Turbotax Freedom Edition

Turbotax freedom edition 2. Turbotax freedom edition   Possession Source Income Table of Contents Types of IncomeCompensation for Labor or Personal Services Investment Income Sales or Other Dispositions of Property Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, Prizes, and Awards Effectively Connected Income In order to determine where to file your return and which form(s) you need to complete, you must determine the source of each item of income you received during the tax year. Turbotax freedom edition Income you received from sources within, or that was effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business within, the relevant possession must be identified separately from U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition or foreign source income. Turbotax freedom edition This chapter discusses the rules for determining if the source of your income is from: American Samoa, The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico), Guam, or The U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition Virgin Islands (USVI). Turbotax freedom edition Generally, the same rules that apply for determining U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition source income also apply for determining possession source income. Turbotax freedom edition However, there are some important exceptions to these rules. Turbotax freedom edition Both the general rules and the exceptions are discussed in this chapter. Turbotax freedom edition U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition income rule. Turbotax freedom edition   This rule states that income is not possession source income if, under the rules of Internal Revenue Code sections 861–865, it is treated as income: From sources within the United States, or Effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business within the United States. Turbotax freedom edition Table 2-1 shows the general rules for determining whether income is from sources within the United States. Turbotax freedom edition Table 2-1. Turbotax freedom edition General Rules for Determining U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition Source of Income Item of Income Factor Determining Source Salaries, wages, and other compensation for labor or personal services Where labor or services performed Pensions Contributions: Where services were performed that earned the pension Investment earnings: Where pension trust is located Interest Residence of payer Dividends Where corporation created or organized Rents Location of property Royalties:   Natural resources Location of property Patents, copyrights, etc. Turbotax freedom edition Where property is used Sale of business inventory—purchased Where sold Sale of business inventory—produced Allocation if produced and sold in different locations Sale of real property Location of property Sale of personal property Seller's tax home (but see Special Rules for Gains From Dispositions of Certain Property , later, for exceptions) Sale of natural resources Allocation based on fair market value of product at export terminal. Turbotax freedom edition For more information, see Regulations section 1. Turbotax freedom edition 863-1(b). Turbotax freedom edition Types of Income This section looks at the most common types of income received by individuals, and the rules for determining the source of the income. Turbotax freedom edition Generally, the same rules shown in Table 2-1 are used to determine if you have possession source income. Turbotax freedom edition Compensation for Labor or Personal Services Income from labor or personal services includes wages, salaries, commissions, fees, per diem allowances, employee allowances and bonuses, and fringe benefits. Turbotax freedom edition It also includes income earned by sole proprietors and general partners from providing personal services in the course of their trade or business. Turbotax freedom edition Services performed wholly within a relevant possession. Turbotax freedom edition   Generally, all pay you receive for services performed in a relevant possession is considered to be from sources within that possession. Turbotax freedom edition However, there is an exception for income earned as a member of the U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition Armed Forces or a civilian spouse. Turbotax freedom edition U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition Armed Forces. Turbotax freedom edition   If you are a bona fide resident of a relevant possession, your military service pay will be sourced in that possession even if you perform the services in the United States or another possession. Turbotax freedom edition However, if you are not a bona fide resident of a possession, your military service pay will be income from the  United States even if you perform services in a possession. Turbotax freedom edition Civilian spouse of active duty member of the U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition Armed Forces. Turbotax freedom edition   If you are a bona fide resident of a U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition possession and choose to keep that possession as your tax residence under MSRRA when relocating with your servicemember spouse under military orders, the source of income for your labor or personal services is considered to be that possession. Turbotax freedom edition Likewise, if your tax residence is in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia before relocating and you choose to keep it as your tax residence, the source of income for services performed in any of the U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition possessions is considered to be the United States and, specifically, your state of residence or the District of Columbia. Turbotax freedom edition Services performed partly inside and partly outside a relevant possession. Turbotax freedom edition   If you are an employee and receive compensation for labor or personal