Irs gov freefile Publication 597 - Introductory Material Table of Contents Introduction Introduction This publication provides information on the income tax treaty between the United States and Canada. Irs gov freefile It discusses a number of treaty provisions that often apply to U. Irs gov freefile S. Irs gov freefile citizens or residents who may be liable for Canadian tax. Irs gov freefile Treaty provisions are generally reciprocal (the same rules apply to both treaty countries). Irs gov freefile Therefore, a Canadian resident who receives income from the United States may refer to this publication to see if a treaty provision may affect the tax to be paid to the United States. Irs gov freefile This publication does not deal with Canadian income tax laws; nor does it provide Canada's interpretation of treaty articles, definitions, or specific terms not defined in the treaty itself. Irs gov freefile The United States—Canada income tax treaty was signed on September 26, 1980. Irs gov freefile It has been amended by five protocols, the most recent of which generally became effective January 1, 2009. Irs gov freefile In this publication, the term “article” refers to the particular article of the treaty, as amended. Irs gov freefile Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications

The Irs Gov Freefile

Irs gov freefile Publication 531 - Main Content Table of Contents Keeping a Daily Tip RecordElectronic tip record. Irs gov freefile Reporting Tips to Your EmployerElectronic tip statement. Irs gov freefile Final report. Irs gov freefile Tip Rate Determination and Education Program Reporting Tips on Your Tax Return Allocated Tips How To Get Tax Help Keeping a Daily Tip Record Why keep a daily tip record. Irs gov freefile   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. Irs gov freefile How to keep a daily tip record. Irs gov freefile   There are two ways to keep a daily tip record. Irs gov freefile 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. Irs gov freefile You should keep your daily tip record with your tax or other personal records. Irs gov freefile You must keep your records for as long as they are important for administration of the federal tax law. Irs gov freefile For information on how long to keep records, see How Long to Keep Records in chapter 1 of Publication 17, Your Federal Income Tax. Irs gov freefile    If you keep a tip diary, you can use Form 4070A, Employee's Daily Record of Tips. Irs gov freefile 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. Irs gov freefile Publication 1244 is also available at www. Irs gov freefile irs. Irs gov freefile gov/pub1244. Irs gov freefile Publication 1244 includes a 1-year supply of Form 4070A. Irs gov freefile Each day, write in the information asked for on the form. Irs gov freefile A filled-in Form 4070A is shown on the following page. Irs gov freefile   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. Irs gov freefile Although you do not report these tips to your employer, you must report them on your tax return. Irs gov freefile   If you do not use Form 4070A, start your records by writing your name, your employer's name, and the name of the business (if it is different from your employer's name). Irs gov freefile Then, each workday, write the date and the following information. Irs gov freefile Cash tips you get directly from customers or from other employees. Irs gov freefile Tips from credit and debit card charge customers that your employer pays you. Irs gov freefile The value of any noncash tips you get, such as tickets, passes, or other items of value. Irs gov freefile The amount of tips you paid out to other employees through tip pools or tip splitting, or other arrangements, and the names of the employees to whom you paid the tips. Irs gov freefile Please click here for the text description of the image. Irs gov freefile Sample Filled-in Form 4070A from Publication 1244 Electronic tip record. Irs gov freefile   You can use an electronic system provided by your employer to record your daily tips. Irs gov freefile If you do, you must receive and keep a paper copy of this record. Irs gov freefile Service charges. Irs gov freefile    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. Irs gov freefile This is part of your wages, not a tip. Irs gov freefile 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. Irs gov freefile See examples below. Irs gov freefile Example 1. Irs gov freefile Good Food Restaurant adds an 18% charge to the bill for parties of 6 or more customers. Irs gov freefile 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. Irs gov freefile Because Jane did not have an unrestricted right to determine the amount on the “tip line,” the 18% charge is considered a service charge. Irs gov freefile Do not include the 18% charge in your tip diary. Irs gov freefile Service charges that are paid to you are considered wages, not tips. Irs gov freefile Example 2. Irs gov freefile Good Food Restaurant includes sample calculations of tip amounts at the bottom of its bills for food and beverages provided to customers. Irs gov freefile 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. Irs gov freefile Because David is free to enter any amount on the “tip line” or leave it blank, any amount he includes is considered a tip. Irs gov freefile Be sure to include this amount in your tip diary. Irs gov freefile Sample Filled-in Form 4070 from Publication 1244 Please click here for the text description of the image. Irs gov freefile Filled-in Form 4070 Reporting Tips to Your Employer Why report tips to your employer. Irs gov freefile   You must report tips to your employer so that: Your employer can withhold federal income tax and social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes, Your employer can report the correct amount of your earnings to the Social Security Administration or Railroad Retirement Board (which affects your benefits when you retire or if you become disabled, or your family's benefits if you die), and You can avoid the penalty for not