E file taxes When To Make Deposits There are two methods for determining deposits: the regular method and the alternative method. E file taxes The regular method applies to all taxes in Part I of Form 720 except for communications and air transportation taxes if deposits are based on amounts billed or tickets sold, rather than on amounts actually collected. E file taxes See Alternative method below. E file taxes If you are depositing more than one tax under a method, combine all the taxes under the method and make one deposit for the semimonthly period. E file taxes Regular method. E file taxes The deposit of tax for a semimonthly period is due by the 14th day following that period. E file taxes Generally, this is the 29th day of a month for the first semimonthly period and the 14th day of the following month for the second semimonthly period. E file taxes If the 14th or the 29th day falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, you must make the deposit by the immediately preceding day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday. E file taxes Alternative method (IRS Nos. E file taxes 22, 26, 27, and 28). E file taxes Deposits of communications and air transportation taxes may be based on taxes included in amounts billed or tickets sold during a semimonthly period instead of on taxes actually collected during the period. E file taxes Under the alternative method, the tax included in amounts billed or tickets sold during a semimonthly period is considered collected during the first 7 days of the second following semimonthly period. E file taxes The deposit of tax is due by the 3rd banking day after the 7th day of that period. E file taxes For an example of the alternative method, see the Instructions for Form 720. E file taxes To use the alternative method, you must keep a separate account of the tax included in amounts billed or tickets sold during the month and report on Form 720 the tax included in amounts billed or tickets sold and not the amount of tax that is actually collected. E file taxes For example, amounts billed in December, January, and February are considered collected during January, February, and March and are reported on Form 720 as the tax for the 1st quarter of the calendar year. E file taxes The separate account for each month must reflect: All items of tax included in amounts billed or tickets sold during the month, and Other items of adjustment relating to tax for prior months (within the statute of limitations on credits or refunds). E file taxes The separate account for any month cannot include an adjustment resulting from a refusal to pay or inability to collect unless the refusal has been reported to the IRS. E file taxes See Uncollected Tax Report in chapter 4. E file taxes The net amount of tax that is considered collected during the semimonthly period must be either: The net amount of tax reflected in the separate account for the corresponding semimonthly period of the preceding month, or One-half of the net amount of tax reflected in the separate account for the preceding month. E file taxes Special rule for deposits of taxes in September. E file taxes See the Instructions for Form 720 for a special rule on deposits made in September. E file taxes Amount of Deposits Deposits for a semimonthly period generally must be at least 95% of the net tax liability for that period unless the safe harbor rule (discussed later) applies. E file taxes Generally, you do not have to make a deposit for a period in which you incurred no tax liability. E file taxes Net tax liability. E file taxes Your net tax liability is your tax liability for the period minus any claims on Schedule C (Form 720) for the period. E file taxes You may figure your net tax liability for a semimonthly period by dividing your net liability incurred during the calendar month by two. E file taxes If you use this method, you must use it for all semimonthly periods in the calendar quarter. E file taxes Do not reduce your liability by any amounts from Form 720X. E file taxes Safe Harbor Rule The safe harbor rule applies separately to deposits under the regular method and the alternative method. E file taxes Persons who filed Form 720 for the look-back quarter (the 2nd calendar quarter preceding the current quarter) are considered to meet the semimonthly deposit requirement if the deposit for each semimonthly period in the current quarter is at least 1/6 (16. E file taxes 67%) of the net tax liability reported for the look-back quarter. E file taxes For the semimonthly period for which the additional deposit is required, the additional deposit must be at least 11/90 12. E file taxes 23%), 10/90 (11. E file taxes 12%) for non-EFTPS, of the net tax liability reported for the look-back quarter. E file taxes Also, the total deposit for that semimonthly period must be at least 1/6 (16. E file taxes 67%) of the net tax liability reported for the look-back quarter. E file taxes Exceptions. E file taxes The safe harbor rule does not apply to: The 1st and 2nd quarters beginning on or after the effective date of an increase in the rate of tax unless the deposit of taxes for each semimonthly period in the calendar quarter is at least 1/6 (16. E file taxes 67%) of the tax liability you would have had for the look-back quarter if the increased rate of tax had been in effect for that look-back quarter, Any quarter if liability includes any tax not in effect throughout the look-back quarter, or For deposits under the alternative method, any quarter if liability includes any tax not in effect throughout the look-back quarter and the month preceding the look-back quarter. E file taxes Requirements to be met. E file taxes For the safe harbor rule to apply, you must: Make each deposit timely at an authorized financial institution, and Pay any underpayment for the current quarter by the due date of the return. E file taxes The IRS may withdraw the right to make deposits of tax using the safe harbor rule from any person not complying with these rules. E file taxes Tax rate increases. E file taxes You must modify the safe harbor rule if there has been an increase in the rate of tax. E file taxes You must figure your tax liability in the look-back quarter as if the increased rate had been in effect. E file taxes To qualify for the safe harbor rule, your deposits cannot be less than 1/6 of the refigured tax liability. E file taxes Prev Up Next Home More Online Publications
