Alivio Tributario en Situaciones de Desastre para Personas y Negocios

English

Las provisiones especiales de impuesto podrían ayudar a los contribuyentes a recuperarse financieramente del impacto de un desastre, especialmente si el Presidente de los Estados Unidos declara su localidad como una Zona de Desastre. Dependiendo de las circunstancias, el IRS puede otorgar tiempo adicional para presentar la declaración federal y pagar los impuestos. Tanto los individuos como los negocios dentro de una zona designada por el Presidente como Zona de Desastre pueden obtener su reembolso más rápido reclamando las pérdidas relacionadas con el desastre en su declaración de impuestos para el año anterior, presentando una declaración enmendada.

Turbotax 2011 free edition Introduction If you did not pay enough tax, either through withholding or by making timely estimated tax payments, you will have underpaid your estimated tax and may have to pay a penalty. Turbotax 2011 free edition You may understand this chapter better if you can refer to a copy of your latest federal income tax return. Turbotax 2011 free edition No penalty. Turbotax 2011 free edition   Generally, you will not have to pay a penalty for 2013 if any of the following apply. Turbotax 2011 free edition The total of your withholding and timely estimated tax payments was at least as much as your 2012 tax. Turbotax 2011 free edition (See Special rules for certain individuals for higher income taxpayers and farmers and fishermen. Turbotax 2011 free edition ) The tax balance due on your 2013 return is no more than 10% of your total 2013 tax, and you paid all required estimated tax payments on time. Turbotax 2011 free edition Your total tax for 2013 (defined later) minus your withholding is less than $1,000. Turbotax 2011 free edition You did not have a tax liability for 2012. Turbotax 2011 free edition You did not have any withholding taxes and your current year tax (less any household employment taxes) is less than $1,000. Turbotax 2011 free edition IRS can figure the penalty for you. Turbotax 2011 free edition   If you think you owe the penalty, but you do not want to figure it yourself when you file your tax return, you may not have to. Turbotax 2011 free edition Generally, the IRS will figure the penalty for you and send you a bill. Turbotax 2011 free edition   You only need to figure your penalty in the following three situations. Turbotax 2011 free edition You are requesting a waiver of part, but not all, of the penalty. Turbotax 2011 free edition You are using the annualized income installment method to figure the penalty. Turbotax 2011 free edition You are treating the federal income tax withheld from your income as paid on the dates actually withheld. Turbotax 2011 free edition However, if these situations do not apply to you, and you think you can lower or eliminate your penalty, complete Form 2210 or Form 2210-F and attach it to your return. Turbotax 2011 free edition See Form 2210 , later. Turbotax 2011 free edition Topics - This chapter discusses: The general rule for the underpayment penalty, Special rules for certain individuals, Exceptions to the underpayment penalty, How to figure your underpayment and the amount of your penalty on Form 2210, and How to ask the IRS to waive the penalty. Turbotax 2011 free edition Useful Items - You may want to see: Form (and Instructions) 2210 Underpayment of Estimated Tax by Individuals, Estates, and Trusts 2210-F Underpayment of Estimated Tax by Farmers and Fishermen See chapter 5 for information about getting these forms. Turbotax 2011 free edition General Rule In general, you may owe a penalty for 2013 if the total of your withholding and timely estimated tax payments did not equal at least the smaller of: 90% of your 2013 tax, or 100% of your 2012 tax. Turbotax 2011 free edition (Your 2012 tax return must cover a 12-month period. Turbotax 2011 free edition ) Your 2013 tax, for this purpose, is defined under Total tax for 2013 , later. Turbotax 2011 free edition Special rules for certain individuals. Turbotax 2011 free edition   There are special rules for farmers and fishermen and certain higher income taxpayers. Turbotax 2011 free edition Farmers and fishermen. Turbotax 2011 free edition   If at least two-thirds of your gross income for 2012 or 2013 is from farming or fishing, substitute  662/3% for 90% in (1) above. Turbotax 2011 free edition   See Farmers and Fishermen , later. Turbotax 2011 free edition Higher income taxpayers. Turbotax 2011 free edition   If your AGI for 2012 was more than $150,000 ($75,000 if your 2013 filing status is married filing a separate return), substitute 110% for 