place where you spend most of your working time. 1040x form for 2013 This could be your office, plant, store, shop, or other location. 1040x form for 2013 If there is no one place where you spend most of your working time, your main job location is the place where your work is centered, such as where you report for work or are otherwise required to “base” your work. 1040x form for 2013 Union members. 1040x form for 2013   If you work for several employers on a short-term basis and you get work under a union hall system (such as a construction or building trades worker), your main job

of work  determines which test applies. 1040x form for 2013 both self-employed and an employee, but unable to satisfy the 39-week test for employees 78-week test for self-employed persons. 1040x form

self-employed persons. 1040x form for 2013 Both of these tests are explained below. 1040x form for 2013 See Table 1, below, for a summary of these tests. 1040x form for 2013 You can deduct your moving

at least 39 weeks during the first 12 months after you arrive in the general area of your new job location (39-week test). 1040x form for 2013 Full-time employment depends on what is usual for your type of work in your area. 1040x form for 2013 For purposes of this test, the following four rules apply. 1040x form for 2013 You count only your full-time work as an employee, not any work you do as a self-employed person. 1040x form for 2013 You do not have to work for the same employer for all 39 weeks. 1040x form for 2013 You do not have to work 39 weeks in a row. 1040x form for 2013 You must work full time within the same general commuting area for all 39 weeks. 1040x form for 2013 Temporary absence from work. 1040x form for 2013   You are considered to have worked full time during any week you are temporarily absent from work because of illness, strikes, lockouts, layoffs, natural disasters, or similar causes. 1040x form for 2013 You are also considered to have worked full time during any week you are absent from work for leave or vacation provided for in your work contract or agreement. 1040x form for 2013 Seasonal work. 1040x form for 2013   If your work is seasonal, you are considered to be working full time during the off-season only if your work contract or agreement covers an off-season period of less than 6 months. 1040x form for 2013 For example, a school teacher on a 12-month contract who teaches on a full-time basis for more than 6 months is considered to have worked full time for the entire 12 months. 1040x form for 2013    Figure B. 1040x form for 2013 Can You Deduct Expenses for a Non-Military Move Within the United States? Please click here for the text description of the image. 1040x form for 2013 Figure B Time Test for Self-Employed Persons If you are self-employed, you must work full time for at least 39 weeks during the first 12 months and for a total of at least 78 weeks during the first 24 months after you arrive in the general area of your new job location (78-week test). 1040x form for 2013 For purposes of the time test for self-employed persons, the following three rules apply. 1040x form for 2013 You count any full-time work you do either as an employee or as a self-employed person. 1040x form for 2013 You do not have to work for the same employer or be self-employed in the same trade or business for the 78 weeks. 1040x form for 2013 You must work within the same general commuting area for all 78 weeks. 1040x form for 2013 Example. 1040x form for 2013 You are a self-employed accountant who moves from Atlanta to New York City, and begin to work there on December 1, 2013. 1040x form for 2013 You pay moving expenses in 2013 and 2014 in connection with this move. 1040x form for 2013 On April 15, 2014, when you file your income tax return for the year 2013, you have been performing services as a self-employed individual on a full-time basis in New York City for approximately 20 weeks. 1040x form for 2013 Although you have not satisfied the 78-week employment condition at this time, you can deduct your 2013 moving expenses on your 2013 income tax return as there is still sufficient time remaining before December 1, 2015, to satisfy such condition. 1040x form for 2013 You can deduct any moving expenses you pay in 2014 on your 2014 income tax return even if you have not met the 78-week test. 1040x form for 2013 You have until December 1, 2015, to satisfy this requirement. 1040x form for 2013 Self-employment. 1040x form for 2013   You are self-employed if you work as the sole owner of an unincorporated business or as a partner in a partnership carrying on a business. 1040x form for 2013 You are not considered self-employed if you are semi-retired, are a part-time student, or work only a few hours each week. 1040x form for 2013 Full-time work. 1040x form for 2013   You can count only those weeks during which you work full time as a week of work. 1040x form for 2013 Whether you work full time during any week depends on what is usual for your type of work in your area. 1040x form for 2013 For example, you are a self-employed dentist and maintain office hours 4 days a week. 1040x form for 2013 You are considered to perform services full time if maintaining office hours 4 days a week is not unusual for other self-employed dentists in your area. 1040x form for 2013 Temporary absence from work. 1040x form for 2013   You are considered to be self-employed on a full-time basis during any week you are temporarily absent from work because of illness, strikes, natural disasters, or similar causes. 