services performed both inside and outside the relevant possession, special rules apply in determining the source of the compensation. Turbotax freedom edition Compensation (other than certain fringe benefits) is sourced on a time basis. Turbotax freedom edition Certain fringe benefits (such as housing and education) are sourced on a geographical basis. Turbotax freedom edition   Or, you may be permitted to use an alternative basis to determine the source of compensation. Turbotax freedom edition See Alternative basis , later. Turbotax freedom edition   If you are self-employed, determine the source of your income for labor or personal services from self-employment on the basis that most correctly reflects the proper source of that income under the facts and circumstances of your particular case. Turbotax freedom edition In many cases, the facts and circumstances will call for an apportionment on a time basis as explained next. Turbotax freedom edition Time basis. Turbotax freedom edition   Use a time basis to figure your compensation for labor or personal services from the relevant possession (other than the fringe benefits discussed later). Turbotax freedom edition Do this by multiplying your total compensation (other than the fringe benefits discussed later) by the following fraction:   Number of days you performed  services in the relevant  possession during the year     Total number of days you  performed services during the year           You can use a unit of time less than a day in the above fraction, if appropriate. Turbotax freedom edition The time period for which the income is made does not have to be a year. Turbotax freedom edition Instead, you can use another distinct, separate, and continuous time period if you can establish to the satisfaction of the IRS that this other period is more appropriate. Turbotax freedom edition Example. Turbotax freedom edition In 2013, you worked in your employer's office in the United States for 60 days and in the Puerto Rico office for 180 days, earning a total of $80,000 for the year. Turbotax freedom edition Your Puerto Rico source income is $60,000, figured as follows. Turbotax freedom edition       180 days 240 days × $80,000 = $60,000                 Multi-year compensation. Turbotax freedom edition   The source of multi-year compensation is generally determined on a time basis over the period to which the compensation is attributable. Turbotax freedom edition Multi-year compensation is compensation that is included in your income in 1 tax year but is attributable to a period that includes 2 or more tax years. Turbotax freedom edition You determine the period to which the income is attributable based on the facts and circumstances of your case. Turbotax freedom edition For more information on multi-year compensation, see Treasury Decision (T. Turbotax freedom edition D. Turbotax freedom edition ) 9212 and Regulations section 1. Turbotax freedom edition 861-4, 2005-35 I. Turbotax freedom edition R. Turbotax freedom edition B. Turbotax freedom edition 429, available at www. Turbotax freedom edition irs. Turbotax freedom edition gov/irb/2005-35_IRB/ar14. Turbotax freedom edition html. Turbotax freedom edition Certain fringe benefits sourced on a geographical basis. Turbotax freedom edition   If you received any of the following fringe benefits as compensation for labor or services performed as an employee partly inside and partly outside a relevant possession, you must source that income on a geographical basis. Turbotax freedom edition Housing. Turbotax freedom edition Education. Turbotax freedom edition Local transportation. Turbotax freedom edition Tax reimbursement. Turbotax freedom edition Hazardous or hardship duty pay. Turbotax freedom edition Moving expense reimbursement. Turbotax freedom edition For information on determining the source of the fringe benefits listed above, see Regulations section 1. Turbotax freedom edition 861-4. Turbotax freedom edition Alternative basis. Turbotax freedom edition   You can determine the source of your compensation under an alternative basis if you establish to the satisfaction of the IRS that, under the facts and circumstances of your case, the alternative basis more properly determines the source of your income than the time or geographical basis. Turbotax freedom edition If you use an alternative basis, you must keep (and have available for inspection) records to document why the alternative basis more properly determines the source of your income. Turbotax freedom edition De minimis exception. Turbotax freedom edition   There is an exception to the rule for determining the source of income earned in a possession. Turbotax freedom edition Generally, you will not have income from a possession if during a tax year you: Are a U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition citizen or resident, Are not a bona fide resident of that possession, Are not employed by or under contract with an individual, partnership, or corporation that is engaged in a trade or business in that possession, Temporarily perform services in that possession for 90 days or less, and Earned $3,000 or less from such services. Turbotax freedom edition This exception began with income earned during your 2008 tax year. Turbotax freedom edition Pensions. Turbotax freedom edition   Generally, pension income has two components: contributions to the pension plan and the earnings accrued from investing those contributions. Turbotax freedom edition The contribution portion is sourced according to where services were performed that earned the pension. Turbotax freedom edition The investment earnings portion is sourced according to the location of the pension trust. Turbotax freedom edition Example. Turbotax freedom edition You are a U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition citizen who worked in Puerto Rico for a U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition company. Turbotax freedom edition All services were