Can you tell me the source of the funds?
Hello again wallace,
If that is the case, then I have to assume that no taxes have been taken out at this point. If you simply plan to deposit this money into your bank account, the bank will certainly not withhold any taxes.
However, you may want to consider yourself making an estimated tax payment to the IRS just so that at the end of the year you do not end up being too short on the tax paid in, and having to pay not only your tax, but also some interest.
If you would like to make an estimated tax payment to the IRS you can do so by filling out Form 1040-ES and submitting it to the IRS with your estimated tax payment. You would then receive credit for that payment when you do your tax returns at the end of the year. But the bank itself will not withhold any tax on the money you deposit.
