H and r block military Introduction This chapter discusses how to pay your U. H and r block military S. H and r block military income tax as you earn or receive income during the year. H and r block military In general, the federal income tax is a pay as you go tax. H and r block military There are two ways to pay as you go. H and r block military Withholding. H and r block military If you are an employee, your employer probably withholds income tax from your pay. H and r block military Tax may also be withheld from certain other income—including pensions, bonuses, commissions, and gambling winnings. H and r block military In each case, the amount withheld is paid to the U. H and r block military S. H and r block military Treasury in your name. H and r block military Estimated tax. H and r block military If you do not pay your tax through withholding, or do not pay enough tax that way, you might have to pay estimated tax. H and r block military People who are in business for themselves generally will have to pay their tax this way. H and r block military You may have to pay estimated tax if you receive income such as dividends, interest, rent, and royalties. H and r block military Estimated tax is used to pay not only income tax, but self-employment tax and alternative minimum tax as well. H and r block military Topics - This chapter discusses: How to notify your employer of your alien status, Income subject to withholding of income tax, Exemptions from withholding, Social security and Medicare taxes, and Estimated tax rules.

H and r block military Notification of Alien Status You must let your employer know whether you are a resident or a nonresident alien so your employer can withhold the correct amount of tax from your wages. H and r block military If you are a resident alien under the rules discussed in chapter 1, you must file Form W-9 or a similar statement with your employer. H and r block military If you are a nonresident alien under those rules, you must furnish to your employer Form 8233 or Form W-8BEN, establishing that you are a foreign person, or Form W-4, establishing that your compensation is subject to graduated withholding at the same rates as resident aliens or U. H and r block military S. H and r block military citizens. H and r block military If you are a resident alien and you receive income other than wages (such as dividends and royalties) from sources within the United States, file Form W-9 or similar statement with the withholding agent (generally, the payer of the income) so the agent will not withhold tax on the income at the 30% (or lower treaty) rate. H and r block military If you receive this type of income as a nonresident alien, file Form W-8BEN with the withholding agent so that the agent will withhold tax at the 30% (or lower treaty) rate. H and r block military However, if the income is effectively connected with a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military trade or business, file Form W-8ECI instead. H and r block military Withholding From Compensation The following discussion generally applies only to nonresident aliens. H and r block military Tax is withheld from resident aliens in the same manner as U. H and r block military S. H and r block military citizens. H and r block military Wages and other compensation paid to a nonresident alien for services performed as an employee are usually subject to graduated withholding at the same rates as resident aliens and U. H and r block military S. H and r block military citizens. H and r block military Therefore, your compensation, unless it is specifically excluded from the term “wages” by law, or is exempt from tax by treaty, is subject to graduated withholding. H and r block military Withholding on Wages If you are an employee and you receive wages subject to graduated withholding, you will be required to fill out a Form W-4. H and r block military Also fill out Form W-4 for a scholarship or fellowship grant to the extent it represents payment for past, present, or future services and for which you are not claiming a tax treaty withholding exemption on Form 8233 (discussed later under Income Entitled to Tax Treaty Benefits). H and r block military These are services you are required to perform as an employee and as a condition of receiving the scholarship or fellowship (or tuition reduction). H and r block military Nonresident aliens should fill out Form W-4 using the following instructions instead of the instructions on the Form W-4. H and r block military This is because of the restrictions on a nonresident alien's filing status, the limited number of personal exemptions a nonresident alien is allowed, and because a nonresident alien cannot claim the standard deduction. H and r block military Enter your social security number (SSN) on line 2. H and r block military Do not enter an individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN). H and r block military Check only “Single” marital status on line 3 (regardless of your actual marital status). H and r block military Claim only one allowance on line 5, unless you are a resident of Canada, Mexico, or South Korea, or a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military national. H and r block military Write “Nonresident Alien” or “NRA” on the dotted line on line 6. H and r block military You can request additional withholding on line 6 at your option. H and r block military Do not claim “Exempt” withholding status on line 7. H and r block military A U. H and r block military S. H and r block military national is an individual who, although not a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military citizen, owes his or her allegiance to the United States. H and r block military U. H and r block military S. H and r block military nationals include American Samoans, and Northern Mariana Islanders who chose to become U. H and r block military S. H and r block military nationals instead of U. H and r block military S. H and r block military citizens. H and r block military See Withholding on Scholarships and Fellowship Grants later, for how to fill out Form W-4 if you receive a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military source scholarship or fellowship grant that is not a payment for services. H and r block military Students and business apprentices from India. H and r block military   If you are eligible for the benefits of Article 21(2) of the United States-India Income Tax Treaty, you may claim an additional withholding allowance for the standard deduction. H and r block military You can claim an additional withholding allowance for your spouse only if your spouse will have no gross income for 2013 and cannot be claimed as a dependent on another U. H and r block military S. H and r block military taxpayer's 2013 return. H and r block military You may also claim an additional withholding allowance for each of your dependents not admitted to the United States on “F-2,” “J-2,” or “M-2” visas if they meet the same rules that apply to U. H and r block military S. H and r block military citizens. H and r block military Household employees. H and