What is the purpose of Form 1120-W?
By law, your employer must use the “W” letter in the address in your Form W-2 for all taxes you paid on these types of payments (payroll taxes, social security taxes, Medicare taxes, unemployment taxes, and self-employment taxes). If a Form W-2 doesn't contain a W, your form is issued electronically.
Can I use Form W-2 for a job which pays more than 600?
For most employees, the minimum amount to report on Form W-2 is 600. However, the maximum amount to report depends on the type of job and your state's tax law. It is not possible to make an adjustment to your tax and withholding to reflect job income greater than the amount shown on Form W-2. Only for certain states are you allowed to make such an adjustment.
What if I have to pay tax withholding on my Form W-2 rather than the actual tax due?
When your employer sends you the Form W-2, it is possible that your wages are subject to tax withholding. For example, your Form W-2 could say, “Amount not paid” or “Tax withheld.” It is unlikely that you will have to pay the tax, so you can save money by sending your tax information by electronic payment.
Will there be a difference in tax when I file electronically vs. in-person?
No, if you use your regular pay method, you will pay most of your taxes when you file your return. The small difference in filing procedure can be important, so consider it carefully if you have questions about the filing procedure.
Is there a penalty for failing to include all the information on my return?
There is no penalty if you can't certify your return by its due date. You can choose a method of filing return that is easier (you don't have to print it) but still certifies your return.
I have had to make various adjustments to my return based on the new information. Where do I file these adjustments?
Many taxpayers who file electronically have to fix the correct tax on a Form 1040X or other return. These are errors that have arisen because of changes that the IRS has made. To fix these errors, you have the options of filing your return by paper or by electronic filing.
Who should complete Form 1120-W?
The most common reasons an employer might wish to complete Form 1120-W are to:
Submit Form 1120-W for the pay and vacation of new employees
Obtain a copy of a new employee's Form 1120-W to file with the Social Security Administration to establish a new employee's eligibility for Social Security retirement benefits
Obtain a new employee's Form 1120-W to replace a previously submitted Form 1120-W
Obtain an amended wage statement
Submit Form 1120-W when an employee transfers
Provide a copy of Form 1120-W when submitting an employee's remittance for a remittance voucher
File a return of estimated wage
File Form 1310S
Complete the Form 1120-W Instructions and return the completed Form 1120-W with the completed Instructions.
What is a W-2?
Workers will receive Form 1099 for Form 1120-W submitted with their wages. All wages reported on Form 1120-W must be reported on the Form 1099 and the W-2.
What is a W-4 Employee's Wage Statement?
An employee's remittance for a remittance voucher must be reported according to the Instructions and on Form 10003 or 1098. The W-4 includes the following information:
The employer's name and Social Security number.
The payment due date.
The amount received by the employer.
The pay period and pay amount.
The number of shares received.
The number of calendar days in the pay period.
The worker's workweek (days worked).
The number of days worked by the worker.
The number of days of pay at the beginning and end of the week.
The pay period ending date.
Example: An entry in the W-4 indicating that you gave a wage statement to the Secretary for filing would include, on the remittance voucher and in the payment due date:
Your name and employer's business address.
The amount you received for each paycheck during the entire year.
The pay period ending date.
The employer's name and social security number.
The payment due date.
The amount received for each paycheck during the entire year.
The pay period ending date.
When do I need to complete Form 1120-W?
Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLEA), no employees are entitled to minimum wage if they do not complete any work under the following conditions. (You can learn about which exceptions apply to your case on our page on “How Long You Need to Wait.” Also see Frequently Asked Questions.)
When the employee works less than 15 hours in a work week; or works less than eight hours in a work day
When working more than 20 hours in a work week
When working more than eight hours in a work day
Employers may use an administrative review system -- such as an employee-friendly computerized system -- to determine when employees begin and stop working. In this system, the employee and employer agree on when the employee's “time off” should be used.
When the employee completes more than eight hours of work in a work week
When employees work more than 8 hours in a work day, and each hour is covered by a minimum wage order, they must complete Form 1120-W.
Workers are exempt from the federal wage provisions if they are regularly employed, and their hours of employment include no more than four hours of overtime or any additional workweek of 30 or more hours (even if the employee has more than four hours of overtime in a workweek). This rule only applies during regular work hours. It does not apply to the employer who is not providing the benefits of a regular work week. For example, a janitor who is assigned one shift four times a week has four overtime hours of work in a workday. While the employer is not required (nor does it have to provide) a regular workweek, the employee is entitled to only one “workweek of 30 or more hours.”
When employers provide paid holiday leave or other leave to employees
If an employee is assigned to work less than 16 hours in a workweek, but has work during an unpaid holiday or other time off, and is still working more than eight hours in a workday, they are entitled to receive the full federal minimum wage. The employer must pay the employee for hours worked after the holiday or to the employee on the last regular business day before the holiday.
When are my employees entitled to overtime pay?
Each worker for whom the FLEA requires a minimum wage rate must be paid for all hours worked beyond the employee's scheduled pay time (called the “exceeds” number).

I recently received a Form 1110-W. Is it safe to use my Form 1102-W?
What documents do I need to attach to my Form 1120-W?
