File back taxes for free 1. File back taxes for free What is Back Pay? Back pay is pay received in a tax year(s) for actual or deemed employment in an earlier tax year(s). File back taxes for free For social security coverage and benefit purposes, all back pay, whether or not under a statute, is wages if it is payment for covered employment. File back taxes for free Damages for personal injury, interest, penalties, and legal fees included with back pay awards are not wages. File back taxes for free Report all back pay. File back taxes for free However, the tax year(s) for which back pay is credited as wages for social security purposes is different if it is awarded under a statute. File back taxes for free See Back Pay Under a Statute , later, for more information. File back taxes for free Reporting Back Pay The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the SSA consider back pay awards to be wages. File back taxes for free However, for income tax purposes, the IRS treats all back pay as wages in the year paid. File back taxes for free Employers should use Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, or electronic wage reports to report back pay as wages in the year they actually pay the employee. File back taxes for free The SSA no longer accepts reports on tapes, cartridges, and diskettes. File back taxes for free Example. File back taxes for free In 2012, Terry Morris earned wages of $50,000. File back taxes for free In the same year, she received $100,000 in settlement of a back pay case against her employer that covered the periods January 2007 through December 2011. File back taxes for free Her employer properly reflected social security wages of $110,100 and Medicare wages of $150,000 on her 2012 Form W-2. File back taxes for free However, if an employer did not include back pay wages on a previously filed Form W-2, magnetic media, or electronically filed wage report, the employer should prepare a wage correction report, Form W-2c, Corrected Wage and Tax Statement, or electronically filed report, to add the back pay award to the wages previously reported. File back taxes for free Example. File back taxes for free If, in the above example, Terry Morris' employer had prepared her 2012 Form W-2 reporting social security and Medicare wages of only $50,000 each, the employer would have to correct that report. File back taxes for free A Form W-2c correcting the 2012 Form W-2 would show previously reported social security and Medicare wages of $50,000 and the correct amount of $110,100 for social security wages and $150,000 for Medicare wages. File back taxes for free SSA treatment of back pay under a statute. File back taxes for free   Under the law, the SSA credits back pay awarded under a statute to an individual's earnings record in the period(s) the wages should have been paid. File back taxes for free This is important because wages not credited to the proper year may result in lower social security benefits or failure to meet the requirements for benefits. File back taxes for free   However, back pay under statute payments will remain posted to the employee's social security earnings record in the year reported on Form W-2 (or Form W-2c) unless the employer or employee notifies the SSA (in a separate, special report) of the back pay under a statute payment. File back taxes for free Then, the SSA can allocate the statutory back pay to the appropriate periods. File back taxes for free   If a back pay award is not made under a statute, the SSA credits back pay as wages in the year paid. File back taxes for free    If employers do notify the SSA of this payment, they should prepare a special report (with the information noted below) and send it to: Social Security Administration Attn: CPS Back Pay Staff 7-B-15 SWT 1500 Woodlawn Drive Baltimore, MD 21241-0001 Be sure to send this special report to the above address because the SSA handles it separately from other reports. File back taxes for free    If you paid the back pay award in the same tax year to which it applies, report the wages on that year's Form W-2. File back taxes for free No further action is necessary. File back taxes for free Example. File back taxes for free In 2012, Judy Wilson received a salary of $30,000 and a back pay under statute award of $2,000 for the period January through June 2012. File back taxes for free Her employer properly reported wages of $32,000 for social security and Medicare on her 2012 Form W-2. File back taxes for free No further action is necessary. File back taxes for free Information the SSA needs to properly credit back pay under a statute (special report). File back taxes for free   After you complete the special report, you or the employee should send it to the SSA when or after you submit the Form W-2 (on paper or electronically) to the SSA for the year you pay the statutory back pay to the employee. File back taxes for free There is no statute of limitations on the filing of the special report to enable the SSA to allocate the wages. File back taxes for free The special report must include the following information. File back taxes for free The employer's name, address, and employer identification number (EIN). File back taxes for free A signed statement citing the federal or state statute under which the payment was made. File back taxes for free If the statute is not identified, the SSA will assume the payment was not under a statute and will not allocate to earlier period(s). File back taxes for free The name and telephone number of a person to contact. File back taxes for free The SSA may have additional questions concerning the back pay case or the individual employee's information. File back taxes for free A list of employees receiving the payment and the