r block military   If you work as a household employee, your employer does not have to withhold income tax. H and r block military However, you may agree to voluntary income tax withholding by filing a Form W-4 with your employer. H and r block military The agreement goes into effect when your employer accepts the agreement by beginning the withholding. H and r block military You or your employer may end the agreement by letting the other know in writing. H and r block military Agricultural workers. H and r block military   If you are an agricultural worker on an H-2A visa, your employer does not have to withhold income tax. H and r block military However, your employer will withhold income tax only if you and your employer agree to withhold. H and r block military In that case, you must provide your employer with a properly completed Form W-4. H and r block military You can find more information about not having tax withheld at www. H and r block military irs. H and r block military gov/Individuals/International-Taxpayers/Foreign-Agricultural-Workers. H and r block military Wages Exempt From Withholding Wages that are exempt from U. H and r block military S. H and r block military income tax under an income tax treaty are generally exempt from withholding. H and r block military For information on how to claim this exemption from withholding, see Income Entitled to Tax Treaty Benefits , later. H and r block military Wages paid to aliens who are residents of American Samoa, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, or the U. H and r block military S. H and r block military Virgin Islands may be exempt from withholding. H and r block military The following paragraphs explain these exemptions. H and r block military Residents of Canada or Mexico engaged in transportation-related employment. H and r block military   Certain residents of Canada or Mexico who enter or leave the United States at frequent intervals are not subject to withholding on their wages. H and r block military These persons either: Perform duties in transportation service between the United States and Canada or Mexico, or Perform duties connected to the construction, maintenance, or operation of a waterway, viaduct, dam, or bridge crossed by, or crossing, the boundary between the United States and Canada or the boundary between the United States and Mexico. H and r block military    This employment is subject to withholding of social security and Medicare taxes unless the services are performed for a railroad. H and r block military   To qualify for the exemption from withholding during a tax year, a Canadian or Mexican resident must give the employer a statement in duplicate with name, address, and identification number, certifying that the resident: Is not a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military citizen or resident, Is a resident of Canada or Mexico, whichever applies, and Expects to perform duties previously described during the tax year in question. H and r block military   The statement can be in any form, but it must be dated and signed by the employee and must include a written declaration that it is made under the penalties of perjury. H and r block military Residents of American Samoa and Puerto Rico. H and r block military   If you are a nonresident alien employee who is a resident of American Samoa or Puerto Rico, wages for services performed in American Samoa or Puerto Rico are generally not subject to withholding unless you are an employee of the United States or any of its agencies in American Samoa or Puerto Rico. H and r block military Residents of the U. H and r block military S. H and r block military Virgin Islands. H and r block military   Nonresident aliens who are bona fide residents of the U. H and r block military S Virgin Islands are not subject to withholding of U. H and r block military S. H and r block military tax on income earned while temporarily employed in the United States. H and r block military This is because those persons pay their income tax to the U. H and r block military S. H and r block military Virgin Islands. H and r block military To avoid having tax withheld on income earned in the United States, bona fide residents of the U. H and r block military S. H and r block military Virgin Islands should write a letter, in duplicate, to their employers, stating that they are bona fide residents of the U. H and r block military S. H and r block military Virgin Islands and expect to pay tax on all income to the U. H and r block military S. H and r block military Virgin Islands. H and r block military Withholding on Pensions If you receive a pension as a result of personal services performed in the United States, the pension income is subject to the 30% (or lower treaty) rate of withholding. H and r block military You may, however, have tax withheld at graduated rates on the portion of the pension that arises from the performance of services in the United States after December 31, 1986. H and r block military You must fill out Form W-8BEN and give it to the withholding agent or payer before the income is paid or credited to you. H and r block military Withholding on Tip Income Tips you receive during the year for services performed in the United States are subject to U. H and r block military S. H and r block military income tax. H and r block military Include them in taxable income. H and r block military In addition, tips received while working for one employer, amounting to $20 or more in a month, are subject to graduated withholding. H and r block military Independent Contractors If there is no employee-employer relationship between you and the person for whom you perform services, your compensation is subject to the 30% (or lower treaty) rate of withholding. H and r block military However, if you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States during the tax year, your compensation for personal services as an independent contractor (independent personal services) may be entirely or partly exempt from withholding if you reach an agreement with the Internal Revenue Service on the amount of withholding required. H and r block military An agreement that you reach with the IRS regarding withholding from your compensation for independent personal services is effective for payments covered by the agreement after it is agreed to by all parties. H and r block military You must agree to timely file an income tax return for the current tax year. H and r block military Central withholding agreements. H and r block military   If you are a nonresident alien entertainer or athlete performing or participating in athletic events in the United States, you may be able to enter into a withholding agreement with the IRS for reduced withholding provided certain requirements are met. H and r block military Under no circumstances will such a withholding agreement reduce taxes withheld to less than the anticipated amount of income tax liability. H and r block military   File Form 13930 and the required attachments with the IRS to request a central withholding agreement. H and r block military Either you or