Turbotax 2006 Generally, you are a bona fide resident of one of these possessions (the relevant possession) if, during the tax year, you: Meet the presence test, Do not have a tax home outside the relevant possession, and Do not have a closer connection to the United States or to a foreign country than to the relevant possession. Turbotax 2006 Special rule for members of the U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 Armed Forces. Turbotax 2006   If you are a member of the U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 Armed Forces who qualified as a bona fide resident of the relevant possession in an earlier tax year, your absence from that possession during the current tax year in compliance with military orders will not affect your status as a bona fide resident. Turbotax 2006 Likewise, being in a possession solely in compliance with military orders will not qualify you for bona fide residency. Turbotax 2006 Also see the special income source rule for members of the U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 Armed Forces in chapter 2, under Compensation for Labor or Personal Services . Turbotax 2006 Special rule for civilian spouse of active duty member of the U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 Armed Forces. Turbotax 2006   If you are the civilian spouse of an active duty servicemember, under Military Spouses Residency Relief Act (MSRRA) you can choose to keep your prior residence or domicile for tax purposes (tax residence) when accompanying the servicemember spouse, who is relocating under military orders, to a new military duty station in one of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, or a U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 possession. Turbotax 2006 Before relocating, you and your spouse must have the same tax residence. Turbotax 2006 If you are a civilian spouse and choose to keep your prior tax residence after such relocation, the source of income for services performed (for example, wages, salaries, tips, or self-employment) by you is considered to be (the jurisdiction of) the prior tax residence. Turbotax 2006 As a result, the amount of income tax withholding (from Form(s) W-2, Wage and Tax Statement) that you are able to claim on your federal return, as well as the need to file a state or U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 possession return, may be affected. Turbotax 2006 For more information, consult with state, local, or U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 possession tax authorities regarding your tax obligations under MSRRA. Turbotax 2006 Presence Test If you are a U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 citizen or resident alien, you will satisfy the presence test for the entire tax year if you meet one of the following conditions. Turbotax 2006 You were present in the relevant possession for at least 183 days during the tax year. Turbotax 2006 You were present in the relevant possession for at least 549 days during the 3-year period that includes the current tax year and the 2 immediately preceding tax years. Turbotax 2006 During each year of the 3-year period, you must be present in the relevant possession for at least 60 days. Turbotax 2006 You were present in the United States for no more than 90 days during the tax year. Turbotax 2006 You had earned income in the United States of no more than a total of $3,000 and were present for more days in the relevant possession than in the United States during the tax year.

Turbotax 2006 You had no significant connection to the United States during the tax year. Turbotax 2006 Special rule for nonresident aliens. Turbotax 2006   Conditions (1) through (5) above do not apply to nonresident aliens of the United States. Turbotax 2006 Instead, nonresident aliens must meet the substantial presence test discussed in chapter 1 of Publication 519. Turbotax 2006 In that discussion, substitute the name of the possession for “United States” and “U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 ” wherever they appear. Turbotax 2006 Disregard the discussion in that chapter about a Closer Connection to a Foreign Country. Turbotax 2006 Days of Presence in the United States or Relevant Possession Generally, you are treated as being present in the United States or in the relevant possession on any day that you are physically present in that location at any time during the day. Turbotax 2006 Days of presence in a possession. Turbotax 2006   You are considered to be present in the relevant possession on any of the following days. Turbotax 2006 Any day you are physically present in that possession at any time during the day. Turbotax 2006 Any day you are outside of the relevant possession in order to receive, or to accompany any of the following family members to receive, qualifying medical treatment (see Qualifying Medical Treatment , later). Turbotax 2006 Your parent. Turbotax 2006 Your spouse. Turbotax 2006 Your child, who is your son, daughter, stepson, or stepdaughter. Turbotax 2006 This includes an adopted