Irs tax forms 2012 Most treaties require that the nonresident alien be a resident of the treaty country to qualify. Irs tax forms 2012 However, some treaties require that the nonresident alien be a national or a citizen of the treaty country. Irs tax forms 2012 See Table 9-1 for a list of tax treaty countries. Irs tax forms 2012 You can generally arrange to have withholding tax reduced or eliminated on wages and other income that are eligible for tax treaty benefits. Irs tax forms 2012 See Income Entitled to Tax Treaty Benefits in chapter 8. Irs tax forms 2012 Topics - This chapter discusses: Typical tax treaty benefits, How to obtain copies of tax treaties, and How to claim tax treaty benefits on your tax return.

Irs tax forms 2012 Treaty Income A nonresident alien's treaty income is the gross income on which the tax is limited by a tax treaty. Irs tax forms 2012 Treaty income includes, for example, dividends from sources in the United States that are subject to tax at a tax treaty rate not to exceed 15%. Irs tax forms 2012 Nontreaty income is the gross income of a nonresident alien on which the tax is not limited by a tax treaty. Irs tax forms 2012 Figure the tax on treaty income on each separate item of income at the reduced rate that applies to that item under the treaty. Irs tax forms 2012 To determine tax on nontreaty income, figure the tax at either the flat 30% rate or the graduated rate, depending upon whether or not the income is effectively connected with your trade or business in the United States. Irs tax forms 2012 Your tax liability is the sum of the tax on treaty income plus the tax on nontreaty income, but cannot be more than the tax liability figured as if the tax treaty had not come into effect. Irs tax forms 2012 Example. Irs tax forms 2012 Arthur Banks is a nonresident alien who is single and a resident of a foreign country that has a tax treaty with the United States. Irs tax forms 2012 He received gross income of $25,850 during the tax year from sources within the United States, consisting of the following items: Dividends on which the tax is limited to a 15% rate by the tax treaty $1,400 Compensation for personal services on which the tax is not limited by the tax treaty 24,450 Total gross income $25,850 Arthur was engaged in business in the United States during the tax year. Irs tax forms 2012 His dividends are not effectively connected with that business. Irs tax forms 2012 He has no deductions other than his own personal exemption. Irs tax forms 2012 His tax liability, figured as though the tax treaty had not come into effect, is $3,060 determined as follows: Total compensation $24,450 Less: Personal exemption 3,900 Taxable income $20,550 Tax determined by graduated rate (Tax Table column for single taxpayers) $2,640 Plus: Tax on gross dividends ($1,400 × 30%) 420 Tax determined as though treaty had not come into effect $3,060 Arthur's tax liability, figured by taking into account the reduced rate on dividend income as provided by the tax treaty, is $2,850 determined as follows: Tax determined by graduated rate (same as figured above) $2,640 Plus: Tax on gross dividends ($1,400 × 15%) 210 Tax on compensation and dividends $2,850 His tax liability, therefore, is limited to $2,850, the tax liability figured using the tax treaty rate on the dividends. Irs tax forms 2012 Some Typical Tax Treaty Benefits The following paragraphs briefly explain the exemptions that are available under tax treaties for personal services income, remittances, scholarships, fellowships, and capital gain income. Irs tax forms 2012 The conditions for claiming the exemptions vary under each tax treaty. Irs tax forms 2012 For more information about the conditions under a particular tax treaty, see Publication 901. Irs tax forms 2012 Or, you may download the complete text of most U. Irs tax forms 2012 S. Irs tax forms 2012 tax treaties at IRS. Irs tax forms 2012 gov. Irs tax forms 2012 Technical explanations for many of those treaties are also available at that site. Irs tax forms 2012 Tax treaty benefits also cover income such as dividends, interest, rentals, royalties, pensions, and annuities. Irs tax forms 2012 These types of income may be exempt from U. Irs tax forms 2012 S. Irs tax forms 2012 tax or may be subject to a reduced rate of tax. Irs tax forms 2012 For more information, see Publication 901 or the applicable tax treaty. Irs tax forms 2012 Personal Services Nonresident aliens from treaty countries who are in the United States for a short stay and also meet certain other requirements may be exempt from tax on their compensation received for personal services performed in the United States. Irs tax forms 2012 Many tax treaties require that the nonresident alien claiming this exemption be present in the United States for a total of not