your authorized representative can file the form. H and r block military It should be sent to the IRS at least 45 days before the tour begins or the event occurs. H and r block military Exceptions will be considered on a case by case basis. H and r block military   For more information on the CWA program, go to www. H and r block military irs. H and r block military gov/Individuals/International-Taxpayers/Central-Withholding-Agreements. H and r block military Final payment exemption. H and r block military   Your final payment of compensation during the tax year for independent personal services may be entirely or partly exempt from withholding. H and r block military This exemption is available only once during your tax year and applies to a maximum of $5,000 of compensation. H and r block military To obtain this exemption, you or your agent must give the following statements and information to the Commissioner or his delegate. H and r block military A statement by each withholding agent from whom you have received gross income effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States during the tax year, showing the amount of income paid and the tax withheld. H and r block military Each statement must be signed by the withholding agent and verified by a declaration that it is made under penalties of perjury. H and r block military A statement by the withholding agent from whom you expect to receive the final payment of compensation, showing the amount of the payment and the amount of tax that would be withheld if a final payment exemption were not granted. H and r block military This statement must also be signed by the withholding agent and verified by a declaration that it is made under penalties of perjury. H and r block military A statement by you that you do not intend to receive any other income effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States during the current tax year. H and r block military The amount of tax that has been withheld or paid under any other provision of the Internal Revenue Code or regulations for any income effectively connected with your trade or business in the United States during the current tax year. H and r block military The amount of your outstanding tax liabilities, if any, including interest and penalties, from the current tax year or prior tax periods. H and r block military Any provision of an income tax treaty under which a partial or complete exemption from withholding may be claimed, the country of your residence, and a statement of sufficient facts to justify an exemption under the treaty. H and r block military A statement signed by you, and verified by a declaration that it is made under penalties of perjury, that all the information given is true and that to your knowledge no relevant information has been omitted. H and r block military   If satisfied with the information, the IRS will determine the amount of your tentative income tax for the tax year on gross income effectively connected with your trade or business in the United States. H and r block military Ordinary and necessary business expenses can be taken into account if proven to the satisfaction of the Commissioner or his delegate. H and r block military   The Commissioner or his delegate will send you a letter, directed to the withholding agent, showing the amount of the final payment of compensation that is exempt from withholding and the amount that can be paid to you because of the exemption. H and r block military You must give two copies of the letter to the withholding agent and must also attach a copy of the letter to your income tax return for the tax year for which the exemption is effective. H and r block military Allowance for Personal Exemption Withholding on payments for independent personal services is generally based on the amount of your compensation payment minus the value of one exemption ($3,950 for 2014). H and r block military To determine the income for independent personal services performed in the United States to which the 30% (or lower treaty) rate will apply, you are allowed one personal exemption if you are not a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military national and are not a resident of Canada, Mexico, or South Korea. H and r block military For purposes of 30% withholding, the exemption is prorated at $10. H and r block military 82 a day in 2014 for the period that labor or personal services are performed in the United States. H and r block military To claim an exemption from withholding on the personal exemption amount, fill out the applicable parts of Form 8233 and give it to the withholding agent. H and r block military Example. H and r block military Eric Johannsen, who is a resident of Country X worked under a contract with a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military firm (not as an employee) in the United States for 100 days during 2014 before returning to his country. H and r block military He earned $6,000 for the services performed (not considered wages) in the United States. H and r block military Eric is married and has three dependent children. H and r block military His wife is not employed and has no income subject to U. H and r block military S. H and r block military tax. H and r block military The amount of the personal exemption to be allowed against the income for his personal services performed within the United States in 2014 is $1,082 (100 days × $10. H and r block military 82), and withholding at 30% is applied against the balance. H and r block military Thus, $1,475. H and r block military 40 in tax is withheld from Eric's earnings (30% of $4,918 ($6,000 − $1,082). H and r block military U. H and r block military S. H and r block military nationals or residents of Canada, Mexico, or South Korea. H and r block military   If you are a nonresident alien who is a resident of Canada, Mexico, or South Korea, or who is a national of the United States, you are subject to the same 30% withholding on your compensation for independent personal services performed in the United States. H and r block military However, if you are a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military national or a resident of Canada or Mexico, you are allowed the same personal exemptions as U. H and r block military S. H and r block military citizens. H and r block military For the 30% (or lower treaty) rate withholding, you can take $10. H and r block military 82 per day for each allowable exemption in 2014. H and r block military If you are a resident of South Korea, you are allowed personal exemptions for yourself and for your spouse and children who live with you in the United States at any time during the tax year. H and r block military However, the additional exemptions for your spouse and children must be further prorated as explained in chapter 5 under Exemptions . H and r block military Students and business apprentices from India. H and r block military   If you are eligible for the benefits of Article 21(2) of the United States-India Income Tax Treaty, you are allowed an exemption for your spouse only if your spouse will have no