Free tax com Resident Aliens Resident aliens are generally taxed in the same way as U. Free tax com S. Free tax com citizens. Free tax com This means that their worldwide income is subject to U. Free tax com S. Free tax com tax and must be reported on their U. Free tax com S. Free tax com tax return. Free tax com Income of resident aliens is subject to the graduated tax rates that apply to U. Free tax com S. Free tax com citizens. Free tax com Resident aliens use the Tax Table or Tax Computation Worksheets located in the Form 1040 instructions, which apply to U. Free tax com S. Free tax com citizens. Free tax com Nonresident Aliens A nonresident alien's income that is subject to U. Free tax com S. Free tax com income tax must be divided into two categories: Income that is effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States, and Income that is not effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States (discussed under The 30% Tax, later). Free tax com The difference between these two categories is that effectively connected income, after allowable deductions, is taxed at graduated rates. Free tax com These are the same rates that apply to U. Free tax com S. Free tax com citizens and residents. Free tax com Income that is not effectively connected is taxed at a flat 30% (or lower treaty) rate. Free tax com If you were formerly a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com citizen or resident alien, these rules may not apply. Free tax com See Expatriation Tax, later, in this chapter. Free tax com Trade or Business in the United States Generally, you must be engaged in a trade or business during the tax year to be able to treat income received in that year as effectively connected with that trade or business. Free tax com Whether you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States depends on the nature of your activities. Free tax com The discussions that follow will help you determine whether you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Free tax com Personal Services If you perform personal services in the United States at any time during the tax year, you usually are considered engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Free tax com Certain compensation paid to a nonresident alien by a foreign employer is not included in gross income. Free tax com For more information, see Services Performed for Foreign Employer in chapter 3. Free tax com Other Trade or Business Activities Other examples of being engaged in a trade or business in the United States follow. Free tax com Students and trainees. Free tax com   You are considered engaged in a trade or business in the United States if you are temporarily present in the United States as a nonimmigrant under an “F,” “J,” “M,” or “Q” visa. Free tax com A nonresident alien temporarily present in the United States under a “J” visa includes a nonresident alien individual admitted to the United States as an exchange visitor under the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961. Free tax com The taxable part of any scholarship or fellowship grant that is U. Free tax com S. Free tax com source income is treated as effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Free tax com Business operations. Free tax com   If you own and operate a business in the United States selling services, products, or merchandise, you are, with certain exceptions, engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Free tax com Partnerships. Free tax com   If you are a member of a partnership that at any time during the tax year is engaged in a trade or business in the United States, you are considered to be engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Free tax com Beneficiary of an estate or trust. Free tax com   If you are the beneficiary of an estate or trust that is engaged in a trade or business in the United States, you are treated as being engaged in the same trade or business. Free tax com Trading in stocks, securities, and commodities. Free tax com   If your only U. Free tax com S. Free tax com business activity is trading in stocks, securities, or commodities (including hedging transactions) through a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com resident broker or other agent, you are not engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Free tax com   For transactions in stocks or securities, this applies to any nonresident alien, including a dealer or broker in stocks and securities. Free tax com   For transactions in commodities, this applies to commodities that are usually traded on an organized commodity exchange and to transactions that are usually carried out at such an exchange. Free tax com   This discussion does not apply if you have a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com office or other fixed place of business at any time during the tax year through which, or by the direction of which, you carry out your transactions in stocks, securities, or commodities. Free tax com Trading for a nonresident alien's own account. Free tax com   You are not engaged in a trade or business in the United States if trading for your own account in stocks, securities, or commodities is your only U. Free tax com S. Free tax com business activity. Free tax com This applies even if the trading takes place while you are present in the United States or is done by your employee or your broker or other agent. Free tax com   This does not apply to trading for your own account if you are a dealer in stocks, securities, or commodities. Free tax com This does not necessarily mean, however, that as a dealer you are considered to be engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Free tax com Determine that based on the facts and circumstances in each case or under the rules given above in Trading in stocks, securities, and commodities . Free tax com Effectively Connected Income If you are engaged in a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com trade or business, all income, gain, or loss for the tax year that you get from sources within the United States (other than certain investment income) is treated as effectively connected income. Free tax com This applies whether or not there is any connection between the income and the trade or business being carried on in the United States during the tax year. Free tax com Two tests, described next under Investment Income, determine whether certain items of investment income (such as interest, dividends, and royalties) are treated