1040x form for 2013 Seasonal trade or business. 1040x form for 2013   If your trade or business is seasonal, the off-season weeks when no work is required or available may be counted as weeks during which you worked full time. 1040x form for 2013 The off-season must be less than 6 months and you must work full time before and after the off-season. 1040x form for 2013 Example. 1040x form for 2013 You own and operate a motel at a beach resort. 1040x form for 2013 The motel is closed for 5 months during the off-season. 1040x form for 2013 You work full time as the operator of the motel before and after the off-season. 1040x form for 2013 You are considered self-employed on a full-time basis during the weeks of the off-season. 1040x form for 2013   If you were both an employee and self-employed, see Table 1 earlier, for the requirements. 1040x form for 2013 Example. 1040x form for 2013 Justin quit his job and moved from the east coast to the west coast to begin a full-time job as a cabinet-maker for C and L Cabinet Shop. 1040x form for 2013 He generally worked at the shop about 40 hours each week. 1040x form for 2013 Shortly after the move, Justin also began operating a cabinet-installation business from his home for several hours each afternoon and all day on weekends. 1040x form for 2013 Because Justin's principal place of business is the cabinet shop, he can satisfy the time test by meeting the 39-week test. 1040x form for 2013    If Justin is unable to satisfy the requirements of the 39-week test during the 12-month period immediately following his arrival in the general location of his new principal place of work, he can satisfy the 78-week test. 1040x form for 2013 Joint Return If you are married, file a joint return, and both you and your spouse work full-time, either of you can satisfy the full-time work test. 1040x form for 2013 However, you cannot add the weeks your spouse worked to the weeks you worked to satisfy that test. 1040x form for 2013 Time Test Not Yet Met You can deduct your moving expenses on your 2013 tax return even though you have not met the time test by the date your 2013 return is due. 1040x form for 2013 You can do this if you expect to meet the 39-week test in 2014 or the 78-week test in 2014 or 2015. 1040x form for 2013 If you do not deduct your moving expenses on your 2013 return, and you later meet the time test, you can file an amended return for 2013 to take the deduction. 1040x form for 2013 See When To Deduct Expenses later, for more details. 1040x form for 2013 Failure to meet the time test. 1040x form for 2013    If you deduct moving expenses but do not meet the time test in 2014 or 2015, you must either: Report your moving expense deduction as other income on your Form 1040 for the year you cannot meet the test, or Use Form 1040X to amend your 2013 return, figuring your tax without the moving expense deduction. 1040x form for 2013 Example. 1040x form for 2013 You arrive in the general area of your new job location, as an employee, on September 15, 2013. 1040x form for 2013 You deduct your moving expenses on your 2013 return, the year of the move, even though you have not yet met the time test by the date your return is due. 1040x form for 2013 If you do not meet the 39-week test during the 12-month period following your arrival in the general area of your new job location, you must either: Report your moving expense deduction as other income on your Form 1040 for 2014, or Use Form 1040X to amend your 2013 return, figuring your tax without the moving expense deduction. 1040x form for 2013 Exceptions to the Time Test You do not have to meet the time test if one of the following applies. 1040x form for 2013 You are in the Armed Forces and you moved because of a permanent change of station. 1040x form for 2013 See Members of the Armed Forces , later. 1040x form for 2013 Your main job location was outside the United States and you moved to the United States because you retired. 1040x form for 2013 See Retirees or Survivors Who Move to the United States, later. 1040x form for 2013 You are the survivor of a person whose main job location at the time of death was outside the United States. 1040x form for 2013 See Retirees or Survivors Who Move to the United States, later. 1040x form for 2013 Your job at the new location ends because of death or disability. 1040x form for 2013 You are transferred for your employer's benefit or laid off for a reason other than willful misconduct. 1040x form for 2013 For this exception, you must have obtained full-time employment and you must have expected to meet the test at the time you started the job. 1040x form for 2013 Retirees or Survivors Who Move to the United States If you are a retiree who was working abroad or a survivor of a decedent who was working abroad and you move to the United States or one of its possessions, you do not have to meet the time test, discussed earlier. 1040x form for 2013 However, you must meet the requirements discussed below under Retirees who were working abroad or Survivors of decedents who were working abroad. 1040x form for 2013 If you are living in the United States, retire, and then move and remain retired, you cannot claim a moving expense deduction for that move. 1040x form for 2013 United States defined. 1040x form for 2013   For this section of this publication, the term “United States” includes the possessions