gross income for 2014 and cannot be claimed as a dependent on another U. H and r block military S. H and r block military taxpayer's 2014 return. H and r block military You are also allowed an exemption for each dependent not admitted to the United States on “F-2,” “J-2,” or “M-2” visas if they meet the same rules that apply to U. H and r block military S. H and r block military citizens. H and r block military For the 30% (or lower treaty rate) withholding on compensation for independent personal services performed in the United States, you are allowed $10. H and r block military 82 per day for each allowable exemption in 2014. H and r block military Refund of Taxes Withheld in Error Multi-level marketing. H and r block military   If you are a distributor for a multi-level marketing company who had taxes withheld in error, file a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military income tax return (Form 1040NR, Form 1040NR-EZ, or Form 1120-F) or, if a tax return has already been filed, a claim for refund (Form 1040X or amended Form 1120-F) to recover the amount withheld in error. H and r block military You must also attach to the U. H and r block military S. H and r block military income tax return or claim for refund supporting information that includes, but is not limited to, the following items. H and r block military A copy of your Form W-2, Form 1042-S, or Form 1099 to prove the amount of taxes withheld. H and r block military A statement explaining why income reported on your Form W-2, Form 1042-S, or Form 1099 is not subject to U. H and r block military S. H and r block military taxation. H and r block military A statement listing all the dates you entered and left the United States during the taxable year. H and r block military If the compensation is multi-year compensation, the statement must list all the dates you entered and left the United States during each of the taxable years to which the compensation is attributable. H and r block military A copy of any documents or records that show the number of days you actually were present in the United States during the years listed. H and r block military A statement providing: (a) the number of days (or unit of time less than a day, if appropriate) that personal services were performed in the United States in connection with recruiting, training, and supporting your lower-tier distributors; and (b) the total number of days (or unit of time less than a day, if appropriate) that personal services were performed globally in connection with recruiting, training, and supporting your lower-tier distributors. H and r block military Any further relevant document or record supporting your claim that the taxes were withheld in error. H and r block military Withholding From Other Income Other income subject to 30% withholding generally includes fixed or determinable income such as interest (other than portfolio interest), dividends, pensions and annuities, and gains from certain sales and exchanges, discussed in chapter 4. H and r block military It also includes 85% of social security benefits paid to nonresident aliens. H and r block military Refund of taxes withheld in error on social security benefits paid to resident aliens. H and r block military   Social security benefits paid to a lawful permanent resident (green card holder) are not subject to 30% withholding. H and r block military For U. H and r block military S. H and r block military income tax purposes, green card holders continue to be resident aliens until their lawful permanent resident status under immigration laws is either taken away or is administratively or judicially determined to have been abandoned. H and r block military See Green Card Test in chapter 1. H and r block military If you are a green card holder and tax was withheld in error on your social security benefits because you have a foreign address, the withholding tax is refundable by the Social Security Administration (SSA) or the IRS. H and r block military SSA will refund taxes erroneously withheld if the refund can be processed during the same calendar year in which the tax was withheld. H and r block military If SSA cannot refund the taxes withheld, you must file a Form 1040 or 1040A with the Department of the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service Center, Austin, TX 73301 to determine if you are entitled to a refund. H and r block military You must also attach the following to your Form 1040 or 1040A. H and r block military A copy of Form SSA-1042S, Social Security Benefit Statement. H and r block military A copy of the “green card. H and r block military ” A signed declaration that includes the following statements: The SSA should not have withheld income tax from my social security benefits because I am a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military lawful permanent resident and my green card has been neither revoked nor administratively or judicially determined to have been abandoned. H and r block military I am filing a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military income tax return for the tax year as a resident alien reporting all of my worldwide income. H and r block military I have not claimed benefits for the tax year under an income tax treaty as the resident of a country other than the United States. H and r block military Other income not subject to withholding of 30% (or lower treaty) rate. H and r block military   The following income is not subject to withholding at the 30% (or lower treaty) rate if you file Form W-8ECI with the payer of the income. H and r block military Income (other than compensation) that is effectively connected with your U. H and r block military S. H and r block military trade or business. H and r block military Income from real property that you choose to treat as effectively connected with a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military trade or business. H and r block military See Income From Real Property in chapter 4 for details about this choice. H and r block military   Special rules for withholding on partnership income, scholarships, and fellowships are explained next. H and r block military Tax Withheld on Partnership Income If you are a foreign partner in a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military or foreign partnership, the partnership will withhold tax on your share of effectively connected taxable income (ECTI) from the partnership. H and r block military You may be able to reduce your ECTI subject to withholding by certain partner-level deductions. H and r block military Generally, you must use Form 8804-C for this purpose. H and r block military See the Instructions for Form 8804-C for more information. H and r block military The withholding rate on your share of effectively connected income is generally the highest rate of tax specified under section 1 of the Code (39. H and r block military 6% for 2014). H and r block military However, the partnership may withhold at the highest rate that applies to a particular type of income allocable to you if you gave the partnership the appropriate documentation. H