Description

I wanted to know what is the recommended way and/or the industry standard to handle an IRS witholding in the 835. Is it to take the withold at the line level, and use a CARC code of 105 or is it to take the withold at the provider level and utilize a PLB*IR segment?

Response

The preferred method to handle IRS tax withholding is in the PLB. Use qualifier IR to report the withholding amount.
