General Instructions for
Paid to Certain Payees
A payer is required to withhold North Carolina
income tax from non-wage compensation paid
to a payee. A payer is an individual or entity that
pays non-wage compensation in the course of
their trade or business.
A payee is any of the following:
a. A nonresident contractor: a nonresident
individual or a nonresident entity that performs
services in this State which are in connection
with a performance, an entertainment or
athletic event, a speech, or the creation of a
lm, radio, or television program.
b. An ITIN contractor: an individual who performs
services in this State for compensation other
than wages, and whose taxpayer identication
number is an Individual Taxpayer Identication
Number (ITIN), including applied for and
expired numbers. An ITIN is issued by the IRS
to a person who is required to have a taxpayer
identication number but does not have and is
not eligible to obtain a social security number.
c. An individual or entity that fails to provide the
payer with a taxpayer identication number.
d. A individual or entity that provides an invalid
taxpayer identication number to the payer and
the payer is notied by the Department that the
taxpayer identication number is invalid.
The requirement to withhold applies to payers who
pay more than $1,500 of non-wage compensation
to an above mentioned payee. These payers
must withhold North Carolina income tax at the
rate of four percent (4%) from the compensation.

Specic Instructions for Payee
Withholding of income tax from a payee’s
non-wage compensation does not relieve the
payee from their responsibility to file a North
Carolina income tax return. Individuals and C
corporations may claim the tax withheld reported
in Box 2 against the income tax liability for the
year. Partnerships may claim only the portion of
tax withheld that is attributable to nonresident
partners on whose behalf the managing partner is
required to pay the tax. S corporations may claim
only the portion of the tax withheld attributable
to its nonresident shareholders on whose behalf
a composite income tax return is led. Attach a