child or child lawfully placed with you for legal adoption. Turbotax 2006 This also includes a foster child who is placed with you by an authorized placement agency or by judgment, decree, or other order of any court of competent jurisdiction. Turbotax 2006 Any day you are outside the relevant possession because you leave or are unable to return to the relevant possession during any: 14-day period within which a major disaster occurs in the relevant possession for which a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) notice of a federal declaration of a major disaster is issued in the Federal Register, or Period for which a mandatory evacuation order is in effect for the geographic area in the relevant possession in which your main home is located. Turbotax 2006   If, during a single day, you are physically present: In the United States and in the relevant possession, that day is considered a day of presence in the relevant possession; or In two possessions, that day is considered a day of presence in the possession where your tax home is located (see Tax Home , later). Turbotax 2006 Days of presence in the United States. Turbotax 2006   You are considered to be present in the United States on any day that you are physically present in the United States at any time during the day. Turbotax 2006 However, do not count the following days as days of presence in the United States. Turbotax 2006 Any day you are temporarily present in the United States in order to receive, or to accompany a parent, spouse, or child who is receiving, qualifying medical treatment. Turbotax 2006 “Child” is defined under item 2c earlier. Turbotax 2006 “Qualifying medical treatment” is defined later. Turbotax 2006 Any day you are temporarily present in the United States because you leave or are unable to return to the relevant possession during any: 14-day period within which a major disaster occurs in the relevant possession for which a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) notice of a federal declaration of a major disaster is issued in the Federal Register, or Period for which a mandatory evacuation order is in effect for the geographic area in the relevant possession in which your main home is located. Turbotax 2006 Any day you are in the United States for less than 24 hours when you are traveling between two places outside the United States. Turbotax 2006 Any day you are temporarily present in the United States as a professional athlete to compete in a charitable sports event (defined later). Turbotax 2006 Any day you are temporarily in the United States as a student (defined later). Turbotax 2006 Any day you are in the United States serving as an elected representative of the relevant possession, or serving full time as an elected or appointed official or employee of the government of that possession (or any of its political subdivisions). Turbotax 2006 Qualifying Medical Treatment Such treatment is generally provided by (or under the supervision of) a physician for an illness, injury, impairment, or physical or mental condition. Turbotax 2006 The treatment generally involves: Any period of inpatient care that requires an overnight stay in a hospital or hospice, and any period immediately before or after that inpatient care to the extent it is medically necessary, or Any temporary period of inpatient care in a residential medical care facility for medically necessary rehabilitation services. Turbotax 2006 With respect to each qualifying medical treatment, you must prepare (or obtain) and maintain documentation supporting your claim that such treatment meets the criteria to be considered days of presence in the relevant possession. Turbotax 2006 You must be able to produce this documentation within 30 days if requested by the IRS or tax administrator for the relevant possession. Turbotax 2006 You must keep the following documentation. Turbotax 2006 Records that provide: The patient's name and relationship to you (if the medical treatment is provided to a person you accompany); The name and address of the hospital, hospice, or residential medical care facility where the medical treatment was provided; The name, address, and telephone number of the physician who provided the medical treatment; The date(s) on which the medical treatment was provided; and Receipt(s) of payment for the medical treatment. Turbotax 2006 Signed certification by the providing or supervising physician that the medical treatment met the requirements for being qualified medical treatment, and setting forth: The patient's name, A reasonably detailed description of the medical treatment provided by (or under the supervision of) the physician, The dates on which the medical treatment was provided, and The medical facts that support the physician's certification and determination that the treatment was medically necessary. Turbotax 2006 Charitable Sports Event A charitable sports event is one that meets all of the following conditions. Turbotax 2006 The main purpose is to benefit a qualified charitable organization. Turbotax 