If you want to show us proof that you have been legally employed in the United States for at least 12 months, we will require all the following documents:
A copy of your employer's tax return for the year. If you do not have an employer's tax return, we will require your most recent pay stub or pay stub from the last year.
A copy of your bank statement/bills for the year (with copies of any receipts on file).
For some individuals with U.S. citizenship or permanent residency, the Social Security Administration will be able to determine whether you are legally employed in the U.S. if this is confirmed through information recorded on your account.
For most individuals with a legal temporary resident visa, if the Social Security Administration receives your immigration status statement from DHS, that statement will prove that the individual has the legal authority to work while on a visitor, working, or resident visa and is legally authorized for the period or periods set out on that status statement. You should contact your local Social Security office, if one has been established, to obtain this statement, and we will provide you with a copy of the document when you submit your Form 1120-W.
A U.S. passport or other government-issued photo identification.
A copy of your tax bill or other documentation of your income. This could include your pay stubs or pay stubs or other evidence of your income. For a Form 1098-T (TIN) we need a copy of the last page, but not the first page.
Are there any penalties if I do not submit a Form 1120-W with my tax return?
Yes, there are some penalties if you do not submit your Form 1120-W with your tax return. If you do not submit the document with your tax return, you will not be able to have any of your tax year financial information reported and the IRS will not be able to provide a copy of your tax return to the Department of Homeland Security. Additionally, the Department of Homeland Security does not have access to your tax information in response to DHS' request for information, even if the immigration status or immigration status of your employer is clear.
What are the different types of Form 1120-W?
The form 1120 is used by certain employers (such as small businesses or sole proprietors) to apply for the Employer Identification Number. If you work for one of these employers, and they apply for an Employer Identification Number on your behalf, they will need to send you a Form 1120-W to provide documentation proving that you actually worked for the employer.
Once you receive a Form 1120-W from the employer you work for, fill it out. It has three parts:
1. Date. The date the employer filed the Form 1120-W.
2. Name and address of employer.
3. Employer Identification Number — EIN number.
For more information, go to Employer Identification Numbers.
This information also appears on the employer tax forms you receive as you start or stop job searching. The IRS uses the EIN number on these forms. Keep these forms and documentation for five years, then use them to file your 2013 tax return. You can get these forms at IRS.gov or by calling 800-TAX-FORM).
How Can I Find the EIN of a Person I Know?
If you meet the qualifications for a Form 1120-W reporting employment, you may ask the person who filed Form 1120-W for it.
Most businesses use an EIN on a Form W-2. If the person who filed the Form W-2 didn't file Form 1120-W with you, the business likely has an EIN on a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) certificate. The TIN's name is listed on the certificate. If you get a copy of your business records, you'll usually find the TIN on the business's books. You'll know the person who filed the Form 1120-W had the EIN.
Most individuals cannot get a Form 1120-W form using the procedures required by IRC Section 1018. You cannot give a Form 1120-W to anyone who isn't allowed to have one. This includes the employer. There's no way to ask a friend or family member to send you Form 1120-W for a friend or family member.
Can I Get a Copy of an Employee's Form 1120-W?
You can get a copy of form 1120-W by contacting the employer and asking for it.
How many people fill out Form 1120-W each year?
There is only one approved Form 1120-W for 2016.
How do I receive a Form 1120-W form for 2016?

In addition, at least one of the following is required:
The form must include details of the facts and circumstances for establishing that you are present in the U.S. to be a member of the U.S. armed forces (if you qualify for military exemption) or an officer or employee of an executive department of the United States (if you qualify for other exemption) or serving in a foreign diplomatic mission of the U.S. (if you qualify for exemption from foreign government employee requirements).
Is there a due date for Form 1120-W?
A form 1120-W may be submitted by mail, fax, or via electronic mail and by mail only if the employer's request is received before January 15, 2002. The due date for Form 1120-W is determined by the due date specified on the form. In the case of an application or other document submitted prior to January 15, 2002, the due date for Form 1120-W may be extended by the due date of the last amended return, if the employer has made any amended returns during the year.
If a Form 1120-W is required because of a failure on the part of a federal government agency to file a timely return, the following penalty will be assessed on the employer (to the extent the applicable penalty does not already apply in the circumstance):
Any employer who fails to complete and deliver an election by February 14, 2003, will be subject to a penalty on top of the penalties under other sections of this Part, which are to be assessed on the employers listed in paragraph (a)(3)(ii) of this section under sections 301.631 and 307.631 of the Code.
If a Form 1120-W is required because of a failure on the part of a federal government agency to file a timely return and the employer's request is received by the IRS before February 14, 2003, the IRS will determine the due date of its return and assess that penalty on the employer, to the extent the applicable penalty does not already apply in the circumstance.
I filed Form 1120W, but was told it was too late for me to file. Does this mean all employers are to automatically be subject to the 2-month return filing penalty?
No, except when a return on which penalties are assessed by the IRS before February 14, 2003, and no other return is timely filed on or before February 14, 2003, the penalties on which the employer had to pay are to be assessed on employers for which the IRS received no timely returns to the tax year.
How will the penalty on Form 1120-W be assessed?
The penalty on Form 1120-W may be assessed when it is filed, at the time notice of the penalty is mailed, or within 20 days of the date of the initial request for the form by the employer.
