July 12 - Report Tips to Employer

If you are an employee who works for tips and received more than $20 in tips during June, you are required to report them to your employer on IRS Form 4070 no later than July 12. Your employer is required to withhold FICA taxes and income tax withholding for these tips from your regular wages. Suppose your regular wages are insufficient to cover the FICA and tax withholding. In that case, the employer will report the amount of uncollected withholding in box 12 of your W-2 for the year. You will be required to pay the uncollected withholding when your return is filed for the year.
