Hr block taxes online They are commonly called the social security equivalent benefit (SSEB) portion of tier 1 benefits. Hr block taxes online If you received these benefits during 2013, you should have received a Form SSA-1099, Social Security Benefit Statement, or Form RRB-1099, Payments by the Railroad Retirement Board. Hr block taxes online These forms show the amounts received and repaid, and taxes withheld for the year. Hr block taxes online You may receive more than one of these forms for the same year. Hr block taxes online You should add the amounts shown on all the Forms SSA-1099 and Forms RRB-1099 you receive for the year to determine the total amounts received and repaid, and taxes withheld for that year. Hr block taxes online See the Appendix at the end of Publication 915 for more information. Hr block taxes online Note.

To find out whether any of your benefits may be taxable, compare the base amount for your filing status with the total of: One-half of your benefits, plus All your other income, including tax-exempt interest. Hr block taxes online When making this comparison, do not reduce your other income by any exclusions for: Interest from qualified U. Hr block taxes online S. Hr block taxes online savings bonds, Employer-provided adoption benefits, Foreign earned income or foreign housing, or Income earned by bona fide residents of American Samoa or Puerto Rico. Hr block taxes online Children's benefits. Hr block taxes online   The rules in this chapter apply to benefits received by children. Hr block taxes online See Who is taxed , later. Hr block taxes online Figuring total income. Hr block taxes online   To figure the total of one-half of your benefits plus your other income, use Worksheet 11-1 later in this discussion. Hr block taxes online If the total is more than your base amount, part of your benefits may be taxable. Hr block taxes online    If you are married and file a joint return for 2013, you and your spouse must combine your incomes and your benefits to figure whether any of your combined benefits are taxable. Hr block taxes online Even if your spouse did not receive any benefits, you must add your spouse's income to yours to figure whether any of your benefits are taxable. Hr block taxes online    If the only income you received during 2013 was your social security or the SSEB portion of tier 1 railroad retirement benefits, your benefits generally are not taxable and you probably do not have to file a return. Hr block taxes online If you have income in addition to your benefits, you may have to file a return even if none of your benefits are taxable. Hr block taxes online Base amount. Hr block taxes online   Your base amount is: $25,000 if you are single, head of household, or qualifying widow(er), $25,000 if you are married filing separately and lived apart from your spouse for all of 2013, $32,000 if you are married filing jointly, or $-0- if you are married filing separately and lived with your spouse at any time during 2013. Hr block taxes online Worksheet 11-1. Hr block taxes online   You can use Worksheet 11-1 to figure the amount of income to compare with your base amount. Hr block taxes online This is a quick way to check whether some of your benefits may be taxable. Hr block taxes online Worksheet 11-1. Hr block taxes online A Quick Way To Check if Your Benefits May Be Taxable A. Hr block taxes online Enter the amount from box 5 of all your Forms SSA-1099 and RRB-1099. Hr block taxes online Include the full amount of any lump-sum benefit payments received in 2013, for 2013 and earlier years. Hr block taxes online (If you received more than one form, combine the amounts from box 5 and enter the total. Hr block taxes online ) A. Hr block taxes online   Note. Hr block taxes online If the amount on line A is zero or less, stop here; none of your benefits are taxable this year. Hr block taxes online B. Hr block taxes online Enter one-half of the amount on line A B. Hr block taxes online   C. Hr block taxes online Enter your taxable pensions, wages, interest, dividends, and other taxable income C. Hr block taxes online   D. Hr block taxes online Enter any tax-exempt interest income (such as interest on municipal bonds) plus any exclusions from income (listed earlier) D. Hr block taxes online   E. Hr block taxes online Add lines B, C, and D E. Hr block taxes online   Note. Hr block taxes online Compare the amount on line E to your base amount for your filing status. Hr block taxes online If the amount on line E equals or is less than the base amount for your filing status, none of your benefits are taxable this year. Hr block taxes online If the amount on line E is more than your base amount, some of your benefits may be taxable. Hr block taxes online You need to complete Worksheet 1 in Publication 915 (or the Social Security Benefits Worksheet in your tax form instructions). Hr block taxes online If none of your benefits are taxable, but you otherwise must file a tax return, see Benefits not taxable , later, under How To Report Your Benefits. Hr block taxes online Example. Hr block taxes online You and your spouse (both over 65) are filing a joint return for 2013 and you both received social security benefits during the year. Hr block taxes online In January 2014, you received a Form SSA-1099 showing net benefits of $7,500 in box 5. Hr block taxes online Your spouse received a Form SSA-1099 showing net benefits of $3,500 in box 5. Hr block taxes online You also received a taxable pension of $22,800 and interest income of $500. Hr block taxes online You did not have any tax-exempt interest income. Hr block taxes online Your benefits are not taxable for 2013 because your income, as figured in Worksheet 11-1, is not more than your base amount ($32,000) for married filing jointly. Hr block taxes online Even though none of your benefits are taxable, you must file a return for 2013 because your taxable gross income ($23,300) exceeds the minimum filing requirement amount for your filing status. Hr block taxes online Filled-in Worksheet 11-1. Hr block taxes online A Quick Way To Check if Your Benefits May Be Taxable A. Hr block taxes online Enter the amount from box 5 of all your Forms SSA-1099 and RRB-1099. Hr block taxes online Include the full amount of any lump-sum benefit payments received in 2013, for 2013 and earlier years. Hr block taxes online (If you received more than one form, combine the amounts from box 5 and enter the total. Hr block taxes online ) A. Hr block taxes online $11,000 Note. Hr block taxes online If the amount on line A is zero or less, stop here; none of your benefits are taxable this year. Hr block taxes online B. Hr block taxes online Enter one-half of the amount on line A B. Hr block taxes online 5,500 C. Hr block taxes online Enter your taxable pensions, wages, interest, dividends, and other taxable income C. Hr block taxes online 23,300 D. Hr block taxes online Enter any tax-exempt interest income (such as interest on municipal bonds) plus any exclusions from income (listed earlier) D. Hr block taxes online -0- E. Hr block taxes online Add lines B, C, and D E. Hr block taxes online $28,800 Note. Hr block taxes online Compare the amount on line E to your base amount for your filing status. Hr block taxes online If the amount on line E equals or is less than the base amount for your filing status, none of your benefits are taxable this year. Hr block taxes online If the amount on line E is more than your base amount, some of your benefits may be taxable. Hr block taxes online You need to complete Worksheet 1 in Publication 915 (or the Social Security Benefits Worksheet in your tax