foreign country) whose laws authorize the marriage of two individuals of the same sex, even if the state (or foreign country) in which they now live does not recognize same-sex marriage. 1040x file The term "spouse" includes an individual married to a person of the same sex if the couple is lawfully married under state (or foreign) law. 1040x file However, individuals who have entered into a registered domestic partnership, civil union, or other similar relationship that is not called a marriage under state (or foreign) law are not married for federal tax purposes. 1040x file The word “state” as used here includes the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and U. 1040x file S. 1040x file territories and possessions. 1040x file It means any domestic jurisdiction that has the legal authority to sanction marriages. 1040x file The term “foreign country” means any foreign jurisdiction that has the legal authority to sanction marriages. 1040x file If individuals of the same sex are married, they generally must use the married filing jointly or married filing separately filing status. 1040x file However, if they did not live together during the last 6 months of the year, one or both of them may be able to use the head of household filing status. 1040x file For details, see Publication 501, Exemptions, Standard Deduction, and Filing Information. 1040x file Also see Revenue

New Mexico, Texas, Washington, or Wisconsin. 1040x file This publication does not address the federal tax treatment of income or property subject to the “community property” election under Alaska state laws. 1040x file Community property laws affect how you figure your income on your federal income tax return if you are married, live in a community property state or country, and file separate returns. 1040x file If you are married, your tax usually will be less if you file married filing jointly than if you file married filing separately. 1040x file However, sometimes it can be to your advantage to file separate returns. 1040x file If you and your spouse file separate returns, you have to determine your community income and your separate income. 1040x file Community property laws also affect your basis in property you inherit from a married person who lived in a community property state. 1040x file See Death of spouse , later. 1040x file Registered domestic partners. 1040x

The 1040x File

1040x file Publication 334 - Introductory Material Table of Contents IntroductionOrdering forms and publications. 1040x file Tax questions. 1040x file Future Developments What's New for 2013 What's New for 2014 Reminders Photographs of Missing Children Introduction The purpose of this publication is to provide general information about the federal tax laws that apply to small business owners who are sole proprietors and to statutory employees. 1040x file This publication has information on business income, expenses, and tax credits that may help you file your income tax return. 1040x file Are you self-employed?   You are self-employed if you carry on a trade or business as a sole proprietor or an independent contractor. 1040x file Sole proprietor. 1040x file   A sole proprietor is someone who owns an unincorporated business by himself or herself. 1040x file However, if you are the sole member of a domestic limited liability company (LLC), you are not a sole proprietor if you elect to treat the LLC as a corporation. 1040x file Trade or business. 1040x file    A trade or business is generally an activity carried on to make a profit. 1040x file The facts and circumstances of each case determine whether or not an activity is a trade or business. 1040x file You do not need to actually make a profit to be in a trade or business as long as you have a profit motive. 1040x file You do need to make ongoing efforts to further the interests of your business. 1040x file   You do not have to carry on regular full-time business activities to be self-employed. 1040x file Having a part-time business in addition to your regular job or business may be self-employment. 1040x file Independent contractor. 1040x file    People such as doctors, dentists, veterinarians, lawyers, accountants, contractors, subcontractors, public stenographers, or auctioneers who are in an independent trade, business, or profession in which they offer their services to the general public are generally independent contractors. 1040x file However, whether they are independent contractors or employees depends on the facts in each case. 1040x file The general rule is that an individual is an independent contractor if the payer has the right to control or to direct only the result of the work and not how it will be done. 1040x file The earnings of a person who is working as an independent contractor are subject to self-employment tax. 1040x file For more information on determining whether you are an employee or independent contractor, see Publication 15-A, Employer's Supplemental Tax Guide. 1040x file Statutory employee. 1040x file   A statutory employee has a checkmark in box 13 of his or her Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. 1040x file Statutory employees use Schedule C or C-EZ to report their wages and expenses. 1040x file Limited liability company (LLC). 1040x file   A limited liability company (LLC) is an entity formed under state law by filing articles of organization. 1040x file Generally, a single-member LLC is disregarded as an entity separate from its owner and reports its income and deductions on its owner's federal income tax return. 1040x file An owner who is an individual may use Schedule C or C-EZ. 1040x file Business owned and operated by spouses. 1040x file   If you and your spouse jointly own and operate an unincorporated business and share in the profits and losses, you are partners in a partnership, whether or not you have a formal partnership agreement. 1040x file Do not use Schedule C or C-EZ. 1040x file Instead, file Form 1065, U. 1040x file S. 1040x file Return of Partnership Income. 1040x file For more information, see Publication 541, Partnerships. 1040x file    Exception—Community income. 1040x file If you and your spouse wholly own an unincorporated business as community property under the community property laws of a state, foreign country, or U. 1040x file S. 1040x file possession, you can treat the business either as a sole proprietorship or a partnership. 1040x file The only states with community property laws are Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin. 1040x file A change in your reporting position will be treated as a conversion of the entity. 1040x file    Exception—Qualified joint venture. 1040x file If you and your spouse each materially participate as the only members of a jointly owned and operated business, and you file a joint return for the tax year, you can make a joint election to be treated as a qualified joint venture instead of a partnership for the tax year. 1040x file Making this election will allow you to avoid the complexity of Form 1065 but still give each spouse credit for social security earnings on which retirement benefits are based. 1040x file For an explanation of "material participation," see the Instructions for Schedule C, line G. 1040x file   To make this election, you must divide all items of income, gain, loss, deduction, and credit attributable to the business between you and your spouse in accordance with your respective interests in the venture. 1040x file Each of you must file a separate Schedule C or C-EZ and a separate Schedule SE. 1040x file For more information, see Qualified Joint Ventures in the Instructions for Schedule SE. 1040x file This publication does not cover the topics