100% in (2) under General Rule . Turbotax 2011 free edition This rule does not apply to farmers or fishermen. Turbotax 2011 free edition   For 2012, AGI is the amount shown on Form 1040, line 37; Form 1040A, line 21; and Form 1040EZ, line 4. Turbotax 2011 free edition Penalty figured separately for each period. Turbotax 2011 free edition   Because the penalty is figured separately for each payment period, you may owe a penalty for an earlier payment period even if you later paid enough to make up the underpayment. Turbotax 2011 free edition This is true even if you are due a refund when you file your income tax return. Turbotax 2011 free edition Example. Turbotax 2011 free edition You did not make estimated tax payments for 2013 because you thought you had enough tax withheld from your wages. Turbotax 2011 free edition Early in January 2014, you made an estimate of your total 2013 tax. Turbotax 2011 free edition Then you realized that your withholding was $2,000 less than the amount needed to avoid a penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. Turbotax 2011 free edition On January 10, you made an estimated tax payment of $3,000, which is the difference between your withholding and your estimate of your total tax. Turbotax 2011 free edition Your final return shows your total tax to be $50 less than your estimate, so you are due a refund. Turbotax 2011 free edition You do not owe a penalty for your payment due January 15, 2014. Turbotax 2011 free edition However, you may owe a penalty through January 10, 2014, the day you made the $3,000 payment, for your underpayments for the earlier payment periods. Turbotax 2011 free edition Minimum required each period. Turbotax 2011 free edition   You will owe a penalty for any 2013 payment period for which your estimated tax payment plus your withholding for the period and overpayments applied from previous periods was less than the smaller of: 22. Turbotax 2011 free edition 5% of your 2013 tax, or 25% of your 2012 tax. Turbotax 2011 free edition (Your 2012 tax return must cover a 12-month period. Turbotax 2011 free edition ) Minimum required for higher income taxpayers. Turbotax 2011 free edition   If you are subject to the rule for higher income taxpayers, discussed above, substitute 27. Turbotax 2011 free edition 5% for 25% in (2) under General Rule . Turbotax 2011 free edition When penalty is charged. Turbotax 2011 free edition   If you miss a payment or you paid less than the minimum required in a period, you may be charged an underpayment penalty from the date the amount was due to the date the payment is made. Turbotax 2011 free edition If a payment is mailed, the date of the U. Turbotax 2011 free edition S. Turbotax 2011 free edition postmark is considered the date of payment. Turbotax 2011 free edition   If a payment is made electronically, the date the payment is shown on your payment account (checking, savings, etc. Turbotax 2011 free edition ) is considered to be the date of payment. Turbotax 2011 free edition Estate or trust payments of estimated tax. Turbotax 2011 free edition   If you have estimated taxes credited to you from an estate or trust (Schedule K-1 (Form 1041)), treat the payment as made by you on January 15, 2014. Turbotax 2011 free edition Amended returns. Turbotax 2011 free edition    If you file an amended return by the due date of your original return, use the tax shown on your amended return to figure your required estimated tax payments. Turbotax 2011 free edition If you file an amended return after the due date of the original return, use the tax shown on the original return. Turbotax 2011 free edition   However, if you and your spouse file a joint return after the due date to replace separate returns you originally filed by the due date, use the tax shown on the joint return to figure your required estimated tax payments. Turbotax 2011 free edition This rule applies only if both original separate returns were filed on time. Turbotax 2011 free edition 2012 separate returns and 2013 joint return. Turbotax 2011 free edition    If you file a joint return with your spouse for 2013, but you filed separate returns for 2012, your 2012 tax is the total of the tax shown on your separate returns. Turbotax 2011 free edition You filed a separate return if you filed as single, head of household, or married filing separately. Turbotax 2011 free edition 2012 joint return and 2013 separate returns. Turbotax 2011 free edition    If you file a separate return for 2013, but you filed a joint return with your spouse for 2012, your 2012 tax is your share of the tax on the joint return. Turbotax 2011 free edition You are filing