W2 ez forms 2. W2 ez forms   Source of Income Table of Contents Introduction Topics - This chapter discusses: Resident Aliens Nonresident AliensInterest Income Dividends Guarantee of Indebtedness Personal Services Transportation Income Scholarships, Grants, Prizes, and Awards Pensions and Annuities Rents or Royalties Real Property Personal Property Community Income Introduction After you have determined your alien status, you must determine the source of your income. W2 ez forms This chapter will help you determine the source of different types of income you may receive during the tax year. W2 ez forms This chapter also discusses special rules for married individuals who are domiciled in a country with community property laws. W2 ez forms Topics - This chapter discusses: Income source rules, and Community income. W2 ez forms Resident Aliens A resident alien's income is generally subject to tax in the same manner as a U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms citizen. W2 ez forms If you are a resident alien, you must report all interest, dividends, wages, or other compensation for services, income from rental property or royalties, and other types of income on your U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms tax return. W2 ez forms You must report these amounts from sources within and outside the United States. W2 ez forms Nonresident Aliens A nonresident alien usually is subject to U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms income tax only on U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income. W2 ez forms Under limited circumstances, certain foreign source income is subject to U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms tax. W2 ez forms See Foreign Income in chapter 4. W2 ez forms The general rules for determining U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income that apply to most nonresident aliens are shown in Table 2-1. W2 ez forms The following discussions cover the general rules as well as the exceptions to these rules. W2 ez forms Not all items of U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income are taxable. W2 ez forms See chapter 3. W2 ez forms Interest Income Generally, U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source interest income includes the following items. W2 ez forms Interest on bonds, notes, or other interest-bearing obligations of U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms residents or domestic corporations. W2 ez forms Interest paid by a domestic or foreign partnership or foreign corporation engaged in a U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms trade or business at any time during the tax year. W2 ez forms Original issue discount. W2 ez forms Interest from a state, the District of Columbia, or the U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms Government. W2 ez forms The place or manner of payment is immaterial in determining the source of the income. W2 ez forms A substitute interest payment made to the transferor of a security in a securities lending transaction or a sale-repurchase transaction is sourced in the same manner as the interest on the transferred security. W2 ez forms Exceptions. W2 ez forms   U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source interest income does not include the following items. W2 ez forms Interest paid by a resident alien or a domestic corporation on obligations issued before August 10, 2010, if for the 3-year period ending with the close of the payer's tax year preceding the interest payment, at least 80% of the payer's total gross income: Is from sources outside the United States, and Is attributable to the active conduct of a trade or business by the individual or corporation in a foreign country or a U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms possession. W2 ez forms However, the interest will be considered U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source interest income if either of the following apply. W2 ez forms The recipient of the interest is related to the resident alien or domestic corporation. W2 ez forms See section 954(d)(3) for the definition of related person. W2 ez forms The terms of the obligation are significantly modified after August 9, 2010. W2 ez forms Any extension of the term of the obligation is considered a significant modification. W2 ez forms Interest paid by a foreign branch of a domestic corporation or a domestic partnership on deposits or withdrawable accounts with mutual savings banks, cooperative banks, credit unions, domestic building and loan associations, and other savings institutions chartered and supervised as savings and loan or similar associations under federal or state law if the interest paid or credited can be deducted by the association. W2 ez forms Interest on deposits with a foreign branch of a domestic corporation or domestic partnership, but only if the branch is in the commercial banking business. W2 ez forms Dividends In most cases, dividend income received from domestic corporations is U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income. W2 ez forms Dividend income from foreign corporations is usually foreign source income. W2 ez forms Exceptions to both of these rules are discussed below. W2 ez forms A substitute dividend payment made to the transferor of a security in a securities lending transaction or a sale-repurchase transaction