2006 The entire net proceeds go to charity. Turbotax 2006 Volunteers perform substantially all the work. Turbotax 2006 In figuring the days of presence in the United States, you can exclude only the days on which you actually competed in the charitable sports event. Turbotax 2006 You cannot exclude the days on which you were in the United States to practice for the event, to perform promotional or other activities related to the event, or to travel between events. Turbotax 2006 Student To qualify as a student, you must be, during some part of each of any 5 calendar months during the calendar year: A full-time student at a school that has a regular teaching staff, course of study, and regularly enrolled body of students in attendance, or A student taking a full-time, on-farm training course given by a school described in (1) above or by a state, county, or local government agency. Turbotax 2006 The 5 calendar months do not have to be consecutive. Turbotax 2006 Full-time student. Turbotax 2006   A full-time student is a person who is enrolled for the number of hours or courses the school considers to be full-time attendance. Turbotax 2006 However, school attendance exclusively at night is not considered full-time attendance. Turbotax 2006 School. Turbotax 2006   The term “school” includes elementary schools, middle schools, junior and senior high schools, colleges, universities, and technical, trade, and mechanical schools. Turbotax 2006 It does not include on-the-job training courses, correspondence schools, and schools offering courses only through the Internet. Turbotax 2006 Significant Connection One way in which you can meet the presence test is to have no significant connection to the United States during the tax year. Turbotax 2006 This section looks at the factors that determine if a significant connection exists. Turbotax 2006 You are treated as having a significant connection to the United States if you: Have a permanent home in the United States, Are currently registered to vote in any political subdivision of the United States, or Have a spouse or child (see item 2c under Days of presence in a possession , earlier) who is under age 18 whose main home is in the United States, other than: A child who is in the United States because he or she is the child of divorced or legally separated parents and is living with a custodial parent under a custodial decree or multiple support agreement, or A child who is in the United States as a student. Turbotax 2006 For the purpose of determining if you have a significant connection to the United States, the term “spouse” does not include a spouse from whom you are legally separated under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance. Turbotax 2006 Permanent home. Turbotax 2006   A permanent home generally includes an accommodation such as a house, an apartment, or a furnished room that is either owned or rented by you or your spouse. Turbotax 2006 The dwelling unit must be available at all times, continuously, not only for short stays. Turbotax 2006 Exception for rental property. Turbotax 2006   If you or your spouse own the dwelling unit and at any time during the tax year it is rented to someone else at fair rental value, it will be considered your permanent home only if you or your spouse use that property for personal purposes for more than the greater of: 14 days, or 10% of the number of days during that tax year that the property is rented to others at a fair rental value. Turbotax 2006   You are treated as using rental property for personal purposes on any day the property is not being rented to someone else at fair rental value for the entire day. Turbotax 2006   A day of personal use of a dwelling unit is also any day that the unit is used by any of the following persons. Turbotax 2006 You or any other person who has an interest in it, unless you rent it to another owner as his or her main home under a shared equity financing agreement. Turbotax 2006 A member of your family or a member of the family of any other person who has an interest in it, unless the family member uses the dwelling unit as his or her main home and pays a fair rental price. Turbotax 2006 Family includes only brothers and sisters, half-brothers and half-sisters, spouses, ancestors (parents, grandparents, etc. Turbotax 2006 ), and lineal descendants (children, grandchildren, etc. Turbotax 2006 ). Turbotax 2006 Anyone under an arrangement that lets you use some other dwelling unit. Turbotax 2006 Anyone at less than a fair rental price. Turbotax 2006   However, any day you spend working substantially full time repairing and maintaining (not improving) your property is not counted as a day of personal use. Turbotax 2006 Whether your property is used mainly for this purpose is determined in light of all the facts and circumstances, such as: The amount of time you devote to repair and maintenance work, How often during the tax year you perform repair and maintenance work on this property, and The presence and activities of companions. Turbotax 2006   See