Pa state tax form 2012 Items Related to Excluded Income U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 citizens and resident aliens living outside the United States generally are allowed the same deductions as citizens and residents living in the United States. Pa state tax form 2012 If you choose to exclude foreign earned income or housing amounts, you cannot deduct, exclude, or claim a credit for any item that can be allocated to or charged against the excluded amounts. Pa state tax form 2012 This includes any expenses, losses, and other normally deductible items that are allocable to the excluded income. Pa state tax form 2012 You can deduct only those expenses connected with earning includible income. Pa state tax form 2012 These rules apply only to items definitely related to the excluded earned income and they do not apply to other items that are not definitely related to any particular type of gross income. Pa state tax form 2012 These rules do not apply to items such as: Personal exemptions, Qualified retirement contributions, Alimony payments, Charitable contributions, Medical expenses, Mortgage interest, or Real estate taxes on your personal residence. Pa state tax form 2012 For purposes of these rules, your housing deduction is not treated as allocable to your excluded income, but the deduction for self- employment tax is. Pa state tax form 2012 If you receive foreign earned income in a tax year after the year in which you earned it, you may have to file an amended return for the earlier year to properly adjust the amounts of deductions, credits, or exclusions allocable to your foreign earned income and housing exclusions. Pa state tax form 2012 Example. Pa state tax form 2012 In 2012, you had $90,400 of foreign earned income and $9,500 of deductions allocable to your foreign earned income. Pa state tax form 2012 You did not have a housing exclusion. Pa state tax form 2012 Because you excluded all of your foreign earned income, you would not have been able to claim any of the deductions on your 2012 return. Pa state tax form 2012 In 2013, you received a $12,000 bonus for work you did abroad in 2012. Pa state tax form 2012 You can exclude $4,700 of the bonus because the limit on the foreign earned income exclusion for 2012 was $95,100 and you have already excluded $90,400. Pa state tax form 2012 Since you must include $7,300 of the bonus ($12,000 − $4,700) for work you did in 2012 in income, you can file an amended return for 2012 to claim $677 of the deductions. Pa state tax form 2012 This is the deductions allocable to the foreign earned income ($9,500) multiplied by the includible portion of the foreign earned income ($7,300) and divided by the total foreign earned income for 2012 ($102,400). Pa state tax form 2012 Exemptions You can claim an exemption for your nonresident alien spouse on your separate return, provided your spouse has no gross income for U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 tax purposes and is not the dependent of another U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 taxpayer. Pa state tax form 2012 You also can claim exemptions for individuals who qualify as your dependents. Pa state tax form 2012 To be your dependent, the individual must be a U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 citizen, U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 national, U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 resident alien, or a resident of Canada or Mexico for some part of the calendar year in which your tax year begins. Pa state tax form 2012 Children. Pa state tax form 2012   Children usually are citizens or residents of the same country as their parents. Pa state tax form 2012 If you were a U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 citizen when your child was born, your child generally is a U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 citizen. Pa state tax form 2012 This is true even if the child's other parent is a nonresident alien, the child was born in a foreign country, and the child lives abroad with the other parent. Pa state tax form 2012   If you have a legally adopted child who is not a U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 citizen, U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 resident, or U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 national, the child meets the citizen requirement if you are a U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 citizen or U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 national and the child lived with you as a member of your household all year. Pa state tax form 2012 Social security number. Pa state tax form 2012   You must include on your return the social security number (SSN) of each dependent for whom you claim an exemption. Pa state tax form 2012 To get a social security number for a dependent, apply at a Social Security office or U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 consulate. Pa state tax form 2012 You must provide original or certified copies of documents to verify the dependent's age, identity, and citizenship, and complete Form SS-5. Pa state tax form 2012   If you do not have an SSN for a child who was born in 2013 