reporting tips to your employer (explained later). Irs gov freefile What tips to report. Irs gov freefile   Report to your employer only cash, check, and debit and credit card tips you receive. Irs gov freefile   If your total tips for any 1 month from any one job are less than $20, do not report the tips for that month to that employer. Irs gov freefile   If you participate in a tip-splitting or tip-pooling arrangement, report only the tips you receive and retain. Irs gov freefile Do not report to your employer any portion of the tips you receive that you pass on to other employees. Irs gov freefile However, you must report tips you receive from other employees. Irs gov freefile   Do not report the value of any noncash tips, such as tickets or passes, to your employer. Irs gov freefile You do not pay social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes on these tips. Irs gov freefile How to report. Irs gov freefile   If your employer does not give you any other way to report your tips, you can use Form 4070, Employee's Report of Tips to Employer. Irs gov freefile Fill in the information asked for on the form, sign and date the form, and give it to your employer. Irs gov freefile A sample filled-in Form 4070 is shown above. Irs gov freefile To get a 1-year supply of the form, ask the IRS or your employer for Publication 1244. Irs gov freefile   If you do not use Form 4070, give your employer a statement with the following information. Irs gov freefile Your name, address, and social security number. Irs gov freefile Your employer's name, address, and business name (if it is different from your employer's name). Irs gov freefile The month (or the dates of any shorter period) in which you received tips. Irs gov freefile The total tips required to be reported for that period. Irs gov freefile You must sign and date the statement. Irs gov freefile Be sure to keep a copy with your tax or other personal records. Irs gov freefile   Your employer may require you to report your tips more than once a month. Irs gov freefile However, the statement cannot cover a period of more than 1 calendar month. Irs gov freefile Electronic tip statement. Irs gov freefile   Your employer can have you furnish your tip statements electronically. Irs gov freefile When to report. Irs gov freefile   Give your report for each month to your employer by the 10th of the next month. Irs gov freefile If the 10th falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, give your employer the report by the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday. Irs gov freefile Example. Irs gov freefile You must report your tips received in September 2014 by October 10, 2014. Irs gov freefile Final report. Irs gov freefile   If your employment ends during the month, you can report your tips when your employment ends. Irs gov freefile Penalty for not reporting tips. Irs gov freefile   If you do not report tips to your employer as required, you may be subject to a penalty equal to 50% of the social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes you owe on the unreported tips. Irs gov freefile (For information about these taxes, see Reporting social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes on tips not reported to your employer under Reporting Tips on Your Tax Return, later. Irs gov freefile ) The penalty amount is in addition to the taxes you owe. Irs gov freefile   You can avoid this penalty if you can show reasonable cause for not reporting the tips to your employer. Irs gov freefile To do so, attach a statement to your return explaining why you did not report them. Irs gov freefile Giving your employer money for taxes. Irs gov freefile   Your regular pay may not be enough for your employer to withhold all the taxes you owe on your regular pay plus your reported tips. Irs gov freefile If this happens, you can give your employer money until the close of the calendar year to pay the rest of the taxes. Irs gov freefile   If you do not give your employer enough money, your employer will apply your regular pay and any money you give to the taxes, in the following order. Irs gov freefile All taxes on your regular pay. Irs gov freefile Social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes on your reported tips. Irs gov freefile Federal, state, and local income taxes on your reported tips. Irs gov freefile    Any taxes that remain unpaid can be collected by your employer from your next paycheck. Irs gov freefile If withholding taxes remain uncollected at the end of the year, you may be subject to a penalty for underpayment of estimated taxes. Irs gov freefile See Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax, for more information. Irs gov freefile    Uncollected taxes. Irs gov freefile You must report on your tax return any social security and Medicare taxes, or railroad retirement taxes that remained uncollected at the end of 2013. Irs gov freefile These uncollected taxes will be shown on your 2013 Form W-2. Irs gov freefile See Reporting uncollected social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes on tips reported to your employer under Reporting Tips on Your Tax Return, later. Irs gov freefile Tip Rate Determination and Education Program Your employer may participate in the Tip Rate Determination and Education Program. Irs gov freefile The program was developed to help employees and employers understand and meet their tip reporting responsibilities. Irs gov freefile There are two agreements under the program: the Tip Rate Determination Agreement (TRDA) and the Tip Reporting Alternative Commitment (TRAC). Irs gov freefile A variation of the TRAC program, the Employer Tip Reporting Alternative Commitment, (EmTRAC) was designed to allow employers in the food and beverage industry to design and receive approval for their own TRAC programs. Irs gov freefile For information on the EmTRAC program, see Notice 2001-1, which is on page 261 of Internal Revenue Bulletin 2001-2 at www. Irs gov freefile irs. Irs gov freefile gov/pub/irs-irbs/irb01-02. Irs gov freefile pdf.

