Does the IRS have a different withholding rate for royalties as opposed to regular contract payments?

There is no difference in the withholding rate for royalties and for contract payments. One of several documents that addresses withholding is IRS publication 1679. Furthermore, we confirmed this with IRS agent Hilliard (ID# 006010). The current withholding rate is 28 percent.