and r block military Long-term capital gain is an example of a particular type of income to which the highest tax rate applies. H and r block military Claim the tax withheld as a credit on your 2014 Form 1040NR. H and r block military The partnership will give you a statement on Form 8805, Foreign Partner's Information Statement of Section 1446 Withholding Tax, showing the tax withheld. H and r block military A partnership that is publicly traded will withhold tax on your actual distributions of effectively connected income. H and r block military In this case the partnership will give you a statement on Form 1042-S, Foreign Person's U. H and r block military S. H and r block military Source Income Subject to Withholding. H and r block military Withholding on Scholarships and Fellowship Grants There is no withholding on a qualified scholarship received by a candidate for a degree. H and r block military See chapter 3. H and r block military If you are a nonresident alien student or grantee with an “F,” “J,” “M,” or “Q” visa and you receive a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military source grant or scholarship that is not fully exempt, the withholding agent (usually the payer of the scholarship) withholds tax at 14% (or lower treaty rate) of the taxable part of the grant or scholarship that is not a payment for services. H and r block military However, if you are not a candidate for a degree and the grant does not meet certain requirements, tax will be withheld at the 30% (or lower treaty) rate. H and r block military Any part of a scholarship or fellowship grant that is a payment for services is subject to graduated withholding as discussed earlier under Withholding on Wages. H and r block military Alternate Withholding Procedure Your withholding agent may choose to use an alternate procedure by asking you to fill out Form W-4 and the Personal Allowances Worksheet (attached to Form W-4). H and r block military Use the following instructions instead of the Form W-4 instructions to complete the worksheet. H and r block military Line A. H and r block military   Enter the total of the following amounts on line A. H and r block military Personal exemption. H and r block military   Include the prorated part of your allowable personal exemption. H and r block military Figure the amount by multiplying the number of days you expect to be in the United States in 2014 by the daily exemption amount ($10. H and r block military 82). H and r block military Expenses. H and r block military   Include expenses that will be deductible on your return. H and r block military These include away-from-home expenses (meals, lodging, and transportation), certain state and local income taxes, charitable contributions, and casualty losses, discussed earlier under Itemized Deductions in chapter 5. H and r block military They also include business expenses, moving expenses, and the IRA deduction discussed under Deductions in chapter 5. H and r block military Nontaxable grant or scholarship. H and r block military   Include the part of your grant or scholarship that is not taxable under U. H and r block military S. H and r block military law or under a tax treaty. H and r block military Line B. H and r block military   Enter -0- unless the following paragraph applies to you. H and r block military   If you are a student who qualifies under Article 21(2) of the United States-India Income Tax Treaty, and you are not claiming deductions for away-from-home expenses or other itemized deductions (discussed earlier), enter the standard deduction on line B. H and r block military The standard deduction amount for 2013 is $6,100. H and r block military Lines C and D.

H and r block military   If you are a resident of India who is eligible for the benefits of Article 21(2) of the United States-India Income Tax Treaty, you can claim an additional daily exemption amount for your spouse only if your spouse will have no gross income for 2014 and cannot be claimed as a dependent on another U. H and r block military S. H and r block military taxpayer's 2014 return. H and r block military You can also claim an additional amount for each of your dependents not admitted to the United States on “F-2,” “J-2,” or “M-2” visas if they meet the same rules that apply to U. H and r block military S. H and r block military citizens. H and r block military   Enter any additional amount for your spouse on line C. H and r block military Enter any additional amount for your dependents on line D. H and r block military Lines E, F, and G. H and r block military   No entries should be made on lines E, F, and G. H and r block military Line H. H and r block military   Add the amounts on lines A through D and enter the total on line H. H and r block military Form W-4. H and r block military   Complete lines 1 through 4 of Form W-4. H and r block military Sign and date the form and give it with the Personal Allowances Worksheet to your withholding agent. H and r block military   If you file a Form W-4 to reduce or eliminate the withholding on your scholarship or grant, you must file an annual U. H and r block military S. H and r block military income tax return to be allowed the exemptions and deductions you claimed on that form. H and r block military If you are in the United States during more than one tax year, you must attach a statement to your yearly Form W-4 indicating that you have filed a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military income tax return for the previous year. H and r block military If you have not been in the United States long enough to be required to file a return, you must attach a statement to your Form W-4 saying you will file a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military income tax return when required. H and r block military After the withholding agent has accepted your Form W-4, tax will be withheld on your scholarship or grant at the graduated rates that apply to wages. H and r block military The gross amount of the income is reduced by the amount on line H of the worksheet and the withholding tax is figured on the remainder. H and r block military You will receive a Form 1042-S from the withholding agent (usually the payer of your grant) showing the gross amount of your taxable scholarship or fellowship grant less the withholding allowance amount, the tax rate, and the amount of tax withheld. H and r block military Use this form to prepare your annual U. H and r block military S. H and r block military income tax return. H and r block military Income Entitled to Tax Treaty Benefits If a tax treaty between the United States and your country provides an exemption from, or a reduced rate of, tax for certain items of income, you should notify the payor of the income (the withholding agent) of your foreign status to claim a tax treaty withholding exemption. H and r block military Generally, you do this by filing either Form W-8BEN or Form 8233 with the withholding agent. H and r block military File Form W-8BEN for income that is not personal services income. H and r block military File Form 8233 for personal services