as effectively connected with that business. Free tax com In limited circumstances, some kinds of foreign source income may be treated as effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Free tax com For a discussion of these rules, see Foreign Income , later. Free tax com Investment Income Investment income from U. Free tax com S. Free tax com sources that may or may not be treated as effectively connected with a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com trade or business generally falls into the following three categories. Free tax com Fixed or determinable income (interest, dividends, rents, royalties, premiums, annuities, etc. Free tax com ). Free tax com Gains (some of which are considered capital gains) from the sale or exchange of the following types of property. Free tax com Timber, coal, or domestic iron ore with a retained economic interest. Free tax com Patents, copyrights, and similar property on which you receive contingent payments after October 4, 1966. Free tax com Patents transferred before October 5, 1966. Free tax com Original issue discount obligations. Free tax com Capital gains (and losses). Free tax com Use the two tests, described next, to determine whether an item of U. Free tax com S. Free tax com source income falling in one of the three categories above and received during the tax year is effectively connected with your U. Free tax com S. Free tax com trade or business. Free tax com If the tests indicate that the item of income is effectively connected, you must include it with your other effectively connected income. Free tax com If the item of income is not effectively connected, include it with all other income discussed under The 30% Tax later, in this chapter. Free tax com Asset-use test. Free tax com   This test usually applies to income that is not directly produced by trade or business activities. Free tax com Under this test, if an item of income is from assets (property) used in, or held for use in, the trade or business in the United States, it is considered effectively connected. Free tax com   An asset is used in, or held for use in, the trade or business in the United States if the asset is: Held for the principal purpose of promoting the conduct of a trade or business in the United States, Acquired and held in the ordinary course of the trade or business conducted in the United States (for example, an account receivable or note receivable arising from that trade or business), or Otherwise held to meet the present needs of the trade or business in the United States and not its anticipated future needs. Free tax com Generally, stock of a corporation is not treated as an asset used in, or held for use in, a trade or business in the United States. Free tax com Business-activities test. Free tax com   This test usually applies when income, gain, or loss comes directly from the active conduct of the trade or business. Free tax com The business-activities test is most important when: Dividends or interest are received by a dealer in stocks or securities, Royalties are received in the trade or business of licensing patents or similar property, or Service fees are earned by a servicing business. Free tax com Under this test, if the conduct of the U. Free tax com S. Free tax com trade or business was a material factor in producing the income, the income is considered effectively connected. Free tax com Personal Service Income You usually are engaged in a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com trade or business when you perform personal services in the United States. Free tax com Personal service income you receive in a tax year in which you are engaged in a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com trade or business is effectively connected with a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com trade or business. Free tax com Income received in a year other than the year you performed the services is also effectively connected if it would have been effectively connected if received in the year you performed the services. Free tax com Personal service income includes wages, salaries, commissions, fees, per diem allowances, and employee allowances and bonuses. Free tax com The income may be paid to you in the form of cash, services, or property. Free tax com If you are engaged in a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com trade or business only because you perform personal services in the United States during the tax year, income and gains from assets, and gains and losses from the sale or exchange of capital assets are generally not effectively connected with your trade or business. Free tax com However, if there is a direct economic relationship between your holding of the asset and your trade or business of performing personal services, the income, gain, or loss is effectively connected. Free tax com Pensions. Free tax com   If you were a nonresident alien engaged in a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com trade or business after 1986 because you performed personal services in the United States, and you later receive a pension or retirement pay attributable to these services, such payments are effectively connected income in each year you receive them. Free tax com This is true whether or not you are engaged in a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com trade or business in the year you receive the retirement pay. Free tax com Transportation Income Transportation income (defined in chapter 2) is effectively connected if you meet both of the following conditions. Free tax com You had a fixed place of business in the United States involved in earning the income. Free tax com At least 90% of your U. Free tax com S. Free tax com source transportation income is attributable to regularly scheduled transportation. Free tax com “Fixed place of business” generally means a place, site, structure, or other similar facility through which you engage in a trade or business. Free tax com “Regularly scheduled transportation” means that a ship or aircraft follows a published schedule with repeated sailings or flights at regular intervals between the same points for voyages or flights that begin or end in the United States. Free tax com This definition applies to both scheduled and chartered air transportation. Free tax com If you do not meet the two conditions above, the income is not effectively connected and is taxed at a 4% rate. Free tax com See Transportation Tax, later, in this chapter. Free