performed in Puerto Rico. Turbotax freedom edition Upon retirement you remained in Puerto Rico and began receiving your pension from the U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition pension trust of your employer. Turbotax freedom edition Distributions from the U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition pension trust must be allocated between (1) contributions, which are Puerto Rico source income, and (2) investment earnings, which are U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition source income. Turbotax freedom edition Investment Income This category includes such income as interest, dividends, rents, and royalties. Turbotax freedom edition Interest income. Turbotax freedom edition   The source of interest income is generally determined by the residence of the payer. Turbotax freedom edition Interest paid by corporations created or organized in a relevant possession (possession corporation) or by individuals who are bona fide residents of a relevant possession is considered income from sources within that possession. Turbotax freedom edition   However, there is an exception to this rule if you are a bona fide resident of a relevant possession, receive interest from a corporation created or organized in that possession, and are a shareholder of that corporation who owns, directly or indirectly, at least 10% of the total voting stock of the corporation. Turbotax freedom edition See Regulations section 1. Turbotax freedom edition 937-2(i) for more information. Turbotax freedom edition Dividends. Turbotax freedom edition   Generally, dividends paid by a corporation created or organized in a relevant possession will be considered income from sources within that possession. Turbotax freedom edition There are additional rules for bona fide residents of a relevant possession who receive dividend income from possession corporations, and who own, directly or indirectly, at least 10% of the voting stock of the corporation. Turbotax freedom edition For more information, see Regulations section 1. Turbotax freedom edition 937-2(g). Turbotax freedom edition Rental income. Turbotax freedom edition   Rents from property located in a relevant possession are treated as income from sources within that possession. Turbotax freedom edition Royalties. Turbotax freedom edition   Royalties from natural resources located in a relevant possession are considered income from sources within that possession. Turbotax freedom edition   Also considered possession source income are royalties received for the use of, or for the privilege of using, in a relevant possession, patents, copyrights, secret processes and formulas, goodwill, trademarks, trade brands, franchises, and other like property. Turbotax freedom edition Sales or Other Dispositions of Property The source rules for sales or other dispositions of property are varied. Turbotax freedom edition The most common situations are discussed below. Turbotax freedom edition Real property. Turbotax freedom edition   Real property includes land and buildings, and generally anything built on, growing on, or attached to land. Turbotax freedom edition The location of the property generally determines the source of income from the sale. Turbotax freedom edition For example, if you are a bona fide resident of Guam and sell your home that is located in Guam, the gain on the sale is sourced in Guam. Turbotax freedom edition If, however, the home you sold was located in the United States, the gain is U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition source income. Turbotax freedom edition Personal property. Turbotax freedom edition   The term “personal property” refers to property (such as machinery, equipment, or furniture) that is not real property. Turbotax freedom edition Generally, gain (or loss) from the sale or other disposition is sourced according to the seller's tax home. Turbotax freedom edition If personal property is sold by a bona fide resident of a relevant possession, the gain (or loss) from the sale is treated as sourced within that possession. Turbotax freedom edition   This rule does not apply to the sale of inventory, intangible property, depreciable personal property, or property sold through a foreign office or fixed place of business. Turbotax freedom edition The rules applying to sales of inventory are discussed below. Turbotax freedom edition For information on sales of the other types of property mentioned, see Internal Revenue Code section 865. Turbotax freedom edition Inventory. Turbotax freedom edition   Your inventory is personal property that is stock in trade or that is held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of your trade or business. Turbotax freedom edition The source of income from the sale of inventory depends on whether the inventory was purchased or produced. Turbotax freedom edition Purchased. Turbotax freedom edition   Income from the sale of inventory that you purchased is sourced where you sell the property. Turbotax freedom edition Generally, this is where title to the property passes to the buyer. Turbotax freedom edition Produced. Turbotax freedom edition   Income from the sale of inventory that you produced in a relevant possession and sold outside that possession (or vice versa) is sourced based on an allocation. Turbotax freedom edition For information on making the allocation, see Regulations section 1. Turbotax freedom edition 863-3(f). Turbotax freedom edition Special Rules for Gains From Dispositions of Certain Property There are special rules for gains from dispositions of certain investment property (for example, stocks, bonds, debt instruments, diamonds, and gold) owned by a U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition citizen or resident alien prior to becoming a bona fide resident of a possession. Turbotax freedom edition You are subject to these special rules if you meet both of the following conditions. Turbotax freedom edition For the tax year for