Need to file my 2011 taxes In some states, the income you earn after you are separated and before a divorce decree is issued continues to be community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes In other states, it is separate income. Need to file my 2011 taxes 3Under special rules, income that can otherwise be characterized as community income may not be treated as community income for federal income tax purposes in certain situations. Need to file my 2011 taxes See Community Property Laws Disregarded , later. Need to file my 2011 taxes Identifying Income, Deductions, and Credits If you file separate returns, you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) each must attach your Form 8958 to your Form 1040 to identify your community and separate income, deductions, credits, and other return amounts according to the laws of your state. Need to file my 2011 taxes Under special rules, income that can otherwise be characterized as community income may not be treated as community income for federal income tax purposes in certain situations. Need to file my 2011 taxes See Community Property Laws Disregarded, later. Need to file my 2011 taxes Check your state law if you are separated but do not meet the conditions discussed in Spouses living apart all year, later. Need to file my 2011 taxes In some states, the income you earn after you are separated and before a divorce decree is issued continues to be community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes In other states, it is separate income. Need to file my 2011 taxes Income The following is a discussion of the general effect of community property laws on the federal income tax treatment of certain items of income. Need to file my 2011 taxes Wages, earnings, and profits. Need to file my 2011 taxes    A spouse's (or your registered domestic partner's) wages, earnings, and net profits from a sole proprietorship are community income and must be evenly split. Need to file my 2011 taxes Dividends, interest, and rents. Need to file my 2011 taxes    Dividends, interest, and rents from community property are community income and must be evenly split. Need to file my 2011 taxes Dividends, interest, and rents from separate property are characterized in accordance with the discussion under Income from separate property , later. Need to file my 2011 taxes Example. Need to file my 2011 taxes If you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) buy a bond that is considered community property under your state laws, half the bond interest belongs to you and half belongs to your spouse. Need to file my 2011 taxes You each must show the bond interest and the split of that interest on your Form 8958, and report half the interest on your Form 1040. Need to file my 2011 taxes Attach your Form 8958 to your Form 1040. Need to file my 2011 taxes Alimony received. Need to file my 2011 taxes    Alimony or separate maintenance payments made prior to divorce are taxable to the payee spouse only to the extent they exceed 50% (his or her share) of the reportable community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes This is so because the payee spouse is already required to report half of the community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes See also Alimony paid , later. Need to file my 2011 taxes Gains and losses. Need to file my 2011 taxes    Gains and losses are classified as separate or community depending on how the property is held. Need to file my 2011 taxes For example, a loss on separate property, such as stock held separately, is a separate loss. Need to file my 2011 taxes On the other hand, a loss on community property, such as a casualty loss to your home held as community property, is a community loss. Need to file my 2011 taxes See Publication 544, Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets, for information on gains and losses. Need to file my 2011 taxes See Publication 547, Casualties, Disasters, and Thefts, for information on losses due to a casualty or theft. Need to file my 2011 taxes Withdrawals from individual retirement arrangements (IRAs) and Coverdell Education Savings Accounts (ESAs). Need to file my 2011 taxes    There are several kinds of individual retirement arrangements (IRAs). Need to file my 2011 taxes They are traditional IRAs (including SEP-IRAs), SIMPLE IRAs, and Roth IRAs. Need to file my 2011 taxes IRAs and ESAs by law are deemed to be separate property. Need to file my 2011 taxes Therefore, taxable IRA and ESA distributions are separate property, even if the funds in the account would otherwise be community property. Need to file my 2011 taxes These distributions are wholly taxable to the spouse (or registered domestic partner) whose name is on the account. Need to file my 2011 taxes That spouse (or registered domestic partner) is also liable for any penalties and additional taxes on the distributions. Need to file my 2011 taxes Pensions. Need to file my 2011 taxes    Generally, distributions from pensions will be characterized as community or separate income depending on the respective periods of participation in the pension while married (or during the registered domestic partnership) and domiciled in a community property state or in a noncommunity property state during the total period of participation in the pension. Need to file my 2011 taxes See the example under Civil service retirement , later. Need to file my 2011 taxes These rules may vary between states. Need to file my 2011 taxes Check your state law. Need to file my 2011 taxes Lump-sum distributions. Need to file my 2011 taxes    If you were born before January 2, 1936, and receive a lump-sum distribution from a qualified retirement plan, you may be able to choose an optional method of figuring the tax on the distribution. Need to file my 2011 taxes For the 10-year tax option, you must disregard community property laws. Need to file my 2011 taxes For more information, see Publication 575, Pension and Annuity Income, and Form 4972, Tax on Lump-Sum Distributions. Need to file my 2011 taxes Civil service retirement. Need to file my 2011 taxes    For income tax purposes, community property laws apply to annuities payable under the Civil Service Retirement Act (CSRS) or Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS). Need to file my 2011 taxes   Whether a civil service annuity is separate or community income depends on your marital status (or your status as a registered domestic partner) and domicile of the employee when the services were performed for which the annuity is paid. Need to file my 2011 taxes Even if you now live in a noncommunity property state and you receive a civil service annuity, it may be community income if it is based on services you performed while married (or during the registered domestic partnership) and domiciled in a community property state. Need to file my 2011 taxes   If a civil service annuity is a mixture of community income and separate income, it must be divided between the two kinds of income. Need to file my 2011 taxes The division is based on the employee's domicile and marital status (or registered domestic partnership) in community and noncommunity property states during his or her periods of service. Need to file my 2011 taxes Example. Need to file my 2011 taxes Henry Wright retired this year after 30 years of civil service. Need to file my 2011 taxes He and his wife were domiciled in a community property state during the past 15 years. Need to file my 2011 taxes Since half the service was performed while the Wrights were married and domiciled in a community property state, half the civil service retirement pay is considered to be community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes If Mr. Need to file my 2011 taxes Wright receives $1,000 a month in retirement pay, $500 is considered community income—half ($250) is his income and half ($250) is his wife's. Need to file my 2011 taxes Military retirement pay. Need to file my 2011 taxes    State community property laws apply to military retirement pay. Need to file my 2011 taxes Generally, the pay is either separate or community income based on the marital status and domicile of the couple while the member of the Armed Forces was in active military service. Need to file my 2011 taxes For example, military retirement pay for services performed during marriage and domicile in a community property state is community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes   Active military pay earned while married and domiciled in a community property state is also community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes This income is considered to be received half by the member of the Armed Forces and half by the spouse. Need to file my 2011 taxes Partnership income. Need to file my 2011 taxes    If an interest is held in a partnership, and income from the partnership is attributable to the efforts of either spouse (or registered domestic partner), the partnership income is community property. Need to file my 2011 taxes If it is merely a passive investment in a separate property partnership, the partnership income will be characterized in accordance with the discussion under Income from separate property , later. Need to file my 2011 taxes Tax-exempt income. Need to file my 2011 taxes    For spouses, community income exempt from federal tax generally keeps its exempt status for both spouses. Need to file my 2011 taxes For example, under certain circumstances, income earned outside the United States is tax exempt. Need to file my 2011 taxes If you earned income and met the conditions that made it exempt, the income is also exempt for your spouse even though he or she may not have met the conditions. Need to file my 2011 taxes Registered domestic partners should consult the particular exclusion provision to see if the exempt status applies to both. Need to file my 2011 taxes Income from separate property. Need to file my 2011 taxes    In some states, income from separate property is separate income. Need to file my 2011 taxes These states include Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Washington. Need to file my 2011 taxes Other states characterize income from separate property as community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes These states include Idaho, Louisiana, Texas, and Wisconsin. Need to file my 2011 taxes Exemptions When you file separate returns, you must claim your own exemption amount for that year. Need to file my 2011 taxes (See your tax return instructions. Need to file my 2011 taxes ) You cannot divide the amount allowed as an exemption for a dependent between you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner). Need to file my 2011 taxes When community funds provide support for more than one person, each of whom otherwise qualifies as a dependent, you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) may divide the number of dependency exemptions as explained in the following example. Need to file my 2011 taxes Example. Need to file my 2011 taxes Ron and Diane White have three dependent children and live in Nevada. Need to file my 2011 taxes If Ron and Diane file separately, only Ron can claim his own exemption, and only Diane can claim her own exemption. Need to file my 2011 taxes Ron and Diane can agree that one of them will claim the exemption for one, two, or all of their children and the other will claim any remaining exemptions. Need to file my 2011 taxes They