tax com Business Profits and Losses and Sales Transactions All profits or losses from U. Free tax com S. Free tax com sources that are from the operation of a business in the United States are effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Free tax com For example, profit from the sale in the United States of inventory property purchased either in this country or in a foreign country is effectively connected trade or business income. Free tax com A share of U. Free tax com S. Free tax com source profits or losses of a partnership that is engaged in a trade or business in the United States is also effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Free tax com Real Property Gain or Loss Gains and losses from the sale or exchange of U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property interests (whether or not they are capital assets) are taxed as if you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Free tax com You must treat the gain or loss as effectively connected with that trade or business. Free tax com U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property interest. Free tax com   This is any interest in real property located in the United States or the U. Free tax com S. Free tax com Virgin Islands or any interest (other than as a creditor) in a domestic corporation that is a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property holding corporation. Free tax com Real property includes the following. Free tax com Land and unsevered natural products of the land, such as growing crops and timber, and mines, wells, and other natural deposits. Free tax com Improvements on land, including buildings, other permanent structures, and their structural components. Free tax com Personal property associated with the use of real property, such as equipment used in farming, mining, forestry, or construction or property used in lodging facilities or rented office space, unless the personal property is: Disposed of more than one year before or after the disposition of the real property, or Separately sold to persons unrelated either to the seller or to the buyer of the real property. Free tax com U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property holding corporation. Free tax com   A corporation is a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property holding corporation if the fair market value of the corporation's U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property interests are at least 50% of the total fair market value of: The corporation's U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property interests, plus The corporation's interests in real property located outside the United States, plus The corporation's other assets that are used in, or held for use in, a trade or business. Free tax com   Gain or loss on the sale of the stock in any domestic corporation is taxed as if you are engaged in a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com trade or business unless you establish that the corporation is not a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property holding corporation. Free tax com   A U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property interest does not include a class of stock of a corporation that is regularly traded on an established securities market, unless you hold more than 5% of the fair market value of that class of stock. Free tax com An interest in a foreign corporation owning U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property generally is not a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property interest unless the corporation chooses to be treated as a domestic corporation. Free tax com Qualified investment entities. Free tax com   Special rules apply to qualified investment entities (QIEs). Free tax com A QIE is any real estate investment trust (REIT) or any regulated investment company (RIC) that is a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property holding corporation. Free tax com    Generally, any distribution from a QIE to a shareholder that is attributable to gain from the sale or exchange of a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property interest is treated as a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property gain by the shareholder receiving the distribution. Free tax com A distribution by a QIE on stock regularly traded on an established securities market in the United States is not treated as gain from the sale or exchange of a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property interest if you did not own more than 5% of that stock at any time during the 1-year period ending on the date of the distribution. Free tax com A distribution that you do not treat as gain from the sale or exchange of a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property interest is included in your gross income as a regular dividend. Free tax com Note. Free tax com Beginning January 1, 2014 (unless extended by legislation), a RIC that is a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property holding corporation will only be treated as a QIE for certain distributions from the RIC that are directly or indirectly attributable to distributions received by the RIC from a REIT. Free tax com Domestically controlled QIE. Free tax com   The sale of an interest in a domestically controlled QIE is not the sale of a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property interest. Free tax com The entity is domestically controlled if at all times during the testing period less than 50% in value of its stock was held, directly or indirectly, by foreign persons. Free tax com The testing period is the shorter of (a) the 5-year period ending on the date of disposition, or (b) the period during which the entity was in existence. Free tax com Wash sale. Free tax com    If you dispose of an interest in a domestically controlled QIE in an applicable wash sale transaction, special rules apply. Free tax com An applicable wash sale transaction is one in which you: Dispose of an interest in the domestically controlled QIE during the 30-day period before the ex-dividend date of a distribution that you would (but for the disposition) have treated as gain from the sale or exchange of a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property interest, and Acquire, or enter into a contract or option to acquire, a substantially identical interest in that entity during the 61-day period that began on the first day of the 30-day