Publication 527, Residential Rental Property, for more information about personal use of a dwelling unit. Turbotax 2006 Example—significant connection. Turbotax 2006 Ann Green, a U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 citizen, is a sales representative for a company based in Guam. Turbotax 2006 Ann lives with her spouse and young children in their house in Guam, where she is also registered to vote. Turbotax 2006 Her business travel requires her to spend 120 days in the United States and another 120 days in foreign countries. Turbotax 2006 When traveling on business, Ann generally stays at hotels but sometimes stays with her brother, who lives in the United States. Turbotax 2006 Ann's stays are always of short duration and she asks her brother's permission to stay with him. Turbotax 2006 Her brother's house is not her permanent home, nor does she have any other accommodations in the United States that would be considered her permanent home. Turbotax 2006 Ann satisfies the presence test because she has no significant connection to the United States. Turbotax 2006 Example—presence test. Turbotax 2006 Eric and Wanda Brown live for part of the year in a condominium, which they own, in the CNMI. Turbotax 2006 They also own a house in Maine where they live for 120 days every year to be near their grown children and grandchildren. Turbotax 2006 The Browns are retired and their only income is from pension payments, dividends, interest, and social security benefits. Turbotax 2006 In 2013, they spent only 175 days in the CNMI because of a 70-day vacation to Europe and Asia. Turbotax 2006 Thus, in 2013, the Browns were not present in the CNMI for at least 183 days, were present in the United States for more than 90 days, and had a significant connection to the United States because of their permanent home. Turbotax 2006 However, the Browns still satisfied the presence test with respect to the CNMI because they had no earned income in the United States and were physically present for more days in the CNMI than in the United States. Turbotax 2006 Tax Home You will have met the tax home test if you did not have a tax home outside the relevant possession during any part of the tax year. Turbotax 2006 Your tax home is your regular or main place of business, employment, or post of duty regardless of where you maintain your family home. Turbotax 2006 If you do not have a regular or main place of business because of the nature of your work, then your tax home is the place where you regularly live. Turbotax 2006 If you do not fit either of these categories, you are considered an itinerant and your tax home is wherever you work. Turbotax 2006 Exceptions There are some special rules regarding tax home that provide exceptions to the general rule stated above. Turbotax 2006 Students and Government Officials Disregard the following days when determining whether you have a tax home outside the relevant possession. Turbotax 2006 Days you were temporarily in the United States as a student (see Student under Days of Presence in the United States or Relevant Possession, earlier). Turbotax 2006 Days you were in the United States serving as an elected representative of the relevant possession, or serving full time as an elected or appointed official or employee of the government of that possession (or any of its political subdivisions). Turbotax 2006 Seafarers You will not be considered to have a tax home outside the relevant possession solely because you are employed on a ship or other seafaring vessel that is predominantly used in local and international waters. Turbotax 2006 For this purpose, a vessel is considered to be predominantly used in local and international waters if, during the tax year, the total amount of time it is used in international waters and in the waters within 3 miles of the relevant possession exceeds the total amount of time it is used in the territorial waters of the United States, another possession, or any foreign country. Turbotax 2006 Example. Turbotax 2006 In 2013, Sean Silverman, a U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 citizen, was employed by a fishery and spent 250 days at sea on a fishing vessel. Turbotax 2006 When not at sea, Sean lived with his spouse at a house they own in American Samoa. Turbotax 2006 The fishing vessel on which Sean works departs and arrives at various ports in American Samoa, other possessions, and foreign countries, but was in international or American Samoa's local waters for 225 days. Turbotax 2006 For purposes of determining bona fide residency of American Samoa, Sean will not be considered to have a tax home outside that possession solely because of his employment on board the fishing vessel. Turbotax 2006 Year of Move If you are moving to or from a possession during the year, you may still be able to meet the tax home test for that year. Turbotax 2006 See Special Rules in the Year of a Move , later in this chapter. Turbotax 2006 Closer Connection You will have met the closer connection test if, during any part of the tax year, you