Turbotax military discount 2011 8% tax on the lesser of the net investment income or the excess of the child's modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) over the threshold amount. Turbotax military discount 2011 Use Form 8960, Net Investment Income Tax, to figure this tax. Turbotax military discount 2011 For more information on NIIT, go to www. Turbotax military discount 2011 irs. Turbotax military discount 2011 gov and enter “Net Investment Income Tax” in the search box.

Turbotax military discount 2011 If the child's interest and dividend income (including capital gain distributions) total less than $10,000, the child's parent may be able to choose to include that income on the parent's return rather than file a return for the child. Turbotax military discount 2011 (See Parent's Election To Report Child's Interest and Dividends , later. Turbotax military discount 2011 ) If the child's interest, dividends, and other unearned income total more than $2,000, part of that income may be taxed at the parent's tax rate instead of the child's tax rate. Turbotax military discount 2011 (See Tax for Certain Children Who Have Unearned Income , later. Turbotax military discount 2011 ) For these rules, the term “child” includes a legally adopted child and a stepchild. Turbotax military discount 2011 These rules apply whether or not the child is a dependent. Turbotax military discount 2011 Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 929 Tax Rules for Children and Dependents Form (and Instructions) 8615 Tax for Certain Children Who Have Unearned Income 8814 Parents' Election To Report Child's Interest and Dividends Which Parent's Return To Use If a child's parents are married to each other and file a joint return, use the joint return to figure the tax on the child's unearned income. Turbotax military discount 2011 The tax rate and other return information from that return are used to figure the child's tax as explained later under Tax for Certain Children Who Have Unearned Income . Turbotax military discount 2011 Parents Who Do Not File a Joint Return For parents who do not file a joint return, the following discussions explain which parent's tax return must be used to figure the tax. Turbotax military discount 2011 Only the parent whose tax return is used can make the election described under Parent's Election To Report Child's Interest and Dividends . Turbotax military discount 2011 Parents are married. Turbotax military discount 2011   If the child's parents file separate returns, use the return of the parent with the greater taxable income. Turbotax military discount 2011 Parents not living together. Turbotax military discount 2011   If the child's parents are married to each other but not living together, and the parent with whom the child lives (the custodial parent) is considered unmarried, use the return of the custodial parent. Turbotax military discount 2011 If the custodial parent is not considered unmarried, use the return of the parent with the greater taxable income. Turbotax military discount 2011   For an explanation of when a married person living apart from his or her spouse is considered unmarried, see Head of Household in chapter 2. Turbotax military discount 2011 Parents are divorced. Turbotax military discount 2011   If the child's parents are divorced or legally separated, and the parent who had custody of the child for the greater part of the year (the custodial parent) has not remarried, use the return of the custodial parent. Turbotax military discount 2011 Custodial parent remarried. Turbotax military discount 2011   If the custodial parent has remarried, the stepparent (rather than the noncustodial parent) is treated as the child's other parent. Turbotax military discount 2011 Therefore, if the custodial parent and the stepparent file a joint return, use that joint return. Turbotax military discount 2011 Do not use the return of the noncustodial parent. Turbotax military discount 2011   If the custodial parent and the stepparent are married, but file separate returns, use the return of the one with the greater taxable income. Turbotax military discount 2011 If the custodial parent and the stepparent are married but not living together, the earlier discussion under Parents not living together applies. Turbotax military discount 2011 Parents never married. Turbotax military discount 2011   If a child's parents have never been married to each other, but lived together all year, use the return of the parent with the greater taxable income. Turbotax military discount 2011 If the parents did not live together all year, the rules explained earlier under Parents are divorced apply. Turbotax military discount 2011 Widowed parent remarried. Turbotax military discount 2011   If a widow or widower remarries, the new spouse is treated as the child's other parent. Turbotax military discount 2011 The rules explained earlier under Custodial parent remarried apply. Turbotax military discount 2011 Parent's Election To Report Child's Interest and Dividends You may be able to elect to include your child's interest and dividend income (including capital gain distributions) on your tax return. Turbotax military discount 2011 If you do, your child will not have to file a return. Turbotax military discount 2011 You can make this election only if all the following conditions are met.

