How to file back taxes   Generally, includible compensation for your most recent year of service is the amount of taxable wages and benefits you received from the employer that maintained a 403(b) account for your benefit during your most recent year of service. How to file back taxes When figuring your includible compensation for your most recent year of service, keep in mind that your most recent year of service may not be the same as your employer's most recent annual work period. How to file back taxes This can happen if your tax year is not the same as your employer's annual work period. How to file back taxes When figuring includible compensation for your most recent year of service, do not mix compensation or service of one employer with compensation or service of another employer.

How to file back taxes Tax year different from employer's annual work period.

How to file back taxes Example. How to file back taxes A professor who reports her income on a calendar-year basis is employed on a full-time basis by a university that operates on an academic year (October through May). How to file back taxes To figure her includible compensation for 2013, the professor's most recent year of service is her service from January through May 2013 and from October through December 2013. How to file back taxes Figuring Your Most Recent Year of Service To figure your most recent year of service, begin by determining what is a full year of service for your position.

How to file back taxes   If you are a part-time or a full-time employee who is employed for only part of the year, your most recent year of service is your service this year and your service for as many previous years as is necessary to total 1 full year of service. How to file back taxes To determine your most recent year of service, add the following periods of service: Your service during the year for which you are figuring the limit on annual additions, and Your service during your preceding tax years until the total service equals 1 year of service or you have figured all of your service with the employer. How to file back taxes Example. How to file back taxes You were employed on a full-time basis from July through December 2011 (1/2 year of service), July through December 2012 (1/2 year of service), and October through December 2013 (1/4 year of service). How to file back taxes Your most recent year of service for computing your limit on annual additions for 2013 is the total of your service during 2013 (1/4 year of service), your service during 2012 (1/2 year of service), and your service during the months October through December 2011 (1/4 year of service). How to file back taxes Not yet employed for 1 year. How to file back taxes   If, at the close of the year, you have not yet worked for your employer for 1 year (including time you worked for the same employer in all earlier years), use the period of time you have worked for the employer as your most recent year of service.

How to file back taxes The value of your life insurance contract, which is the amount payable upon your death.

How to file back taxes Your cash value in the contract at the end of the first year is zero. How to file back taxes Your current life insurance protection for the first year is $10,000 ($10,000 − 0).

How to file back taxes 07 Figuring Includible Compensation for Your Most Recent Year of Service You can use Worksheet B in chapter 9 to determine your includible compensation for your most recent year of service. How to file back taxes Example. How to file back taxes Floyd has been periodically working full-time for a local hospital since September 2011. How to file back taxes He needs to figure his limit on annual additions for 2014. How to file back taxes The hospital's normal annual work period for employees in Floyd's general type of work runs from January to December. How to file back taxes During the periods that Floyd was employed with the hospital, the hospital has always been eligible to provide a 403(b) plan to employees. How to file back taxes Additionally, the hospital has never provided the employees with a 457 deferred compensation plan, a transportation fringe benefit plan, or a cafeteria plan. How to file back taxes Floyd has never worked abroad and there is no life insurance provided under the plan. How to file back taxes Table 3-3 shows the service Floyd provided to his employer, his compensation for the periods worked, his elective deferrals, and his taxable wages. How to file back taxes Table 3-3. How to file back taxes Floyd's Compensation Note. How to file back taxes This table shows information Floyd will use to figure includible compensation for his most recent year of service. How to file back taxes   Year Years of Service Taxable Wages Elective Deferrals 2014 6/12 of  a year $42,000 $2,000 2013 4/12 of  a year $16,000 $1,650 2012 4/12 of  a year $16,000 $1,650 Before Floyd can figure his limit on annual additions, he must figure includible compensation for his most recent year of service. How to file back taxes Because Floyd is not planning to work the entire 2014 year, his most recent year of service will include the time he is planning to work in 2014 plus time he worked in the preceding 3 years until the time he worked for the hospital totals 1 year. How to file back taxes If the total time he worked is less than 1 year, Floyd will treat it as if it were 1 year. How to file back taxes He figures his most recent year of service shown in the following list. How to file back taxes Time he will work in 2014 is 6/12 of a year. How to file back taxes Time worked in 2013 is 4/12 of a year. How to file back taxes All of this time will be used to determine Floyd's most recent year of service. How to file back taxes Time worked in 2012 is 4/12 of a year. How to file back taxes Floyd only needs 2 months of the 4 months he worked in 2012 to have enough time to total 1 full year. How to file back taxes Because he needs only one-half of the actual time he worked, Floyd will use only one-half of his income earned during that period to calculate wages that will be used in figuring his includible compensation. How to file back taxes Using the information provided in Table 3-3, wages for Floyd's most recent year of service are $66,000 ($42,000 + $16,000 + $8,000). How to file back taxes His includible compensation for his most recent year of service is figured as shown in Table 3-4. How to file back taxes After figuring his includible compensation, Floyd determines his limit on annual additions for 2014 to be $52,000, the lesser of his includible compensation, $70,475 (Table 3-4), and the maximum amount of $52,000.

  • Car-Crash Scams on the Rise
    Gangs of thieves stage accidents, fake injuries and then collect millions in fraudulent insurance claims. The criminals usually work in groups to stage the accidents and make fraudulent insurance claims. A typical scam might include paid witnesses, several drivers, passengers who will claim injuries, and medical providers who will make false claims for the treatment. Questionable insurance claims from such staged crashes are on the rise, the National Insurance Crime Bureau reported this week, up 46% from 2007 to 2009. Florida leads the list of states with the highest number of claims from staged accidents in the three years (3,006), followed by New York (1,680), California (1,619), Texas (792) and Illinois (433).
  • No-Fault Insurance Fraud in New York State is Ramping Up Premiums
    Fraud is driving up the cost of auto insurance for New York State drivers, particularly those who live in New York City's five boroughs and its neighboring suburbs.
