H&r block coupons 2012 printable Married Filing Separately You can choose married filing separately as your filing status if you are married.

H&r block coupons 2012 printable When figuring the combined tax of a married couple, you may want to consider state taxes as well as federal taxes. H&r block coupons 2012 printable How to file.

H&r block coupons 2012 printable You can claim an exemption for your spouse only if your spouse had no gross income, is not filing a return, and was not the dependent of another person. H&r block coupons 2012 printable   You can file Form 1040. H&r block coupons 2012 printable If your taxable income is less than $100,000, you may be able to file Form 1040A.

H&r block coupons 2012 printable If your spouse itemizes deductions, you cannot claim the standard deduction. H&r block coupons 2012 printable If you can claim the standard deduction, your basic standard deduction is half the amount allowed on a joint return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Adjusted gross income (AGI) limits. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    If your AGI on a separate return is lower than it would have been on a joint return, you may be able to deduct a larger amount for certain deductions that are limited by AGI, such as medical expenses. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Individual retirement arrangements (IRAs). H&r block coupons 2012 printable    You may not be able to deduct all or part of your contributions to a traditional IRA if you or your spouse were covered by an employee retirement plan at work during the year.

H&r block coupons 2012 printable This is called a special allowance. H&r block coupons 2012 printable However, married persons filing separate returns who lived together at any time during the year cannot claim this special allowance. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Married persons filing separate returns who lived apart at all times during the year are each allowed a $12,500 maximum special allowance for losses from passive real estate activities.

H&r block coupons 2012 printable As a result, he is not your qualifying person for head of household purposes. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Home of qualifying person. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    Generally, the qualifying person must live with you for more than half of the year. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Special rule for parent. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    If your qualifying person is your father or mother, you may be eligible to file as head of household even if your father or mother does not live with you. H&r block coupons 2012 printable However, you must be able to claim an exemption for your father or mother. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Also, you must pay more than half the cost of keeping up a home that was the main home for the entire year for your father or mother. H&r block coupons 2012 printable   You are keeping up a main home for your father or mother if you pay more than half the cost of keeping your parent in a rest home or home for the elderly. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Death or birth. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    You may be eligible to file as head of household even if the qualifying person who qualifies you for this filing status is born or dies during the year. H&r block coupons 2012 printable To qualify you for head of household filing status, the qualifying person (as defined in Table 4) must be one of the following. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Your qualifying child or qualifying relative who lived with you for more than half the part of the year he or she was alive. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Your parent for whom you paid, for the entire part of the year he or she was alive, more than half the cost of keeping up the home he or she lived in. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Example. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You are unmarried. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Your mother, for whom you can claim an exemption, lived in an apartment by herself. H&r block coupons 2012 printable She died on September 2. H&r block coupons 2012 printable The cost of the upkeep of her apartment for the year until her death was $6,000. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You paid $4,000 and your brother paid $2,000. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Your brother made no other payments towards your mother's support. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Your mother had no income. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Because you paid more than half of the cost of keeping up your mother's apartment from January 1 until her death, and you can claim an exemption for her, you can file as a head of household. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Temporary absences. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    You and your qualifying person are considered to live together even if one or both of you are temporarily absent from your home due to special circumstances such as illness, education, business, vacation, or military service. H&r block coupons 2012 printable It must be reasonable to assume the absent person will return to the home after the temporary absence. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You must continue to keep up the home during the absence. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Kidnapped child. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    You may be eligible to file as head of household even if the child who is your qualifying person has been kidnapped. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You can claim head of household filing status if all the following statements are true. H&r block coupons 2012 printable The child is presumed by law enforcement authorities to have been kidnapped by someone who is not a member of your family or the child's family. H&r block coupons 2012 printable In the year of the kidnapping, the child lived with you for more than half the part of the year before the kidnapping. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You would have qualified for head of household filing status if the child had not been kidnapped. H&r block coupons 2012 printable   This treatment applies for all years until the earliest of: The year the child is returned, The year there is a determination that the child is dead, or The year the child would have reached age 18. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Qualifying Widow(er) With Dependent Child If your spouse died in 2013, you can use married filing jointly as your filing status for 2013 if you otherwise qualify to use that status. H&r block coupons 2012 printable The year of death is the last year for which you can file jointly with your deceased spouse. H&r block coupons 2012 printable See Married Filing Jointly , earlier. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You may be eligible to use qualifying widow(er) with dependent child as your filing status for 2 years following the year your spouse died. H&r block coupons 2012 printable For example, if your spouse died in 2012 and you have not remarried, you may be able to use this filing status for 2013 and 2014. H&r block coupons 2012 printable The rules for using this filing status are explained in detail here. H&r block coupons 2012 printable This filing status entitles you to use joint return tax rates and the highest standard deduction amount (if you do not itemize deductions). H&r block coupons 2012 printable It does not entitle you to file a joint return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable How to file. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    If you file as a qualifying widow(er) with dependent child, you can use Form 1040. H&r block coupons 2012 printable If you also have taxable income of less than $100,000 and meet certain other conditions, you may be able to file Form 1040A. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Check the box on line 5 of either form. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Use the Married filing jointly column of the Tax Table or Section B of the Tax Computation Worksheet to figure your tax. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Table 4. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Who Is a Qualifying Person Qualifying You To File as Head of Household?1 See the text of this publication for the other requirements you must meet to claim head of household filing status.

