Can i amend my 2013 tax return Check your state law if you are separated but do not meet the conditions discussed in Spouses living apart all year, later. Can i amend my 2013 tax return In some states, the income you earn after you are separated and before a divorce decree is issued continues to be community income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return In other states, it is separate income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Income The following is a discussion of the general effect of community property laws on the federal income tax treatment of certain items of income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Wages, earnings, and profits. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    A spouse's (or your registered domestic partner's) wages, earnings, and net profits from a sole proprietorship are community income and must be evenly split. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Dividends, interest, and rents. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    Dividends, interest, and rents from community property are community income and must be evenly split.

Can i amend my 2013 tax return Example. Can i amend my 2013 tax return If you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) buy a bond that is considered community property under your state laws, half the bond interest belongs to you and half belongs to your spouse.

Can i amend my 2013 tax return Attach your Form 8958 to your Form 1040. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Alimony received. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    Alimony or separate maintenance payments made prior to divorce are taxable to the payee spouse only to the extent they exceed 50% (his or her share) of the reportable community income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return This is so because the payee spouse is already required to report half of the community income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return See also Alimony paid , later. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Gains and losses. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    Gains and losses are classified as separate or community depending on how the property is held. Can i amend my 2013 tax return For example, a loss on separate property, such as stock held separately, is a separate loss. Can i amend my 2013 tax return On the other hand, a loss on community property, such as a casualty loss to your home held as community property, is a community loss. Can i amend my 2013 tax return See Publication 544, Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets, for information on gains and losses. Can i amend my 2013 tax return See Publication 547, Casualties, Disasters, and Thefts, for information on losses due to a casualty or theft. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Withdrawals from individual retirement arrangements (IRAs) and Coverdell Education Savings Accounts (ESAs). Can i amend my 2013 tax return    There are several kinds of individual retirement arrangements (IRAs). Can i amend my 2013 tax return They are traditional IRAs (including SEP-IRAs), SIMPLE IRAs, and Roth IRAs. Can i amend my 2013 tax return IRAs and ESAs by law are deemed to be separate property. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Therefore, taxable IRA and ESA distributions are separate property, even if the funds in the account would otherwise be community property. Can i amend my 2013 tax return These distributions are wholly taxable to the spouse (or registered domestic partner) whose name is on the account. Can i amend my 2013 tax return That spouse (or registered domestic partner) is also liable for any penalties and additional taxes on the distributions. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Pensions. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    Generally, distributions from pensions will be characterized as community or separate income depending on the respective periods of participation in the pension while married (or during the registered domestic partnership) and domiciled in a community property state or in a noncommunity property state during the total period of participation in the pension. Can i amend my 2013 tax return See the example under Civil service retirement , later. Can i amend my 2013 tax return These rules may vary between states. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Check your state law. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Lump-sum distributions. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    If you were born before January 2, 1936, and receive a lump-sum distribution from a qualified retirement plan, you may be able to choose an optional method of figuring the tax on the distribution. Can i amend my 2013 tax return For the 10-year tax option, you must disregard community property laws. Can i amend my 2013 tax return For more information, see Publication 575, Pension and Annuity Income, and Form 4972, Tax on Lump-Sum Distributions. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Civil service retirement. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    For income tax purposes, community property laws apply to annuities payable under the Civil Service Retirement Act (CSRS) or Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS). Can i amend my 2013 tax return   Whether a civil service annuity is separate or community income depends on your marital status (or your status as a registered domestic partner) and domicile of the employee when the services were performed for which the annuity is paid. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Even if you now live in a noncommunity property state and you receive a civil service annuity, it may be community income if it is based on services you performed while married (or during the registered domestic partnership) and domiciled in a community property state. Can i amend my 2013 tax return   If a civil service annuity is a mixture of community income and separate income, it must be divided between the two kinds of income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return The division is based on the employee's domicile and marital status (or registered domestic partnership) in community and noncommunity property states during his or her periods of service. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Example. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Henry Wright retired this year after 30 years of civil service. Can i amend my 2013 tax return He and his wife were domiciled in a community property state during the past 15 years. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Since half the service was performed while the Wrights were married and domiciled in a community property state, half the civil service retirement pay is considered to be community income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return If Mr. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Wright receives $1,000 a month in retirement pay, $500 is considered community income—half ($250) is his income and half ($250) is his wife's. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Military retirement pay. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    State community property laws apply to military retirement pay. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Generally, the pay is either separate or community income based on the marital status and domicile of the couple while the member of the Armed Forces was in active military service. Can i amend my 2013 tax return For example, military retirement pay for services performed during marriage and domicile in a community property state is community income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return   Active military pay earned while married and domiciled in a community property state is also community income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return This income is considered to be received half by the member of the Armed Forces and half by the spouse. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Partnership income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    If an interest is held in a partnership, and income from the partnership is attributable to the efforts of either spouse (or registered domestic partner), the partnership income is community property. Can i amend my 2013 tax return If it is merely a passive investment in a separate property partnership, the partnership income will be characterized in accordance with the discussion under Income from separate property , later. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Tax-exempt income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    For spouses, community income exempt from federal tax generally keeps its exempt status for both spouses. Can i amend my 2013 tax return For example, under certain circumstances, income earned outside the United States is tax exempt. Can i amend my 2013 tax return If you earned income and met the conditions that made it exempt, the income is also exempt for your spouse even though he or she may not have met the conditions. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Registered domestic partners should consult the particular exclusion provision to see if the exempt status applies to both. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Income from separate property. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    In some states, income from separate property is separate income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return These states include Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Washington. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Other states characterize income from separate property as community income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return These states include Idaho, Louisiana, Texas, and Wisconsin. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Exemptions When you file separate returns, you must claim your own exemption amount for that year. Can i amend my 2013 tax return (See your tax return instructions. Can i amend my 2013 tax return ) You cannot divide the amount allowed as an exemption for a dependent between you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner). Can i amend my 2013 tax return When community funds provide support for more than one person, each of whom otherwise qualifies as a dependent, you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) may divide the number of dependency exemptions as explained in the following example. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Example. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Ron and Diane White have three dependent children and live in Nevada. Can i amend my 2013 tax return If Ron and Diane file separately, only Ron can claim his own exemption, and only Diane can claim her own exemption. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Ron and Diane can agree that one of them will claim the exemption for one, two, or all of their children and the other will claim any remaining exemptions. Can i amend my 2013 tax return They cannot each claim half of the total exemption amount for their three children. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Deductions If you file separate returns, your deductions generally depend on whether the expenses involve community or separate income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Business and investment expenses. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    If you file separate returns, expenses incurred to earn or produce community business or investment income are generally divided equally between you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner). Can i amend my 2013 tax return Each of you is entitled to deduct one-half of the expenses on your separate returns. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Expenses incurred by a spouse (or registered domestic partner) to produce separate business or investment income is deductible by the spouse (or the registered domestic partner) who earns the corresponding separate business or investment income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    Other limits may also apply to business and investment expenses. Can i amend my 2013 tax return For more information, see Publication 535, Business Expenses, and Publication 550, Investment Income and Expenses. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Alimony paid. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    Payments that may otherwise qualify as alimony are not deductible by the payer if they are the recipient spouse's part of community income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return They are deductible as alimony only to the extent they are more than that spouse's part of community income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Example. Can i amend my 2013 tax return You live in a community property state. Can i amend my 2013 tax return You are separated but the special rules explained later under Spouses living apart all year do not apply. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Under a written agreement, you pay your spouse $12,000 of your $20,000 total yearly community income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Your spouse receives no other community income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Under your state law, earnings of a spouse living separately and apart from the other spouse continue as community property. Can i amend my 2013 tax return On your separate returns, each of you must report $10,000 of the total community income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return In addition, your spouse must report $2,000 as alimony received. Can i amend my 2013 tax return You can deduct $2,000 as alimony paid. Can i amend my 2013 tax return IRA deduction. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    Deductions for IRA contributions cannot be split between spouses (or registered domestic partners). Can i amend my 2013 tax return The deduction for each spouse (or each registered domestic partner) is figured separately and without regard to community property laws. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Personal expenses. Can i amend my 2013 tax return   Expenses that are paid out of separate funds, such as medical expenses, are deductible by the spouse who pays them. Can i amend my 2013 tax return If these expenses are paid from community funds, divide the deduction equally between you and your spouse. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Credits, Taxes, and Payments The following is a discussion of the general effect of community property laws on the treatment of certain credits, taxes, and payments on your separate return. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Child tax credit. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    You may be entitled to a child tax credit for each of your qualifying children. Can i amend my 2013 tax return You must provide the name and identification number (usually the social security number) of each qualifying child on your return. Can i amend my 2013 tax return See your tax return instructions for the maximum amount of the credit you can claim for each qualifying child. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Limit on credit. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    The credit is limited if your modified adjusted gross income (modified AGI) is above a certain amount. Can i amend my 2013 tax return The amount at which the limitation (phaseout) begins depends on your filing status. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Generally, your credit is limited to your tax liability unless you have three or more qualifying children. Can i amend my 2013 tax return See your tax return instructions for more information. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Self-employment tax. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    For the effect of community property laws on the income tax treatment of income from a sole proprietorship and partnerships, see Wages, earnings, and profits and Partnership income , earlier. Can i amend my 2013 tax return The following rules only apply to persons married for federal tax purposes. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Registered domestic partners report community income for self-employment tax purposes the same way they do for income tax purposes. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Sole proprietorship. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    With regard to net income from a trade or business (other than a partnership) that is community income, self-employment tax is imposed on the spouse carrying on the trade or business. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Partnerships. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    All of the distributive share of a married partner's income or loss from a partnership trade or business is attributable to the partner for computing any self-employment tax, even if a portion of the partner's distributive share of income or loss is community income or loss that is otherwise attributable to the partner's spouse for income tax purposes. Can i amend my 2013 tax return If both spouses are partners, any self-employment tax is allocated based on their distributive shares. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Federal income tax withheld. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    Report the credit for federal income tax withheld on community wages in the same manner as your wages. Can i amend my 2013 tax return If you and your spouse file separate returns on which each of you reports half the community wages, each of you is entitled to credit for half the income tax withheld on those wages. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Likewise, each registered domestic partner is entitled to credit for half the income tax withheld on those wages. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Estimated tax payments. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    In determining whether you must pay estimated tax, apply the estimated tax rules to your estimated income. Can i amend my 2013 tax return These rules are explained in Publication 505. Can i amend my 2013 tax return   If you think you may owe estimated tax and want to pay the tax separately (registered domestic partners must pay the tax separately), determine whether you must pay it by taking into account: Half the community income and deductions, All of your separate income and deductions, and Your own exemption and any exemptions for dependents that you may claim. Can i amend my 2013 tax return   Whether you and your spouse pay estimated tax jointly or separately will not affect your choice of filing joint or separate income tax returns. Can i amend my 2013 tax return   If you and your spouse paid estimated tax jointly but file separate income tax returns, either of you can claim all of the estimated tax paid, or you may divide it between you in any way that you agree upon. Can i amend my 2013 tax return   If you cannot agree on how to divide it, the estimated tax you can claim equals the total estimated tax paid times the tax shown on your separate return, divided by the total of the tax shown on your return and your spouse's return. Can i amend my 2013 tax return   If you paid your estimated taxes separately, you get credit for only the estimated taxes you paid. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Earned income credit. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    You may be entitled to an earned income credit (EIC). Can i amend my 2013 tax return You cannot claim this credit if your filing status is married filing separately. Can i amend my 2013 tax return   If you are married, but qualify to file as head of household under rules for married taxpayers living apart (see Publication 501, Exemptions, Standard Deduction, and Filing Information), 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 community property laws. Can i amend my 2013 tax return That amount is not earned income for the EIC, even though you must include it in your gross income on your income tax return. Can i amend my 2013 tax return 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. Can i amend my 2013 tax return The same rule applies to registered domestic partners. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    This rule does not apply when determining your adjusted gross income (AGI) for the EIC. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Your AGI includes that part of both your and your spouse's (or your registered domestic partner's) wages that you are required to include in gross income shown on your tax return. Can i amend my 2013 tax return   For more information about the EIC, see Publication 596, Earned Income Credit (EIC). Can i amend my 2013 tax return Overpayments. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    The amount of an overpayment on a joint return is allocated under the community property laws of the state in which you are domiciled. Can i amend my 2013 tax return If, under the laws of your state, community property is subject to premarital or other separate debts of either spouse, the full joint overpayment may be used to offset the obligation. Can i amend my 2013 tax return If, under the laws of your state, community property is not subject to premarital or other separate debts of either spouse, only the portion of the joint overpayment allocated to the spouse liable for the obligation can be used to offset that liability. Can i amend my 2013 tax return The portion allocated to the other spouse can be refunded. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Community Property Laws Disregarded The following discussions are situations where special rules apply to community property and community income for spouses. Can i amend my 2013 tax return These rules do not apply to registered domestic partners. Can i amend my 2013 tax return Certain community income not treated as community income by one spouse. Can i amend my 2013 tax return    Community property laws may not apply to an item of community income that you received but did not treat as community income.
