State taxes free online Resident Aliens Resident aliens are generally taxed in the same way as U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online citizens. State taxes free online This means that their worldwide income is subject to U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online tax and must be reported on their U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online tax return. State taxes free online Income of resident aliens is subject to the graduated tax rates that apply to U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online citizens. State taxes free online Resident aliens use the Tax Table or Tax Computation Worksheets located in the Form 1040 instructions, which apply to U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online citizens. State taxes free online Nonresident Aliens A nonresident alien's income that is subject to U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online income tax must be divided into two categories: Income that is effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States, and Income that is not effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States (discussed under The 30% Tax, later). State taxes free online The difference between these two categories is that effectively connected income, after allowable deductions, is taxed at graduated rates. State taxes free online These are the same rates that apply to U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online citizens and residents. State taxes free online Income that is not effectively connected is taxed at a flat 30% (or lower treaty) rate. State taxes free online If you were formerly a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online citizen or resident alien, these rules may not apply. State taxes free online See Expatriation Tax, later, in this chapter. State taxes free online Trade or Business in the United States Generally, you must be engaged in a trade or business during the tax year to be able to treat income received in that year as effectively connected with that trade or business. State taxes free online Whether you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States depends on the nature of your activities. State taxes free online The discussions that follow will help you determine whether you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States. State taxes free online Personal Services If you perform personal services in the United States at any time during the tax year, you usually are considered engaged in a trade or business in the United States. State taxes free online Certain compensation paid to a nonresident alien by a foreign employer is not included in gross income. State taxes free online For more information, see Services Performed for Foreign Employer in chapter 3. State taxes free online Other Trade or Business Activities Other examples of being engaged in a trade or business in the United States follow. State taxes free online Students and trainees. State taxes free online   You are considered engaged in a trade or business in the United States if you are temporarily present in the United States as a nonimmigrant under an “F,” “J,” “M,” or “Q” visa. State taxes free online A nonresident alien temporarily present in the United States under a “J” visa includes a nonresident alien individual admitted to the United States as an exchange visitor under the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961. State taxes free online The taxable part of any scholarship or fellowship grant that is U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online source income is treated as effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. State taxes free online Business operations. State taxes free online   If you own and operate a business in the United States selling services, products, or merchandise, you are, with certain exceptions, engaged in a trade or business in the United States. State taxes free online Partnerships. State taxes free online   If you are a member of a partnership that at any time during the tax year is engaged in a trade or business in the United States, you are considered to be engaged in a trade or business in the United States. State taxes free online Beneficiary of an estate or trust. State taxes free online   If you are the beneficiary of an estate or trust that is engaged in a trade or business in the United States, you are treated as being engaged in the same trade or business. State taxes free online Trading in stocks, securities, and commodities. State taxes free online   If your only U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online business activity is trading in stocks, securities, or commodities (including hedging transactions) through a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online resident broker or other agent, you are not engaged in a trade or business in the United States. State taxes free online   For transactions in stocks or securities, this applies to any nonresident alien, including a dealer or broker in stocks and securities. State taxes free online   For transactions in commodities, this applies to commodities that are usually traded on an organized commodity exchange and to transactions that are usually carried out at such an exchange. State taxes free online   This discussion does not apply if you have a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online office or other fixed place of business at any time during the tax year through which, or by the direction of which, you carry out your transactions in stocks, securities, or commodities. State taxes free online Trading for a nonresident alien's own account. State taxes free online   You are not engaged in a trade or business in the United States if trading for your own account in stocks, securities, or commodities is your only U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online business activity. State taxes free online This applies even if the trading takes place while you are present in the United States or is done by your employee or your broker or other agent. State taxes free online   This does not apply to trading for your own account if you are a dealer in stocks, securities, or commodities. State taxes free online This does not necessarily mean, however, that as a dealer you are considered to be engaged in a trade or business in the United States. State taxes free online Determine that based on the facts and circumstances in each case or under the rules given above in Trading in stocks, securities, and commodities . State taxes free online Effectively Connected Income If you are engaged in a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online trade or business, all income, gain, or