a separate return if you file as single, head of household, or married filing separately. Turbotax 2011 free edition   To figure your share of the taxes on a joint return, first figure the tax both you and your spouse would have paid had you filed separate returns for 2012 using the same filing status as for 2013. Turbotax 2011 free edition Then multiply the tax on the joint return by the following fraction. Turbotax 2011 free edition   The tax you would have paid had you filed a separate return   The total tax you and your spouse would have paid had you filed separate returns Example. Turbotax 2011 free edition Lisa and Paul filed a joint return for 2012 showing taxable income of $49,000 and a tax of $6,484. Turbotax 2011 free edition Of the $49,000 taxable income, $41,000 was Lisa's and the rest was Paul's. Turbotax 2011 free edition For 2013, they file married filing separately. Turbotax 2011 free edition Lisa figures her share of the tax on the 2012 joint return as follows. Turbotax 2011 free edition 2012 tax on $41,000 based on a separate return $ 6,286 2012 tax on $8,000 based on a  separate return 803 Total $ 7,089 Lisa's percentage of total tax  ($6,286 ÷ $ 7,089) 88. Turbotax 2011 free edition 67% Lisa's part of tax on joint return ($6,484 × 88. Turbotax 2011 free edition 67%) $ 5,749 Form 2210. Turbotax 2011 free edition   In most cases, you do not need to file Form 2210. Turbotax 2011 free edition The IRS will figure the penalty for you and send you a bill. Turbotax 2011 free edition If you want us to figure the penalty for you, leave the penalty line on your return blank. Turbotax 2011 free edition Do not file Form 2210. Turbotax 2011 free edition   To determine if you should file Form 2210, see Part II of Form 2210. Turbotax 2011 free edition If you decide to figure your penalty, complete Part I, Part II, and either Part III or Part IV of the form and the Penalty Worksheet in the Instructions for Form 2210. Turbotax 2011 free edition If you use Form 2210, you cannot file Form 1040EZ. Turbotax 2011 free edition   On Form 1040, enter the amount of your penalty on line 77. Turbotax 2011 free edition If you owe tax on line 76, add the penalty to your tax due and show your total payment on line 76. Turbotax 2011 free edition If you are due a refund, subtract the penalty from the overpayment and enter the result on line 73. Turbotax 2011 free edition   On Form 1040A, enter the amount of your penalty on line 46. Turbotax 2011 free edition If you owe tax on line 45, add the penalty to your tax due and show your total payment on line 45. Turbotax 2011 free edition If you are due a refund, subtract the penalty from the overpayment and enter the result on line 42. Turbotax 2011 free edition Lowering or eliminating the penalty. Turbotax 2011 free edition    You may be able to lower or eliminate your penalty if you file Form 2210. Turbotax 2011 free edition You must file Form 2210 with your return if any of the following applies. Turbotax 2011 free edition You request a waiver. Turbotax 2011 free edition See Waiver of Penalty , later. Turbotax 2011 free edition You use the annualized income installment method. Turbotax 2011 free edition See the explanation of this method under Annualized Income Installment Method (Schedule AI) . Turbotax 2011 free edition You use your actual withholding for each payment period for estimated tax purposes. Turbotax 2011 free edition See Actual withholding method under Figuring Your Underpayment (Part IV, Section A). Turbotax 2011 free edition You base any of your required installments on the tax shown on your 2012 return and you filed or are filing a joint return for either 2012 or 2013, but not for both years. Turbotax 2011 free edition Exceptions Generally, you do not have to pay an underpayment penalty if either: Your total tax is less than $1,000, or You had no tax liability last year. Turbotax 2011 free edition Less Than $1,000 Due You do not owe a penalty if the total tax shown on your return minus the amount you paid through withholding (including excess social security and tier 1 railroad retirement (RRTA) tax withholding) is less than $1,000. Turbotax 2011 free edition Total tax for 2013. Turbotax 2011 free edition   For 2013, your total tax on Form 1040 is the amount on line 61 reduced by the following. Turbotax 2011 free edition    Unreported social security and Medicare tax or RRTA tax from Forms 4137 or 8919 (line 57). Turbotax 2011 free edition Any tax included on line 58 for excess contributions to IRAs, Archer MSAs, Coverdell education savings accounts, and health savings accounts, or any tax on excess accumulations in qualified retirement plans.

