Do you know about Form 480? It is an informative document where payments subject to withholding or granted to a supplier for services or distributions are summarized. This form has different variants. They depend on your current tax contributions.
Here we share a bit about two specific forms: the 480.7G and the 480.7F. Learn how they differ from one another and to whom they apply.
What are Forms 480.7G and 480.7F?
Forms 480.7G and 480.7F are two variants of Form 480 that are used in Individual Income Tax Returns in Puerto Rico.
How are Form 480.7G and Form 480.7F different?
Their differences consist in the fact that Form 480.7G is delivered to every educational institution that is eligible to certify the required information of each student eligible to claim the American Opportunity Credit in the Individual Income Tax Return. The purpose of this form is to claim the credit and to be able to validate the information needed by the eligible student.
Form 480.7F, on the other hand, is used by commercial entities that are providers of internet access, cable or satellite television in Puerto Rico, or telecommunications services, that receive payments for advertisements or insurance premiums. Insurance premiums are as defined by the Puerto Rico Internal Revenue Code.
Important points for form 480.7G and form 480.7F:
- Informative 480.7G:
- The information must be delivered to the student who belongs to the educational institution.
- Informative 480.7F:
- This statement must be delivered to the person who made the payment within the next 7 calendar days, starting from the established deadline date.
- The Code imposes penalties for failing to report payments received on Form 480.7F or for failing to file the same. However, any customer in his industry or business who makes payments for these services through a residential account and requires this declaration for tax purposes must request it from the service provider.
When should these forms be processed?
It is crucial that these forms be submitted electronically to the Department of Treasury before February 28 of the following calendar year in which the payments were received since they are essential documents for everyone's compliance with tax obligations in Puerto Rico. Whether you are a telecommunications company or an educational institution, it is imperative to process the right information.