do not have a closer connection to the United States or a foreign country than to the relevant U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 possession. Turbotax 2006 You will be considered to have a closer connection to a possession than to the United States or to a foreign country if you have maintained more significant contacts with the possession(s) than with the United States or foreign country. Turbotax 2006 In determining if you have maintained more significant contacts with the relevant possession, the facts and circumstances to be considered include, but are not limited to, the following. Turbotax 2006 The location of your permanent home. Turbotax 2006 The location of your family. Turbotax 2006 The location of personal belongings, such as automobiles, furniture, clothing, and jewelry owned by you and your family. Turbotax 2006 The location of social, political, cultural, professional, or religious organizations with which you have a current relationship. Turbotax 2006 The location where you conduct your routine personal banking activities. Turbotax 2006 The location where you conduct business activities (other than those that go into determining your tax home). Turbotax 2006 The location of the jurisdiction in which you hold a driver's license. Turbotax 2006 The location of the jurisdiction in which you vote. Turbotax 2006 The location of charitable organizations to which you contribute. Turbotax 2006 The country of residence you designate on forms and documents. Turbotax 2006 The types of official forms and documents you file, such as Form W-8BEN, Certificate of Foreign Status of Beneficial Owner for United States Tax Withholding and Reporting (Individuals), or Form W-9, Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification. Turbotax 2006 Your connections to the relevant possession will be compared to the total of your connections with the United States and foreign countries. Turbotax 2006 Your answers to the questions on Form 8898, Part III, will help establish the jurisdiction to which you have a closer connection. Turbotax 2006 Example—closer connection to the United States. Turbotax 2006 Marcos Reyes, a U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 citizen, moved to Puerto Rico in 2013 to start an investment consulting and venture capital business. Turbotax 2006 His spouse and two teenage children remained in California to allow the children to complete high school. Turbotax 2006 He traveled back to the United States regularly to see his spouse and children, to engage in business activities, and to take vacations. Turbotax 2006 Marcos had an apartment available for his full-time use in Puerto Rico, but remained a joint owner of the residence in California where his spouse and children lived. Turbotax 2006 Marcos and his family had automobiles and personal belongings such as furniture, clothing, and jewelry located at both residences. Turbotax 2006 Although Marcos was a member of the Puerto Rico Chamber of Commerce, he also belonged to and had current relationships with social, political, cultural, and religious organizations in California. Turbotax 2006 Marcos received mail in California, including bank and brokerage statements and credit card bills. Turbotax 2006 He conducted his personal banking activities in California. Turbotax 2006 He held a California driver's license and was also registered to vote there. Turbotax 2006 Based on all of the particular facts and circumstances pertaining to Marcos, he was not a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico in 2013 because he had a closer connection to the United States than to Puerto Rico. Turbotax 2006 Closer connection to another possession. Turbotax 2006   Generally, possessions are not treated as foreign countries. Turbotax 2006 Therefore, a closer connection to a possession other than the relevant possession will not be treated as a closer connection to a foreign country. Turbotax 2006 Example—tax home and closer connection to possession. Turbotax 2006 Pearl Blackmon, a U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 citizen, is a permanent employee of a hotel in Guam, but works only during the tourist season. Turbotax 2006 For the remainder of each year, Pearl lives with her spouse and children in the CNMI, where she has no outside employment. Turbotax 2006 Most of Pearl's personal belongings, including her automobile, are located in the CNMI. Turbotax 2006 She is registered to vote in, and has a driver's license issued by, the CNMI. Turbotax 2006 She does her personal banking in the CNMI and routinely lists her CNMI address as her permanent address on forms and documents. Turbotax 2006 Pearl satisfies the presence test with respect to both Guam and the CNMI. Turbotax 2006 She satisfies the tax home test with respect to Guam, because her regular place of business is in Guam. Turbotax 2006 Pearl satisfies the closer connection test with respect to both Guam and the CNMI, because she does not have a closer connection to the United States or to any foreign country. Turbotax 2006 