more than 183 days during the tax year. Irs tax forms 2012 Other tax treaties specify different periods of maximum presence in the United States, such as 180 days or 90 days. Irs tax forms 2012 Spending part of a day in the United States counts as a day of presence. Irs tax forms 2012 Tax treaties may also require that: The compensation cannot be more than a specific amount (frequently $3,000), and The individual have a foreign employer; that is, an individual, corporation, or entity of a foreign country. Irs tax forms 2012 Note. Irs tax forms 2012 Under most treaties, income received as an employee (generally designated as dependent personal services) and income received as a self-employed person (generally designated as independent personal services or business income) are treated differently. Irs tax forms 2012 Teachers, Professors, and Researchers Under many income tax treaties, nonresident alien teachers or professors who temporarily visit the United States for the primary purpose of teaching at a university or other accredited educational institution are not subject to U. Irs tax forms 2012 S. Irs tax forms 2012 income tax on compensation received for teaching for the first 2 or 3 years after their arrival in the United States. Irs tax forms 2012 Many treaties also provide an exemption for engaging in research. Irs tax forms 2012 Generally, the teacher or professor must be in the United States primarily to teach, lecture, instruct, or engage in research. Irs tax forms 2012 A substantial part of that person's time must be devoted to those duties. Irs tax forms 2012 The normal duties of a teacher or professor include not only formal classroom work involving regularly scheduled lectures, demonstrations, or other student-participation activities, but also the less formal method of presenting ideas in seminars or other informal groups and in joint efforts in the laboratory. Irs tax forms 2012 If you entered the United States as a nonresident alien, but are now a resident alien, the treaty exemption may still apply. Irs tax forms 2012 See Students, Apprentices, Trainees, Teachers, Professors, and Researchers Who Became Resident Aliens later under Resident Aliens. Irs tax forms 2012 Employees of Foreign Governments All treaties have provisions for the exemption of income earned by certain employees of foreign governments. Irs tax forms 2012 However, a difference exists among treaties as to who qualifies for this benefit. Irs tax forms 2012 Under many treaties, aliens admitted to the United States for permanent residence do not qualify. Irs tax forms 2012 Under most treaties, aliens who are not nationals or subjects of the foreign country do not qualify. Irs tax forms 2012 Employees of foreign governments should read the pertinent treaty carefully to determine whether they qualify for benefits. Irs tax forms 2012 Chapter 10 of this publication also has information for employees of foreign governments. Irs tax forms 2012 Students, Apprentices, and Trainees Under some income tax treaties, students, apprentices, and trainees are exempt from tax on remittances received from abroad for study and maintenance. Irs tax forms 2012 Also, under some treaties, scholarship and fellowship grants, and a limited amount of compensation received by students, apprentices, and trainees may be exempt from tax. Irs tax forms 2012 If you entered the United States as a nonresident alien, but are now a resident alien, the treaty exemption may still apply. Irs tax forms 2012 See Students, Apprentices, Trainees, Teachers, Professors, and Researchers Who Became Resident Aliens , later, under Resident Aliens. Irs tax forms 2012 Capital Gains Most treaties provide for the exemption of gains from the sale or exchange of personal property. Irs tax forms 2012 Generally, gains from the sale or exchange of real property located in the United States are taxable. Irs tax forms 2012 Resident Aliens Resident aliens may qualify for tax treaty benefits in the situations discussed below. Irs tax forms 2012 U. Irs tax forms 2012 S. Irs tax forms 2012 Residency Under Tax Treaty “Tie-Breaker” Rule In certain circumstances, individuals who are treated as residents of the United States under an income tax treaty (after application of the so-called “tie-breaker” rule) will be entitled to treaty benefits. Irs tax forms 2012 (The “tie-breaker” rule is explained in chapter 1 under Effect of Tax Treaties. Irs tax forms 2012 ) If this applies to you, you generally will not need to file a Form 8833 for the income for which treaty benefits are claimed. Irs tax forms 2012 This is because the income will typically be of a category for which disclosure on a Form 8833 is waived. Irs tax forms 2012 See Reporting Treaty Benefits Claimed . Irs tax forms 2012 In most cases, you also will not need to report