H&r block coupons 2012 printable   you cannot claim an exemption for him or her   not a qualifying person. H&r block coupons 2012 printable 1 A person cannot qualify more than one taxpayer to use the head of household filing status for the year. H&r block coupons 2012 printable 2 The term “qualifying child” is defined under Exemptions for Dependents, later. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Note: If you are a noncustodial parent, the term “qualifying child” for head of household filing status does not include a child who is your qualifying child for exemption purposes only because of the rules described under Children of divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart) under Qualifying Child, later. H&r block coupons 2012 printable If you are the custodial parent and those rules apply, the child generally is your qualifying child for head of household filing status even though the child is not a qualifying child for whom you can claim an exemption. H&r block coupons 2012 printable 3 This person is a qualifying person if the only reason you cannot claim the exemption is that you can be claimed as a dependent on someone else's return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable 4 The term “qualifying relative” is defined under Exemptions for Dependents, later. H&r block coupons 2012 printable 5 If you can claim an exemption for a person only because of a multiple support agreement, that person is not a qualifying person. H&r block coupons 2012 printable See Multiple Support Agreement . H&r block coupons 2012 printable 6 See Special rule for parent . H&r block coupons 2012 printable Eligibility rules. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    You are eligible to file your 2013 return as a qualifying widow(er) with dependent child if you meet all the following tests. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You were entitled to file a joint return with your spouse for the year your spouse died. H&r block coupons 2012 printable It does not matter whether you actually filed a joint return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Your spouse died in 2011 or 2012 and you did not remarry before the end of 2013. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You have a child or stepchild for whom you can claim an exemption. H&r block coupons 2012 printable This does not include a foster child. H&r block coupons 2012 printable This child lived in your home all year, except for temporary absences. H&r block coupons 2012 printable See Temporary absences , earlier, under Head of Household. H&r block coupons 2012 printable There are also exceptions, described later, for a child who was born or died during the year and for a kidnapped child. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You paid more than half the cost of keeping up a home for the year. H&r block coupons 2012 printable See Keeping Up a Home , earlier, under Head of Household. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Example. H&r block coupons 2012 printable John's wife died in 2011. H&r block coupons 2012 printable John has not remarried. H&r block coupons 2012 printable He has continued during 2012 and 2013 to keep up a home for himself and his child, who lives with him and for whom he can claim an exemption. H&r block coupons 2012 printable For 2011 he was entitled to file a joint return for himself and his deceased wife. H&r block coupons 2012 printable For 2012 and 2013, he can file as a qualifying widower with a dependent child. H&r block coupons 2012 printable After 2013, he can file as head of household if he qualifies. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Death or birth. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    You may be eligible to file as a qualifying widow(er) with dependent child if the child who qualifies you for this filing status is born or dies during the year. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You must have provided more than half of the cost of keeping up a home that was the child's main home during the entire part of the year he or she was alive. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Kidnapped child. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    You may be eligible to file as a qualifying widow(er) with dependent child even if the child who qualifies you for this filing status has been kidnapped. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You can claim qualifying widow(er) with dependent child filing status if all the following statements are true. H&r block coupons 2012 printable The child is presumed by law enforcement authorities to have been kidnapped by someone who is not a member of your family or the child's family. H&r block coupons 2012 printable In the year of the kidnapping, the child lived with you for more than half the part of the year before the kidnapping. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You would have qualified for qualifying widow(er) with dependent child filing status if the child had not been kidnapped. H&r block coupons 2012 printable As mentioned earlier, this filing status is available for only 2 years following the year your spouse died. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Exemptions Exemptions reduce your taxable income. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You can deduct $3,900 for each exemption you claim in 2013. H&r block coupons 2012 printable If you are entitled to two exemptions for 2013, you can deduct $7,800 ($3,900 × 2). H&r block coupons 2012 printable But you may lose the benefit of part or all of your exemptions if your adjusted gross income is above a certain amount. H&r block coupons 2012 printable See Phaseout of Exemptions , later. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Types of exemptions. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    There are two types of exemptions you may be able to take: Personal exemptions for yourself and your spouse, and Exemptions for dependents (dependency exemptions). H&r block coupons 2012 printable While each is worth the same amount ($3,900 for 2013), different rules, discussed later, apply to each type. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Dependent cannot claim a personal exemption. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    If you are entitled to claim an exemption for a dependent (such as your child), that dependent cannot claim a personal exemption on his or her own tax return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable How to claim exemptions. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    How you claim an exemption on your tax return depends on which form you file. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Form 1040EZ filers. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    If you file Form 1040EZ, the exemption amount is combined with the standard deduction and entered on line 5. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Form 1040A filers. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    If you file Form 1040A, complete lines 6a through 6d. H&r block coupons 2012 printable The total number of exemptions you can claim is the total in the box on line 6d. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Also complete line 26. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Form 1040 filers. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    If you file Form 1040, complete lines 6a through 6d.