cannot each claim half of the total exemption amount for their three children. Need to file my 2011 taxes Deductions If you file separate returns, your deductions generally depend on whether the expenses involve community or separate income. Need to file my 2011 taxes Business and investment expenses. Need to file my 2011 taxes    If you file separate returns, expenses incurred to earn or produce community business or investment income are generally divided equally between you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner). Need to file my 2011 taxes Each of you is entitled to deduct one-half of the expenses on your separate returns. Need to file my 2011 taxes Expenses incurred by a spouse (or registered domestic partner) to produce separate business or investment income is deductible by the spouse (or the registered domestic partner) who earns the corresponding separate business or investment income. Need to file my 2011 taxes    Other limits may also apply to business and investment expenses. Need to file my 2011 taxes For more information, see Publication 535, Business Expenses, and Publication 550, Investment Income and Expenses. Need to file my 2011 taxes Alimony paid. Need to file my 2011 taxes    Payments that may otherwise qualify as alimony are not deductible by the payer if they are the recipient spouse's part of community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes They are deductible as alimony only to the extent they are more than that spouse's part of community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes Example. Need to file my 2011 taxes You live in a community property state. Need to file my 2011 taxes You are separated but the special rules explained later under Spouses living apart all year do not apply. Need to file my 2011 taxes Under a written agreement, you pay your spouse $12,000 of your $20,000 total yearly community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes Your spouse receives no other community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes Under your state law, earnings of a spouse living separately and apart from the other spouse continue as community property. Need to file my 2011 taxes On your separate returns, each of you must report $10,000 of the total community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes In addition, your spouse must report $2,000 as alimony received. Need to file my 2011 taxes You can deduct $2,000 as alimony paid. Need to file my 2011 taxes IRA deduction. Need to file my 2011 taxes    Deductions for IRA contributions cannot be split between spouses (or registered domestic partners). Need to file my 2011 taxes The deduction for each spouse (or each registered domestic partner) is figured separately and without regard to community property laws. Need to file my 2011 taxes Personal expenses. Need to file my 2011 taxes   Expenses that are paid out of separate funds, such as medical expenses, are deductible by the spouse who pays them. Need to file my 2011 taxes If these expenses are paid from community funds, divide the deduction equally between you and your spouse. Need to file my 2011 taxes Credits, Taxes, and Payments The following is a discussion of the general effect of community property laws on the treatment of certain credits, taxes, and payments on your separate return. Need to file my 2011 taxes Child tax credit. Need to file my 2011 taxes    You may be entitled to a child tax credit for each of your qualifying children. Need to file my 2011 taxes You must provide the name and identification number (usually the social security number) of each qualifying child on your return. Need to file my 2011 taxes See your tax return instructions for the maximum amount of the credit you can claim for each qualifying child. Need to file my 2011 taxes Limit on credit. Need to file my 2011 taxes    The credit is limited if your modified adjusted gross income (modified AGI) is above a certain amount. Need to file my 2011 taxes The amount at which the limitation (phaseout) begins depends on your filing status. Need to file my 2011 taxes Generally, your credit is limited to your tax liability unless you have three or more qualifying children. Need to file my 2011 taxes See your tax return instructions for more information. Need to file my 2011 taxes Self-employment tax. Need to file my 2011 taxes    For the effect of community property laws on the income tax treatment of income from a sole proprietorship and partnerships, see Wages, earnings, and profits and Partnership income , earlier. Need to file my 2011 taxes The following rules only apply to persons married for federal tax purposes. Need to file my 2011 taxes Registered domestic partners report community income for self-employment tax purposes the same way they do for income tax purposes. Need to file my 2011 taxes Sole proprietorship. Need to file my 2011 taxes    With regard to net income from a trade or business (other than a partnership) that is community income, self-employment tax is imposed on the spouse carrying on the trade or business. Need to file my 2011 taxes Partnerships. Need to file my 2011 taxes    All of the distributive share of a married partner's income or loss from a partnership trade or business is attributable to the partner for computing any self-employment tax, even if a portion of the partner's distributive share of income or loss is community income or loss that is otherwise attributable to the partner's spouse for income tax purposes. Need to file my 2011 taxes If both spouses are partners, any self-employment tax is allocated based on their distributive shares. Need to file my 2011 taxes Federal income tax withheld. Need to file my 2011 taxes    Report the credit for federal