Ez1040 form If more than one filing status applies to you, choose the one that will give you the lowest tax. Ez1040 form Marital Status In general, your filing status depends on whether you are considered unmarried or married. Ez1040 form Unmarried persons. Ez1040 form    You are considered unmarried for the whole year if, on the last day of your tax year, you are unmarried or legally separated from your spouse under a divorce or separate maintenance decree. Ez1040 form   State law governs whether you are married or legally separated under a divorce or separate maintenance decree. Ez1040 form Divorced persons. Ez1040 form    If you are divorced under a final decree by the last day of the year, you are considered unmarried for the whole year. Ez1040 form Divorce and remarriage. Ez1040 form    If you obtain a divorce for the sole purpose of filing tax returns as unmarried individuals, and at the time of divorce you intend to and do, in fact, remarry each other in the next tax year, you and your spouse must file as married individuals in both years.

Ez1040 form However, if you had an extension to file (for example, until October 15) but you filed earlier and we received it on July 1, your return is considered filed on July 1. Ez1040 form Head of household or qualifying widow(er) with dependent child. Ez1040 form    If you are considered unmarried, you may be able to file as a head of household or as a qualifying widow(er) with a dependent child.

Ez1040 form You are separated under an interlocutory (not final) decree of divorce. Ez1040 form Same-sex marriage. Ez1040 form    For federal tax purposes, individuals of the same sex are married if they were lawfully married in a state (or foreign country) whose laws authorize the marriage of two individuals of the same sex, even if the state (or foreign country) in which they now live does not recognize same-sex marriage. Ez1040 form The term "spouse" includes an individual married to a person of the same sex if the couple is lawfully married under state (or foreign) law. Ez1040 form However, individuals who have entered into a registered domestic partnership, civil union, or other similar relationship that is not called a marriage under state (or foreign) law are not married for federal tax purposes. Ez1040 form   The word “state” as used here includes the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and U. Ez1040 form S. Ez1040 form territories and possessions. Ez1040 form It means any domestic jurisdiction that has the legal authority to sanction marriages. Ez1040 form The term “foreign country” means any foreign jurisdiction that has the legal authority to sanction marriages. Ez1040 form   If individuals of the same sex are married, they generally must use the married filing jointly or married filing separately filing status. Ez1040 form However, if they did not live together during the last 6 months of the year, one or both of them may be able to use the head of household filing status, as explained later.

Ez1040 form Also, your tax may be lower, and you may be able to claim the earned income credit. Ez1040 form See Head of Household , later.

Ez1040 form See Table 4. Ez1040 form Example 4—girlfriend's child. Ez1040 form The facts are the same as in Example 3 except your girlfriend's 10-year-old son also lived with you all year. Ez1040 form He is not your qualifying child and, because he is your girlfriend's qualifying child, he is not your qualifying relative (see Not a Qualifying Child Test , later).

