Free irs tax preparation 2. Free irs tax preparation   Possession Source Income Table of Contents Types of IncomeCompensation for Labor or Personal Services Investment Income Sales or Other Dispositions of Property Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, Prizes, and Awards Effectively Connected Income In order to determine where to file your return and which form(s) you need to complete, you must determine the source of each item of income you received during the tax year. Free irs tax preparation Income you received from sources within, or that was effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business within, the relevant possession must be identified separately from U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation or foreign source income. Free irs tax preparation This chapter discusses the rules for determining if the source of your income is from: American Samoa, The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico), Guam, or The U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation Virgin Islands (USVI). Free irs tax preparation Generally, the same rules that apply for determining U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation source income also apply for determining possession source income. Free irs tax preparation However, there are some important exceptions to these rules. Free irs tax preparation Both the general rules and the exceptions are discussed in this chapter. Free irs tax preparation U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation income rule. Free irs tax preparation   This rule states that income is not possession source income if, under the rules of Internal Revenue Code sections 861–865, it is treated as income: From sources within the United States, or Effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business within the United States. Free irs tax preparation Table 2-1 shows the general rules for determining whether income is from sources within the United States. Free irs tax preparation Table 2-1.

Free irs tax preparation Source of Income Item of Income Factor Determining Source Salaries, wages, and other compensation for labor or personal services Where labor or services performed Pensions Contributions: Where services were performed that earned the pension Investment earnings: Where pension trust is located Interest Residence of payer Dividends Where corporation created or organized Rents Location of property Royalties:   Natural resources Location of property Patents, copyrights, etc. Free irs tax preparation Where property is used Sale of business inventory—purchased Where sold Sale of business inventory—produced Allocation if produced and sold in different locations Sale of real property Location of property Sale of personal property Seller's tax home (but see Special Rules for Gains From Dispositions of Certain Property , later, for exceptions) Sale of natural resources Allocation based on fair market value of product at export terminal. Free irs tax preparation For more information, see Regulations section 1. Free irs tax preparation 863-1(b). Free irs tax preparation Types of Income This section looks at the most common types of income received by individuals, and the rules for determining the source of the income. Free irs tax preparation Generally, the same rules shown in Table 2-1 are used to determine if you have possession source income. Free irs tax preparation Compensation for Labor or Personal Services Income from labor or personal services includes wages, salaries, commissions, fees, per diem allowances, employee allowances and bonuses, and fringe benefits. Free irs tax preparation It also includes income earned by sole proprietors and general partners from providing personal services in the course of their trade or business. Free irs tax preparation Services performed wholly within a relevant possession. Free irs tax preparation   Generally, all pay you receive for services performed in a relevant possession is considered to be from sources within that possession. Free irs tax preparation However, there is an exception for income earned as a member of the U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation Armed Forces or a civilian spouse. Free irs tax preparation U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation Armed Forces. Free irs tax preparation   If you are a bona fide resident of a relevant possession, your military service pay will be sourced in that possession even if you perform the services in the United States or another possession. Free irs tax preparation However, if you are not a bona fide resident of a possession, your military service pay will be income from the  United States even if you perform services in a possession. Free irs tax preparation Civilian spouse of active duty member of the U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation Armed Forces. Free irs tax preparation   If you are a bona fide resident of a U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation possession and choose to keep that possession as your tax residence under MSRRA when relocating with your servicemember spouse under military orders, the source of income for your labor or personal services is considered to be that possession. Free irs tax preparation Likewise, if your tax residence is in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia before relocating and you choose to keep it as your tax residence, the source of income for services performed in any of the U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation possessions is considered to be the United States and, specifically, your state of residence or the District of Columbia. Free irs tax preparation Services performed partly inside and partly outside a relevant possession. Free irs tax preparation   If you are an employee and receive compensation for labor or personal services performed both inside and outside the relevant possession, special rules apply in determining the source of the compensation. Free irs tax preparation Compensation (other than certain fringe benefits) is sourced on a time basis. Free irs tax preparation Certain fringe benefits (such as housing and education) are sourced on a geographical basis. Free irs tax preparation   Or, you