Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 income tax return is required for your situation. Irs forms 1040 If a U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 return is required, your next step is to see if you meet the filing requirements. Irs forms 1040 If you do meet the filing requirements, the information presented in this chapter will help you understand the special procedures involved. Irs forms 1040 This chapter discusses: Filing requirements, When to file your return, Where to send your return, How to adjust your deductions and credits if you are excluding income from American Samoa or Puerto Rico, How to make estimated tax payments and pay self-employment tax, and How to request assistance in resolving instances of double taxation. Irs forms 1040 Who Must File If you are not required to file a possession tax return that includes your worldwide income, you must generally file a U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 income tax return if your gross income is at least the amount shown in Table 4-1, later, for your filing status and age. Irs forms 1040 If you were a bona fide resident of American Samoa or Puerto Rico and are able to exclude your possession income from your U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 tax return, your filing requirement may be less than the amount in Table 4-1. Irs forms 1040 For details, see the information under Filing Requirement if Possession Income Is Excluded , later. Irs forms 1040 Some individuals (such as those who can be claimed as a dependent on another person's return or who owe certain taxes, such as self-employment tax) must file a tax return even though the gross income is less than the amount shown in Table 4-1 for their filing status and age. Irs forms 1040 For more information, see the Form 1040 instructions. Irs forms 1040 Filing Requirement if Possession Income Is Excluded If you were a bona fide resident of American Samoa or Puerto Rico and qualify to exclude possession income on your U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 tax return, you must determine your adjusted filing requirement. Irs forms 1040 Generally, your filing requirement is based on the total of your (and your spouse's if filing a joint return) personal exemption(s) plus your standard deduction. Irs forms 1040 Personal exemption. Irs forms 1040   When figuring your filing requirement, your personal exemption is allowed in full. Irs forms 1040 Do not reduce it for this purpose. Irs forms 1040 Do not include exemptions for your dependents. Irs forms 1040 Allowable standard deduction. Irs forms 1040   Unless your filing status is married filing separately, the minimum income level at which you must file a return is based, in part, on the standard deduction for your filing status and age. Irs forms 1040 Because the standard deduction applies to all types of income, it must be divided between your excluded income and income from other sources. Irs forms 1040 Multiply the regular standard deduction for your filing status and age (this is zero if you are married filing a separate return; all others, see Form 1040 instructions) by the following fraction:      Gross income subject to U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 income tax     Gross income from all sources (including excluded possession income)   Example. Irs forms 1040 Barbara Spruce, a U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 citizen, is single, under 65, and a bona fide resident of American Samoa. Irs forms 1040 During 2013, she received $20,000 of income from American Samoa sources (qualifies for exclusion) and $8,000 of income from sources outside the possession (subject to U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 income tax). Irs forms 1040 Her allowable standard deduction for 2013 is figured as follows:   $8,000 $28,000 × $6,100 (regular standard deduction) = $1,743   Adjusted filing requirement. Irs forms 1040   Figure your adjusted filing requirement by adding the amount of your allowable standard deduction to the amount of your personal exemption. Irs forms 1040 You must file a U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 income tax return if your gross income is at least the amount shown on line 3 of the following worksheet. Irs forms 1040    1. Irs forms 1040 Enter the allowable standard deduction you figured earlier under Allowable standard deduction . Irs forms 1040 If your filing status is married filing separately, enter -0-   2. Irs forms 1040 Personal exemption. Irs forms 1040 If your filing status is married filing jointly, enter $7,800; if someone can claim you as a dependent, enter -0-; otherwise, enter $3,900   3. Irs forms 1040 Add lines 1 and 2. Irs forms 1040 You must file a U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 income tax return if your gross income from sources outside the relevant possession is at least this amount   Table 4-1. Irs forms 1040 2013 Filing Requirements Chart for Most Taxpayers IF your filing status is. Irs forms 1040 . Irs forms 1040 . Irs forms 1040 AND at the end of 2013 you were*. Irs forms 1040 . Irs forms 1040 . Irs forms 1040 THEN file a return if your gross income** was at least. Irs forms 1040 . Irs forms 1040 . Irs forms 1040 single under 65 $10,000 65 or older $11,500 married filing jointly*** under 65 (both spouses) $20,000 65 or older (one spouse) $21,200 65 or older (both spouses) $22,400 married filing separately any age $3,900 head of household under 65 $12,850 65 or older $14,350 qualifying widow(er)  with dependent child under 65 $16,100 65 or older $17,300 * If you were born on January 1, 1949, you are considered to be age 65 at the