That bonus should be added to your wages and shown on your W2 so you would not have to do anything special about reporting.

Your employer is also required to withhold tax so your W2 will have all that information and you report the wages and the taxes withheld as usual.

Please let me know if you need clarification. If you do not then a positive 5 star rating is appreciated so I get credit for the response. (look for the STARS or SMILEY FACES)

I wanted to check back and see if you had further questions about that bonus.
