Free military turbotax Manufacturer. Free military turbotax   The term “manufacturer” includes a producer or importer. Free military turbotax A manufacturer is any person who produces a taxable article from new or raw material, or from scrap, salvage, or junk material, by processing or changing the form of an article or by combining or assembling two or more articles. Free military turbotax If you furnish the materials and keep title to those materials and to the finished article, you are considered the manufacturer even though another person actually manufactures the taxable article. Free military turbotax   A manufacturer who sells a taxable article in knockdown (unassembled) condition is liable for the tax. Free military turbotax The person who buys these component parts and assembles a taxable article may also be liable for tax as a further manufacturer depending on the labor, material, and overhead required to assemble the completed article if the article is assembled for business use. Free military turbotax Importer. Free military turbotax   An importer is a person who brings a taxable article into the United States, or withdraws a taxable article from a customs bonded warehouse for sale or use in the United States. Free military turbotax Sale. Free military turbotax   A sale is the transfer of the title to, or the substantial incidents of ownership in, an article to a buyer for consideration that may consist of money, services, or other things. Free military turbotax Use considered sale. Free military turbotax   A manufacturer who uses a taxable article is liable for the tax in the same manner as if it were sold. Free military turbotax Lease considered sale. Free military turbotax   The lease of an article (including any renewal or extension of the lease) by the manufacturer is generally considered a taxable sale. Free military turbotax However, for the gas guzzler tax, only the first lease (excluding any renewal or extension) of the automobile by the manufacturer is considered a sale. Free military turbotax Manufacturers taxes based on sale price. Free military turbotax   The manufacturers taxes imposed on the sale of sport fishing equipment, electric outboard motors, and bows are based on the sale price of the article. Free military turbotax The taxes imposed on coal are based either on the sale price or the weight. Free military turbotax   The price for which an article is sold includes the total consideration paid for the article, whether that consideration is in the form of money, services, or other things. Free military turbotax However, you include certain charges made when a taxable article is sold and you exclude others. Free military turbotax To figure the price on which you base the tax, use the following rules. Free military turbotax Include both the following charges in the price. Free military turbotax Any charge for coverings or containers (regardless of their nature). Free military turbotax Any charge incident to placing the article in a condition packed ready for shipment. Free military turbotax Exclude all the following amounts from the price. Free military turbotax The manufacturers excise tax, whether or not it is stated as a separate charge. Free military turbotax The transportation charges pursuant to the sale. Free military turbotax The cost of transportation of goods to a warehouse before their bona fide sale is not excludable. Free military turbotax Delivery, insurance, installation, retail dealer preparation charges, and other charges you incur in placing the article in the hands of the purchaser under a bona fide sale. Free military turbotax Discounts, rebates, and similar allowances actually granted to the purchaser. Free military turbotax Local advertising charges. Free military turbotax A charge made separately when the article is sold and that qualifies as a charge for “local advertising” may, within certain limits, be excluded from the sale price. Free military turbotax Charges for warranty paid at the purchaser's option. Free military turbotax However, a charge for a warranty of an article that the manufacturer requires the purchaser to pay to obtain the article is included in the sale price on which the tax is figured. Free military turbotax Bonus goods. Free military turbotax   Allocate the sale price if you give free nontaxable goods with the purchase of taxable merchandise. Free military turbotax Figure the tax only on the sale price attributable to the taxable articles. Free military turbotax Example. Free military turbotax A manufacturer sells a quantity of taxable articles and gives the purchaser certain nontaxable articles as a bonus. Free military turbotax The sale price of the shipment is $1,500. Free military turbotax The normal sale price is $2,000: $1,500 for the taxable articles and $500 for the nontaxable articles. Free military turbotax Since the taxable items represent 75% of the normal sale price, the tax is based on 75% of the actual sale price, or $1,125 (75% of $1,500). Free military turbotax The remaining $375 is allocated to the nontaxable articles. Free military turbotax Taxable Event Tax attaches when the title to the article sold passes from the manufacturer to the buyer. Free military turbotax When the title passes depends on the intention of the parties as gathered from the contract of sale. Free military turbotax In the absence of expressed intention, the legal rules of presumption followed in the jurisdiction where the sale occurs determine when title passes. Free military turbotax If the taxable article is used by the manufacturer, the tax attaches at the time use begins. Free military turbotax The manufacturer is liable for the tax. Free military turbotax Partial payments. Free military turbotax   The tax applies to each partial payment received when taxable articles are: Leased, Sold conditionally, Sold on installment with chattel mortgage, or Sold on installment with title to pass in the future. Free military turbotax To figure the tax, multiply the partial payment by the tax rate in effect at the time of the payment. Free military turbotax Exemptions The following sales by the manufacturer are exempt from the manufacturers tax. Free military turbotax Sale of an article to a state or local government for the exclusive use of the state or local government. Free military turbotax This exemption does not apply to the taxes on coal, gas guzzlers, and vaccines. Free military turbotax State is defined in Definitions in chapter 1.