income tax withheld on community wages in the same manner as your wages. Need to file my 2011 taxes If you and your spouse file separate returns on which each of you reports half the community wages, each of you is entitled to credit for half the income tax withheld on those wages. Need to file my 2011 taxes Likewise, each registered domestic partner is entitled to credit for half the income tax withheld on those wages. Need to file my 2011 taxes Estimated tax payments. Need to file my 2011 taxes    In determining whether you must pay estimated tax, apply the estimated tax rules to your estimated income. Need to file my 2011 taxes These rules are explained in Publication 505. Need to file my 2011 taxes   If you think you may owe estimated tax and want to pay the tax separately (registered domestic partners must pay the tax separately), determine whether you must pay it by taking into account: Half the community income and deductions, All of your separate income and deductions, and Your own exemption and any exemptions for dependents that you may claim. Need to file my 2011 taxes   Whether you and your spouse pay estimated tax jointly or separately will not affect your choice of filing joint or separate income tax returns. Need to file my 2011 taxes   If you and your spouse paid estimated tax jointly but file separate income tax returns, either of you can claim all of the estimated tax paid, or you may divide it between you in any way that you agree upon. Need to file my 2011 taxes   If you cannot agree on how to divide it, the estimated tax you can claim equals the total estimated tax paid times the tax shown on your separate return, divided by the total of the tax shown on your return and your spouse's return. Need to file my 2011 taxes   If you paid your estimated taxes separately, you get credit for only the estimated taxes you paid. Need to file my 2011 taxes Earned income credit. Need to file my 2011 taxes    You may be entitled to an earned income credit (EIC). Need to file my 2011 taxes You cannot claim this credit if your filing status is married filing separately. Need to file my 2011 taxes   If you are married, but qualify to file as head of household under rules for married taxpayers living apart (see Publication 501, Exemptions, Standard Deduction, and Filing Information), and live in a state that has community property laws, your earned income for the EIC does not include any amount earned by your spouse that is treated as belonging to you under community property laws. Need to file my 2011 taxes That amount is not earned income for the EIC, even though you must include it in your gross income on your income tax return. Need to file my 2011 taxes Your earned income includes the entire amount you earned, even if part of it is treated as belonging to your spouse under your state's community property laws. Need to file my 2011 taxes The same rule applies to registered domestic partners. Need to file my 2011 taxes    This rule does not apply when determining your adjusted gross income (AGI) for the EIC. Need to file my 2011 taxes Your AGI includes that part of both your and your spouse's (or your registered domestic partner's) wages that you are required to include in gross income shown on your tax return. Need to file my 2011 taxes   For more information about the EIC, see Publication 596, Earned Income Credit (EIC). Need to file my 2011 taxes Overpayments. Need to file my 2011 taxes    The amount of an overpayment on a joint return is allocated under the community property laws of the state in which you are domiciled. Need to file my 2011 taxes If, under the laws of your state, community property is subject to premarital or other separate debts of either spouse, the full joint overpayment may be used to offset the obligation. Need to file my 2011 taxes If, under the laws of your state, community property is not subject to premarital or other separate debts of either spouse, only the portion of the joint overpayment allocated to the spouse liable for the obligation can be used to offset that liability. Need to file my 2011 taxes The portion allocated to the other spouse can be refunded. Need to file my 2011 taxes Community Property Laws Disregarded The following discussions are situations where special rules apply to community property and community income for spouses. Need to file my 2011 taxes These rules do not apply to registered domestic partners. Need to file my 2011 taxes Certain community income not treated as community income by one spouse. Need to file my 2011 taxes    Community property laws may not apply to an item of community income that you received but did not treat as community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes You are responsible for reporting all of that income item if: You treat the item as if only you are entitled to the income, and You do not notify your spouse of the nature and amount of the income by the due date for filing the return (including extensions). Need to file my 2011 taxes Relief from liability arising from community property law. Need to file my 2011 taxes    You are not responsible for the tax relating to an item of community income if all the following conditions are met. Need to file my 2011 taxes You did not file a joint return for the tax year. Need to file my 2011 taxes You did not include an item of community income in gross income. Need to file my 2011 taxes The item of community income you did not include is one of the following: Wages, salaries, and other compensation your spouse (or former spouse) received for services he or she performed as an employee. Need to file my 2011 taxes Income your spouse (or former spouse) derived from a trade or business he or she operated as a sole proprietor.

Need to file my 2011 taxes    If you are married at any time during the calendar year, special rules apply for reporting certain community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes You must meet all the following conditions for these special rules to apply. Need to file my 2011 taxes You and your spouse lived apart all year. Need to file my 2011 taxes You and your spouse did not file a joint return for a tax year beginning or ending in the calendar year. Need to file my 2011 taxes You and/or your spouse had earned income for the calendar year that is community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes You and your spouse have not transferred, directly or indirectly, any of the earned income in condition (3) above between yourselves before the end of the year. Need to file my 2011 taxes Do not take into account transfers satisfying child support obligations or transfers of very small amounts or value. Need to file my 2011 taxes If all these conditions are met, you and your spouse must report your community income as discussed next. Need to file my 2011 taxes See also Certain community income not treated as community income by one spouse , earlier. Need to file my 2011 taxes Earned income. Need to file my 2011 taxes    Treat earned income that is not trade or business or partnership income as the income of the spouse who performed the services to earn the income. Need to file my 2011 taxes Earned income is wages, salaries, professional fees, and other pay for personal services. Need to file my 2011 taxes   Earned income does not include amounts paid by a corporation that are a distribution of earnings and profits rather than a reasonable allowance for personal services rendered. Need to file my 2011 taxes Trade or business income. Need to file my 2011 taxes    Treat income and related deductions from a trade or business that is not a partnership as those of the spouse carrying on the trade or business. Need to file my 2011 taxes Partnership income or loss. Need to file my 2011 taxes    Treat income or loss from a trade or business carried on by a partnership as the income or loss of the spouse who is the partner. Need to file my 2011 taxes Separate property income. Need to file my 2011 taxes    Treat income from the separate property of one spouse as the income of that spouse. Need to file my 2011 taxes Social security benefits. Need to file my 2011 taxes    Treat social security and equivalent railroad retirement benefits as the income of the spouse who receives the benefits. Need to file my 2011 taxes Other income. Need to file my 2011 taxes    Treat all other community income, such as dividends, interest, rents, royalties, or gains, as provided under your state's community property law. Need to file my 2011 taxes Example. Need to file my 2011 taxes George and Sharon were married throughout the year but did not live together at any time during the year. Need to file my 2011 taxes Both domiciles were in a community property state. Need to file my 2011 taxes They did not file a joint return or transfer any of their earned income between themselves. Need to file my 2011 taxes During the year their incomes were as follows:   George Sharon Wages $20,000 $22,000 Consulting business 5,000   Partnership   10,000 Dividends from separate property 1,000 2,000 Interest from community property 500 500 Total $26,500 $34,500 Under the community property law of their state, all the income is considered community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes (Some states treat income from separate property as separate income—check your state law. Need to file my 2011 taxes ) Sharon did not take part in George's consulting business. Need to file my 2011 taxes Ordinarily, on their separate returns they would each report $30,500, half the total community income of $61,000 ($26,500 + $34,500). Need to file my 2011 taxes But because they meet the four conditions listed earlier under Spouses living apart all year , they must disregard community property law in reporting all their income (except the interest income) from community property. Need to file my 2011 taxes They each report on their returns only their own earnings and other income, and their share of the interest income from community property. Need to file my 2011 taxes George reports $26,500 and Sharon reports $34,500. Need to file my 2011 taxes Other separated spouses. Need to file my 2011 taxes    If you and your spouse are separated but do not meet the four conditions discussed earlier under Spouses living apart all year , you must treat your income according to the laws of your state. Need to file my 2011 taxes In some states, income earned after separation but before a decree of divorce continues to be community income. Need to file my 2011 taxes In other states, it is separate income. Need to file my 2011 taxes End of the Community The marital community may end in several ways. Need to file my 2011 taxes When the marital community ends, the