and died in 2013, attach a copy of the child's birth certificate to your tax return. Pa state tax form 2012 Print “Died” in column (2) of line 6c of your Form 1040 or Form 1040A. Pa state tax form 2012   If your dependent is a nonresident alien who is not eligible to get a social security number, you must list the dependent's individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN) instead of an SSN. Pa state tax form 2012 To apply for an ITIN, file Form W-7 with the IRS. Pa state tax form 2012 It usually takes 6 to 10 weeks to get an ITIN. Pa state tax form 2012 Enter your dependent's ITIN wherever an SSN is requested on your tax return. Pa state tax form 2012 More information. Pa state tax form 2012   For more information about exemptions, see Publication 501. Pa state tax form 2012 Contributions to Foreign Charitable Organizations If you make contributions directly to a foreign church or other foreign charitable organization, you generally cannot deduct them. Pa state tax form 2012 Exceptions are explained under Canadian, Mexican, and Israeli charities, later. Pa state tax form 2012 You can deduct contributions to a U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 organization that transfers funds to a charitable foreign organization if the U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 organization controls the use of the funds by the foreign organization or if the foreign organization is just an administrative arm of the U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 organization. Pa state tax form 2012 Canadian, Mexican, and Israeli charities. Pa state tax form 2012   Under the income tax treaties with Canada, Mexico and Israel, you may be able to deduct contributions to certain Canadian, Mexican, and Israeli charitable organizations. Pa state tax form 2012 Generally, you must have income from sources in Canada, Mexico, or Israel, and the organization must meet certain requirements. Pa state tax form 2012 See Publication 597, Information on the United States-Canada Income Tax Treaty, and Publication 526, Charitable Contributions, for more information. Pa state tax form 2012 Moving Expenses If you moved to a new home in 2013 because of your job or business, you may be able to deduct the expenses of your move. Pa state tax form 2012 Generally, to be deductible, the moving expenses must have been paid or incurred in connection with starting work at a new job location. Pa state tax form 2012 See Publication 521 for a complete discussion of the deduction for moving expenses and information about moves within the United States. Pa state tax form 2012 Foreign moves. Pa state tax form 2012   A foreign move is a move in connection with the start of work at a new job location outside the United States and its possessions. Pa state tax form 2012 A foreign move does not include a move back to the United States or its possessions. Pa state tax form 2012 Allocation of Moving Expenses When your new place of work is in a foreign country, your moving expenses are directly connected with the income earned in that foreign country. Pa state tax form 2012 If you exclude all or part of the income that you earn at the new location under the foreign earned income exclusion or the foreign housing exclusion, you cannot deduct the part of your moving expense that is allocable to the excluded income. Pa state tax form 2012 Also, you cannot deduct the part of the moving expense related to the excluded income for a move from a foreign country to the United States if you receive a reimbursement that you are able to treat as compensation for services performed in the foreign country. Pa state tax form 2012 Year to which expense is connected. Pa state tax form 2012   The moving expense is connected with earning the income (including reimbursements, as discussed in chapter 4 under Reimbursement of moving expenses ) either entirely in the year of the move or in 2 years. Pa state tax form 2012 It is connected with earning the income entirely in the year of the move if you qualify for the foreign earned income exclusion under the bona fide residence test or physical presence test for at least 120 days during that tax year. Pa state tax form 2012   If you do not qualify under either the bona fide residence test or the physical presence test for at least 120 days during the year of the move, the expense is connected with earning the income in 2 years. Pa state tax form 2012 The moving expense is connected with the year of the move and the following year if the move is from the United States to a foreign country. Pa state tax form 2012 The moving expense is connected with the year of the move and the preceding year if the move is from a foreign country to the United States. Pa state tax form 2012 Amount allocable to excluded income. Pa state tax form 2012   To figure the amount of your moving expense that is allocable to your excluded foreign earned income (and not deductible), you must multiply your total moving expense deduction by a fraction. Pa state tax form 2012 The numerator (top number) of the fraction is the total of your excluded foreign earned income and housing amounts for both years and the denominator (bottom number) of the fraction