The 1040 Online

1040 online 4. 1040 online   How Income of Aliens Is Taxed Table of Contents Introduction Topics - This chapter discusses: Useful Items - You may want to see: Resident Aliens Nonresident AliensTrade or Business in the United States Effectively Connected Income The 30% Tax Income From Real Property Transportation Tax Interrupted Period of Residence Expatriation TaxExpatriation Before June 4, 2004 Expatriation After June 3, 2004, and Before June 17, 2008 Expatriation After June 16, 2008 Introduction Resident and nonresident aliens are taxed in different ways. 1040 online Resident aliens are generally taxed in the same way as U. 1040 online S. 1040 online citizens. 1040 online Nonresident aliens are taxed based on the source of their income and whether or not their income is effectively connected with a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business. 1040 online The following discussions will help you determine if income you receive during the tax year is effectively connected with a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business and how it is taxed. 1040 online Topics - This chapter discusses: Income that is effectively connected with a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business. 1040 online Income that is not effectively connected with a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business. 1040 online Interrupted period of residence. 1040 online Expatriation tax. 1040 online Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 544 Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets 1212 List of Original Issue Discount Instruments Form (and Instructions) 6251 Alternative Minimum Tax—Individuals Schedule D (Form 1040) Capital Gains and Losses See chapter 12 for information about getting these publications and forms. 1040 online Resident Aliens Resident aliens are generally taxed in the same way as U. 1040 online S. 1040 online citizens. 1040 online This means that their worldwide income is subject to U. 1040 online S. 1040 online tax and must be reported on their U. 1040 online S. 1040 online tax return. 1040 online Income of resident aliens is subject to the graduated tax rates that apply to U. 1040 online S. 1040 online citizens. 1040 online Resident aliens use the Tax Table or Tax Computation Worksheets located in the Form 1040 instructions, which apply to U. 1040 online S. 1040 online citizens. 1040 online Nonresident Aliens A nonresident alien's income that is subject to U. 1040 online S. 1040 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). 1040 online The difference between these two categories is that effectively connected income, after allowable deductions, is taxed at graduated rates. 1040 online These are the same rates that apply to U. 1040 online S. 1040 online citizens and residents. 1040 online Income that is not effectively connected is taxed at a flat 30% (or lower treaty) rate. 1040 online If you were formerly a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online citizen or resident alien, these rules may not apply. 1040 online See Expatriation Tax, later, in this chapter. 1040 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. 1040 online Whether you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States depends on the nature of your activities. 1040 online The discussions that follow will help you determine whether you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States. 1040 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. 1040 online Certain compensation paid to a nonresident alien by a foreign employer is not included in gross income. 1040 online For more information, see Services Performed for Foreign Employer in chapter 3. 1040 online Other Trade or Business Activities Other examples of being engaged in a trade or business in the United States follow. 1040 online Students and trainees. 1040 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. 1040 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. 1040 online The taxable part of any scholarship or fellowship grant that is U. 1040 online S. 1040 online source income is treated as effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. 1040 online Business operations. 1040 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. 1040 online Partnerships. 1040 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. 1040 online Beneficiary of an estate or trust. 1040 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. 1040 online Trading in stocks, securities, and commodities. 1040 online   If your only U. 1040 online S. 1040 online business activity is trading in stocks, securities, or commodities (including hedging transactions) through a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online resident broker or other agent, you are not engaged in a trade or business in the United States. 1040 online   For transactions in stocks or securities, this applies to any nonresident alien, including a dealer or broker in stocks and securities. 1040 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. 1040 online   This discussion does not apply if you have a U. 1040 online S. 1040 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. 1040 online Trading for a nonresident alien's own account. 1040 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. 1040 online S. 1040 online business activity. 1040 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. 1040 online   This does not apply to trading for your own account if you are a dealer in stocks, securities, or commodities. 1040 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. 1040 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 . 1040 online Effectively Connected Income If you are engaged in a U. 1040 online S. 1040 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. 1040 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. 1040 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. 1040 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. 1040 online For a discussion of these rules, see Foreign Income , later. 