following information for each employee: The tax year you paid and reported the back pay. File back taxes for free The employee's social security number (SSN). File back taxes for free The employee's name (as shown on his or her social security card). File back taxes for free The amount of the back pay award excluding any amounts specifically designated otherwise, for example, damages for personal injury, interest, penalties, and legal fees. File back taxes for free The period(s) the back pay award covers (beginning and ending dates—month and year). File back taxes for free The other wages paid subject to social security and/or Medicare taxes and reported in the same year as the back pay award (if none, show zero)*. File back taxes for free Do not include the back pay award shown in that wage report. File back taxes for free If you originally submitted the report under an establishment number, show that number and the amount of money that is to remain under that establishment number. File back taxes for free The amount to allocate to each reporting period*. File back taxes for free This includes any amount you want allocated (if applicable) to the tax year of the award payment. File back taxes for free If you do not give the SSA specific amounts to allocate, the SSA does the allocation by dividing the back pay award by the number of months or years covered by the award. File back taxes for free *Note. File back taxes for free   For periods before January 1, 1978 (before January 1, 1981, for state and local government employers covered by a Section 218 agreement), show the wage amounts for each calendar quarter ending March 31, June 30, September 30, and December 31. File back taxes for free For all tax years, show and identify the social security and/or Medicare Qualified Government Employment (MQGE) wages (where applicable) separately. File back taxes for free MQGE is applicable to federal employees beginning in 1983, and for certain state and local government employees beginning in 1986. File back taxes for free For tax years 1991 and later, list the social security and Medicare wages separately. File back taxes for free If you originally reported the individual's wages under an establishment or payroll record unit number, show the amount of wages to remain in the award year for that number and furnish that number to the SSA along with the EIN. File back taxes for free Back Pay Under a Statute Back pay awarded under a statute is a payment by an employer following an award, determination, or agreement approved or sanctioned by a court or government agency responsible for enforcing a federal or state statute that protects an employee's right to employment or wages. File back taxes for free Examples of pertinent statutes include: Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, Equal Pay Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, National Labor Relations Act, State minimum wage laws, and State statutes that protect rights to employment and wages. File back taxes for free Payments based on laws that have a similar effect to those listed above also may qualify as payments made under a statute. File back taxes for free Back pay awards, under some of the statutes listed above, may be compensation for personal injury and not pay for employment. File back taxes for free Such awards are not wages for social security coverage purposes. File back taxes for free If a court-approved or sanctioned settlement agreement states that the agreement is not an admission of discrimination, liability, or act of wrongdoing, the statement does not change the nature of a back pay award. File back taxes for free The payments made in such a settlement may still be back pay and wages under the rules discussed here. File back taxes for free Nonstatutory Back Pay A payment for back wages negotiated between an employer and employee without an award, determination, or agreement approved or sanctioned by a court or government agency, the payment is not made under a statute. File back taxes for free Delayed wage payments and retroactive pay increases resulting from union negotiation or payments under local ordinances or regulations are back pay and are wages. File back taxes for free However, they are not payments made under a statute. File back taxes for free If you are uncertain whether the back pay award was under a qualified statute, you may need to contact your personnel department or legal counsel or the attorney who filed the suit. File back taxes for free Format for Report to the SSA Use the format shown in Table 1, later, to send the SSA the information needed to properly credit back pay under a statute. File back taxes for free In a cover letter, include: Name and address of the employer, Statute under which you paid the back pay, Name and telephone number of the employer contact, and Signature of the reporting official. File back taxes for free Under certain circumstances, back pay may be a special wage payment and excluded from wages counted under the social security earnings test. File back taxes for free If you pay back pay to an employee age 61 or older, report it to the SSA in accordance with this section. File back taxes for free Read Special Wage Payments, later, for additional reporting instructions. File back taxes for free Questions If you have questions concerning back pay under a statute, call the SSA at 1-800-772-6270. File back taxes for free Exception. File back taxes for free   If you are a state or local government employer who was covered by an agreement under Section 218 of the Social Security Act before January 1, 1987, and you paid a back pay award before January 1, 1987, which you did not report to the SSA, contact your state Social Security Administrator's office.