Turbotax military discount 2011 The child does not file a joint return for the year. Turbotax military discount 2011 No estimated tax payment was made for the year, and no overpayment from the previous year (or from any amended return) was applied to this year under your child's name and social security number. Turbotax military discount 2011 No federal income tax was taken out of your child's income under the backup withholding rules. Turbotax military discount 2011 You are the parent whose return must be used when applying the special tax rules for children. Turbotax military discount 2011 (See Which Parent's Return To Use , earlier. Turbotax military discount 2011 ) These conditions are also shown in Figure 31-A. Turbotax military discount 2011 Certain January 1 birthdays. Turbotax military discount 2011   A child born on January 1, 1995, is considered to be age 19 at the end of 2013. Turbotax military discount 2011 You cannot make this election for such a child unless the child was a full-time student. Turbotax military discount 2011   A child born on January 1, 1990, is considered to be age 24 at the end of 2013. Turbotax military discount 2011 You cannot make this election for such a child. Turbotax military discount 2011 Full-time student. Turbotax military discount 2011   A full-time student is a child who during some part of each of any 5 calendar months of the year was enrolled as a full-time student at a school, or took a full-time on-farm training course given by a school or a state, county, or local government agency.

Turbotax military discount 2011 It does not include an on-the-job training course, correspondence school, or school offering courses only through the Internet. Turbotax military discount 2011 How to make the election. Turbotax military discount 2011   Make the election by attaching Form 8814 to your Form 1040. Turbotax military discount 2011 (If you make this election, you cannot file Form 1040A or Form 1040EZ.

Turbotax military discount 2011 Effect of Making the Election The federal income tax on your child's income may be more if you make the Form 8814 election. Turbotax military discount 2011 Rate may be higher. Turbotax military discount 2011   If your child received qualified dividends or capital gain distributions, you may pay up to $100 more tax if you make this election instead of filing a separate tax return for the child. Turbotax military discount 2011 This is because the tax rate on the child's income between $1,000 and $2,000 is 10% if you make this election. Turbotax military discount 2011 However, if you file a separate return for the child, the tax rate may be as low as 0% (zero percent) because of the preferential tax rates for qualified dividends and capital gain distributions. Turbotax military discount 2011 Deductions you cannot take. Turbotax military discount 2011   By making the Form 8814 election, you cannot take any of the following deductions that the child would be entitled to on his or her return. Turbotax military discount 2011 The additional standard deduction if the child is blind. Turbotax military discount 2011 The deduction for a penalty on an early withdrawal of your child's savings. Turbotax military discount 2011 Itemized deductions (such as your child's investment expenses or charitable contributions). Turbotax military discount 2011 Reduced deductions or credits. Turbotax military discount 2011   If you use Form 8814, your increased adjusted gross income may reduce certain deductions or credits on your return including the following. Turbotax military discount 2011 Deduction for contributions to a traditional individual retirement arrangement (IRA). Turbotax military discount 2011 Deduction for student loan interest. Turbotax military discount 2011 Itemized deductions for medical expenses, casualty and theft losses, and certain miscellaneous expenses. Turbotax military discount 2011 Credit for child and dependent care expenses. Turbotax military discount 2011 Child tax credit. Turbotax military discount 2011 Education tax credits. Turbotax military discount 2011 Earned income credit. Turbotax military discount 2011 Penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. Turbotax military discount 2011   If you make this election for 2013 and did not have enough tax withheld or pay enough estimated tax to cover the tax you owe, you may be subject to a penalty. Turbotax military discount 2011 If you plan to make this election for 2014, you may need to increase your federal income tax withholding or your estimated tax payments to avoid the penalty. Turbotax military discount 2011 See chapter 4 for more information. Turbotax military discount 2011 Figuring Child's Income Use Form 8814, Part I, to figure your child's interest and dividend income to report on your return. Turbotax military discount 2011 Only the amount over $2,000 is added to your income. Turbotax military discount 2011 The amount over $2,000 is shown on Form 8814, line 6.

Turbotax military discount 2011 If your child's dividend income included any qualified dividends, see Qualified dividends under Figuring Child's Income in Publication 929, Part 2. Turbotax military discount 2011 Figuring Additional Tax Use Form 8814, Part II, to figure the tax on the $2,000 of your child's interest and dividends that you do not include in your income. Turbotax military discount 2011 This tax is added to the tax figured on your income.

