Amending tax Original issue discount. Amending tax Interest from a state, the District of Columbia, or the U. Amending tax S. Amending tax Government. Amending tax The place or manner of payment is immaterial in determining the source of the income. Amending tax A substitute interest payment made to the transferor of a security in a securities lending transaction or a sale-repurchase transaction is sourced in the same manner as the interest on the transferred security. Amending tax Exceptions. Amending tax   U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source interest income does not include the following items. Amending tax Interest paid by a resident alien or a domestic corporation on obligations issued before August 10, 2010, if for the 3-year period ending with the close of the payer's tax year preceding the interest payment, at least 80% of the payer's total gross income: Is from sources outside the United States, and Is attributable to the active conduct of a trade or business by the individual or corporation in a foreign country or a U.

Amending tax The recipient of the interest is related to the resident alien or domestic corporation. Amending tax See section 954(d)(3) for the definition of related person. Amending tax The terms of the obligation are significantly modified after August 9, 2010. Amending tax Any extension of the term of the obligation is considered a significant modification. Amending tax Interest paid by a foreign branch of a domestic corporation or a domestic partnership on deposits or withdrawable accounts with mutual savings banks, cooperative banks, credit unions, domestic building and loan associations, and other savings institutions chartered and supervised as savings and loan or similar associations under federal or state law if the interest paid or credited can be deducted by the association. Amending tax Interest on deposits with a foreign branch of a domestic corporation or domestic partnership, but only if the branch is in the commercial banking business. Amending tax Dividends In most cases, dividend income received from domestic corporations is U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income. Amending tax Dividend income from foreign corporations is usually foreign source income. Amending tax Exceptions to both of these rules are discussed below. Amending tax A substitute dividend payment made to the transferor of a security in a securities lending transaction or a sale-repurchase transaction is sourced in the same manner as a distribution on the transferred security. Amending tax Dividend equivalent payments. Amending tax   U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source dividends also include all dividend equivalent payments. Amending tax Dividend equivalent payments include substitute dividends, payments made pursuant to a specified notional principal contract, and all similar payments that, directly or indirectly, are contingent on or determined by reference to, the payment of a dividend from U. Amending tax S. Amending tax sources. Amending tax    The Internal Revenue Service has issued final regulations that would affect the treatment of dividend equivalent payments and specified notional principal contracts. Amending tax You can view this regulation at www. Amending tax irs. Amending tax gov/irb/2013-52_IRB/ar08. Amending tax html. Amending tax First exception. Amending tax   Dividends received from a domestic corporation are not U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income if the corporation elects to take the American Samoa economic development credit. Amending tax Second exception. Amending tax   Part of the dividends received from a foreign corporation is U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income if 25% or more of its total gross income for the 3-year period ending with the close of its tax year preceding the declaration of dividends was effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Amending tax If the corporation was formed less than 3 years before the declaration, use its total gross income from the time it was formed. Amending tax Determine the part that is U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income by multiplying the dividend by the following fraction. Amending tax   Foreign corporation's gross income connected with a U. Amending tax S. Amending tax trade or business for the 3-year period     Foreign corporation's gross income from all sources for that period   Guarantee of Indebtedness Certain amounts received directly or indirectly, for the provision of a guarantee of indebtedness issued after September 27, 2010, are U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income. Amending tax They must be paid by a noncorporate resident or U. Amending tax S. Amending tax corporation or by any foreign person if the amounts are effectively connected with the conduct of a U. Amending tax S. Amending tax trade or business. Amending tax For more information, see Internal Revenue Code sections 861(a)(9) and 862(a)(9). Amending tax Personal Services All wages and any other compensation for services performed in the United States are considered to be from sources in the United States. Amending tax The only exceptions to this rule are discussed in chapter 3 under Employees of foreign persons, organizations, or offices, and under Crew members. Amending tax If you are an employee and receive compensation for labor or personal services performed both inside and outside the United States, special rules apply in determining the source of the compensation. Amending tax Compensation (other than certain fringe benefits) is sourced on a time basis. Amending tax Certain fringe benefits (such as housing and education) are sourced on a geographical basis. Amending tax Or, you may be permitted to use an alternative basis to determine the source of compensation. Amending tax See Alternative Basis , later. Amending tax Multi-level marketing. Amending tax   Certain companies sell products through a multi-level marketing arrangement, such that an upper-tier distributor, who has sponsored a lower-tier distributor, is entitled to a payment from the company based on certain activities of that lower-tier distributor. Amending tax Generally, depending on the facts, payments from such multi-level