which the source of the gain must be determined, you are a bona fide resident of the relevant possession. Turbotax freedom edition For any of the 10 years preceding that year, you were a citizen or resident alien of the United States (other than a bona fide resident of the relevant possession). Turbotax freedom edition If you meet these conditions, gains from the disposition of this property will not be treated as income from sources within the relevant possession for purposes of the Internal Revenue Code. Turbotax freedom edition Accordingly, bona fide residents of American Samoa and Puerto Rico, for example, may not exclude the gain on their U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition tax return. Turbotax freedom edition (See chapter 3 for additional filing information. Turbotax freedom edition ) With respect to the CNMI, Guam, and the USVI, the gain from the disposition of this property will not meet the requirements for certain tax rules that may allow bona fide residents of those possessions to reduce or obtain a rebate of taxes on income from sources within the relevant possessions. Turbotax freedom edition These rules apply to dispositions after April 11, 2005. Turbotax freedom edition For details, see Regulations section 1. Turbotax freedom edition 937-2(f)(1) and Examples 1 and 2 of section 1. Turbotax freedom edition 937-2(k). Turbotax freedom edition Example 1. Turbotax freedom edition In 2007, Cheryl Jones, a U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition citizen, lived in the United States and paid $1,000 for 100 shares of stock in the Rose Corporation, a U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition corporation listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Turbotax freedom edition On March 1, 2010, she moved to Puerto Rico and changed her tax home to Puerto Rico on the same date. Turbotax freedom edition Cheryl satisfied the presence test in 2010 and, under the year-of-move exception, she was considered a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico for the rest of 2010. Turbotax freedom edition On March 1, 2010, the closing value of Cheryl's stock in the Rose Corporation was $2,000. Turbotax freedom edition On January 5, 2013, while still a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico, Cheryl sold all her Rose Corporation stock for $7,000. Turbotax freedom edition Under the earlier rules, none of Cheryl's $6,000 gain will be treated as income from sources within Puerto Rico. Turbotax freedom edition The source rules discussed in the preceding paragraphs supplement, and may apply in conjunction with, an existing special rule. Turbotax freedom edition This existing special rule applies if you are a U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition citizen or resident alien who becomes a bona fide resident of American Samoa, the CNMI, or Guam, and who has gain from the disposition of certain U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition assets during the 10-year period beginning when you became a bona fide resident. Turbotax freedom edition The gain is U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition source income that generally is subject to U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition tax if the property is either (1) located in the United States; (2) stock issued by a U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition corporation or a debt obligation of a U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition person or of the United States, a state (or political subdivision), or the District of Columbia; or (3) property that has a basis in whole or in part by reference to property described in (1) or (2). Turbotax freedom edition See chapter 3 for filing information. Turbotax freedom edition Special election. Turbotax freedom edition   For dispositions after April 11, 2005, you can choose to treat the part of gain (or loss) attributable to the time you held the property while a bona fide resident of the relevant possession (the possession holding period) as gain (or loss) from sources within that possession. Turbotax freedom edition Make the election by reporting the gain attributable to the possession holding period on your income tax return for the year of disposition. Turbotax freedom edition This election overrides both of the special rules discussed earlier. Turbotax freedom edition   There are two methods for figuring the gain for the possession holding period, one for marketable securities and another for other types of investment property. Turbotax freedom edition Marketable securities. Turbotax freedom edition   Marketable securities are those actively traded on an established financial market, such as stock in a publicly held corporation. Turbotax freedom edition Under the special election, allocate the gain (or loss) by figuring the appreciation separately for your possession and U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition holding periods. Turbotax freedom edition   Your possession holding period begins on the first day you do not have a tax home outside the relevant possession. Turbotax freedom edition The gain (or loss) attributable to the possession holding period is the difference in fair market value of the security at the close of the market on the first and last days of this holding period. Turbotax freedom edition This is your gain (or loss) that is treated as being from sources within the relevant possession. Turbotax freedom edition If you were a bona fide resident of the relevant possession for more than one continuous period, combine the gains (or losses) from each possession holding period. Turbotax freedom edition Example 2. Turbotax freedom edition Assume the same facts as in Example 1, except that Cheryl makes the special election to allocate the gain between her U. Turbotax freedom edition S. Turbotax freedom edition and possession holding periods. Turbotax freedom edition Cheryl's possession holding period