is your total foreign earned income for both years. Pa state tax form 2012 Example. Pa state tax form 2012 On November 1, 2012, you transfer to Monaco. Pa state tax form 2012 Your tax home is in Monaco, and you are a bona fide resident of Monaco for the entire tax year 2013. Pa state tax form 2012 In 2012, you paid $6,000 for allowable moving expenses for your move from the United States to Monaco. Pa state tax form 2012 You were fully reimbursed (under a nonaccountable plan) for these expenses in the same year. Pa state tax form 2012 The reimbursement is included in your income. Pa state tax form 2012 Your only other income consists of $16,000 wages earned in 2012 after the date of your move, and $100,100 wages earned in Monaco for 2013. Pa state tax form 2012 Because you did not meet the bona fide residence test for at least 120 days during 2012, the year of the move, the moving expenses are for services you performed in both 2012 and the following year, 2013. Pa state tax form 2012 Your total foreign earned income for both years is $122,100, consisting of $16,000 wages for 2012, $100,100 wages for 2013, and $6,000 moving expense reimbursement for both years. Pa state tax form 2012 You have no housing exclusion. Pa state tax form 2012 The total amount you can exclude is $113,190, consisting of the $97,600 full-year exclusion for 2013 and a $15,590 part-year exclusion for 2012 ($95,100 times the fraction of 60 qualifying bona fide residence days over 366 total days in the year). Pa state tax form 2012 To find the part of your moving expenses that is not deductible, multiply your $6,000 total expenses by the fraction $113,190 over $122,100. Pa state tax form 2012 The result, $5,562, is your nondeductible amount. Pa state tax form 2012    You must report the full amount of the moving expense reimbursement in the year in which you received the reimbursement. Pa state tax form 2012 In the preceding example, this year was 2012. Pa state tax form 2012 You attribute the reimbursement to both 2012 and 2013 only to figure the amount of foreign earned income eligible for exclusion for each year. Pa state tax form 2012 Move between foreign countries. Pa state tax form 2012   If you move between foreign countries, your moving expense is allocable to income earned in the year of the move if you qualified under either the bona fide residence test or the physical presence test for a period that includes at least 120 days in the year of the move. Pa state tax form 2012 New place of work in U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012   If your new place of work is in the United States, the deductible moving expenses are directly connected with the income earned in the United States. Pa state tax form 2012 If you treat a reimbursement from your employer as foreign earned income (see the discussion in chapter 4), you must allocate deductible moving expenses to foreign earned income. Pa state tax form 2012 Storage expenses. Pa state tax form 2012   These expenses are attributable to work you do during the year in which you incur the storage expenses. Pa state tax form 2012 You cannot deduct the amount allocable to excluded income. Pa state tax form 2012 Moving Expense Attributable to Foreign Earnings in 2 Years If your moving expense deduction is attributable to your foreign earnings in 2 years (the year of the move and the following year), you should request an extension of time to file your return for the year of the move until after the end of the second year. Pa state tax form 2012 By then, you should have all the information needed to properly figure the moving expense deduction. Pa state tax form 2012 See Extensions under When To File and Pay in chapter 1. Pa state tax form 2012 If you do not request an extension, you should figure the part of the moving expense that you cannot deduct because it is allocable to the foreign earned income you are excluding. Pa state tax form 2012 You do this by multiplying the moving expense by a fraction, the numerator (top number) of which is your excluded foreign earned income for the year of the move, and the denominator (bottom number) of which is your total foreign earned income for the year of the move. Pa state tax form 2012 Once you know your foreign earnings and exclusion for the following year, you must either: Adjust the moving expense deduction by filing an amended return for the year of the move, or Recapture any additional unallowable amount as income on your return for the following year. Pa state tax form 2012 If, after you make the final computation, you have an additional amount of allowable moving expense deduction, you can claim this only on an amended return for the year of the move. Pa state tax form 2012 You cannot claim it on the return for the second year. Pa state tax form 2012 Forms To File Report your moving expenses on Form 3903. Pa state tax form 2012 Report your moving expense deduction on line 26 of Form 1040. Pa state tax form 2012 If you must reduce your moving expenses by the amount allocable to excluded income (as explained later under How To Report Deductions ), attach a statement to your return showing how you figured this amount. Pa state tax form 2012 For more information