The Irs Form 1040x

Irs form 1040x 2. Irs form 1040x   Possession Source Income Table of Contents Types of IncomeCompensation for Labor or Personal Services Investment Income Sales or Other Dispositions of Property Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, Prizes, and Awards Effectively Connected Income In order to determine where to file your return and which form(s) you need to complete, you must determine the source of each item of income you received during the tax year. Irs form 1040x Income you received from sources within, or that was effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business within, the relevant possession must be identified separately from U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x or foreign source income. Irs form 1040x This chapter discusses the rules for determining if the source of your income is from: American Samoa, The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico), Guam, or The U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x Virgin Islands (USVI). Irs form 1040x Generally, the same rules that apply for determining U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x source income also apply for determining possession source income. Irs form 1040x However, there are some important exceptions to these rules. Irs form 1040x Both the general rules and the exceptions are discussed in this chapter. Irs form 1040x U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x income rule. Irs form 1040x   This rule states that income is not possession source income if, under the rules of Internal Revenue Code sections 861–865, it is treated as income: From sources within the United States, or Effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business within the United States. Irs form 1040x Table 2-1 shows the general rules for determining whether income is from sources within the United States. Irs form 1040x Table 2-1. Irs form 1040x General Rules for Determining U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x Source of Income Item of Income Factor Determining Source Salaries, wages, and other compensation for labor or personal services Where labor or services performed Pensions Contributions: Where services were performed that earned the pension Investment earnings: Where pension trust is located Interest Residence of payer Dividends Where corporation created or organized Rents Location of property Royalties:   Natural resources Location of property Patents, copyrights, etc. Irs form 1040x Where property is used Sale of business inventory—purchased Where sold Sale of business inventory—produced Allocation if produced and sold in different locations Sale of real property Location of property Sale of personal property Seller's tax home (but see Special Rules for Gains From Dispositions of Certain Property , later, for exceptions) Sale of natural resources Allocation based on fair market value of product at export terminal. Irs form 1040x For more information, see Regulations section 1. Irs form 1040x 863-1(b). Irs form 1040x Types of Income This section looks at the most common types of income received by individuals, and the rules for determining the source of the income. Irs form 1040x Generally, the same rules shown in Table 2-1 are used to determine if you have possession source income. Irs form 1040x Compensation for Labor or Personal Services Income from labor or personal services includes wages, salaries, commissions, fees, per diem allowances, employee allowances and bonuses, and fringe benefits. Irs form 1040x It also includes income earned by sole proprietors and general partners from providing personal services in the course of their trade or business. Irs form 1040x Services performed wholly within a relevant possession. Irs form 1040x   Generally, all pay you receive for services performed in a relevant possession is considered to be from sources within that possession. Irs form 1040x However, there is an exception for income earned as a member of the U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x Armed Forces or a civilian spouse. Irs form 1040x U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x Armed Forces. Irs form 1040x   If you are a bona fide resident of a relevant possession, your military service pay will be sourced in that possession even if you perform the services in the United States or another possession. Irs form 1040x However, if you are not a bona fide resident of a possession, your military service pay will be income from the  United States even if you perform services in a possession. Irs form 1040x Civilian spouse of active duty member of the U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x Armed Forces. Irs form 1040x   If you are a bona fide resident of a U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x possession and choose to keep that possession as your tax residence under MSRRA when relocating with your servicemember spouse under military orders, the source of income for your labor or personal services is considered to be that possession. Irs form 1040x Likewise, if your tax residence is in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia before relocating and you choose to keep it as your tax residence, the source of income for services performed in any of the U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x possessions is considered to be the United States and, specifically, your state of residence or the