1040 online Investment Income Investment income from U. 1040 online S. 1040 online sources that may or may not be treated as effectively connected with a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business generally falls into the following three categories. 1040 online Fixed or determinable income (interest, dividends, rents, royalties, premiums, annuities, etc. 1040 online ). 1040 online Gains (some of which are considered capital gains) from the sale or exchange of the following types of property. 1040 online Timber, coal, or domestic iron ore with a retained economic interest. 1040 online Patents, copyrights, and similar property on which you receive contingent payments after October 4, 1966. 1040 online Patents transferred before October 5, 1966. 1040 online Original issue discount obligations. 1040 online Capital gains (and losses). 1040 online Use the two tests, described next, to determine whether an item of U. 1040 online S. 1040 online source income falling in one of the three categories above and received during the tax year is effectively connected with your U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business. 1040 online If the tests indicate that the item of income is effectively connected, you must include it with your other effectively connected income. 1040 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. 1040 online Asset-use test. 1040 online   This test usually applies to income that is not directly produced by trade or business activities. 1040 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. 1040 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. 1040 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. 1040 online Business-activities test. 1040 online   This test usually applies when income, gain, or loss comes directly from the active conduct of the trade or business. 1040 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. 1040 online Under this test, if the conduct of the U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business was a material factor in producing the income, the income is considered effectively connected. 1040 online Personal Service Income You usually are engaged in a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business when you perform personal services in the United States. 1040 online Personal service income you receive in a tax year in which you are engaged in a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business is effectively connected with a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business. 1040 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. 1040 online Personal service income includes wages, salaries, commissions, fees, per diem allowances, and employee allowances and bonuses. 1040 online The income may be paid to you in the form of cash, services, or property. 1040 online If you are engaged in a U. 1040 online S. 1040 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. 1040 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. 1040 online Pensions. 1040 online   If you were a nonresident alien engaged in a U. 1040 online S. 1040 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. 1040 online This is true whether or not you are engaged in a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business in the year you receive the retirement pay. 1040 online Transportation Income Transportation income (defined in chapter 2) is effectively connected if you meet both of the following conditions. 1040 online You had a fixed place of business in the United States involved in earning the income. 1040 online At least 90% of your U. 1040 online S. 1040 online source transportation income is attributable to regularly scheduled transportation. 1040 online “Fixed place of business” generally means a place, site, structure, or other similar facility through which you engage in a trade or business. 1040 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. 1040 online This definition applies to both scheduled and chartered air transportation. 1040 online If you do not meet the two conditions above, the income is not effectively connected and is taxed at a 4% rate. 1040 online See Transportation Tax, later, in this chapter. 1040 online Business Profits and Losses and Sales Transactions All profits or losses from U. 1040 online S. 1040 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. 1040 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. 1040 online A share of U. 1040 online S. 1040 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. 1040 online Real Property Gain or Loss Gains and losses from the sale or exchange of U. 1040 online S. 1040 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. 1040 online You must treat the gain or loss as effectively connected with that trade or business. 1040 online U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property interest. 1040 online   This is any interest in real property located in the United States or the U. 1040 online S. 1040 online Virgin Islands or any interest (other than as a creditor) in a domestic corporation that is a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property holding corporation. 1040 online Real property includes the following. 1040 online Land and unsevered natural products of the land, such as growing crops and timber, and mines, wells, and other natural deposits. 1040 online Improvements on land, including buildings, other permanent structures, and their structural components. 1040 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. 1040 online U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property holding corporation. 1040 online   A corporation is a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property holding corporation if the fair market value of the corporation's U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property interests are at least 50% of the total fair market value of: The corporation's U. 1040 online S. 1040 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. 