period. Free tax com If this occurs, you are treated as having gain from the sale or exchange of a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property interest in an amount equal to the distribution made after June 15, 2006, that would have been treated as such gain. Free tax com This also applies to any substitute dividend payment. Free tax com   A transaction is not treated as an applicable wash sale transaction if: You actually receive the distribution from the domestically controlled QIE related to the interest disposed of, or acquired, in the transaction, or You dispose of any class of stock in a QIE that is regularly traded on an established securities market in the United States but only if you did not own more than 5% of that class of stock at any time during the 1-year period ending on the date of the distribution. Free tax com Alternative minimum tax. Free tax com   There may be a minimum tax on your net gain from the disposition of U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property interests. Free tax com Figure the amount of this tax, if any, on Form 6251. Free tax com Withholding of tax. Free tax com   If you dispose of a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property interest, the buyer may have to withhold tax. Free tax com See the discussion of Tax Withheld on Real Property Sales in chapter 8. Free tax com Foreign Income You must treat three kinds of foreign source income as effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States if: You have an office or other fixed place of business in the United States to which the income can be attributed, That office or place of business is a material factor in producing the income, and The income is produced in the ordinary course of the trade or business carried on through that office or other fixed place of business. Free tax com An office or other fixed place of business is a material factor if it significantly contributes to, and is an essential economic element in, the earning of the income. Free tax com The three kinds of foreign source income are listed below. Free tax com Rents and royalties for the use of, or for the privilege of using, intangible personal property located outside the United States or from any interest in such property. Free tax com Included are rents or royalties for the use, or for the privilege of using, outside the United States, patents, copyrights, secret processes and formulas, goodwill, trademarks, trade brands, franchises, and similar properties if the rents or royalties are from the active conduct of a trade or business in the United States. Free tax com Dividends, interest, or amounts received for the provision of a guarantee of indebtedness issued after September 27, 2010, from the active conduct of a banking, financing, or similar business in the United States. Free tax com A substitute dividend or interest payment received under a securities lending transaction or a sale-repurchase transaction is treated the same as the amounts received on the transferred security. Free tax com Income, gain, or loss from the sale outside the United States, through the U. Free tax com S. Free tax com office or other fixed place of business, of: Stock in trade, Property that would be included in inventory if on hand at the end of the tax year, or Property held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of business. Free tax com Item (3) will not apply if you sold the property for use, consumption, or disposition outside the United States and an office or other fixed place of business in a foreign country was a material factor in the sale. Free tax com Any foreign source income that is equivalent to any item of income described above is treated as effectively connected with a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com trade or business. Free tax com For example, foreign source interest and dividend equivalents are treated as U. Free tax com S. Free tax com effectively connected income if the income is derived by a foreign person in the active conduct of a banking, financing, or similar business within the United States. Free tax com Tax on Effectively Connected Income Income you receive during the tax year that is effectively connected with your trade or business in the United States is, after allowable deductions, taxed at the rates that apply to U. Free tax com S. Free tax com citizens and residents. Free tax com Generally, you can receive effectively connected income only if you are a nonresident alien engaged in trade or business in the United States during the tax year. Free tax com However, income you receive from the sale or exchange of property, the performance of services, or any other transaction in another tax year is treated as effectively connected in that year if it would have been effectively connected in the year the transaction took place or you performed the services. Free tax com Example. Free tax com Ted Richards, a nonresident alien, entered the United States in August 2012, to perform personal services in the U. Free tax com S. Free tax com office of his overseas employer. Free tax com He worked in the U. Free tax com S. Free tax com office until December 25, 2012, but did not leave this country until January 11, 2013. Free tax com On January 8, 2013, he received his final paycheck for services performed in the United States during 2012. Free tax com All of Ted's income during his stay here is U. Free tax com S. Free tax com source income. Free tax com During 2012, Ted was engaged in the trade or business of performing personal services in the United States. Free tax com Therefore, all amounts paid to him in 2012 for services performed in the United States during 2012 are effectively connected with that trade or business during 2012. Free tax com The salary payment Ted received in January 2013 is U. Free tax com S. Free tax com source income to him in 2013. Free tax com It is effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States because he was engaged in a trade or business in the United States during 2012 when he performed the services that earned the income. Free tax com Real property income. Free tax com   You may be able to choose to treat all income from real property as effectively connected. Free tax com See Income From Real Property , later, in this chapter. Free tax com The 30% Tax Tax at a 30% (or lower treaty) rate applies to certain items of income or gains from U. Free tax com S. Free tax com sources but only if the items are not effectively