H&r block coupons 2012 printable If your adjusted gross income is more than $150,000, see Phaseout of Exemptions , later. H&r block coupons 2012 printable U. H&r block coupons 2012 printable S. H&r block coupons 2012 printable citizen or resident alien. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    If you are a U. H&r block coupons 2012 printable S. H&r block coupons 2012 printable citizen, U. H&r block coupons 2012 printable S. H&r block coupons 2012 printable resident alien, U. H&r block coupons 2012 printable S. H&r block coupons 2012 printable national (defined later) or a resident of Canada or Mexico, you may qualify for any of the exemptions discussed here. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Nonresident aliens. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    Generally, if you are a nonresident alien (other than a resident of Canada or Mexico, or certain residents of India or Korea), you can qualify for only one personal exemption for yourself. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You cannot claim exemptions for a spouse or dependents. H&r block coupons 2012 printable   These restrictions do not apply if you are a nonresident alien married to a U. H&r block coupons 2012 printable S. H&r block coupons 2012 printable citizen or resident alien and have chosen to be treated as a resident of the United States. H&r block coupons 2012 printable More information. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    For more information on exemptions if you are a nonresident alien, see chapter 5 in Publication 519. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Dual-status taxpayers. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    If you have been both a nonresident alien and a resident alien in the same tax year, you should see Publication 519 for information on determining your exemptions. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Personal Exemptions You are generally allowed one exemption for yourself. H&r block coupons 2012 printable If you are married, you may be allowed one exemption for your spouse. H&r block coupons 2012 printable These are called personal exemptions. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Your Own Exemption You can take one exemption for yourself unless you can be claimed as a dependent by another taxpayer. H&r block coupons 2012 printable If another taxpayer is entitled to claim you as a dependent, you cannot take an exemption for yourself even if the other taxpayer does not actually claim you as a dependent. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Your Spouse's Exemption Your spouse is never considered your dependent. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Joint return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    On a joint return, you can claim one exemption for yourself and one for your spouse. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Separate return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    If you file a separate return, you can claim an exemption for your spouse only if your spouse had no gross income, is not filing a return, and was not the dependent of another taxpayer. H&r block coupons 2012 printable This is true even if the other taxpayer does not actually claim your spouse as a dependent. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You can claim an exemption for your spouse even if he or she is a nonresident alien; in that case, your spouse must have no gross income for U. H&r block coupons 2012 printable S. H&r block coupons 2012 printable tax purposes and satisfy the other conditions listed above. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Head of household. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    If you qualify for head of household filing status because you are considered unmarried, you can claim an exemption for your spouse if the conditions described in the preceding paragraph are satisfied. H&r block coupons 2012 printable   To claim the exemption for your spouse, check the box on line 6b of Form 1040 or Form 1040A and enter the name of your spouse in the space to the right of the box. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Enter the SSN or ITIN of your spouse in the space provided at the top of Form 1040 or Form 1040A. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Death of spouse. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    If your spouse died during the year and you file a joint return for yourself and your deceased spouse, you generally can claim your spouse's exemption under the rules just explained in Joint return . H&r block coupons 2012 printable If you file a separate return for the year, you may be able to claim your spouse's exemption under the rules just described in Separate return . H&r block coupons 2012 printable   If you remarried during the year, you cannot take an exemption for your deceased spouse. H&r block coupons 2012 printable   If you are a surviving spouse without gross income and you remarry in the year your spouse died, you can be claimed as an exemption on both the final separate return of your deceased spouse and the separate return of your new spouse for that year. H&r block coupons 2012 printable If you file a joint return with your new spouse, you can be claimed as an exemption only on that return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Divorced or separated spouse. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    If you obtained a final decree of divorce or separate maintenance during the year, you cannot take your former spouse's exemption. H&r block coupons 2012 printable This rule applies even if you provided all of your former spouse's support. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Exemptions for Dependents You are allowed one exemption for each person you can claim as a dependent. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You can claim an exemption for a dependent even if your dependent files a return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable The term “dependent” means: A qualifying child, or A qualifying relative. H&r block coupons 2012 printable The terms “ qualifying child ” and “ qualifying relative ” are defined later. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You can claim an exemption for a qualifying child or qualifying relative only if these three tests are met. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Dependent taxpayer test. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Joint return test. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Citizen or resident test. H&r block coupons 2012 printable These three tests are explained in detail later. H&r block coupons 2012 printable All the requirements for claiming an exemption for a dependent are summarized in Table 5. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Table 5. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Overview of the Rules for Claiming an Exemption for a Dependent This table is only an overview of the rules. H&r block coupons 2012 printable For details, see the rest of this publication. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You cannot claim any dependents if you, or your spouse if filing jointly, could be claimed as a dependent by another taxpayer. H&r block coupons 2012 printable   You cannot claim a married person who files a joint return as a dependent unless that joint return is filed only to claim a refund of withheld income tax or estimated tax paid. H&r block coupons 2012 printable   You cannot claim a person as a dependent unless that person is a U. H&r block coupons 2012 printable S. H&r block coupons 2012 printable citizen, U. H&r block coupons 2012 printable S. H&r block coupons 2012 printable resident alien, U. H&r block coupons 2012 printable S. H&r block coupons 2012 printable national, or a resident of Canada or Mexico. H&r block coupons 2012 printable 1  You cannot claim a person as a dependent unless that person is your qualifying child or qualifying relative. H&r block coupons 2012 printable   Tests To Be a Qualifying Child Tests To Be a Qualifying Relative The child must be your son, daughter, stepchild, foster child, brother, sister, half brother, half sister, stepbrother, stepsister, or a descendant of any of them. H&r block coupons 2012 printable   The child must be (a) under age 19 at the end of the year and younger than you (or your spouse if filing jointly), (b) under age 24 at the end of the year, a student, and younger than you (or your spouse if filing jointly), or (c) any age if permanently and totally disabled. H&r block coupons 2012 printable   The child must have lived with you for more than half of the year. H&r block coupons 2012 printable 2  The child must not have provided more than half of his or her own support for the year. H&r block coupons 2012 printable   The child is not filing a joint return for the year (unless that joint return is filed only to claim a refund of withheld income tax or estimated tax paid). H&r block coupons 2012 printable  If the child meets the rules to be a qualifying child of more than one person, only one person can actually treat the child as a qualifying child. H&r block coupons 2012 printable See the Special Rule for Qualifying Child of More Than One Person described later to find out which person is the person entitled to claim the child as a qualifying child. H&r block coupons 2012 printable The person cannot be your qualifying child or the qualifying child of any other taxpayer. H&r block coupons 2012 printable   The person either (a) must be related to you in one of the ways listed under Relatives who do not have to live with you , or (b) must live with you all year as a member of your household2 (and your relationship must not violate local law). H&r block coupons 2012 printable   The person's gross income for the year must be less than $3,900. H&r block coupons 2012 printable 3  You must provide more than half of the person's total support for the year. H&r block coupons 2012 printable 4  1 There is an exception for certain adopted children. H&r block coupons 2012 printable 2 There are exceptions for temporary absences, children who were born or died during the year, children of divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart), and kidnapped children. H&r block coupons 2012 printable 3 There is an exception if the person is disabled and has income from a sheltered workshop. H&r block coupons 2012 printable 4 There are exceptions for multiple support agreements, children of divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart), and kidnapped children. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Dependent not allowed a personal exemption. H&r block coupons 2012 printable If you can claim an exemption for your dependent, the dependent cannot claim his or her own personal exemption on his or her own tax return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable This is true even if you do not claim the dependent's exemption on your return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable It is also true if the dependent's exemption on your return is reduced or eliminated under the phaseout rule described under Phaseout of Exemptions, later. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Housekeepers, maids, or servants. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    If these people work for you, you cannot claim exemptions for them. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Child tax credit. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    You may be entitled to a child tax credit for each qualifying child who was under age 17 at the end of the year if you claimed an exemption for that child. H&r block coupons 2012 printable For more information, see the instructions for the tax form you file (Form 1040 or 1040A). H&r block coupons 2012 printable Dependent Taxpayer Test If you can be claimed as a dependent by another person, you cannot claim anyone else as a dependent. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Even if you have a qualifying child or qualifying relative, you cannot claim that person as a dependent. H&r block coupons 2012 printable If you are filing a joint return and your spouse can be claimed as a dependent by someone else, you and your spouse cannot claim any dependents on your joint return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Joint Return Test You generally cannot claim a married person as a dependent if he or she files a joint return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Exception. H&r block coupons 2012 printable    You can claim an exemption for a person who files a joint return if that person and his or her spouse file the joint return only to claim a refund of income tax withheld or estimated tax paid. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Example 1—child files joint return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You supported your 18-year-old daughter, and she lived with you all year while her husband was in the Armed Forces. H&r block coupons 2012 printable He earned $25,000 for the year. H&r block coupons 2012 printable The couple files a joint return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You cannot take an exemption for your daughter. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Example 2—child files joint return only as claim for refund of withheld tax. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Your 18-year-old son and his 17-year-old wife had $800 of wages from part-time jobs and no other income. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Neither is required to file a tax return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable They do not have a child. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Taxes were taken out of their pay so they file a joint return only to get a refund of the withheld taxes. H&r block coupons 2012 printable The exception to the joint return test applies, so you are not disqualified from claiming an exemption for each of them just because they file a joint return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable You can claim exemptions for each of them if all the other tests to do so are met. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Example 3—child files joint return to claim American opportunity credit. H&r block coupons 2012 printable The facts are the same as in Example 2 except no taxes were taken out of your son's pay. H&r block coupons 2012 printable He and his wife are not required to file a tax return. H&r block coupons 2012 printable However, they file a joint return to claim an American opportunity credit of $124 and get a refund of that amount. H&r block coupons 2012 printable Because claiming the American opportunity credit is their reason for filing the return, they are not filing it only to get a refund of income

Introduction

Treasury Decision (T.D.) 9363 requires corporations that have assets of $10 million or more and file at least 250 returns annually to electronically file their Forms 1120 and 1120S for tax years ending on or after December 31, 2007. This requirement extends to foreign corporations filing Form 1120-F who have tax years ending on or after December 31, 2008, have assets of $10 million or more and who file at least 250 returns annually.

Although electronic filing is required of certain corporations, many corporations voluntarily file their returns electronically.

This web site provides an overview of electronic filing and more detailed information for those corporations required to e-file. There is information for taxpayers who prepare and transmit their own income tax returns as well as for taxpayers who rely upon third party tax professionals to prepare and transmit their tax returns.