is sourced in the same manner as a distribution on the transferred security. W2 ez forms Dividend equivalent payments. W2 ez forms   U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source dividends also include all dividend equivalent payments. W2 ez forms Dividend equivalent payments include substitute dividends, payments made pursuant to a specified notional principal contract, and all similar payments that, directly or indirectly, are contingent on or determined by reference to, the payment of a dividend from U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms sources. W2 ez forms    The Internal Revenue Service has issued final regulations that would affect the treatment of dividend equivalent payments and specified notional principal contracts. W2 ez forms You can view this regulation at www. W2 ez forms irs. W2 ez forms gov/irb/2013-52_IRB/ar08. W2 ez forms html. W2 ez forms First exception. W2 ez forms   Dividends received from a domestic corporation are not U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income if the corporation elects to take the American Samoa economic development credit. W2 ez forms Second exception. W2 ez forms   Part of the dividends received from a foreign corporation is U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income if 25% or more of its total gross income for the 3-year period ending with the close of its tax year preceding the declaration of dividends was effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. W2 ez forms If the corporation was formed less than 3 years before the declaration, use its total gross income from the time it was formed. W2 ez forms Determine the part that is U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income by multiplying the dividend by the following fraction. W2 ez forms   Foreign corporation's gross income connected with a U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms trade or business for the 3-year period     Foreign corporation's gross income from all sources for that period   Guarantee of Indebtedness Certain amounts received directly or indirectly, for the provision of a guarantee of indebtedness issued after September 27, 2010, are U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income. W2 ez forms They must be paid by a noncorporate resident or U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms corporation or by any foreign person if the amounts are effectively connected with the conduct of a U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms trade or business. W2 ez forms For more information, see Internal Revenue Code sections 861(a)(9) and 862(a)(9). W2 ez forms Personal Services All wages and any other compensation for services performed in the United States are considered to be from sources in the United States. W2 ez forms The only exceptions to this rule are discussed in chapter 3 under Employees of foreign persons, organizations, or offices, and under Crew members. W2 ez forms If you are an employee and receive compensation for labor or personal services performed both inside and outside the United States, special rules apply in determining the source of the compensation. W2 ez forms Compensation (other than certain fringe benefits) is sourced on a time basis. W2 ez forms Certain fringe benefits (such as housing and education) are sourced on a geographical basis. W2 ez forms Or, you may be permitted to use an alternative basis to determine the source of compensation. W2 ez forms See Alternative Basis , later. W2 ez forms Multi-level marketing. W2 ez forms   Certain companies sell products through a multi-level marketing arrangement, such that an upper-tier distributor, who has sponsored a lower-tier distributor, is entitled to a payment from the company based on certain activities of that lower-tier distributor. W2 ez forms Generally, depending on the facts, payments from such multi-level marketing companies to independent (non-employee) distributors (upper-tier distributors) that are based on the sales or purchases of persons whom they have sponsored (lower-tier distributors) constitute income for the performance of personal services in recruiting, training, and supporting the lower-tier distributors. W2 ez forms The source of such income is generally based on where the services of the upper-tier distributor are performed, and may, depending on the facts, be considered multi-year compensation, with the source of income determined over the period to which such compensation is attributable. W2 ez forms Self-employed individuals. W2 ez forms   If you are self-employed, you determine the source of compensation 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. W2 ez forms In many cases, the facts and circumstances will call for an apportionment on a time basis as explained next. W2 ez forms Time Basis Use a time basis to figure your U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source compensation (other than the fringe benefits discussed later). W2 ez forms 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 United States 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. W2 ez forms The time period for which the compensation is made does not have to be a year. W2 ez forms 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. W2 ez forms Example 1. W2 ez forms Christina Brooks, a resident of the Netherlands, worked 240 days for a