Application For Common Paymaster R.04/14Application For Common Paymaster RTS-70 R. 04/14 Page 1 TC Rule 73B-10.037 Florida Administrative Code Effective Date 11/14 A common paymaster is any member of a group of related corporations/limited liability companies (LLCs) treated as corporations for federal income tax purposes that disburses wages to concurrent employees on behalf of the group. To qualify as a group for reporting under a common paymaster: • All entities must be corporations/LLCs. • All corporations/LLCs must be employers. • All corporations/LLCs must be related. • There must be concurrent employment between the proposed common paymaster and all the related corporations/ LLCs. Note: An agreement between corporations/LLCs, where one corporation/LLC agrees to consolidate the payroll of the group for reemployment tax (formerly unemployment tax) purposes, does not qualify the group for common paymaster. That is considered payrolling and is not allowed in Florida. Concurrent employment is defined as “the existence of simultaneous employment relationships between an individual and related corporations” under section 443.1216(1)(d)2, Florida Statutes, and is subject to verification. Attach a copy of the Employer’s Quarterly Report (RT-6, formerly UCT-6), most recently filed, for each company/LLC, showing wages for all concurrent employees. If concurrent employment recently began, and wages were not included on a prior report, you must also complete and attach an Affidavit of Concurrent Employment (RTS-72, formerly UCS-72). This form can be downloaded at www.floridarevenue.com/Pages/forms_index.aspx.

Reemployment Tax Account Number Legal name of corporation or LLC: – – – – Note: • The common paymaster status must be approved by the Department before you can begin reporting as a common paymaster. • Once approved, the effective date of the common paymaster status begins the first day of the quarter, following the date of the Department’s approval letter. • Common paymaster status cannot be made effective retroactively. • Common paymaster status cannot be approved retroactively. • All members of the group will be responsible for filing their own Employer’s Quarterly Report (RT-6, formerly UCT-6) for the quarter prior to the effective date. • Reporting as a common paymaster limits the amount of wages subject to reemployment tax to the current year taxable wage base of the combined wages for concurrent employees. Quarterly reports still need to be filed for each corporation/LLC to report any non-concurrent employees. • Each corporation/LLC must reimburse the common paymaster for the wages and payroll taxes paid on the corporation/LLC’s behalf. Each corporation/LLC must also record and expense the wages and payroll tax expenses on its own financial statements for federal income tax purposes. Being authorized to execute this application on behalf of the corporations/LLCs named, I confirm that the information provided is true and correct.

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.
