for Deducting Pay To be deductible, your employees' pay must be an ordinary and necessary business expense and you must pay or incur it. 2014 state tax forms These and other requirements that apply to all business expenses are explained in chapter 1. 2014 state tax forms In addition, the pay must meet both of the following tests. 2014 state tax forms Test 1. 2014 state tax forms It must be reasonable. 2014 state tax forms Test 2. 2014 state tax forms It must be for services performed. 2014 state tax forms The form or method of figuring the pay does not affect its deductibility. 2014 state tax forms For example, bonuses and commissions based on sales or earnings, and paid under an agreement made before the services were performed, are both deductible. 2014 state tax forms Test 1—Reasonableness You must be able to prove that the pay is reasonable. 2014 state tax forms Whether the pay is reasonable depends on the circumstances that existed when you contracted for the services, not those that exist when reasonableness is questioned. 2014 state tax forms If the pay is excessive, the excess pay is disallowed as a deduction. 2014 state tax forms Factors to consider. 2014 state tax forms   Determine the reasonableness of pay by the facts and circumstances. 2014 state tax forms Generally, reasonable pay is the amount that a similar business would pay for the same or similar services. 2014 state tax forms   To determine if pay is reasonable, also consider the following items and any other pertinent facts. 2014 state tax forms The duties performed by the employee. 2014 state tax forms The volume of business handled. 2014 state tax forms The character and amount of responsibility. 2014 state tax forms The complexities of your business. 2014 state tax forms The amount of time required. 2014 state tax forms The cost of living in the locality. 2014 state tax forms The ability and achievements of the individual employee performing the service. 2014 state tax forms The pay compared with the gross and net income of the business, as well as with distributions to shareholders if the business is a corporation. 2014 state tax forms Your policy regarding pay for all your employees. 2014 state tax forms The history of pay for each employee. 2014 state tax forms Test 2—For Services Performed You must be able to prove the payment was made for services actually performed. 2014 state tax forms Employee-shareholder salaries. 2014 state tax forms   If a corporation pays an employee who is also a shareholder a salary that is unreasonably high considering the services actually performed, the excessive part of the salary may be treated as a constructive dividend to the employee-shareholder. 2014 state tax forms The excessive part of the salary would not be allowed as a salary deduction by the corporation. 2014 state tax forms For more information on corporate distributions to shareholders, see Publication 542, Corporations. 2014 state tax forms Kinds of Pay Some of the ways you may provide pay to your employees in addition to regular wages or salaries are discussed next. 2014 state tax forms For specialized and detailed information on employees' pay and the employment tax treatment of employees' pay, see Publications 15, 15-A, and 15-B. 2014 state tax forms Awards You can generally deduct amounts you pay to your employees as awards, whether paid in cash or property. 2014 state tax forms If you give property to an employee as an employee achievement award, your deduction may be limited. 2014 state tax forms Achievement awards. 2014 state tax forms   An achievement award is an item of tangible personal property that meets all the following requirements. 2014 state tax forms It is given to an employee for length of service or safety achievement. 2014 state tax forms It is awarded as part of a meaningful presentation. 2014 state tax forms It is awarded under conditions and circumstances that do not create a significant likelihood of disguised pay. 2014 state tax forms Length-of-service award. 2014 state tax forms    An award will qualify as a length-of-service award only if either of the following applies. 2014 state tax forms The employee receives the award after his or her first 5 years of employment. 2014 state tax forms The employee did not receive another length-of-service award (other than one of very small value) during the same year or in any of the prior 4 years. 2014 state tax forms Safety achievement award. 2014 state tax forms    An award for safety achievement will qualify as an achievement award unless one of the following applies. 2014 state tax forms It is given to a manager, administrator, clerical employee, or other professional employee. 2014 state tax forms During the tax year, more than 10% of your employees, excluding those listed in (1), have already received a safety achievement award (other than one of very small value). 2014 state tax forms Deduction limit. 2014 state tax forms   Your deduction for the cost of employee achievement awards given to any one employee during the tax year is limited to the following. 2014 state tax forms $400 for awards that are not qualified plan awards. 2014 state tax forms $1,600 for all awards, whether or not qualified plan awards. 2014 state tax forms   A qualified plan award is an achievement award given as part of an established written plan or program that does not favor highly compensated employees as to eligibility or benefits. 2014 state tax forms   A highly compensated employee is an employee who meets either of the following tests. 2014 state tax forms The employee was a 5% owner at any time during the year or the preceding year. 2014 state tax forms The employee received more than $115,000 in pay for the preceding year. 2014 state tax forms You can choose to ignore test (2) if the employee was not also in the top 20% of employees ranked by pay for the preceding year. 2014 state tax forms   An award is not a qualified plan award if the average cost of all the employee achievement awards given during the tax year (that would be qualified plan awards except for this limit) is more than $400. 