Efile state taxes The following departing aliens can get their sailing or departure permits by filing Form 2063. Efile state taxes Aliens, whether resident or nonresident, who have had no taxable income for the tax year up to and including the date of departure and for the preceding year, if the period for filing the income tax return for that year has not expired. Efile state taxes Resident aliens who have received taxable income during the tax year or preceding year and whose departure will not hinder the collection of any tax. Efile state taxes However, if the IRS has information indicating that the aliens are leaving to avoid paying their income tax, they must file a Form 1040-C. Efile state taxes Aliens in either of these categories who have not filed an income tax return or paid income tax for any tax year must file the return and pay the income tax before they can be issued a sailing or departure permit on Form 2063. Efile state taxes The sailing or departure permit detached from Form 2063 can be used for all departures during the current year. Efile state taxes However, the IRS may cancel the sailing or departure permit for any later departure if it believes the collection of income tax is jeopardized by that later departure.

Efile state taxes However, the IRS may permit you to furnish a bond guaranteeing payment instead of paying the taxes for certain years. Efile state taxes See Bond To Ensure Payment , discussed later. Efile state taxes The sailing or departure permit issued under the conditions in this paragraph is only for the specific departure for which it is issued. Efile state taxes Returning to the United States. Efile state taxes   If you furnish the IRS with information showing, to the satisfaction of the IRS, that you intend to return to the United States and that your departure does not jeopardize the collection of income tax, you can get a sailing or departure permit by filing Form 1040-C without having to pay the tax shown on it. Efile state taxes You must, however, file all income tax returns that have not yet been filed as required, and pay all income tax that is due on these returns. Efile state taxes   Your Form 1040-C must include all income received and reasonably expected to be received during the entire year of departure. Efile state taxes The sailing or departure permit issued with this Form 1040-C can be used for all departures during the current year. Efile state taxes However, the Service may cancel the sailing or departure permit for any later departure if the payment of income tax appears to be in jeopardy.

Efile state taxes You must also pay any taxes due for past years. Efile state taxes If the tax computation on Form 1040-C results in an overpayment, there is no tax to pay at the time you file that return. Efile state taxes However, the IRS cannot provide a refund at the time of departure. Efile state taxes If you are due a refund, you must file either Form 1040NR or Form 1040NR-EZ at the end of the tax year. Efile state taxes Bond To Ensure Payment Usually, you must pay the tax shown as due on Form 1040-C when you file it. Efile state taxes However, if you pay all taxes due that you owe for prior years, you can furnish a bond guaranteeing payment instead of paying the income taxes shown as due on the Form 1040-C or the tax return for the preceding year if the period for filing that return has not expired. Efile state taxes The bond must equal the tax due plus interest to the date of payment as figured by the IRS.
