II. Income Tax Withholding
Wages: North Carolina law requires withholding of income tax from salaries and wages of all residents regardless of where earned and from wages of
nonresidents for personal services performed in this State. The tax must be withheld from each payment of wages, and is considered to be held in trust
until it is paid to the Department of Revenue. Due date requirements for reporting and paying the tax depend on the amount of tax withheld each month.
Employers withholding less than $250 per month report and pay quarterly. Employers who, on average, withhold at least $250 but less than $2,000 per
month report and pay monthly. Employers who, on average, withhold $2,000 or more per month make payments on the dates federal deposits are required
and file quarterly reports.
Pension Payments: If you are required to withhold federal tax under section 3405 of the Internal Revenue Code on a pension payment to a N.C. resident,
you must also withhold State income tax unless the recipient elects no withholding. You must withhold on periodic payments as if the recipient is a single
individual with no withholding allowances unless the recipient provides an allowance certificate (Form NC-4P) reflecting a different filing status or number
of allowances. For nonperiodic distributions, 4% of the tax must be withheld. Reporting and Paying Pension Withholding:
If you already have a
wage withholding identification number, you can report and pay the pension withholding with your wage withholding or you may choose to report and pay
the withholding tax separately. If you choose to pay pension withholding with wage withholding, you do not have to complete this form. However, if you
choose separate reporting of wage and pension withholding, or if you report only pension withholding, you must complete and file this form to obtain a new
identification number.
Compensation Paid to a Nonresident Individual or Nonresident Entity for Personal Services Performed in North Carolina: If you pay non-wage
compensation of more than $1,500 during the calendar year to a nonresident contractor for personal services performed in N.C. in connection with a
performance, an entertainment or athletic event, a speech, or the creation of a film, radio, or television program, you must withhold N.C. income tax at the
rate of 4% from this non-wage compensation.
Compensation Paid to an ITIN Contractor: If you pay non-wage compensation of more than $1,500 during the calendar year to an ITIN contractor, you
must withhold North Carolina income tax at the rate of 4% from the non-wage compensation. An ITIN contractor is a contractor who performs services in
North Carolina for compensation other than wages and whose taxpayer identification number is an ITIN number instead of a social security number. An
ITIN is issued by the Internal Revenue Services to a person who is required to have a taxpayer identification number but does not have and is not eligible
to obtain a social security number.
Reporting and Paying Withholding from Non-wage Compensation: If you already have a wage withholding identification number, you should report
and pay the non-wage withholding with your wage withholding. If you report only non-wage withholding, you must complete and file this form to obtain
a withholding identification number. For detailed instructions on reporting and paying tax withheld from wages, pensions, and other non-wage
compensation, see Form NC-30, Income Tax Withholding Tables and Instructions for Employers. Form NC-30 is available on the Department’s
website at www.ncdor.gov.
III. Sales and Use Tax and Other Taxes and Service Charge
Every person engaged in business as a retailer or wholesale merchant in this State or a facilitator liable for remittance of sales and use taxes, must obtain
a Certificate of Registration. A Certificate of Registration issued by the Department contains the sales and use account ID issued by the Department.
A Certificate of Registration allows the retailer or wholesale merchant to issue Form E-595E, Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement Certificate of
Exemption, or the required data elements per N.C. Gen. Stat. § 105-164.28, to obtain tangible personal property, certain digital property or certain services
at the time of purchase for resale without paying sales and use tax. A purchaser is liable for a $250.00 penalty for misuse of the Certificate of Exemption
per N.C. Gen. Stat. § 105-236(a)(5a). See Form E-595E instructions for the proper use of the form.
Every business that purchases taxable tangible personal property, certain digital property, or certain services inside or outside this State for storage, use,
or consumption in North Carolina where sales and use tax is not paid to the vendor at the time of purchase is required to obtain a Certificate of Registration
to remit use tax due on the purchase price of such items unless the business is currently registered to remit sales tax.
In addition to items subject to the general State, applicable local, and applicable transit rates of sales and use tax, a person may register in this section
to report and remit tax due on the following: gross receipts derived from sales of electricity or piped natural gas; gross receipts derived from providing
telecommunications services and ancillary services or video programming; motor vehicle lease or rental receipts; scrap tire disposal; white goods (appliances)
disposal; and prepaid wireless telecommunications service charge.