about figuring moving expenses, see Publication 521. Pa state tax form 2012 Contributions to Individual Retirement Arrangements Contributions to your individual retirement arrangements (IRAs) that are traditional IRAs or Roth IRAs are generally limited to the lesser of $5,500 ($6,500 if 50 or older) or your compensation that is includible in your gross income for the tax year. Pa state tax form 2012 In determining compensation for this purpose, do not take into account amounts you exclude under either the foreign earned income exclusion or the foreign housing exclusion. Pa state tax form 2012 Do not reduce your compensation by the foreign housing deduction. Pa state tax form 2012 If you are covered by an employer retirement plan at work, your deduction for your contributions to your traditional IRAs is generally limited based on your modified adjusted gross income. Pa state tax form 2012 This is your adjusted gross income figured without taking into account the foreign earned income exclusion, the foreign housing exclusion, or the foreign housing deduction. Pa state tax form 2012 Other modifications are also required. Pa state tax form 2012 For more information on IRAs, see Publication 590. Pa state tax form 2012 Taxes of Foreign Countries and U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 Possessions You can take either a credit or a deduction for income taxes paid to a foreign country or a U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 possession. Pa state tax form 2012 Taken as a deduction, foreign income taxes reduce your taxable income. Pa state tax form 2012 Taken as a credit, foreign income taxes reduce your tax liability. Pa state tax form 2012 You must treat all foreign income taxes the same way. Pa state tax form 2012 If you take a credit for any foreign income taxes, you cannot deduct any foreign income taxes. Pa state tax form 2012 However, you may be able to deduct other foreign taxes. Pa state tax form 2012 See Deduction for Other Foreign Taxes, later. Pa state tax form 2012 There is no rule to determine whether it is to your advantage to take a deduction or a credit for foreign income taxes. Pa state tax form 2012 In most cases, it is to your advantage to take foreign income taxes as a tax credit, which you subtract directly from your U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 tax liability, rather than as a deduction in figuring taxable income. Pa state tax form 2012 However, if foreign income taxes were imposed at a high rate and the proportion of foreign income to U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 income is small, a lower final tax may result from deducting the foreign income taxes. Pa state tax form 2012 In any event, you should figure your tax liability both ways and then use the one that is better for you. Pa state tax form 2012 You can make or change your choice within 10 years from the due date for filing the tax return on which you are entitled to take either the deduction or the credit. Pa state tax form 2012 Foreign income taxes. Pa state tax form 2012   These are generally income taxes you pay to any foreign country or possession of the United States. Pa state tax form 2012 Foreign income taxes on U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 return. Pa state tax form 2012   Foreign income taxes can only be taken as a credit on Form 1040, line 47, or as an itemized deduction on Schedule A. Pa state tax form 2012 These amounts cannot be included as withheld income taxes on Form 1040, line 62. Pa state tax form 2012 Foreign taxes paid on excluded income. Pa state tax form 2012   You cannot take a credit or deduction for foreign income taxes paid on earnings you exclude from tax under any of the following. Pa state tax form 2012 Foreign earned income exclusion. Pa state tax form 2012 Foreign housing exclusion. Pa state tax form 2012 Possession exclusion. Pa state tax form 2012 If your wages are completely excluded, you cannot deduct or take a credit for any of the foreign taxes paid on your wages. Pa state tax form 2012   If only part of your wages is excluded, you cannot deduct or take a credit for the foreign income taxes allocable to the excluded part. Pa state tax form 2012 You find the taxes allocable to your excluded wages by applying a fraction to the foreign taxes paid on foreign earned income received during the tax year. Pa state tax form 2012 The numerator (top number) of the fraction is your excluded foreign earned income received during the tax year minus deductible expenses allocable to that income (not including the foreign housing deduction). Pa state tax form 2012 The denominator (bottom number) of the fraction is your total foreign earned income received during the tax year minus all deductible expenses allocable to that income (including the foreign housing deduction). Pa state tax form 2012   If foreign law taxes both earned income and some other type of income and the taxes on the other type cannot be separated, the denominator of the fraction is the total amount of income subject to foreign tax minus deductible expenses allocable to that income. Pa state tax form 2012    If you take a foreign tax credit for tax on income you could have