loss for the tax year that you get from sources within the United States (other than certain investment income) is treated as effectively connected income. State taxes free online This applies whether or not there is any connection between the income and the trade or business being carried on in the United States during the tax year. State taxes free online Two tests, described next under Investment Income, determine whether certain items of investment income (such as interest, dividends, and royalties) are treated as effectively connected with that business. State taxes free online In limited circumstances, some kinds of foreign source income may be treated as effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. State taxes free online For a discussion of these rules, see Foreign Income , later. State taxes free online Investment Income Investment income from U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online sources that may or may not be treated as effectively connected with a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online trade or business generally falls into the following three categories. State taxes free online Fixed or determinable income (interest, dividends, rents, royalties, premiums, annuities, etc. State taxes free online ). State taxes free online Gains (some of which are considered capital gains) from the sale or exchange of the following types of property. State taxes free online Timber, coal, or domestic iron ore with a retained economic interest. State taxes free online Patents, copyrights, and similar property on which you receive contingent payments after October 4, 1966. State taxes free online Patents transferred before October 5, 1966. State taxes free online Original issue discount obligations. State taxes free online Capital gains (and losses). State taxes free online Use the two tests, described next, to determine whether an item of U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online source income falling in one of the three categories above and received during the tax year is effectively connected with your U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online trade or business. State taxes free online If the tests indicate that the item of income is effectively connected, you must include it with your other effectively connected income. State taxes free online If the item of income is not effectively connected, include it with all other income discussed under The 30% Tax later, in this chapter. State taxes free online Asset-use test. State taxes free online   This test usually applies to income that is not directly produced by trade or business activities. State taxes free online Under this test, if an item of income is from assets (property) used in, or held for use in, the trade or business in the United States, it is considered effectively connected. State taxes free online   An asset is used in, or held for use in, the trade or business in the United States if the asset is: Held for the principal purpose of promoting the conduct of a trade or business in the United States, Acquired and held in the ordinary course of the trade or business conducted in the United States (for example, an account receivable or note receivable arising from that trade or business), or Otherwise held to meet the present needs of the trade or business in the United States and not its anticipated future needs. State taxes free online Generally, stock of a corporation is not treated as an asset used in, or held for use in, a trade or business in the United States. State taxes free online Business-activities test. State taxes free online   This test usually applies when income, gain, or loss comes directly from the active conduct of the trade or business. State taxes free online The business-activities test is most important when: Dividends or interest are received by a dealer in stocks or securities, Royalties are received in the trade or business of licensing patents or similar property, or Service fees are earned by a servicing business. State taxes free online Under this test, if the conduct of the U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online trade or business was a material factor in producing the income, the income is considered effectively connected. State taxes free online Personal Service Income You usually are engaged in a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online trade or business when you perform personal services in the United States. State taxes free online Personal service income you receive in a tax year in which you are engaged in a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online trade or business is effectively connected with a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online trade or business. State taxes free online Income received in a year other than the year you performed the services is also effectively connected if it would have been effectively connected if received in the year you performed the services. State taxes free online Personal service income includes wages, salaries, commissions, fees, per diem allowances, and employee allowances and bonuses. State taxes free online The income may be paid to you in the form of cash, services, or property. State taxes free online If you are engaged in a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online trade or business only because you perform personal services in the United States during the tax year, income and gains from assets, and gains and losses from the sale or exchange of capital assets are generally not effectively connected with your trade or business. State taxes free online However, if there is a direct economic relationship between your holding of the asset and your trade or business of performing personal services, the income, gain, or loss is effectively connected. State taxes free online Pensions. State taxes free online   If you were a nonresident alien engaged in a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online trade or business after 1986 because you performed personal services in the United States, and you later receive a pension or retirement pay attributable to these services, such payments are effectively connected income in each year you receive them. State taxes free online This is true whether or not you are engaged in a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online trade or business in the year you receive the retirement pay. State taxes free online Transportation Income Transportation income (defined in chapter 2) is effectively connected if you meet both of the following conditions. State taxes free online You had a fixed place of business in the United States involved in earning the income. State