Taxact2011online 10. Taxact2011online   Employees of Foreign Governments and International Organizations Table of Contents Exemption Under Tax Treaty Exemption Under U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online Tax LawCertification. Taxact2011online Employees of foreign governments (including foreign municipalities) have two ways to get exemption of their governmental wages from U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online income tax: By a provision in a tax treaty or consular convention between the United States and their country, or By meeting the requirements of U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online tax law. Taxact2011online Employees of international organizations can exempt their wages either by a provision, if one exists, in the international agreement creating the international organization, or by meeting the requirements of U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online tax law. Taxact2011online The exemption discussed in this chapter applies only to pay received for services performed for a foreign government or international organization. Taxact2011online Other U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online income received by persons who qualify for this exemption may be fully taxable or given favorable treatment under an applicable tax treaty provision. Taxact2011online The proper treatment of this kind of income (interest, dividends, etc. Taxact2011online ) is discussed earlier in this publication. Taxact2011online Exemption Under Tax Treaty If you are from a country that has a tax treaty with the United States, you should first look at the treaty to see if there is a provision that exempts your income. Taxact2011online The income of U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online citizens and resident aliens working for foreign governments usually is not exempt. Taxact2011online However, in a few instances, the income of a U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online citizen with dual citizenship may qualify. Taxact2011online Often the exemption is limited to the income of persons who also are nationals of the foreign country involved. Taxact2011online Exemption Under U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online Tax Law Employees of foreign governments who do not qualify under a tax treaty provision and employees of international organizations may qualify for exemption by meeting the following requirements of U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online tax law. Taxact2011online The exemption under U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online tax law applies only to current employees and not to former employees. Taxact2011online Pensions received by former employees living in the United States do not qualify for the exemption discussed here. Taxact2011online Employees of foreign governments. Taxact2011online   If you are not a U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online citizen, or if you are a U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online citizen but also a citizen of the Philippines, and you work for a foreign government in the United States, your foreign government salary is exempt from U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online tax if you perform services similar to those performed by U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online government employees in that foreign country and that foreign government grants an equivalent exemption to U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online government employees. Taxact2011online Certification. Taxact2011online   To qualify for the exemption under U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online tax law, either the Department of State must certify that you perform services similar to those performed by employees of the government of the United States in foreign countries and that your foreign government employer grants an equivalent exemption to U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online government employees performing similar services in its country or you must establish those facts. Taxact2011online However, see Aliens who keep immigrant status , later, for a special rule that may affect your qualifying for this exemption. Taxact2011online Employees of international organizations. Taxact2011online   If you work for an international organization in the United States and you are not a U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online citizen (or you are a U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online citizen but are also a citizen of the Philippines), your salary from that organization is exempt from U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online tax. Taxact2011online However, see Aliens who keep immigrant status , later, for a special rule that may affect your qualifying for this exemption. Taxact2011online   An international organization is an organization designated by the President of the United States through Executive Order to qualify for the privileges, exemptions, and immunities provided in the International Organizations Immunities Act. Taxact2011online   You should find out if you have been made known to, and have been accepted by, the Secretary of State as an officer or an employee of that organization, or if you have been designated by the Secretary of State, before formal notification and acceptance, as a prospective officer or employee. Taxact2011online   If you are claiming exemption, you should know the number of the Executive Order covering the international organization and should have some written evidence of your acceptance or designation by the Secretary of State. Taxact2011online   The exemption is denied when, because the Secretary of State determines your presence in the United States is no longer desirable, you leave the United States (or after a reasonable time allowed for leaving the United States). Taxact2011online The exemption is also denied when a foreign country does not allow similar exemptions to U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online citizens. Taxact2011online Then the Secretary of State can withdraw the privileges, exemptions, and immunities from the nationals of that foreign country. Taxact2011online Aliens who keep immigrant status. Taxact2011online   If you file the waiver provided by section 247(b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (USCIS Form I-508) to keep your immigrant status (green card), you no longer qualify for the exemption from U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online tax under U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online tax law from the date of filing the waiver with the Attorney General. Taxact2011online   However, you do not lose the exemption if you file the waiver, and meet either of the following conditions. Taxact2011online You are exempt from U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online tax under an income tax treaty, consular agreement, or international agreement between the United States and your foreign government employer. Taxact2011online You work for an international organization and the international organization agreement creating the international organization provides that alien employees are exempt from U. Taxact2011online S. Taxact2011online income tax. Taxact2011online Two international organizations that have such a provision are the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (World Bank).