income as discussed next. H and r block military Employees and independent contractors. H and r block military   If you perform personal services as an employee or as an independent contractor and you can claim an exemption from withholding on that personal service income because of a tax treaty, give Form 8233 to each withholding agent from whom amounts will be received. H and r block military   Even if you submit Form 8233, the withholding agent may have to withhold tax from your income. H and r block military This is because the factors on which the treaty exemption is based may not be determinable until after the close of the tax year. H and r block military In this case, you must file Form 1040NR (or Form 1040NR-EZ if you qualify) to recover any overwithheld tax and to provide the IRS with proof that you are entitled to the treaty exemption. H and r block military Students, teachers, and researchers. H and r block military   Students, teachers, and researchers must attach the appropriate statement shown in Appendix A (for students) or Appendix B (for teachers and researchers) at the end of this publication to the Form 8233 and give it to the withholding agent. H and r block military For treaties not listed in the appendices, attach a statement in a format similar to those for other treaties. H and r block military   If you received a scholarship or fellowship and personal services income from the same withholding agent, use Form 8233 to claim an exemption from withholding based on a tax treaty for both types of income. H and r block military Special events and promotions. H and r block military   Withholding at the full 30% rate is required for payments made to a nonresident alien or foreign corporation for gate receipts (or television or other receipts) from rock music festivals, boxing promotions, and other entertainment or sporting events, unless the withholding agent has been specifically advised otherwise by letter from the IRS. H and r block military Form 13930 is used to request a reduction in withholding. H and r block military Withholding may be required even if the income may be exempt from taxation by provisions of a tax treaty. H and r block military One reason for this is that the partial or complete exemption is usually based on factors that cannot be determined until after the close of the tax year. H and r block military You will be required to pay U. H and r block military S. H and r block military tax, at the time of your departure from the United States, on any income for which you incorrectly claimed a treaty exemption. H and r block military For more details on treaty provisions that apply to compensation, see Publication 901. H and r block military Tax Withheld on Real Property Sales If you are a nonresident alien and you dispose of a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military real property interest, the transferee (buyer) of the property generally must withhold a tax equal to 10% of the amount realized on the disposition. H and r block military A distribution by a qualified investment entity to a nonresident alien shareholder that is treated as gain from the sale or exchange of a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military real property interest by the shareholder is subject to withholding at 35%. H and r block military Withholding is also required on certain distributions and other transactions by domestic or foreign corporations, partnerships, trusts, and estates. H and r block military These rules are covered in Publication 515. H and r block military For information on the tax treatment of dispositions of U. H and r block military S. H and r block military real property interests, see Real Property Gain or Loss in chapter 4. H and r block military If you are a partner in a domestic partnership, and the partnership disposes of a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military real property interest at a gain, the partnership will withhold tax on the amount of gain allocable to its foreign partners. H and r block military Your share of the income and tax withheld will be reported to you on Form 8805, Foreign Partner's Information Statement of Section 1446 Withholding Tax, or Form 1042-S, Foreign Person's U. H and r block military S. H and r block military Source Income Subject to Withholding (in the case of a publicly traded partnership). H and r block military Withholding is not required in the following situations. H and r block military The property is acquired by the buyer for use as a residence and the amount realized (sales price) is not more than $300,000. H and r block military The property disposed of is an interest in a domestic corporation if any class of stock of the corporation is regularly traded on an established securities market. H and r block military However, this exception does not apply to certain dispositions of substantial amounts of non-publicly traded interests in publicly traded corporations. H and r block military The property disposed of is an interest in a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military corporation that is not regularly traded on an established market and you (the seller) give the buyer a copy of a statement issued by the corporation certifying that the interest is not a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military real property interest. H and r block military You (the seller) give the buyer a certification stating, under penalties of perjury, that you are not a foreign person, and containing your name, U. H and r block military S. H and r block military taxpayer identification number, and home address. H and r block military You can give the certification to a qualified substitute. H and r block military The qualified substitute gives the buyer a statement, under penalties of perjury, that the certification is in the possession of the qualified substitute. H and r block military For this purpose, a qualified substitute is (a) the person (including any attorney or title company) responsible for closing the transaction, other than your agent, and (b) the buyer's agent. H and r block military The buyer receives a withholding certificate from the Internal Revenue Service. H and r block military You give the buyer written notice that you are not required to recognize any gain or loss on the transfer because of a nonrecognition provision in the Internal Revenue Code or a provision in a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military tax treaty. H and r block military The buyer must file a copy of the notice with the Ogden Service Center, P. H and r block military O. H and r block military Box 409101, Ogden, UT 84409. H and r block military You must verify the notice as true and sign it under penalties of perjury. H and r block military The notice must contain the following information. H and r block military A statement that the notice is a notice of nonrecognition under regulation section 1. H and r block military 1445-2(d)(2). H and r block military Your name, taxpayer identification number, and home address. H and r block military A statement that you are not required to