Income tax ez form For more information, see Publication 501, Exemptions, Standard Deduction, and Filing Information. Income tax ez form Figure A. Income tax ez form Are You a Qualified Individual? Please click here for the text description of the image. Income tax ez form figure a 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 ). Income tax ez form You are retired on permanent and total disability if: You were permanently and totally disabled when you retired, and You retired on disability before the close of the tax year. Income tax ez form Even if you do not retire formally, you may be considered retired on disability when you have stopped working because of your disability. Income tax ez form 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. Income tax ez form You are considered to be under age 65 at the end of 2013 if you were born after January 1, 1949. Income tax ez form Permanent and total disability. Income tax ez form    You are permanently and totally disabled if you cannot engage in any substantial gainful activity because of your physical or mental condition. Income tax ez form 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. Income tax ez form See Physician's statement , later. Income tax ez form Substantial gainful activity. Income tax ez form   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. Income tax ez form 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. Income tax ez form   Substantial gainful activity is not work you do to take care of yourself or your home. Income tax ez form It is not unpaid work on hobbies, institutional therapy or training, school attendance, clubs, social programs, and similar activities. Income tax ez form However, doing this kind of work may show that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Income tax ez form    The fact that you have not worked for some time is not, of itself, conclusive evidence that you cannot engage in substantial gainful activity. Income tax ez form   The following examples illustrate the tests of substantial gainful activity. Income tax ez form Example 1. Income tax ez form Trisha, a sales clerk, retired on disability. Income tax ez form She is 53 years old and now works as a full-time babysitter for the minimum wage. Income tax ez form Even though Trisha is doing different work, she is able to do the duties of her new job in a full-time competitive work situation for the minimum wage. Income tax ez form She cannot take the credit because she is able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Income tax ez form Example 2. Income tax ez form Tom, a bookkeeper, retired on disability. Income tax ez form He is 59 years old and now drives a truck for a charitable organization. Income tax ez form He sets his own hours and is not paid. Income tax ez form Duties of this nature generally are performed for pay or profit. Income tax ez form Some weeks he works 10 hours, and some weeks he works 40 hours. Income tax ez form Over the year he averages 20 hours a week. Income tax ez form The kind of work and his average hours a week conclusively show that Tom is able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Income tax ez form This is true even though Tom is not paid and he sets his own hours. Income tax ez form He cannot take the credit. Income tax ez form Example 3. Income tax ez form John, who retired on disability, took a job with a former employer on a trial basis. Income tax ez form The purpose of the job was to see if John could do the work. Income tax ez form The trial period lasted for 6 months during which John was paid the minimum wage. Income tax ez form Because of John's disability, he was assigned only light duties of a nonproductive “make-work” nature. Income tax ez form The activity was gainful because John was paid at least the minimum wage. Income tax ez form But the activity was not substantial because his duties were nonproductive. Income tax ez form These facts do not, by themselves, show that John is able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Income tax ez form Example 4. Income tax ez form Joan, who retired on disability from a job as a bookkeeper, lives with her sister who manages several motel units. Income tax ez form Joan helps her sister for 1 or 2 hours a day by performing duties such as washing dishes, answering phones, registering guests, and bookkeeping. Income tax ez form Joan can select the time of day when she feels most fit to work. Income tax ez form Work of this nature, performed off and on during the day at Joan's convenience, is not activity of a “substantial and gainful” nature even if she is paid for the work. Income tax ez form The performance of these duties does not, of itself, show that Joan is able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Income tax ez form Sheltered employment. Income tax ez form   Certain work offered at qualified locations to physically or mentally impaired persons is considered sheltered employment. Income tax ez form These