end of 2013. Irs forms 1040 ** Gross income means all income you received in the form of money, goods, property, and services that is not exempt from tax, including any income from sources outside the United States (even if you can exclude part or all of it). Irs forms 1040 Do not include social security benefits unless (a) you are married filing a separate return and you lived with your spouse at any time during 2013, or (b) one-half of your social security benefits plus your other gross income is more than $25,000 ($32,000 if married filing jointly). Irs forms 1040 If (a) or (b) applies, see the instructions for Form 1040 or Publication 915, Social Security and Equivalent Railroad Retirement Benefits, to figure the taxable part of social security benefits you must include in gross income. Irs forms 1040 *** If you did not live with your spouse at the end of 2013 (or on the date your spouse died) and your gross income was at least $3,900 you must file a return regardless of your age. Irs forms 1040 Example 1. Irs forms 1040 James and Joan Thompson, one over 65, are U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 citizens and bona fide residents of Puerto Rico during the entire tax year. Irs forms 1040 They file a joint income tax return. Irs forms 1040 During 2013, they received $35,000 of income from Puerto Rico sources (qualifies for exclusion) and $6,000 of income from sources outside Puerto Rico (subject to U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 income tax). Irs forms 1040 Their allowable standard deduction for 2013 is figured as follows:   $6,000 $41,000 × $13,400 ( standard deduction for 65 or older (one spouse) ) = $1,961   The Thompsons do not have to file a U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 income tax return because their gross income subject to U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 tax ($6,000) is less than their allowable standard deduction plus their personal exemptions ($1,961+ $7,800= $9,761). Irs forms 1040 Example 2. Irs forms 1040 Barbara Spruce (see Example under Allowable standard deduction, earlier), however, must file a U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 income tax return because her gross income subject to U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 tax ($8,000) is more than her allowable standard deduction plus her personal exemption ($1,743 + $3,900 = $5,643). Irs forms 1040 If you must file a U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 income tax return, you may be able to file a paperless return using IRS e-file. Irs forms 1040 See your form instructions or visit our website at IRS. Irs forms 1040 gov.

Irs forms 1040 If you are not in either of the above categories, send your return to the address shown in the Form 1040 instructions for the possession or state in which you reside. Irs forms 1040 Special Rules for Completing Your U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 Tax Return If you are not excluding possession income from your U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 tax return, follow the instructions for the specific forms you file. Irs forms 1040 However, you may not qualify to claim the earned income credit (EIC). Irs forms 1040 Earned income credit. Irs forms 1040   Even if you maintain a household in one of the possessions discussed in this publication that is your main home and the home of your qualifying child, you cannot claim the earned income credit on your U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 tax return. Irs forms 1040 This credit is available only if you maintain the household in the United States or you are serving on extended active duty in the U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 Armed Forces. Irs forms 1040 U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 Armed Forces. Irs forms 1040   U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 military personnel stationed outside the United States on extended active duty are considered to live in the United States during that duty period for purposes of the EIC. Irs forms 1040 Extended active duty means you are called or ordered to duty for an indefinite period or for a period of more than 90 days. Irs forms 1040 Once you begin serving your extended active duty, you are still considered to have been on extended active duty even if you do not serve more than 90 days. Irs forms 1040 Income from American Samoa or Puerto Rico excluded. Irs forms 1040   You will not be allowed to take deductions and credits that apply to the excluded income. Irs forms 1040 The additional information you need follows. Irs forms 1040 Deductions if Possession Income Is Excluded Deductions that specifically apply to your excluded possession income, such as employee business expenses, are not allowable on your U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 income tax return. Irs forms 1040 Deductions that do not specifically apply to any particular type of income must be divided between your excluded income from sources in the relevant possession and income from all other sources to find the part that you can deduct on your U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 tax return. Irs forms 1040 Examples of such deductions are alimony payments, the standard deduction, and certain itemized deductions (such as medical expenses, charitable contributions, real estate taxes, and mortgage interest on your home). Irs forms 1040 Figuring the deduction. Irs forms 1040   To find the part of a deduction that is allowable, multiply the deduction by the following fraction. Irs forms 1040   Gross income subject to U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 