community assets (money and property) are divided between the spouses. Need to file my 2011 taxes Similarly, a registered domestic partnership may end in several ways and the community assets must be divided between the registered domestic partners. Need to file my 2011 taxes Death of spouse. Need to file my 2011 taxes    If you own community property and your spouse dies, the total fair market value (FMV) of the community property, including the part that belongs to you, generally becomes the basis of the entire property. Need to file my 2011 taxes For this rule to apply, at least half the value of the community property interest must be includible in your spouse's gross estate, whether or not the estate must file a return (this rule does not apply to registered domestic partners). Need to file my 2011 taxes Example. Need to file my 2011 taxes Bob and Ann owned community property that had a basis of $80,000. Need to file my 2011 taxes When Bob died, his and Ann's community property had an FMV of $100,000. Need to file my 2011 taxes One-half of the FMV of their community interest was includible in Bob's estate. Need to file my 2011 taxes The basis of Ann's half of the property is $50,000 after Bob died (half of the $100,000 FMV). Need to file my 2011 taxes The basis of the other half to Bob's heirs is also $50,000. Need to file my 2011 taxes   For more information about the basis of assets, see Publication 551, Basis of Assets. Need to file my 2011 taxes    The above basis rule does not apply if your spouse died in 2010 and the spouse's executor elected out of the estate tax, in which case section 1022 will apply. Need to file my 2011 taxes See Publication 4895, Tax Treatment of Property Acquired From a Decedent Dying in 2010, for additional information. Need to file my 2011 taxes Divorce or separation. Need to file my 2011 taxes    If spouses divorce or separate, the (equal or unequal) division of community property in connection with the divorce or property settlement does not result in a gain or loss. Need to file my 2011 taxes For registered domestic partners, an unequal division of community property in a property settlement may result in a gain or loss. Need to file my 2011 taxes For information on the tax consequences of the division of property under a property settlement or divorce decree, see Publication 504. Need to file my 2011 taxes   Each spouse (or each registered domestic partner) is taxed on half the community income for the part of the year before the community ends. Need to file my 2011 taxes However, see Spouses living apart all year , earlier. Need to file my 2011 taxes Any income received after the community ends is separate income. Need to file my 2011 taxes This separate income is taxable only to the spouse (or the registered domestic partner) to whom it belongs. Need to file my 2011 taxes   An absolute decree of divorce or annulment ends the marital community in all community property states. Need to file my 2011 taxes A decree of annulment, even though it holds that no valid marriage ever existed, usually does not nullify community property rights arising during the “marriage. Need to file my 2011 taxes ” However, you should check your state law for exceptions. Need to file my 2011 taxes   A decree of legal separation or of separate maintenance may or may not end the marital community. Need to file my 2011 taxes The court issuing the decree may terminate the marital community and divide the property between the spouses. Need to file my 2011 taxes   A separation agreement may divide the community property between you and your spouse. Need to file my 2011 taxes It may provide that this property, along with future earnings and property acquired, will be separate property. Need to file my 2011 taxes This agreement may end the community. Need to file my 2011 taxes   In some states, the marital community ends when the spouses permanently separate, even if there is no formal agreement. Need to file my 2011 taxes Check your state law. Need to file my 2011 taxes   If you are a registered domestic partner, you should check your state law to determine when the community ends. Need to file my 2011 taxes Preparing a Federal Income Tax Return The following discussion does not apply to spouses who meet the conditions under Spouses living apart all year , discussed earlier. Need to file my 2011 taxes Those spouses must report their community income as explained in that discussion. Need to file my 2011 taxes Joint Return Versus Separate Returns Ordinarily, filing a joint return will give you a greater tax advantage than filing a separate return. Need to file my 2011 taxes But in some cases, your combined income tax on separate returns may be less than it would be on a joint return. Need to file my 2011 taxes This discussion concerning joint versus separate returns does not apply to registered domestic partners. Need to file my 2011 taxes The following rules apply if your filing status is married filing separately.

