It seems like just a few weeks ago, we were all scrambling to get our taxes into the IRS – because, well, we were. Now it’s May, and there are some new tax due dates to be aware of.
May 2015 Individual Due Dates
May 11 – Report Tips to Employer
If you are an employee who works for tips and received more than $20 in tips during April, you are required to report them to your employer on IRS Form 4070 no later than May 11. Your employer is required to withhold FICA taxes and income tax withholding for these tips from your regular wages. If your regular wages are insufficient to cover the FICA and tax withholding, the employer will report the amount of the uncollected withholding in box 12 of your W-2 for the year. You will be required to pay the uncollected withholding when your return for the year is filed.
May 2015 Business Due Dates
May 11 – Social Security, Medicare and Withheld Income Tax
File Form 941 for the first quarter of 2015. This due date applies only if you deposited the tax for the quarter in full and on time.
May 15 – Employer’s Monthly Deposit Due
If you are an employer and the monthly deposit rules apply, May 15 is the due date for you to make your deposit of Social Security, Medicare and withheld income tax for April 2015. This is also the due date for the non-payroll withholding deposit for April 2015 if the monthly deposit rule applies.
