Title: Directed Withholding and Deposit Verification and Central Withholding Agreement.

OMB Number: 1545-2102.

Form Number: Form 13920 and 13930.

Abstract: Form 13930 will be used by an individual who wishes to have a Central Withholding Agreement (CWA).

Section 1.1441-4(b)(3) of the Income Tax Regulations provides that the withholding can be considered for adjustment if a CWA is applied for and granted. Form 13920 is used by withholding agents to verify to IRS that required deposits were made and give the amount of such deposits.

Current Actions: We are seeking to add Form 13920 under the current approval number 1545-2102.

Type of Review: Revision to Previously Approved IC.

Affected Public: Businesses and other for-profit organizations, Not-for-profit organizations, and State, Local, or Tribal Governments.