Turbotax military discount 2011   If the parent and the child do not have the same tax year, complete Form 8615 using the information on the parent's return for the tax year that ends in the child's tax year. Turbotax military discount 2011 Parent's return information not known timely. Turbotax military discount 2011   If the information needed from the parent's return is not known by the time the child's return is due (usually April 15), you can file the return using estimates. Turbotax military discount 2011   You can use any reasonable estimate. Turbotax military discount 2011 This includes using information from last year's return. Turbotax military discount 2011 If you use an estimated amount on Form 8615, enter “Estimated” on the line next to the amount. Turbotax military discount 2011    When you get the correct information, file an amended return on Form 1040X, Amended U. Turbotax military discount 2011 S.

Turbotax military discount 2011 S. Turbotax military discount 2011 Individual Income Tax Return. Turbotax military discount 2011 Extensions are discussed in chapter 1. Turbotax military discount 2011 Step 1. Turbotax military discount 2011 Figuring the Child's Net Unearned Income (Form 8615, Part I) The first step in figuring a child's tax using Form 8615 is to figure the child's net unearned income. Turbotax military discount 2011 To do that, use Form 8615, Part I. Turbotax military discount 2011 Line 1 (unearned income). Turbotax military discount 2011   If the child had no earned income, enter on this line the adjusted gross income shown on the child's return. Turbotax military discount 2011 Adjusted gross income is shown on Form 1040, line 38, or Form 1040A, line 22. Turbotax military discount 2011 Form 1040EZ cannot be used if Form 8615 must be filed. Turbotax military discount 2011   If the child had earned income, figure the amount to enter on Form 8615, line 1, by using the worksheet in the instructions for the form. Turbotax military discount 2011   However, if the child has: excluded any foreign earned income, deducted either a loss from self-employment, or deducted a net operating loss from another year, then use the Alternate Worksheet for Form 8615, Line 1, in Publication 929 to figure the amount to enter on Form 8615, line 1. Turbotax military discount 2011 Unearned income defined. Turbotax military discount 2011   Unearned income is generally all income other than salaries, wages, and other amounts received as pay for work actually done. Turbotax military discount 2011 It includes taxable interest, dividends (including capital gain distributions), capital gains, unemployment compensation, the taxable part of social security and pension payments, and certain distributions from trusts. Turbotax military discount 2011 Unearned income includes amounts produced by assets the child obtained with earned income (such as interest on a savings account into which the child deposited wages). Turbotax military discount 2011 Nontaxable income. Turbotax military discount 2011   For this purpose, unearned income includes only amounts the child must include in total income. Turbotax military discount 2011 Nontaxable unearned income, such as tax-exempt interest and the nontaxable part of social security and pension payments, is not included. Turbotax military discount 2011 Income from property received as a gift. Turbotax military discount 2011   A child's unearned income includes all income produced by property belonging to the child. Turbotax military discount 2011 This is true even if the property was transferred to the child, regardless of when the property was transferred or purchased or who transferred it. Turbotax military discount 2011   A child's unearned income includes income produced by property given as a gift to the child. Turbotax military discount 2011 This includes gifts to the child from grandparents or any other person and gifts made under the Uniform Gift to Minors Act. Turbotax military discount 2011 Example. Turbotax military discount 2011 Amanda Black, age 13, received the following income. Turbotax military discount 2011 Dividends — $800 Wages — $2,100 Taxable interest — $1,200 Tax-exempt interest — $100 Net capital gains — $100 The dividends were qualified dividends on stock given to her by her grandparents. Turbotax military discount 2011 Amanda's unearned income is $2,100. Turbotax military discount 2011 This is the total of the dividends ($800), taxable interest ($1,200), and net capital gains ($100). Turbotax military discount 2011 Her wages are earned (not unearned) income because they are received for work actually done. Turbotax military discount 2011 Her tax-exempt interest is not included because it is nontaxable. Turbotax military discount 2011 Trust income. Turbotax military discount 2011   If a child is the beneficiary of a trust, distributions of taxable interest, dividends, capital gains, and other unearned income from the trust are unearned income to the child. Turbotax military discount 2011   However, for purposes of