When starting a business, one key to success is to know about your federal tax obligations. You may need to know not only about income taxes but also payroll taxes.
There are four general types of business taxes:
1. Income tax - The federal income tax is a pay-as-you-go tax. You must pay the tax as you earn or receive income during the year.
An employee usually has income tax withheld from his or her pay. If you do not pay your tax through withholding, or do not
pay enough tax that way, you might have to pay estimated tax.
2. Self-employment tax - Self-employment tax (SE tax) is a social security and Medicare tax primarily for individuals who work
for themselves. Your payments of SE tax contribute to your coverage under the social security system. Social security coverage provides you with retirement benefits, disability benefits, survivor benefits, and hospital insurance (Medicare) benefits.
*Generally, you must pay SE tax and file Schedule SE (Form 1040) if either of the following applies.
- If your net earnings from self-employment were $400 or more.
- If you work for a church or a qualified church-controlled organization (other than as a minister or member of a religious order) that elected an exemption from social security and Medicare taxes, you are subject to SE tax if you receive $108.28 or more in wages from the church or organization.
3. Employment tax - As an employer you have certain employment tax responsibilities that you must pay and forms you must file. Employment taxes include the following:
- Social security and Medicare taxes
- Federal income tax withholding
- Federal unemployment (FUTA) tax
4. Excise tax - You may have to pay excise taxes if you do any of the following:
- Manufacture or sell certain products.
- Operate certain kinds of businesses.
- Use various kinds of equipment, facilities, or products.
- Receive payment for certain services.
*Must provide PRIOR year business tax returns.