1040 online   Gain or loss on the sale of the stock in any domestic corporation is taxed as if you are engaged in a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business unless you establish that the corporation is not a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property holding corporation. 1040 online   A U. 1040 online S. 1040 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. 1040 online An interest in a foreign corporation owning U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property generally is not a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property interest unless the corporation chooses to be treated as a domestic corporation. 1040 online Qualified investment entities. 1040 online   Special rules apply to qualified investment entities (QIEs). 1040 online A QIE is any real estate investment trust (REIT) or any regulated investment company (RIC) that is a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property holding corporation. 1040 online    Generally, any distribution from a QIE to a shareholder that is attributable to gain from the sale or exchange of a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property interest is treated as a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property gain by the shareholder receiving the distribution. 1040 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. 1040 online S. 1040 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. 1040 online A distribution that you do not treat as gain from the sale or exchange of a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property interest is included in your gross income as a regular dividend. 1040 online Note. 1040 online Beginning January 1, 2014 (unless extended by legislation), a RIC that is a U. 1040 online S. 1040 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. 1040 online Domestically controlled QIE. 1040 online   The sale of an interest in a domestically controlled QIE is not the sale of a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property interest. 1040 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. 1040 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. 1040 online Wash sale. 1040 online    If you dispose of an interest in a domestically controlled QIE in an applicable wash sale transaction, special rules apply. 1040 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. 1040 online S. 1040 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. 1040 online If this occurs, you are treated as having gain from the sale or exchange of a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property interest in an amount equal to the distribution made after June 15, 2006, that would have been treated as such gain. 1040 online This also applies to any substitute dividend payment. 1040 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. 1040 online Alternative minimum tax. 1040 online   There may be a minimum tax on your net gain from the disposition of U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property interests. 1040 online Figure the amount of this tax, if any, on Form 6251. 1040 online Withholding of tax. 1040 online   If you dispose of a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property interest, the buyer may have to withhold tax. 1040 online See the discussion of Tax Withheld on Real Property Sales in chapter 8. 1040 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. 1040 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. 1040 online The three kinds of foreign source income are listed below. 1040 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. 1040 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. 1040 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. 1040 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. 1040 online Income, gain, or loss from the sale outside the United States, through the U. 1040 online S. 1040 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. 1040 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. 1040 online Any foreign source income that is equivalent to any item of income described above is treated as effectively connected with a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business. 1040 online For example, foreign source interest and dividend equivalents are treated as U. 1040 online S. 1040 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. 1040 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. 1040 online S. 1040 online citizens and residents. 1040 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. 1040 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. 1040 online Example. 1040 online Ted Richards, a nonresident alien, entered the United States in August 2012, to perform personal services in the U. 1040 online S. 1040 online office of his overseas employer. 1040 online He worked in the U. 1040 online S. 1040 online office until December 25, 2012, but did not leave this country until January 11, 2013. 1040 online On January 8, 2013, he received his final paycheck for services performed in the United States during 2012. 1040 online All of Ted's income during his stay here is U. 1040 online S. 1040 online source income. 1040 online During 2012, Ted was engaged in the trade or business of performing personal services in the United States. 1040 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. 1040 online The salary payment Ted received in January 2013 is U. 1040 online S. 1040 online source income to him in 2013. 1040 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. 1040 online Real property income. 1040 online   You may be able to choose to treat all income from real property as effectively connected. 1040 online See Income From Real Property , later, in this chapter. 1040 online The 30% Tax Tax at a 30% (or lower treaty) rate applies to certain items of income or gains from U. 1040 online S. 1040 online sources but only if the items are not effectively connected with your U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business. 1040 online Fixed or Determinable Income The 30% (or lower treaty) rate applies to the gross amount of U. 1040 online S. 1040 online source fixed or determinable annual or periodic gains, profits, or income. 1040 online Income is fixed when it is paid in amounts known ahead of time. 1040 online Income is determinable whenever there is a basis for figuring the amount to be paid. 1040 online Income can be periodic if it is paid from time to time. 1040 online It does not have to be paid annually or at regular intervals. 1040 online Income can be determinable or periodic even if the length of time during which the payments are made is increased or decreased. 1040 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. 1040 online A substitute dividend or interest payment received under a securities lending transaction or a