the income on your Form 1040 because the income will be exempt from U. Irs tax forms 2012 S. Irs tax forms 2012 tax under the treaty. Irs tax forms 2012 However, if the income has been reported as taxable income on a Form W-2, Form 1042-S, Form 1099, or other information return, you should report it on the appropriate line of Form 1040 (for example, line 7 in the case of wages or salaries). Irs tax forms 2012 Enter the amount for which treaty benefits are claimed in parentheses on Form 1040, line 21. Irs tax forms 2012 Next to the amount write “Exempt income,” the name of the treaty country, and the treaty article that provides the exemption. Irs tax forms 2012 On Form 1040, subtract this amount from your income to arrive at total income on Form 1040, line 22. Irs tax forms 2012 Also follow the above procedure for income that is subject to a reduced rate of tax, instead of an exemption, under the treaty. Irs tax forms 2012 Attach a statement to Form 1040 showing a computation of the tax at the reduced rate, the name of the treaty country, and the treaty article that provides for the reduced tax rate. Irs tax forms 2012 Include this tax on Form 1040, line 61. Irs tax forms 2012 On the dotted line next to line 61, write “Tax from attached statement” and the amount of the tax. Irs tax forms 2012 Example. Irs tax forms 2012 Jacques Dubois, who is a resident of the United States under Article 4 of the U. Irs tax forms 2012 S. Irs tax forms 2012 -France income tax treaty, receives French social security benefits. Irs tax forms 2012 Under Article 18(1) of the treaty, French social security benefits are not taxable by the United States. Irs tax forms 2012 Mr. Irs tax forms 2012 Dubois is not required to file a Form 8833 for his French social security benefits or report the benefits on Form 1040. Irs tax forms 2012 Special Rule for Canadian and German Social Security Benefits Under income tax treaties with Canada and Germany, if a U. Irs tax forms 2012 S. Irs tax forms 2012 resident receives social security benefits from Canada or Germany, those benefits are treated for U. Irs tax forms 2012 S. Irs tax forms 2012 income tax purposes as if they were received under the social security legislation of the United States. Irs tax forms 2012 If you receive social security benefits from Canada or Germany, include them on line 1 of your Social Security Benefits Worksheet for purposes of determining the taxable amount to be reported on Form 1040, line 20b or Form 1040A, line 14b. Irs tax forms 2012 You are not required to file a Form 8833 for those benefits. Irs tax forms 2012 Students, Apprentices, Trainees, Teachers, Professors, and Researchers Who Became Resident Aliens Generally, you must be a nonresident alien student, apprentice, trainee, teacher, professor, or researcher in order to claim a tax treaty exemption for remittances from abroad for study and maintenance in the United States, for scholarship, fellowship, and research grants, and for wages or other personal service compensation. Irs tax forms 2012 Once you become a resident alien, you generally can no longer claim a tax treaty exemption for this income. Irs tax forms 2012 However, if you entered the United States as a nonresident alien, but you are now a resident alien for U. Irs tax forms 2012 S. Irs tax forms 2012 tax purposes, the treaty exemption will continue to apply if the tax treaty's saving clause (explained later) provides an exception for it and you otherwise meet the requirements for the treaty exemption (including any time limit, explained later). Irs tax forms 2012 This is true even if you are a nonresident alien electing to file a joint return as explained in chapter 1. Irs tax forms 2012 Some exceptions to the saving clause apply to all resident aliens (for example, under the U. Irs tax forms 2012 S. Irs tax forms 2012 -People's Republic of China treaty); others apply only to resident aliens who are not lawful permanent residents of the United States (green card holders). Irs tax forms 2012 If you qualify under an exception to the treaty's saving clause, you can avoid income tax withholding by giving the payor a Form W-9 with the statement required by the Form W-9 instructions. Irs tax forms 2012 Saving clause. Irs tax forms 2012   Most tax treaties have a saving clause. Irs tax forms 2012 A saving clause preserves or “saves” the right of each country to tax its own residents as if no tax treaty were in effect. Irs tax forms 2012 Thus, once you become a resident alien of the United States, you generally lose any tax treaty benefits that relate to your income. Irs tax forms 2012 However, many tax treaties have exceptions to the saving clause, which may allow you to continue to claim certain treaty benefits when you become a resident alien. Irs tax forms 2012 Read the treaty to find out if it has a saving clause and an exception to it. Irs tax forms 2012 Time limit for claiming treaty exemptions. Irs tax forms 2012   Many treaties limit the number of years you can claim a treaty exemption. Irs tax forms 2012 For students, apprentices, and trainees, the limit is usually 4–5 years; for teachers, professors, and researchers, the limit is usually 2–3 years. Irs tax forms 2012 Once you reach this limit, you can no longer claim the treaty exemption. Irs tax forms 2012 See the treaty or Publication 901 for the time limits that apply. Irs tax forms 2012 How to report income on your tax return. Irs tax forms 2012   In most cases, you also will not need to report the income on your Form 1040 because the income will be exempt from U. Irs tax forms 2012 S. Irs tax forms 2012 tax under the treaty. Irs tax forms 2012 However, if the income has been reported as taxable income on a Form W-2, Form 1042-S, Form 1099, or other information return, you should report it on the appropriate line of Form 1040 (for example, line 7 in the case of wages, salaries, scholarships, or fellowships). Irs tax forms 2012 Enter the amount for which treaty benefits are claimed in parentheses on Form 1040, line 21. Irs tax forms 2012 Next to the amount write “Exempt income,” the name of the treaty country, and the treaty article that provides the exemption. Irs tax forms 2012 On Form 1040, subtract this amount from your income to arrive at total income on Form 1040, line 22. Irs tax forms 2012 Example. Irs tax forms 2012 Mr. Irs tax forms 2012 Yu, a citizen of the People's Republic of China, entered the United States as a nonresident alien student on January 1, 2009. Irs tax forms 2012 He remained a nonresident alien through 2013 and was able to exclude his scholarship from U. Irs tax forms 2012 S. Irs tax forms 2012 tax in those years under Article 20 of the U. Irs tax forms 2012 S. Irs tax forms 2012 -People's Republic of China income tax treaty. Irs tax forms 2012 On January 1, 2014, he became a resident alien under the substantial presence test because his stay in the United States exceeded 5 years. Irs tax forms 2012 Even though Mr. Irs tax forms 2012 Yu is now a resident alien, the provisions of Article 20 still apply because of the exception to the saving clause in paragraph 2 of the Protocol to the U. Irs tax forms 2012 S. Irs tax forms 2012 -People's Republic of China treaty dated April 30, 1984. Irs tax forms 2012 Mr. Irs tax forms 2012 Yu should submit Form W-9 and the required statement to the payor. Irs tax forms 2012 Reporting Treaty Benefits Claimed If you claim treaty benefits that override or modify any provision of the Internal Revenue Code, and by claiming these benefits your tax is, or might be, reduced, you must attach a fully completed Form 8833 to your tax return. Irs tax forms 2012 See below, for the situations where you are not required to file Form 8833. Irs tax forms 2012 You must file a U. Irs tax forms 2012 S. Irs tax forms 2012 tax return and Form 8833 if you claim the following treaty benefits. Irs tax forms 2012 You claim a reduction or modification in the taxation of gain or loss from the disposition of a U. Irs tax forms 2012 S. Irs tax forms 2012 real property interest based on a treaty. Irs tax forms 2012 You claim a credit for a specific foreign tax for which foreign tax credit would not be allowed by the Internal Revenue Code. Irs tax forms 2012 You receive payments or income items totaling more than $100,000 and you determine your country of residence under a treaty and not under the rules for residency discussed in chapter 1. Irs tax forms 2012 These are the more common situations for which Form 8833 is required. Irs tax forms 2012 Exceptions. Irs tax forms 2012   You do not have to file Form 8833 for any of the following situations. Irs tax forms 2012 You claim a reduced rate of withholding tax under a treaty on interest, dividends, rent, royalties, or other fixed or determinable annual or periodic income ordinarily subject to the 30% rate. Irs tax forms 2012 You claim a treaty reduces or modifies the taxation of income from dependent personal services, pensions, annuities, social security and other public pensions, or income of artists, athletes, students, trainees, or teachers. Irs tax forms 2012 This includes taxable scholarship and fellowship grants. Irs tax forms 2012 You claim a reduction or modification of taxation of income under an International Social Security Agreement or a Diplomatic or Consular Agreement. Irs tax forms 2012 You are a partner in a partnership or a beneficiary of an estate or trust and the partnership, estate, or trust reports the required information on its return. Irs tax forms 2012 The payments or items of income that are otherwise required to be disclosed total no more than $10,000.

