Review tax act 2010 Resident aliens are generally taxed in the same way as U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 citizens. Review tax act 2010 Nonresident aliens are taxed based on the source of their income and whether or not their income is effectively connected with a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 trade or business. Review tax act 2010 The following discussions will help you determine if income you receive during the tax year is effectively connected with a U.

Review tax act 2010 Resident Aliens Resident aliens are generally taxed in the same way as U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 citizens. Review tax act 2010 This means that their worldwide income is subject to U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 tax and must be reported on their U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 tax return. Review tax act 2010 Income of resident aliens is subject to the graduated tax rates that apply to U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 citizens. Review tax act 2010 Resident aliens use the Tax Table or Tax Computation Worksheets located in the Form 1040 instructions, which apply to U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 citizens. Review tax act 2010 Nonresident Aliens A nonresident alien's income that is subject to U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 income tax must be divided into two categories: Income that is effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States, and Income that is not effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States (discussed under The 30% Tax, later). Review tax act 2010 The difference between these two categories is that effectively connected income, after allowable deductions, is taxed at graduated rates. Review tax act 2010 These are the same rates that apply to U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 citizens and residents. Review tax act 2010 Income that is not effectively connected is taxed at a flat 30% (or lower treaty) rate. Review tax act 2010 If you were formerly a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 citizen or resident alien, these rules may not apply. Review tax act 2010 See Expatriation Tax, later, in this chapter. Review tax act 2010 Trade or Business in the United States Generally, you must be engaged in a trade or business during the tax year to be able to treat income received in that year as effectively connected with that trade or business. Review tax act 2010 Whether you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States depends on the nature of your activities. Review tax act 2010 The discussions that follow will help you determine whether you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Review tax act 2010 Personal Services If you perform personal services in the United States at any time during the tax year, you usually are considered engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Review tax act 2010 Certain compensation paid to a nonresident alien by a foreign employer is not included in gross income. Review tax act 2010 For more information, see Services Performed for Foreign Employer in chapter 3. Review tax act 2010 Other Trade or Business Activities Other examples of being engaged in a trade or business in the United States follow. Review tax act 2010 Students and trainees. Review tax act 2010   You are considered engaged in a trade or business in the United States if you are temporarily present in the United States as a nonimmigrant under an “F,” “J,” “M,” or “Q” visa. Review tax act 2010 A nonresident alien temporarily present in the United States under a “J” visa includes a nonresident alien individual admitted to the United States as an exchange visitor under the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961. Review tax act 2010 The taxable part of any scholarship or fellowship grant that is U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 source income is treated as effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Review tax act 2010 Business operations. Review tax act 2010   If you own and operate a business in the United States selling services, products, or merchandise, you are, with certain exceptions, engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Review tax act 2010 Partnerships. Review tax act 2010   If you are a member of a partnership that at any time during the tax year is engaged in a trade or business in the United States, you are considered to be engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Review tax act 2010 Beneficiary of an estate or trust. Review tax act 2010   If you are the beneficiary of an estate or trust that is engaged in a trade or business in the United States, you are treated as being engaged in the same trade or business. Review tax act 2010 Trading in stocks, securities, and commodities. Review tax act 2010   If your only U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 business activity is trading in stocks, securities, or commodities (including hedging transactions) through a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 resident broker or other agent, you are not engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Review tax act 2010   For transactions in stocks or securities, this applies to any nonresident alien, including a dealer or broker in stocks and securities. Review tax act 2010   For transactions in commodities, this applies to commodities that are usually traded on an organized commodity exchange and to transactions that are usually carried out at such an exchange. Review tax act 2010   This discussion does not apply if you have a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 office or other fixed place of business at any time during the tax year through which, or by the direction of which, you carry out your transactions in stocks, securities, or commodities. Review tax act 2010 Trading for a nonresident alien's own account. Review tax act 2010   You are not engaged in a trade or business in the United States if trading for your own account in stocks, securities, or commodities is your only U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 business activity. Review tax act 2010 This applies even if the trading takes place while you are present in the United States or is done by your employee or your broker or other agent. Review tax act 2010   This does not apply to trading for your own account if you are a dealer in stocks, securities, or commodities. Review tax act 2010 This does not necessarily mean, however, that as a dealer you are considered to be engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Review tax act 2010 Determine that based on the facts and circumstances in each case or under the rules given above in Trading in stocks, securities, and commodities . Review tax act 2010 Effectively Connected Income If you are engaged in a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 trade or business, all income, gain, or loss for the tax year that you get from sources within the United States (other than certain investment income) is treated as effectively connected income. Review tax act 2010 This applies whether or not there is any connection between the income and the trade or business being carried on in the United States during the tax year. Review tax act 2010 Two tests, described next under Investment Income, determine whether certain items of investment income (such as interest, dividends, and royalties) are treated as effectively connected with that business. Review tax act 2010 In limited circumstances, some kinds of foreign source income may be treated as effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Review tax act 2010 For a discussion of these rules, see Foreign Income , later. Review tax act 2010 Investment Income Investment income from U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 sources that may or may not be treated as effectively connected with a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 trade or business generally falls into the following three categories. Review tax act 2010 Fixed or determinable income (interest, dividends, rents, royalties, premiums, annuities, etc. Review tax act 2010 ). Review tax act 2010 Gains (some of which are considered capital gains) from the sale or exchange of the following types of property. Review tax act 2010 Timber, coal, or domestic iron ore with a retained economic interest. Review tax act 2010 Patents, copyrights, and similar property on which you receive contingent payments after October 4, 1966. Review tax act 2010 Patents transferred before October 5, 1966. Review tax act 2010 Original issue discount obligations. Review tax act 2010 Capital gains (and losses). Review tax act 2010 Use the two tests, described next, to determine whether an item of U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 source income falling in one of the three categories above and received during the tax year is effectively connected with your U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 trade or business. Review tax act 2010 If the tests indicate that the item of income is effectively connected, you must include it with your other effectively connected income. Review tax act 2010 If the item of income is not effectively connected, include it with all other income discussed under The 30% Tax later, in this chapter. Review tax act 2010 Asset-use test. Review tax act 2010   This test usually applies to income that is not directly produced by trade or business activities. Review tax act 2010 Under this test, if an item of income is from assets (property) used in, or held for use in, the trade or business in the United States, it is considered effectively connected. Review tax act 2010   An asset is used in, or held for use in, the trade or business in the United States if the asset is: Held for the principal purpose of promoting the conduct of a trade or business in the United States, Acquired and held in the ordinary course of the trade or business conducted in the United States (for example, an account receivable or note receivable arising from that trade or business), or Otherwise held to meet the present needs of the trade or business in the United States and not its anticipated future needs. Review tax act 2010 Generally, stock of a corporation is not treated as an asset used in, or held for use in, a trade or business in the United States. Review tax act 2010 Business-activities test. Review tax act 2010   This test usually applies when income, gain, or loss comes directly from the active conduct of the trade or business. Review tax act 2010 The business-activities test is most important when: Dividends or interest are received by a dealer in stocks or securities, Royalties are received in the trade or business of licensing patents or similar property, or Service fees are earned by a servicing business. Review tax act 2010 Under this test, if the conduct of the U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 trade or business was a material factor in producing the income, the income is considered effectively connected. Review tax act 2010 Personal Service Income You usually are engaged in a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 trade or business when you perform personal services in the United States. Review tax act 2010 Personal service income you receive in a tax year in which you are engaged in a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 trade or business is effectively connected with a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 trade or business. Review tax act 2010 Income received in a year other than the year you performed the services is also effectively connected if it would have been effectively connected if received in the year you performed the services. Review tax act 2010 Personal service income includes wages, salaries, commissions, fees, per diem allowances, and employee allowances and bonuses. Review tax act 2010 The income may be paid to you in the form of cash, services, or property. Review tax act 2010 If you are engaged in a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 trade or business only because you perform personal services in the United States during the tax year, income and gains from assets, and gains and losses from the sale or exchange of capital assets are generally not effectively connected with your trade or business. Review tax act 2010 However, if there is a direct economic relationship between your holding of the asset and your trade or business of performing personal services, the income, gain, or loss is effectively connected. Review tax act 2010 Pensions. Review tax act 2010   If you were a nonresident alien engaged in a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 trade or business after 1986 because you performed personal services in the United States, and you later receive a pension or retirement pay attributable to these services, such payments are effectively connected income in each year you receive them. Review tax act 2010 This is true whether or not you are engaged in a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 trade or business in the year you receive the retirement pay. Review tax act 2010 Transportation Income Transportation income (defined in chapter 2) is effectively connected if you meet both of the following conditions. Review tax act 2010 You had a fixed place of business in the United States involved in earning the income. Review tax act 2010 At least 90% of your