Walmart free tax preparation 2013 These are cash payments certain people receive from a state or local agency that administers public assistance programs funded under the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program in return for certain work activities such as (1) work experience activities (including remodeling or repairing public housing) if private sector employment is not available, or (2) community service program activities. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Community property. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   If you are married, but qualify to file as head of household under special rules for married taxpayers living apart (see Rule 3 ), and live in a state that has community property laws, your earned income for the EIC does not include any amount earned by your spouse that is treated as belonging to you under those laws. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 That amount is not earned income for the EIC, even though you must include it in your gross income on your income tax return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your earned income includes the entire amount you earned, even if part of it is treated as belonging to your spouse under your state's community property laws.

Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you meet all the rules in Part A and this part, read Part D to find out what to do next. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you do not meet Rule 8, you do not have a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Read Part C to find out if you can get the earned income credit without a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Rule 8. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your Child Must Meet the Relationship, Age, Residency, and Joint Return Tests Your child is a qualifying child if your child meets four tests. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The four tests are: Relationship, Age, Residency, and Joint return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The four tests are illustrated in Figure 36–1. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The paragraphs that follow contain more information about each test. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Relationship Test To be your qualifying child, a child must be your: Son, daughter, stepchild, foster child, or a descendant of any of them (for example, your grandchild), or Brother, sister, half brother, half sister, stepbrother, stepsister, or a descendant of any of them (for example, your niece or nephew). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The following definitions clarify the relationship test. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Adopted child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   An adopted child is always treated as your own child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The term “adopted child” includes a child who was lawfully placed with you for legal adoption. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Foster child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   For the EIC, a person is your foster child if the child is placed with you by an authorized placement agency or by judgement, decree, or other order of any court of competent jurisdiction. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 An authorized placement agency includes a state or local government agency. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 It also includes a tax-exempt organization licensed by a state. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 In addition, it includes an Indian tribal government or an organization authorized by an Indian tribal government to place Indian children. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Debbie, who is 12 years old, was placed in your care 2 years ago by an authorized agency responsible for placing children in foster homes. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Debbie is your foster child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Age Test Your child must be: Under age 19 at the end of 2013 and younger than you (or your spouse, if filing jointly), Under age 24 at the end of 2013, a student, and younger than you (or your spouse, if filing jointly), or Permanently and totally disabled at any time during 2013, regardless of age. Walmart free tax preparation 2013    The following examples and definitions clarify the age test. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 1—child not under age 19. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your son turned 19 on December 10. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Unless he was permanently and totally disabled or a student, he is not a qualifying child because, at the end of the year, he was not under age 19. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 2—child not younger than you or your spouse. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your 23-year-old brother, who is a full-time student and unmarried, lives with you and your spouse. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 He is not disabled. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Both you and your spouse are 21 years old and you file a joint return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your brother is not your qualifying child because he is not younger than you or your spouse. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 3—child younger than your spouse but not younger than you. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The facts are the same as in Example 2 except that your spouse is 25 years old. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Because your brother is younger than your spouse, he is your qualifying child even though he is not younger than you. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Student defined. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   To qualify as a student, your child must be, during some part of each of any 5 calendar months during the calendar year: A full-time student at a school that has a regular teaching staff, course of study, and regular student body at the school, or A student taking a full-time, on-farm training course given by a school described in (1), or a state, county, or local government. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The 5 calendar months need not be consecutive. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   A full-time student is a student who is enrolled for the number of hours or courses the school considers to be full-time attendance. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 School defined. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   A school can be an elementary school, junior or senior high school, college, university, or technical, trade, or mechanical school. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 However, on-the-job training courses, correspondence schools, and schools offering courses only through the Internet do not count as schools for the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Vocational high school students. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   Students who work in co-op jobs in private industry as a part of a school's regular course of classroom and practical training are considered full-time students. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Permanently and totally disabled. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   Your child is permanently and totally disabled if both of the following apply. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 He or she cannot engage in any substantial gainful activity because of a physical or mental condition. