The E File Federal Taxes 2012

E file federal taxes 2012 7. E file federal taxes 2012   Ship Passenger Tax Table of Contents A tax of $3 per passenger is imposed on certain ship voyages, as explained later under Taxable situations. E file federal taxes 2012 The tax is imposed only once for each passenger, either at the time of first embarkation or disembarkation in the United States. E file federal taxes 2012 The person providing the voyage (the operator of the vessel) is liable for the tax. E file federal taxes 2012 Voyage. E file federal taxes 2012   A voyage is the vessel's journey that includes the outward and homeward trips or passages. E file federal taxes 2012 The voyage starts when the vessel begins to load passengers and continues until the vessel has completed at least one outward and one homeward passage. E file federal taxes 2012 The tax may be imposed even if a passenger does not make both an outward and a homeward passage as long as the voyage begins or ends in the United States. E file federal taxes 2012 Passenger. E file federal taxes 2012   A passenger is an individual carried on the vessel other than the Master or a crew member or other individual engaged in the business of the vessel or its owners. E file federal taxes 2012 Example 1. E file federal taxes 2012 John Smith works as a guest lecturer. E file federal taxes 2012 The cruise line hired him for the benefit of the passengers. E file federal taxes 2012 Therefore, he is engaged in the business of the vessel and is not a passenger. E file federal taxes 2012 Example 2. E file federal taxes 2012 Marian Green is a travel agent. E file federal taxes 2012 She is taking the cruise as a promotional trip to determine if she wants to offer it to her clients. E file federal taxes 2012 She is a passenger. E file federal taxes 2012 Taxable situations. E file federal taxes 2012   There are two taxable situations. E file federal taxes 2012 The first situation involves voyages on commercial passenger vessels extending over one or more nights. E file federal taxes 2012 A voyage extends over one or more nights if it extends for more than 24 hours. E file federal taxes 2012 A passenger vessel is any vessel with stateroom or berth accommodations for more than 16 passengers. E file federal taxes 2012   The second situation involves voyages on a commercial vessel transporting passengers engaged in gambling on the vessel beyond the territorial waters of the United States. E file federal taxes 2012 Territorial waters of the United States are those waters within the international boundary line between the United States and any contiguous foreign country or within 3 nautical miles (3. E file federal taxes 2012 45 statute miles) from low tide on the coastline. E file federal taxes 2012 If passengers participate as players in any policy game or other lottery, or any other game of chance for money or other thing of value that the owner or operator of the vessel (or their employee, agent, or franchisee) conducts, sponsors, or operates, the voyage is subject to the ship passenger tax. E file federal taxes 2012 The tax applies regardless of the duration of the voyage. E file federal taxes 2012 A casual, friendly game of chance with other passengers that is not conducted, sponsored, or operated by the owner or operator is not gambling for determining if the voyage is subject to the ship passenger tax. E file federal taxes 2012 Exemptions. E file federal taxes 2012   The tax does not apply when a vessel is on a voyage of less than 12 hours between 2 points in the United States or if a vessel is owned or operated by a state or local government.
