December 2022 Individual Due Dates

December 1 - Time for Year-End Tax Planning

December is the month to take final actions that can affect your tax result for 2022. Taxpayers with substantial increases or decreases in income, changes in marital status or dependent status, and those who sold property during 2022 should call for a tax planning consultation appointment.

December 12 - Report Tips to Employer

If you are an employee who works for tips and received more than $20 in tips during November, you are required to report them to your employer on IRS Form 4070 no later than December 12. Your employer is required to withhold FICA taxes and income tax withholding for these tips from your regular wages. If your regular wages are insufficient to cover the FICA and tax withholding, the employer will report the amount of the uncollected withholding in box 12 of your W-2 for the year. You will be required to pay the uncollected withholding when your return for the year is filed.

You may delay your first distribution to April 1, 2023 if your birth date is during the period January 1, 1950 through December 31, 1950. If you are required to take a distribution in 2022 and the institution holding your IRA will not be open on December 31, you will need to arrange for withdrawal before that date.

December 31 - Last Day to Pay Deductible Expenses for 2022

Last day to pay deductible expenses for the 2022 return (doesn’t apply to IRA, SEP or Keogh contributions, all of which can be made after December 31, 2022).