2014 state tax forms To figure this average cost, ignore awards of nominal value. 2014 state tax forms Deduct achievement awards as a nonwage business expense on your return or business schedule. 2014 state tax forms You may not owe employment taxes on the value of some achievement awards you provide to an employee. 2014 state tax forms See Publication 15-B. 2014 state tax forms Bonuses You can generally deduct a bonus paid to an employee if you intended the bonus as additional pay for services, not as a gift, and the services were performed. 2014 state tax forms However, the total bonuses, salaries, and other pay must be reasonable for the services performed. 2014 state tax forms If the bonus is paid in property, see Property , later. 2014 state tax forms Gifts of nominal value. 2014 state tax forms    If, to promote employee goodwill, you distribute food or merchandise of nominal value to your employees at holidays, you can deduct the cost of these items as a nonwage business expense. 2014 state tax forms Your deduction for de minimis gifts of food or drink are not subject to the 50% deduction limit that generally applies to meals. 2014 state tax forms For more information on this deduction limit, see Meals and lodging , later. 2014 state tax forms Education Expenses If you pay or reimburse education expenses for an employee, you can deduct the payments if they are part of a qualified educational assistance program. 2014 state tax forms Deduct them on the “Employee benefit programs” or other appropriate line of your tax return. 2014 state tax forms For information on educational assistance programs, see Educational Assistance in section 2 of Publication 15-B. 2014 state tax forms Fringe Benefits A fringe benefit is a form of pay for the performance of services. 2014 state tax forms You can generally deduct the cost of fringe benefits. 2014 state tax forms You may be able to exclude all or part of the value of some fringe benefits from your employees' pay. 2014 state tax forms You also may not owe employment taxes on the value of the fringe benefits. 2014 state tax forms See Table 2-1, Special Rules for Various Types of Fringe Benefits, in Publication 15-B for details. 2014 state tax forms Your deduction for the cost of fringe benefits for activities generally considered entertainment, amusement, or recreation, or for a facility used in connection with such an activity (for example, a company aircraft) for certain officers, directors, and more-than-10% shareholders is limited. 2014 state tax forms Certain fringe benefits are discussed next. 2014 state tax forms See Publication 15-B for more details on these and other fringe benefits. 2014 state tax forms Meals and lodging. 2014 state tax forms   You can usually deduct the cost of furnishing meals and lodging to your employees. 2014 state tax forms Deduct the cost in whatever category the expense falls. 2014 state tax forms For example, if you operate a restaurant, deduct the cost of the meals you furnish to employees as part of the cost of goods sold. 2014 state tax forms If you operate a nursing home, motel, or rental property, deduct the cost of furnishing lodging to an employee as expenses for utilities, linen service, salaries, depreciation, etc. 2014 state tax forms Deduction limit on meals. 2014 state tax forms   You can generally deduct only 50% of the cost of furnishing meals to your employees. 2014 state tax forms However, you can deduct the full cost of the following meals. 2014 state tax forms Meals whose value you include in an employee's wages. 2014 state tax forms Meals that qualify as a de minimis fringe benefit as discussed in section 2 of Publication 15-B. 2014 state tax forms This generally includes meals you furnish to employees at your place of business if more than half of these employees are provided the meals for your convenience. 2014 state tax forms Meals you furnish to your employees at the work site when you operate a restaurant or catering service. 2014 state tax forms Meals you furnish to your employees as part of the expense of providing recreational or social activities, such as a company picnic. 2014 state tax forms Meals you are required by federal law to furnish to crew members of certain commercial vessels (or would be required to furnish if the vessels were operated at sea). 2014 state tax forms This does not include meals you furnish on vessels primarily providing luxury water transportation. 2014 state tax forms Meals you furnish on an oil or gas platform or drilling rig located offshore or in Alaska. 2014 state tax forms This includes meals you furnish at a support camp that is near and integral to an oil or gas drilling rig located in Alaska. 2014 state tax forms Employee benefit programs. 2014 state tax forms   Employee benefit programs include the following. 2014 state tax forms Accident and health plans. 2014 state tax forms Adoption assistance. 2014 state tax forms Cafeteria plans. 2014 state tax forms Dependent care assistance. 2014 state tax forms Education assistance. 2014 state tax forms Life insurance coverage. 2014 state tax forms Welfare benefit funds. 2014 state tax forms   You can generally deduct amounts you spend on employee benefit programs on the applicable line of your tax return. 2014 state tax forms For example, if you provide dependent care by operating a dependent care facility for your employees, deduct your costs in whatever categories they fall (utilities, salaries, etc. 2014 state tax forms ). 2014 state tax forms Life insurance coverage. 