taxes free online At least 90% of your U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online source transportation income is attributable to regularly scheduled transportation. State taxes free online “Fixed place of business” generally means a place, site, structure, or other similar facility through which you engage in a trade or business. State taxes free online “Regularly scheduled transportation” means that a ship or aircraft follows a published schedule with repeated sailings or flights at regular intervals between the same points for voyages or flights that begin or end in the United States. State taxes free online This definition applies to both scheduled and chartered air transportation. State taxes free online If you do not meet the two conditions above, the income is not effectively connected and is taxed at a 4% rate. State taxes free online See Transportation Tax, later, in this chapter. State taxes free online Business Profits and Losses and Sales Transactions All profits or losses from U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online sources that are from the operation of a business in the United States are effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. State taxes free online For example, profit from the sale in the United States of inventory property purchased either in this country or in a foreign country is effectively connected trade or business income. State taxes free online A share of U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online source profits or losses of a partnership that is engaged in a trade or business in the United States is also effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. State taxes free online Real Property Gain or Loss Gains and losses from the sale or exchange of U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property interests (whether or not they are capital assets) are taxed as if you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States. State taxes free online You must treat the gain or loss as effectively connected with that trade or business. State taxes free online U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property interest. State taxes free online   This is any interest in real property located in the United States or the U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online Virgin Islands or any interest (other than as a creditor) in a domestic corporation that is a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property holding corporation. State taxes free online Real property includes the following. State taxes free online Land and unsevered natural products of the land, such as growing crops and timber, and mines, wells, and other natural deposits. State taxes free online Improvements on land, including buildings, other permanent structures, and their structural components. State taxes free online Personal property associated with the use of real property, such as equipment used in farming, mining, forestry, or construction or property used in lodging facilities or rented office space, unless the personal property is: Disposed of more than one year before or after the disposition of the real property, or Separately sold to persons unrelated either to the seller or to the buyer of the real property. State taxes free online U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property holding corporation. State taxes free online   A corporation is a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property holding corporation if the fair market value of the corporation's U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property interests are at least 50% of the total fair market value of: The corporation's U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property interests, plus The corporation's interests in real property located outside the United States, plus The corporation's other assets that are used in, or held for use in, a trade or business. State taxes free online   Gain or loss on the sale of the stock in any domestic corporation is taxed as if you are engaged in a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online trade or business unless you establish that the corporation is not a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property holding corporation. State taxes free online   A U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property interest does not include a class of stock of a corporation that is regularly traded on an established securities market, unless you hold more than 5% of the fair market value of that class of stock. State taxes free online An interest in a foreign corporation owning U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property generally is not a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property interest unless the corporation chooses to be treated as a domestic corporation. State taxes free online Qualified investment entities. State taxes free online   Special rules apply to qualified investment entities (QIEs). State taxes free online A QIE is any real estate investment trust (REIT) or any regulated investment company (RIC) that is a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property holding corporation. State taxes free online    Generally, any distribution from a QIE to a shareholder that is attributable to gain from the sale or exchange of a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property interest is treated as a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property gain by the shareholder receiving the distribution. State taxes free online A distribution by a QIE on stock regularly traded on an established securities market in the United States is not treated as gain from the sale or exchange of a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property interest if you did not own more than 5% of that stock at any time during the 1-year period ending on the date of the distribution. State taxes free online A distribution that you do not treat as gain from the sale or exchange of a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property interest is included in your gross income as a regular dividend. State taxes free online Note. State taxes free online Beginning January 1, 2014 (unless extended by legislation), a RIC that is a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property holding corporation will only be treated as a QIE for certain distributions from the RIC that are directly or indirectly attributable to distributions received by the RIC from a REIT. State taxes free online Domestically controlled QIE. State taxes free online   The sale of an interest in a domestically controlled QIE is not the sale of a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property