IRS Interest Rates Same For Second Quarter 2015

The Internal Revenue Service recently announced that interest rates will remain the same for the calendar quarter beginning April 1. 

The rates are:

  • 3 percent for overpayments or 2 percent in the case of a corporation;
  • 0.5percent for the portion of a corporate overpayment exceeding $10,000;
  • 3 percent for underpayments; and
  • 5 percent for large corporate underpayments.

Under the Internal Revenue Code, the rate of interest is determined on a quarterly basis. For taxpayers other than corporations, the overpayment and underpayment rate is the federal short-term rate plus 3 percentage points.

Generally, in the case of a corporation, the underpayment rate is the federal short-term rate plus 3 percentage points and the overpayment rate is the federal short-term rate plus 2 percentage points. The rate for large corporate underpayments is the federal short-term rate plus 5 percentage points. The rate on the portion of a corporate overpayment of tax exceeding $10,000 for a taxable period is the federal short-term rate plus 0.5 of a percentage point.

The interest rates are computed from the federal short-term rate determined in January.