Irs tax forms 2012 financial institution, qualified intermediary, or withholding foreign partnership or trust. Irs tax forms 2012 The exception described in (6) above does not apply to any amounts for which a treaty-based return disclosure is specifically required by the Form 8833 instructions. Irs tax forms 2012 Penalty for failure to provide required information on Form 8833. Irs tax forms 2012   If you are required to report the treaty benefits but do not, you may be subject to a penalty of $1,000 for each failure. Irs tax forms 2012 Additional information.

The Irs Tax Forms 2012

Irs tax forms 2012 3. Irs tax forms 2012   Gifts Table of Contents If you give gifts in the course of your trade or business, you can deduct all or part of the cost. Irs tax forms 2012 This chapter explains the limits and rules for deducting the costs of gifts. Irs tax forms 2012 $25 limit. Irs tax forms 2012   You can deduct no more than $25 for business gifts you give directly or indirectly to each person during your tax year. Irs tax forms 2012 A gift to a company that is intended for the eventual personal use or benefit of a particular person or a limited class of people will be considered an indirect gift to that particular person or to the individuals within that class of people who receive the gift. Irs tax forms 2012   If you give a gift to a member of a customer's family, the gift is generally considered to be an indirect gift to the customer. Irs tax forms 2012 This rule does not apply if you have a bona fide, independent business connection with that family member and the gift is not intended for the customer's eventual use. Irs tax forms 2012   If you and your spouse both give gifts, both of you are treated as one taxpayer. Irs tax forms 2012 It does not matter whether you have separate businesses, are separately employed, or whether each of you has an independent connection with the recipient. Irs tax forms 2012 If a partnership gives gifts, the partnership and the partners are treated as one taxpayer. Irs tax forms 2012 Example. Irs tax forms 2012 Bob Jones sells products to Local Company. Irs tax forms 2012 He and his wife, Jan, gave Local Company three gourmet gift baskets to thank them for their business. Irs tax forms 2012 They paid $80 for each gift basket, or $240 total. Irs tax forms 2012 Three of Local Company's executives took the gift baskets home for their families' use. Irs tax forms 2012 Bob and Jan have no independent business relationship with any of the executives' other family members. Irs tax forms 2012 They can deduct a total of $75 ($25 limit × 3) for the gift baskets. Irs tax forms 2012 Incidental costs. Irs tax forms 2012   Incidental costs, such as engraving on jewelry, or packaging, insuring, and mailing, are generally not included in determining the cost of a gift for purposes of the $25 limit. Irs tax forms 2012   A cost is incidental only if it does not add substantial value to the gift. Irs tax forms 2012 For example, the cost of gift wrapping is an incidental cost. Irs tax forms 2012 However, the purchase of an ornamental basket for packaging fruit is not an incidental cost if the value of the basket is substantial compared to the value of the fruit. Irs tax forms 2012 Exceptions. Irs tax forms 2012   The following items are not considered gifts for purposes of the $25 limit. Irs tax forms 2012 An item that costs $4 or less and: Has your name clearly and permanently imprinted on the gift, and Is one of a number of identical items you widely distribute. Irs tax forms 2012 Examples include pens, desk sets, and plastic bags and cases. Irs tax forms 2012 Signs, display racks, or other promotional material to be used on the business premises of the recipient. Irs tax forms 2012    Figure B.

Irs tax forms 2012   Any item that might be considered either a gift or entertainment generally will be considered entertainment. Irs tax forms 2012 However, if you give a customer packaged food or beverages you intend the customer to use at a later date, treat it as a gift. Irs tax forms 2012    If you give a customer tickets to a theater performance or sporting event and you do not go with the customer to the performance or event, you have a choice. Irs tax forms 2012 You can treat the cost of the tickets as either a gift expense or an entertainment expense, whichever is to your advantage. Irs tax forms 2012   You can change your treatment of the tickets at a later date by filing an amended return. Irs tax forms 2012 Generally, an amended return must be filed within 3 years from the date the original return was filed or within 2 years from the time the tax was paid, whichever is later. Irs tax forms 2012    If you go with the customer to the event, you must treat the cost of the tickets as an entertainment expense. Irs tax forms 2012 You cannot choose, in this case, to treat the cost of the tickets as a gift expense. Irs tax forms 2012 Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications
