tax forms Part II. 2012 federal tax forms Part III. 2012 federal tax forms Part IV. 2012 federal tax forms Use the following examples to help you complete the correct attachment to your Form 1040. 2012 federal tax forms The completed form for each example is shown on the pages that follow. 2012 federal tax forms Illustrated Example of Form 4563 John Black is a U. 2012 federal tax forms S. 2012 federal tax forms citizen, single, and under 65. 2012 federal tax forms He was a bona fide resident of American Samoa during all of 2013. 2012 federal tax forms John must file Form 1040 because his gross income from sources outside the possessions ($10,000 of dividends from U. 2012 federal tax forms S. 2012 federal tax forms corporations) is more than his adjusted filing requirement for single filers under 65. 2012 federal tax forms (See Filing Requirement if Possession Income Is Excluded in chapter 4. 2012 federal tax forms ) Because he must file Form 1040 (not illustrated), he fills out Form 4563 to determine the amount of income from American Samoa he can exclude. 2012 federal tax forms See Bona Fide Resident of American Samoa in chapter 3. 2012 federal tax forms Completing Form 4563. 2012 federal tax forms   John enters his name and social security number at the top of the form. 2012 federal tax forms Line 1. 2012 federal tax forms   On Form 4563 (see later), John enters the date his bona fide residence began in American Samoa, June 2, 2012. 2012 federal tax forms Because he is still a bona fide resident, he enters “not ended” in the second blank space. 2012 federal tax forms Line 2. 2012 federal tax forms   He checks the box labeled “Rented house or apartment” to describe his type of living quarters in American Samoa. 2012 federal tax forms Lines 3a and 3b. 2012 federal tax forms   He checks “No” on line 3a because no family members lived with him. 2012 federal tax forms He leaves line 3b blank. 2012 federal tax forms Lines 4a and 4b. 2012 federal tax forms   He checks “No” on line 4a because he did not maintain a home outside American Samoa. 2012 federal tax forms He leaves line 4b blank. 2012 federal tax forms Line 5. 2012 federal tax forms   He enters the name and address of his employer, Samoa Products Co. 2012 federal tax forms It is a private American Samoa corporation. 2012 federal tax forms Line 6. 2012 federal tax forms   He enters the dates of his 2-week vacation to New Zealand from November 11 to November 25. 2012 federal tax forms That was his only trip outside American Samoa during the year. 2012 federal tax forms Line 7. 2012 federal tax forms   He enters the $24,000 in wages he received from Samoa Products Co. 2012 federal tax forms Line 9. 2012 federal tax forms   He received $220 in dividends from an American Samoa corporation, which he enters here. 2012 federal tax forms He also received $10,000 of dividends from a U. 2012 federal tax forms S. 2012 federal tax forms corporation, but he will enter that amount only on his Form 1040 because the U. 2012 federal tax forms S. 2012 federal tax forms dividends do not qualify for the possession exclusion. 2012 federal tax forms Line 15. 2012 federal tax forms   John totals the amounts on lines 7 and 9 to get the amount he can exclude from his gross income in 2013. 2012 federal tax forms He will not enter his excluded income on Form 1040. 2012 federal tax forms However, he will attach his completed Form 4563 to his Form 1040. 2012 federal tax forms Illustrated Example of Form 5074 Tracy Grey is a U. 2012 federal tax forms S. 2012 federal tax forms citizen who is a self-employed fisheries consultant with a tax home in New York. 2012 federal tax forms Her only income for 2013 was net self-employment income of $80,000. 2012 federal tax forms Of the $80,000, $20,000 was from consulting work in Guam and the rest was earned in the United States. 2012 federal tax forms Thinking she would owe tax to Guam on the $20,000, Tracy made estimated tax payments of $1,409 to Guam. 2012 federal tax forms She was not a bona fide resident of Guam during 2013. 2012 federal tax forms Tracy completes Form 1040 (not illustrated), reporting her worldwide income. 2012 federal tax forms Because the adjusted gross income on her Form 1040 was $50,000 or more and at least $5,000 of her gross income is from Guam, Tracy must file Form 5074 with her Form 1040. 2012 federal tax forms All amounts reported on Form 5074 are also reported on her Form 1040. 2012 federal tax forms See U. 2012 federal tax forms S. 2012 federal tax forms Citizen or Resident Alien (Other Than a Bona Fide Resident of Guam) in chapter 3. 2012 federal tax forms Completing Form 5074. 2012 federal tax forms   Tracy enters her name and social security number at the top of the form. 2012 federal tax forms Part I. 2012 federal tax forms   On Form 5074 (see later), Tracy enters her self-employment income from Guam ($20,000) on line 6. 2012 federal tax forms She has no other income from Guam, so the total on line 16 is $20,000. 2012 federal tax forms Part II. 2012 federal tax forms   Tracy's only adjustment in Part II is the deductible part of the self-employment tax on her net income earned in Guam. 2012 federal tax forms She enters $1,413 on line 21 and line 28. 