Army h&r block IRAs and Other Retirement Plans Table of Contents 2002 ChangesSimplified Employee Pensions (SEPs) 403(b) Plans Later ChangeDeemed IRAs 2002 Changes Simplified Employee Pensions (SEPs) Contribution limit increased. Army h&r block   For plan years beginning after December 31, 2001, the annual limit on the amount of employer contributions to a SEP increases to the lesser of the following amounts. Army h&r block 25% of an eligible employee's compensation. Army h&r block $40,000 (subject to cost-of-living adjustments after 2002). Army h&r block Deduction limit. Army h&r block   For years beginning after 2001, the following changes apply to the SEP deduction limit. Army h&r block Elective deferrals (SARSEPs). Army h&r block   Elective deferrals under a SARSEP are not subject to the deduction limit that applies to employer contributions. Army h&r block Also, elective deferrals are not taken into account when figuring the amount you can deduct for employer contributions that are not elective deferrals. Army h&r block Definition of compensation. Army h&r block    Compensation for figuring the deduction for employer contributions includes elective deferrals under a SARSEP. Army h&r block More information. Army h&r block   For more information about SEPs, see Publication 560, Retirement Plans for Small Business. Army h&r block 403(b) Plans Figuring catch-up contributions. Army h&r block   When figuring allowable catch-up contributions, combine all contributions made by your employer on your behalf to the following plans. Army h&r block Qualified retirement plans. Army h&r block 403(b) plans. Army h&r block Simplified employee pensions (SEP). Army h&r block SIMPLE plans. Army h&r block   The total amount of the catch-up contributions to all plans maintained by your employer cannot exceed the annual limit. Army h&r block For 2002, the limit is $1,000. Army h&r block Rollovers to and from 403(b) plans. Army h&r block   If a distribution includes both pre-tax contributions and after-tax contributions, the portion of the distribution that is rolled over is treated as consisting first of pre-tax amounts (contributions and earnings that would be includible in income if no rollover occurred). Army h&r block This means that if you roll over an amount that is at least as much as the pre-tax portion of the distribution, you do not have to include any of the distribution in income. Army h&r block Years of service for church employees and ministers. Army h&r block   If you are a minister or church employee, treat all of your years of service as an employee of a church or a convention or association of churches as years of service with one employer. Army h&r block Prior law required church employees and ministers to figure years of service separately for each employer. Army h&r block   As a minister or church employee, all contributions made to 403(b) plans on your behalf, as an employee of a church or a convention or association of churches, are considered made by one employer. Army h&r block Foreign missionaries. Army h&r block   If you are a foreign missionary, contributions to your 403(b) account will not be treated as exceeding the limit on annual additions if the contributions are not more than the greater of: $3,000, or Your includible compensation. Army h&r block More information. Army h&r block   For more information about 403(b) plans, see Publication 571, Tax-Sheltered Annuity Plans (403(b) Plans). Army h&r block Later Change Deemed IRAs For plan years beginning after 2002, a qualified employer plan can provide for voluntary employee contributions to a separate account or annuity that is deemed to be an IRA. Army h&r block For this purpose, a qualified employer plan includes a deferred compensation plan (section 457(b) plan) maintained by a state, a political subdivision of a state, or an agency or instrumentality of a state or political subdivision of a state. Army h&r block The term qualified employer plan also includes: A qualified pension, profit-sharing, or stock bonus plan (section 401(a) plan), A qualified employee annuity plan (section 403(a) plan), and A tax-sheltered annuity plan (section 403(b) plan).