excluded under your choice to exclude foreign earned income or your choice to exclude foreign housing costs, one or both of the choices may be considered revoked. Pa state tax form 2012 Credit for Foreign Income Taxes If you take the foreign tax credit, you may have to file Form 1116 with Form 1040. Pa state tax form 2012 Form 1116 is used to figure the amount of foreign tax paid or accrued that can be claimed as a foreign tax credit. Pa state tax form 2012 Do not include the amount of foreign tax paid or accrued as withheld federal income taxes on Form 1040, line 62. Pa state tax form 2012 The foreign income tax for which you can claim a credit is the amount of legal and actual tax liability you pay or accrue during the year. Pa state tax form 2012 The amount for which you can claim a credit is not necessarily the amount withheld by the foreign country. Pa state tax form 2012 You cannot take a foreign tax credit for income tax you paid to a foreign country that would be refunded by the foreign country if you made a claim for refund. Pa state tax form 2012 Subsidies. Pa state tax form 2012   If a foreign country returns your foreign tax payments to you in the form of a subsidy, you cannot claim a foreign tax credit based on these payments. Pa state tax form 2012 This rule applies to a subsidy provided by any means that is determined, directly or indirectly, by reference to the amount of tax, or to the base used to figure the tax. Pa state tax form 2012   Some ways of providing a subsidy are refunds, credits, deductions, payments, or discharges of obligations. Pa state tax form 2012 A credit is also not allowed if the subsidy is given to a person related to you, or persons who participated in a transaction or a related transaction with you. Pa state tax form 2012 Limit The foreign tax credit is limited to the part of your total U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 tax that is in proportion to your taxable income from sources outside the United States compared to your total taxable income. Pa state tax form 2012 The allowable foreign tax credit cannot be more than your actual foreign tax liability. Pa state tax form 2012 Exemption from limit. Pa state tax form 2012   You will not be subject to this limit and will not have to file Form 1116 if you meet all three of the following requirements. Pa state tax form 2012 Your only foreign source income for the year is passive income (dividends, interest, royalties, etc. Pa state tax form 2012 ) that is reported to you on a payee statement (such as a Form 1099-DIV or 1099-INT). Pa state tax form 2012 Your foreign taxes for the year that qualify for the credit are not more than $300 ($600 if you are filing a joint return) and are reported on a payee statement. Pa state tax form 2012 You elect this procedure. Pa state tax form 2012 If you make this election, you cannot carry back or carry over any unused foreign tax to or from this year. Pa state tax form 2012 Separate limit. Pa state tax form 2012   You must figure the limit on a separate basis with regard to “passive category income” and “general category income” (see the instructions for Form 1116). Pa state tax form 2012 Figuring the limit. Pa state tax form 2012   In figuring taxable income in each category, you take into account only the amount that you must include in income on your federal tax return. Pa state tax form 2012 Do not take any excluded amount into account. Pa state tax form 2012   To determine your taxable income in each category, deduct expenses and losses that are definitely related to that income. Pa state tax form 2012   Other expenses (such as itemized deductions or the standard deduction) not definitely related to specific items of income must be apportioned to the foreign income in each category by multiplying them by a fraction. Pa state tax form 2012 The numerator (top number) of the fraction is your gross foreign income in the separate limit category. Pa state tax form 2012 The denominator (bottom number) of the fraction is your gross income from all sources. Pa state tax form 2012 For this purpose, gross income includes income that is excluded under the foreign earned income provisions but does not include any other exempt income. Pa state tax form 2012 You must use special rules for deducting interest expenses. Pa state tax form 2012 For more information on allocating and apportioning your deductions, see Publication 514. Pa state tax form 2012 Exemptions. Pa state tax form 2012   Do not take the deduction for exemptions for yourself, your spouse, or your dependents in figuring taxable income for purposes of the limit. Pa state tax form 2012 Recapture of foreign losses. Pa state tax form 2012   If you have an overall foreign loss and the loss reduces your U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 source income (resulting in a reduction of your U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 tax liability), you must recapture the loss in later years when you have taxable income from foreign sources. Pa state tax form 2012 This is done by treating a part of your taxable income from foreign sources in later years as U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 source income.

