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

Unemployment tax forms Notification of Alien Status You must let your employer know whether you are a resident or a nonresident alien so your employer can withhold the correct amount of tax from your wages. Unemployment tax forms If you are a resident alien under the rules discussed in chapter 1, you must file Form W-9 or a similar statement with your employer. Unemployment tax forms If you are a nonresident alien under those rules, you must furnish to your employer Form 8233 or Form W-8BEN, establishing that you are a foreign person, or Form W-4, establishing that your compensation is subject to graduated withholding at the same rates as resident aliens or U. Unemployment tax forms S. Unemployment tax forms citizens. Unemployment tax forms If you are a resident alien and you receive income other than wages (such as dividends and royalties) from sources within the United States, file Form W-9 or similar statement with the withholding agent (generally, the payer of the income) so the agent will not withhold tax on the income at the 30% (or lower treaty) rate. Unemployment tax forms If you receive this type of income as a nonresident alien, file Form W-8BEN with the withholding agent so that the agent will withhold tax at the 30% (or lower treaty) rate.

Unemployment tax forms Withholding From Compensation The following discussion generally applies only to nonresident aliens.

Unemployment tax forms Wages and other compensation paid to a nonresident alien for services performed as an employee are usually subject to graduated withholding at the same rates as resident aliens and U. Unemployment tax forms S. Unemployment tax forms citizens. Unemployment tax forms Therefore, your compensation, unless it is specifically excluded from the term “wages” by law, or is exempt from tax by treaty, is subject to graduated withholding. Unemployment tax forms Withholding on Wages If you are an employee and you receive wages subject to graduated withholding, you will be required to fill out a Form W-4. Unemployment tax forms Also fill out Form W-4 for a scholarship or fellowship grant to the extent it represents payment for past, present, or future services and for which you are not claiming a tax treaty withholding exemption on Form 8233 (discussed later under Income Entitled to Tax Treaty Benefits). Unemployment tax forms These are services you are required to perform as an employee and as a condition of receiving the scholarship or fellowship (or tuition reduction). Unemployment tax forms Nonresident aliens should fill out Form W-4 using the following instructions instead of the instructions on the Form W-4. Unemployment tax forms This is because of the restrictions on a nonresident alien's filing status, the limited number of personal exemptions a nonresident alien is allowed, and because a nonresident alien cannot claim the standard deduction.