District of Columbia. Irs form 1040x Services performed partly inside and partly outside a relevant possession. Irs form 1040x   If you are an employee and receive compensation for labor or personal services performed both inside and outside the relevant possession, special rules apply in determining the source of the compensation. Irs form 1040x Compensation (other than certain fringe benefits) is sourced on a time basis. Irs form 1040x Certain fringe benefits (such as housing and education) are sourced on a geographical basis. Irs form 1040x   Or, you may be permitted to use an alternative basis to determine the source of compensation. Irs form 1040x See Alternative basis , later. Irs form 1040x   If you are self-employed, determine the source of your income for labor or personal services from self-employment on the basis that most correctly reflects the proper source of that income under the facts and circumstances of your particular case. Irs form 1040x In many cases, the facts and circumstances will call for an apportionment on a time basis as explained next. Irs form 1040x Time basis. Irs form 1040x   Use a time basis to figure your compensation for labor or personal services from the relevant possession (other than the fringe benefits discussed later). Irs form 1040x Do this by multiplying your total compensation (other than the fringe benefits discussed later) by the following fraction:   Number of days you performed  services in the relevant  possession during the year     Total number of days you  performed services during the year           You can use a unit of time less than a day in the above fraction, if appropriate. Irs form 1040x The time period for which the income is made does not have to be a year. Irs form 1040x Instead, you can use another distinct, separate, and continuous time period if you can establish to the satisfaction of the IRS that this other period is more appropriate. Irs form 1040x Example. Irs form 1040x In 2013, you worked in your employer's office in the United States for 60 days and in the Puerto Rico office for 180 days, earning a total of $80,000 for the year. Irs form 1040x Your Puerto Rico source income is $60,000, figured as follows. Irs form 1040x       180 days 240 days × $80,000 = $60,000                 Multi-year compensation. Irs form 1040x   The source of multi-year compensation is generally determined on a time basis over the period to which the compensation is attributable. Irs form 1040x Multi-year compensation is compensation that is included in your income in 1 tax year but is attributable to a period that includes 2 or more tax years. Irs form 1040x You determine the period to which the income is attributable based on the facts and circumstances of your case. Irs form 1040x For more information on multi-year compensation, see Treasury Decision (T. Irs form 1040x D. Irs form 1040x ) 9212 and Regulations section 1. Irs form 1040x 861-4, 2005-35 I. Irs form 1040x R. Irs form 1040x B. Irs form 1040x 429, available at www. Irs form 1040x irs. Irs form 1040x gov/irb/2005-35_IRB/ar14. Irs form 1040x html. Irs form 1040x Certain fringe benefits sourced on a geographical basis. Irs form 1040x   If you received any of the following fringe benefits as compensation for labor or services performed as an employee partly inside and partly outside a relevant possession, you must source that income on a geographical basis. Irs form 1040x Housing. Irs form 1040x Education. Irs form 1040x Local transportation. Irs form 1040x Tax reimbursement. Irs form 1040x Hazardous or hardship duty pay. Irs form 1040x Moving expense reimbursement. Irs form 1040x For information on determining the source of the fringe benefits listed above, see Regulations section 1. Irs form 1040x 861-4. Irs form 1040x Alternative basis. Irs form 1040x   You can determine the source of your compensation under an alternative basis if you establish to the satisfaction of the IRS that, under the facts and circumstances of your case, the alternative basis more properly determines the source of your income than the time or geographical basis. Irs form 1040x If you use an alternative basis, you must keep (and have available for inspection) records to document why the alternative basis more properly determines the source of your income. Irs form 1040x De minimis exception. Irs form 1040x   There is an exception to the rule for determining the source of income earned in a possession. Irs form 1040x Generally, you will not have income from a possession if during a tax year you: Are a U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x citizen or resident, Are not a bona fide resident of that possession, Are not employed by or under contract with an individual, partnership, or corporation that is engaged in a trade or business in that possession, Temporarily perform services in that possession for 90 days or less, and Earned $3,000 or less from such services. Irs form 1040x This exception began with income earned during your 2008 tax year. Irs form 1040x Pensions. Irs form 1040x   Generally, pension income has two components: contributions to the pension plan and the earnings accrued from investing those contributions. Irs form 1040x The contribution portion is sourced according to where services were performed that earned the pension. Irs form 1040x The investment earnings portion is sourced according to the location of the pension trust. Irs form 1040x Example. Irs form 1040x