online Some fixed or determinable income may be exempt from U. 1040 online S. 1040 online tax. 1040 online See chapter 3 if you are not sure whether the income is taxable. 1040 online Original issue

debt instrument. 1040 online The 30% tax applies in the following circumstances. 1040 online You received a payment on a debt instrument. 1040 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. 1040 online But the tax on the OID cannot be more than the payment minus the tax on the interest payment on the debt instrument. 1040 online You sold or exchanged the debt instrument. 1040 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. 1040 online   Report on your return the amount of OID shown on Form 1042-S, Foreign Person's U. 1040 online S. 1040 online Source Income Subject to Withholding, if

income is not effectively connected with a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business and is not exempted by treaty. 1040 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. 1040 online Nonresident aliens are taxed at graduated rates on net gambling income won in the United States that is effectively connected with a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business. 1040 online Social Security Benefits A nonresident alien must include 85% of any U. 1040 online S. 1040 online social security benefit (and the social security equivalent part of a tier 1 railroad retirement benefit) in U. 1040 online S. 1040 online source fixed or determinable annual or periodic income. 1040 online Social security benefits include monthly retirement, survivor, and disability benefits. 1040 online This income is exempt under some tax treaties. 1040 online See Table 1 in Publication 901, U. 1040 online S. 1040 online Tax Treaties, for a list of tax treaties that exempt U. 1040 online S. 1040 online social security benefits from U. 1040 online S. 1040 online tax. 1040 online Sales or Exchanges of Capital Assets These rules apply only to those capital gains and losses from sources in the United States that are not effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. 1040 online They apply even if you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States. 1040 online These rules do not apply to the sale or exchange of a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online real property interest or to the sale of any property that is effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. 1040 online See Real Property Gain or Loss , earlier, under Effectively Connected Income. 1040 online A capital asset is everything you own except: Inventory. 1040 online Business accounts or notes receivable. 1040 online Depreciable property used in a trade or business. 1040 online Real property used in a trade or business. 1040 online Supplies regularly used in a trade or business. 1040 online Certain copyrights, literary or musical or artistic

held by a commodities derivatives dealer. 1040 online Hedging transactions. 1040 online A capital gain is a gain on the sale or exchange of a capital asset. 1040 online A capital loss is a loss on the sale or exchange of a capital asset. 1040 online If the sale is in foreign currency, for the purpose of determining gain, the cost and selling price of the property should be expressed in U. 1040 online S. 1040 online currency at the rate of exchange prevailing as of the date of the purchase and date of the sale, respectively. 1040 online You may want to read Publication 544. 1040 online However, use Publication 544 only to determine what is a sale or exchange of a capital asset, or what is treated as such. 1040 online Specific tax treatment that applies to U. 1040 online S. 1040 online citizens or residents generally does not apply to you. 1040 online The following gains are subject to the 30% (or lower treaty) rate without regard to the 183-day rule, discussed later. 1040 online Gains on the disposal of timber, coal, or domestic iron ore with a retained economic interest. 1040 online Gains on contingent payments received from the sale or exchange of patents, copyrights, and similar property after October 4, 1966. 1040 online Gains on certain transfers of all substantial rights to, or an undivided interest in, patents if the transfers were made before October 5, 1966. 1040 online Gains on the sale or exchange of original issue discount obligations. 1040 online Gains in (1) are not subject to the 30% (or lower treaty) rate if you choose to treat the gains as effectively connected with a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business. 1040 online See Income From Real Property , later. 1040 online 183-day rule. 1040 online   If you were in the United States for 183 days or more during the tax year, your net gain from sales or exchanges of capital assets is taxed at a 30% (or lower treaty) rate. 1040 online For purposes of the 30% (or lower treaty) rate, net gain is the excess of your capital gains from U. 1040 online S. 1040 online sources over your capital losses from U. 1040 online S. 1040 online sources. 1040 online This rule applies even if any of the transactions occurred while you were not in the United States. 1040 online   To determine your net gain, consider the amount of your gains and losses that would be recognized and taken into account only if, and to the extent that, they would be recognized and taken into account if you were in a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business during the year and the gains and losses were effectively connected with that trade or business during the tax year. 1040 online   In arriving at your net gain, do not take the following into consideration. 