Who should complete Form 730?
To file Form 730, you must file electronically for all returns and statements, as well as for a certain number of tax-free transfers to a beneficiary, if you don't have a Social Security number. If you file Form 730 to pay an additional tax, a separate Form 730 is required. If you use the Form 730 to pay any tax and have a Social Security Number, you can pay your balance using a debit card. Do not send money to a tax preparer if you don't have a social security number. Instead, send your payment to a participating financial institution. How do I pay the tax on Form 730? If you file Form 730 to pay a tax liability, you must have a social security number. If you don't have a social security number, send Form 4506 to the IRS stating that you don't have one and stating the amount of the tax payment. You must follow the payment instructions. There is a limit to how much you can send each year to avoid a penalty on the payments. What do I do if I have more than one Form 730?
You can file two Forms 730 (or one Form 730 for an individual, a widow or widower, a surviving spouse, or other individual not filing a separate return). You can't choose to pay both taxes at the same time. To pay both taxes, file Forms 4506 or 4507 and send the completed forms to the IRS. For more information, see How to pay the tax on Form 730.

When do I need to complete Form 730?
You would normally need to complete Form 730 if you:
Are an employee who received cash back on the sale of qualifying goods or services in the calendar quarter that includes April 1.
Had taxable goods or services delivered or received under the terms and conditions in the calendar quarter that includes April 1.
Did not apply for a Form 730 during the calendar quarter that includes April 1.
Is an employee who received cash back on the sale of eligible business property in the calendar quarter that includes April 1.
If the taxable sale of eligible business property in the calendar quarter that includes April 1 included goods or services that were not taxable in the prior calendar quarters, you can only use Form 730 to obtain tax information that you otherwise would be required to file a return. To report a taxable sale of eligible business property, you generally need to complete Form 8379.
You can use Form 8379 during the calendar quarters that you need to file a Form 730. However, the return you file may be delayed. See Non-filing for more information.
If you are an employee who received an ineligible benefit in the calendar quarter that includes April 1, you generally need to complete Form 730 and a Form 8379 to obtain tax information that you otherwise would be required to file a return.
Do I need to complete both Form 8379 and Form 730?
If you completed both Forms 8379 for non-filing, the IRS treats them both as “one return.” The IRS will use Form 8379 in its review of the non-filing return. However, if you choose to submit the Form 8379 separately, it is not considered a new Form 8379. (See Forms 8379 for information only on the filing of Forms 8379 by an eligible small business.)
What is a “non-filing,” and when is it necessary?
A non-filing is an activity by an employee that is not a violation of the Federal Election Campaign Act, the Hatch Act, the Ethics in Government Act, or the Small Business Act. This activity must be properly disclosed on a Form 8379 and on any other return required by law, including Forms 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ, 1040NR, 1065, 5498, 5498A, 5498F, or 5498IR.

How do I get my Form 730?
The IRS has two ways to accept paper Forms 730:
If a Form 730 is received from a foreign country and an appropriate amount of withholding was already applied to the wages for foreign taxes, the IRS applies the full amount of the withholding tax, up to the amount withheld. No further tax will be withheld.
If a Form 730 is received from a foreign country and the withholding tax previously applied to the wages is not refundable or does not cover the tax the employee owes, the IRS, in order to reduce or eliminate the amount of withholding taxes previously applied to such wages, applies the amount of the tax to the wages, not the amount withheld.
If you are making adjustments to determine whether an employee is subject to foreign tax withholding, you will not be allowed to use a Form 730 as a method of determining the withholding requirement. Instead, the IRS will take a position on whether to apply withholding in this situation based on the amount of information available to it. If information available to the IRS does not suggest a withholding should be required, the IRS will allow a taxpayer to use Forms 730 in this situation. (Form 1557 and Form 5329, though, will still be required for tax purposes.)
For instructions on using the forms provided by the IRS, download the Form 730 Instructions from the following website:
You may also be eligible for your Form 730 if you have an F-4 visa and have filed Form W-4 and the information that the Form 730 is reporting was already provided you by the INS.
Are certain employees exempt from foreign tax withholding?
Certain employees are exempt from withholding income tax for their foreign income. If you have more than one exempt employee, you must divide your exempt employees by the total number of employees and determine the one having the lowest amount of withholding on their foreign income. The IRS is also now able to withhold the amounts on a Form 8310 that you provide them.
What are the requirements to file a federal Form 730?
You may file the Form 730 using either a computer or paper program (it must be a paper Form 730). For the Forms 730 to arrive by mail (and be processed within 6 weeks, you will only need to file a single Form 730, so you should try filing it by check and mailing payment within the same month in which you expect the Form 730 to go out).
What documents do I need to attach to my Form 730?
Please attach a copy of your Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, from the first job you worked during the 12-month period ending with the day of the filing. Be sure to include your Social Security number and the year on which you made your income. Also attach Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, from your most recent job, if you have one. A copy dated within the past 12 months may be adequate.
Why is the return date for Form 730 sometimes different from the due date for filing an income tax return, or for requesting an extension of time to file?
The return and payment due date is the date you are due to file a federal tax return (Form 1040). However, if you have requested a refund, the refund due date is the date you are due to file a federal tax refund (Form 1040A). The return and payment due date in your request for an extension of time to file is the date you will be granted the extension of time to file.
When is the IRS allowed to issue a return?
The IRS normally issues a return on or after the 10th day of the month in which the return was filed.
If you are filing electronically, and we have a problem with your return, may I cancel it?
You may cancel any form electronically on IRS.gov or in writing to the address listed on the IRS website. We will mail a written notice if you make a valid request to cancel it.
What is my filing status?
We use the code “J” to file your return if you are single, Head of Household, Married Filing Jointly, Head of Household Filing Separately, Qualifying Widow or Widower, Qualifying Veteran, or Qualifying Senior Citizen.
