Electronic file 1040ez A semimonthly period is the first 15 days of a month (the first semimonthly period) or the 16th through the last day of a month (the second semimonthly period). Electronic file 1040ez However, no deposit is required for the situations listed below; the taxes are payable with Form 720. Electronic file 1040ez The net liability for taxes listed in Part I (Form 720) does not exceed $2,500 for the quarter. Electronic file 1040ez The gas guzzler tax is being paid on a one-time filing. Electronic file 1040ez The liability is for taxes listed in Part II (Form 720), except for the floor stocks tax which generally requires a single deposit. Electronic file 1040ez How To Make Deposits Electronic deposit requirement. Electronic file 1040ez   You must use electronic funds transfer to make excise tax deposits. Electronic file 1040ez Generally, electronic funds transfers are made using the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS). Electronic file 1040ez If you do not want to use EFTPS, you can arrange for your tax professional, financial institution, payroll service, or other trusted third party to make deposits on your behalf. Electronic file 1040ez Also, you may arrange for your financial institution to initiate a same-day wire payment on your behalf. Electronic file 1040ez   EFTPS is a free service provided by the Department of Treasury. Electronic file 1040ez Services provided by your tax professional, financial institution, payroll service, or other third party may have a fee. Electronic file 1040ez To get more information about EFTPS or to enroll in EFTPS, visit www. Electronic file 1040ez eftps. Electronic file 1040ez gov or call 1-800-555-4477. Electronic file 1040ez Additional information about EFTPS is also available in Publication 966, Electronic Federal Tax Payment System: A Guide to Getting Started. Electronic file 1040ez    Depositing on time. Electronic file 1040ez For EFTPS deposits to be on time, you must initiate the transaction at least 1 day before the date the deposit is due (before 8:00 p. Electronic file 1040ez m. Electronic file 1040ez Eastern time). Electronic file 1040ez You will automatically be enrolled in EFTPS when you apply for an EIN. Electronic file 1040ez You will receive a separate mailing containing instructions for activating your EFTPS enrollment after you receive your EIN. Electronic file 1040ez When To Make Deposits There are two methods for determining deposits: the regular method and the alternative method. Electronic file 1040ez 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. Electronic file 1040ez See Alternative method below. Electronic file 1040ez 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. Electronic file 1040ez Regular method. Electronic file 1040ez   The deposit of tax for a semimonthly period is due by the 14th day following that period. Electronic file 1040ez 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. Electronic file 1040ez 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. Electronic file 1040ez Alternative method (IRS Nos. Electronic file 1040ez 22, 26, 27, and 28). Electronic file 1040ez   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. Electronic file 1040ez 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. Electronic file 1040ez The deposit of tax is due by the 3rd banking day after the 7th day of that period. Electronic file 1040ez   For an example of the alternative method, see the Instructions for Form 720. Electronic file 1040ez 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. Electronic file 1040ez 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. Electronic file 1040ez 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). Electronic file 1040ez 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. Electronic file 1040ez See Uncollected Tax Report in chapter 4. Electronic file 1040ez 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. Electronic file 1040ez Special rule for deposits of taxes in September. Electronic file 1040ez   See the Instructions for Form 720 for a special rule on deposits made in September. Electronic file 1040ez 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. Electronic file 1040ez Generally, you do not have to make a deposit for a period in which you incurred no tax liability. Electronic file 1040ez Net tax liability. Electronic file 1040ez   Your net tax liability is your tax liability for the period minus any claims on Schedule C (Form 720) for the period. Electronic file 1040ez You may figure your net tax liability for a semimonthly period by dividing your net liability incurred during the calendar month by two. Electronic file 1040ez If you use this method, you must use it for all semimonthly periods in the calendar quarter. Electronic file 1040ez Do not reduce your liability by any amounts from Form 720X. Electronic file 1040ez Safe Harbor Rule The safe harbor rule applies separately to deposits under the regular method and the alternative method. Electronic file 1040ez 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. Electronic file 1040ez 67%) of the net tax liability reported for the look-back quarter. Electronic file 1040ez For the semimonthly period for which the additional deposit is required, the additional deposit must be at least 11/90 12. Electronic file 1040ez 23%), 10/90 (11. Electronic file 1040ez 12%) for non-EFTPS, of the net tax liability reported for the look-back quarter. Electronic file 1040ez Also, the total deposit for that semimonthly period must be at least 1/6 (16. Electronic file 1040ez 67%) of the net tax liability reported for the look-back quarter. Electronic file 1040ez Exceptions. Electronic file 1040ez   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. Electronic file 1040ez 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. Electronic file 1040ez Requirements to be met. Electronic file 1040ez   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. Electronic file 1040ez    The IRS may withdraw the right to make deposits of tax using the safe harbor rule from any person not complying with these rules. Electronic file 1040ez Tax rate increases. Electronic file 1040ez   You must modify the safe harbor rule if there has been an increase in the rate of tax. Electronic file 1040ez You must figure your tax liability in the look-back quarter as if the increased rate had been in effect. Electronic file 1040ez To qualify for the safe harbor rule, your deposits cannot be less than 1/6 of the refigured tax liability.