connected with your U. Free tax com S. Free tax com trade or business. Free tax com Fixed or Determinable Income The 30% (or lower treaty) rate applies to the gross amount of U. Free tax com S. Free tax com source fixed or determinable annual or periodic gains, profits, or income. Free tax com Income is fixed when it is paid in amounts known ahead of time. Free tax com Income is determinable whenever there is a basis for figuring the amount to be paid. Free tax com Income can be periodic if it is paid from time to time. Free tax com It does not have to be paid annually or at regular intervals. Free tax com Income can be determinable or periodic even if the length of time during which the payments are made is increased or decreased. Free tax com Items specifically included as fixed or determinable income are interest (other than original issue discount), dividends, dividend equivalent payments (defined in chapter 2), rents, premiums, annuities, salaries, wages, and other compensation. Free tax com A substitute dividend or interest payment received under a securities lending transaction or a sale-repurchase transaction is treated the same as the amounts received on the transferred security. Free tax com Other items of income, such as royalties, also may be subject to the 30% tax. Free tax com Some fixed or determinable income may be exempt from U. Free tax com S. Free tax com tax. Free tax com See chapter 3 if you are not sure whether the income is taxable. Free tax com Original issue discount (OID). Free tax com   If you sold, exchanged, or received a payment on a bond or other debt instrument that was issued at a discount after March 31, 1972, all or part of the original issue discount (OID) (other than portfolio interest) may be subject to the 30% tax. Free tax com The amount of OID is the difference between the stated redemption price at maturity and the issue price of the debt instrument. Free tax com The 30% tax applies in the following circumstances. Free tax com You received a payment on a debt instrument. Free tax com In this case, the amount of OID subject to tax is the OID that accrued while you held the debt instrument minus the OID previously taken into account. Free tax com But the tax on the OID cannot be more than the payment minus the tax on the interest payment on the debt instrument. Free tax com You sold or exchanged the debt instrument. Free tax com The amount of OID subject to tax is the OID that accrued while you held the debt instrument minus the amount already taxed in (1) above. Free tax com   Report on your return the amount of OID shown on Form 1042-S, Foreign Person's U. Free tax com S. Free tax com Source Income Subject to Withholding, if you bought the debt instrument at original issue. Free tax com However, you must recompute your proper share of OID shown on Form 1042-S if any of the following apply. Free tax com You bought the debt instrument at a premium or paid an acquisition premium. Free tax com The debt instrument is a stripped bond or a stripped coupon (including zero coupon instruments backed by U. Free tax com S. Free tax com Treasury securities). Free tax com The debt instrument is a contingent payment or inflation-indexed debt instrument. Free tax com For the definition of premium and acquisition premium and instructions on how to recompute OID, get Publication 1212. Free tax com   If you held a bond or other debt instrument that was issued at a discount before April 1, 1972, contact the IRS for further information. Free tax com See chapter 12. Free tax com Gambling Winnings In general, nonresident aliens are subject to the 30% tax on the gross proceeds from gambling won in the United States if that income is not effectively connected with a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com trade or business and is not exempted by treaty. Free tax com However, no tax is imposed on nonbusiness gambling income a nonresident alien wins playing blackjack, baccarat, craps, roulette, or big-6 wheel in the United States. Free tax com Nonresident aliens are taxed at graduated rates on net gambling income won in the United States that is effectively connected with a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com trade or business. Free tax com Social Security Benefits A nonresident alien must include 85% of any U. Free tax com S. Free tax com social security benefit (and the social security equivalent part of a tier 1 railroad retirement benefit) in U. Free tax com S. Free tax com source fixed or determinable annual or periodic income. Free tax com Social security benefits include monthly retirement, survivor, and disability benefits. Free tax com This income is exempt under some tax treaties. Free tax com See Table 1 in Publication 901, U. Free tax com S. Free tax com Tax Treaties, for a list of tax treaties that exempt U. Free tax com S. Free tax com social security benefits from U. Free tax com S. Free tax com tax. Free tax com Sales or Exchanges of Capital Assets These rules apply only to those capital gains and losses from sources in the United States that are not effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Free tax com They apply even if you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Free tax com These rules do not apply to the sale or exchange of a U. Free tax com S. Free tax com real property interest or to the sale of any property that is effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Free tax com See Real Property Gain or Loss , earlier, under Effectively Connected Income. Free tax com A capital asset is everything you own except: Inventory. Free tax com Business accounts or notes receivable. Free tax com Depreciable property used in a trade or business. Free tax com Real property used in a trade or business. Free tax com Supplies regularly used in a trade or business. Free tax com Certain copyrights, literary or musical or artistic compositions, letters or memoranda, or similar property. Free tax com Certain U. Free tax com S. Free tax com government publications. Free tax com Certain commodities derivative financial instruments held by a commodities derivatives dealer. Free tax com Hedging transactions. Free tax com A capital gain is a gain on the sale or exchange of a capital asset. Free tax com A capital loss is a loss on the sale or exchange of a capital asset. Free tax com If the sale is in foreign currency, for the purpose of determining gain, the cost and selling price of the property should be expressed in U. Free tax com S.