Free military turbotax In figuring the selling price for applying the tax, the point of sale is f. Free military turbotax o. Free military turbotax b. Free military turbotax (free on board) mine or f. Free military turbotax o. Free military turbotax b. Free military turbotax cleaning plant if you clean the coal before selling it. Free military turbotax This applies even if you sell the coal for a delivered price. Free military turbotax The f. Free military turbotax o. Free military turbotax b. Free military turbotax mine or f. Free military turbotax o. Free military turbotax b. Free military turbotax cleaning plant is the point at which you figure the number of tons sold for applying the applicable tonnage rate, and the point at which you figure the sale price for applying the 4. Free military turbotax 4% rate. Free military turbotax   The tax applies to the full amount of coal sold. Free military turbotax However, the IRS allows a calculated reduction of the taxable weight of the coal for the weight of the moisture in excess of the coal's inherent moisture content. Free military turbotax Include in the sale price any additional charge for a freeze-conditioning additive in figuring the tax. Free military turbotax   Do not include in the sales price the excise tax imposed on coal. Free military turbotax Coal used by the producer. Free military turbotax   The tax on coal applies if the coal is used by the producer in other than a mining process. Free military turbotax A mining process means the same for this purpose as for percentage depletion. Free military turbotax For example, the tax does not apply if, before selling the coal, you break it, clean it, size it, or apply any other process considered mining under the rules for depletion. Free military turbotax In this case, the tax applies only when you sell the coal.

Free military turbotax Base your constructive sale price on sales of a like kind and grade of coal by you or other producers made f. Free military turbotax o. Free military turbotax b. Free military turbotax mine or cleaning plant. Free military turbotax Normally, you use the same constructive price used to figure your percentage depletion deduction. Free military turbotax Blending. Free military turbotax   If you blend surface-mined coal with underground-mined coal during the cleaning process, you must figure the excise tax on the sale of the blended, cleaned coal. Free military turbotax Figure the tax separately for each type of coal in the blend. Free military turbotax Base the tax on the amount of each type in the blend if you can determine the proportion of each type of coal contained in the final blend. Free military turbotax Base the tax on the ratio of each type originally put into the cleaning process if you cannot determine the proportion of each type of coal in the blend. Free military turbotax However, the tax is limited to 4. Free military turbotax 4% of the sale price per ton of the blended coal. Free military turbotax Exemption from tax. Free military turbotax   The tax does not apply to sales of lignite and imported coal. Free military turbotax The only other exemption from the tax on the sale of coal is for coal exported as discussed next. Free military turbotax Exported. Free military turbotax   The tax does not apply to the sale of coal if the coal is in the stream of export when sold by the producer and the coal is actually exported. Free military turbotax   Coal is in the stream of export when sold by the producer if the sale is a step in the exportation of the coal to its ultimate destination in a foreign country. Free military turbotax For example, coal is in the stream of export when: The coal is loaded on an export vessel and title is transferred from the producer to a foreign purchaser, or The producer sells the coal to an export broker in the United States under terms of a contract showing that the coal is to be shipped to a foreign country.

Prevent and Report Identity Theft

Learn how to prevent and report identity theft.


Tips for Preventing Identity Theft

Identity thieves steal your personal information to commit fraud. They can damage your credit status and cost you time and money restoring your good name. To reduce your risk of becoming a victim, follow the tips below:

  • Don't carry your Social Security card in your wallet or write it on your checks. Only give out your SSN when absolutely necessary.
  • Protect your PIN. Never write a PIN on a credit/debit card or on a slip of paper kept in your wallet.
  • Watch out for "shoulder surfers". Use your free hand to shield the keypad when using pay phones and ATMs.
  • Collect mail promptly. Ask the post office to put your mail on hold when you are away from home for more than a day or two.
  • Pay attention to your billing cycles. If bills or financial statements are late, contact the sender.
  • Keep your receipts. Ask for carbons and incorrect charge slips as well. Promptly compare receipts with account statements. Watch for unauthorized transactions.
  • Tear up or shred unwanted receipts, credit offers, account statements, expired cards, etc., to prevent dumpster divers getting your personal information.
  • Store personal information in a safe place at home and at work. Don't leave it lying around.
  • Don't respond to unsolicited requests for personal information in the mail, over the phone or online.
  • Install firewalls and virus-detection software on your home computer.
  • Check your credit report once a year. Check it more frequently if you suspect someone has gotten access to your account information.

How to Report Identity Theft

Your wallet contains some of your most important personal items, from hard-earned money to credit cards and driver’s license. For an identity thief, your wallet offers a treasure trove of personal information. If you suspect or become a victim of identity theft, follow these steps:

  • Report it to your financial institution. Call the phone number on your account statement or on the back of your credit or debit card.
  • Report the fraud to your local police immediately. Keep a copy of the police report, which will make it easier to prove your case to creditors and retailers.
  • Contact the credit-reporting bureaus and ask them to flag your account with a fraud alert, which asks merchants not to grant new credit without your approval.

If your identity has been stolen, you can use an ID Theft affidavit to report the theft to most of the parties involved. All three credit bureaus and many major creditors have agreed to accept the affidavit. You can download the ID theft affidavit or request a copy by calling toll-free 1-877-ID-THEFT (438-4338). You can also file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.

Use this helpful infographic (PDF) to help you remember the steps to take if your wallet or identity have been stolen.