You are a U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x citizen who worked in Puerto Rico for a U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x company. Irs form 1040x All services were performed in Puerto Rico. Irs form 1040x Upon retirement you remained in Puerto Rico and began receiving your pension from the U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x pension trust of your employer. Irs form 1040x Distributions from the U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x pension trust must be allocated between (1) contributions, which are Puerto Rico source income, and (2) investment earnings, which are U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x source income. Irs form 1040x Investment Income This category includes such income as interest, dividends, rents, and royalties. Irs form 1040x Interest income. Irs form 1040x   The source of interest income is generally determined by the residence of the payer. Irs form 1040x Interest paid by corporations created or organized in a relevant possession (possession corporation) or by individuals who are bona fide residents of a relevant possession is considered income from sources within that possession. Irs form 1040x   However, there is an exception to this rule if you are a bona fide resident of a relevant possession, receive interest from a corporation created or organized in that possession, and are a shareholder of that corporation who owns, directly or indirectly, at least 10% of the total voting stock of the corporation. Irs form 1040x See Regulations section 1. Irs form 1040x 937-2(i) for more information. Irs form 1040x Dividends. Irs form 1040x   Generally, dividends paid by a corporation created or organized in a relevant possession will be considered income from sources within that possession. Irs form 1040x There are additional rules for bona fide residents of a relevant possession who receive dividend income from possession corporations, and who own, directly or indirectly, at least 10% of the voting stock of the corporation. Irs form 1040x For more information, see Regulations section 1. Irs form 1040x 937-2(g). Irs form 1040x Rental income. Irs form 1040x   Rents from property located in a relevant possession are treated as income from sources within that possession. Irs form 1040x Royalties. Irs form 1040x   Royalties from natural resources located in a relevant possession are considered income from sources within that possession. Irs form 1040x   Also considered possession source income are royalties received for the use of, or for the privilege of using, in a relevant possession, patents, copyrights, secret processes and formulas, goodwill, trademarks, trade brands, franchises, and other like property. Irs form 1040x Sales or Other Dispositions of Property The source rules for sales or other dispositions of property are varied. Irs form 1040x The most common situations are discussed below. Irs form 1040x Real property. Irs form 1040x   Real property includes land and buildings, and generally anything built on, growing on, or attached to land. Irs form 1040x The location of the property generally determines the source of income from the sale. Irs form 1040x For example, if you are a bona fide resident of Guam and sell your home that is located in Guam, the gain on the sale is sourced in Guam. Irs form 1040x If, however, the home you sold was located in the United States, the gain is U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x source income. Irs form 1040x Personal property. Irs form 1040x   The term “personal property” refers to property (such as machinery, equipment, or furniture) that is not real property. Irs form 1040x Generally, gain (or loss) from the sale or other disposition is sourced according to the seller's tax home. Irs form 1040x If personal property is sold by a bona fide resident of a relevant possession, the gain (or loss) from the sale is treated as sourced within that possession. Irs form 1040x   This rule does not apply to the sale of inventory, intangible property, depreciable personal property, or property sold through a foreign office or fixed place of business. Irs form 1040x The rules applying to sales of inventory are discussed below. Irs form 1040x For information on sales of the other types of property mentioned, see Internal Revenue Code section 865. Irs form 1040x Inventory. Irs form 1040x   Your inventory is personal property that is stock in trade or that is held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of your trade or business. Irs form 1040x The source of income from the sale of inventory depends on whether the inventory was purchased or produced. Irs form 1040x Purchased. Irs form 1040x   Income from the sale of inventory that you purchased is sourced where you sell the property. Irs form 1040x Generally, this is where title to the property passes to the buyer. Irs form 1040x Produced. Irs form 1040x   Income from the sale of inventory that you produced in a relevant possession and sold outside that possession (or vice versa) is sourced based on an allocation. Irs form 1040x For information on making the allocation, see Regulations section 1. Irs form 1040x 863-3(f). Irs form 1040x Special Rules for Gains From Dispositions of Certain Property There are special rules for gains from dispositions of certain investment property (for example, stocks, bonds, debt instruments, diamonds, and gold) owned by a