If you are filing an extension of time to file Form 730 when we have already filed your return, do you get a refund now or later?
If you are filing for a refund, we check the IRS database of refund claims every week to verify your claim. If we later learn that you did not make a claim on your return, you will be given the option to request the return. You do not need to file and pay the tax again if your refund claim is denied. If you are filing for an extension of time to file, you must complete and submit Form 1040X.
What are the different types of Form 730?
Each Form 730 is different in detail, depending on the circumstances and circumstances in which they were filed. Some Form 730s are filed by the taxpayer or the taxpayer's representative, but for all other Form 730s, it is the U.S. Treasury's responsibility to collect, collect only, and collect only. It is the position of the U.S. Department of Finance that Form 730s not be collected. Further, some Form 730s are filed by the IRS or by one of the taxpayers named on the taxpayer's return.
These are the three different types of Form 730:
This document can be used by a person, or some entities, who believe that he or she is no longer a U.S. citizen or resident. As a consequence, one may request an opinion from the Department on the U.S. immigration status of the person filing the Form 736.
Form 732. If the taxpayer is requesting an opinion concerning his or her U.S. immigration status, it is called Form 732 because this is the most commonly issued Form 732, and it is a self-certification. If the taxpayer has applied for a Social Security Number (SSN) and has a U.S. passport and a green card, this is called Form I-797; if the taxpayer is not eligible for a Social Security Number (SSN), Form 733 can be used. If the taxpayer has a Form I-9, Form I-797 is used. If the taxpayer's spouse is a nonimmigrant (foreign resident alien) and requesting an opinion concerning her U.S. immigration status, the Form 736 should be filed by the taxpayer on behalf of the nonimmigrant spouse. Form 712 is also a self-certification. Form 710 is used by a person who wishes to receive an explanation of the IRS interpretation of various tax provisions or claims asserted by the taxpayer. 2.
The Form 731 must be used by an employee who, under the terms of an order of the Secretary of Labor, is employed (or designated as an employee) in the United States. See Regulations sections 3101.1007; 3101.924. 2. Form 742.
How many people fill out Form 730 each year?
The IRS estimates that nearly 500,000 households filed a Form 730 for 2015.
Are those households eligible for the exclusion?
Yes. Form 730 allows your household to claim a tax credit for medical expenses of up to 6,750, or up to 10,800 if you have medical expenses that exceed 10,000 for an individual or 24,000, or 48,000, or 64,000 for a married filing jointly.
What happens if I am eligible for only a partial exclusion?
If you have income below the threshold for the full amount of the tax credit, you could receive no tax credits. You can see a full breakdown of your potential tax impacts using the IRS calculator below:
See What Are My Tax Receipts for More Details
Which medical items I can claim on my Form 730?
You are allowed to use Form 730 to claim expenses related to medical expenses other than those related to childbirth and to expenses related to the diagnosis of serious or chronic medical conditions (unless the expenses are covered under Medicare or Medicaid).
Can I use this deduction if my medical expenses exceed 10,000?
No, for the full exclusion, your medical expenses must exceed the threshold amount.
I do not have medical expenses, but I do have prescription and other drug expenses for my pet. Can I still claim the deduction from Form 730?
You cannot claim medical expenses if your pet is listed as an attendant and all or part of the expenses are for the pet. This includes the cost of:
Veterinary bills, if necessary
Furniture and supplies;
Hospitalization and long-term care bills, if necessary
Fees paid for treatment by a trained medical professional (unless the expenses were paid for out-of-pocket by a hospital or other healthcare professional, such as a certified nurse or paramedic)
Routine and ongoing preventative care
Fees, premiums, and costs for treatment for chronic or serious medical conditions
Are there any limitations to when I can claim the deduction?
You may not claim the deduction if you use Form 730 to claim medical expenses for another family member. For example, if your brother-in-law dies, and you claim his medical expenses on your Form 730, you can't claim any additional medical expenses under the exclusion for your family or household.
Is there a due date for Form 730?
A. Yes, the due date is March 11, 2018.
Q. What happens when I file a Form 730?
A. If your liability amount is less than 3,000, you must pay a 1,000 penalty by March 11, 2018. If your liability amounts to more than 3,000, you must pay the 1,000 penalties plus a 2,000 civil penalties per violation until the full amount of your liability is paid. If you do not pay this penalty. The IRS will start to collect the 2,000 civil penalties. If you have more than one tax violation at the same time. The IRS may also begin to collect as a group penalty. A penalty of 2,000 per violation could be collected on behalf of more than one taxpayer. See Taxpayer and the IRS: Penalty in Chapter 3.
Q. What happens to a Form 730 filed by a business under section 501(c)(3) if it does not comply with the registration and reporting requirements?
A. In the case of a business, the failure to file Form 730 will cause the business to be treated as a partnership for purposes of section 513 of the Internal Revenue Code.
Q. For the tax-year in which filing a Form 730 occurs, will the penalty equal the amount of penalties due to the business prior to the return being filed?
A. No, the penalty of 2,000 per violation is not based on the amount of any past penalties due the business. Instead, the penalty of 2,000 per violation is assessed on behalf of all the taxpayers who filed their 2016 tax returns on or after March 1, 2016, and for whom the IRS has determined that the liability for liability (see below) is more than 3,000.
Q. Where can I find out more about the penalty for liability (see Question 27) and the maximum liability penalty for a single violation?
A. To find out more about the penalty for liability (see Question 27), see the IRM section 10.13.33.
Q. I am a taxpayer who filed a Form 730 to report a liability of 3,000 (10,000 for a partnership), but I believe the liability is actually 5,000. What does the penalty amount to be imposed on me be?