Ez1040 form Your spouse died in 2011 or 2012 and you did not remarry before the end of 2013. Ez1040 form You have a child or stepchild for whom you can claim an exemption. Ez1040 form This does not include a foster child. Ez1040 form This child lived in your home all year, except for temporary absences. Ez1040 form See Temporary absences , earlier, under Head of Household. Ez1040 form There are also exceptions, described later, for a child who was born or died during the year and for a kidnapped child. Ez1040 form You paid more than half the cost of keeping up a home for the year. Ez1040 form See Keeping Up a Home , earlier, under Head of Household. Ez1040 form Example. Ez1040 form John's wife died in 2011. Ez1040 form John has not remarried. Ez1040 form He has continued during 2012 and 2013 to keep up a home for himself and his child, who lives with him and for whom he can claim an exemption. Ez1040 form For 2011 he was entitled to file a joint return for himself and his deceased wife. Ez1040 form For 2012 and 2013, he can file as a qualifying widower with a dependent child. Ez1040 form After 2013, he can file as head of household if he qualifies. Ez1040 form Death or birth. Ez1040 form    You may be eligible to file as a qualifying widow(er) with dependent child if the child who qualifies you for this filing status is born or dies during the year. Ez1040 form You must have provided more than half of the cost of keeping up a home that was the child's main home during the entire part of the year he or she was alive. Ez1040 form Kidnapped child. Ez1040 form    You may be eligible to file as a qualifying widow(er) with dependent child even if the child who qualifies you for this filing status has been kidnapped. Ez1040 form You can claim qualifying widow(er) with dependent child filing status if all the following statements are true. Ez1040 form The child is presumed by law enforcement authorities to have been kidnapped by someone who is not a member of your family or the child's family. Ez1040 form In the year of the kidnapping, the child lived with you for more than half the part of the year before the kidnapping. Ez1040 form You would have qualified for qualifying widow(er) with dependent child filing status if the child had not been kidnapped. Ez1040 form As mentioned earlier, this filing status is available for only 2 years following the year your spouse died. Ez1040 form Exemptions Exemptions reduce your taxable income. Ez1040 form You can deduct $3,900 for each exemption you claim in 2013. Ez1040 form If you are entitled to two exemptions for 2013, you can deduct $7,800 ($3,900 × 2). Ez1040 form But you may lose the benefit of part or all of your exemptions if your adjusted gross income is above a certain amount. Ez1040 form See Phaseout of Exemptions , later. Ez1040 form Types of exemptions. Ez1040 form    There are two types of exemptions you may be able to take: Personal exemptions for yourself and your spouse, and Exemptions for dependents (dependency exemptions). Ez1040 form While each is worth the same amount ($3,900 for 2013), different rules, discussed later, apply to each type. Ez1040 form Dependent cannot claim a personal exemption. Ez1040 form    If you are entitled to claim an exemption for a dependent (such as your child), that dependent cannot claim a personal exemption on his or her own tax return. Ez1040 form How to claim exemptions. Ez1040 form    How you claim an exemption on your tax return depends on which form you file. Ez1040 form Form 1040EZ filers. Ez1040 form    If you file Form 1040EZ, the exemption amount is combined with the standard deduction and entered on line 5. Ez1040 form Form 1040A filers. Ez1040 form    If you file Form 1040A, complete lines 6a through 6d. Ez1040 form The total number of exemptions you can claim is the total in the box on line 6d. Ez1040 form Also complete line 26. Ez1040 form Form 1040 filers. Ez1040 form    If you file Form 1040, complete lines 6a through 6d. Ez1040 form The total number of exemptions you can claim is the total in the box on line 6d. Ez1040 form Also complete line 42. Ez1040 form If your adjusted gross income is more than $150,000, see Phaseout of Exemptions , later. Ez1040 form U. Ez1040 form S. Ez1040 form citizen or resident alien. Ez1040 form    If you are a U. Ez1040 form S. Ez1040 form citizen, U. Ez1040 form S. Ez1040 form resident alien, U. Ez1040 form S. Ez1040 form national (defined later) or a resident of Canada or Mexico, you may qualify for any of the exemptions discussed here. Ez1040 form Nonresident aliens. Ez1040 form    Generally, if you are a nonresident alien (other than a resident of Canada or Mexico, or certain residents of India or Korea), you can qualify for only one personal exemption for yourself. Ez1040 form You cannot claim exemptions for a spouse or dependents. Ez1040 form   These restrictions do not apply if you are a nonresident alien married to a U. Ez1040 form S. Ez1040 form citizen or resident alien and have chosen to be treated as a resident of the United States. Ez1040 form More information. Ez1040 form    For more information on exemptions if you are a nonresident alien, see chapter 5 in Publication 519. Ez1040 form Dual-status taxpayers. Ez1040 form    If you have been both a nonresident alien and a resident alien in the same tax year, you should see Publication 519 for information on determining your exemptions. Ez1040 form Personal Exemptions You are generally allowed one exemption for yourself. Ez1040 form If you are married, you may be allowed one exemption for your spouse. Ez1040 form These are called personal exemptions. Ez1040 form Your Own Exemption You can take one exemption for yourself unless you can be claimed as a dependent by another taxpayer. Ez1040 form If another taxpayer is entitled to claim you as a dependent, you cannot take an exemption for yourself even if the other taxpayer does not actually claim you as a dependent. Ez1040 form Your Spouse's Exemption Your spouse is never considered your dependent. Ez1040 form Joint return. Ez1040 form    On a joint return, you can claim one exemption for yourself and one for your spouse. Ez1040 form Separate return. Ez1040 form    If you file a separate return, you can claim an exemption for your spouse only if your spouse had no gross income, is not filing a return, and was not the dependent of another taxpayer. Ez1040 form This is true even if the other taxpayer does not actually claim your spouse as a dependent. Ez1040 form You can claim an exemption for your spouse even if he or she is a nonresident alien; in that case, your spouse must have no gross income for U. Ez1040 form S. Ez1040 form tax purposes and satisfy the other conditions listed above. Ez1040 form Head of household. Ez1040 form    If you qualify for head of household filing status because you are considered unmarried, you can claim an exemption for your spouse if the conditions described in the preceding paragraph are satisfied. Ez1040 form   To claim the exemption for your spouse, check the box on line 6b of Form 1040 or Form 1040A and enter the name of your spouse in the space to the right of the box. Ez1040 form Enter the SSN or ITIN of your spouse in the space provided at the top of Form 1040 or Form 1040A. Ez1040 form Death of spouse. Ez1040 form    If your spouse died during the year and you file a joint return for yourself and your deceased spouse, you generally can claim your spouse's exemption under the rules just explained in Joint return . Ez1040 form If you file a separate return for the year, you may be able to claim your spouse's exemption under the rules just described in Separate return . Ez1040 form   If you remarried during the year, you cannot take an exemption for your deceased spouse. Ez1040 form   If you are a