income tax     Gross income from all sources (including excluded possession income)   Adjustments to Income Your adjusted gross income equals your gross income minus certain deductions (adjustments). Irs forms 1040 Moving expense deduction. Irs forms 1040   Generally, expenses of a move to a possession are directly attributable to wages, salaries, and other earned income from that possession. Irs forms 1040 Likewise, the expenses of a move back to the United States are generally attributable to U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 earned income. Irs forms 1040   If you are claiming expenses for a move to a relevant possession, how and where you will deduct the expenses depends on your status as a bona fide resident and if any of your possession income is excluded on your U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 tax return. Irs forms 1040 For more information, see Moving expense deduction in chapter 3 under the name of the relevant possession. Irs forms 1040   If you are claiming expenses for a move from a U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 possession to the United States, use Form 3903 to figure your deductible expenses and enter the amount on Form 1040, line 26. Irs forms 1040 For purposes of deducting moving expenses, the possessions are considered part of the United States. Irs forms 1040 See Publication 521, Moving Expenses, for information about what expenses are deductible. Irs forms 1040 Self-employment tax deduction. Irs forms 1040   Generally, if you are reporting self-employment income on your U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 return, you can include the deductible part of your self-employment tax on Form 1040, line 27. Irs forms 1040 This is an income tax deduction only; it is not a deduction in figuring net earnings from self-employment (for self-employment tax). Irs forms 1040   However, if you are a bona fide resident of American Samoa or Puerto Rico and you exclude all of your self-employment income from gross income, you cannot take the deduction on Form 1040, line 27, because the deduction is related to excluded income. Irs forms 1040   If only part of your self-employment income is excluded, the part of the deduction that is based on the nonexcluded income is allowed. Irs forms 1040 This would happen if, for instance, you have two businesses and only the income from one of them is excludable. Irs forms 1040   For purposes of the deduction only, figure the self-employment tax on the nonexcluded income by multiplying your total self-employment tax (from Schedule SE (Form 1040)), Self-Employment Tax) by the following fraction. Irs forms 1040   Self-employment income subject to U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 income tax     Total self-employment income (including excluded possession income)   The result is your self-employment tax on nonexcluded income. Irs forms 1040 Include the deductible part of this amount on Form 1040, line 27. Irs forms 1040 Individual retirement arrangement (IRA) deduction. Irs forms 1040   Do not take excluded income into account when figuring your deductible IRA contribution. Irs forms 1040 Standard Deduction The standard deduction is composed of the regular standard deduction amount and the additional standard deduction for taxpayers who are blind or age 65 or over. Irs forms 1040 To find the amount you can claim on Form 1040, line 40, first figure your full standard deduction according to the Instructions for Form 1040. Irs forms 1040 Then multiply your full standard deduction by the following fraction. Irs forms 1040   Gross income subject to U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 income tax     Gross income from all sources (including excluded possession income)   In the space above line 40, enter “Standard deduction modified due to income excluded under section 931 (if American Samoa) or section 933 (if Puerto Rico). Irs forms 1040 ” This calculation may not be the same as the one you used to determine if you need to file a U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 tax return. Irs forms 1040 Itemized Deductions Most itemized deductions do not apply to a particular type of income. Irs forms 1040 However, itemized deductions can be divided into three categories. Irs forms 1040 Those that apply specifically to excluded income, such as employee business expenses, are not deductible. Irs forms 1040 Those that apply specifically to income subject to U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 income tax, which might also be employee business expenses, are fully allowable under the Instructions for Schedule A (Form 1040), Itemized Deductions. Irs forms 1040 Those that do not apply to specific income must be allocated between your gross income subject to U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 income tax and your total gross income from all sources. Irs forms 1040 The example given later shows how to figure the deductible part of each type of expense that is not related to specific income. Irs forms 1040 Example. Irs forms 1040 In 2013, you and your spouse are both under 65 and U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 citizens who are bona fide residents of Puerto Rico during the entire tax year. Irs forms 1040 You file a joint income tax return. Irs forms 1040 During 2013, you earned $20,000 from Puerto Rican sources (excluded from U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 gross income) and your spouse earned $60,000 from the U. Irs forms 1040 S. Irs forms 1040 Government. Irs forms 1040 You have $16,000 of itemized deductions that do not apply to any specific type of income.