Turbotax 2011 free edition Any refundable credit amounts listed on lines 64a, 65, 66, 70, and any credit from Form 8885 included on line 71. Turbotax 2011 free edition   If you filed Form 1040A, your 2013 total tax is the amount on line 35 reduced by any refundable credits on lines 38a, 39, and 40. Turbotax 2011 free edition   If you filed Form 1040EZ, your 2013 total tax is the amount on line 10 reduced by the amount on line 8a. Turbotax 2011 free edition Note. Turbotax 2011 free edition When figuring the amount on line 60, include household employment taxes only if you had federal income tax withheld from your income or you would owe the penalty even if you did not include those taxes. Turbotax 2011 free edition Paid through withholding.

Turbotax 2011 free edition Add to that any write-in amount on line 72 identified as “Form 8689. Turbotax 2011 free edition ” On Form 1040A, the amount you paid through withholding is the amount on line 36 plus any excess social security or tier 1 RRTA tax withholding included on line 41. Turbotax 2011 free edition On Form 1040EZ, it is the amount on line 7. Turbotax 2011 free edition No Tax Liability Last Year You do not owe a penalty if you had no tax liability last year and you were a U. Turbotax 2011 free edition S. Turbotax 2011 free edition citizen or resident for the whole year. Turbotax 2011 free edition For this rule to apply, your tax year must have included all 12 months of the year. Turbotax 2011 free edition You had no tax liability for 2012 if your total tax was zero or you were not required to file an income tax return. Turbotax 2011 free edition Example. Turbotax 2011 free edition Ray, who is single and 22 years old, was unemployed for a few months during 2012. Turbotax 2011 free edition He earned $6,700 in wages before he was laid off, and he received $1,400 in unemployment compensation afterwards. Turbotax 2011 free edition He had no other income. Turbotax 2011 free edition Even though he had gross income of $8,100, he did not have to pay income tax because his gross income was less than the filing requirement for a single person under age 65 ($9,750 for 2012). Turbotax 2011 free edition He filed a return only to have his withheld income tax refunded to him. Turbotax 2011 free edition In 2013, Ray began regular work as an independent contractor. Turbotax 2011 free edition Ray made no estimated tax payments in 2013. Turbotax 2011 free edition Even though he did owe tax at the end of the year, Ray does not owe the underpayment penalty for 2013 because he had no tax liability in 2012. Turbotax 2011 free edition Total tax for 2012. Turbotax 2011 free edition   For 2012, your total tax on Form 1040 is the amount on line 61 reduced by the following. Turbotax 2011 free edition    Unreported social security and Medicare tax or RRTA tax from Forms 4137 or 8919 (line 57). Turbotax 2011 free edition Any tax included on line 58 for excess contributions to IRAs, Archer MSAs, Coverdell education savings accounts, and health savings accounts, or any tax on excess accumulations in qualified retirement plans. Turbotax 2011 free edition The following write-ins on line 60: Uncollected social security and Medicare tax or RRTA tax on tips or group-term life insurance, Tax on excess golden parachute payments, Excise tax on insider stock compensation from an expatriated corporation, Look-back interest due under section 167(g), Look-back interest due under section 460(b), Recapture of federal mortgage subsidy, and Additional tax on advance payments of health coverage tax credit when not eligible. Turbotax 2011 free edition Any refundable credit amounts listed on lines 64a, 65, 66, 70, and credits from Forms 8801 (line 27 only), and 8885 included on line 71. Turbotax 2011 free edition   If you filed Form 1040A, your 2012 total tax is the amount on line 35 reduced by any refundable credits on lines 38a, 39, and 40. Turbotax 2011 free edition   If you filed Form 1040EZ, your 2012 total tax is the amount on line 11 reduced by the amount on line 8a. Turbotax 2011 free edition Figuring Your Required Annual Payment (Part I) Figure your required annual payment in Part I of Form 2210, following the line-by-line instructions. Turbotax 2011 free edition If you rounded the entries on your tax return to whole dollars, you can round on Form 2210. Turbotax 2011 free edition Example. Turbotax 2011 free edition The tax on Lori Lane's 2012 return was $12,400. Turbotax 2011 free edition Her AGI was not more than $150,000 for either 2012 or 2013. Turbotax 2011 free edition The tax on her 2013 return (Form 1040, line 55) is $13,044. Turbotax 2011 free edition Line 56 (self-employment tax) is $8,902. Turbotax 2011 free edition Her 2013 total tax is $21,946. Turbotax 2011 free edition For 2013, Lori had $1,600 income tax withheld