Internal revenue tax forms 2010 U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Tax Return Filing Information If you are a U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 citizen or green card holder living or traveling outside the United States, you are generally required to file income tax returns in the same way as those residing in the United States. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 However, the special rules explained in the following discussions may apply to you. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 See also Tax Treaty Benefits, later. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 When To File and Pay Most individual tax returns cover a calendar year, January through December. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 The regular due date for these tax returns is April 15 of the following year. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 If April 15 falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, your tax return is considered timely filed if it is filed by the next business day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 If you get an extension, you are allowed additional time to file and, in some circumstances, pay your tax. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 You must pay interest on any tax not paid by the regular due date. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Your return is considered filed on time if it is mailed from and officially postmarked in a foreign country on or before the due date (including extensions), or given to a designated international private delivery service before midnight of the last date prescribed for filing. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 See your tax form instructions for a list of private delivery services that have been designated by the IRS to meet this “timely mailing as timely filing/paying” rule for tax returns and payments. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 If your return is filed late, the postmark or delivery service date does not determine the date of filing. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 In that case, your return is considered filed when it is received by the IRS. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Extensions You may be able to get an extension of time to file your return and pay your tax. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Automatic 2-month extension. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   You can get an automatic 2-month extension (to June 15, for a calendar year return) to file your return and pay your tax if you are a U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 citizen or resident and, on the regular due date of your return, you are living outside the United States and Puerto Rico and your main place of business or post of duty is outside the United States and Puerto Rico. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 To get this extension, you must attach a statement to your return explaining how you qualified. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 You will owe interest on any tax not paid by the regular due date of your return. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Married taxpayers. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   If you file a joint return, either you or your spouse can qualify for the automatic extension. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 If you and your spouse file separate returns, the extension applies only to the spouse who qualifies. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Additional extension. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   You can apply for an additional extension of time to file your return by filing Form 4868. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 You must file Form 4868 by the due date for your income tax return. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   Generally, you must file it by April 15. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 However, if you qualify for the automatic 2-month extension, you generally must file Form 4868 by June 15. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Check the box on line 8 of Form 4868. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Payment of tax. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   You should estimate and pay any additional tax you owe when you file Form 4868 to avoid being charged a late-payment penalty. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 The late-payment penalty applies if, through withholding, etc. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 , you paid less than 90% of your actual tax liability by the original due date of your income tax return. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Even if the late-payment penalty does not apply, you will be charged interest on any unpaid tax liability from the original due date of the return until the tax is paid. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Electronic filing. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   You can file for the additional extension by phone, using your home computer, or through a tax professional. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 See Form 4868 for more information. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Limit on additional extensions. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   You generally cannot get a total extension of more than 6 months. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 However, if you are outside the United States and meet certain tests, you may be able to get a longer extension. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   For more information, see Publication 54. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Foreign Bank Accounts You must file Form TD F 90-22. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 1 if at any time during the year you had an interest in, or signature or other authority over, a bank account, securities account, or other financial account in a foreign country. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 This applies if the combined assets in the account(s) were more than $10,000. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Do not include accounts in a U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 military banking facility operated by a U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 financial institution. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 File the completed form by June 30 of the following year with the Department of the Treasury at the address shown on that form. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Do not attach it to Form 1040. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 If you are required to file Form TD F 90-22. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 1 but do not do so, you may have to pay a penalty of up to $10,000 (more if the failure to file is willful). Internal revenue tax forms 2010 You also may be required to file Form 8938 with your U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 income tax return to report your interest in foreign bank accounts and other specified foreign financial assets. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 For taxpayers living abroad, you generally do not have to file Form 8938 unless the total value of your specified foreign financial assets is more than $200,000 ($400,000 if married filing jointly) on the last day of the tax year or more than $300,000 ($600,000 if married filing jointly) at any time during the tax year. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 For more information, see Form 8938 and its instructions. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Government Payments Wages earned for performing services outside the United States is foreign income, regardless of your employer. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 If you are a U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 citizen or resident alien, you must report all income from worldwide sources on your tax return unless it is exempt by U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 law. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 This applies to earned income (such as wages) as well as unearned income (such as interest, dividends, and capital gains). Internal revenue tax forms 2010 If you are a nonresident alien, your income from sources outside the United States is not subject to U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 tax. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Foreign Earned Income Exclusion Employees of the U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Government are not entitled to the foreign earned income exclusion or the foreign housing exclusion/deduction under section 911 because “foreign earned income ”does not include amounts paid by the U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Government as an employee. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 But see Other Employment, later. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Special Situations In the following two situations, your pay is from the U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Government and does not qualify for the foreign earned income exclusion. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 agency reimbursed by foreign country. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   If you are a U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Government employee paid by a U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 agency to perform services in a foreign country, your pay is from the U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Government and does not qualify the foreign earned income exclusion or the foreign housing exclusion/deduction. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 This is true even if the U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 agency is reimbursed by the foreign government. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Employees of post exchanges, etc. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   If you are an employee of an Armed Forces post exchange, officers' and enlisted personnel club, Embassy commissary, or similar instrumentality of the U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Government, the earnings you receive are paid by the U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Government. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 This is true whether they are paid from appropriated or nonappropriated funds. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 These earnings are not eligible for the foreign earned income exclusion or the foreign housing exclusion/deduction. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Tax Treaty Benefits Most income tax treaties contain an article relating to remuneration from government services. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Even if you are working in a foreign country with which the United States has an income tax treaty in force and the treaty article that applies to government services says that your government pay is taxable only in the foreign country, the treaty will likely contain a “saving clause”, which provides that the United States may tax its citizens and its residents as if the treaty had not come into effect. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 In some treaties, the government service article is an exception to the saving clause, but often only for individuals who are not U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 citizens or green card holders. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Consequently, if you are a U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 citizen or green card holder, you will generally not be entitled to reduce your U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 tax on your government pay. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 If you are neither a U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 citizen nor green card holder, and you are treated as a resident of the treaty country under the treaty residence article (after application of the so-called “tie-breaker” rule), then you may be entitled to benefits under the government service article. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Review the treaty text carefully. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 citizens must always file Form 1040. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Non-U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 citizens who are treated as a resident of a treaty country under the treaty residence article (after application of the so-called “tie-breaker” rule) may file Form 1040NR and attach Form 8833. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 If you pay or accrue taxes to the foreign country on your pay, you may be able to relieve double taxation with a foreign tax credit. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Most income tax treaties contain an article providing relief from double taxation. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Many treaties contain special foreign tax credit rules for U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 citizens who are residents of a treaty country. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 For more information on the mechanics of the foreign tax credit, see Foreign Taxes, later. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Allowances, Differentials, and Special Pay Most payments received by U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Government civilian employees for working abroad, including pay differentials, are taxable. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 However, certain foreign areas allowances, cost of living allowances, and travel allowances are tax free. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 The following discussions explain the tax treatment of allowances, differentials, and other special pay you receive for employment abroad. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Pay differentials. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   Pay differentials you receive as financial incentives for employment abroad are taxable. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Your employer should have included these differentials as wages on your Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   Generally, pay differentials are given for employment under adverse conditions (such as severe climate) or because the post of duty is located in a hazardous or isolated area that may be outside the United States. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 The area does not have to be a qualified hazardous duty area as discussed in Publication 3. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Pay differentials include: Post differentials, Special incentive differentials, and Danger pay. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Foreign areas allowances. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   Certain foreign areas allowances are tax free. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Your employer should not have included these allowances as wages on your Form W-2. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   Tax-free foreign areas allowances are allowances (other than post differentials) received under the following laws. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Title I, chapter 9, of the Foreign Service Act of 1980. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Section 4 of the Central Intelligence Agency Act of 1949, as amended. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Title II of the Overseas Differentials and Allowances Act. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Subsection (e) or (f) of the first section of the Administrative Expenses Act of 1946, as amended, or section 22 of that Act. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 These allowances cover such expenses as: Certain repairs to a leased home, Education of dependents in special situations, Motor vehicle shipment, Separate maintenance for dependents, Temporary quarters, Transportation for medical treatment, and Travel, moving, and storage. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Allowances received by foreign service employees for representation expenses are also tax free under the above provisions. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Cost-of-living allowances. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   If you are stationed outside the continental United States or in Alaska, your gross income does not include cost-of-living allowances (other than amounts received under Title II of the Overseas Differentials and Allowances Act) granted by regulations approved by the President of the United States. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 The cost-of-living portion of any other allowance (for example, a living and quarters allowance) is not included even if the underlying allowance is included in gross income. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Cost-of-living allowances are not included on your Form W-2. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Federal court employees. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   If you are a federal court employee, the preceding paragraph also applies to you. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 The cost-of-living allowance must be granted by rules similar to regulations approved by the President. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 American Institute in Taiwan. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   If you are an employee of the American Institute in Taiwan, allowances you receive are exempt from U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 tax if they are equivalent to tax-exempt allowances received by civilian employees of the U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Government. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Federal reemployment payments after serving with an international organization. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   If you are a federal employee who is reemployed by a federal agency after serving with an international organization, you must include in income any reemployment payments you receive. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 These payments are equal to the difference between the pay, allowances, post differential, and other monetary benefits paid by the international organization and the pay and other benefits that would have been paid by the federal agency had you been detailed to the international agency. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Allowances or reimbursements for travel and transportation expenses. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   See How To Report Business Expenses, later, for a discussion on whether a reimbursement or allowance for travel or transportation is included in your income. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Lodging furnished to a principal representative of the United States. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   If you are a principal representative of the United States stationed in a foreign country, you do not have to include in income the value of lodging (including utilities) provided to you as an official residence. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 However, amounts paid by the U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 government for your usual costs of operating and maintaining your household are taxable. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 If amounts are withheld from your pay to cover these expenses, you cannot exclude or deduct those amounts from your income. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Peace Corps. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   If you are a Peace Corps volunteer or volunteer leader, some allowances you receive are taxable and others are not. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Taxable allowances. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   The following allowances must be included on your Form W-2 and reported on your return as wages. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 If you are a volunteer leader, allowances paid to your spouse and minor children while you are training in the United States. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 The part of living allowances designated by the Director of the Peace Corps as basic compensation. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 This is the part for personal items such as domestic help, laundry and clothing maintenance, entertainment and recreation, transportation, and other miscellaneous expenses. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Leave allowances. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Readjustment allowances or “termination payments. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 ” Taxable allowances are considered received by you when credited to your account. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Example. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Gary Carpenter, a Peace Corps volunteer, gets $175 a month during his period of service, to be paid to him in a lump sum at the end of his tour of duty. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Although the allowance is not available to him until the end of his service, Gary must include it in his income on a monthly basis as it is credited to his account. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Nontaxable allowances. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   These generally include travel allowances and the part of living allowances for housing, utilities, food, clothing, and household supplies. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 These allowances should not be included on your Form W-2. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 These allowances are tax free whether paid by the U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Government or the foreign country in which you are stationed. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Other Income Other employment. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   If, in addition to your U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 government pay, you receive income from a private employer or self-employment, you may qualify to claim the foreign earned income exclusion and the foreign housing exclusion and deduction under section 911 based on this other income provided you meet either the bona fide residence test or the physical presence test. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 In addition, if your spouse is a U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 citizen or resident alien who earns income in a foreign country that is paid by a private employer or is from self-employment, he or she may also qualify for the exclusion or the deduction. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 For more information, see Publication 54. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 The tax treaty rules relating to income from personal services generally apply to income from private employment. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 As discussed above, the saving clause applies to you if you are a U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 citizen or if you are a resident of the United States under the treaty residence article (after application of the so-called “tie-breaker” rule). Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Sale of personal property. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   If you have a gain from the sale of your personal property (such as an automobile or a home appliance), whether directly or through a favorable exchange rate in converting the proceeds to U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 dollars, the excess of the amount received in U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 dollars over the cost or other basis of the property is a capital gain. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Capital gains are reported on Schedule D (Form 1040), Capital Gains and Losses. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 However, losses from sales of your personal property, whether directly or through an unfavorable exchange rate, are not deductible. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Sale of your home. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   All or part of the gain on the sale of your main home, within or outside the United States, may be taxable. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Losses are not deductible. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   You may be able to exclude from income any gain up to $250,000 ($500,000 on a joint return). Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Generally, you must have owned and used the home as your main residence for two of the five years preceding the date of sale. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   You can choose to have the 5-year test period for ownership and use suspended during any period you or your spouse is serving on qualified official extended duty as a member of the Foreign Service of the United States, as an employee of the intelligence community, or as an employee or volunteer of the Peace Corps. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   For detailed information on selling your home, see Publication 523. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Deductions and Credits — Business Expenses You may deduct certain expenses such as travel expenses, transportation expenses, and other expenses connected to your employment. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Travel Expenses Subject to certain limits, you can deduct your unreimbursed ordinary and necessary expenses of traveling away from home in connection with the performance of your official duties. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 These expenses include such items as travel costs, meals, lodging, baggage charges, local transportation costs (such as taxi fares), tips, and dry cleaning and laundry fees. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Your home for tax purposes (tax home) is your regular post of duty regardless of where you maintain your family home. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Your tax home is not limited to the Embassy, consulate, or duty station. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 It includes the entire city or general area in which your principal place of employment is located. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Traveling away from home. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   You are traveling away from home if you meet both of the following requirements. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Your duties require you to be away from the general area of your tax home substantially longer than an ordinary day's work. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 You need to get sleep or rest to meet the demands of your work while away from home. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 This requirement is not satisfied by merely napping in your car. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 You do not have to be away from your tax home for a whole day or from dusk to dawn as long as your relief from duty is long enough to get necessary sleep or rest. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Temporary assignment. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   If your assignment or job away from your tax home is temporary, your tax home does not change. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 You are considered to be away from home for the whole period, and your travel expenses are deductible. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Generally, a temporary assignment in a single location is one that is realistically expected to last (and does in fact last) for one year or less. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   However, if your assignment or job is indefinite, the location of the assignment or job becomes your new tax home and you cannot deduct your travel expenses while there. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 An assignment or job in a single location is considered indefinite if it is realistically expected to last for more than one year, whether or not it actually lasts for more than one year. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   You must determine whether your assignment is temporary or indefinite when you start work. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 If you expect employment to last for one year or less, it is temporary unless there are facts and circumstances that indicate otherwise. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Employment that is initially temporary may become indefinite due to changed circumstances. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 A series of assignments to the same location, all for short periods but that together cover a long period, may be considered an indefinite assignment. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Exception for federal crime investigations or prosecutions. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   If you are a federal employee participating in a federal crime investigation or prosecution, you may be able to deduct travel expenses even if you are away from your tax home for more than one year. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 This exception to the one-year rule applies if the Attorney General certifies that you are traveling for the federal government in a temporary duty status to prosecute, or provide support services for the investigation or prosecution of, a federal crime. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Limit on meals and entertainment. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   You can generally deduct only 50% of the cost of your unreimbursed business-related meals and entertainment. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 However, the limit does not apply to expenses reimbursed under a U. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 S. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Government expense allowance arrangement. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Individuals subject to hours of service limits. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   You can deduct 80% of your unreimbursed business-related meal expenses if the meals take place during or incident to any period subject to the Department of Transportation's hours of service limits. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   Individuals subject to the Department of Transportation's “hours of service” limits include the following. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Certain air transportation workers (such as pilots, crew, dispatchers, mechanics, and control tower operators) who are under Federal Aviation Administration regulations. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Interstate truck operators and bus drivers who are under Department of Transportation regulations. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Certain railroad employees (such as engineers, conductors, train crews, dispatchers, and control operations personnel) who are under Federal Railroad Administration regulations. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Certain merchant mariners who are under Coast Guard regulations. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 Primary purpose of trip must be for business. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   If your trip was entirely for business, your unreimbursed travel expenses are generally deductible. Internal revenue tax forms 2010 However, if you spend some of your time on nonbusiness activities, part of your expenses may not be deductible. Internal revenue tax forms 2010   If your trip was mainly personal, you cannot deduct your travel expenses to and from your destination.
