In Puerto Rico, the Employer’s Quarterly Return of Income Tax Withheld, also known as PR Form 499 R-1B, must be filed by every employer who is required to deduct and withhold income tax. The form itself is simple and, often, doesn’t take much time to complete. Employers must include the number of employees in a pay period, report the total amount of wages, allowances, commissions, and tips, calculate the total amount of tax withheld, and report any credits. Then, there is a series of very simple calculations. If you need to complete the monthly withholding detail, you’ll need to do, more or less, the same thing. Puerto Rico provides an excellent resource for those who need detailed explanations, and the Spanish language version is just as helpful.
Some employers have this information accessible and on-hand, making the PR Form 499 R-1B nice and simple. Unfortunately, most employers don’t keep meticulous records, especially when it comes to employee wages. If this describes your situation, you may spend hours trying to find the correct data. This is where Advanced Micro Solutions can help.