Pearl is considered a bona fide resident of Guam, the location of her tax home. Turbotax 2006 Exception for Year of Move If you are moving to or from a possession during the year, you may still be able to meet the closer connection test for that year. Turbotax 2006 See Special Rules in the Year of a Move , next. Turbotax 2006 Special Rules in the Year of a Move If you are moving to or from a possession during the year, you may still be able to meet the tax home and closer connection tests for that year. Turbotax 2006 Year of Moving to a Possession You will satisfy the tax home and closer connection tests in the tax year of changing your residence to the relevant possession if you meet all of the following. Turbotax 2006 You have not been a bona fide resident of the relevant possession in any of the 3 tax years immediately preceding your move. Turbotax 2006 In the year of the move, you do not have a tax home outside the relevant possession or a closer connection to the United States or a foreign country than to the relevant possession during any of the last 183 days of the tax year. Turbotax 2006 You are a bona fide resident of the relevant possession for each of the 3 tax years immediately following your move. Turbotax 2006 Example. Turbotax 2006 Dwight Wood, a U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 citizen, files returns on a calendar year basis. Turbotax 2006 He lived in the United States from January 2007 through May 2013. Turbotax 2006 In June 2013 he moved to the USVI, purchased a house, and accepted a permanent job with a local employer. Turbotax 2006 From July 1 through December 31, 2013 (more than 183 days), Dwight's principal place of business was in the USVI and, during that time, he did not have a closer connection to the United States or a foreign country than to the USVI. Turbotax 2006 If he is a bona fide resident of the USVI during all of 2014 through 2016, he will satisfy the tax home and closer connection tests for 2013. Turbotax 2006 If Dwight also satisfies the presence test in 2013, he will be considered a bona fide resident of the USVI for the entire 2013 tax year. Turbotax 2006 Year of Moving From a Possession In the year you cease to be a bona fide resident of American Samoa, the CNMI, Guam, or the USVI, you will satisfy the tax home and closer connection tests with respect to the relevant possession if you meet all of the following. Turbotax 2006 You have been a bona fide resident of the relevant possession for each of the 3 tax years immediately preceding your change of residence. Turbotax 2006 In the year of the move, you do not have a tax home outside the relevant possession or a closer connection to the United States or a foreign country than to the relevant possession during any of the first 183 days of the tax year. Turbotax 2006 You are not a bona fide resident of the relevant possession for any of the 3 tax years immediately following your move. Turbotax 2006 Example. Turbotax 2006 Jean Aspen, a U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 citizen, files returns on a calendar year basis. Turbotax 2006 From January 2010 through December 2012, Jean was a bona fide resident of American Samoa. Turbotax 2006 Jean continued to live there until September 6, 2013, when she accepted new employment and moved to Hawaii. Turbotax 2006 Jean's principal place of business from January 1 through September 5, 2013 (more than 183 days), was in American Samoa, and during that period Jean did not have a closer connection to the United States or a foreign country than to American Samoa. Turbotax 2006 If Jean continues to live and work in Hawaii for the rest of 2013 and throughout years 2014 through 2016, she will satisfy the tax home and closer connection tests for 2013 with respect to American Samoa. Turbotax 2006 If Jean also satisfies the presence test in 2013, she will be considered a bona fide resident for the entire 2013 tax year. Turbotax 2006 Puerto Rico You will be considered a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico for the part of the tax year preceding the date on which you move if you: Are a U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 citizen, Are a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico for at least 2 tax years immediately preceding the tax year of the move, Cease to be a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico during the tax year, Cease to have a tax home in Puerto Rico during the tax year, and Have a closer connection to Puerto Rico than to the United States or a foreign country throughout the part of the tax year preceding the date on which you cease to have a tax home in Puerto Rico. Turbotax 2006 Example. Turbotax 2006 Randy White, a U. Turbotax 2006 S. Turbotax 2006 citizen, files returns on a calendar year basis. Turbotax 2006 For all of 2011 and 2012, Randy was a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico. Turbotax 2006 From January through April 2013, Randy continued to reside and maintain his principal place of business in and closer connection to Puerto Rico.
