Free h & r block tax filing Head of household. Free h & r block tax filing   You can file as head of household and qualify to take the credit, even if your spouse lived with you during the first 6 months of the year, if you meet certain tests. Free h & r block tax filing See Head of Household in chapter 2 for the tests you must meet. Free h & r block tax filing Under Age 65 If you are under age 65 at the end of 2013, you can qualify for the credit only if you are retired on permanent and total disability (discussed next) and have taxable disability income (discussed later under Disability income ).

Free h & r block tax filing Even if you do not retire formally, you may be considered retired on disability when you have stopped working because of your disability. Free h & r block tax filing If you retired on disability before 1977, and were not permanently and totally disabled at the time, you can qualify for the credit if you were permanently and totally disabled on January 1, 1976, or January 1, 1977. Free h & r block tax filing Permanent and total disability. Free h & r block tax filing    You are permanently and totally disabled if you cannot engage in any substantial gainful activity because of your physical or mental condition. Free h & r block tax filing A qualified physician must certify that the condition has lasted or can be expected to last continuously for 12 months or more, or that the condition can be expected to result in death. Free h & r block tax filing See Physician's statement , later. Free h & r block tax filing Substantial gainful activity. Free h & r block tax filing   Substantial gainful activity is the performance of significant duties over a reasonable period of time while working for pay or profit, or in work generally done for pay or profit. Free h & r block tax filing Full-time work (or part-time work done at your employer's convenience) in a competitive work situation for at least the minimum wage conclusively shows that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Free h & r block tax filing   Substantial gainful activity is not work you do to take care of yourself or your home. Free h & r block tax filing It is not unpaid work on hobbies, institutional therapy or training, school attendance, clubs, social programs, and similar activities. Free h & r block tax filing However, doing this kind of work may show that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Free h & r block tax filing    The fact that you have not worked for some time is not, of itself, conclusive evidence that you cannot engage in substantial gainful activity. Free h & r block tax filing Sheltered employment. Free h & r block tax filing   Certain work offered at qualified locations to physically or mentally impaired persons is considered sheltered employment. Free h & r block tax filing These qualified locations are in sheltered workshops, hospitals, and similar institutions, homebound programs, and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) sponsored homes. Free h & r block tax filing   Compared to commercial employment, pay is lower for sheltered employment. Free h & r block tax filing Therefore, one usually does not look for sheltered employment if he or she can get other employment. Free h & r block tax filing The fact that one has accepted sheltered employment is not proof of the person's ability to engage in substantial gainful activity. Free h & r block tax filing Physician's statement. Free h & r block tax filing   If you are under age 65, you must have your physician complete a statement certifying that you were permanently and totally disabled on the date you retired. Free h & r block tax filing You can use the statement in the Instructions for Schedule R. Free h & r block tax filing    Figure 33-A. Free h & r block tax filing Are You a Qualified Individual? This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. Free h & r block tax filing Please click the link to view the image. Free h & r block tax filing Figure 33-A Are You a Qualified Individual?   You do not have to file this statement with your Form 1040 or Form 1040A, but you must keep it for your records. Free h & r block tax filing Veterans. Free h & r block tax filing   If the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) certifies that you are permanently and totally disabled, you can substitute VA Form 21-0172, Certification of Permanent and Total Disability, for the physician's statement you are required to keep. Free h & r block tax filing VA Form 21-0172 must be signed by a person authorized by the VA to do so. Free h & r block tax filing You can get this form from your local VA regional office. Free h & r block tax filing Physician's statement obtained in earlier year. Free h & r block tax filing   If you got a physician's statement in an earlier year and, due to your continued disabled condition, you were unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity during 2013, you may not need to get another physician's statement for 2013. Free h & r block tax filing For a detailed explanation of the conditions you must meet, see the instructions for Schedule R, Part II. Free h & r block tax filing If you meet the required conditions, check the box on your Schedule R, Part II, line 2. Free h & r block tax filing   If you checked box 4, 5, or 6 in Part I of Schedule R, enter in the space above the box on line 2 in Part II the first name(s) of the spouse(s) for whom the box is checked.

Free h & r block tax filing Disability income. Free h & r block tax filing   If you are under age 65, you must also have taxable disability income to qualify for the credit. Free h & r block tax filing Disability income must meet both of the following requirements. Free h & r block tax filing It must be paid under your employer's accident or health plan or pension plan. Free h & r block tax filing It must be included in your income as wages (or payments instead of wages) for the time you are absent from work because of permanent and total disability. Free h & r block tax filing Payments that are not disability income. Free h & r block tax filing   Any payment you receive from a plan that does not provide for disability retirement is not disability income. Free h & r block tax filing Any lump-sum payment for accrued annual leave that you receive when you retire on disability is a salary payment and is not disability income. Free h & r block tax filing   For purposes of the credit for the elderly or the disabled, disability income does not include amounts you receive after you reach mandatory retirement age. Free h & r block tax filing Mandatory retirement age is the age set by your employer at which you would have had to retire, had you not become disabled. Free h & r block tax filing Income Limits To determine if you can claim the credit, you must consider two income limits. Free h & r block tax filing The first limit is the amount of your adjusted gross income (AGI). Free h & r block tax filing The second limit is the amount of nontaxable social security and other nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income you received. Free h & r block tax filing The limits are shown in Table 33-1. Free h & r block tax filing If your AGI and nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are less than the income limits, you may be able to claim the credit. Free h & r block tax filing See How to Claim the Credit , later. Free h & r block tax filing If either your AGI or your nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are equal to or more than the income limits, you cannot take the credit. Free h & r block tax filing How to Claim the Credit You can figure the credit yourself or the Internal Revenue Service will figure it for you. Free h & r block tax filing Credit Figured for You If you choose to have the IRS figure the credit for you, read the following discussion for the form you will file (Form 1040 or 1040A).

Free h & r block tax filing 5. Free h & r block tax filing   Ministers and Church Employees Table of Contents Alternative Limit for Church Employees Changes to Includible Compensation for Most Recent Year of ServiceChanges to Includible Compensation Changes to Years of Service Self-employed ministers and church employees who participate in 403(b) plans generally follow the same rules as other 403(b) plan participants. Free h & r block tax filing This means that if you are a self-employed minister or a church employee, your MAC generally is the lesser of: Your limit on annual additions, or Your limit on elective deferrals.

Free h & r block tax filing Although, in general, the same limit applies, church employees can choose an alternative limit and there are changes in how church employees, foreign missionaries, and self-employed ministers figure includible compensation for the most recent year of service. Free h & r block tax filing This chapter will explain the alternative limit and the changes. Free h & r block tax filing Who is a church employee?   A church employee is anyone who is an employee of a church or a convention or association of churches, including an employee of a tax-exempt organization controlled by or associated with a church or a convention or association of churches.

Free h & r block tax filing Changes to Includible Compensation for Most Recent Year of Service There are two types of changes in determining includible compensation for the most recent year of service. Free h & r block tax filing They are: Changes in how the includible compensation of foreign missionaries and self-employed ministers is figured, and A change to the years that are counted when figuring the most recent year of service for church employees and self-employed ministers.

Free h & r block tax filing Foreign missionary. Free h & r block tax filing   If you are a foreign missionary, your includible compensation includes foreign earned income that may otherwise be excludable from your gross income under section 911. Free h & r block tax filing   If you are a foreign missionary, and your adjusted gross income is $17,000 or less, contributions to your 403(b) account will not be treated as exceeding the limit on annual additions if the contributions are not in excess of $3,000.