The Army H&r Block

Army h&r block 33. Army h&r block   Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled Table of Contents Introduction Useful Items - You may want to see: Are You Eligible for the Credit?Qualified Individual Income Limits How to Claim the CreditCredit Figured for You Credit Figured by You Introduction If you qualify, you may be able to reduce the tax you owe by taking the credit for the elderly or the disabled which is figured on Schedule R (Form 1040A or 1040). Army h&r block This chapter explains the following. Army h&r block Who qualifies for the credit for the elderly or the disabled. Army h&r block How to claim the credit. Army h&r block You may be able to take the credit for the elderly or the disabled if: You are age 65 or older at the end of 2013, or You retired on permanent and total disability and have taxable disability income. Army h&r block Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 524 Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled 554 Tax Guide for Seniors Form (and Instruction) Schedule R (Form 1040A or 1040) Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled Are You Eligible for the Credit? You can take the credit for the elderly or the disabled if you meet both of the following requirements. Army h&r block You are a qualified individual. Army h&r block Your income is not more than certain limits. Army h&r block You can use Figure 33-A and Table 33-1 as guides to see if you are eligible for the credit. Army h&r block Use Figure 33-A first to see if you are a qualified individual. Army h&r block If you are, go to Table 33-1 to make sure your income is not too high to take the credit. Army h&r block You can take the credit only if you file Form 1040 or Form 1040A. Army h&r block You cannot take the credit if you file Form 1040EZ. Army h&r block Qualified Individual You are a qualified individual for this credit if you are a U. Army h&r block S. Army h&r block citizen or resident alien, and either of the following applies. Army h&r block You were age 65 or older at the end of 2013. Army h&r block You were under age 65 at the end of 2013 and all three of the following statements are true. Army h&r block You retired on permanent and total disability (explained later). Army h&r block You received taxable disability income for 2013. Army h&r block On January 1, 2013, you had not reached mandatory retirement age (defined later under Disability income ). Army h&r block Age 65. Army h&r block   You are considered to be age 65 on the day before your 65th birthday. Army h&r block Therefore, if you were born on January 1, 1949, you are considered to be age 65 at the end of 2013. Army h&r block U. Army h&r block S. Army h&r block Citizen or Resident Alien You must be a U. Army h&r block S. Army h&r block citizen or resident alien (or be treated as a resident alien) to take the credit. Army h&r block Generally, you cannot take the credit if you were a nonresident alien at any time during the tax year. Army h&r block Exceptions. Army h&r block   You may be able to take the credit if you are a nonresident alien who is married to a U. Army h&r block S. Army h&r block citizen or resident alien at the end of the tax year and you and your spouse choose to treat you as a U. Army h&r block S. Army h&r block resident alien. Army h&r block If you make that choice, both you and your spouse are taxed on your worldwide incomes. Army h&r block If you were a nonresident alien at the beginning of the year and a resident alien at the end of the year, and you were married to a U. Army h&r block S. Army h&r block citizen or resident alien at the end of the year, you may be able to choose to be treated as a U. Army h&r block S. Army h&r block resident alien for the entire year. Army h&r block In that case, you may be allowed to take the credit. Army h&r block For information on these choices, see chapter 1 of Publication 519, U. Army h&r block S. Army h&r block Tax Guide for Aliens. Army h&r block Married Persons Generally, if you are married at the end of the tax year, you and your spouse must file a joint return to take the credit. Army h&r block However, if you and your spouse did not live in the same household at any time during the tax year, you can file either a joint return or separate returns and still take the credit. Army h&r block Head of household. Army h&r block   You can file as head of household and qualify to take the credit, even if your spouse lived with you during the first 6 months of the year, if you meet certain tests. Army h&r block See Head of Household in chapter 2 for the tests you must meet. Army h&r block Under Age 65 If you are under age 65 at the end of 2013, you can qualify for the credit only if you are retired on permanent and total disability (discussed next) and have taxable disability income (discussed later under Disability income ). Army h&r block You are retired on permanent and total disability if: You were permanently and totally disabled when you retired, and You retired on disability before the close of the tax year. Army h&r block Even if you do not retire formally, you may be considered retired on disability when you have stopped working because of your disability. Army h&r block If you retired on disability before 1977, and were not permanently and totally disabled at the time, you can qualify for the credit if you were permanently and totally disabled on January 1, 1976, or January 1, 1977. Army h&r block Permanent and total disability. Army h&r block    You are permanently and totally disabled if you cannot engage in any substantial gainful activity because of your physical or mental condition. Army h&r block A qualified physician must certify that the condition has lasted or can be expected to last continuously for 12 months or more, or that the condition can be expected to result in death. Army h&r block See Physician's statement , later. Army h&r block Substantial gainful activity. Army h&r block   Substantial gainful activity is the performance of significant duties over a reasonable period of time while working for pay or profit, or in work generally done for pay or profit. Army h&r block Full-time work (or part-time work done at your employer's convenience) in a competitive work situation for at least the minimum wage conclusively shows that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Army h&r block   Substantial gainful activity is not work you do to take care of yourself or your home. Army h&r block It is not unpaid work on hobbies, institutional therapy or training, school attendance, clubs, social programs, and similar activities. Army h&r block However, doing this kind of work may show that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Army h&r block    The fact that you have not worked for some time is not, of itself, conclusive evidence that you cannot engage in substantial gainful activity. Army h&r block Sheltered employment. Army h&r block   Certain work offered at qualified locations to physically or mentally impaired persons is considered sheltered employment. Army h&r block These qualified locations are in sheltered workshops, hospitals, and similar institutions, homebound programs, and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) sponsored homes. Army h&r block   Compared to commercial employment, pay is lower for sheltered employment. Army h&r block Therefore, one usually does not look for sheltered employment if he or she can get other employment. Army h&r block The fact that one has accepted sheltered employment is not proof of the person's ability to engage in substantial gainful activity. Army h&r block Physician's statement. Army h&r block   If you are under age 65, you must have your physician complete a statement certifying that you were permanently and totally disabled on the date you retired. Army h&r block You can use the statement in the Instructions for Schedule R. Army h&r block    Figure 33-A. Army h&r block Are You a Qualified Individual? This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. Army h&r block Please click the link to view the image. Army h&r block Figure 33-A Are You a Qualified Individual?   You do not have to file this statement with your Form 1040 or Form 1040A, but you must keep it for your records. Army h&r block Veterans. Army h&r block   If the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) certifies that you are permanently and totally disabled, you can substitute VA Form 21-0172, Certification of Permanent and Total Disability, for the physician's statement you are required to keep. Army h&r block VA Form 21-0172 must be signed by a person authorized by the VA to do so. Army h&r block You can get this form from your local VA regional office. Army h&r block Physician's statement obtained in earlier year. Army h&r block   If you got a physician's statement in an earlier year and, due to your continued disabled condition, you were unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity during 2013, you may not need to get another physician's statement for 2013. Army h&r block For a detailed explanation of the conditions you must meet, see the instructions for Schedule R, Part II. Army h&r block If you meet the required conditions, check the box on your Schedule R, Part II, line 2. Army h&r block   If you checked box 4, 5, or 6 in Part I of Schedule R, enter in the space above the box on line 2 in Part II the first name(s) of the spouse(s) for whom the box is checked.