recognize any gain or loss on the transfer. H and r block military A brief description of the transfer. H and r block military A brief summary of the law and facts supporting your claim that recognition of gain or loss is not required. H and r block military You may not give the buyer a written notice for any of the following transfers: the sale of your main home on which you exclude gain, a like-kind exchange that does not qualify for nonrecognition treatment in its entirety, or a deferred like-kind exchange that has not been completed at the time the buyer must file Form 8288. H and r block military Instead, a withholding certificate (described next) must be obtained. H and r block military The amount you realize on the transfer of a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military real property interest is zero. H and r block military The property is acquired by the United States, a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military state or possession, a political subdivision, or the District of Columbia. H and r block military The distribution is from a domestically controlled qualified investment entity (QIE) and is treated as a distribution of a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military real property interest only because an interest in the entity was disposed of in an applicable wash sale transaction. H and r block military For the definition of a QIE, see Qualified investment entities under Real Property Gain or Loss, earlier. H and r block military See Wash sale under Real Property Gain or Loss in chapter 4. H and r block military The certifications in (3) and (4) must be disregarded by the buyer if the buyer or qualified substitute has actual knowledge, or receives notice from a seller's or buyer's agent (or substitute), that they are false. H and r block military This also applies to the qualified substitute's statement under (4). H and r block military Withholding certificates. H and r block military   The tax required to be withheld on a disposition can be reduced or eliminated under a withholding certificate issued by the IRS. H and r block military Either you or the buyer can request a withholding certificate. H and r block military   A withholding certificate can be issued due to any of the following. H and r block military The IRS determines that reduced withholding is appropriate because either: The amount required to be withheld would be more than your maximum tax liability, or Withholding of the reduced amount would not jeopardize collection of the tax. H and r block military All of your realized gain is exempt from U. H and r block military S. H and r block military tax. H and r block military You or the buyer enters into an agreement for the payment of tax providing security for the tax liability. H and r block military   Get Publication 515 and Form 8288-B for information on procedures to request a withholding certificate. H and r block military Credit for tax withheld. H and r block military   The buyer must report and pay over the withheld tax within 20 days after the transfer using Form 8288, U. H and r block military S. H and r block military Withholding Tax Return for Dispositions by Foreign Persons of U. H and r block military S. H and r block military Real Property Interests. H and r block military This form is filed with the IRS with copies A and B of Form 8288-A, Statement of Withholding on Dispositions by Foreign Persons of U. H and r block military S. H and r block military Real Property Interests. H and r block military Copy B of this statement will be stamped received by the IRS and returned to you (the seller) if the statement is complete and includes your taxpayer identification number (TIN). H and r block military You must file Copy B with your tax return to take credit for the tax withheld. H and r block military   A stamped copy of Form 8288-A will not be provided to you if your TIN is not included on that form. H and r block military The IRS will send you a letter requesting the TIN and providing instructions for how to get a TIN. H and r block military When you provide the IRS with a TIN, the IRS will provide you with a stamped Copy B of Form 8288-A. H and r block military Social Security and Medicare Taxes If you work as an employee in the United States, you must pay social security and Medicare taxes in most cases. H and r block military Your payments of these taxes contribute to your coverage under the U. H and r block military S. H and r block military social security system. H and r block military Social security coverage provides retirement benefits, survivors and disability benefits, and medical insurance (Medicare) benefits to individuals who meet certain eligibility requirements. H and r block military In most cases, the first $113,700 of taxable wages received in 2013 for services performed in the United States is subject to social security tax. H and r block military All taxable wages are subject to Medicare tax. H and r block military Your employer deducts these taxes from each wage payment. H and r block military Your employer must deduct these taxes even if you do not expect to qualify for social security or Medicare benefits. H and r block military You can claim a credit for excess social security tax on your income tax return if you have more than one employer and the amount deducted from your combined wages for 2013 is more than $7,049. H and r block military 40. H and r block military Use the appropriate worksheet in chapter 3 of Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax, to figure your credit. H and r block military If any one employer deducted more than $7,049. H and r block military 40, you cannot claim a credit for that amount. H and r block military Ask your employer to refund the excess. H and r block military If your employer does not refund the excess, you can file a claim for refund using Form 843. H and r block military In general, U. H and r block military S. H and r block military social security and Medicare taxes apply to payments of wages for services performed as an employee in the United States, regardless of the citizenship or residence of either the employee or the employer. H and r block military In limited situations, these taxes apply to wages for services performed outside the United States. H and r block military Your employer should be able to tell you if social security and Medicare taxes apply to your wages. H and r block military You cannot make voluntary payments if no taxes are due. H and r block military Additional Medicare Tax.

H and r block military   Your employer is responsible for withholding the 0. H and r block military 9% Additional Medicare Tax on Medicare wages or RRTA compensation it pays to you in excess of $200,000 in the calendar year. H and r block military If you intend to file a joint return and you anticipate that you and your spouse's individual wages are not going to be more than $200,000 but your combined wages and self-employment income are going to be more than $250,000, you may want to request additional withholding on Form W-4 and/or make estimated tax payments.