marketing companies to independent (non-employee) distributors (upper-tier distributors) that are based on the sales or purchases of persons whom they have sponsored (lower-tier distributors) constitute income for the performance of personal services in recruiting, training, and supporting the lower-tier distributors. Amending tax The source of such income is generally based on where the services of the upper-tier distributor are performed, and may, depending on the facts, be considered multi-year compensation, with the source of income determined over the period to which such compensation is attributable. Amending tax Self-employed individuals. Amending tax   If you are self-employed, you determine the source of compensation for labor or personal services from self-employment on the basis that most correctly reflects the proper source of that income under the facts and circumstances of your particular case. Amending tax In many cases, the facts and circumstances will call for an apportionment on a time basis as explained next. Amending tax Time Basis Use a time basis to figure your U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source compensation (other than the fringe benefits discussed later). Amending tax Do this by multiplying your total compensation (other than the fringe benefits discussed later) by the following fraction:   Number of days you performed services in the United States during the year     Total number of days you performed services during the year   You can use a unit of time less than a day in the above fraction, if appropriate. Amending tax The time period for which the compensation is made does not have to be a year. Amending tax Instead, you can use another distinct, separate, and continuous time period if you can establish to the satisfaction of the IRS that this other period is more appropriate. Amending tax Example 1. Amending tax Christina Brooks, a resident of the Netherlands, worked 240 days for a U. Amending tax S. Amending tax company during the tax year. Amending tax She received $80,000 in compensation. Amending tax None of it was for fringe benefits. Amending tax Christina performed services in the United States for 60 days and performed services in the Netherlands for 180 days. Amending tax Using the time basis for determining the source of compensation, $20,000 ($80,000 × 60/240) is her U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income. Amending tax Example 2. Amending tax Rob Waters, a resident of South Africa, is employed by a corporation. Amending tax His annual salary is $100,000. Amending tax None of it is for fringe benefits. Amending tax During the first quarter of the year he worked entirely within the United States. Amending tax On April 1, Rob was transferred to Singapore for the remainder of the year. Amending tax Rob is able to establish that the first quarter of the year and the last 3 quarters of the year are two separate, distinct, and continuous periods of time. Amending tax Accordingly, $25,000 of Rob's annual salary is attributable to the first quarter of the year (. Amending tax 25 × $100,000). Amending tax All of it is U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income because he worked entirely within the United States during that quarter. Amending tax The remaining $75,000 is attributable to the last three quarters of the year. Amending tax During those quarters, he worked 150 days in Singapore and 30 days in the United States. Amending tax His periodic performance of services in the United States did not result in distinct, separate, and continuous periods of time. Amending tax Of this $75,000, $12,500 ($75,000 × 30/180) is U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income. Amending tax Multi-year compensation. Amending tax   The source of multi-year compensation is generally determined on a time basis over the period to which the compensation is attributable. Amending tax Multi-year compensation is compensation that is included in your income in one tax year but that is attributable to a period that includes two or more tax years. Amending tax   You determine the period to which the compensation is attributable based on the facts and circumstances of your case. Amending tax For example, an amount of compensation that specifically relates to a period of time that includes several calendar years is attributable to the entire multi-year period. Amending tax   The amount of compensation treated as from U. Amending tax S. Amending tax sources is figured by multiplying the total multi-year compensation by a fraction. Amending tax The numerator of the fraction is the number of days (or unit of time less than a day, if appropriate) that you performed labor or personal services in the United States in connection with the project. Amending tax The denominator of the fraction is the total number of days (or unit of time less than a day, if appropriate) that you performed labor or personal services in connection with the project. Amending tax Geographical Basis Compensation you receive as an employee in the form of the following fringe benefits is sourced on a geographical basis. Amending tax Housing. Amending tax Education. Amending tax Local transportation. Amending tax Tax reimbursement. Amending tax Hazardous or hardship duty pay as defined in Regulations section 1. Amending tax 861-4(b)(2)(ii)(D)(5). Amending tax Moving expense reimbursement. Amending tax The amount of fringe benefits must be reasonable and you must substantiate them by adequate records or by sufficient evidence. Amending tax Principal place of work. Amending tax   The above fringe benefits, except for tax reimbursement and hazardous or hardship duty pay, are sourced based on your principal place of work. Amending tax Your principal place of work is usually the place where you spend most of your working time. Amending tax This could be your office, plant, store, shop, or other location. Amending tax 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. Amending tax   If you have more than one job at any time, your main job location depends on the facts in each case. Amending tax The more important factors to be considered are: The total time you spend at each place, The amount of work you do at each place, and How much money you earn at each place. Amending tax Housing. Amending tax   The source of a housing fringe benefit is determined based on the location of your principal place of work. Amending tax A housing fringe benefit includes payments to you or on your behalf (and your family's if your family resides with you) only for the following. Amending tax Rent. Amending tax Utilities (except telephone charges). Amending tax Real and personal property insurance. Amending tax Occupancy taxes not deductible under section 164 or 216(a). Amending tax Nonrefundable fees for securing a leasehold. Amending tax Rental of furniture and accessories. Amending tax Household repairs. Amending tax Residential parking. Amending tax Fair rental value of housing provided in kind by your employer. Amending tax   A housing fringe benefit does not include: Deductible interest and taxes (including deductible interest and taxes of a tenant-stockholder in a cooperative housing corporation), The cost of buying property, including principal payments on a mortgage, The cost of domestic labor (maids, gardeners, etc. Amending tax ), Pay television subscriptions, Improvements and other expenses that increase the value or appreciably prolong the life of property, Purchased furniture or accessories, Depreciation or amortization of property or improvements, The value of meals or lodging that you exclude from gross income, or The value of meals or lodging that you deduct as moving expenses. Amending tax Education. Amending tax   The source of an education fringe benefit for the education expenses of your dependents is determined based on the location of your principal place of work. Amending tax An education fringe benefit includes payments only for the following expenses for education at an elementary or secondary school. Amending tax Tuition, fees, academic tutoring, special needs services for a special needs student, books, supplies, and other equipment. Amending tax Room and board and uniforms that are required or provided by the school in connection with enrollment or attendance. Amending tax Local transportation. Amending tax   The source of a local transportation fringe benefit is determined based on the location of your principal place of work. Amending tax Your local transportation fringe benefit is the amount that you receive as compensation for local transportation for you or your spouse or dependents at the location of your principal place of work. Amending tax The amount treated as a local transportation fringe benefit is limited to actual expenses incurred for local transportation and the fair rental value of any employer-provided vehicle used predominantly by you, your spouse, or your dependents for local transportation. Amending tax Actual expenses do not include the cost (including interest) of any vehicle purchased by you or on your behalf. Amending tax Tax reimbursement. Amending tax   The source of a tax reimbursement fringe benefit is determined based on the location of the jurisdiction that imposed the tax for which you are reimbursed. Amending tax Moving expense reimbursement. Amending tax   The source of a moving expense reimbursement is generally based on the location of your new principal place of work. Amending tax However, the source is determined based on the location of your former principal place of work if you provide sufficient evidence that such determination of source is more appropriate under the facts and circumstances of your case. Amending tax Sufficient evidence generally requires an agreement between you and your employer, or a written statement of company policy, which is reduced to writing before the move and which is entered into or established to induce you or other employees to move to another country. Amending tax The written statement or agreement must state that your employer will reimburse you for moving expenses that you incur to return to your former principal place of work regardless of whether you continue to work for your employer after returning to that location. Amending tax It may contain certain conditions upon which the right to reimbursement is determined as long as those conditions set forth standards that are definitely ascertainable and can only be fulfilled prior to, or through completion of, your return move to your former principal place of work. Amending tax Alternative Basis If you are an employee, you can determine the source of your compensation under an alternative basis if you establish to the satisfaction of the IRS that, under the facts and circumstances of your case, the alternative basis more properly determines the source of your compensation than the time or geographical basis. Amending tax If you use an alternative basis, you must keep (and have available for inspection) records to document why the alternative basis more properly determines the source of your compensation. Amending tax Also, if your total compensation from all sources is $250,000 or more, check “Yes” to both questions on line K on page 5 of Form 1040NR, and attach a written statement to your tax return that sets forth all of the following. Amending tax Your name and social security number (written across the top of the statement). Amending tax The specific compensation income, or the specific fringe benefit, for which you are using the alternative basis. Amending tax For each item in (2), the alternative basis of allocation of source used. Amending tax For each item in (2), a computation showing how the alternative allocation was computed. Amending tax A comparison of the dollar amount of the U. Amending tax S. Amending tax compensation and foreign compensation sourced under both the alternative basis and the time or geographical basis discussed earlier. Amending tax Transportation Income Transportation income is income from the use of a vessel or aircraft or for the performance of services directly related to the use of any vessel or aircraft. Amending tax This is true whether the vessel or aircraft is owned, hired, or leased. Amending tax The term “vessel or aircraft” includes any container used in connection with a vessel or aircraft. Amending tax All income from transportation that begins and ends in the United States is treated as derived from sources in the United States. Amending tax If the transportation begins or ends in the United States, 50% of the transportation income is treated as derived from sources in the United States. Amending tax For transportation income from personal services, 50% of the income is U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income if the transportation is between the United States and a U. Amending tax S. Amending tax possession. Amending tax For nonresident aliens, this only applies to income derived from, or in connection with, an aircraft. Amending tax For information on how U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source transportation income is taxed, see chapter 4. Amending tax Scholarships, Grants, Prizes, and Awards Generally, the source of scholarships, fellowship grants, grants, prizes, and awards is the residence of the payer regardless of who actually disburses the funds. Amending tax However, see Activities to be performed outside the United States , later. Amending tax For example, payments for research or study in the United States made by the United States, a noncorporate U. Amending tax S. Amending tax resident, or a domestic corporation, are from U. Amending tax S. Amending tax sources. Amending tax Similar payments from a foreign government or foreign corporation are foreign source payments even though the funds may be disbursed through a U. Amending tax S. Amending tax agent. Amending tax Payments made by an entity designated as a public international organization under the International Organizations Immunities Act are from foreign sources. Amending tax Activities to be performed outside the United States. Amending tax   Scholarships, fellowship grants, targeted grants, and achievement awards received by nonresident aliens for activities performed, or to be performed, outside the United States are not U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income. Amending tax    These rules do not apply to amounts paid as salary or other compensation for services. Amending tax See Personal Services, earlier, for the source rules that apply. Amending tax Pensions and Annuities If you receive a pension from a domestic trust for services performed both in and outside the United States, part of the pension payment is from U. Amending tax S. Amending tax sources. Amending tax That part is the amount attributable to earnings of the pension plan and the employer contributions made for services performed in the United States. Amending tax This applies whether the distribution is made under a qualified or nonqualified stock bonus, pension, profit-sharing, or annuity plan (whether or not funded). Amending tax If you performed services as an employee of the United States, you may receive a distribution from the U. Amending tax S. Amending tax Government under a plan, such as the Civil Service Retirement System, that is treated as a qualified pension plan. Amending tax Your U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income is the otherwise taxable amount of the distribution that is attributable to your total U. Amending tax S. Amending tax Government basic pay other than tax-exempt pay for services performed outside the United States. Amending tax Rents or Royalties Your U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income includes rent and royalty income received during the tax year from property located in the United States or from any interest in that property. Amending tax U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income also includes rents or royalties for the use of, or for the privilege of using, in the United States, intangible property such as patents, copyrights, secret processes and formulas, goodwill, trademarks, franchises, and similar property. Amending tax Real Property Real property is land and buildings and generally anything built on, growing on, or attached to land. Amending tax Gross income from sources in the United States includes gains, profits, and income from the sale or other disposition of real property located in the United States. Amending tax Natural resources. Amending tax   The income from the sale of products of any farm, mine, oil or gas well, other natural deposit, or timber located in the United States and sold in a foreign country, or located in a foreign country and sold in the United States, is partly from sources in the United States. Amending tax For information on determining that part, see section 1. Amending tax 863-1(b) of the regulations. Amending tax Table 2-1. Amending tax Summary of Source Rules for Income of Nonresident Aliens Item of income Factor determining source Salaries, wages, other compensation Where services performed Business income:   Personal services Where services performed Sale of inventory—purchased Where sold Sale of inventory—produced Allocation Interest Residence of payer Dividends Whether a U. Amending tax S. Amending tax or foreign corporation* Rents Location of property Royalties:   Natural resources Location of property Patents, copyrights, etc. Amending tax Where property is used Sale of real property Location of property Sale of personal property Seller's tax home (but see Personal Property , later, for exceptions) Pension distributions attributable to contributions Where services were performed that earned the pension Investment earnings on pension contributions Location of pension trust Sale of natural resources Allocation based on fair market value of product at export terminal. Amending tax For more information, see section 1. Amending tax 863-1(b) of the regulations. Amending tax *Exceptions include: a) Dividends paid by a U. Amending tax S. Amending tax corporation are foreign source if the corporation elects the  American Samoa economic development credit. Amending tax  b) Part of a dividend paid by a foreign corporation is U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source if at least 25% of the  corporation's gross income is effectively connected with a U. Amending tax S. Amending tax trade or business for the  3 tax years before the year in which the dividends are declared. Amending tax Personal Property Personal property is property, such as machinery, equipment, or furniture, that is not real property. Amending tax Gain or loss from the sale or exchange of personal property generally has its source in the United States if you have a tax home in the United States. Amending tax