The Form 8027 feature in R365 assists with the completion of IRS form 8027. For proper completion of IRS form 8027 based on the needs of your organization, please refer to Instructions for Form 8027 (2023) (

After setup, users can generate an 8027 report with data from R365 for a desired location and year. The generated report will be populated with tip and sales data associated with configured jobs, POS sales account categories, and operational report categories

The generated 8027 report can be edited to adjust for any additional information that was not in the R365 data. Any adjustments are saved on the generated report for future reference. 

The generated 8027 report in Workforce is displayed in the same order as the IRS form 8027 to assist in data transfer. Once the report is completed in Workforce, users can use it to transfer the data from Workforce to the IRS form in order to submit it to the IRS.  

Electronic File

After an 8027 report has been generated and edited, it can be included in an electronic file. Multiple reports can be included in the same electronic file. If the selected reports are associated with multiple legal entities, a single electronic file is created for each legal entity that contains the details for the combined reports for that legal entity.

When creating electronic files, all of the fields are required. The following fields must be manually edited on each generated report:

  • Type of Establishment
  • Allocation Method
  • Does this establishment accept credit cards, debit cards, or other charges?