began March 1, 2010, the date her tax home changed to Puerto Rico. Turbotax freedom edition Therefore, the portion of gain attributable to her possession holding period is $5,000 ($7,000 sale price – $2,000 closing value on first day of the possession holding period). Turbotax freedom edition By reporting $5,000 of her $6,000 gain as Puerto Rico source income on her 2013 Puerto Rico tax return (and the remainder as non-Puerto Rico source income), Cheryl elects to treat that amount as Puerto Rico source income. Turbotax freedom edition Other personal property. Turbotax freedom edition   For personal property other than marketable securities, use a time-based allocation. Turbotax freedom edition Figure the gain (or loss) attributable to the possession holding period by multiplying your total gain (or loss) by the following fraction. Turbotax freedom edition      Number of days in the  possession holding period     Total number of days  in your holding period         The result is your gain (or loss) that is treated as being from sources within the relevant possession. Turbotax freedom edition Example 3. Turbotax freedom edition In addition to the stock in Rose Corporation, Cheryl acquired a 5% interest in the Alder Partnership on January 1, 2009. Turbotax freedom edition On March 1, 2010, when she established bona fide residency in Puerto Rico, her partnership interest was not considered a marketable security. Turbotax freedom edition On September 16, 2013, while still a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico, Cheryl sold her interest in Alder Partnership for a $100,000 gain. Turbotax freedom edition She had owned the interest for a total of 1,720 days. Turbotax freedom edition Cheryl's possession holding period (from March 1, 2010, through September 16, 2013) is 1,296 days. Turbotax freedom edition The portion of her gain attributable to Puerto Rico is $75,349 ($100,000 x (1,296 Puerto Rico days ÷ 1,720 total days)). Turbotax freedom edition By reporting $75,349 of her $100,000 gain as Puerto Rico source income on her 2013 Puerto Rico tax return (and the remainder as non-Puerto Rico source income), Cheryl elects to treat that amount as Puerto Rico source income. Turbotax freedom edition Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, Prizes, and Awards The source of these types of income is generally the residence of the payer, regardless of who actually disburses the funds. Turbotax freedom edition Therefore, in order to be possession source income, the payer must be a resident of the relevant possession, such as an individual who is a bona fide resident or a corporation created or organized in that possession. Turbotax freedom edition These rules do not apply to amounts paid as salary or other compensation for services. Turbotax freedom edition See Compensation for Labor or Personal Services, earlier in this chapter, for the source rules that apply. Turbotax freedom edition Effectively Connected Income In limited circumstances, some kinds of income from sources outside the relevant possession must be treated as effectively connected with a trade or business in that possession. Turbotax freedom edition These circumstances are listed below. Turbotax freedom edition You have an office or other fixed place of business in the relevant possession to which the income can be attributed. Turbotax freedom edition That office or place of business is a material factor in producing the income. Turbotax freedom edition The income is produced in the ordinary course of the trade or business carried on through that office or other fixed place of business. Turbotax freedom edition 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. Turbotax freedom edition The three kinds of income from sources outside the relevant possession to which these rules apply are the following. Turbotax freedom edition Rents and royalties for the use of, or for the privilege of using, intangible personal property located outside the relevant possession or from any interest in such property. Turbotax freedom edition Included are rents or royalties for the use of, or for the privilege of using, outside the relevant possession, 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 relevant possession. Turbotax freedom edition Dividends or interest from the active conduct of a banking, financing, or similar business in the relevant possession. Turbotax freedom edition Income, gain, or loss from the sale or exchange outside the relevant possession, through the office or other fixed place of business in the relevant possession, 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. Turbotax freedom edition Item (3) will not apply if you sold the property for use, consumption, or disposition outside the relevant possession and an office or other fixed place of business in a foreign country was a material factor in the sale. Turbotax freedom edition Example. Turbotax freedom edition Marcy Jackson is a bona fide resident of American Samoa. Turbotax freedom edition Her business, which she conducts from an office in American Samoa, is developing and selling specialized computer software. Turbotax freedom edition A software purchaser will frequently pay Marcy an additional amount to install the software on the purchaser's operating system and to ensure that the software is functioning properly. Turbotax freedom edition Marcy installs the software at the purchaser's place of business, which may be in American Samoa, in the United States, or in another country. Turbotax freedom edition The income from selling the software is effectively connected with the conduct of Marcy's business in American Samoa, even though the product's destination may be outside the possession. Turbotax freedom edition However, the compensation she receives for installing the software (personal services) outside of American Samoa is not effectively connected with the conduct of her business in the possession—the income is sourced where she performs the services.