H and r block military Self-Employment Tax Self-employment tax is the social security and Medicare taxes for individuals who are self-employed. H and r block military Nonresident aliens are not subject to self-employment tax unless an international social security agreement in effect determines that they are covered under the U. H and r block military S. H and r block military social security system. H and r block military Residents of the U. H and r block military S. H and r block military Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, or American Samoa are considered U. H and r block military S. H and r block military residents for this purpose and are subject to the self-employment tax. H and r block military Resident aliens must pay self-employment tax under the same rules that apply to U. H and r block military S. H and r block military citizens. H and r block military However, a resident alien employed by an international organization, a foreign government, or a wholly-owned instrumentality of a foreign government is not subject to the self-employment tax on income earned in the United States. H and r block military Self-employment income you receive while you are a resident alien is subject to self-employment tax even if it was paid for services you performed as a nonresident alien. H and r block military Example. H and r block military Bill Jones is an author engaged in the business of writing books. H and r block military Bill had several books published in a foreign country while he was a citizen and resident of that country. H and r block military During 2013, Bill entered the United States as a resident alien. H and r block military After becoming a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military resident, he continued to receive royalties from his foreign publisher. H and r block military Bill reports his income and expenses on the cash basis (he reports income on his tax return when received and deducts expenses when paid). H and r block military Bill's 2013 self-employment income includes the royalties received after he became a U. H and r block military S. H and r block military resident even though the books were published while he was a nonresident alien. H and r block military This royalty income is subject to self-employment tax. H and r block military Reporting self-employment tax. H and r block military   Use Schedule SE (Form 1040) to report and figure your self-employment tax. H and r block military Then enter the tax on Form 1040, line 56, or Form 1040NR, line 54. H and r block military Attach Schedule SE to Form 1040 or Form 1040NR. H and r block military Additional Medicare Tax. H and r block military   Self-employed individuals must pay a 0. H and r block military 9% Additional Medicare Tax on self-employment income that exceeds one of the following threshold amounts (based on your filing status): Married filing jointly — $250,000; Married filing separately — $125,000; Single, Head of household, or Qualifying widow(er) — $200,000. H and r block military   If you have both wages and self-employment income, the threshold amount for applying the Additional Medicare Tax on the self-employment income is reduced (but not below zero) by the amount of wages subject to Additional Medicare Tax. H and r block military A self-employment loss should not be considered for purposes of this tax   If you file Form 1040NR, you must pay Additional Medicare Tax if the total of your wages and your self-employment income was more than $125,000 if married (Box 3, 4, or 5 on page 1 of Form 1040NR), or $200,000 if single or qualifying widow(er) (Box 1, 2, or 6 on page 1 of Form 1040NR). H and r block military   See Form 8959, Additional Medicare Tax, and the Instructions for Form 8959 to determine whether you are required to pay Additional Medicare Tax. H and r block military For more information on Additional Medicare Tax, go to IRS. H and r block military gov and enter “Additional Medicare Tax” in the search box. H and r block military Deduction for employer-equivalent portion of self-employment tax. H and r block military   If you must pay self-employment tax, you can deduct a portion of the self-employment tax paid in figuring your adjusted gross income. H and r block military This deduction is figured on Schedule SE (Form 1040). H and r block military Note. H and r block military No portion of the Additional Medicare Tax is deductible for self-employment tax. H and r block military More information. H and r block military   Get Publication 334, Tax Guide for Small Business, for more information about self-employment tax. H and r block military International Social Security Agreements The United States has entered into social security agreements with foreign countries to coordinate social security coverage and taxation of workers employed for part or all of their working careers in one of the countries. H and r block military These agreements are commonly referred to as totalization agreements. H and r block military Under these agreements, dual coverage and dual contributions (taxes) for the same work are eliminated. H and r block military The agreements generally make sure that social security taxes (including self-employment tax) are paid only to one country. H and r block military Agreements are in effect with the following countries. H and r block military Australia. H and r block military Austria. H and r block military Belgium. H and r block military Canada. H and r block military Chile. H and r block military Czech Republic. H and r block military Denmark. H and r block military Finland. H and r block military France. H and r block military Germany. H and r block military Greece. H and r block military Ireland. H and r block military Italy. H and r block military Japan. H and r block military Korea, South.

H and r block military Sweden. H and r block military Switzerland. H and r block military The United Kingdom. H and r block military Agreements with other countries are expected to enter into force in the future. H and r block military Employees. H and r block military   Generally, under these agreements, you are subject to social security taxes only in the country where you are working. H and r block military However, if you are temporarily sent to work for the same employer in the United States and your pay would normally be subject to social security taxes in both countries, most agreements provide that you remain covered only by the social security system of the country from which you were sent. H and r block military You can get more information on any agreement by contacting the U. H and r block military S. H and r block military Social Security Administration at the address given later. H and r block military If you have access to the Internet, you can get more information at www. H and r block military socialsecurity. H and r block military gov/international. H and r block military   To establish that your pay is subject only to foreign social security taxes and is exempt from U. H and r block military S. H and r block military social security taxes (including the Medicare tax) under an agreement, you or your employer should request a certificate of coverage from the appropriate agency of the foreign country. H and r block military This will usually be the same agency to which you or your employer pays your foreign social security taxes. H and r block military The foreign agency will be able to tell you what information is needed for them to issue the certificate.