surviving spouse without gross income and you remarry in the year your spouse died, you can be claimed as an exemption on both the final separate return of your deceased spouse and the separate return of your new spouse for that year. Ez1040 form If you file a joint return with your new spouse, you can be claimed as an exemption only on that return. Ez1040 form Divorced or separated spouse. Ez1040 form    If you obtained a final decree of divorce or separate maintenance during the year, you cannot take your former spouse's exemption. Ez1040 form This rule applies even if you provided all of your former spouse's support. Ez1040 form Exemptions for Dependents You are allowed one exemption for each person you can claim as a dependent. Ez1040 form You can claim an exemption for a dependent even if your dependent files a return. Ez1040 form The term “dependent” means: A qualifying child, or A qualifying relative. Ez1040 form The terms “ qualifying child ” and “ qualifying relative ” are defined later. Ez1040 form You can claim an exemption for a qualifying child or qualifying relative only if these three tests are met. Ez1040 form Dependent taxpayer test. Ez1040 form Joint return test. Ez1040 form Citizen or resident test. Ez1040 form These three tests are explained in detail later. Ez1040 form All the requirements for claiming an exemption for a dependent are summarized in Table 5. Ez1040 form Table 5. Ez1040 form Overview of the Rules for Claiming an Exemption for a Dependent This table is only an overview of the rules. Ez1040 form For details, see the rest of this publication. Ez1040 form You cannot claim any dependents if you, or your spouse if filing jointly, could be claimed as a dependent by another taxpayer. Ez1040 form   You cannot claim a married person who files a joint return as a dependent unless that joint return is filed only to claim a refund of withheld income tax or estimated tax paid. Ez1040 form   You cannot claim a person as a dependent unless that person is a U. Ez1040 form S. Ez1040 form citizen, U. Ez1040 form S. Ez1040 form resident alien, U. Ez1040 form S. Ez1040 form national, or a resident of Canada or Mexico. Ez1040 form 1  You cannot claim a person as a dependent unless that person is your qualifying child or qualifying relative. Ez1040 form   Tests To Be a Qualifying Child Tests To Be a Qualifying Relative The child must be your son, daughter, stepchild, foster child, brother, sister, half brother, half sister, stepbrother, stepsister, or a descendant of any of them. Ez1040 form   The child must be (a) under age 19 at the end of the year and younger than you (or your spouse if filing jointly), (b) under age 24 at the end of the year, a student, and younger than you (or your spouse if filing jointly), or (c) any age if permanently and totally disabled. Ez1040 form   The child must have lived with you for more than half of the year. Ez1040 form 2  The child must not have provided more than half of his or her own support for the year. Ez1040 form   The child is not filing a joint return for the year (unless that joint return is filed only to claim a refund of withheld income tax or estimated tax paid). Ez1040 form  If the child meets the rules to be a qualifying child of more than one person, only one person can actually treat the child as a qualifying child. Ez1040 form See the Special Rule for Qualifying Child of More Than One Person described later to find out which person is the person entitled to claim the child as a qualifying child. Ez1040 form The person cannot be your qualifying child or the qualifying child of any other taxpayer. Ez1040 form   The person either (a) must be related to you in one of the ways listed under Relatives who do not have to live with you , or (b) must live with you all year as a member of your household2 (and your relationship must not violate local law). Ez1040 form   The person's gross income for the year must be less than $3,900. Ez1040 form 3  You must provide more than half of the person's total support for the year. Ez1040 form 4  1 There is an exception for certain adopted children. Ez1040 form 2 There are exceptions for temporary absences, children who were born or died during the year, children of divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart), and kidnapped children. Ez1040 form 3 There is an exception if the person is disabled and has income from a sheltered workshop. Ez1040 form 4 There are exceptions for multiple support agreements, children of divorced or separated parents (or parents who live apart), and kidnapped children. Ez1040 form Dependent not allowed a personal exemption. Ez1040 form If you can claim an exemption for your dependent, the dependent cannot claim his or her own personal exemption on his or her own tax return. Ez1040 form This is true even if you do not claim the dependent's exemption on your return. Ez1040 form It is also true if the dependent's exemption on your return is reduced or eliminated under the phaseout rule described under Phaseout of Exemptions, later. Ez1040 form Housekeepers, maids, or servants. Ez1040 form    If these people work for you, you cannot claim exemptions for them. Ez1040 form Child tax credit. Ez1040 form    You may be entitled to a child tax credit for each qualifying child who was under age 17 at the end of the year if you claimed an exemption for that child. Ez1040 form For more information, see the instructions for the tax form you file (Form 1040 or 1040A). Ez1040 form Dependent Taxpayer Test If you can be claimed as a dependent by another person, you cannot claim anyone else as a dependent. Ez1040 form Even if you have a qualifying child or qualifying relative, you cannot claim that person as a dependent. Ez1040 form If you are filing a joint return and your spouse can be claimed as a dependent by someone else, you and your spouse cannot claim any dependents on your joint return. Ez1040 form Joint Return Test You generally cannot claim a married person as a dependent if he or she files a joint return. Ez1040 form Exception. Ez1040 form    You can claim an exemption for a person who files a joint return if that person and his or her spouse file the joint return only to claim a refund of income tax withheld or estimated tax paid. Ez1040 form Example 1—child files joint return. Ez1040 form You supported your 18-year-old daughter, and she lived with you all year while her husband was in the Armed Forces. Ez1040 form He earned $25,000 for the year. Ez1040 form The couple files a joint return. Ez1040 form You cannot take an exemption for your daughter. Ez1040 form Example 2—child files joint return only as claim for refund of withheld tax. Ez1040 form Your 18-year-old son and his 17-year-old wife had $800 of wages from part-time jobs and no other income. Ez1040 form Neither is required to file a tax return. Ez1040 form They do not have a child. Ez1040 form Taxes were taken out of their pay so they file a joint return only to get a refund of the withheld taxes. Ez1040 form The exception to the joint return test applies, so you are not disqualified from claiming an exemption for each of them just because they file a joint return. Ez1040 form You can claim exemptions for each of them if all the other tests to do so are met. Ez1040 form Example 3—child files joint return to claim American opportunity credit. Ez1040 form The facts are the same as in Example 2 except no taxes were taken out of your son's pay. Ez1040 form He and his wife are not required to file a tax return. Ez1040 form However, they file a joint return to claim an American opportunity credit of $124 and get a refund of that amount. Ez1040 form Because claiming the American opportunity credit is their reason for filing the return, they are not filing it only to get a refund of income