2014 state tax forms   You cannot deduct the cost of life insurance coverage for you, an employee, or any person with a financial interest in your business, if you are directly or indirectly the beneficiary of the policy. 2014 state tax forms See Regulations section 1. 2014 state tax forms 264-1 for more information. 2014 state tax forms Welfare benefit funds. 2014 state tax forms   A welfare benefit fund is a funded plan (or a funded arrangement having the effect of a plan) that provides welfare benefits to your employees, independent contractors, or their beneficiaries. 2014 state tax forms Welfare benefits are any benefits other than deferred compensation or transfers of restricted property. 2014 state tax forms   Your deduction for contributions to a welfare benefit fund is limited to the fund's qualified cost for the tax year. 2014 state tax forms If your contributions to the fund are more than its qualified cost, carry the excess over to the next tax year. 2014 state tax forms   Generally, the fund's “qualified cost” is the total of the following amounts, reduced by the after-tax income of the fund. 2014 state tax forms The cost you would have been able to deduct using the cash method of accounting if you had paid for the benefits directly. 2014 state tax forms The contributions added to a reserve account that are needed to fund claims incurred but not paid as of the end of the year. 2014 state tax forms These claims can be for supplemental unemployment benefits, severance pay, or disability, medical, or life insurance benefits. 2014 state tax forms   For more information, see sections 419(c) and 419A of the Internal Revenue Code and the related regulations. 2014 state tax forms Loans or Advances You generally can deduct as wages an advance you make to an employee for services performed if you do not expect the employee to repay the advance. 2014 state tax forms However, if the employee performs no services, treat the amount you advanced as a loan. 2014 state tax forms If the employee does not repay the loan, treat it as income to the employee. 2014 state tax forms Below-market interest rate loans. 2014 state tax forms   On certain loans you make to an employee or shareholder, you are treated as having received interest income and as having paid compensation or dividends equal to that interest. 2014 state tax forms See Below-Market Loans in chapter 4. 2014 state tax forms Property If you transfer property (including your company's stock) to an employee as payment for services, you can generally deduct it as wages. 2014 state tax forms The amount you can deduct is the property's fair market value on the date of the transfer less any amount the employee paid for the property. 2014 state tax forms You can claim the deduction only for the tax year in which your employee includes the property's value in income. 2014 state tax forms Your employee is deemed to have included the value in income if you report it on Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, in a timely manner. 2014 state tax forms You treat the deductible amount as received in exchange for the property, and you must recognize any gain or loss realized on the transfer, unless it is the company's stock transferred as payment for services. 2014 state tax forms Your gain or loss is the difference between the fair market value of the property and its adjusted basis on the date of transfer. 2014 state tax forms These rules also apply to property transferred to an independent contractor for services, generally reported on Form 1099-MISC, Miscellaneous Income. 2014 state tax forms Restricted property. 2014 state tax forms   If the property you transfer for services is subject to restrictions that affect its value, you generally cannot deduct it and do not report gain or loss until it is substantially vested in the recipient. 2014 state tax forms However, if the recipient pays for the property, you must report any gain at the time of the transfer up to the amount paid. 2014 state tax forms    “Substantially vested” means the property is not subject to a substantial risk of forfeiture. 2014 state tax forms This means that the recipient is not likely to have to give up his or her rights in the property in the future. 2014 state tax forms Reimbursements for Business Expenses You can generally deduct the amount you pay or reimburse employees for business expenses incurred for your business. 2014 state tax forms However, your deduction may be limited. 2014 state tax forms If you make the payment under an accountable plan, deduct it in the category of the expense paid. 2014 state tax forms For example, if you pay an employee for travel expenses incurred on your behalf, deduct this payment as a travel expense. 2014 state tax forms If you make the payment under a nonaccountable plan, deduct it as wages and include it in the employee's Form W-2. 2014 state tax forms See Reimbursement of Travel, Meals, and Entertainment in chapter 11 for more information about deducting reimbursements and an explanation of accountable and nonaccountable plans. 2014 state tax forms Sick and Vacation Pay Sick pay. 2014 state tax forms   You can deduct amounts you pay to your employees for sickness and injury, including lump-sum amounts, as wages. 2014 state tax forms However, your deduction is limited to amounts not compensated by insurance or other means. 2014 state tax forms Vacation pay. 2014 state tax forms   Vacation pay is an employee benefit. 2014 state tax forms It includes amounts paid for unused vacation leave. 2014 state tax forms You can deduct vacation pay only in the tax year in which the employee actually receives it. 2014 state tax forms This rule applies regardless of whether you use the cash or accrual method of accounting. 2014 state tax forms Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications

Tax Relief for Victims of Hurricane Irene in Vermont

E-file to Remain Open through Oct. 31 for Irene Victims

Updated 9/16/11 to add a link to Notice 2011-74.
Updated 9/15/11 to add Franklin, Lamoille and Orleans counties.
Updated 9/7/11 to add Caledonia county.
Updated 9/6/11 to add Addison, Bennington, Orange and Windham counties.

VT-2011-34, Sept. 2, 2011

BOSTON — Victims of Hurricane Irene that began on Aug. 29, 2011 in parts of Vermont may qualify for tax relief from the Internal Revenue Service.

The President has declared the following counties a federal disaster area: Addison, Bennington, Caledonia, Chittenden, Franklin, Lamoille, Orleans, Orange, Rutland, Washington, Windham and Windsor. Individuals who reside or have a business in these counties may qualify for tax relief.

The declaration permits the IRS to postpone certain deadlines for taxpayers who reside or have a business in the disaster area. For instance, certain deadlines falling on or after Aug. 29, and on or before Oct. 31, have been postponed to Oct. 31, 2011. This includes corporations and other businesses that previously obtained an extension until Sept. 15 to file their 2010 returns, and individuals and businesses that received a similar extension until Oct. 17. It also includes the estimated tax payment for the third quarter, normally due Sept. 15.  

In addition, the IRS is waiving the failure-to-deposit penalties for employment and excise tax deposits due on or after Aug. 29, and on or before Sept. 13, as long as the deposits are made by Sept. 13, 2011.

If an affected taxpayer receives a penalty notice from the IRS, the taxpayer should call the telephone number on the notice to have the IRS abate any interest and any late filing or late payment penalties that would otherwise apply. Penalties or interest will be abated only for taxpayers who have an original or extended filing, payment or deposit due date, including an extended filing or payment due date, that falls within the postponement period.