U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x citizen or resident alien prior to becoming a bona fide resident of a possession. Irs form 1040x You are subject to these special rules if you meet both of the following conditions. Irs form 1040x For the tax year for which the source of the gain must be determined, you are a bona fide resident of the relevant possession. Irs form 1040x For any of the 10 years preceding that year, you were a citizen or resident alien of the United States (other than a bona fide resident of the relevant possession). Irs form 1040x If you meet these conditions, gains from the disposition of this property will not be treated as income from sources within the relevant possession for purposes of the Internal Revenue Code. Irs form 1040x Accordingly, bona fide residents of American Samoa and Puerto Rico, for example, may not exclude the gain on their U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x tax return. Irs form 1040x (See chapter 3 for additional filing information. Irs form 1040x ) With respect to the CNMI, Guam, and the USVI, the gain from the disposition of this property will not meet the requirements for certain tax rules that may allow bona fide residents of those possessions to reduce or obtain a rebate of taxes on income from sources within the relevant possessions. Irs form 1040x These rules apply to dispositions after April 11, 2005. Irs form 1040x For details, see Regulations section 1. Irs form 1040x 937-2(f)(1) and Examples 1 and 2 of section 1. Irs form 1040x 937-2(k). Irs form 1040x Example 1. Irs form 1040x In 2007, Cheryl Jones, a U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x citizen, lived in the United States and paid $1,000 for 100 shares of stock in the Rose Corporation, a U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x corporation listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Irs form 1040x On March 1, 2010, she moved to Puerto Rico and changed her tax home to Puerto Rico on the same date. Irs form 1040x Cheryl satisfied the presence test in 2010 and, under the year-of-move exception, she was considered a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico for the rest of 2010. Irs form 1040x On March 1, 2010, the closing value of Cheryl's stock in the Rose Corporation was $2,000. Irs form 1040x On January 5, 2013, while still a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico, Cheryl sold all her Rose Corporation stock for $7,000. Irs form 1040x Under the earlier rules, none of Cheryl's $6,000 gain will be treated as income from sources within Puerto Rico. Irs form 1040x The source rules discussed in the preceding paragraphs supplement, and may apply in conjunction with, an existing special rule. Irs form 1040x This existing special rule applies if you are a U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x citizen or resident alien who becomes a bona fide resident of American Samoa, the CNMI, or Guam, and who has gain from the disposition of certain U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x assets during the 10-year period beginning when you became a bona fide resident. Irs form 1040x The gain is U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x source income that generally is subject to U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x tax if the property is either (1) located in the United States; (2) stock issued by a U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x corporation or a debt obligation of a U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x person or of the United States, a state (or political subdivision), or the District of Columbia; or (3) property that has a basis in whole or in part by reference to property described in (1) or (2). Irs form 1040x See chapter 3 for filing information. Irs form 1040x Special election. Irs form 1040x   For dispositions after April 11, 2005, you can choose to treat the part of gain (or loss) attributable to the time you held the property while a bona fide resident of the relevant possession (the possession holding period) as gain (or loss) from sources within that possession. Irs form 1040x Make the election by reporting the gain attributable to the possession holding period on your income tax return for the year of disposition. Irs form 1040x This election overrides both of the special rules discussed earlier. Irs form 1040x   There are two methods for figuring the gain for the possession holding period, one for marketable securities and another for other types of investment property. Irs form 1040x Marketable securities. Irs form 1040x   Marketable securities are those actively traded on an established financial market, such as stock in a publicly held corporation. Irs form 1040x Under the special election, allocate the gain (or loss) by figuring the appreciation separately for your possession and U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x holding periods. Irs form 1040x   Your possession holding period begins on the first day you do not have a tax home outside the relevant possession. Irs form 1040x The gain (or loss) attributable to the possession holding period is the difference in fair market value of the security at the close of the market on the first and last days of this holding period. Irs form 1040x This is your gain (or loss) that is treated as being from sources within the relevant possession. Irs form 1040x If you were a bona fide resident of the relevant possession for more than one continuous period, combine the gains (or losses) from each possession holding period. Irs form 1040x Example 2. Irs form 1040x Assume the same facts as in Example 1, except that Cheryl makes the special election to allocate the gain between her U. Irs form 1040x S. Irs form 1040x and possession holding periods. Irs form 1040x Cheryl's possession holding period began March 1, 2010, the date her tax home changed to Puerto Rico. Irs form 1040x Therefore, the portion of gain attributable to her possession holding period is $5,000 ($7,000 sale price – $2,000 closing value on first day of the possession holding period). Irs form 1040x By reporting $5,000 of her $6,000 gain as Puerto Rico source income on her 2013 Puerto Rico tax return (and the remainder as non-Puerto Rico source income), Cheryl elects to treat that amount as Puerto Rico source income. Irs form 1040x Other personal property. Irs form 1040x   For personal property other than marketable securities, use a time-based allocation. Irs form 1040x Figure the gain (or loss) attributable to the possession holding period by multiplying your total gain (or loss) by the following fraction. Irs form 1040x      Number of days in the  possession holding period     Total number of days  in your holding period         The result is your gain (or loss) that is treated as being from sources within the relevant possession. Irs form 1040x Example 3. Irs form 1040x In addition to the stock in Rose Corporation, Cheryl acquired a 5% interest in the Alder Partnership on January 1, 2009. Irs form 1040x On March 1, 2010, when she established bona fide residency in Puerto Rico, her partnership interest was not considered a marketable security. Irs form 1040x On September 16, 2013, while still a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico, Cheryl sold her interest in Alder Partnership for a $100,000 gain. Irs form 1040x She had owned the interest for a total of 1,720 days. Irs form 1040x Cheryl's possession holding period (from March 1, 2010, through September 16, 2013) is 1,296 days. Irs form 1040x The portion of her gain attributable to Puerto Rico is $75,349 ($100,000 x (1,296 Puerto Rico days ÷ 1,720 total days)). Irs form 1040x By reporting $75,349 of her $100,000 gain as Puerto Rico source income on her 2013 Puerto Rico tax return (and the remainder as non-Puerto Rico source income), Cheryl elects to treat that amount as Puerto Rico source income. Irs form 1040x Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, Prizes, and Awards The source of these types of income is generally the residence of the payer, regardless of who actually disburses the funds. Irs form 1040x Therefore, in order to be possession source income, the payer must be a resident of the relevant possession, such as an individual who is a bona fide resident or a corporation created or organized in that possession. Irs form 1040x These rules do not apply to amounts paid as salary or other compensation for services. Irs form 1040x See Compensation for Labor or Personal Services, earlier in this chapter, for the source rules that apply. Irs form 1040x Effectively Connected Income In limited circumstances, some kinds of income from sources outside the relevant possession must be treated as effectively connected with a trade or business in that possession. Irs form 1040x These circumstances are listed below. Irs form 1040x You have an office or other fixed place of business in the relevant possession to which the income can be attributed. Irs form 1040x That office or place of business is a material factor in producing the income. Irs form 1040x The income is produced in the ordinary course of the trade or business carried on through that office or other fixed place of business. Irs form 1040x An office or other fixed place of business is a material factor if it significantly contributes to, and is an essential economic element in, the earning of the income. Irs form 1040x The three kinds of income from sources outside the relevant possession to which these rules apply are the following. Irs form 1040x Rents and royalties for the use of, or for the privilege of using, intangible personal property located outside the relevant possession or from any interest in such property. Irs form 1040x Included are rents or royalties for the use of, or for the privilege of using, outside the relevant possession, patents, copyrights, secret processes and formulas, goodwill, trademarks, trade brands, franchises, and similar properties if the rents or royalties are from the active conduct of a trade or business in the relevant possession. Irs form 1040x Dividends or interest from the active conduct of a banking, financing, or similar business in the relevant possession. Irs form 1040x Income, gain, or loss from the sale or exchange outside the relevant possession, through the office or other fixed place of business in the relevant possession, of: Stock in trade, Property that would be included in inventory if on hand at the end of the tax year, or Property held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of business. Irs form 1040x Item (3) will not apply if you sold the property for use, consumption, or disposition outside the relevant possession and an office or other fixed place of business in a foreign country was a material factor in the sale. Irs form 1040x Example. Irs form 1040x Marcy Jackson is a bona fide resident of American Samoa.
