040x file online Whether you are claiming an exemption from withholding in 2014. 1040x file online See Exemption From Withholding , later. 1040x file online Note. 1040x file online You must specify a filing status and a number of withholding allowances on Form W-4. 1040x file online You cannot specify only a dollar amount of withholding. 1040x file online New Job When you start a new job, you must fill out Form W-4 and give it to your employer. 1040x file online Your employer should have copies of the form. 1040x file online If you need to change the information later, you must fill out a new form. 1040x file online If you work only part of the year (for example, you start working after the beginning of the year), too much tax may be withheld. 1040x file online You may be able to avoid overwithholding if your employer agrees to use the part-year method. 1040x file online See Part-Year Method in chapter 1 of Publication 505 for more information. 1040x file online Employee also receiving pension income. 1040x file online   If you receive pension or annuity income and begin a new job, you will need to file Form W-4 with your new employer. 1040x file online However, you can choose to split your withholding allowances between your pension and job in any manner. 1040x file online Changing Your Withholding During the year changes may occur to your marital status, exemptions, adjustments, deductions, or credits you expect to claim on your tax return. 1040x file online When this happens, you may need to give your employer a new Form W-4 to change your withholding status or your number of allowances. 1040x file online If the changes reduce the number of allowances you are claiming or changes your marital status from married to single, you must give your employer a new Form W-4 within 10 days. 1040x file online Generally, you can submit a new Form W-4 whenever you wish to change the number of your withholding allowances for any other reason. 1040x file online Changing your withholding for 2015. 1040x file online   If events in 2014 will decrease the number of your withholding allowances for 2015, you must give your employer a new Form W-4 by December 1, 2014. 1040x file online If the event occurs in December 2014, submit a new Form W-4 within 10 days. 1040x file online Checking Your Withholding After you have given your employer a Form W-4, you can check to see whether the amount of tax withheld from your pay is too little or too much. 1040x file online If too much or too little tax is being withheld, you should give your employer a new Form W-4 to change your withholding. 1040x file online You should try to have your withholding match your actual tax liability. 1040x file online If not enough tax is withheld, you will owe tax at the end of the year and may have to pay interest and a penalty. 1040x file online If too much tax is withheld, you will lose the use of that money until you get your refund. 1040x file online Always check your withholding if there are personal or financial changes in your life or changes in the law that might change your tax liability. 1040x file online Note. 1040x file online You cannot give your employer a payment to cover withholding on salaries and wages for past pay periods or a payment for estimated tax. 1040x file online Completing Form W-4 and Worksheets Form W-4 has worksheets to help you figure how many withholding allowances you can claim. 1040x file online The worksheets are for your own records. 1040x file online Do not give them to your employer. 1040x file online Multiple jobs. 1040x file online   If you have income from more than one job at the same time, complete only one set of Form W-4 worksheets. 1040x file online Then split your allowances between the Forms W-4 for each job. 1040x file online You cannot claim the same allowances with more than one employer at the same time. 1040x file online You can claim all your allowances with one employer and none with the other(s), or divide them any other way. 1040x file online Married individuals. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online Use only one set of worksheets. 1040x file online You can divide your total allowances any way, but you cannot claim an allowance that your spouse also claims. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online Alternative method of figuring withholding allowances. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online For more information, see Alternative method of figuring withholding allowances under Completing Form W-4 and Worksheets in Publication 505, chapter 1. 1040x file online Personal Allowances Worksheet. 1040x file online   Use the Personal Allowances Worksheet on Form W-4 to figure your withholding allowances based on exemptions and any special allowances that apply. 1040x file online Deduction and Adjustments Worksheet. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online Also, complete this worksheet when you have changes to these items to see if you need to change your withholding. 1040x file online Two-Earners/Multiple Jobs Worksheet. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online You accurately complete all the Form W-4 worksheets that apply to you. 1040x file online You give your employer a new Form W-4 when changes occur. 1040x file online But because the worksheets and withholding methods do not account for all possible situations, you may not be getting the right amount withheld. 1040x file online This is most likely to happen in the following situations. 