The IRS automatically identifies taxpayers located in the covered disaster area and applies automatic filing and payment relief. But affected taxpayers who reside or have a business located outside the covered disaster area must call the IRS disaster hotline at 1-866-562-5227 to request this tax relief.

Covered Disaster Area

The counties listed above constitute a covered disaster area for purposes of Treas. Reg. § 301.7508A-1(d)(2) and are entitled to the relief detailed below.

Affected Taxpayers

Taxpayers considered to be affected taxpayers eligible for the postponement of time to file returns, pay taxes and perform other time-sensitive acts are those taxpayers listed in Treas. Reg. § 301.7508A-1(d)(1), and include individuals who live, and businesses whose principal place of business is located, in the covered disaster area. Taxpayers not in the covered disaster area, but whose records necessary to meet a deadline listed in Treas. Reg. § 301.7508A-1(c) are in the covered disaster area, are also entitled to relief. In addition, all relief workers affiliated with a recognized government or philanthropic organization assisting in the relief activities in the covered disaster area and any individual visiting the covered disaster area who was killed or injured as a result of the disaster are entitled to relief.

Grant of Relief

Under section 7508A, the IRS gives affected taxpayers until Oct. 31 to file most tax returns (including individual, corporate, and estate and trust income tax returns; partnership returns, S corporation returns, and trust returns; estate, gift, and generation-skipping transfer tax returns; and employment and certain excise tax returns), or to make tax payments, including estimated tax payments, that have either an original or extended due date occurring on or after Aug. 29 and on or before Oct. 31.

The IRS also gives affected taxpayers until Oct. 31 to perform other time-sensitive actions described in Treas. Reg. § 301.7508A-1(c)(1) and Rev. Proc. 2007-56, 2007-34 I.R.B. 388 (Aug. 20, 2007), that are due to be performed on or after Aug. 29 and on or before Oct. 31.

This relief also includes the filing of Form 5500 series returns, in the manner described in section 8 of Rev. Proc. 2007-56. The relief described in section 17 of Rev. Proc. 2007-56, pertaining to like-kind exchanges of property, also applies to certain taxpayers who are not otherwise affected taxpayers and may include acts required to be performed before or after the period above.

The postponement of time to file and pay does not apply to information returns in the W-2, 1098, 1099 series, or to Forms 1042-S or 8027. Penalties for failure to timely file information returns can be waived under existing procedures for reasonable cause. Likewise, the postponement does not apply to employment and excise tax deposits. The IRS, however, will abate penalties for failure to make timely employment and excise tax deposits due on or after Aug. 29 and on or before Sept. 13 provided the taxpayer makes these deposits by Sept. 13.

Casualty Losses

Affected taxpayers in a federally declared disaster area have the option of claiming disaster-related casualty losses on their federal income tax return for either this year or last year. Claiming the loss on an original or amended return for last year will get the taxpayer an earlier refund, but waiting to claim the loss on this year’s return could result in a greater tax saving, depending on other income factors.

Individuals may deduct personal property losses that are not covered by insurance or other reimbursements. For details, see Form 4684 and its instructions.

Affected taxpayers claiming the disaster loss on last year’s return should put the Disaster Designation “Vermont /Hurricane Irene” at the top of the form so that the IRS can expedite the processing of the refund.

Other Relief

The IRS will waive the usual fees and expedite requests for copies of previously filed tax returns for affected taxpayers. Taxpayers should put the assigned Disaster Designation in red ink at the top of Form 4506, Request for Copy of Tax Return, or Form 4506-T, Request for Transcript of Tax Return, as appropriate, and submit it to the IRS.

Affected taxpayers who are contacted by the IRS on a collection or examination matter should explain how the disaster impacts them so that the IRS can provide appropriate consideration to their case.

Taxpayers may download forms and publications from the official IRS website, irs.gov, or order them by calling 1-800-TAX-FORM (1-800-829-3676). The IRS toll-free number for general tax questions is 1-800-829-1040.