If you do not have a tax home in the United States, the gain or loss generally is considered to be from sources outside the United States. Amending tax Tax home. Amending tax   Your tax home is the general area of your main place of business, employment, or post of duty, regardless of where you maintain your family home. Amending tax Your tax home is the place where you permanently or indefinitely work as an employee or a self-employed individual. Amending tax If you do not have a regular or main place of business because of the nature of your work, then your tax home is the place where you regularly live. Amending tax If you do not fit either of these categories, you are considered an itinerant and your tax home is wherever you work. Amending tax Inventory property. Amending tax   Inventory property is personal property that is stock in trade or that is held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of your trade or business. Amending tax Income from the sale of inventory that you purchased is sourced where the property is sold. Amending tax Generally, this is where title to the property passes to the buyer. Amending tax For example, income from the sale of inventory in the United States is U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income, whether you purchased it in the United States or in a foreign country. Amending tax   Income from the sale of inventory property that you produced in the United States and sold outside the United States (or vice versa) is partly from sources in the United States and partly from sources outside the United States. Amending tax For information on making this allocation, see section 1. Amending tax 863-3 of the regulations. Amending tax   These rules apply even if your tax home is not in the United States. Amending tax Depreciable property. Amending tax   To determine the source of any gain from the sale of depreciable personal property, you must first figure the part of the gain that is not more than the total depreciation adjustments on the property. Amending tax You allocate this part of the gain to sources in the United States based on the ratio of U. Amending tax S. Amending tax depreciation adjustments to total depreciation adjustments. Amending tax The rest of this part of the gain is considered to be from sources outside the United States. Amending tax   For this purpose, “U. Amending tax S. Amending tax depreciation adjustments” are the depreciation adjustments to the basis of the property that are allowable in figuring taxable income from U. Amending tax S. Amending tax sources. Amending tax However, if the property is used predominantly in the United States during a tax year, all depreciation deductions allowable for that year are treated as U. Amending tax S. Amending tax depreciation adjustments. Amending tax But there are some exceptions for certain transportation, communications, and other property used internationally. Amending tax   Gain from the sale of depreciable property that is more than the total depreciation adjustments on the property is sourced as if the property were inventory property, as discussed above. Amending tax   A loss is sourced in the same way as the depreciation deductions were sourced. Amending tax However, if the property was used predominantly in the United States, the entire loss reduces U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income. Amending tax   The basis of property usually means the cost (money plus the fair market value of other property or services) of property you acquire. Amending tax Depreciation is an amount deducted to recover the cost or other basis of a trade or business asset. Amending tax The amount you can deduct depends on the property's cost, when you began using the property, how long it will take to recover your cost, and which depreciation method you use. Amending tax A depreciation deduction is any deduction for depreciation or amortization or any other allowable deduction that treats a capital expenditure as a deductible expense. Amending tax Intangible property. Amending tax   Intangible property includes patents, copyrights, secret processes or formulas, goodwill, trademarks, trade names, or other like property. Amending tax The gain from the sale of amortizable or depreciable intangible property, up to the previously allowable amortization or depreciation deductions, is sourced in the same way as the original deductions were sourced. Amending tax This is the same as the source rule for gain from the sale of depreciable property. Amending tax See Depreciable property , earlier, for details on how to apply this rule. Amending tax   Gain in excess of the amortization or depreciation deductions is sourced in the country where the property is used if the income from the sale is contingent on the productivity, use, or disposition of that property. Amending tax If the income is not contingent on the productivity, use, or disposition of the property, the income is sourced according to your tax home as discussed earlier. Amending tax If payments for goodwill do not depend on its productivity, use, or disposition, their source is the country in which the goodwill was generated. Amending tax Sales through offices or fixed places of business. Amending tax   Despite any of the earlier rules, if you do not have a tax home in the United States, but you maintain an office or other fixed place of business in the United States, treat the income from any sale of personal property (including inventory property) that is attributable to that office or place of business as U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income. Amending tax However, this rule does not apply to sales of inventory property for use, disposition, or consumption outside the United States if your office or other fixed place of business outside the United States materially participated in the sale. Amending tax   If you have a tax home in the United States but maintain an office or other fixed place of business outside the United States, income from sales of personal property, other than inventory, depreciable property, or intangibles, that is attributable to that foreign office or place of business may be treated as U. Amending tax S. Amending tax source income. Amending tax The income is treated as U. Amending tax S.