1040x file online You are married and both you and your spouse work. 1040x file online You have more than one job at a time. 1040x file online You have nonwage income, such as interest, dividends, alimony, unemployment compensation, or self-employment income. 1040x file online You will owe additional amounts with your return, such as self-employment tax. 1040x file online Your withholding is based on obsolete Form W-4 information for a substantial part of the year. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online You work only part of the year. 1040x file online You change the number of your withholding allowances during the year. 1040x file online Cumulative wage method. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online You must ask your employer in writing to use this method. 1040x file online   To be eligible, you must have been paid for the same kind of payroll period (weekly, biweekly, etc. 1040x file online ) since the beginning of the year. 1040x file online Publication 505 To make sure you are getting the right amount of tax withheld, get Publication 505. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online If you do not have enough tax withheld, you may have to pay estimated tax, as explained under Estimated Tax for 2014 , later. 1040x file online You can use the IRS Withholding Calculator at www. 1040x file online irs. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online Rules Your Employer Must Follow It may be helpful for you to know some of the withholding rules your employer must follow. 1040x file online These rules can affect how to fill out your Form W-4 and how to handle problems that may arise. 1040x file online New Form W-4. 1040x file online   When you start a new job, your employer should have you complete a Form W-4. 1040x file online Beginning with your first payday, your employer will use the information you give on the form to figure your withholding. 1040x file online   If you later fill out a new Form W-4, your employer can put it into effect as soon as possible. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online No Form W-4. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online Repaying withheld tax. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online Your employer cannot repay any of the tax previously withheld. 1040x file online Instead, claim the full amount withheld when you file your tax return. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online Your employer can repay the amount that was withheld incorrectly. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online Exemption From Withholding If you claim exemption from withholding, your employer will not withhold federal income tax from your wages. 1040x file online The exemption applies only to income tax, not to social security or Medicare tax. 1040x file online You can claim exemption from withholding for 2014 only if both of the following situations apply. 1040x file online For 2013 you had a right to a refund of all federal income tax withheld because you had no tax liability. 1040x file online For 2014 you expect a refund of all federal income tax withheld because you expect to have no tax liability. 1040x file online Students. 1040x file online   If you are a student, you are not automatically exempt. 1040x file online See chapter 1 to find out if you must file a return. 1040x file online If you work only part time or only during the summer, you may qualify for exemption from withholding. 1040x file online Age 65 or older or blind. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online Do not use either worksheet if you will itemize deductions, claim exemptions for dependents, or claim tax credits on your 2014 return. 1040x file online Instead, see Itemizing deductions or claiming exemptions or credits in chapter 1 of Publication 505. 1040x file online Claiming exemption from withholding. 1040x file online   To claim exemption, you must give your employer a Form W-4. 1040x file online Do not complete lines 5 and 6. 1040x file online Enter “Exempt” on line 7. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online   Your claim of exempt status may be reviewed by the IRS. 1040x file online An exemption is good for only 1 year. 1040x file online   You must give your employer a new Form W-4 by February 15 each year to continue your exemption. 1040x file online Supplemental Wages Supplemental wages include bonuses, commissions, overtime pay, vacation allowances, certain sick pay, and expense allowances under certain plans. 1040x file online The payer can figure withholding on supplemental wages using the same method used for your regular wages. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online Expense allowances. 1040x file online   Reimbursements or other expense allowances paid by your employer under a nonaccountable plan are treated as supplemental wages. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online   For more information about accountable and nonaccountable expense allowance plans, see Reimbursements in chapter 26. 1040x file online Penalties You may have to pay a penalty of $500 if both of the following apply. 1040x file online You make statements or claim withholding allowances on your Form W-4 that reduce the amount of tax withheld. 1040x file online You have no reasonable basis for those statements or allowances at the time you prepare your Form W-4. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online The penalty upon conviction can be either a fine of up to $1,000 or imprisonment for up to 1 year, or both. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online A simple error or an honest mistake will not result in one of these penalties. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online Tips The tips you receive while working on your job are considered part of your pay. 1040x file online You must include your tips on your tax return on the same line as your regular pay. 1040x file online However, tax is not withheld directly from tip income, as it is from your regular pay. 1040x file online Nevertheless, your employer will take into account the tips you report when figuring how much to withhold from your regular pay. 1040x file online See chapter 6 for information on reporting your tips to your employer. 1040x file online For more information on the withholding rules for tip income, see Publication 531, Reporting Tip Income. 1040x file online How employer figures amount to withhold. 1040x file online   The tips you report to your employer are counted as part of your income for the month you report them. 1040x file online Your employer can figure your withholding in either of two ways. 1040x file online By withholding at the regular rate on the sum of your pay plus your reported tips. 1040x file online By withholding at the regular rate on your pay plus a percentage of your reported tips. 1040x file online Not enough pay to cover taxes. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online See Giving your employer money for taxes in chapter 6. 1040x file online Allocated tips. 1040x file online   Your employer should not withhold income tax, Medicare tax, social security tax, or railroad retirement tax on any allocated tips. 1040x file online Withholding is based only on your pay plus your reported tips. 1040x file online Your employer should refund to you any incorrectly withheld tax. 1040x file online See Allocated Tips in chapter 6 for more information. 1040x file online Taxable Fringe Benefits The value of certain noncash fringe benefits you receive from your employer is considered part of your pay. 1040x file online Your employer generally must withhold income tax on these benefits from your regular pay. 1040x file online For information on fringe benefits, see Fringe Benefits under Employee Compensation in chapter 5. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online Your employer must notify you if this choice is made. 1040x file online For more information on withholding on taxable fringe benefits, see chapter 1 of Publication 505. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online To qualify as sick pay, it must be paid under a plan to which your employer is a party. 1040x file online If you receive sick pay from your employer or an agent of your employer, income tax must be withheld. 1040x file online An agent who does not pay regular wages to you may choose to withhold income tax at a flat rate. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online See Form W-4S , later. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online Union agreements. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online See your union representative or your employer for more information. 1040x file online Form W-4S. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online Its instructions contain a worksheet you can use to figure the amount you want withheld. 1040x file online They also explain restrictions that may apply. 1040x file online   Give the completed form to the payer of your sick pay. 1040x file online The payer must withhold according to your directions on the form. 1040x file online Estimated tax. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online See Underpayment Penalty for 2013 at the end of this chapter. 1040x file online Pensions and Annuities Income tax usually will be withheld from your pension or annuity distributions unless you choose not to have it withheld. 1040x file online This rule applies to distributions from: A

not affect your choice of filing a joint tax return or separate returns for 2014. 1040x file online 2013 separate returns and 2014 joint return. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online You filed a separate return if you filed as single, head of household, or married filing separately. 1040x file online 2013 joint return and 2014 separate returns. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online You file a separate return if you file as single, head of household, or married filing separately. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online Then multiply the tax on the joint return by the following fraction. 1040x file online     The tax you would have paid had you filed a separate return

of $6,386. 1040x file online Of the $48,500 taxable income, $40,100 was Joe's and the rest was Heather's. 1040x file online For 2014, they plan to file married filing separately. 1040x file online Joe figures his share of the tax on the 2013 joint return as follows. 1040x file online   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. 1040x file online 6%     Joe's share of tax on joint return  ($6,386 × 87. 1040x file online 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. 1040x file online When figuring your 2014 estimated tax, it may be helpful to use your income, deductions, and credits for 2013 as a starting point. 1040x file online Use your 2013 federal tax return as a guide. 1040x file online You can use Form 1040-ES and

your paper return. 1040x file online See chapter 4 of Publication 505. 1040x file online Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications
