If you are an employer within the meaning of code section 3401 (d)(1) or (d)(2) and the related regulations, do not use Form 4219 to report income tax withholding. Internal Revenue Code—Section 3505(a) provides that if a lender, surety, or other person pays wages directly to employees of another employer, or to an agent of such employees, the lender, surety, or other person is liable for payment to the United States of a sum equal to the following taxes (and interest) required to be withheld from such wages by the other employer: (a) FICA tax required to be withheld under section 3102; (b) Railroad retirement tax required to be withheld under section 3202; and (c) Income tax required to be withheld under section 3402. Section 3505(b) provides that if a lender, surety, or other person supplies funds to or for the account of another employer for the specific purpose of paying wages of the employees of the other employer, with actual notice or knowledge that the employer does not intend, or will not be able, to make timely payment or deposit of the above taxes required to be withheld by the employer, the lender, surety, or other person is liable for payment to the United States of a sum equal to the taxes, plus any interest, that are not paid by the employer. However, the liability under section 3505(b) cannot exceed 25% of the amount supplied specifically for the purpose of paying of wages. Section 3505(b) does not apply to ordinary working capital loans to employers, even though it is known that part of the funds advanced will be used to pay wages. For purposes of section 3505(b), an organization is deemed to have actual notice or knowledge of any fact relating to a transaction from the time that fact is brought to the attention of the individual conducting the transaction, and in any event from the time that fact would have been brought to the individual's attention if the organization had exercised due diligence, as defined in Code section 6323(i)(1). The liability under section 3505 does not extend to the portion of the employer's taxes imposed under the Federal Insurance Contributions Act or the Railroad Retirement Tax Act. Under Section 3505, the employer remains liable for withholding taxes not paid by the lender, surety, or other person, and is required to file an employment tax return for such wages paid by the employer, a lender, surety, or other person, and furnish statements to employees of taxes withheld. Separate Form 4219 for each employer and each calendar quarter— A separate Form 4219 should be submitted, in duplicate, for each employer and for each calendar quarter for which liability under section 3505 is incurred. Where to file—File Form 4219 with the office of the Internal Revenue Service where the employer for whom wages were paid or funds were supplied files Federal employment tax returns. Payment—Include with each Form 4219 a remittance (check or money order) for the amount shown in item 23, payable to the United States Treasury. Payment of the withholding taxes shown on Form 4219 by either the employer or the lender, surety, or other person satisfies the liability. If neither the employer nor the lender, surety, or other person pays these taxes, the U.S. Government may collect the unpaid amount by appropriate civil action. To avoid the accumulation of interest, make the payment on or before the due date of the employer's (borrower's) Federal employment tax return. Specific Instructions Item 4. Enter the last day of the calendar quarter during which the wages were actually paid to the employees of another employer. If funds were supplied to the employer for payment of wages, show the last day of the calendar quarter during which the wages were actually paid by the employer. Item 9. Enter in items 9a, b, and c the amounts of employee taxes required to be withheld as if the wages were paid by the employer. Item 14. Enter in items 14a, b, and c the amounts of employee taxes required to be withheld by the employer from wages paid during this quarter with funds supplied for that specific purpose. Item 22. If the liability is paid after the due dates of the employer's Federal employment tax return, interest will be charged at the annual rate established under Internal Revenue Code section 6621(a) subject to adjustments as provided in section 6621(b). Item 13. Enter the gross amount (without reduction for withholding taxes) supplied to the employer for the specific purpose of paying wages which were actually paid during this quarter.