form instructions). Hr block taxes online If none of your benefits are taxable, but you otherwise must file a tax return, see Benefits not taxable , later, under How To Report Your Benefits. Hr block taxes online Who is taxed. Hr block taxes online   Benefits are included in the taxable income (to the extent they are taxable) of the person who has the legal right to receive the benefits. Hr block taxes online For example, if you and your child receive benefits, but the check for your child is made out in your name, you must use only your part of the benefits to see whether any benefits are taxable to you. Hr block taxes online One-half of the part that belongs to your child must be added to your child's other income to see whether any of those benefits are taxable to your child. Hr block taxes online Repayment of benefits. Hr block taxes online   Any repayment of benefits you made during 2013 must be subtracted from the gross benefits you received in 2013. Hr block taxes online It does not matter whether the repayment was for a benefit you received in 2013 or in an earlier year. Hr block taxes online If you repaid more than the gross benefits you received in 2013, see Repayments More Than Gross Benefits , later. Hr block taxes online   Your gross benefits are shown in box 3 of Form SSA-1099 or RRB-1099. Hr block taxes online Your repayments are shown in box 4. Hr block taxes online The amount in box 5 shows your net benefits for 2013 (box 3 minus box 4). Hr block taxes online Use the amount in box 5 to figure whether any of your benefits are taxable. Hr block taxes online Tax withholding and estimated tax. Hr block taxes online   You can choose to have federal income tax withheld from your social security benefits and/or the SSEB portion of your tier 1 railroad retirement benefits. Hr block taxes online If you choose to do this, you must complete a Form W-4V. Hr block taxes online   If you do not choose to have income tax withheld, you may have to request additional withholding from other income or pay estimated tax during the year. Hr block taxes online For details, see Publication 505 or the instructions for Form 1040-ES. Hr block taxes online How To Report Your Benefits If part of your benefits are taxable, you must use Form 1040 or Form 1040A. Hr block taxes online You cannot use Form 1040EZ. Hr block taxes online Reporting on Form 1040. Hr block taxes online   Report your net benefits (the total amount from box 5 of all your Forms SSA-1099 and Forms RRB-1099) on line 20a and the taxable part on line 20b. Hr block taxes online If you are married filing separately and you lived apart from your spouse for all of 2013, also enter “D” to the right of the word “benefits” on line 20a. Hr block taxes online Reporting on Form 1040A. Hr block taxes online   Report your net benefits (the total amount from box 5 of all your Forms SSA-1099 and Forms RRB-1099) on line 14a and the taxable part on line 14b. Hr block taxes online If you are married filing separately and you lived apart from your spouse for all of 2013, also enter “D” to the right of the word “benefits” on line 14a. Hr block taxes online Benefits not taxable. Hr block taxes online   If you are filing Form 1040EZ, do not report any benefits on your tax return. Hr block taxes online If you are filing Form 1040 or Form 1040A, report your net benefits (the total amount from box 5 of all your Forms SSA-1099 and Forms RRB-1099) on Form 1040, line 20a, or Form 1040A, line 14a. Hr block taxes online Enter -0- on Form 1040, line 20b, or Form 1040A, line 14b. Hr block taxes online If you are married filing separately and you lived apart from your spouse for all of 2013, also enter “D” to the right of the word “benefits” on Form 1040, line 20a, or Form 1040A, line 14a. Hr block taxes online How Much Is Taxable? If part of your benefits are taxable, how much is taxable depends on the total amount of your benefits and other income. Hr block taxes online Generally, the higher that total amount, the greater the taxable part of your benefits. Hr block taxes online Maximum taxable part. Hr block taxes online   Generally, up to 50% of your benefits will be taxable. Hr block taxes online However, up to 85% of your benefits can be taxable if either of the following situations applies to you. Hr block taxes online The total of one-half of your benefits and all your other income is more than $34,000 ($44,000 if you are married filing jointly). Hr block taxes online You are married filing separately and lived with your spouse at any time during 2013. Hr block taxes online Which worksheet to use. Hr block taxes online   A worksheet you can use to figure your taxable benefits is in the instructions for your Form 1040 or Form 1040A. Hr block taxes online You can use either that worksheet or Worksheet 1 in Publication 915, unless any of the following situations applies to you. Hr block taxes online You contributed to a traditional individual retirement arrangement (IRA) and you or your spouse is covered by a retirement plan at work. Hr block taxes online In this situation, you must use the special worksheets in Appendix B of Publication 590 to figure both your IRA deduction and your taxable benefits. Hr block taxes online Situation (1) does not apply and you take an exclusion for interest from qualified U. Hr block taxes online S. Hr block taxes online savings bonds (Form 8815), for adoption benefits (Form 8839), for foreign earned income or housing (Form 2555 or Form 2555-EZ), or for income earned in American Samoa (Form 4563) or Puerto Rico by bona fide residents. Hr block taxes online In this situation, you must use Worksheet 1 in Publication 915 to figure your taxable benefits. Hr block taxes online You received a lump-sum payment for an earlier year. Hr block taxes online In this situation, also complete Worksheet 2 or 3 and Worksheet 4 in Publication 915. Hr block taxes online See Lump-sum election next. Hr block taxes online Lump-sum election. Hr block taxes online   You must include the taxable part of a lump-sum (retroactive) payment of benefits received in 2013 in your 2013 income, even if the payment includes benefits for an earlier year. Hr block taxes online    This type of lump-sum benefit payment should not be confused with the lump-sum death benefit that both the SSA and RRB pay to many of their beneficiaries. Hr block taxes online No part of the lump-sum death benefit is subject to tax. Hr block taxes online   Generally, you use your 2013 income to figure the taxable part of the total benefits received in 2013. Hr block taxes online However, you may be able to figure the taxable part of a lump-sum payment for an earlier year separately, using your income for the earlier year. Hr block taxes online You can elect this method if it lowers your taxable benefits. Hr block taxes online Making the election. Hr block taxes online   If you received a lump-sum benefit payment in 2013 that includes benefits for one or more earlier years, follow the instructions in Publication 915 under Lump-Sum Election to see whether making the election will lower your taxable benefits. Hr block taxes online That discussion also explains how to make the election. Hr block taxes online    Because the earlier year's taxable benefits are included in your 2013 income, no adjustment is made to the earlier year's return. Hr block taxes online Do not file an amended return for the earlier year. Hr block taxes online Examples The following are a few examples you can use as a guide to figure the taxable part of your benefits. Hr block taxes online Example 1. Hr block taxes online George White is single and files Form 1040 for 2013.