Need to file my 2011 taxes You cannot deduct interest paid on a qualified student loan. Need to file my 2011 taxes You cannot take the education credits. Need to file my 2011 taxes You may have a smaller child tax credit than you would on a joint return. Need to file my 2011 taxes You cannot take the exclusion or credit for adoption expenses in most instances. Need to file my 2011 taxes Figure your tax both on a joint return and on separate returns under the community property laws of your state. Need to file my 2011 taxes You can then compare the tax figured under both methods and use the one that results in less tax. Need to file my 2011 taxes Separate Return Preparation If you file separate returns, you and your spouse must each report half of your combined community income and deductions in addition to your separate income and deductions. Need to file my 2011 taxes Each of you must complete and attach Form 8958 to your Form 1040 showing how you figured the amount you are reporting on your return. Need to file my 2011 taxes On the appropriate lines of your separate Form 1040, list only your share of the income and deductions on the appropriate lines of your separate tax returns (wages, interest, dividends, etc. Need to file my 2011 taxes ). Need to file my 2011 taxes The same reporting rule applies to registered domestic partners. Need to file my 2011 taxes For a discussion of the effect of community property laws on certain items of income, deductions, credits, and other return amounts, see Identifying Income, Deductions, and Credits , earlier. Need to file my 2011 taxes Attach your Form 8958 to your separate return showing how you figured the income, deductions, and federal income tax withheld that each of you reported. Need to file my 2011 taxes Form 8958 is used for married spouses in community property states who choose to file married filing separately. Need to file my 2011 taxes Form 8958 is also used for registered domestic partners who are domiciled in Nevada, Washington, or California. Need to file my 2011 taxes A registered domestic partner in Nevada, Washington, or California must follow state community property laws and report half the combined community income of the individual and his or her registered domestic partner. Need to file my 2011 taxes Extension of time to file. Need to file my 2011 taxes    An extension of time for filing your separate return does not extend the time for filing your spouse's (or your registered domestic partner's) separate return.

Revoked? Reinstated? Learn More

Most tax-exempt organizations are required to file an annual return or notice with the Internal Revenue Service. (See Annual Return Filing Exceptions for a list of organizations that are not required to file.) Section 6033(j) of the Internal Revenue Code automatically revokes the exemption of any organization that fails to satisfy its filing requirement for three consecutive years. The automatic revocation of exemption is effective as of the due date of the third required annual filing or notice. Organizations on the Automatic Revocation of Exemption List (Auto-Revocation List) previously recognized as exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code are no longer eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions under Code section 170.

Contributors and grantors can rely on the Exempt Organizations Select Check (Pub 78 data) page to determine organization deductibility and foundation status, even if the organization no longer appears in the Statistics of Income (SOI) Tax Stats - EO BMF. See Revenue Procedure 2011-33.

Publication of an organization’s name on the Auto-Revocation List serves as notice to donors and others that the organization is no longer eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions under section 170 and that donors and others may not rely on an IRS determination letter dated before the effective date of revocation or on a prior listing in either Exempt Organizations Select Check (Pub. 78 data) or the IRS Business Master File extract for purposes of claiming tax-deductible contributions. Because the list is an official IRS record of organizations that lost their exempt status for failing to file for three consecutive years, an organization whose exempt status is reinstated remains on the list. If, however, you think your organization was erroneously listed as revoked, see our frequently asked questions.

Because of system limitations, the name field may capture only the first few words of a long organizational name. For example, if the organization's full name is XXXXX YYYYY ZZZZZ University, Alumni Association Chapter 214, the name field may only display XXXXX YYYYY ZZZZZ University. You can check Exempt Organizations Select Check (Pub. 78 data) to ensure that an organization is still eligible to receive tax deductible contributions. For best search results, be sure to enter the exact legal name of the organization.
