945

Annual Return of Withheld Federal Income Tax

Why do I file Form 945?

Use Form 945 to report federal income tax withheld (or required to be withheld) from nonpayroll payments. Nonpayroll payments include:

  • Pensions (including distributions from tax-favored retirement plans, for example, section 401(k), section 403(b), and governmental section 457(b) plans), annuities, and IRA distributions;
  • Military retirement;
  • Gambling winnings;
  • Indian gaming profits;
  • Certain government payments on which the recipient elected voluntary income tax withholding;
  • Dividends and other distributions by an Alaska Native Corporation (ANC) on which the recipient elected voluntary income tax withholding; and
  • Payments subject to backup withholding.

Who needs to file Form 945?
If you withhold or are required to withhold federal income tax (including backup withholding) from nonpayroll payments, you must file Form 945. See Purpose of Form 945, earlier. You don't have to file Form 945 for those years in which you don't have a nonpayroll tax liability. Don't report on Form 945 withholding that is required to be reported on Form 1042, Annual Withholding Tax Return for U.S. Source Income of Foreign Persons.

If you file Form 945, you may also be required to file Form 945-A, Annual Record of Federal Tax Liability. See the line 7 instructions for details.