Irs gov freefile Any tips you reported to your employer as required in 2013 are included in the wages shown in box 1 of your Form W-2. Irs gov freefile Add to the amount in box 1 only the tips you did not report to your employer. Irs gov freefile   However, any tips you received in 2013 that you reported to your employer as required after 2013 but before January 11, 2014, are not included in the wages shown in box 1 of your 2013 Form W-2. Irs gov freefile Do not include the amount of these tips on your 2013 tax return. Irs gov freefile Instead, include them on your 2014 tax return. Irs gov freefile Tips you received in 2012 that you reported to your employer as required after 2012 but before January 11, 2013, are included in the wages shown in box 1 of your 2013 Form W-2.

Irs gov freefile   If you participate in a tip-splitting or tip-pooling arrangement, report only the tips you receive and retain. Irs gov freefile Do not report on your income tax return any portion of the tips you receive that you pass on to other employees. Irs gov freefile However, you must report tips you receive from other employees. Irs gov freefile    If you received $20 or more in cash and charge tips in a month and did not report all of those tips to your employer, see Reporting social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes on tips not reported to your employer, later. Irs gov freefile    If you did not keep a daily tip record as required and an amount is shown in box 8 of your Form W-2, see Allocated Tips, later.

Irs gov freefile He was not required to report his June tips to his employer, but he reported all of the rest of his tips to his employer as required. Irs gov freefile Ben's Form W-2 from Blue Ocean Restaurant shows $17,000 ($10,000 wages + $7,000 reported tips) in box 1. Irs gov freefile He adds the $18 unreported tips to that amount and reports $17,018 as wages on his tax return. Irs gov freefile Reporting social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes on tips not reported to your employer. Irs gov freefile    If you received $20 or more in cash and charge tips in a month from any one job and did not report all of those tips to your employer, you must report the social security, Medicare, and Additional Medicare taxes on the unreported tips as additional tax on your return. Irs gov freefile To report these taxes, you must file a return even if you would not otherwise have to file. Irs gov freefile You must use Form 1040, Form 1040NR, Form 1040NR-EZ, Form 1040-SS, or 1040-PR (as appropriate) for this purpose. Irs gov freefile (You cannot file Form 1040EZ or Form 1040A. Irs gov freefile )    Use Form 4137, Social Security and Medicare Tax on Unreported Tip Income, to figure social security and Medicare taxes. Irs gov freefile Enter the tax on your return as instructed, and attach the completed Form 4137 to your return. Irs gov freefile Use Form 8959 to figure Additional Medicare Tax.