completing Form 8615, a taxable distribution from a qualified disability trust is considered earned income, not unearned income. Turbotax military discount 2011 Line 2 (deductions). Turbotax military discount 2011   If the child does not itemize deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040), enter $2,000 on line 2. Turbotax military discount 2011   If the child does itemize deductions, enter on line 2 the larger of: $1,000 plus the portion of the child's itemized deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 29, that are directly connected with the production of unearned income entered on line 1, or $2,000. Turbotax military discount 2011 Directly connected. Turbotax military discount 2011   Itemized deductions are directly connected with the production of unearned income if they are for expenses paid to produce or collect taxable income or to manage, conserve, or maintain property held for producing income. Turbotax military discount 2011 These expenses include custodian fees and service charges, service fees to collect taxable interest and dividends, and certain investment counsel fees. Turbotax military discount 2011   These expenses are added to certain other miscellaneous itemized deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). Turbotax military discount 2011 Only the amount greater than 2% of the child's adjusted gross income can be deducted. Turbotax military discount 2011 See chapter 28 for more information. Turbotax military discount 2011 Example 1. Turbotax military discount 2011 Roger, age 12, has unearned income of $8,000, no other income, no adjustments to income, and itemized deductions of $300 (net of the 2% limit) that are directly connected with his unearned income. Turbotax military discount 2011 His adjusted gross income is $8,000, which is entered on Form 1040, line 38, and on Form 8615, line 1. Turbotax military discount 2011 Roger enters $2,000 on line 2 because that is more than the total of $1,000 plus his directly connected itemized deductions of $300. Turbotax military discount 2011 Example 2. Turbotax military discount 2011 Eleanor, age 8, has unearned income of $16,000 and an early withdrawal penalty of $100. Turbotax military discount 2011 She has no other income. Turbotax military discount 2011 She has itemized deductions of $1,050 (net of the 2% limit) that are directly connected with the production of her unearned income. Turbotax military discount 2011 Her adjusted gross income, entered on line 1, is $15,900 ($16,000 − $100). Turbotax military discount 2011 The amount on line 2 is $2,050. Turbotax military discount 2011 This is the larger of: $1,000 plus the $1,050 of directly connected itemized deductions, or $2,000. Turbotax military discount 2011 Line 3. Turbotax military discount 2011   Subtract line 2 from line 1 and enter the result on this line. Turbotax military discount 2011 If zero or less, do not complete the rest of the form. Turbotax military discount 2011 However, you must still attach Form 8615 to the child's tax return. Turbotax military discount 2011 Figure the tax on the child's taxable income in the normal manner. Turbotax military discount 2011 Line 4 (child's taxable income). Turbotax military discount 2011   Enter on line 4 the child's taxable income from Form 1040, line 43, or Form 1040A, line 27. Turbotax military discount 2011   However, if the child files Form 2555 or 2555-EZ to claim the foreign earned income exclusion, housing exclusion, or housing deduction, see the Form 8615 instructions or Pub. Turbotax military discount 2011 929. Turbotax military discount 2011 Line 5 (net unearned income). Turbotax military discount 2011   A child's net unearned income cannot be more than his or her taxable income. Turbotax military discount 2011 Enter on Form 8615, line 5, the smaller of line 3 or line 4. Turbotax military discount 2011 This is the child's net unearned income. Turbotax military discount 2011   If zero or less, do not complete the rest of the form. Turbotax military discount 2011 However, you must still attach Form 8615 to the child's tax return. Turbotax military discount 2011 Figure the tax on the child's taxable income in the normal manner. Turbotax military discount 2011 Step 2. Turbotax military discount 2011 Figuring Tentative Tax at the Parent's Tax Rate (Form 8615, Part II) The next step in completing Form 8615 is to figure a tentative tax on the child's net unearned income at the parent's tax rate. Turbotax military discount 2011 The tentative tax at the parent's tax rate is the difference between the tax on the parent's taxable income figured with the child's net unearned income (plus the net unearned income of any other child whose Form 8615 includes the tax return information of that parent) and the tax figured without it. Turbotax military discount 2011 When figuring the tentative tax at the parent's tax rate on Form 8615, do not refigure any of the exclusions, deductions, or credits on the parent's return because of the child's net unearned income. Turbotax