retire. 1040x form for 2013 However, both your former main job location and your former home must have been outside the United States. 1040x form for 2013 Permanently retired. 1040x form for 2013   You are considered permanently retired when you cease gainful full-time employment or self-employment. 1040x form for 2013 If, at the time you retire, you intend your retirement to be permanent, you will be considered retired even though you later return to work. 1040x form for 2013 Your intention to retire permanently may be determined by: Your age and health, The customary retirement age for people who do similar work, Whether you receive retirement payments from a pension or retirement fund, and The length of time before you return to full-time work. 1040x form for 2013 Decedents. 1040x

of reimbursements on which your employer must withhold income, social security, and Medicare taxes. 1040x form for 2013 Types of Reimbursement Plans If you receive a reimbursement for your moving

of how to report your reimbursement and moving expenses, see Table 2 in the section on How and When To Report, later. 1040x form for 2013 Your employer should tell you what method of reimbursement is used and what records are required. 1040x form for 2013 Accountable Plans To be an accountable plan, your employer's reimbursement arrangement must require you to meet all three of the following rules. 1040x form for 2013 Your expenses must have a business connection – that is, you must have paid or incurred deductible expenses while performing services as an employee of your employer. 1040x form for 2013 Two examples of this are the reasonable expenses of moving your possessions from your former home to your new home, and traveling from your former home to your new home. 1040x form for 2013 You must adequately account to your employer for these expenses within a reasonable period of time. 1040x form for 2013 You must return any excess reimbursement or allowance within a reasonable period of time. 1040x form for 2013 Adequate accounting. 1040x form for 2013   You adequately account for your moving expenses by giving your employer documentation of those expenses, such as a statement of expense, an account book, a diary, or a similar record in which you entered each expense at or near the time you had it. 1040x form for 2013 Documentation includes receipts, canceled checks, and bills. 1040x form for 2013 Reasonable period of time. 1040x form for 2013   What constitutes a “reasonable period of time” depends on the facts and circumstances of your situation. 1040x form for 2013 However, regardless of the facts and circumstances, actions that take place within the times specified in the following list will be treated as taking place within a reasonable period of time. 1040x form for 2013 You receive an advance within 30 days of the time you have an expense. 1040x form for 2013 You adequately account for your expenses within 60 days after they were paid or incurred. 1040x form for 2013 You return any excess reimbursement within 120 days after the expense was paid or incurred. 1040x form for 2013 You are given a periodic statement (at least quarterly) that asks you to either return or adequately account for outstanding advances and you comply within 120 days of the statement. 1040x form for 2013 Excess reimbursement. 1040x form for 2013   This includes any amount you are paid (including advances and allowances) that is more than the moving expenses that you adequately accounted for to your employer within a reasonable period of time. 1040x form for 2013 Returning excess reimbursements. 1040x form for 2013   You must be required to return any excess reimbursement for your moving expenses to the person paying the reimbursement. 1040x form for 2013 Excess reimbursement includes any amount for which you did not adequately account within a reasonable period of time. 1040x form for 2013 For example, if you received an advance and you did not spend all the money on deductible moving expenses, or you do not have proof of all your expenses, you have an excess reimbursement. 1040x form for 2013 You meet accountable plan rules. 1040x form for 2013   If for all reimbursements you meet the three rules for an accountable plan (listed earlier), your employer should not include any reimbursements of expenses in your income in box 1 of your Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. 1040x form for 2013 Instead, your employer should include the reimbursements in box 12 of your Form W-2. 