The interest rates will be 6% for overpayments (5% in the case of a corporation) and underpayments, 8% for large corporate underpayments and 3.5% for the portion of a corporate overpayment exceeding $10,000. The interest rates are computed by using the federal short-term rate based on daily compounding determined during October 2018. The rate of interest is determined on a quarterly basis.