qualified locations are in sheltered workshops, hospitals and similar institutions, homebound programs, and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) sponsored homes. Income tax ez form   Compared to commercial employment, pay is lower for sheltered employment. Income tax ez form Therefore, one usually does not look for sheltered employment if he or she can get other employment. Income tax ez form The fact that one has accepted sheltered employment is not proof of the person's ability to engage in substantial gainful activity. Income tax ez form Physician's statement. Income tax ez form   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. Income tax ez form You can use the statement in the Instructions for Schedule R. Income tax ez form   You do not have to file this statement with your Form 1040 or Form 1040A, but you must keep it for your records. Income tax ez form Veterans. Income tax ez form    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. Income tax ez form VA Form 21-0172 must be signed by a person authorized by the VA to do so. Income tax ez form You can get this form from your local VA regional office. Income tax ez form Physician's statement obtained in earlier year. Income tax ez form   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. Income tax ez form For a detailed explanation of the conditions you must meet, see the instructions for Schedule R, Part II. Income tax ez form If you meet the required conditions, check the box on your Schedule R, Part II, line 2. Income tax ez form   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. Income tax ez form Disability income. Income tax ez form   If you are under age 65, you must also have taxable disability income to qualify for the credit. Income tax ez form Disability income must meet both of the following requirements. Income tax ez form It must be paid under your employer's accident or health plan or pension plan. Income tax ez form 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. Income tax ez form Payments that are not disability income. Income tax ez form    Any payment you receive from a plan that does not provide for disability retirement is not disability income. Income tax ez form 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. Income tax ez form    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. Income tax ez form Mandatory retirement age is the age set by your employer at which you would have had to retire, had you not become disabled. Income tax ez form Income Limits To determine if you can claim the credit, you must consider two income limits. Income tax ez form The first limit is the amount of your adjusted gross income (AGI). Income tax ez form The second limit is the amount of nontaxable social security and other nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income you received. Income tax ez form The limits are shown in Table 1. Income tax ez form If your AGI and your nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are less than the income limits, you may be able to claim the credit. Income tax ez form See Figuring the Credit Yourself , later. Income tax ez form Table 1. Income tax ez form Income Limits IF your filing status is THEN, even if you qualify (see Figure A), you CANNOT take the credit if   Your adjusted gross income (AGI)* is equal to or more than. Income tax ez form . Income tax ez form .

Income tax ez form If your AGI or your nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are equal to or more than the income limits, you cannot take the credit. Income tax ez form Credit Figured for You You can figure the credit yourself, or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will figure it for you. Income tax ez form See Figuring the Credit Yourself , next. Income tax ez form If you can take the credit and you want the IRS to figure the credit for you, attach Schedule R to your return. Income tax ez form Check the appropriate box in Part I of Schedule R and fill in Part II and lines 11, 13a, and 13b of Part III, if they apply to you. Income tax ez form If you file Form 1040A, enter “CFE” in the space to the left of Form 1040A, line 30. Income tax ez form If you file Form 1040, check box c on Form 1040, line 53, and enter “CFE” on the line next to that box. Income tax ez form Attach Schedule R to your return.

