The Internal Revenue Service and the Treasury Department issued proposed regulations Wednesday to update the income tax withholding rules for periodic retirement and annuity payments made after Dec. 31, 2020.
Income Tax Withholding For Retirement and Annuity Payments
Before the provisions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the amount to be withheld from the payments of the taxpayer was determined by treating him/her as a married individual claiming three withholding exemptions. This withholding rule was used to be considered if no withholding certificate was in effect for a taxpayer’s periodic payments.
IRS New Regulations on Income Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
This rule is modified by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) to provide an amendment. According to the new provision of TCJA, the rate of withholding on periodic payments would instead be determined under rules prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury, when no withholding certificate is in effect.
IRS New Regulations on Income Tax for Retirement
The IRS provides New Regulations on Income Tax for retirement and annuity payments in In Notice 2020-03 for the year 2020. The details state that the default rate of withholding on periodic payments will continue to be based on treating the taxpayer as a married individual claiming three withholding allowances when no withholding certificate is in effect.
IRS New Regulations on Income Tax Under 2021
Under the proposed regulation for 2021 and future calendar years after it, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the U.S. Department of the Treasury will provide the rules along with complete procedures for determination of the default rate of withholding on periodic payments when a taxpayer has no withholding certificate in effect in applicable forms, instructions, publications, and other related guidance.