U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms company during the tax year. W2 ez forms She received $80,000 in compensation. W2 ez forms None of it was for fringe benefits. W2 ez forms Christina performed services in the United States for 60 days and performed services in the Netherlands for 180 days. W2 ez forms Using the time basis for determining the source of compensation, $20,000 ($80,000 × 60/240) is her U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income. W2 ez forms Example 2. W2 ez forms Rob Waters, a resident of South Africa, is employed by a corporation. W2 ez forms His annual salary is $100,000. W2 ez forms None of it is for fringe benefits. W2 ez forms During the first quarter of the year he worked entirely within the United States. W2 ez forms On April 1, Rob was transferred to Singapore for the remainder of the year. W2 ez forms Rob is able to establish that the first quarter of the year and the last 3 quarters of the year are two separate, distinct, and continuous periods of time. W2 ez forms Accordingly, $25,000 of Rob's annual salary is attributable to the first quarter of the year (. W2 ez forms 25 × $100,000). W2 ez forms All of it is U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income because he worked entirely within the United States during that quarter. W2 ez forms The remaining $75,000 is attributable to the last three quarters of the year. W2 ez forms During those quarters, he worked 150 days in Singapore and 30 days in the United States. W2 ez forms His periodic performance of services in the United States did not result in distinct, separate, and continuous periods of time. W2 ez forms Of this $75,000, $12,500 ($75,000 × 30/180) is U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income. W2 ez forms Multi-year compensation. W2 ez forms   The source of multi-year compensation is generally determined on a time basis over the period to which the compensation is attributable. W2 ez forms Multi-year compensation is compensation that is included in your income in one tax year but that is attributable to a period that includes two or more tax years. W2 ez forms   You determine the period to which the compensation is attributable based on the facts and circumstances of your case. W2 ez forms For example, an amount of compensation that specifically relates to a period of time that includes several calendar years is attributable to the entire multi-year period. W2 ez forms   The amount of compensation treated as from U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms sources is figured by multiplying the total multi-year compensation by a fraction. W2 ez forms The numerator of the fraction is the number of days (or unit of time less than a day, if appropriate) that you performed labor or personal services in the United States in connection with the project. W2 ez forms The denominator of the fraction is the total number of days (or unit of time less than a day, if appropriate) that you performed labor or personal services in connection with the project. W2 ez forms Geographical Basis Compensation you receive as an employee in the form of the following fringe benefits is sourced on a geographical basis. W2 ez forms Housing. W2 ez forms Education. W2 ez forms Local transportation. W2 ez forms Tax reimbursement. W2 ez forms Hazardous or hardship duty pay as defined in Regulations section 1. W2 ez forms 861-4(b)(2)(ii)(D)(5). W2 ez forms Moving expense reimbursement. W2 ez forms The amount of fringe benefits must be reasonable and you must substantiate them by adequate records or by sufficient evidence. W2 ez forms Principal place of work. W2 ez forms   The above fringe benefits, except for tax reimbursement and hazardous or hardship duty pay, are sourced based on your principal place of work. W2 ez forms Your principal place of work is usually the place where you spend most of your working time. W2 ez forms This could be your office, plant, store, shop, or other location. W2 ez forms If there is no one place where you spend most of your working time, your main job location is the place where your work is centered, such as where you report for work or are otherwise required to “base” your work. W2 ez forms   If you have more than one job at any time, your main job location depends on the facts in each case. W2 ez forms The more important factors to be considered are: The total time you spend at each place, The amount of work you do at each place, and How much money you earn at each place. W2 ez forms Housing. W2 ez forms   The source of a housing fringe benefit is determined based on the location of your principal place of work. W2 ez forms A housing fringe benefit includes payments to you or on your behalf (and your family's if your family resides with you) only for the following. W2 ez forms Rent. W2 ez forms Utilities (except telephone charges). W2 ez forms Real and personal property insurance. W2 ez forms Occupancy taxes not deductible under section 164 or 216(a). W2 ez forms Nonrefundable fees for securing a leasehold. W2 ez forms Rental of furniture and accessories. W2 ez forms Household repairs. W2 ez forms Residential parking. W2 ez forms Fair rental value of housing provided in kind by your employer. W2 ez forms   A housing fringe benefit does not include: Deductible interest and taxes (including deductible interest and taxes of a tenant-stockholder in a cooperative housing