interest. State taxes free online The entity is domestically controlled if at all times during the testing period less than 50% in value of its stock was held, directly or indirectly, by foreign persons. State taxes free online The testing period is the shorter of (a) the 5-year period ending on the date of disposition, or (b) the period during which the entity was in existence. State taxes free online Wash sale. State taxes free online    If you dispose of an interest in a domestically controlled QIE in an applicable wash sale transaction, special rules apply. State taxes free online An applicable wash sale transaction is one in which you: Dispose of an interest in the domestically controlled QIE during the 30-day period before the ex-dividend date of a distribution that you would (but for the disposition) have treated as gain from the sale or exchange of a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property interest, and Acquire, or enter into a contract or option to acquire, a substantially identical interest in that entity during the 61-day period that began on the first day of the 30-day period. State taxes free online If this occurs, you are treated as having gain from the sale or exchange of a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property interest in an amount equal to the distribution made after June 15, 2006, that would have been treated as such gain. State taxes free online This also applies to any substitute dividend payment. State taxes free online   A transaction is not treated as an applicable wash sale transaction if: You actually receive the distribution from the domestically controlled QIE related to the interest disposed of, or acquired, in the transaction, or You dispose of any class of stock in a QIE that is regularly traded on an established securities market in the United States but only if you did not own more than 5% of that class of stock at any time during the 1-year period ending on the date of the distribution. State taxes free online Alternative minimum tax. State taxes free online   There may be a minimum tax on your net gain from the disposition of U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property interests. State taxes free online Figure the amount of this tax, if any, on Form 6251. State taxes free online Withholding of tax. State taxes free online   If you dispose of a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online real property interest, the buyer may have to withhold tax. State taxes free online See the discussion of Tax Withheld on Real Property Sales in chapter 8. State taxes free online Foreign Income You must treat three kinds of foreign source income as effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States if: You have an office or other fixed place of business in the United States to which the income can be attributed, That office or place of business is a material factor in producing the income, and The income is produced in the ordinary course of the trade or business carried on through that office or other fixed place of business. State taxes free online 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. State taxes free online The three kinds of foreign source income are listed below. State taxes free online Rents and royalties for the use of, or for the privilege of using, intangible personal property located outside the United States or from any interest in such property. State taxes free online Included are rents or royalties for the use, or for the privilege of using, outside the United States, 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 United States. State taxes free online Dividends, interest, or amounts received for the provision of a guarantee of indebtedness issued after September 27, 2010, from the active conduct of a banking, financing, or similar business in the United States. State taxes free online A substitute dividend or interest payment received under a securities lending transaction or a sale-repurchase transaction is treated the same as the amounts received on the transferred security. State taxes free online Income, gain, or loss from the sale outside the United States, through the U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online office or other fixed place of business, 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. State taxes free online Item (3) will not apply if you sold the property for use, consumption, or disposition outside the United States and an office or other fixed place of business in a foreign country was a material factor in the sale. State taxes free online Any foreign source income that is equivalent to any item of income described above is treated as effectively connected with a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online trade or business. State taxes free online For example, foreign source interest and dividend equivalents are treated as U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online effectively connected income if the income is derived by a foreign person in the active conduct of a banking, financing, or similar business within the United States. State taxes free online Tax on Effectively Connected Income Income you receive during the tax year that is effectively connected with your trade or business in the United States is, after allowable deductions, taxed at the rates that apply to U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online citizens and residents. State taxes free online Generally, you can receive effectively connected income only if you are a nonresident alien engaged in trade or business in the United States during the tax year. State taxes free online However, income you receive from the sale or exchange of property, the performance of services, or any other transaction in another tax year is treated as effectively connected in that year if it would have been effectively connected in the year the transaction took place or you performed the services. State taxes free online Example. State taxes free online Ted Richards, a nonresident alien, entered the United States in August 2012, to perform personal services in the U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online office of his overseas employer. State taxes free online He worked in the U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online office until December 25, 2012, but did not leave this country until January 11, 2013. State taxes free online On January 8, 2013, he received his final paycheck for services performed in the United States during 2012. State taxes free online All of Ted's income during his stay here is U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online source income. State taxes free online