Irs gov freefile To get railroad retirement credit, you must report tips to your employer. Irs gov freefile Reporting uncollected social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes on tips reported to your employer. Irs gov freefile    You may have uncollected taxes if your regular pay was not enough for your employer to withhold all the taxes you owe and you did not give your employer enough money to pay the rest of the taxes. Irs gov freefile For more information, see Giving your employer money for taxes , under Reporting Tips to Your Employer, earlier. Irs gov freefile   If your employer could not collect all the social security and Medicare taxes, or railroad retirement taxes you owe on tips reported for 2013, the uncollected taxes will be shown in box 12 of your Form W-2 (codes A and B). Irs gov freefile You must report these amounts as additional tax on your return. Irs gov freefile   If you worked in the U. Irs gov freefile S. Irs gov freefile possessions and received Form W-2AS, Form W-2CM, Form W-2GU, or Form W-2VI, any uncollected taxes on tips will be shown in box 12 with codes A and B. Irs gov freefile If you received Form 499R-2/W-2PR, any uncollected taxes will be shown in boxes 22 and 23. Irs gov freefile Unlike the uncollected portion of the regular (1. Irs gov freefile 45%) Medicare tax, the uncollected Additional Medicare Tax is not reported on Form W-2. Irs gov freefile   To report these uncollected taxes, you must file a return even if you would not otherwise have to file. Irs gov freefile You can report these taxes on Form 1040, in the space next to line 60; Form 1040NR, line 59; Form 1040-SS, Part I, line 6; or Form 1040-PR, Part I, line 6. Irs gov freefile See the instructions for the appropriate form and line number indicated, and Form 8959. Irs gov freefile (You cannot file Form 1040A, Form 1040EZ, or Form 1040NR-EZ. Irs gov freefile ) Self-employed persons. Irs gov freefile    If you receive tips as a self-employed person, you should report these tips as income on Schedule C or C-EZ. Irs gov freefile See Publication 334, Tax Guide for Small Business, for more information on reporting business income. Irs gov freefile Allocated Tips If your employer allocated tips to you, they are shown separately in box 8 of your Form W-2. Irs gov freefile They are not included in box 1 with your wages and reported tips. Irs gov freefile If box 8 is blank, this discussion does not apply to you. Irs gov freefile What are allocated tips. Irs gov freefile   These are tips that your employer assigned to you in addition to the tips you reported to your employer for the year. Irs gov freefile Your employer will have done this only if: You worked in an establishment (restaurant, cocktail lounge, or similar business) that must allocate tips to employees, and The tips you reported to your employer were less than your share of 8% of food and drink sales. Irs gov freefile No income, social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes are withheld on allocated tips. Irs gov freefile How were your allocated tips figured. Irs gov freefile   The tips allocated to you are your share of an amount figured by subtracting the reported tips of all employees from 8% (or an approved lower rate) of food and drink sales (other than carryout sales and sales with a service charge of 10% or more). Irs gov freefile Your share of that amount was figured using either a method provided by an employer-employee agreement or a method provided by IRS regulations based on employees' sales or hours worked. Irs gov freefile For information about the exact allocation method used, ask your employer. Irs gov freefile Must you report your allocated tips on your tax return. Irs gov freefile   You must report tips you received in 2013 (including both cash and noncash tips) on your tax return as explained in What tips to report , earlier. Irs gov freefile Any tips you reported to your employer in 2013 as required (explained under Reporting Tips to Your Employer , earlier) are included in the wages shown in box 1 of your Form W-2. Irs gov freefile Add to the amount in box 1 only the tips you did not report to your employer as required. Irs gov freefile This should include any allocated tips shown in box 8 on your Form(s) W-2, unless you have adequate records to show that you received less tips in the year than the allocated amount. Irs gov freefile   See What tips to report under Reporting Tips on Your Tax Return, and Keeping a Daily Tip Record , earlier. Irs gov freefile How to report allocated tips. Irs gov freefile   If you received any tips in 2013 that you did not report to your employer as required (including allocated tips that you are required to report on your tax return), add these tips to the amount in box 1 of your Form(s) W-2 and report this amount as wages on Form 1040, line 7; Form 1040NR, line 8; or Form 1040NR-EZ, line 3. Irs gov freefile (You cannot file Form 1040A or Form 1040EZ). Irs gov freefile    Because social security, Medicare, or Additional Medicare taxes were not withheld from the allocated tips, you must report those taxes as additional tax on your return. Irs gov freefile Complete Form 4137 and include the allocated tips on line 1 of the form as provided in its instructions. Irs gov freefile See Reporting social security, Medicare, Additional Medicare, or railroad retirement taxes on tips not reported to your employer under Reporting Tips on Your Tax Return, earlier. Irs gov freefile How to request an approved lower rate. Irs gov freefile   Your employer can use a tip rate lower than 8% (but not lower than 2%) to figure allocated tips only if the IRS approves the lower rate. Irs gov freefile Either the employer or the employees can request approval of a lower rate by filing a petition with the IRS. Irs gov freefile The petition must include specific information about the establishment that will justify the lower rate. Irs gov freefile A user fee must be paid with the petition. Irs gov freefile    An employee petition can be filed only with the consent of a majority of the directly tipped employees (waiters, bartenders, and others who receive tips directly from customers). Irs gov freefile The petition must state the total number of directly tipped employees and the number of employees consenting to the petition. Irs gov freefile Employees filing the petition must promptly notify the employer, and the employer must promptly give the IRS a copy of all Forms 8027, Employer's Annual Information Return of Tip Income and Allocated Tips, filed for the establishment for the previous 3 years. Irs gov freefile   For more information about how to file a petition and what information to include, see Allocation of Tips in the Instructions for Form 8027.
