Helpful information for taxpayers on backup withholding

Taxpayers who receive certain types of income may have backup withholding deducted from these payments. Backup withholding can apply to most payments reported on certain Forms 1099 and W-2G.

Here are some facts to help taxpayers understand backup withholding.

Backup withholding is required on certain non-payroll amounts when certain conditions apply.

The payer making such payments to the payee doesn’t generally withhold taxes, and the payees report and pay taxes on this income when they file their federal tax returns. There are, however, situations when the payer is required to withhold a certain percentage of tax to make sure the IRS receives the tax due on this income.

Backup withholding is set at a specific percentage.

The current percentage is 24 percent.

Payments subject to backup withholding include:

• Interest payments
• Dividends
• Payment card and third-party network transactions
• Patronage dividends, but only if at least half the payment is in money
• Rents, profits or other gains
• Commissions, fees or other payments for work done as an independent contractor
• Payments by brokers
• Barter exchanges
• Payments by fishing boat operators, but only the part that is paid in actual money and that represents a share of the proceeds of the catch
• Royalty payments
• Gambling winnings, if not subject to gambling withholding
• Taxable grants
• Agriculture payments

Examples when the payer must deduct backup withholding:

• If a payee has not provided the payer a Taxpayer Identification Number.
– A TIN specifically identifies the payee.
– TINs include Social Security numbers, Employer Identification Numbers, Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers and Adoption Taxpayer Identification Numbers.

• If the IRS notified the payer that the payee provided an incorrect TIN; that is the TIN does not match the name in IRS records. Payees should make sure that the payer has their correct name and TIN to avoid backup withholding.

IRS extends Economic Impact Payment registration deadline for non-filers to Nov. 21

The deadline to register for an Economic Impact Payment using the Non-Filers tool is extended to November 21, 2020.

The IRS urges people who don’t typically file a tax return – and haven’t received an Economic Impact Payment – to register as quickly as possible using the Non-Filers: Enter Info Here tool on IRS.gov. The tool will not be available after November 21.

This additional time is solely for those who haven’t registered or received their EIP and don’t normally file a tax return. For taxpayers who requested an extension of time to file their 2019 tax return, that deadline is Thursday, October 15.

Most eligible U.S. taxpayers automatically received their Economic Impact Payment. Others who don’t have a filing obligation need to use the Non-Filers tool to register with the IRS to get up to $1,200. Typically, this includes people who receive little or no income.

The Non-Filers tool is secure. It is designed for people with incomes typically below $24,400 for married couples, and $12,200 for singles who could not be claimed as a dependent by someone else. This includes couples and individuals who are experiencing homelessness.

Anyone using the Non-Filers tool can speed up the arrival of their payment by choosing to receive it by direct deposit. Those not choosing this option will get a check.

Beginning two weeks after they register, people can track the status of their payment using the Get My Payment tool, available only on IRS.gov.

People experiencing homelessness may qualify for an Economic Impact Payment

People experiencing homelessness may be eligible for a $1,200 Economic Impact Payment and $500 for each qualifying child under age 17. To get this payment, they must register with the IRS by Saturday, Nov. 21, 2020.

If someone’s income is below $12,200, or $24,400 if they’re married, they probably don’t file a tax return. That means the IRS may not have enough information to issue their payment.

To get an Economic Impact Payment this year, these individuals need to register by Nov. 21. They do this by using the free Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here tool. It’s available in English and Spanish.

People who don’t normally file a tax return may be eligible for an EIP if they:
• Are a U.S. citizen, permanent resident or qualifying resident alien
• Have a work-eligible Social Security number
• Cannot be claimed as a dependent of another taxpayer

To use the tool, a person needs:
• Name, as it appears on Social Security card, for self and spouse, if they are eligible
• A work-eligible SSN for self and spouse, if they are eligible
• For each qualifying child, name, relationship and SSN or Adoption Tax Identification Number
• An email address to help create an account to use the Non-Filers tool
• A mailing address where they can receive the payment and a confirmation letter, which the IRS will mail within 15 days after issuing their payment
• Banking information, including routing and account numbers, if they want their payment by direct deposit
• An Identity Protection Personal Identification Number, if the IRS sent one in the past. If a person lost it, they can use the Get an IP PIN tool at IRS.gov to retrieve their number

The Non-Filers tool asks for a user’s license or state ID number to digitally sign the document. There are other ways to do this, so an ID is optional in the tool.

If someone wants their payment by direct deposit but doesn’t have a bank account, they can visit the FDIC website for help. The IRS will mail a payment to anyone who doesn’t give direct deposit information.

Other key points about Economic Impact Payments
• The IRS highly recommends the online Non-Filers tool for the fastest Economic Impact Payment.
• People who can’t access or use the tool should follow the steps in the Non-Filers tool section of the Economic Impact Payment FAQs. They should submit their information to the IRS by Nov. 21.
• If someone misses the Nov. 21 deadline, they can claim the payment as a credit on a 2020 federal income tax return next year.
• The payment is not taxable income and getting one does not affect eligibility for other benefits, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, unemployment benefits or other benefit programs.
• People can use the Get My Payment tool at IRS.gov within two weeks to check their payment status.
