Free 2012 federal tax filing (See Filing Requirement if Possession Income Is Excluded in chapter 4.

Free 2012 federal tax filing See Bona Fide Resident of American Samoa in chapter 3. Free 2012 federal tax filing Completing Form 4563. Free 2012 federal tax filing   John enters his name and social security number at the top of the form. Free 2012 federal tax filing Line 1. Free 2012 federal tax filing   On Form 4563 (see later), John enters the date his bona fide residence began in American Samoa, June 2, 2012.

Free 2012 federal tax filing S. Free 2012 federal tax filing corporation, but he will enter that amount only on his Form 1040 because the U. Free 2012 federal tax filing S. Free 2012 federal tax filing dividends do not qualify for the possession exclusion. Free 2012 federal tax filing Line 15. Free 2012 federal tax filing   John totals the amounts on lines 7 and 9 to get the amount he can exclude from his gross income in 2013.

Free 2012 federal tax filing She was not a bona fide resident of Guam during 2013. Free 2012 federal tax filing Tracy completes Form 1040 (not illustrated), reporting her worldwide income. Free 2012 federal tax filing 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. Free 2012 federal tax filing All amounts reported on Form 5074 are also reported on her Form 1040. Free 2012 federal tax filing See U. Free 2012 federal tax filing S.

Free 2012 federal tax filing The Morenos file their Form 1040, attaching Form 8689 and all other schedules, with the Internal Revenue Service.

Free 2012 federal tax filing The Morenos' total USVI income of $6,700 is entered on line 16. Free 2012 federal tax filing Part II. Free 2012 federal tax filing   The Morenos have no adjustments to their USVI income, so they enter zero (-0-) on line 28, and $6,700 on line 29. Free 2012 federal tax filing Their USVI adjusted gross income (AGI) is $6,700. Free 2012 federal tax filing Part III. Free 2012 federal tax filing   On line 30, the Morenos enter the amount from Form 1040, line 61 ($4,539). Free 2012 federal tax filing 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. Free 2012 federal tax filing   The Morenos enter their worldwide AGI, $54,901 (Form 1040, line 38), on line 33. Free 2012 federal tax filing Next, they find what percentage of their AGI is from USVI sources ($6,700 ÷ $54,901 = 0. Free 2012 federal tax filing 122) and enter that as a decimal on line 34. Free 2012 federal tax filing They then apply that percentage to the U. Free 2012 federal tax filing S. Free 2012 federal tax filing tax entered on line 32 to find the amount of U. Free 2012 federal tax filing S. Free 2012 federal tax filing tax allocated to USVI income ($4,539 x 0. Free 2012 federal tax filing 122 = $554), and enter that amount on line 35. Free 2012 federal tax filing Part IV. Free 2012 federal tax filing   Part IV is used to show payments of income tax to the USVI only. Free 2012 federal tax filing The Morenos had no tax withheld by the U. Free 2012 federal tax filing S. Free 2012 federal tax filing Virgin Islands, but made estimated tax payments to the USVI of $400, which they entered on lines 37 and 39. Free 2012 federal tax filing They include this amount ($400) in the total payments on Form 1040, line 72. Free 2012 federal tax filing On the dotted line next to the entry space for line 72, they enter “Form 8689” and show the amount. Free 2012 federal tax filing The Morenos do not complete Form 1116 because they receive credit on Form 1040, line 72, for the tax paid to the USVI.