Affordable Care Act Tax Provisions for Employers

The Affordable Care Act, or health care law, contains benefits and responsibilities for employers. The size and structure of your workforce – small, large, or part of a group – helps determine what applies to you. However, if you have no employees, the following information does not apply to you.

 Small Employers
 
Large Employers
 
Small employers, generally those with fewer than 50 full-time employees, may be eligible for credits and other benefits.
 
  > More…
 
A large employer has 50 or more full-time employees or equivalents.
 
  > More…

 

How do I know if I am a small or large employer? Why does it matter?

An employer’s size is determined by the number of its employees. Employer benefits, opportunities and requirements are dependent upon the employer’s size and the applicable rules. Generally, an employer with 50 or more full-time employees or equivalents will be considered a large employer.

Employers with:

  • Fewer than 25 full-time equivalent employees may be eligible for a Small Business Health Care Tax Credit to help cover the cost of providing coverage.
  • Generally 50 or fewer employees may be eligible to buy coverage through the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP). Learn more at HealthCare.gov
  • 50 or more full-time equivalent employees will need to file an annual return reporting whether and what health insurance they offered employees. In addition, they are subject to the Employer Shared Responsibility provisions.

Certain affiliated employers with common ownership or part of a controlled group must aggregate their employees to determine their workforce size. Proposed regulations (pdf) and FAQs provide more information about determining the size of your workforce.