and made four equal estimated tax payments ($1,000 each). Turbotax 2011 free edition 90% of her 2013 tax is $19,751. Turbotax 2011 free edition Because she paid less than her 2012 tax ($12,400) and less than 90% of her 2013 tax ($19,751), and does not meet an exception, Lori knows that she owes a penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. Turbotax 2011 free edition The IRS will figure the penalty for Lori, but she decides to figure it herself on Form 2210 and pay it with her taxes when she files her tax return. Turbotax 2011 free edition Lori's required annual payment is $12,400 (100% of 2012 tax) because that is smaller than 90% of her 2013 tax. Turbotax 2011 free edition Different 2012 filing status. Turbotax 2011 free edition    If you file a separate return for 2013, but you filed a joint return with your spouse for 2012, see 2012 joint return and 2013 separate returns , earlier, to figure the amount to enter as your 2012 tax on line 8 of Form 2210. Turbotax 2011 free edition Short Method for Figuring the Penalty (Part III) You may be able to use the short method in Part III of Form 2210 to figure your penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. Turbotax 2011 free edition If you qualify to use this method, it will result in the same penalty amount as the regular method. Turbotax 2011 free edition However, either the annualized income installment method or the actual withholding method, explained later, may result in a smaller penalty. Turbotax 2011 free edition You can use the short method only if you meet one of the following requirements. Turbotax 2011 free edition You made no estimated tax payments for 2013 (it does not matter whether you had income tax withholding). Turbotax 2011 free edition You paid the same amount of estimated tax on each of the four payment due dates. Turbotax 2011 free edition If you do not meet either requirement, figure your penalty using the regular method in Part IV of Form 2210 and the Penalty Worksheet in the instructions. Turbotax 2011 free edition Note. Turbotax 2011 free edition If any payment was made before the due date, you can use the short method, but the penalty may be less if you use the regular method. Turbotax 2011 free edition However, if the payment was only a few days early, the difference is likely to be small. Turbotax 2011 free edition You cannot use the short method if any of the following apply. Turbotax 2011 free edition You made any estimated tax payments late. Turbotax 2011 free edition You checked box C or D in Part II of Form 2210. Turbotax 2011 free edition You are filing Form 1040NR or 1040NR-EZ and you did not receive wages as an employee subject to U. Turbotax 2011 free edition S. Turbotax 2011 free edition income tax withholding. Turbotax 2011 free edition If you use the short method, you cannot use the annualized income installment method to figure your underpayment for each payment period. Turbotax 2011 free edition Also, you cannot use your actual withholding during each period to figure your payments for each period. Turbotax 2011 free edition These methods, which may give you a smaller penalty amount, are explained under Figuring Your Underpayment (Part IV, Section A). Turbotax 2011 free edition Complete Part III of Form 2210 following the line-by-line instructions in the Instructions for Form 2210. Turbotax 2011 free edition Regular Method for Figuring the Penalty (Part IV) You can use the regular method in Part IV of Form 2210 to figure your penalty for underpayment of estimated tax if you paid one or more estimated tax payments earlier than the due date. Turbotax 2011 free edition You must use the regular method in Part IV of Form 2210 to figure your penalty for underpayment of estimated tax if any of the following apply to you. Turbotax 2011 free edition You paid one or more estimated tax payments on a date after the due date. Turbotax 2011 free edition You paid at least one, but less than four, installments of estimated tax. Turbotax 2011 free edition You paid estimated tax payments in un- equal amounts. Turbotax 2011 free edition You use the annualized income installment method to figure your underpayment for each payment period. Turbotax 2011 free edition You use your actual withholding during each payment period to figure your payments. Turbotax 2011 free edition Under the regular method, figure your underpayment for each payment period in Section A, then figure your penalty using the Penalty Worksheet in the Instructions for Form 2210. Turbotax 2011 free edition Enter the results on line 27 of Section B. Turbotax 2011 free edition Figuring Your Underpayment (Part IV, Section A) Figure your underpayment of estimated tax for each payment period in Section A following the line-by-line instructions in the Instructions for Form 2210.