Pa state tax form 2012 citizen, have a tax home in Spain, and meet the physical presence test. Pa state tax form 2012 You are self-employed and personal services produce the business income.

Pa state tax form 2012 You choose the foreign earned income exclusion and exclude $97,600 of your gross income. Pa state tax form 2012 Since your excluded income is 83. Pa state tax form 2012 47% of your total income, 83. Pa state tax form 2012 47% of your business expenses are not deductible. Pa state tax form 2012 Report your total income and expenses on Schedule C (Form 1040).

Pa state tax form 2012 47% × $66,895) business expenses attributable to the exclusion. Pa state tax form 2012 In this situation (Example 2), you cannot use Form 2555-EZ since you had self-employment income and business expenses. Pa state tax form 2012 Example 3. Pa state tax form 2012 Assume in Example 2 that both capital and personal services combine to produce the business income. Pa state tax form 2012 No more than 30% of your net income, or $15,011, assuming that this amount is a reasonable allowance for your services, is considered earned and can be excluded. Pa state tax form 2012 Your exclusion of $15,011 is 12. Pa state tax form 2012 84% of your gross income ($15,011 ÷ $116,931). Pa state tax form 2012 Because you excluded 12. Pa state tax form 2012 84% of your total income, $8,589 (. Pa state tax form 2012 1284 x $66,895) of your business expenses is attributable to the excluded income and is not deductible. Pa state tax form 2012 Example 4. Pa state tax form 2012 You are a U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 citizen, have a tax home in Brazil, and meet the physical presence test. Pa state tax form 2012 You are self-employed and both capital and personal services combine to produce business income. Pa state tax form 2012 Your gross income was $146,000, business expenses were $172,000, and your net loss was $26,000. Pa state tax form 2012 A reasonable allowance for the services you performed for the business is $77,000. Pa state tax form 2012 Because you incurred a net loss, the earned income limit of 30% of your net profit does not apply. Pa state tax form 2012 The $77,000 is foreign earned income. Pa state tax form 2012 If you choose to exclude the $77,000, you exclude 52. Pa state tax form 2012 74% of your gross income ($77,000 ÷ $146,000), and 52.

Pa state tax form 2012 Subtract line 44 from line 43, and enter the difference as a negative (in parentheses) on line 45. Pa state tax form 2012 Because this amount is negative, enter it as a positive (no parentheses) on line 21, Form 1040, and combine it with your other income to arrive at total income on line 22 of Form 1040. Pa state tax form 2012 In this situation (Example 4), you would probably not want to choose the foreign earned income exclusion if this was the first year you were eligible. Pa state tax form 2012 If you had chosen the exclusion in an earlier year, you might want to revoke the choice for this year. Pa state tax form 2012 To do so would mean that you could not claim the exclusion again for the next 5 tax years without IRS approval. Pa state tax form 2012 See Choosing the Exclusion in chapter 4. Pa state tax form 2012 Example 5. Pa state tax form 2012 You are a U. Pa state tax form 2012 S. Pa state tax form 2012 citizen, have a tax home in Panama, and meet the bona fide residence test.

Pa state tax form 2012 Of the net profits of $145,750, you received $72,875 as your distributive share. Pa state tax form 2012 You choose to exclude $97,600 of your share of the gross income. Pa state tax form 2012 Because you exclude 80% ($97,600 ÷ $122,000) of your share of the gross income, you cannot deduct $39,300, 80% of your share of the operating expenses (. Pa state tax form 2012 80 × $49,125). Pa state tax form 2012 Report $72,875, your distributive share of the partnership net profit, on Schedule E (Form 1040), Supplemental Income and Loss.

Introduction

Treasury Decision (T.D.) 9363 requires corporations that have assets of $10 million or more and file at least 250 returns annually to electronically file their Forms 1120 and 1120S for tax years ending on or after December 31, 2007.