1040 online The four types of gains listed earlier. 1040 online The deduction for a capital loss carryover. 1040 online Capital losses in excess of capital gains. 1040 online Exclusion for gain from the sale or exchange of qualified small business stock (section 1202 exclusion). 1040 online Losses from the sale or exchange of property held for personal use. 1040 online However, losses resulting from casualties or thefts may be deductible on Schedule A (Form 1040NR). 1040 online See Itemized Deductions in chapter 5. 1040 online   If you are not engaged in a trade or business in the United States and have not established a tax year for a prior period, your tax year will be the calendar year for purposes of the 183-day rule. 1040 online Also, you must file your tax return on a calendar-year basis. 1040 online   If you were in the United States for less than 183 days during the tax year, capital gains (other than gains listed earlier) are tax exempt unless they are effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States during your tax year. 1040 online Reporting. 1040 online   Report your gains and losses from the sales or exchanges of capital assets that are not effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States on page 4 of Form 1040NR. 1040 online Report gains and losses from sales or exchanges of capital assets (including real property) that are effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States on a separate Schedule D (Form 1040), Form 4797, or both. 1040 online Attach them to Form 1040NR. 1040 online Income From Real Property If you have income from real property located in the United States that you own or have an interest in and hold for the production of income, you can choose to treat all income from that property as income effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. 1040 online The choice applies to all income from real property located in the United States and held for the production of income and to all income from any interest in such property. 1040 online This includes income from rents, royalties from mines, oil or gas wells, or other natural resources. 1040 online It also includes gains from the sale or exchange of timber, coal, or domestic iron ore with a retained economic interest. 1040 online You can make this choice only for real property income that is not otherwise effectively connected with your U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business. 1040 online If you make the choice, you can claim deductions attributable to the real property income and only your net income from real property is taxed. 1040 online This choice does not treat a nonresident alien, who is not otherwise engaged in a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business, as being engaged in a trade or business in the United States during the year. 1040 online Example. 1040 online You are a nonresident alien and are not engaged in a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business. 1040 online You own a single-family house in the United States that you rent out. 1040 online Your rental income for the year is $10,000. 1040 online This is your only U. 1040 online S. 1040 online source income. 1040 online As discussed earlier under The 30% Tax, the rental income is subject to a tax at a 30% (or lower treaty) rate. 1040 online You received a Form 1042-S showing that your tenants properly withheld this tax from the rental income. 1040 online You do not have to file a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online tax return (Form 1040NR) because your U. 1040 online S. 1040 online tax liability is satisfied by the withholding of tax. 1040 online If you make the choice discussed earlier, you can offset the $10,000 income by certain rental expenses. 1040 online (See Publication 527, Residential Rental Property, for information on rental expenses. 1040 online ) Any resulting net income is taxed at graduated rates. 1040 online If you make this choice, report the rental income and expenses on Schedule E (Form 1040) and attach the schedule to Form 1040NR. 1040 online For the first year you make the choice, also attach the statement discussed next. 1040 online Making the choice. 1040 online   Make the initial choice by attaching a statement to your return, or amended return, for the year of the choice. 1040 online Include the following in your statement. 1040 online That you are making the choice. 1040 online Whether the choice is under Internal Revenue Code section 871(d) (explained earlier) or a tax treaty. 1040 online A complete list of all your real property, or any interest in real property, located in the United States. 1040 online Give the legal identification of U. 1040 online S. 1040 online timber, coal, or iron ore in which you have an interest. 1040 online The extent of your ownership in the property. 1040 online The location of the property. 1040 online A description of any major improvements to the property. 1040 online The dates you owned the property. 1040 online Your income from the property. 1040 online Details of any previous choices and revocations of the real property income choice. 1040 online   This choice stays in effect for all later tax years unless you revoke it. 1040 online Revoking the choice. 1040 online   You can revoke the choice without IRS approval by filing Form 1040X, Amended U. 1040 online S. 1040 online Individual Income Tax Return, for the year you made the choice and for later tax years. 1040 online You must file Form 1040X within 3 years from the date your return was filed or 2 years from the time the tax was paid, whichever is later. 1040 online If this time period has expired for the year of choice, you cannot revoke the choice for that year. 1040 online However, you may revoke the choice for later tax years only if you have IRS approval. 1040 online For information on how to get IRS approval, see Regulation section 1. 1040 online 871-10(d)(2). 1040 online Transportation Tax A 4% tax rate applies to transportation income that is not effectively connected because it does not meet the two conditions listed earlier under Transportation Income . 1040 online If you receive transportation income subject to the 4% tax, you should figure the tax and show it on line 57 of Form 1040NR. 1040 online Attach a statement to your return that includes the following information (if applicable). 1040 online Your name, taxpayer identification number, and tax year. 1040 online A description of the types of services performed (whether on or off board). 1040 online Names of vessels or registration numbers of aircraft on which you performed the services. 1040 online Amount of U. 1040 online S. 1040 online source transportation income derived from each type of service for each vessel or aircraft for the calendar year. 1040 online Total amount of U. 1040 online S. 1040 online source transportation income derived from all types of services for the calendar year. 1040 online This 4% tax applies to your U. 1040 online S. 1040 online source gross transportation income. 1040 online This only includes transportation income that is treated as derived from sources in the United States if the transportation begins or ends in the United States. 1040 online For transportation income from personal services, the transportation must be between the United States and a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online possession. 1040 online For personal services of a nonresident alien, this only applies to income derived from, or in connection with, an aircraft. 1040 online Interrupted Period of Residence You are subject to tax under a special rule if you interrupt your period of U. 1040 online S. 1040 online residence with a period of nonresidence. 1040 online The special rule applies if you meet all of the following conditions. 1040 online You were a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online resident for a period that includes at least 3 consecutive calendar years. 1040 online You were a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online resident for at least 183 days in each of those years. 1040 online You ceased to be treated as a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online resident. 1040 online You then again became a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online resident before the end of the third calendar year after the end of the period described in (1) above. 1040 online Under this special rule, you are subject to tax on your U. 1040 online S. 1040 online source gross income and gains on a net basis at the graduated rates applicable to individuals (with allowable deductions) for the period you were a nonresident alien, unless you would be subject to a higher tax under the 30% tax (discussed earlier) on income not connected with a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online trade or business. 1040 online For information on how to figure the special tax, see How To Figure the Expatriation Tax (If You Expatriated Before June 17, 2008) under Expatriation Tax , below. 1040 online Example. 1040 online John Willow, a citizen of New Zealand, entered the United States on April 1, 2008, as a lawful permanent resident. 1040 online On August 1, 2010, John ceased to be a lawful permanent resident and returned to New Zealand. 1040 online During his period of residence, he was present in the United States for at least 183 days in each of three consecutive years (2008, 2009, and 2010). 1040 online He returned to the United States on October 5, 2013, as a lawful permanent resident. 1040 online He became a resident before the close of the third calendar year (2013) beginning after the end of his first period of residence (August 1, 2010). 1040 online Therefore, he is subject to tax under the special rule for the period of nonresidence (August 2, 2010, through October 4, 2013) if it is more than the tax that would normally apply to him as a nonresident alien. 1040 online Reporting requirements. 1040 online   If you are subject to this tax for any year in the period you were a nonresident alien, you must file Form 1040NR for that year. 1040 online The return is due by the due date (including extensions) for filing your U. 1040 online S. 1040 online income tax return for the year that you again become a U. 1040 online S. 1040 online resident. 1040 online If you already filed returns for that period, you must file amended returns. 1040 online You must attach a statement to your return that identifies the source of all of your U. 1040 online S. 1040 online and foreign gross income and the items of income subject to this special rule. 1040 online Expatriation Tax The expatriation tax provisions apply to U. 1040 online S. 1040 online citizens who have renounced their citizenship and long-term residents who have ended their residency. 1040 online The rules that apply are based on the dates of expatriation, which are described in the following sections. 1040 online Expatriation Before June 4, 2004. 1040 online Expatriation After June 3, 2004, and Before June 17, 2008. 1040 online Expatriation After June

do not waive treaty benefits. 1040 online Expatriation Before June 4, 2004 If you expatriated before June 4, 2004, the expatriation rules apply if one of the principal purposes of the action is the avoidance of U. 1040 online S. 1040 online taxes. 1040 online Unless you received a ruling from the IRS that you did not expatriate to avoid U. 1040 online S. 1040 online taxes, you are presumed to have tax avoidance as a principal purpose if: Your average annual net income tax for the last 5 tax years ending before the date of your action to relinquish your citizenship or terminate your residency was more than $100,000, or Your net worth on the date of your action was $500,000 or more. 1040 online The amounts above are adjusted for inflation if your expatriation action is after 1997

online   Your U. 1040 online S. 1040 online residency is considered to have ended when you ceased to be a lawful permanent resident or you began to be treated as a resident of another country under a