File back taxes for free Special Wage Payments A special wage payment (SWP) is an amount paid by an employer to an employee (or former employee) for services performed in a prior year. File back taxes for free Employers should report to the SSA special wage payments made to employees and former employees who are recipients of social security retirement benefits. File back taxes for free Special wage payments made to a retired employee receiving social security or to an employee who continues to work while receiving social security benefits may reduce the benefits the individual receives if not reported to the SSA. File back taxes for free Special wage payments may include (but are not limited to): Accumulated sick and vacation pay, Back pay, Bonuses, Deferred compensation, Payments because of retirement, Sales commissions, Severance pay, and Stock options. File back taxes for free Note. File back taxes for free Payments made after retirement that are part of the normal payroll cycle should not be routinely reported as special wage payments. File back taxes for free Earnings Test. File back taxes for free   Benefits paid to a social security beneficiary under full retirement age may be reduced if the beneficiary continues to work. File back taxes for free The SSA uses the information in boxes 1, 3, and 5 of Form W-2 to determine the beneficiary's current year earnings. File back taxes for free Special wage payments, which are for services performed in a prior year, will increase the current year earnings on Form W-2, which also may result in a reduction in the beneficiary's benefits. File back taxes for free If a benefit is reduced because of a special wage payment, the beneficiary must get documentation from the employer before the SSA can restore the deducted portion. File back taxes for free Therefore, employer reports of special wage payments help prevent incorrect benefit reductions. File back taxes for free Reporting Special Wage Payments Employers must report special wage payments for income tax purposes and social security and Medicare taxes in the year received. File back taxes for free Report income, social security, and/or Medicare taxes for special wage payments on Form W-2. File back taxes for free See Nonqualified Deferred Compensation and Section 457 Plans, later, for reporting nonqualified deferred compensation plan deferrals and payments on Form W-2.

File back taxes for free Nonqualified Deferred Compensation and Section 457 Plans A nonqualified deferred compensation plan is a plan or arrangement established and maintained by an employer for one or more of its employees that provides for the deferral of compensation, but does not meet the requirements for a tax-qualified deferred compensation plan. File back taxes for free For social security and Medicare purposes, deferred compensation plans for employees of state and local governments (section 457 plans) are treated the same as nonqualified plans. File back taxes for free Nonqualified and section 457 plans are reported differently than other special wage payments. File back taxes for free See Reporting Amounts Deferred to Nonqualified and Section 457 Plans below for specific instructions. File back taxes for free Reporting Amounts Deferred to Nonqualified and Section 457 Plans Generally, when the related services are performed, nonqualified deferred compensation is subject to social security and Medicare tax when deferred. File back taxes for free However, if nonqualified and section 457 plans contain provisions that delay the employee's right to receive payments from the plan, a period of substantial risk of forfeiture exists. File back taxes for free The plans' deferrals, or contributions, are not subject to social security and Medicare taxes until the period of substantial risk of forfeiture ends. File back taxes for free No risk of forfeiture. File back taxes for free   If there is no risk of forfeiture, report wage amounts deferred to a nonqualified deferred compensation or section 457 plan in box 3 (up to the wage base maximum) and/or box 5 of Form W-2. File back taxes for free Example. File back taxes for free Company X's nonqualified deferred compensation plan allows the deferral of up to $20,000 of employee salaries each year.

File back taxes for free Form W-2 Completion Amount Box 1 $200,000 Box 3* 110,100 Box 5 200,000 *Wage base maximum for tax year 2012 Risk of forfeiture lapses before retirement. File back taxes for free   If the substantial risk of forfeiture lapses before the employee retires, report all past contributions to the plan (or the value of the plan), including accumulated earned interest, in box 3 (up to the wage base maximum) and/or box 5 of Form W-2. File back taxes for free The accumulated deferrals are reported along with any other social security and Medicare wages earned during the year. File back taxes for free   Report in box 11 of Form W-2 the amount of deferrals, including any accumulated interest, that became taxable for social security and Medicare taxes during the year (but were for prior year services) because the deferred amounts were no longer subject to a substantial risk of forfeiture. File back taxes for free If the employee continues working, future deferrals are social security and Medicare wages when they are earned.