Income tax ez form     2 Amount cannot be more than your combined taxable disability income. Income tax ez form     3 Amount is $5,000 plus the taxable disability income of the spouse under age 65, but not more than $7,500. Income tax ez form   Figuring the Credit Yourself If you figure the credit yourself, fill out the front of Schedule R. Income tax ez form Next, fill out Schedule R, Part III. Income tax ez form If you file Form 1040A, enter the amount from Schedule R, line 22 on line 30. Income tax ez form If you file Form 1040, include the amount from Schedule R, line 22 on line 53, check box c, and enter “Sch R” on the line next to that box. Income tax ez form There are five steps in Part III to determine the amount of your credit. Income tax ez form Determine your initial amount (lines 10–12). Income tax ez form Determine the total of any nontaxable social security and certain other nontaxable pensions, annuities, and disability benefits you received (lines 13a, 13b, and 13c). Income tax ez form Determine your excess adjusted gross income (lines 14–17). Income tax ez form Determine the total of steps 2 and 3 (line 18). Income tax ez form Determine your credit (lines 19–22). Income tax ez form These steps are discussed in more detail next. Income tax ez form Step 1. Income tax ez form Determine Initial Amount To figure the credit, you must first determine your initial amount using lines 10 through 12. Income tax ez form See Table 2. Income tax ez form Your initial amount is on line 12. Income tax ez form Initial amounts for persons under age 65. Income tax ez form   If you are a qualified individual under age 65, your initial amount cannot be more than your taxable disability income. Income tax ez form Special rules for joint returns. Income tax ez form   If you are a qualified individual under age 65, and your spouse is also a qualified individual, your initial amount is your taxable disability income plus $5,000. Income tax ez form   If you are a qualified individual, and both you and your spouse are under age 65, your initial amount cannot be more than your combined taxable disability income. Income tax ez form Step 2. Income tax ez form Total Certain Nontaxable Pensions and Benefits Step 2 is to figure the total amount of nontaxable social security and certain other nontaxable payments you received during the year. Income tax ez form You must reduce your initial amount by these payments. Income tax ez form Enter these nontaxable payments on lines 13a or 13b and total them on line 13c. Income tax ez form If you are married filing jointly, you must enter the combined amount of nontaxable payments both you and your spouse received. Income tax ez form Worksheets are provided in the instructions for Forms 1040 and 1040A to help you determine if any of your social security benefits (or equivalent railroad retirement benefits) are taxable. Income tax ez form Include the following nontaxable payments in the amounts you enter on lines 13a and 13b. Income tax ez form Nontaxable social security payments. Income tax ez form This is the nontaxable part of the benefits shown in box 5 of Form SSA-1099, Social Security Benefit Statement, before deducting any amounts withheld to pay premiums on supplementary Medicare insurance, and before any reduction because of benefits received under workers' compensation. Income tax ez form (Do not include a lump-sum death benefit payment you may receive as a surviving spouse, or a surviving child's insurance benefit payments you may receive as a guardian. Income tax ez form ) Nontaxable railroad retirement pension payments treated as social security. Income tax ez form This is the nontaxable part of the benefits shown in box 5 of Form RRB-1099, Payments by the Railroad Retirement Board. Income tax ez form Nontaxable pension or annuity payments or disability benefits that are paid under a law administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Income tax ez form (Do not include amounts received as a pension, annuity, or similar allowance for personal injuries or sickness resulting from active service in the armed forces of any country or in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration or the Public Health Service, or as a disability annuity under section 808 of the Foreign Service Act of 1980. Income tax ez form ) Pension or annuity payments or disability benefits that are excluded from income under any provision of federal law other than the Internal Revenue Code. Income tax ez form (Do not include amounts that are a return of your cost of a pension or annuity. Income tax ez form These amounts do not reduce your initial amount. Income tax ez form ) You should be sure to take into account all of the nontaxable amounts you receive. Income tax ez form These amounts are verified by the IRS through information supplied by other government agencies. Income tax ez form Step 3. Income tax ez form Determine Excess Adjusted Gross Income You also must reduce your initial amount by your excess adjusted gross income. Income tax ez form Figure your excess adjusted gross income on lines 14–17. Income tax ez form You figure your excess adjusted gross income as follows. Income tax ez form Subtract from your adjusted gross income (Form 1040A, line 22 or Form 1040, line 38) the amount shown for your filing status. Income tax ez form $7,500 if you are single, a head of household, or a qualifying widow(er) with dependent child, $10,000 if you are married filing jointly, or $5,000 if you are married filing separately and you and your spouse did not live in the same household at any time during the tax year. Income tax ez form Divide the result of (1) by 2. Income tax ez form Step 4. Income tax ez form Determine the Total of Steps 2 and 3 To determine if you can take the credit, you must add (on line 18) the amounts you figured in Step 2 (line 13c) and Step 3 (line 17). Income tax ez form Step 5. Income tax ez form Determine Your Credit Subtract the amount determined in Step 4 (line 18) from the amount determined in Step 1 (line 12), and multiply the result by 15% (. Income tax ez form 15). Income tax ez form In certain cases, the amount of your credit may be limited. Income tax ez form See Limit on credit , later. Income tax ez form Example. Income tax ez form You are 66 years old and your spouse is 64. Income tax ez form Your spouse is not disabled. Income tax ez form You file a joint return on Form 1040. Income tax ez form Your adjusted gross income is $14,630. Income tax ez form Together you received $3,200 from social security, which was nontaxable. Income tax ez form You figure the credit as follows: Example applying the 5 step process Amount (Line references (shown in parentheses) are to the Schedule R)      1. Income tax ez form Initial amount (line 12) $5,000 2. Income tax ez form Total nontaxable social security  and other nontaxable  pensions (line 13c) $3,200   3. Income tax ez form Excess adjusted gross income  ($14,630–$10,000) ÷ 2 (line 17) 2,315   4. Income tax ez form Add (2) and (3) (line 18) 5,515 5. Income tax ez form Subtract (4) from (1) (line 12 – line 18 = line 19) (Do not enter less than -0-) $ -0- You cannot take the credit because your nontaxable social security plus your excess adjusted gross income is more than your initial amount. Income tax ez form Limit on credit. Income tax ez form   The amount of credit you can claim is generally limited to the amount of your tax. Income tax ez form Use the Credit Limit Worksheet in the Instructions for Schedule R to determine if your credit is limited. Income tax ez form Examples The following examples illustrate the credit for the elderly or the disabled. Income tax ez form The initial amounts are taken from Table 2, earlier. Income tax ez form Example 1. Income tax ez form James Davis is 58 years old, single, and files Form 1040A. Income tax ez form In 2011 he retired on permanent and total disability, and he is still permanently and totally disabled. Income tax ez form He got the required physician's statement in 2011 and kept it with his tax records. Income tax ez form His physician signed on line B of the statement. Income tax ez form This year James checks the box in Schedule R, Part II. Income tax ez form He does not need to get another statement for 2013. Income tax ez form He received the following income for the year: Nontaxable social security $1,500 Interest (taxable) 100 Taxable disability pension 11,400       James' adjusted gross income is $11,500 ($11,400 + $100). Income tax ez form He figures the credit on Schedule R as follows: 1. Income tax ez form Initial amount   $5,000 2. Income tax ez form Taxable disability pension   11,400 3. Income tax ez form Smaller of line 1 or line 2   5,000 4. Income tax ez form Nontaxable social security  benefits $1,500     5. Income tax ez form Excess adjusted gross income  ($11,500 − $7,500) ÷ 2 2,000     6. Income tax ez form Add lines 4 and 5   3,500 7. Income tax ez form Subtract line 6 from line 3  (Do not enter less than (-0-))   1,500 8. Income tax ez form Multiply line 7 by 15% (. Income tax ez form 15)   225 9. Income tax ez form Enter the amount from the  Credit Limit Worksheet in the  Instructions for Schedule R, line 21   151 10. Income tax ez form Credit (Enter the smaller of  line 8 or line 9)   $ 151 He enters $151 on line 30 of Form 1040A. Income tax ez form The Schedule R for James Davis is not shown. Income tax ez form Example 2. Income tax ez form William White is 53. Income tax ez form His wife Helen is 49. Income tax ez form William had a stroke 3 years ago and retired on permanent and total disability. Income tax ez form He is still permanently and totally disabled because of the stroke. Income tax ez form In November, Helen was injured in an accident at work and retired on permanent and total disability. Income tax ez form William received nontaxable social security disability benefits of $2,000 during the year and a taxable disability pension of $6,200. Income tax ez form Helen earned $12,500 from her job and received a taxable disability pension of $1,700. Income tax ez form Their joint return on Form 1040 shows adjusted gross income of $20,400 ($6,200 + $12,500 + $1,700). Income tax ez form They do not itemize deductions. Income tax ez form They do not have any amounts that would increase their standard deduction. Income tax ez form Helen's doctor completed the physician's statement in the Instructions for Schedule R. Income tax ez form Helen is not required to include the statement with their return, but she must keep it for her records. Income tax ez form William got a physician's statement for the year he had the stroke.