Army h&r block THEN, even if you qualify (see Figure 33-A ), you CANNOT take the credit if. Army h&r block . Army h&r block .

Army h&r block     OR the total of your nontaxable social security and other nontaxable pension(s), annuities, or disability income is equal to or more than. Army h&r block . Army h&r block .

Army h&r block Disability income. Army h&r block   If you are under age 65, you must also have taxable disability income to qualify for the credit. Army h&r block Disability income must meet both of the following requirements. Army h&r block It must be paid under your employer's accident or health plan or pension plan. Army h&r block It must be included in your income as wages (or payments instead of wages) for the time you are absent from work because of permanent and total disability. Army h&r block Payments that are not disability income. Army h&r block   Any payment you receive from a plan that does not provide for disability retirement is not disability income. Army h&r block Any lump-sum payment for accrued annual leave that you receive when you retire on disability is a salary payment and is not disability income. Army h&r block   For purposes of the credit for the elderly or the disabled, disability income does not include amounts you receive after you reach mandatory retirement age. Army h&r block Mandatory retirement age is the age set by your employer at which you would have had to retire, had you not become disabled. Army h&r block Income Limits To determine if you can claim the credit, you must consider two income limits. Army h&r block The first limit is the amount of your adjusted gross income (AGI). Army h&r block The second limit is the amount of nontaxable social security and other nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income you received. Army h&r block The limits are shown in Table 33-1. Army h&r block If your AGI and nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are less than the income limits, you may be able to claim the credit. Army h&r block See How to Claim the Credit , later. Army h&r block If either your AGI or your nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are equal to or more than the income limits, you cannot take the credit. Army h&r block How to Claim the Credit You can figure the credit yourself or the Internal Revenue Service will figure it for you. Army h&r block Credit Figured for You If you choose to have the IRS figure the credit for you, read the following discussion for the form you will file (Form 1040 or 1040A). Army h&r block If you want the IRS to figure your tax, see chapter 30. Army h&r block Form 1040. Army h&r block   If you want the IRS to figure your credit, see Form 1040 Line Entries under Tax Figured by IRS in chapter 30. Army h&r block Form 1040A. Army h&r block   If you want the IRS to figure your credit, see Form 1040A Line Entries under Tax Figured by IRS in chapter 30. Army h&r block Credit Figured by You If you choose to figure the credit yourself, fill out the front of Schedule R. Army h&r block Next, fill out Schedule R, Part III. Army h&r block If you file Form 1040A, enter the amount from Schedule R, line 22, on Form 1040A, line 30. Army h&r block If you file Form 1040, include the amount from Schedule R, line 22, on line 53; check box c, and enter “Sch R” on the line next to that box. Army h&r block For a step-by-step discussion about filling out Part III of Schedule R, see Figuring the Credit Yourself in Publication 524. Army h&r block Limit on credit. Army h&r block   The amount of the credit you can claim is generally limited to the amount of your tax. Army h&r block Use the Credit Limit Worksheet in the Instructions for Schedule R to determine if your credit is limited. Army h&r block Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications
