Turbotax 2011 Deluxe

Turbotax 2011 deluxe It is critical that business owners correctly determine whether the individuals providing services are employees or independent contractors. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Generally, you must withhold income taxes, withhold and pay Social Security and Medicare taxes, and pay unemployment tax on wages paid to an employee. You do not generally have to withhold or pay any taxes on payments to independent contractors. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Select the Scenario that Applies to You: Turbotax 2011 deluxe I am an independent contractor or in business for myself Turbotax 2011 deluxe If you are a business owner or contractor who provides services to other businesses, then you are generally considered self-employed. For more information on your tax obligations if you are self-employed (an independent contractor), see our Self-Employed Tax Center. Turbotax 2011 deluxe I hire or contract with individuals to provide services to my business Turbotax 2011 deluxe If you are a business owner hiring or contracting with other individuals to provide services, you must determine whether the individuals providing services are employees or independent contractors. Follow the rest of this page to find out more about this topic and what your responsibilities are. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Determining Whether the Individuals Providing Services are Employees or Independent Contractors Turbotax 2011 deluxe Before you can determine how to treat payments you make for services, you must first know the business relationship that exists between you and the person performing the services. The person performing the services may be - Turbotax 2011 deluxe An independent contractor Turbotax 2011 deluxe An employee (common-law employee) Turbotax 2011 deluxe A statutory employee Turbotax 2011 deluxe A statutory nonemployee Turbotax 2011 deluxe In determining whether the person providing service is an employee or an independent contractor, all information that provides evidence of the degree of control and independence must be considered. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Common Law Rules Turbotax 2011 deluxe Facts that provide evidence of the degree of control and independence fall into three categories: Turbotax 2011 deluxe Behavioral: Does the company control or have the right to control what the worker does and how the worker does his or her job? Turbotax 2011 deluxe Financial: Are the business aspects of the worker’s job controlled by the payer? (these include things like how worker is paid, whether expenses are reimbursed, who provides tools/supplies, etc.) Turbotax 2011 deluxe Type of Relationship: Are there written contracts or employee type benefits (i.e. pension plan, insurance, vacation pay, etc.)? Will the relationship continue and is the work performed a key aspect of the business? Turbotax 2011 deluxe Businesses must weigh all these factors when determining whether a worker is an employee or independent contractor. Some factors may indicate that the worker is an employee, while other factors indicate that the worker is an independent contractor. There is no “magic” or set number of factors that “makes” the worker an employee or an independent contractor, and no one factor stands alone in making this determination. Also, factors which are relevant in one situation may not be relevant in another. Turbotax 2011 deluxe The keys are to look at the entire relationship, consider the degree or extent of the right to direct and control, and finally, to document each of the factors used in coming up with the determination. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Form SS-8 Turbotax 2011 deluxe If, after reviewing the three categories of evidence, it is still unclear whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor, Form SS-8, Determination of Worker Status for Purposes of Federal Employment Taxes and Income Tax Withholding (PDF) can be filed with the IRS. The form may be filed by either the business or the worker. The IRS will review the facts and circumstances and officially determine the worker’s status. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Be aware that it can take at least six months to get a determination, but a business that continually hires the same types of workers to perform particular services may want to consider filing the Form SS-8 (PDF).

The Turbotax 2011 Deluxe

Turbotax 2011 deluxe Publication 3402 - Main Content Table of Contents What is a Limited Liability Company? Classification of an LLC LLCs Classified as Partnerships LLCs Classified as Disregarded Entities LLCs Classified as Corporations Subsequent Elections How To Get More InformationInternal Revenue Service Small Business Administration Other Federal Agencies What is a Limited Liability Company? For purposes of this publication, a limited liability company (LLC) is a business entity organized in the United States under state law. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Unlike a partnership, all of the members of an LLC have limited personal liability for its debts. Turbotax 2011 deluxe An LLC may be classified for federal income tax purposes as a partnership, corporation, or an entity disregarded as separate from its owner by applying the rules in Regulations section 301. Turbotax 2011 deluxe 7701-3. Turbotax 2011 deluxe The information in this publication applies to LLCs in general, and different rules may apply to special situations, including banks, insurance companies, or nonprofit organizations that are LLCs or that own LLCs. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Check your state's requirements and the federal tax regulations for further information. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Classification of an LLC Default classification rules. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   An LLC with at least two members is classified as a partnership for federal income tax purposes. Turbotax 2011 deluxe An LLC with only one member is treated as an entity disregarded as separate from its owner for income tax purposes (but as a separate entity for purposes of employment tax and certain excise taxes). Turbotax 2011 deluxe Also, an LLC's federal tax classification can subsequently change under certain default rules discussed later. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Elected classification. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   If an LLC does not choose to be classified under the above default classifications, it can elect to be classified as an association taxable as a corporation or as an S corporation. Turbotax 2011 deluxe After an LLC has determined its federal tax classification, it can later elect to change that classification. Turbotax 2011 deluxe For details, see Subsequent Elections, later. Turbotax 2011 deluxe LLCs Classified as Partnerships If an LLC has at least two members and is classified as a partnership, it generally must file Form 1065, U. Turbotax 2011 deluxe S. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Return of Partnership Income. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Generally, an LLC classified as a partnership is subject to the same filing and reporting requirements as partnerships. Turbotax 2011 deluxe For certain purposes, members of an LLC are treated as limited partners in a limited partnership. Turbotax 2011 deluxe For example, LLC members are treated as limited partners for purposes of material participation under the passive activity limitation rules (see Temporary Regulation section 1. Turbotax 2011 deluxe 469-5T(e)). Turbotax 2011 deluxe See the Instructions for Form 1065 for reporting rules that apply specifically to LLCs. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Member manager. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   Only a member manager of an LLC can sign the partnership tax return. Turbotax 2011 deluxe And only a member manager can represent the LLC as the tax matters partner under the consolidated audit proceedings in sections 6221 through 6234. Turbotax 2011 deluxe A member manager is any owner of an interest in the LLC who, alone or together with others, has the continuing authority to make the management decisions necessary to conduct the business for which the LLC was formed. Turbotax 2011 deluxe If there are no elected or designated member managers, each owner is treated as a member manager. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Change in default classification. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   If the number of members in an LLC classified as a partnership is reduced to only one member, it becomes an entity disregarded as separate from its owner under Regulations section 301. Turbotax 2011 deluxe 7701-3(f)(2). Turbotax 2011 deluxe However, if the LLC has made an election to be classified as a corporation (discussed later) and that elective classification is in effect at the time of the change in membership, the default classification as a disregarded entity will not apply. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   Other tax consequences of a change in membership, such as recognition of gain or loss, are determined by the transactions through which an interest in the LLC is acquired or disposed of. Turbotax 2011 deluxe If a partnership that becomes a disregarded entity as a result of a decrease in the number of members makes an election to be classified as a corporation, the applicable deemed transactions discussed under Subsequent Elections, later, apply. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Example 1. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Ethel and Francis are members of an LLC classified as a partnership for federal tax purposes. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Each holds an equal membership interest. Turbotax 2011 deluxe The LLC does not hold any unrealized receivables or substantially appreciated inventory. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Ethel sells her entire interest in the LLC to Francis for $10,000. Turbotax 2011 deluxe After the sale, the business is continued by the LLC, which is owned solely by Francis. Turbotax 2011 deluxe No entity classification election is made after the sale to treat the LLC as a corporation for federal tax purposes. Turbotax 2011 deluxe The partnership terminates when Francis buys Ethel's entire interest. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Ethel must treat the transaction as the sale of a partnership interest and must report gain or loss, if any, resulting from the sale of her partnership interest. Turbotax 2011 deluxe For purposes of determining the tax treatment of Francis, the partnership is deemed to make a liquidating distribution of all of its assets to Ethel and Francis, and after this distribution, Francis is treated as acquiring the assets deemed to have been distributed to Ethel in liquidation of Ethel's partnership interest. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Francis's basis in the assets attributable to Ethel's one-half interest in the partnership is $10,000, the purchase price for Ethel's partnership interest. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Upon the termination of the partnership, Francis is considered to receive a distribution of those assets attributable to Francis's former interest in the partnership. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Francis must recognize gain or loss, if any, on the deemed distribution of the assets to the extent required by Internal Revenue Code section 731(a). Turbotax 2011 deluxe See Partnership Distributions in Publication 541. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Example 2. Turbotax 2011 deluxe George and Henrietta are members of an LLC classified as a partnership for federal tax purposes. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Each holds an equal membership interest. Turbotax 2011 deluxe The LLC does not hold any unrealized receivables or substantially appreciated inventory. Turbotax 2011 deluxe George and Henrietta each sell their entire interests in the LLC to Ian, an unrelated person, in exchange for $10,000. Turbotax 2011 deluxe After the sale, the business is continued by the LLC, which is owned solely by Ian. Turbotax 2011 deluxe No entity classification election is made after the sale to treat the LLC as a corporation for federal tax purposes. Turbotax 2011 deluxe The partnership terminates when Ian purchases the entire interests of George and Henrietta in the LLC. Turbotax 2011 deluxe George and Henrietta must report gain or loss, if any, resulting from the sale of their partnership interests. Turbotax 2011 deluxe For purposes of classifying the acquisition by Ian, the partnership is deemed to make a liquidating distribution of its assets to George and Henrietta. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Immediately following this distribution, Ian is deemed to acquire, by purchase, all of the former partnership's assets. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   For more details on the preceding two examples, see Revenue Ruling 99-6, 1999-6 I. Turbotax 2011 deluxe R. Turbotax 2011 deluxe B. Turbotax 2011 deluxe 6. Turbotax 2011 deluxe You can find Revenue Ruling 99-6 at www. Turbotax 2011 deluxe irs. Turbotax 2011 deluxe gov/pub/irs-irbs/irb99-06. Turbotax 2011 deluxe pdf. Turbotax 2011 deluxe LLCs Classified as Disregarded Entities If an LLC has only one member and is classified as an entity disregarded as separate from its owner, its income, deductions, gains, losses, and credits are reported on the owner's income tax return. Turbotax 2011 deluxe For example, if the owner of the LLC is an individual, the LLC's income and expenses would be reported on the following schedules filed with the owner's Form 1040: Schedule C, Profit or Loss from Business (Sole Proprietorship); Schedule C-EZ, Net Profit From Business (Sole Proprietorship); Schedule E, Supplemental Income and Loss; or Schedule F, Profit or Loss From Farming. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Employment tax and certain excise taxes. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   A single-member LLC that is classified as a disregarded entity for income tax purposes is treated as a separate entity for purposes of employment tax and certain excise taxes. Turbotax 2011 deluxe For wages paid after January 1, 2009, the single-member LLC is required to use its name and employer identification number (EIN) for reporting and payment of employment taxes. Turbotax 2011 deluxe A single-member LLC is also required to use its name and EIN to register for excise tax activities on Form 637; pay and report excise taxes reported on Forms 720, 730, 2290, and 11-C; and claim any refunds, credits, and payments on Form 8849. Turbotax 2011 deluxe See the employment and excise tax returns for more information. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Self-employment tax rule for disregarded entity LLCs. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   An individual owner of a single-member LLC classified as a disregarded entity is not an employee of the LLC. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Instead, the owner is subject to tax on the net earnings from self-employment of the LLC which is treated in the same manner as a sole-proprietorship. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Example 3. Turbotax 2011 deluxe LLC is a disregarded entity owned by Irene. Turbotax 2011 deluxe LLC has three employees (Kent, Patricia, and Tex) and pays wages. Turbotax 2011 deluxe LLC is treated as an entity separate from its owner for purposes of employment taxes. Turbotax 2011 deluxe For the wages paid to Kent, Patricia, and Tex, LLC is liable for income tax withholding, Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) taxes, and Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA) taxes. Turbotax 2011 deluxe In addition, LLC must file under its name and EIN the applicable employment tax returns; make timely employment tax deposits; and file with the Social Security Administration and furnish to LLC's employees (Kent, Patricia, and Tex) Forms W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Irene is self-employed for purposes of the self-employment tax. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Thus, Irene is subject to self-employment tax on her net earnings from self-employment with respect to LLC's activities. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Irene is not an employee of LLC for purposes of employment taxes. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Because LLC is treated as a sole proprietorship of Irene for income tax purposes, Irene must report the income and expenses from LLC on her Schedule C. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Irene will figure the tax due on her net earnings from self-employment on Schedule SE. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Irene can also deduct one-half of her self-employment tax on line 27 of her Form 1040. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Taxpayer identification number. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   For all income tax purposes, a single-member LLC classified as a disregarded entity must use the owner's social security number (SSN) or EIN. Turbotax 2011 deluxe This includes all information returns and reporting related to income tax. Turbotax 2011 deluxe For example, if a disregarded entity LLC that is owned by an individual is required to provide a Form W-9, Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification, the LLC must provide the owner's SSN or EIN, not the LLC's EIN. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   However, most new single-member LLCs classified as a disregarded entity will need to obtain an EIN for the LLC. Turbotax 2011 deluxe An LLC will need an EIN if it has any employees or if it will be required to file any of the excise tax forms listed above (see Employment tax and certain excise taxes earlier). Turbotax 2011 deluxe See Form SS-4, Application for Employer Identification Number, for information on applying for an EIN. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Change in default classification. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   If a single-member LLC classified as a disregarded entity for income tax purposes acquires an additional member, it becomes a partnership under Regulations section 301. Turbotax 2011 deluxe 7701-3(f)(2). Turbotax 2011 deluxe However, if the LLC has made an election to be classified as a corporation (discussed later) and that elective classification is in effect at the time of the change in membership, the default classification as a partnership will not apply. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   Other tax consequences of a change in membership, such as recognition of gain or loss, are determined by the transactions through which an interest in the LLC is acquired or disposed of. Turbotax 2011 deluxe If a disregarded entity that becomes a partnership as a result of an increase in the number of members makes an election to be classified as a corporation, the applicable deemed transactions discussed in Subsequent Elections, later, apply. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Example 4. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Bart, who is not related to Alain, buys 50% of Alain's interest in an LLC that is a disregarded entity for $5,000. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Alain does not contribute any portion of the $5,000 to the LLC. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Alain and Bart continue to operate the business of the LLC as co-owners of the LLC. Turbotax 2011 deluxe The LLC is converted to a partnership when the new member, Bart, buys an interest in the disregarded entity from the owner, Alain. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Bart's buying a 50% interest in Alain's ownership interest in the LLC is treated as Bart's buying a 50% interest in each of the LLC's assets, which are treated as owned directly by Alain for federal income tax purposes. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Immediately thereafter, Alain and Bart are treated as contributing their respective interests in those assets to a partnership in exchange for ownership interests in the partnership. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Alain recognizes gain or loss from the deemed sale to Bart of the 50% interest in the assets. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Neither Alain nor Bart recognizes any gain or loss as a result of the deemed contribution of the assets to the partnership. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Example 5. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Charles, who is not related to Danielle, contributes $10,000 to an LLC owned by Danielle for a 50% ownership interest in the LLC. Turbotax 2011 deluxe The LLC uses all of the contributed cash in its business. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Charles and Danielle continue to operate the business of the LLC as co-owners of the LLC. Turbotax 2011 deluxe The LLC is converted from a disregarded entity to a partnership when Charles contributes cash to the LLC. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Charles's contribution is treated as a contribution to a partnership in exchange for an ownership interest in the partnership. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Danielle is treated as contributing all of the assets of the LLC to the partnership in exchange for a partnership interest. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Neither Charles nor Danielle recognizes gain or loss as a result of the conversion of the disregarded entity to a partnership. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   For more details on the preceding two examples, see Revenue Ruling 99-5, 1999-6 I. Turbotax 2011 deluxe R. Turbotax 2011 deluxe B. Turbotax 2011 deluxe 8. Turbotax 2011 deluxe You can find Revenue Ruling 99-5 at www. Turbotax 2011 deluxe irs. Turbotax 2011 deluxe gov/pub/irs-irbs/irb99-06. Turbotax 2011 deluxe pdf. Turbotax 2011 deluxe LLCs Classified as Corporations An LLC with either a single member or more than one member can elect to be classified as a corporation rather than be classified as a partnership or disregarded entity under the default rules discussed earlier. Turbotax 2011 deluxe File Form 8832, Entity Classification Election, to elect classification as a C corporation. Turbotax 2011 deluxe File Form 2553, Election by a Small Business Corporation, to elect classification as an S corporation. Turbotax 2011 deluxe LLCs electing classification as an S corporation are not required to file Form 8832 to elect classification as a corporation before filing Form 2553. Turbotax 2011 deluxe By filing Form 2553, an LLC is deemed to have elected classification as a corporation in addition to the S corporation classification. Turbotax 2011 deluxe If the LLC elects to be classified as a corporation by filing Form 8832, a copy of the LLC's Form 8832 must be attached to the federal income tax return of each direct and indirect owner of the LLC for the tax year of the owner that includes the date on which the election took effect. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Example 6. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Classification as a corporation without an S election. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Wanda and Sylvester are members of an LLC. Turbotax 2011 deluxe They agree that the LLC should be classified as a corporation but do not want to elect to have the LLC be treated as an S corporation. Turbotax 2011 deluxe The LLC must file Form 8832. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Example 7. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Classification as a corporation with an S election. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Evelyn and Carol are members of an LLC. Turbotax 2011 deluxe They agree that the LLC should be classified as an S corporation. Turbotax 2011 deluxe The LLC must file Form 2553 instead of Form 8832. Turbotax 2011 deluxe If the LLC is classified as a corporation, it must file a corporation income tax return. Turbotax 2011 deluxe If it is a C corporation, it is taxed on its taxable income and distributions to the members are includible in the members' gross income to the extent of the corporation's earnings and profits (double taxation). Turbotax 2011 deluxe If it is an S corporation, the corporation is generally not subject to any income tax and the income, deductions, gains, losses, and credits of the corporation “pass through” to the members. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Corporations generally file either: Form 1120, U. Turbotax 2011 deluxe S. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Corporation Income Tax Return; or Form 1120S, U. Turbotax 2011 deluxe S. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Income Tax Return for an S Corporation. Turbotax 2011 deluxe For more information on the income taxation of corporations and their shareholders, see Publication 542, Corporations. Turbotax 2011 deluxe For more information on the income taxation of S corporations and their shareholders, see the Instructions for Form 1120S, U. Turbotax 2011 deluxe S. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Income Tax Return for an S Corporation. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Subsequent Elections An LLC can elect to change its classification. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Generally, once an LLC has elected to change its classification, it cannot elect again to change it classification during the 60 months after the effective date of the election. Turbotax 2011 deluxe An election by a newly formed LLC that is effective on the date of formation is not considered a change for purposes of this limitation. Turbotax 2011 deluxe For more information and exceptions, see Regulations section 301. Turbotax 2011 deluxe 7701-3(c) and the Form 8832 instructions. Turbotax 2011 deluxe An election to change classification can have significant tax consequences based on the following transactions that are deemed to occur as a result of the election. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Partnership to corporation. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   An election to change classification from a partnership to a corporation will be treated as if the partnership contributed all of its assets and liabilities to the corporation in exchange for stock and the partnership then immediately liquidated by distributing the stock to its partners. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   For more information, see Partnership Distributions in Publication 541 and Property Exchanged for Stock in Publication 542. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Corporation to partnership. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   An election to change classification from a corporation to a partnership will be treated as if the corporation distributed all of its assets and liabilities to its shareholders in liquidation and the shareholders then immediately contributed all of the distributed assets and liabilities to a new partnership. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   For more information, see Contribution of Property in Publication 541 and Distributions to Shareholders in Publication 542. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Corporation to disregarded entity. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   An election to change classification from a corporation to a disregarded entity will be treated as if the corporation distributed all of its assets and liabilities to its single owner in liquidation. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   For more information, see Distributions to Shareholders in Publication 542. Turbotax 2011 deluxe Disregarded entity to corporation. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   An election to change classification from a disregarded entity to a corporation will be treated as if the owner of the disregarded entity contributed all of the assets and liabilities to the corporation in exchange for stock. Turbotax 2011 deluxe   For more information, see Property Exchanged for Stock in Publication 542.