military discount 2011 For example, do not refigure the medical expense deduction. Turbotax military discount 2011 Figure the tentative tax on Form 8615, lines 6 through 13. Turbotax military discount 2011 Note. Turbotax military discount 2011 If the child or parent has any capital gains or losses, get Publication 929 for help in completing Form 8615, Part II. Turbotax military discount 2011 Line 6 (parent's taxable income). Turbotax military discount 2011   Enter on line 6 the parent's taxable income from Form 1040, line 43, Form 1040A, line 27, or Form 1040EZ, line 6. Turbotax military discount 2011   If the Foreign Earned Income Tax Worksheet (in the Form 1040 instructions) was used to figure the parent's tax, enter the amount from line 3 of that worksheet instead of the parent's taxable income. Turbotax military discount 2011 Line 7 (net unearned income of other children). Turbotax military discount 2011   If the tax return information of the parent is also used on any other child's Form 8615, enter on line 7 the total of the amounts from line 5 of all the other children's Forms 8615. Turbotax military discount 2011 Do not include the amount from line 5 of the Form 8615 being completed. Turbotax military discount 2011 Example. Turbotax military discount 2011 Paul and Jane Persimmon have three children, Sharon, Jerry, and Mike, who must attach Form 8615 to their tax returns. Turbotax military discount 2011 The children's net unearned income amounts on line 5 of their Forms 8615 are: Sharon — $800 Jerry — $600 Mike — $1,000 Line 7 of Sharon's Form 8615 will show $1,600, the total of the amounts on line 5 of Jerry's and Mike's Forms 8615. Turbotax military discount 2011 Line 7 of Jerry's Form 8615 will show $1,800 ($800 + $1,000). Turbotax military discount 2011 Line 7 of Mike's Form 8615 will show $1,400 ($800 + $600). Turbotax military discount 2011 Other children's information not available. Turbotax military discount 2011   If the net unearned income of the other children is not available when the return is due, either file the return using estimates or get an extension of time to file. Turbotax military discount 2011 See Parent's return information not known timely , earlier. Turbotax military discount 2011 Line 11 (tentative tax). Turbotax military discount 2011   Subtract line 10 from line 9 and enter the result on this line. Turbotax military discount 2011 This is the tentative tax. Turbotax military discount 2011   If line 7 is blank, skip lines 12a and 12b and enter the amount from line 11 on line 13. Turbotax military discount 2011 Also skip the discussion for lines 12a and 12b that follows. Turbotax military discount 2011 Lines 12a and 12b (dividing the tentative tax). Turbotax military discount 2011   If an amount is entered on line 7, divide the tentative tax shown on line 11 among the children according to each child's share of the total net unearned income. Turbotax military discount 2011 This is done on lines 12a, 12b, and 13. Turbotax military discount 2011 Add the amount on line 7 to the amount on line 5 and enter the total on line 12a. Turbotax military discount 2011 Divide the amount on line 5 by the amount on line 12a and enter the result, as a decimal, on line 12b. Turbotax military discount 2011 Example. Turbotax military discount 2011 In the earlier example under Line 7 (net unearned income of other children), Sharon's Form 8615 shows $1,600 on line 7. Turbotax military discount 2011 The amount entered on line 12a is $2,400, the total of the amounts on lines 5 and 7 ($800 + $1,600). Turbotax military discount 2011 The decimal on line 12b is  . Turbotax military discount 2011 333, figured as follows and rounded to three places. Turbotax military discount 2011   $800 = . Turbotax military discount 2011 333     $2,400   Step 3. Turbotax military discount 2011 Figuring the Child's Tax (Form 8615, Part III) The final step in figuring a child's tax using Form 8615 is to determine the larger of: The total of: The child's share of the tentative tax based on the parent's tax rate, plus The tax on the child's taxable income in excess of net unearned income, figured at the child's tax rate, or The tax on the child's taxable income, figured at the child's tax rate. Turbotax military discount 2011 This is the child's tax. Turbotax military discount 2011 It is figured on Form 8615, lines 14 through 18. Turbotax military discount 2011 Alternative minimum tax. Turbotax military discount 2011   A child may be subject to alternative minimum tax (AMT) if he or she has certain items given preferential treatment under the tax law. Turbotax military discount 2011 See Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) in chapter 30. Turbotax military discount 2011    For more information on who is liable for AMT and how to figure it, see Form 6251, Alternative Minimum Tax—Individuals. Turbotax military discount 2011 For information on special limits that apply to a child who files Form 6251, see Certain Children Under Age 24 in the Instructions for Form 6251.