During 2012, Ted was engaged in the trade or business of performing personal services in the United States. State taxes free online Therefore, all amounts paid to him in 2012 for services performed in the United States during 2012 are effectively connected with that trade or business during 2012. State taxes free online The salary payment Ted received in January 2013 is U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online source income to him in 2013. State taxes free online It is effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States because he was engaged in a trade or business in the United States during 2012 when he performed the services that earned the income. State taxes free online Real property income. State taxes free online   You may be able to choose to treat all income from real property as effectively connected. State taxes free online See Income From Real Property , later, in this chapter. State taxes free online The 30% Tax Tax at a 30% (or lower treaty) rate applies to certain items of income or gains from U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online sources but only if the items are not effectively connected with your U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online trade or business. State taxes free online Fixed or Determinable Income The 30% (or lower treaty) rate applies to the gross amount of U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online source fixed or determinable annual or periodic gains, profits, or income. State taxes free online Income is fixed when it is paid in amounts known ahead of time. State taxes free online Income is determinable whenever there is a basis for figuring the amount to be paid. State taxes free online Income can be periodic if it is paid from time to time. State taxes free online It does not have to be paid annually or at regular intervals. State taxes free online Income can be determinable or periodic even if the length of time during which the payments are made is increased or decreased. State taxes free online Items specifically included as fixed or determinable income are interest (other than original issue discount), dividends, dividend equivalent payments (defined in chapter 2), rents, premiums, annuities, salaries, wages, and other compensation. State taxes free online A substitute dividend or interest payment received under a securities lending transaction or a sale-repurchase transaction is treated the same as the amounts received on the transferred security. State taxes free online Other items of income, such as royalties, also may be subject to the 30% tax. State taxes free online Some fixed or determinable income may be exempt from U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online tax. State taxes free online See chapter 3 if you are not sure whether the income is taxable. State taxes free online Original issue discount (OID). State taxes free online   If you sold, exchanged, or received a payment on a bond or other debt instrument that was issued at a discount after March 31, 1972, all or part of the original issue discount (OID) (other than portfolio interest) may be subject to the 30% tax. State taxes free online The amount of OID is the difference between the stated redemption price at maturity and the issue price of the debt instrument. State taxes free online The 30% tax applies in the following circumstances. State taxes free online You received a payment on a debt instrument. State taxes free online In this case, the amount of OID subject to tax is the OID that accrued while you held the debt instrument minus the OID previously taken into account. State taxes free online But the tax on the OID cannot be more than the payment minus the tax on the interest payment on the debt instrument. State taxes free online You sold or exchanged the debt instrument. State taxes free online The amount of OID subject to tax is the OID that accrued while you held the debt instrument minus the amount already taxed in (1) above. State taxes free online   Report on your return the amount of OID shown on Form 1042-S, Foreign Person's U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online Source Income Subject to Withholding, if you bought the debt instrument at original issue. State taxes free online However, you must recompute your proper share of OID shown on Form 1042-S if any of the following apply. State taxes free online You bought the debt instrument at a premium or paid an acquisition premium. State taxes free online The debt instrument is a stripped bond or a stripped coupon (including zero coupon instruments backed by U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online Treasury securities). State taxes free online The debt instrument is a contingent payment or inflation-indexed debt instrument. State taxes free online For the definition of premium and acquisition premium and instructions on how to recompute OID, get Publication 1212. State taxes free online   If you held a bond or other debt instrument that was issued at a discount before April 1, 1972, contact the IRS for further information. State taxes free online See chapter 12. State taxes free online Gambling Winnings In general, nonresident aliens are subject to the 30% tax on the gross proceeds from gambling won in the United States if that income is not effectively connected with a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online trade or business and is not exempted by treaty. State taxes free online However, no tax is imposed on nonbusiness gambling income a nonresident alien wins playing blackjack, baccarat, craps, roulette, or big-6 wheel in the United States. State taxes free online Nonresident aliens are taxed at graduated rates on net gambling income won in the United States that is effectively connected with a U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online trade or business. State taxes free online Social Security Benefits A nonresident alien must include 85% of any U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online social security benefit (and the social security equivalent part of a tier 1 railroad retirement benefit) in U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online source fixed or determinable annual or periodic income. State taxes free online Social security benefits include monthly retirement, survivor, and disability benefits. State taxes free online This income is exempt under some tax treaties. State taxes free online See Table 1 in Publication 901, U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online Tax Treaties, for a list of tax treaties that exempt U. State taxes free online S. State taxes free online social security benefits from U. State taxes free online S.