corporation), The cost of buying property, including principal payments on a mortgage, The cost of domestic labor (maids, gardeners, etc. W2 ez forms ), Pay television subscriptions, Improvements and other expenses that increase the value or appreciably prolong the life of property, Purchased furniture or accessories, Depreciation or amortization of property or improvements, The value of meals or lodging that you exclude from gross income, or The value of meals or lodging that you deduct as moving expenses. W2 ez forms Education. W2 ez forms   The source of an education fringe benefit for the education expenses of your dependents is determined based on the location of your principal place of work. W2 ez forms An education fringe benefit includes payments only for the following expenses for education at an elementary or secondary school. W2 ez forms Tuition, fees, academic tutoring, special needs services for a special needs student, books, supplies, and other equipment. W2 ez forms Room and board and uniforms that are required or provided by the school in connection with enrollment or attendance. W2 ez forms Local transportation. W2 ez forms   The source of a local transportation fringe benefit is determined based on the location of your principal place of work. W2 ez forms Your local transportation fringe benefit is the amount that you receive as compensation for local transportation for you or your spouse or dependents at the location of your principal place of work. W2 ez forms The amount treated as a local transportation fringe benefit is limited to actual expenses incurred for local transportation and the fair rental value of any employer-provided vehicle used predominantly by you, your spouse, or your dependents for local transportation. W2 ez forms Actual expenses do not include the cost (including interest) of any vehicle purchased by you or on your behalf. W2 ez forms Tax reimbursement. W2 ez forms   The source of a tax reimbursement fringe benefit is determined based on the location of the jurisdiction that imposed the tax for which you are reimbursed. W2 ez forms Moving expense reimbursement. W2 ez forms   The source of a moving expense reimbursement is generally based on the location of your new principal place of work. W2 ez forms However, the source is determined based on the location of your former principal place of work if you provide sufficient evidence that such determination of source is more appropriate under the facts and circumstances of your case. W2 ez forms Sufficient evidence generally requires an agreement between you and your employer, or a written statement of company policy, which is reduced to writing before the move and which is entered into or established to induce you or other employees to move to another country. W2 ez forms The written statement or agreement must state that your employer will reimburse you for moving expenses that you incur to return to your former principal place of work regardless of whether you continue to work for your employer after returning to that location. W2 ez forms It may contain certain conditions upon which the right to reimbursement is determined as long as those conditions set forth standards that are definitely ascertainable and can only be fulfilled prior to, or through completion of, your return move to your former principal place of work. W2 ez forms Alternative Basis If you are an employee, 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 compensation than the time or geographical basis. W2 ez forms 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 compensation. W2 ez forms Also, if your total compensation from all sources is $250,000 or more, check “Yes” to both questions on line K on page 5 of Form 1040NR, and attach a written statement to your tax return that sets forth all of the following. W2 ez forms Your name and social security number (written across the top of the statement). W2 ez forms The specific compensation income, or the specific fringe benefit, for which you are using the alternative basis. W2 ez forms For each item in (2), the alternative basis of allocation of source used. W2 ez forms For each item in (2), a computation showing how the alternative allocation was computed. W2 ez forms A comparison of the dollar amount of the U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms compensation and foreign compensation sourced under both the alternative basis and the time or geographical basis discussed earlier. W2 ez forms Transportation Income Transportation income is income from the use of a vessel or aircraft or for the performance of services directly related to the use of any vessel or aircraft. W2 ez forms This is true whether the vessel or aircraft is owned, hired, or leased. W2 ez forms The term “vessel or aircraft” includes any container used in connection with a vessel or aircraft. W2 ez forms All income from transportation that begins and ends in the United States is treated as derived from sources in the United States. W2 ez forms If the transportation begins or ends in the United States, 50% of the transportation income is treated as derived from sources in the United States. W2 ez forms For transportation income from personal services, 50% of the income is U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income if the transportation is between the United States and a U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms possession. W2 ez forms For nonresident aliens, this only applies to income derived from, or in connection with, an aircraft. W2 ez forms For information on how U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source transportation income is taxed, see chapter 4. W2 ez forms Scholarships, Grants, Prizes, and Awards Generally, the source of scholarships, fellowship grants, grants, prizes, and awards is the residence of the payer regardless of who actually disburses the funds. W2 ez forms However, see Activities to be performed outside the United States , later. W2 ez forms For example, payments for research or study in the United States made by the United States, a noncorporate U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms resident, or a domestic corporation, are from U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms sources. W2 ez forms Similar payments from a foreign government or foreign corporation are foreign source payments even though the funds may be disbursed through a U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms agent. W2 ez forms Payments made by an entity designated as a public international organization under the International Organizations Immunities Act are from foreign sources. W2 ez forms Activities to be performed outside the United States. W2 ez forms   Scholarships, fellowship grants, targeted grants, and achievement awards received by nonresident aliens for activities performed, or to be performed, outside the United States are not U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income. W2 ez forms    These rules do not apply to amounts paid as salary or other compensation for services. W2 ez forms See Personal Services, earlier, for the source rules that apply. W2 ez forms Pensions and Annuities If you receive a pension from a domestic trust for services performed both in and outside the United States, part of the pension payment is from U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms sources. W2 ez forms That part is the amount attributable to earnings of the pension plan and the employer contributions made for services performed in the United States. W2 ez forms This applies whether the distribution is made under a qualified or nonqualified stock bonus, pension, profit-sharing, or annuity plan (whether or not funded). W2 ez forms If you performed services as an employee of the United States, you may receive a distribution from the U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms Government under a plan, such as the Civil Service Retirement System, that is treated as a qualified pension plan. W2 ez forms Your U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income is the otherwise taxable amount of the distribution that is attributable to your total U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms Government basic pay other than tax-exempt pay for services performed outside the United States. W2 ez forms Rents or Royalties Your U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income includes rent and royalty income received during the tax year from property located in the United States or from any interest in that property. W2 ez forms U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income also includes rents or royalties for the use of, or for the privilege of using, in the United States, intangible property such as patents, copyrights, secret processes and formulas, goodwill, trademarks, franchises, and similar property. W2 ez forms Real Property Real property is land and buildings and generally anything built on, growing on, or attached to land. W2 ez forms Gross income from sources in the United States includes gains, profits, and income from the sale or other disposition of real property located in the United States. W2 ez forms Natural resources. W2 ez forms   The income from the sale of products of any farm, mine, oil or gas well, other natural deposit, or timber located in the United States and sold in a foreign country, or located in a foreign country and sold in the United States, is partly from sources in the United States. W2 ez forms For information on determining that part, see section 1. W2 ez forms 863-1(b) of the regulations. W2 ez forms Table 2-1. W2 ez forms Summary of Source Rules for Income of Nonresident Aliens Item of income Factor determining source Salaries, wages, other compensation Where services performed Business income:   Personal services Where services performed Sale of inventory—purchased Where sold Sale of inventory—produced Allocation Interest Residence of payer Dividends Whether a U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms or foreign corporation* Rents Location of property Royalties:   Natural resources Location of property Patents, copyrights, etc. W2 ez forms Where property is used Sale of real property Location of property Sale of personal property Seller's tax home (but see Personal Property , later, for exceptions) Pension distributions attributable to contributions Where services were performed that earned the pension Investment earnings on pension contributions Location of pension trust Sale of natural resources Allocation based on fair market value of product at export terminal. W2 ez forms For more information, see section 1. W2 ez forms 863-1(b) of the regulations. W2 ez forms *Exceptions include: a) Dividends paid by a