Tip reporting: What you need to know about filing IRS Form 8027 for 2017

As you tie up loose ends on your 2017 records in preparation for filing taxes, don’t forget about your tip-reporting paperwork.

Many large food and beverage operations are required to file an annual report of gross receipts and tips with the Internal Revenue Service, and for some, to allocate tips to certain employees for the 2017 calendar year.

Form 8027, the Employer’s Annual Information Return of Tip Income and Allocated Tips, for 2017 is due at the end of February 2018 for operators who file in paper format, and a month later for restaurateurs who file electronically.

The IRS uses this form to flag restaurants where tip income may have been underreported and where tips may have to be allocated. The IRS has also indicated in recent years that they’re on the lookout for businesses that are required to file the form but fail to do so.

As you assemble your records, here’s what you need to consider about Form 8027: > More…

2018 Tax Filing Season Begins Jan. 29, Tax Returns Due April 17; Help Available for Taxpayers


The Internal Revenue Service announced yesterday that the nation’s tax season will begin Monday, Jan. 29, 2018 and reminded taxpayers claiming certain tax credits that refunds won’t be available before late February.

The IRS will begin accepting tax returns on Jan. 29, with nearly 155 million individual tax returns expected to be filed in 2018. The nation’s tax deadline will be April 17 this year – so taxpayers will have two additional days to file beyond April 15.

Many software companies and tax professionals will be accepting tax returns before Jan. 29 and then will submit the returns when IRS systems open. Although the IRS will begin accepting both electronic and paper tax returns Jan. 29, paper returns will begin processing later in mid-February as system updates continue. The IRS strongly encourages people to file their tax returns electronically for faster refunds. > More…

Plan Ahead – 2017 Tax Season

Taxpayers can take steps to ensure smooth processing of their 2017 tax return next year. Here are three things taxpayers should know about the tax returns they will file next year.

1) It’s important to gather documents

The IRS urges all taxpayers to file a complete and accurate tax return by making sure they have all the needed documents before they file. This includes:

  • Forms W-2 from employers.
  • Forms 1099 from banks and other payers.
  • Forms 1095-A from the Marketplace for those claiming the Premium Tax Credit.

Typically, these forms start arriving by mail in January. Taxpayers should check them over carefully, and if any of the information shown is wrong, contact the payer right away for a correction.

2) Taxpayers with expiring ITINs should renew promptly

Some people with an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number may need to renew it before the end of the year to avoid a refund delay and possible loss of key tax benefits. These ITINs expire Dec. 31, 2017: > More…