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 A doctor determines the condition has lasted or can be expected to last continuously for at least a year or can lead to death. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Residency Test Your child must have lived with you in the United States for more than half of 2013. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The following definitions clarify the residency test. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 United States. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   This means the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 It does not include Puerto Rico or U. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 S. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 possessions such as Guam. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Homeless shelter. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   Your home can be any location where you regularly live. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You do not need a traditional home. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 For example, if your child lived with you for more than half the year in one or more homeless shelters, your child meets the residency test. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Military personnel stationed outside the United States. Walmart free tax preparation 2013    U. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 S. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 military personnel stationed outside the United States on extended active duty are considered to live in the United States during that duty period for purposes of the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Figure 36-1. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Tests for Qualifying Child Please click here for the text description of the image. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Qualifying child Extended active duty. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   Extended active duty means you are called or ordered to duty for an indefinite period or for a period of more than 90 days. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Once you begin serving your extended active duty, you are still considered to have been on extended active duty even if you do not serve more than 90 days. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Birth or death of a child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   A child who was born or died in 2013 is treated as having lived with you for more than half of 2013 if your home was the child's home for more than half the time he or she was alive in 2013. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Temporary absences. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   Count time that you or your child is away from home on a temporary absence due to a special circumstance as time the child lived with you. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Examples of a special circumstance include illness, school attendance, business, vacation, military service, and detention in a juvenile facility. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Kidnapped child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013    A kidnapped child is treated as living with you for more than half of the year if the child lived with you for more than half the part of the year before the date of the kidnapping. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The child must be presumed by law enforcement authorities to have been kidnapped by someone who is not a member of your family or your child's family. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 This treatment applies for all years until the child is returned. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 However, the last year this treatment can apply is the earlier of: The year there is a determination that the child is dead, or The year the child would have reached age 18. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   If your qualifying child has been kidnapped and meets these requirements, enter “KC,” instead of a number, on line 6 of Schedule EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Joint Return Test To meet this test, the child cannot file a joint return for the year. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Exception. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   An exception to the joint return test applies if your child and his or her spouse file a joint return only to claim a refund of income tax withheld or estimated tax paid. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 1—child files joint return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You supported your 18-year-old daughter, and she lived with you all year while her husband was in the Armed Forces. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 He earned $25,000 for the year. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The couple files a joint return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Because your daughter and her husband filed a joint return, she is not your qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 2—child files joint return only to claim a refund of withheld tax. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your 18-year-old son and his 17-year-old wife had $800 of wages from part-time jobs and no other income. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 They do not have a child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Neither is required to file a tax return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Taxes were taken out of their pay, so they filed a joint return only to get a refund of the withheld taxes. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The exception to the joint return test applies, so your son may be your qualifying child if all the other tests are met. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 3—child files joint return to claim American opportunity credit. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The facts are the same as in Example 2 except no taxes were taken out of your son's pay. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 He and his wife are not required to file a tax return, but they file a joint return to claim an American opportunity credit of $124 and get a refund of that amount. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Because claiming the American opportunity credit is their reason for filing the return, they are not filing it only to get a refund of income tax withheld or estimated tax paid. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The exception to the joint return test does not apply, so your son is not your qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Married child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   Even if your child does not file a joint return, if your child was married at the end of the year, he or she cannot be your qualifying child unless: You can claim an exemption for the child, or The reason you cannot claim an exemption for the child is that you let the child's other parent claim the exemption under the Special rule for divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart) , described later. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Social security number. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   The qualifying child must have a valid social security number (SSN) unless the child was born and died in 2013 and you attach to your return a copy of the child's birth certificate, death certificate, or hospital records showing a live birth. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You cannot claim the EIC on the basis of a qualifying child if: The qualifying child's SSN is missing from your tax return or is incorrect, The qualifying child's social security card says “Not valid for employment” and was issued for use in getting a federally funded benefit, or Instead of an SSN, the qualifying child has: An individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN), which is issued to a noncitizen who cannot get an SSN, or An adoption taxpayer identification number (ATIN), which is issued to adopting parents who cannot get an SSN for the child being adopted until the adoption is final. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   If you have more than one qualifying child and only one has a valid SSN, you can use only that child to claim the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 For more information about SSNs, see Rule 2 . Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Rule 9. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your Qualifying Child Cannot Be Used By More Than One Person To Claim the EIC Sometimes a child meets the tests to be a qualifying child of more than one person. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 However, only one of these persons can actually treat the child as a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Only that person can use the child as a qualifying child to take all of the following tax benefits (provided the person is eligible for each benefit). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The exemption for the child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The child tax credit. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Head of household filing status. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The credit for child and dependent care expenses. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The exclusion for dependent care benefits. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The other person cannot take any of these benefits based on this qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 In other words, you and the other person cannot agree to divide these tax benefits between you. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The other person cannot take any of these tax benefits unless he or she has a different qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The tiebreaker rules explained next explain who, if anyone, can claim the EIC when more than one person has the same qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 However, the tiebreaker rules do not apply if the other person is your spouse and you file a joint return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Tiebreaker rules. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   To determine which person can treat the child as a qualifying child to claim the six tax benefits just listed, the following tiebreaker rules apply. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If only one of the persons is the child's parent, the child is treated as the qualifying child of the parent. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If the parents file a joint return together and can claim the child as a qualifying child, the child is treated as the qualifying child of the parents. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If the parents do not file a joint return together but both parents claim the child as a qualifying child, the IRS will treat the child as the qualifying child of the parent with whom the child lived for the longer period of time during the year. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If the child lived with each parent for the same amount of time, the IRS will treat the child as the qualifying child of the parent who had the higher adjusted gross income (AGI) for the year. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If no parent can claim the child as a qualifying child, the child is treated as the qualifying child of the person who had the highest AGI for the year. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If a parent can claim the child as a qualifying child but no parent does so claim the child, the child is treated as the qualifying child of the person who had the highest AGI for the year, but only if that person's AGI is higher than the highest AGI of any of the child's parents who can claim the child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If the child's parents file a joint return with each other, this rule can be applied by treating the parents' total AGI as divided evenly between them. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 See Example 8 . Walmart free tax preparation 2013   Subject to these tiebreaker rules, you and the other person may be able to choose which of you claims the child as a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 See Examples 1 through 13 . Walmart free tax preparation 2013   If you cannot claim the EIC because your qualifying child is treated under the tiebreaker rules as the qualifying child of another person for 2013, you may be able to take the EIC using a different qualifying child, but you cannot take the EIC using the rules in Part C for people who do not have a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If the other person cannot claim the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   If you and someone else have the same qualifying child but the other person cannot claim the EIC because he or she is not eligible or his or her earned income or AGI is too high, you may be able to treat the child as a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 See Examples 6 and 7 . Walmart free tax preparation 2013 But you cannot treat the child as a qualifying child to claim the EIC if the other person uses the child to claim any of the other six tax benefits listed earlier. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Examples. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The following examples may help you in determining whether you can claim the EIC when you and someone else have the same qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 1. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You and your 2-year-old son Jimmy lived with your mother all year. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You are 25 years old, unmarried, and your AGI is $9,000. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your only income was $9,000 from a part-time job. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your mother's only income was $20,000 from her job, and her AGI is $20,000. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Jimmy's father did not live with you or Jimmy. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The special rule explained later for divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart) does not apply. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Jimmy is a qualifying child of both you and your mother because he meets the relationship, age, residency, and joint return tests for both you and your mother. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 However, only one of you can treat him as a qualifying child to claim the EIC (and the other tax benefits listed earlier for which that person qualifies). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 He is not a qualifying child of anyone else, including his father. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you do not claim Jimmy as a qualifying child for the EIC or any of the other tax benefits listed earlier, your mother can treat him as a qualifying child to claim the EIC (and any of the other tax benefits listed earlier for which she qualifies). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 2. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The facts are the same as in Example 1 except your AGI is $25,000. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Because your mother's AGI is not higher than yours, she cannot claim Jimmy as a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Only you can claim him. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 3. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that you and your mother both claim Jimmy as a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 In this case, you as the child's parent will be the only one allowed to claim Jimmy as a qualifying child for the EIC and the other tax benefits listed earlier for which you qualify. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The IRS will disallow your mother's claim to the EIC and any of the other tax benefits listed earlier unless she has another qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 4. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that you also have two other young children who are qualifying children of both you and your mother. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Only one of you can claim each child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 However, if your mother's AGI is higher than yours, you can allow your mother to claim one or more of the children. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 For example, if you claim one child, your mother can claim the other two. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 5. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that you are only 18 years old. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 This means you are a qualifying child of your mother. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Because of Rule 10 , discussed next, you cannot claim the EIC and cannot claim Jimmy as a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Only your mother may be able to treat Jimmy as a qualifying child to claim the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If your mother meets all the other requirements for claiming the EIC and you do not claim Jimmy as a qualifying child for any of the other tax benefits listed earlier, your mother can claim both you and Jimmy as qualifying children for the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 6. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that your mother earned $50,000 from her job. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Because your mother's earned income is too high for her to claim the EIC, only you can claim the EIC using your son. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 7. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that you earned $50,000 from your job and your AGI is $50,500. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your earned income is too high for you to claim the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 But your mother cannot claim the EIC either, because her AGI is not higher than yours. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 8. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that you and Jimmy's father are married to each other, live with Jimmy and your mother, and have an AGI of $30,000 on a joint return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you and your husband do not claim Jimmy as a qualifying child for the EIC or any of the other tax benefits listed earlier, your mother can claim him instead. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Even though the AGI on your joint return, $30,000, is more than your mother's AGI of $20,000, for this purpose half of the joint AGI can be treated as yours and half as your husband's. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 In other words, each parent's AGI can be treated as $15,000. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 9. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You, your husband, and your 10-year-old son Joey lived together until August 1, 2013, when your husband moved out of the household. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 In August and September, Joey lived with you. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 For the rest of the year, Joey lived with your husband, who is Joey's father. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Joey is a qualifying child of both you and your husband because he lived with each of you for more than half the year and because he met the relationship, age, and joint return tests for both of you. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 At the end of the year, you and your husband still were not divorced, legally separated, or separated under a written separation agreement, so the special rule for divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart) does not apply. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You and your husband will file separate returns. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your husband agrees to let you treat Joey as a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 This means, if your husband does not claim Joey as a qualifying child for any of the tax benefits listed earlier, you can claim him as a qualifying child for any tax benefit listed earlier for which you qualify. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 However, your filing status is married filing separately, so you cannot claim the EIC or the credit for child and dependent care expenses. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 See Rule 3 . Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 10. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The facts are the same as in Example 9 except that you and your husband both claim Joey as a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 In this case, only your husband will be allowed to treat Joey as a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 This is because, during 2013, the boy lived with him longer than with you. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You cannot claim the EIC (either with or without a qualifying child). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 However, your husband's filing status is married filing separately, so he cannot claim the EIC or the credit for child and dependent care expenses. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 See Rule 3 . Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 11. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You, your 5-year-old son and your son's father lived together all year. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You and your son's father are not married. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your son is a qualifying child of both you and his father because he meets the relationship, age, residency, and joint return tests for both you and his father. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your earned income and AGI are $12,000, and your son's father's earned income and AGI are $14,000. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Neither of you had any other income. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your son's father agrees to let you treat the child as a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 This means, if your son's father does not claim your son as a qualifying child for the EIC or any of the other tax benefits listed earlier, you can claim him as a qualifying child for the EIC and any of the other tax benefits listed earlier for which you qualify. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 12. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The facts are the same as in Example 11 except that you and your son's father both claim your son as a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 In this case, only your son's father will be allowed to treat your son as a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 This is because his AGI, $14,000, is more than your AGI, $12,000. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You cannot claim the EIC (either with or without a qualifying child). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 13. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You and your 7-year-old niece, your sister's child, lived with your mother all year. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You are 25 years old, and your AGI is $9,300. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your only income was from a part-time job. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your mother's AGI is $15,000. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Her only income was from her job. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your niece's parents file jointly, have an AGI of less than $9,000, and do not live with you or their child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your niece is a qualifying child of both you and your mother because she meets the relationship, age, residency, and joint return tests for both you and your mother. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 However, only your mother can treat her as a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 This is because your mother's AGI, $15,000, is more than your AGI, $9,300. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Special rule for divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart). Walmart free tax preparation 2013   A child will be treated as the qualifying child of his or her noncustodial parent (for purposes of claiming an exemption and the child tax credit, but not for the EIC) if all of the following statements are true. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The parents: Are divorced or legally separated under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance, Are separated under a written separation agreement, or Lived apart at all times during the last 6 months of 2013, whether or not they are or were married. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The child received over half of his or her support for the year from the parents. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The child is in the custody of one or both parents for more than half of 2013. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Either of the following statements is true. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The custodial parent signs Form 8332 or a substantially similar statement that he or she will not claim the child as a dependent for the year, and the noncustodial parent attaches the form or statement to his or her return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If the divorce decree or separation agreement went into effect after 1984 and before 2009, the noncustodial parent may be able to attach certain pages from the decree or agreement instead of Form 8332. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 A pre-1985 decree of divorce or separate maintenance or written separation agreement that applies to 2013 provides that the noncustodial parent can claim the child as a dependent, and the noncustodial parent provides at least $600 for support of the child during 2013. Walmart free tax preparation 2013  For details, see chapter 3. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Also see Applying Rule 9 to divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart) , next. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Applying Rule 9 to divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart). Walmart free tax preparation 2013   If a child is treated as the qualifying child of the noncustodial parent under the special rule just described for children of divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart), only the noncustodial parent can claim an exemption and the child tax credit for the child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 However, the custodial parent, if eligible, or another eligible taxpayer can claim the child as a qualifying child for the EIC and other tax benefits listed earlier in this chapter. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If the child is the qualifying child of more than one person for these benefits, then the tiebreaker rules determine which person can treat the child as a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 1. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You and your 5-year-old son lived all year with your mother, who paid the entire cost of keeping up the home. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your AGI is $10,000. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your mother’s AGI is $25,000. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your son's father did not live with you or your son. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Under the special rule for children of divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart), your son is treated as the qualifying child of his father, who can claim an exemption and the child tax credit for the child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 However, your son's father cannot claim your son as a qualifying child for head of household filing status, the credit for child and dependent care expenses, the exclusion for dependent care benefits, or the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You and your mother did not have any child care expenses or dependent care benefits. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you do not claim your son as a qualifying child, your mother can claim him as a qualifying child for the EIC and head of household filing status, if she qualifies for these tax benefits. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 2. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that your AGI is $25,000 and your mother's AGI is $21,000. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your mother cannot claim your son as a qualifying child for any purpose because her AGI is not higher than yours. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 3. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that you and your mother both claim your son as a qualifying child for the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your mother also claims him as a qualifying child for head of household filing status. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You as the child's parent will be the only one allowed to claim your son as a qualifying child for the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The IRS will disallow your mother's claim to the EIC and head of household filing status unless she has another qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Rule 10. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You Cannot Be a Qualifying Child of Another Taxpayer You are a qualifying child of another taxpayer (your parent, guardian, foster parent, etc. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 ) if all of the following statements are true. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You are that person's son, daughter, stepchild, foster child, or a descendant of any of them. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Or, you are that person's brother, sister, half brother, half sister, stepbrother, or stepsister (or a descendant of any of them). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You were: Under age 19 at the end of the year and younger than that person (or that person's spouse, if the person files jointly), Under age 24 at the end of the year, a student, and younger than that person (or that person's spouse, if the person files jointly), or Permanently and totally disabled, regardless of age. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You lived with that person in the United States for more than half of the year. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You are not filing a joint return for the year (or are filing a joint return only to claim a refund of withheld income tax or estimated tax paid). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 For more details about the tests to be a qualifying child, see Rule 8 . Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you are a qualifying child of another taxpayer, you cannot claim the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 This is true even if the person for whom you are a qualifying child does not claim the EIC or meet all of the rules to claim the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Put “No” beside line 64a (Form 1040) or line 38a (Form 1040A). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You and your daughter lived with your mother all year. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You are 22 years old, unmarried, and attended a trade school full time. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You had a part-time job and earned $5,700. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You had no other income. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Because you meet the relationship, age, residency, and joint return tests, you are a qualifying child of your mother. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 She can claim the EIC if she meets all the other requirements. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Because you are your mother's qualifying child, you cannot claim the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 This is so even if your mother cannot or does not claim the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Child of person not required to file a return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   You are not the qualifying child of another taxpayer (and so may qualify to claim the EIC) if the person for whom you meet the relationship, age, residency, and joint return tests is not required to file an income tax return and either: Does not file an income tax return, or Files a return only to get a refund of income tax withheld or estimated tax paid. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The facts are the same as in the last example except your mother had no gross income, is not required to file a 2013 tax return, and does not file a 2013 tax return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 As a result, you are not your mother's qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You can claim the EIC if you meet all the other requirements to do so. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   See Rule 10 in Publication 596 for additional examples. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Part C. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Rules If You Do Not Have a Qualifying Child Read this part if you: Do not have a qualifying child, and Have met all the rules in Part A . Walmart free tax preparation 2013  Part C discusses Rules 11 through 14. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You must meet all four of these rules, in addition to the rules in Parts A and D , to qualify for the earned income credit without a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you have a qualifying child, the rules in this part do not apply to you. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You can claim the credit only if you meet all the rules in Parts A, B, and D. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 See Rule 8 to find out if you have a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Rule 11. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You Must Be at Least Age 25 but Under Age 65 You must be at least age 25 but under age 65 at the end of 2013. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you are married filing a joint return, either you or your spouse must be at least age 25 but under age 65 at the end of 2013. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 It does not matter which spouse meets the age test, as long as one of the spouses does. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You meet the age test if you were born after December 31, 1948, and before January 2, 1989. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you are married filing a joint return, you meet the age test if either you or your spouse was born after December 31, 1948, and before January 2, 1989. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If neither you nor your spouse meets the age test, you cannot claim the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Put “No” next to line 64a (Form 1040), line 38a (Form 1040A), or line 8a (Form 1040EZ). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Death of spouse. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   If you are filing a joint return with your spouse who died in 2013, you meet the age test if your spouse was at least age 25 but under age 65 at the time of death. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 1. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You are age 28 and unmarried. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You meet the age test. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 2—spouse meets age test. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You are married and filing a joint return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You are age 23 and your spouse is age 27. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You meet the age test because your spouse is at least age 25 but under age 65. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 3—spouse dies in 2013. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You are married and filing a joint return with your spouse who died in August 2013. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You are age 67. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your spouse would have become age 65 in November 2013. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Because your spouse was under age 65 when she died, you meet the age test. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Rule 12. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You Cannot Be the Dependent of Another Person If you are not filing a joint return, you meet this rule if: You checked box 6a on Form 1040 or 1040A, or You did not check the “You” box on line 5 of Form 1040EZ, and you entered $10,000 on that line. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you are filing a joint return, you meet this rule if: You checked both box 6a and box 6b on Form 1040 or 1040A, or You and your spouse did not check either the “You” box or the “Spouse” box on line 5 of Form 1040EZ, and you entered $20,000 on that line. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you are not sure whether someone else can claim you (or your spouse, if filing a joint return) as a dependent, read the rules for claiming a dependent in chapter 3. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If someone else can claim you (or your spouse, if filing a joint return) as a dependent on his or her return, but does not, you still cannot claim the credit. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 1. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 In 2013, you were age 25, single, and living at home with your parents. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You worked and were not a student. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You earned $7,500. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your parents cannot claim you as a dependent. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 When you file your return, you claim an exemption for yourself by not checking the “You” box on line 5 of your Form 1040EZ and by entering $10,000 on that line. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You meet this rule. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You can claim the EIC if you meet all the other requirements. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 2. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The facts are the same as in Example 1 , except that you earned $2,000. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your parents can claim you as a dependent but decide not to. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You do not meet this rule. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You cannot claim the credit because your parents could have claimed you as a dependent. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Joint returns. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   You generally cannot be claimed as a dependent by another person if you are married and file a joint return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   However, another person may be able to claim you as a dependent if you and your spouse file a joint return only to get a refund of income tax withheld or estimated tax paid. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 But neither you nor your spouse can be claimed as a dependent by another person if you claim the EIC on your joint return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 1. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You are 26 years old. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You and your wife live with your parents and had $800 of wages from part-time jobs and no other income. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Neither you nor your wife is required to file a tax return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You do not have a child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Taxes were taken out of your pay, so you file a joint return only to get a refund of the withheld taxes. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your parents are not disqualified from claiming an exemption for you just because you filed a joint return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 They can claim exemptions for you and your wife if all the other tests to do so are met. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example 2. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 The facts are the same as in Example 1 except no taxes were taken out of your pay. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Also, you and your wife are not required to file a tax return, but you file a joint return to claim an EIC of $63 and get a refund of that amount. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Because claiming the EIC is your reason for filing the return, you are not filing it only to get a refund of income tax withheld or estimated tax paid. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your parents cannot claim an exemption for either you or your wife. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Rule 13. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You Cannot Be a Qualifying Child of Another Taxpayer You are a qualifying child of another taxpayer (your parent, guardian, foster parent, etc. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 ) if all of the following statements are true. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You are that person's son, daughter, stepchild, foster child, or a descendant of any of them. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Or, you are that person's brother, sister, half brother, half sister, stepbrother, or stepsister (or a descendant of any of them). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You were: Under age 19 at the end of the year and younger than that person (or that person's spouse, if the person files jointly), Under age 24 at the end of the year, a student (as defined in Rule 8 ), and younger than that person (or that person's spouse, if the person files jointly), or Permanently and totally disabled, regardless of age. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You lived with that person in the United States for more than half of the year. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You are not filing a joint return for the year (or are filing a joint return only to claim a refund of withheld income tax or estimated tax paid). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 For more details about the tests to be a qualifying child, see Rule 8 . Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you are a qualifying child of another taxpayer, you cannot claim the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 This is true even if the person for whom you are a qualifying child does not claim the EIC or meet all of the rules to claim the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Put “No” next to line 64a (Form 1040), line 38a (Form 1040A), or line 8a (Form 1040EZ). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You lived with your mother all year. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You are age 26, unmarried, and permanently and totally disabled. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your only income was from a community center where you went three days a week to answer telephones. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You earned $5,000 for the year and provided more than half of your own support. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Because you meet the relationship, age, residency, and joint return tests, you are a qualifying child of your mother for the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 She can claim the EIC if she meets all the other requirements. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Because you are a qualifying child of your mother, you cannot claim the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 This is so even if your mother cannot or does not claim the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Joint returns. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   You generally cannot be a qualifying child of another taxpayer if you are married and file a joint return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   However, you may be a qualifying child of another taxpayer if you and your spouse file a joint return for the year only to get a refund of income tax withheld or estimated tax paid. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 But neither you nor your spouse can be a qualifying child of another taxpayer if you claim the EIC on your joint return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Child of person not required to file a return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   You are not the qualifying child of another taxpayer (and so may qualify to claim the EIC) if the person for whom you meet the relationship, age, residency, and joint return tests is not required to file an income tax return and either: Does not file an income tax return, or Files a return only to get a refund of income tax withheld or estimated tax paid. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Example. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You lived all year with your father. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You are 27 years old, unmarried, permanently and totally disabled, and earned $13,000. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You have no other income, no children, and provided more than half of your own support. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your father had no gross income, is not required to file a 2013 tax return, and does not file a 2013 tax return. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 As a result, you are not your father's qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You can claim the EIC if you meet all the other requirements to do so. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   See Rule 13 in Publication 596 for additional examples. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Rule 14. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You Must Have Lived in the United States More Than Half of the Year Your home (and your spouse's, if filing a joint return) must have been in the United States for more than half the year. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If it was not, put “No” next to line 64a (Form 1040), line 38a (Form 1040A), or line 8a (Form 1040EZ). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 United States. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   This means the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 It does not include Puerto Rico or U. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 S. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 possessions such as Guam. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Homeless shelter. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   Your home can be any location where you regularly live. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You do not need a traditional home. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you lived in one or more homeless shelters in the United States for more than half the year, you meet this rule. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Military personnel stationed outside the United States. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   U. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 S. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 military personnel stationed outside the United States on extended active duty (defined in Rule 8 ) are considered to live in the United States during that duty period for purposes of the EIC. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Part D. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Figuring and Claiming the EIC Read this part if you have met all the rules in Parts A and B, or all the rules in Parts A and C. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Part D discusses Rule 15 . Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You must meet this rule, in addition to the rules in Parts A and B , or Parts A and C , to qualify for the earned income credit. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 This part of the chapter also explains how to figure the amount of your credit. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You have two choices. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Have the IRS figure the EIC for you. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you want to do this, see IRS Will Figure the EIC for You . Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Figure the EIC yourself. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you want to do this, see How To Figure the EIC Yourself . Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Rule 15. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Your Earned Income Must Be Less Than: $46,227 ($51,567 for married filing jointly) if you have three or more qualifying children, $43,038 ($48,378 for married filing jointly) if you have two qualifying children, $37,870 ($43,210 for married filing jointly) if you have one qualifying child, or $14,340 ($19,680 for married filing jointly) if you do not have a qualifying child. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Earned income generally means wages, salaries, tips, other taxable employee pay, and net earnings from self-employment. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Employee pay is earned income only if it is taxable. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Nontaxable employee pay, such as certain dependent care benefits and adoption benefits, is not earned income. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 But there is an exception for nontaxable combat pay, which you can choose to include in earned income. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Earned income is explained in detail in Rule 7 . Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Figuring earned income. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   If you are self-employed, a statutory employee, or a member of the clergy or a church employee who files Schedule SE (Form 1040), you will figure your earned income when you fill out Part 4 of EIC Worksheet B in the Form 1040 instructions. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   Otherwise, figure your earned income by using the worksheet in Step 5 of the Form 1040 instructions for lines 64a and 64b or the Form 1040A instructions for lines 38a and 38b, or the worksheet in Step 2 of the Form 1040EZ instructions for lines 8a and 8b. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   When using one of those worksheets to figure your earned income, you will start with the amount on line 7 (Form 1040 or Form 1040A) or line 1 (Form 1040EZ). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 You will then reduce that amount by any amount included on that line and described in the following list: Scholarship or fellowship grants not reported on a Form W-2, Inmate's income, and Pension or annuity from deferred compensation plans. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Scholarship or fellowship grants not reported on a Form W-2. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   A scholarship or fellowship grant that was not reported to you on a Form W-2 is not considered earned income for the earned income credit. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Inmate's income. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   Amounts received for work performed while an inmate in a penal institution are not earned income for the earned income credit. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 This includes amounts received for work performed while in a work release program or while in a halfway house. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you received any amount for work done while an inmate in a penal institution and that amount is included in the total on line 7 (Form 1040 or Form 1040A) or line 1 (Form 1040EZ), put “PRI” and the amount on the dotted line next to line 7 (Form 1040), in the space to the left of the entry space for line 7 (Form 1040A), or in the space to the left of line 1 (Form 1040EZ). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Pension or annuity from deferred compensation plans. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   A pension or annuity from a nonqualified deferred compensation plan or a nongovernmental section 457 plan is not considered earned income for the earned income credit. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you received such an amount and it was included in the total on line 7 (Form 1040 or Form 1040A) or line 1 (Form 1040EZ), put “DFC” and the amount on the dotted line next to line 7 (Form 1040), in the space to the left of the entry space for line 7 (Form 1040A), or in the space to the left of line 1 (Form 1040EZ). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 This amount may be reported in box 11 of your Form W-2. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 If you received such an amount but box 11 is blank, contact your employer for the amount received as a pension or annuity. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Clergy. Walmart free tax preparation 2013   If you are a member of the clergy who files Schedule SE and the amount on line 2 of that schedule includes an amount that was also reported on line 7 (Form 1040), subtract that amount from the amount on line 7 (Form 1040) and enter the result in the first space of the worksheet in Step 5 of the Form 1040 instructions for lines 64a and 64b. Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Put “Clergy” on the dotted line next to line 64a (Form 1040). Walmart free tax preparation 2013 Church employees.