U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms corporation are foreign source if the corporation elects the  American Samoa economic development credit. W2 ez forms  b) Part of a dividend paid by a foreign corporation is U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source if at least 25% of the  corporation's gross income is effectively connected with a U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms trade or business for the  3 tax years before the year in which the dividends are declared. W2 ez forms Personal Property Personal property is property, such as machinery, equipment, or furniture, that is not real property. W2 ez forms Gain or loss from the sale or exchange of personal property generally has its source in the United States if you have a tax home in the United States. W2 ez forms If you do not have a tax home in the United States, the gain or loss generally is considered to be from sources outside the United States. W2 ez forms Tax home. W2 ez forms   Your tax home is the general area of your main place of business, employment, or post of duty, regardless of where you maintain your family home. W2 ez forms Your tax home is the place where you permanently or indefinitely work as an employee or a self-employed individual. W2 ez forms If you do not have a regular or main place of business because of the nature of your work, then your tax home is the place where you regularly live. W2 ez forms If you do not fit either of these categories, you are considered an itinerant and your tax home is wherever you work. W2 ez forms Inventory property. W2 ez forms   Inventory property 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. W2 ez forms Income from the sale of inventory that you purchased is sourced where the property is sold. W2 ez forms Generally, this is where title to the property passes to the buyer. W2 ez forms For example, income from the sale of inventory in the United States is U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income, whether you purchased it in the United States or in a foreign country. W2 ez forms   Income from the sale of inventory property that you produced in the United States and sold outside the United States (or vice versa) is partly from sources in the United States and partly from sources outside the United States. W2 ez forms For information on making this allocation, see section 1. W2 ez forms 863-3 of the regulations. W2 ez forms   These rules apply even if your tax home is not in the United States. W2 ez forms Depreciable property. W2 ez forms   To determine the source of any gain from the sale of depreciable personal property, you must first figure the part of the gain that is not more than the total depreciation adjustments on the property. W2 ez forms You allocate this part of the gain to sources in the United States based on the ratio of U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms depreciation adjustments to total depreciation adjustments. W2 ez forms The rest of this part of the gain is considered to be from sources outside the United States. W2 ez forms   For this purpose, “U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms depreciation adjustments” are the depreciation adjustments to the basis of the property that are allowable in figuring taxable income from U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms sources. W2 ez forms However, if the property is used predominantly in the United States during a tax year, all depreciation deductions allowable for that year are treated as U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms depreciation adjustments. W2 ez forms But there are some exceptions for certain transportation, communications, and other property used internationally. W2 ez forms   Gain from the sale of depreciable property that is more than the total depreciation adjustments on the property is sourced as if the property were inventory property, as discussed above. W2 ez forms   A loss is sourced in the same way as the depreciation deductions were sourced. W2 ez forms However, if the property was used predominantly in the United States, the entire loss reduces U. W2 ez forms S. W2 ez forms source income. W2 ez forms   The basis of property usually means the cost (money plus the fair market value of other property or services) of property you acquire. W2 ez forms Depreciation is an amount deducted to recover the cost or other basis of a trade or business asset. W2 ez forms The amount you can deduct depends on the property's cost, when you began using the property, how long it will take to recover your cost, and which depreciation method you use. W2 ez forms A depreciation deduction is any deduction for depreciation or amortization or any other allowable deduction that treats a capital expenditure as a deductible expense. W2 ez forms Intangible property. W2 ez forms   Intangible property includes patents, copyrights, secret processes or formulas, goodwill, trademarks, trade names, or other like property. W2 ez forms The gain from the sale of amortizable or depreciable intangible property, up to the previously allowable amortization or depreciation deductions, is sourced in the same way as the original deductions were sourced. W2 ez forms This is the same as the source rule for gain from the sale of depreciable property. W2 ez forms See Depreciable property , earlier, for details on how to apply this rule.