1040x form for 2013 Example. 1040x form for 2013 You lived in Boston and accepted a job in Atlanta. 1040x form for 2013 Under an accountable plan, your employer reimbursed you for your actual traveling expenses from Boston to Atlanta and the cost of moving your furniture to Atlanta. 1040x form for 2013 Your employer will include the reimbursement on your Form W-2, box 12, with Code P. 1040x form for 2013 If your moving expenses are more than your reimbursement, you may be able to deduct your additional expenses (see How and When To Report, later). 1040x form for 2013 You do not meet accountable plan rules. 1040x form for 2013   You may be reimbursed by your employer, but you may not meet all three rules for part of your expenses. 1040x form for 2013   If your deductible expenses are reimbursed under an otherwise accountable plan but you do not return, within a reasonable period, any reimbursement of expenses for which you did not adequately account, then only the amount for which you did adequately account is considered as paid under an accountable plan. 1040x form for 2013 The remaining expenses are treated as having been reimbursed under a nonaccountable plan (discussed below). 1040x form for 2013 Reimbursement of nondeductible expenses. 1040x form for 2013   You may be reimbursed by your employer for moving expenses, some of which are deductible expenses and some of which are not deductible. 1040x form for 2013 The reimbursements you receive for the nondeductible expenses and any allowances for miscellaneous or unspecified expenses are treated as paid under a nonaccountable plan (see below) and are included in your income. 1040x form for 2013 If you are reimbursed by your employer for the taxes you must pay (including social security and Medicare taxes) because you have received taxable moving expense reimbursements, you must pay tax on this reimbursement as well, and it is treated as paid under a nonaccountable plan. 1040x form for 2013 Nonaccountable Plans A nonaccountable plan is a reimbursement arrangement that does not meet the three rules listed earlier under Accountable Plans. 1040x form for 2013 In addition, the following payments will be treated as paid under a nonaccountable plan. 1040x form for 2013 Excess reimbursements you fail to return to your employer. 1040x form for 2013 Reimbursements of nondeductible expenses. 1040x form for 2013 See Reimbursement of nondeductible expenses, earlier. 1040x form for 2013 If an arrangement pays for your moving expenses by reducing your wages, salary, or other pay, the amount of the reduction will be treated as a payment made under a nonaccountable plan. 1040x form for 2013 This is because you are entitled to receive the full amount of your pay regardless of whether you had any moving expenses. 1040x form for 2013 If you are not sure if the moving expense reimbursement arrangement is an accountable or nonaccountable plan, ask your employer. 1040x form for 2013 Your employer will add the amount of any reimbursement paid to you under a nonaccountable plan to your wages, salary, or other pay. 1040x form for 2013 Your employer will report the total in box 1 of your Form W-2. 1040x form for 2013 Example. 1040x form for 2013 To get you to work in another city, your new employer reimburses you under an accountable plan for the $7,500 loss on the sale of your home. 1040x form for 2013 Because this is a reimbursement of a nondeductible expense, it is treated as paid under a nonaccountable plan and must be included as income in box 1 of your Form W-2. 1040x form for 2013 Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970 Do not include in income any moving expense payment you received under the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970. 1040x form for 2013 These payments are made to persons displaced from their homes, businesses, or farms by federal projects. 1040x form for 2013 Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax Your employer must withhold income, social security, and Medicare taxes from reimbursements and allowances paid to you that are included in your income. 1040x form for 2013 See Reimbursements included in income, later. 1040x form for 2013 Reimbursements excluded from income. 1040x form for 2013   Your employer should not include in your wages reimbursements paid under an accountable plan (explained earlier) for moving expenses that you: Could deduct if you had paid or incurred them, and Did not deduct in an earlier year. 1040x form for 2013 These reimbursements are fringe benefits excludable from your income as qualified moving expense reimbursements. 1040x form for 2013 Your employer should report these reimbursements on your Form W-2, box 12, with Code P. 1040x form for 2013    You cannot claim a moving expense deduction for expenses covered by reimbursements excluded from income (see Accountable Plans under Types of Reimbursement Plans, earlier). 1040x form for 2013 Expenses deducted in earlier year. 1040x form for 2013   If you receive a reimbursement this year for moving expenses deducted in an earlier year, and the reimbursement is not included as wages in box 1 of your Form W-2, you must include the reimbursement in income on Form 1040, line 21. 