Reemployment Tax Instructions for Excess Wage Computation R.12/15Reemployment Tax Instructions for Excess Wage Computation RT-89 R. 12/15 TC Rule 73B-10.037 Florida Administrative Code Effective Date 12/15 This information is provided for use in computing excess wages. It is intended to assist employers in the correct reporting of wages on the Employer’s Quarterly Report (RT-6, formerly UCT-6). An Employer’s Quarterly Report must be filed even when all wages are excess and no tax is due. • For calendar years 2015 and forward, Taxable Wages are the first $7,000 paid to each covered employee during the calendar year. Ø For calendar years 2012 through 2014, taxable wages are $8,000 per covered employee. Ø For calendar years 2011 and before, taxable wages are $7,000 per covered employee. • Excess Wages are wages paid over $7,000 to an employee during the calendar year. Excess wages are not taxable wages. • Only the first $7,000 paid to an employee by the same employer in a calendar year is taxable. Taxable wages reported to another state by the same employer within the same calendar year should be included in determining the excess wage base for the employer. Report year-to-date, out-of-state taxable wages on the Employers Quarterly Report for Out-of-State Wages (RT-6NF, formerly UCT-6NF). • If you are a legal successor, the wages paid by your predecessor during the calendar year should be included in determining excess wages. • Wages must be reported on the Employer’s Quarterly Report (RT-6) in the quarter paid. • The sum of all amounts exceeding $7,000 per employee (excess wages) is entered on Line 3 of the tax report. This sum can never be larger than the gross wages (Line 2). The example on the reverse side shows a sample payroll with the employees’ wages and how to report them for a calendar year.

About the Corporate Income Tax
The IRS and most states require corporations to file an income tax return, with the exact filing requirements depending on the type of company.
Sole proprietorships or disregarded entities like LLCs are filed on Schedule C (or the state equivalent) of the owner's personal income tax return, flow-through entities like S Corporations or Partnerships are generally required to file an informational return equivilent to the IRS Form 1120S or Form 1065, and full corporations must file the equivalent of federal Form 1120 (and, unlike flow-through corporations, are often subject to a corporate tax liability).
Additional forms are available for a wide variety of specific entities and transactions including fiduciaries, nonprofits, and companies involved in other specific types of business.