Hr block taxes online If you received a lump-sum payment from SSA or RRB, and you had to repay the employer or insurance company for the disability payments, you can take an itemized deduction for the part of the payments you included in gross income in the earlier year. Hr block taxes online If the amount you repay is more than $3,000, you may be able to claim a tax credit instead. Hr block taxes online Claim the deduction or credit in the same way explained under Repayments More Than Gross Benefits , later. Hr block taxes online Legal expenses. Hr block taxes online   You can usually deduct legal expenses that you pay or incur to produce or collect taxable income or in connection with the determination, collection, or refund of any tax. Hr block taxes online   Legal expenses for collecting the taxable part of your benefits are deductible as a miscellaneous itemized deduction on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 23. Hr block taxes online Repayments More Than Gross Benefits In some situations, your Form SSA-1099 or Form RRB-1099 will show that the total benefits you repaid (box 4) are more than the gross benefits (box 3) you received. Hr block taxes online If this occurred, your net benefits in box 5 will be a negative figure (a figure in parentheses) and none of your benefits will be taxable. Hr block taxes online Do not use a worksheet in this case. Hr block taxes online If you receive more than one form, a negative figure in box 5 of one form is used to offset a positive figure in box 5 of another form for that same year. Hr block taxes online If you have any questions about this negative figure, contact your local SSA office or your local RRB field office. Hr block taxes online Joint return. Hr block taxes online   If you and your spouse file a joint return, and your Form SSA-1099 or RRB-1099 has a negative figure in box 5, but your spouse's does not, subtract the amount in box 5 of your form from the amount in box 5 of your spouse's form. Hr block taxes online You do this to get your net benefits when figuring if your combined benefits are taxable. Hr block taxes online Example. Hr block taxes online John and Mary file a joint return for 2013. Hr block taxes online John received Form SSA-1099 showing $3,000 in box 5. Hr block taxes online Mary also received Form SSA-1099 and the amount in box 5 was ($500). Hr block taxes online John and Mary will use $2,500 ($3,000 minus $500) as the amount of their net benefits when figuring if any of their combined benefits are taxable. Hr block taxes online Repayment of benefits received in an earlier year. Hr block taxes online   If the total amount shown in box 5 of all of your Forms SSA-1099 and RRB-1099 is a negative figure, you can take an itemized deduction for the part of this negative figure that represents benefits you included in gross income in an earlier year. Hr block taxes online Deduction $3,000 or less. Hr block taxes online   If this deduction is $3,000 or less, it is subject to the 2%-of-adjusted-gross-income limit that applies to certain miscellaneous itemized deductions. Hr block taxes online Claim it on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 23. Hr block taxes online Deduction more than $3,000. Hr block taxes online    If this deduction is more than $3,000, you should figure your tax two ways: Figure your tax for 2013 with the itemized deduction included on Schedule A, line 28. Hr block taxes online Figure your tax for 2013 in the following steps. Hr block taxes online Figure the tax without the itemized deduction included on Schedule A, line 28. Hr block taxes online For each year after 1983 for which part of the negative figure represents a repayment of benefits, refigure your taxable benefits as if your total benefits for the year were reduced by that part of the negative figure. Hr block taxes online Then refigure the tax for that year. Hr block taxes online Subtract the total of the refigured tax amounts in (b) from the total of your actual tax amounts. Hr block taxes online Subtract the result in (c) from the result in (a). Hr block taxes online Compare the tax figured in methods (1) and (2). Hr block taxes online Your tax for 2013 is the smaller of the two amounts. Hr block taxes online If method (1) results in less tax, take the itemized deduction on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 28. Hr block taxes online If method (2) results in less tax, claim a credit for the amount from step 2(c) above on Form 1040, line 71. Hr block taxes online Check box d and enter “I. Hr block taxes online R. Hr block taxes online C. Hr block taxes online 1341” in the space next to that box. Hr block taxes online If both methods produce the same tax, deduct the repayment on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 28. Hr block taxes online Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications

More than Half of all Income Tax Returns Have Been Received. IRS Issues Publication on Business Expenses

 

IR-2014-32, March 20, 2014

WASHINGTON — With the tax deadline getting closer, the IRS has received more than half of all the returns it expects to receive during 2014, the agency announced today. The IRS received more than 75 million individual tax returns as of March 14 and projects that it will receive about 149 million individual income tax returns by the end of the year.

Millions of individual tax filers have business income either as sole proprietors or as sub contractors. Many individual filers also have unreimbursed business expenses. The IRS recently issued Publication 535, Business Expenses, which provides valuable information for these filers. The publication contains useful hints for Tax Year 2013, for which many taxpayers are still completing returns and for Tax Year 2014, for which taxpayers are tracking expenses and making financial decisions.

For Tax Year 2013

Optional safe harbor method to determine the business use of a home deduction, also known as the simplified option for claiming the home office deduction. Beginning in 2013, taxpayers can use the optional safe harbor method to determine the deduction for the business use of a home. 

Standard mileage rate. Beginning in 2013, the standard mileage rate for the cost of operating a car, van, pickup, or panel truck for each mile of business use is 56.5 cents per mile.

Additional Medicare Tax. Beginning in 2013, a 0.9% Additional Medicare Tax applies to Medicare wages, railroad retirement (RRTA) compensation, and self-employment income that are more than:

  • $125,000 if married filing separately,
  • $250,000 if married filing jointly, or
  • $200,000 if single, head of household, or qualifying widow(er) with dependent child.

Medicare wages and self-employment income are combined to determine if a taxpayer’s income exceeds the threshold. RRTA compensation should be separately compared to the threshold. 

For Tax Year 2014

Standard mileage rate. Beginning in 2014, the standard mileage rate for the cost of operating a car, van, pickup, or panel truck for each mile of business use is 56 cents per mile.
