Amend federal tax return   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.

Amend federal tax return 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. Amend federal tax return You should keep your daily tip record with your tax or other personal records. Amend federal tax return You must keep your records for as long as they are important for administration of the federal tax law. Amend federal tax return For information on how long to keep records, see How Long to Keep Records in chapter 1 of Publication 17, Your Federal Income Tax. Amend federal tax return    If you keep a tip diary, you can use Form 4070A, Employee's Daily Record of Tips. Amend federal tax return 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. Amend federal tax return Publication 1244 is also available at www. Amend federal tax return irs. Amend federal tax return gov/pub1244.

Amend federal tax return A filled-in Form 4070A is shown on the following page. Amend federal tax return   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. Amend federal tax return Although you do not report these tips to your employer, you must report them on your tax return.

Amend federal tax return   You can use an electronic system provided by your employer to record your daily tips. Amend federal tax return If you do, you must receive and keep a paper copy of this record. Amend federal tax return Service charges. Amend federal tax return    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. Amend federal tax return This is part of your wages, not a tip. Amend federal tax return 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. Amend federal tax return See examples below. Amend federal tax return Example 1. Amend federal tax return Good Food Restaurant adds an 18% charge to the bill for parties of 6 or more customers. Amend federal tax return 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. Amend federal tax return Because Jane did not have an unrestricted right to determine the amount on the “tip line,” the 18% charge is considered a service charge. Amend federal tax return Do not include the 18% charge in your tip diary. Amend federal tax return Service charges that are paid to you are considered wages, not tips. Amend federal tax return Example 2. Amend federal tax return Good Food Restaurant includes sample calculations of tip amounts at the bottom of its bills for food and beverages provided to customers. Amend federal tax return 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. Amend federal tax return Because David is free to enter any amount on the “tip line” or leave it blank, any amount he includes is considered a tip. Amend federal tax return Be sure to include this amount in your tip diary.