1040x form for 2013 Your employer should show the amount of your reimbursement in box 12 of your Form W-2. 1040x form for 2013 Reimbursements included in income. 1040x form for 2013   Your employer must include in your income any reimbursements made (or treated as made) under a nonaccountable plan, even though they are for deductible moving expenses. 1040x form for 2013 See Nonaccountable Plans under Types of Reimbursement Plans, earlier. 1040x form for 2013 Your employer also must include in your gross income as wages any reimbursements of, or payments for, nondeductible moving expenses. 1040x form for 2013 This includes amounts your employer reimbursed you under an accountable plan (explained earlier) for meals, househunting trips, and real estate expenses. 1040x form for 2013 It also includes reimbursements that exceed your deductible expenses and that you do not return to your employer. 1040x form for 2013 Reimbursement for deductible and nondeductible expenses. 1040x form for 2013    If your employer reimburses you for both deductible and nondeductible moving expenses, your employer must determine the amount of the reimbursement that is not taxable and not subject to withholding. 1040x form for 2013 Your employer must treat any remaining amount as taxable wages and withhold income, social security, and Medicare taxes. 1040x form for 2013 Amount of income tax withheld. 1040x form for 2013   If the reimbursements or allowances you receive are taxable, the amount of income tax your employer will withhold depends on several factors. 1040x form for 2013 It depends in part on whether income tax is withheld from your regular wages, on whether the reimbursements and allowances are added to your regular wages, and on any information you have given to your employer on Form W-4, Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate. 1040x form for 2013   Your employer can treat your reimbursements as supplemental wages and not include the reimbursements and allowances in your regular wages. 1040x form for 2013 The employer can withhold income tax on supplemental wages at a flat rate which may be different from your regular tax rate. 1040x form for 2013 Estimated tax. 1040x form for 2013    If you must make estimated tax payments, you need to take into account any taxable reimbursements and deductible moving expenses in figuring your estimated tax. 1040x form for 2013 For details about estimated taxes, see Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax. 1040x form

ni pueden ser incluidos en los ingresos del cónyuge beneficiario. 1040x form for 2013 Obligación de pagos después de la muerte del cónyuge beneficiario. 1040x form for 2013   Si tiene que continuar haciendo pagos por algún período después de la muerte de su cónyuge, la parte del pago que continuaría no se considera pensión para el cónyuge divorciado, independientemente de si se haya hecho antes o después de la muerte. 1040x form for 2013 Si la totalidad del pago continúa, ninguno de los pagos hechos antes o después de la muerte se considera pensión para el cónyuge divorciado. 1040x form for 2013   En el documento de divorcio o de separación judicial no tiene que constar expresamente que los pagos cesan al morir su cónyuge si, por ejemplo, la obligación de continuar con los pagos terminara conforme a la ley estatal. 1040x form for 2013 Ejemplo. 1040x form for 2013 Usted tiene que pagar a su ex cónyuge $10,000 en efectivo anualmente por 10 años. 1040x form for 2013 En su decreto de divorcio consta que los pagos cesarán al morir su ex cónyuge. 1040x form for 2013 También tiene que pagarle $20,000 en efectivo a su ex cónyuge, o al caudal hereditario (patrimonio) de su ex cónyuge, anualmente por 10 años. 1040x form for 2013 La muerte de su cónyuge no causaría el cese de estos pagos conforme a la ley estatal. 1040x form for 2013 Los pagos anuales de $10,000 podrían considerarse pensión para el cónyuge divorciado. 1040x form for 2013 Los pagos anuales de $20,000 que no cesan al morir su ex cónyuge no son pensión para el cónyuge divorciado. 1040x form for 2013 Pagos sustitutivos. 1040x form for 2013   Si tiene que hacer algún pago en efectivo o en bienes después de la muerte de su cónyuge para sustituir los pagos continuos que de otra manera corresponderían antes de la muerte, los pagos que de otra manera corresponderían no son considerados pensión para el cónyuge divorciado. 1040x form for 2013 Hasta el punto en que sus pagos comiencen, se aceleren o aumenten debido a la muerte de su cónyuge, los pagos que de otra manera corresponderían que usted hizo podrían considerarse pagos que no son pensión para el cónyuge divorciado. 1040x form for 2013 Si los pagos son o no considerados pensión para el cónyuge divorciado depende de todos los hechos y circunstancias. 1040x form for 2013 Ejemplo 1. 1040x form for 2013 Conforme a su decreto de divorcio, tiene que pagarle a su ex cónyuge $30,000 anualmente. 1040x form for 2013 Los pagos cesarán al final de 6 años o al morir su cónyuge, lo que suceda antes. 1040x form for 2013 Su ex cónyuge tiene la custodia de sus hijos menores de edad. 1040x form for 2013 El decreto estipula que si algún hijo aún es menor de edad al morir su cónyuge, tiene que pagar $10,000 anualmente a un fideicomiso hasta que su hijo más joven alcance la mayoría de edad. 1040x form for 2013 Los ingresos de fideicomiso y los bienes entregados en fideicomiso (capital) sólo pueden ser usados para el beneficio de sus hijos. 1040x form for 2013 Estos hechos indican que los pagos que han de hacerse después de la muerte de su ex cónyuge sustituyen $10,000 de los pagos anuales de $30,000. 1040x form for 2013 De cada uno de los pagos anuales de $30,000, $10,000 no se consideran pensión para el cónyuge divorciado. 1040x form for 2013 Ejemplo 2. 1040x form for 2013 Conforme a su decreto de divorcio, usted tiene que pagarle a su ex cónyuge $30,000 anualmente. 1040x form for 2013 Los pagos cesarán al final de 15 años o al morir su ex cónyuge, lo que suceda antes. 1040x form for 2013 El decreto estipula que si su ex cónyuge fallece antes del final del período de 15 años, usted le tiene que pagar a su caudal hereditario (patrimonio) la diferencia entre $450,000 ($30,000 x 15) y el total de la cantidad pagada hasta ese momento. 1040x form for 2013 Por ejemplo, si su cónyuge fallece al final del décimo año, tiene que pagarle al caudal hereditario (patrimonio) $150,000 ($450,000 − $300,000). 1040x form for 2013 Estos hechos indican que el pago de suma global que ha de hacerse después de la muerte de su ex cónyuge sustituye la cantidad completa de los pagos anuales de $30,000. 1040x form for 2013 Ninguno de los pagos anuales se considera pensión para el cónyuge divorciado. 1040x form for 2013 El resultado sería el mismo si el pago que se requiere cuando ocurre la muerte se descontara por un factor de intereses correspondientes para justificar el pago por adelantado. 1040x form for 2013 Pensión para hijos menores. 1040x form for 2013   Un pago específicamente designado como pensión para hijos menores o tratado específicamente como pensión para hijos menores conforme a su documento de divorcio o separación judicial no se considera pensión para el cónyuge divorciado. 1040x form for 2013 La cantidad o parte designada podría variar con el tiempo. 1040x form for 2013 Los pagos de la pensión para hijos menores no son deducibles por parte del pagador ni están sujetos a impuestos por parte del beneficiario. 1040x form for 2013 Específicamente designado como pensión para hijos menores. 1040x form for 2013   Un pago se considera específicamente designado como pensión para hijos menores hasta el punto en que el pago sea reducido por una de las siguientes situaciones: En el caso de una contingencia relacionada con su hijo o En un momento que pueda ser claramente asociado con la contingencia. 1040x form for 2013 Un pago puede considerarse específicamente designado pensión para hijos menores aun si otros pagos por separado son específicamente designados como pensión para hijos menores. 1040x form for 2013 Contingencia relacionada con su hijo. 1040x form for 2013   Una contingencia está relacionada con su hijo si depende de algún suceso relacionado con ese hijo. 1040x form for 2013 No importa si es seguro o probable que el suceso vaya a ocurrir. 1040x form for 2013 Los sucesos relacionados con su hijo incluyen que éste: Obtenga un empleo, Muera, Deje la unidad familiar, Deje la escuela, Se case o Alcance una edad o un nivel de ingresos específico. 1040x form for 2013 Pago claramente asociado con una contingencia. 1040x form for 2013   Se considera que los pagos se reducirán en un momento que esté claramente asociado con el suceso de una contingencia relacionada con su hijo sólo en las siguientes situaciones: Los pagos han de ser reducidos dentro de un período de no más de 6 meses antes o después de la fecha en que su hijo alcance los 18 o 21 años de edad o la mayoría de edad en su localidad. 1040x form for 2013 Los pagos han de ser reducidos en dos o más ocasiones que ocurran a más tardar un año antes o después de que otro hijo suyo alcance cierta edad entre los 18 y 24 años. 1040x form for 2013 Esta edad tiene que ser la misma para cada hijo pero no tiene que ser en años completos. 1040x form for 2013 En todas las demás situaciones, las reducciones en pagos no se consideran claramente asociadas con el suceso de una contingencia relacionada con su hijo. 1040x form for 2013   Usted o el IRS puede evitar la presunción hecha en las dos situaciones anteriores. 1040x form for 2013 Esto se hace mostrando que el momento en el que los pagos han de ser reducidos fue determinado independientemente de toda contingencia relacionada con sus hijos. 1040x form for 2013 Por ejemplo, si puede mostrar que el período de pagos de la pensión para el cónyuge divorciado es el que se acostumbra en su jurisdicción local, tal como un período equivalente a la mitad de los años que duró el matrimonio, puede evitar la presunción y tal vez pueda tratar la cantidad que pagó como pensión para el cónyuge divorciado. 1040x form for 2013 Cómo Deducir la Pensión para el Cónyuge Divorciado que Pagó Puede deducir la pensión para el cónyuge divorciado que pagó,