U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 source transportation income is attributable to regularly scheduled transportation. Review tax act 2010 “Fixed place of business” generally means a place, site, structure, or other similar facility through which you engage in a trade or business. Review tax act 2010 “Regularly scheduled transportation” means that a ship or aircraft follows a published schedule with repeated sailings or flights at regular intervals between the same points for voyages or flights that begin or end in the United States. Review tax act 2010 This definition applies to both scheduled and chartered air transportation. Review tax act 2010 If you do not meet the two conditions above, the income is not effectively connected and is taxed at a 4% rate. Review tax act 2010 See Transportation Tax, later, in this chapter. Review tax act 2010 Business Profits and Losses and Sales Transactions All profits or losses from U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 sources that are from the operation of a business in the United States are effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Review tax act 2010 For example, profit from the sale in the United States of inventory property purchased either in this country or in a foreign country is effectively connected trade or business income. Review tax act 2010 A share of U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 source profits or losses of a partnership that is engaged in a trade or business in the United States is also effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Review tax act 2010 Real Property Gain or Loss Gains and losses from the sale or exchange of U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property interests (whether or not they are capital assets) are taxed as if you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Review tax act 2010 You must treat the gain or loss as effectively connected with that trade or business. Review tax act 2010 U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property interest. Review tax act 2010   This is any interest in real property located in the United States or the U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 Virgin Islands or any interest (other than as a creditor) in a domestic corporation that is a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property holding corporation. Review tax act 2010 Real property includes the following. Review tax act 2010 Land and unsevered natural products of the land, such as growing crops and timber, and mines, wells, and other natural deposits. Review tax act 2010 Improvements on land, including buildings, other permanent structures, and their structural components. Review tax act 2010 Personal property associated with the use of real property, such as equipment used in farming, mining, forestry, or construction or property used in lodging facilities or rented office space, unless the personal property is: Disposed of more than one year before or after the disposition of the real property, or Separately sold to persons unrelated either to the seller or to the buyer of the real property. Review tax act 2010 U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property holding corporation. Review tax act 2010   A corporation is a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property holding corporation if the fair market value of the corporation's U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property interests are at least 50% of the total fair market value of: The corporation's U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property interests, plus The corporation's interests in real property located outside the United States, plus The corporation's other assets that are used in, or held for use in, a trade or business. Review tax act 2010   Gain or loss on the sale of the stock in any domestic corporation is taxed as if you are engaged in a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 trade or business unless you establish that the corporation is not a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property holding corporation. Review tax act 2010   A U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property interest does not include a class of stock of a corporation that is regularly traded on an established securities market, unless you hold more than 5% of the fair market value of that class of stock. Review tax act 2010 An interest in a foreign corporation owning U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property generally is not a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property interest unless the corporation chooses to be treated as a domestic corporation. Review tax act 2010 Qualified investment entities. Review tax act 2010   Special rules apply to qualified investment entities (QIEs). Review tax act 2010 A QIE is any real estate investment trust (REIT) or any regulated investment company (RIC) that is a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property holding corporation. Review tax act 2010    Generally, any distribution from a QIE to a shareholder that is attributable to gain from the sale or exchange of a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property interest is treated as a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property gain by the shareholder receiving the distribution. Review tax act 2010 A distribution by a QIE on stock regularly traded on an established securities market in the United States is not treated as gain from the sale or exchange of a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property interest if you did not own more than 5% of that stock at any time during the 1-year period ending on the date of the distribution. Review tax act 2010 A distribution that you do not treat as gain from the sale or exchange of a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property interest is included in your gross income as a regular dividend. Review tax act 2010 Note. Review tax act 2010 Beginning January 1, 2014 (unless extended by legislation), a RIC that is a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property holding corporation will only be treated as a QIE for certain distributions from the RIC that are directly or indirectly attributable to distributions received by the RIC from a REIT. Review tax act 2010 Domestically controlled QIE. Review tax act 2010   The sale of an interest in a domestically controlled QIE is not the sale of a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property interest. Review tax act 2010 The entity is domestically controlled if at all times during the testing period less than 50% in value of its stock was held, directly or indirectly, by foreign persons. Review tax act 2010 The testing period is the shorter of (a) the 5-year period ending on the date of disposition, or (b) the period during which the entity was in existence. Review tax act 2010 Wash sale. Review tax act 2010    If you dispose of an interest in a domestically controlled QIE in an applicable wash sale transaction, special rules apply. Review tax act 2010 An applicable wash sale transaction is one in which you: Dispose of an interest in the domestically controlled QIE during the 30-day period before the ex-dividend date of a distribution that you would (but for the disposition) have treated as gain from the sale or exchange of a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property interest, and Acquire, or enter into a contract or option to acquire, a substantially identical interest in that entity during the 61-day period that began on the first day of the 30-day period. Review tax act 2010 If this occurs, you are treated as having gain from the sale or exchange of a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property interest in an amount equal to the distribution made after June 15, 2006, that would have been treated as such gain. Review tax act 2010 This also applies to any substitute dividend payment. Review tax act 2010   A transaction is not treated as an applicable wash sale transaction if: You actually receive the distribution from the domestically controlled QIE related to the interest disposed of, or acquired, in the transaction, or You dispose of any class of stock in a QIE that is regularly traded on an established securities market in the United States but only if you did not own more than 5% of that class of stock at any time during the 1-year period ending on the date of the distribution. Review tax act 2010 Alternative minimum tax. Review tax act 2010   There may be a minimum tax on your net gain from the disposition of U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property interests. Review tax act 2010 Figure the amount of this tax, if any, on Form 6251. Review tax act 2010 Withholding of tax. Review tax act 2010   If you dispose of a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 real property interest, the buyer may have to withhold tax. Review tax act 2010 See the discussion of Tax Withheld on Real Property Sales in chapter 8. Review tax act 2010 Foreign Income You must treat three kinds of foreign source income as effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States if: You have an office or other fixed place of business in the United States to which the income can be attributed, That office or place of business is a material factor in producing the income, and The income is produced in the ordinary course of the trade or business carried on through that office or other fixed place of business. Review tax act 2010 An office or other fixed place of business is a material factor if it significantly contributes to, and is an essential economic element in, the earning of the income. Review tax act 2010 The three kinds of foreign source income are listed below. Review tax act 2010 Rents and royalties for the use of, or for the privilege of using, intangible personal property located outside the United States or from any interest in such property. Review tax act 2010 Included are rents or royalties for the use, or for the privilege of using, outside the United States, patents, copyrights, secret processes and formulas, goodwill, trademarks, trade brands, franchises, and similar properties if the rents or royalties are from the active conduct of a trade or business in the United States. Review tax act 2010 Dividends, interest, or amounts received for the provision of a guarantee of indebtedness issued after September 27, 2010, from the active conduct of a banking, financing, or similar business in the United States. Review tax act 2010 A substitute dividend or interest payment received under a securities lending transaction or a sale-repurchase transaction is treated the same as the amounts received on the transferred security. Review tax act 2010 Income, gain, or loss from the sale outside the United States, through the U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 office or other fixed place of business, of: Stock in trade, Property that would be included in inventory if on hand at the end of the tax year, or Property held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of business. Review tax act 2010 Item (3) will not apply if you sold the property for use, consumption, or disposition outside the United States and an office or other fixed place of business in a foreign country was a material factor in the sale. Review tax act 2010 Any foreign source income that is equivalent to any item of income described above is treated as effectively connected with a U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 trade or business. Review tax act 2010 For example, foreign source interest and dividend equivalents are treated as U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 effectively connected income if the income is derived by a foreign person in the active conduct of a banking, financing, or similar business within the United States. Review tax act 2010 Tax on Effectively Connected Income Income you receive during the tax year that is effectively connected with your trade or business in the United States is, after allowable deductions, taxed at the rates that apply to U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 citizens and residents. Review tax act 2010 Generally, you can receive effectively connected income only if you are a nonresident alien engaged in trade or business in the United States during the tax year. Review tax act 2010 However, income you receive from the sale or exchange of property, the performance of services, or any other transaction in another tax year is treated as effectively connected in that year if it would have been effectively connected in the year the transaction took place or you performed the services. Review tax act 2010 Example. Review tax act 2010 Ted Richards, a nonresident alien, entered the United States in August 2012, to perform personal services in the U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 office of his overseas employer. Review tax act 2010 He worked in the U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 office until December 25, 2012, but did not leave this country until January 11, 2013. Review tax act 2010 On January 8, 2013, he received his final paycheck for services performed in the United States during 2012. Review tax act 2010 All of Ted's income during his stay here is U. Review tax act 2010 S. Review tax act 2010 source income. Review tax act 2010 During 2012, Ted was engaged in the trade or business of performing personal services in the United States.