2012 federal tax forms Her adjusted gross income on line 29 is $18,587. 2012 federal tax forms Part III. 2012 federal tax forms   Tracy made estimated tax payments of $1,409. 2012 federal tax forms She enters this amount on line 30, and again on line 34 as the total payments. 2012 federal tax forms Illustrated Example of Form 8689 Juan and Carla Moreno live and work in the United States. 2012 federal tax forms In 2013, they received $14,400 in income from the rental of a condominium they own in the U. 2012 federal tax forms S. 2012 federal tax forms Virgin Islands (USVI). 2012 federal tax forms The rental income was deposited in a bank in the USVI and they received $500 of interest on this income. 2012 federal tax forms They were not bona fide residents of the USVI during the entire tax year. 2012 federal tax forms The Morenos complete Form 1040 (not illustrated), reporting their income from all sources, including their interest income and the income and expenses from their USVI rental property (reported on Schedule E (Form 1040)). 2012 federal tax forms The Morenos take the standard deduction for married filing jointly, both are under 65, and they have no dependents. 2012 federal tax forms The Morenos also complete Form 8689 to determine how much of their U. 2012 federal tax forms S. 2012 federal tax forms tax shown on Form 1040, line 61 (with certain adjustments), must be paid to the U. 2012 federal tax forms S. 2012 federal tax forms Virgin Islands. 2012 federal tax forms See U. 2012 federal tax forms S. 2012 federal tax forms Citizen or Resident Alien (Other Than a Bona Fide Resident of the USVI) in chapter 3. 2012 federal tax forms The Morenos file their Form 1040, attaching Form 8689 and all other schedules, with the Internal Revenue Service. 2012 federal tax forms At the same time, they send a copy of their Form 1040 with all attachments, including Form 8689, to the Virgin Islands Bureau of Internal Revenue. 2012 federal tax forms The Virgin Islands Bureau of Internal Revenue will process this copy. 2012 federal tax forms Completing Form 8689. 2012 federal tax forms   Juan and Carla enter their names and Juan's social security number at the top of the form. 2012 federal tax forms Part I. 2012 federal tax forms   The Morenos enter their income from the USVI in Part I (see later). 2012 federal tax forms The interest income is entered on line 2 and the net rental income of $6,200 ($14,400 of rental income minus $8,200 of rental expenses) is entered on line 11. 2012 federal tax forms The Morenos' total USVI income of $6,700 is entered on line 16. 2012 federal tax forms Part II. 2012 federal tax forms   The Morenos have no adjustments to their USVI income, so they enter zero (-0-) on line 28, and $6,700 on line 29. 2012 federal tax forms Their USVI adjusted gross income (AGI) is $6,700. 2012 federal tax forms Part III. 2012 federal tax forms   On line 30, the Morenos enter the amount from Form 1040, line 61 ($4,539). 2012 federal tax forms Their Form 1040 does not show any entries required on line 31, so they leave that line blank and enter $4,539 on line 32. 2012 federal tax forms   The Morenos enter their worldwide AGI, $54,901 (Form 1040, line 38), on line 33. 2012 federal tax forms Next, they find what percentage of their AGI is from USVI sources ($6,700 ÷ $54,901 = 0. 2012 federal tax forms 122) and enter that as a decimal on line 34. 2012 federal tax forms They then apply that percentage to the U. 2012 federal tax forms S. 2012 federal tax forms tax entered on line 32 to find the amount of U. 2012 federal tax forms S. 2012 federal tax forms tax allocated to USVI income ($4,539 x 0. 2012 federal tax forms 122 = $554), and enter that amount on line 35. 2012 federal tax forms Part IV. 2012 federal tax forms   Part IV is used to show payments of income tax to the USVI only. 2012 federal tax forms The Morenos had no tax withheld by the U. 2012 federal tax forms S. 2012 federal tax forms Virgin Islands, but made estimated tax payments to the USVI of $400, which they entered on lines 37 and 39. 2012 federal tax forms They include this amount ($400) in the total payments on Form 1040, line 72. 2012 federal tax forms On the dotted line next to the entry space for line 72, they enter “Form 8689” and show the amount. 2012 federal tax forms The Morenos do not complete Form 1116 because they receive credit on Form 1040, line 72, for the tax paid to the USVI. 2012 federal tax forms   The income tax they owe to the USVI ($154) is shown on Form 8689, line 44. 2012 federal tax forms They enter this amount on line 45. 2012 federal tax forms They also include this additional amount ($154) on the dotted line next to the entry space and in the total on Form 1040, line 72. 2012 federal tax forms The Morenos will pay their USVI tax at the same time they file the copy of their U. 2012 federal tax forms S. 2012 federal tax forms income tax return with the U. 2012 federal tax forms S. 2012 federal tax forms Virgin Islands. 2012 federal tax forms This image is too large to be displayed in the