may be permitted to use an alternative basis to determine the source of compensation. Free irs tax preparation See Alternative basis , later. Free irs tax preparation   If you are self-employed, determine the source of your income for labor or personal services from self-employment on the basis that most correctly reflects the proper source of that income under the facts and circumstances of your particular case. Free irs tax preparation In many cases, the facts and circumstances will call for an apportionment on a time basis as explained next. Free irs tax preparation Time basis. Free irs tax preparation   Use a time basis to figure your compensation for labor or personal services from the relevant possession (other than the fringe benefits discussed later). Free irs tax preparation Do this by multiplying your total compensation (other than the fringe benefits discussed later) by the following fraction:   Number of days you performed  services in the relevant  possession during the year     Total number of days you  performed services during the year           You can use a unit of time less than a day in the above fraction, if appropriate. Free irs tax preparation The time period for which the income is made does not have to be a year. Free irs tax preparation Instead, you can use another distinct, separate, and continuous time period if you can establish to the satisfaction of the IRS that this other period is more appropriate. Free irs tax preparation Example. Free irs tax preparation In 2013, you worked in your employer's office in the United States for 60 days and in the Puerto Rico office for 180 days, earning a total of $80,000 for the year. Free irs tax preparation Your Puerto Rico source income is $60,000, figured as follows. Free irs tax preparation       180 days 240 days × $80,000 = $60,000                 Multi-year compensation. Free irs tax preparation   The source of multi-year compensation is generally determined on a time basis over the period to which the compensation is attributable. Free irs tax preparation Multi-year compensation is compensation that is included in your income in 1 tax year but is attributable to a period that includes 2 or more tax years. Free irs tax preparation You determine the period to which the income is attributable based on the facts and circumstances of your case. Free irs tax preparation For more information on multi-year compensation, see Treasury Decision (T. Free irs tax preparation D. Free irs tax preparation ) 9212 and Regulations section 1. Free irs tax preparation 861-4, 2005-35 I. Free irs tax preparation R. Free irs tax preparation B. Free irs tax preparation 429, available at www. Free irs tax preparation irs. Free irs tax preparation gov/irb/2005-35_IRB/ar14. Free irs tax preparation html. Free irs tax preparation Certain fringe benefits sourced on a geographical basis. Free irs tax preparation   If you received any of the following fringe benefits as compensation for labor or services performed as an employee partly inside and partly outside a relevant possession, you must source that income on a geographical basis. Free irs tax preparation Housing. Free irs tax preparation Education. Free irs tax preparation Local transportation. Free irs tax preparation Tax reimbursement. Free irs tax preparation Hazardous or hardship duty pay. Free irs tax preparation Moving expense reimbursement. Free irs tax preparation For information on determining the source of the fringe benefits listed above, see Regulations section 1. Free irs tax preparation 861-4. Free irs tax preparation Alternative basis. Free irs tax preparation   You can determine the source of your compensation under an alternative basis if you establish to the satisfaction of the IRS that, under the facts and circumstances of your case, the alternative basis more properly determines the source of your income than the time or geographical basis. Free irs tax preparation If you use an alternative basis, you must keep (and have available for inspection) records to document why the alternative basis more properly determines the source of your income. Free irs tax preparation De minimis exception. Free irs tax preparation   There is an exception to the rule for determining the source of income earned in a possession. Free irs tax preparation Generally, you will not have income from a possession if during a tax year you: Are a U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation citizen or resident, Are not a bona fide resident of that possession, Are not employed by or under contract with an individual, partnership, or corporation that is engaged in a trade or business in that possession, Temporarily perform services in that possession for 90 days or less, and Earned $3,000 or less from such services. Free irs tax preparation This exception began with income earned during your 2008 tax year. Free irs tax preparation Pensions. Free irs tax preparation   Generally, pension income has two components: contributions to the pension plan and the earnings accrued from investing those contributions. Free irs tax preparation The contribution portion is sourced according to where services were performed that earned the pension. Free irs tax preparation The investment earnings portion is sourced according to the location of the pension trust. Free irs tax preparation Example. Free irs tax preparation You are a U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation citizen who worked in Puerto Rico for a U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation company. Free irs tax preparation All services were performed in Puerto Rico. Free irs tax preparation Upon retirement you remained in Puerto Rico and began receiving your pension from the U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation pension trust of your employer. Free irs tax preparation Distributions from the U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation pension trust must be allocated between (1) contributions, which are Puerto Rico source income, and (2) investment earnings, which are U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation source income. Free irs tax preparation Investment Income This category includes such income as interest, dividends, rents, and royalties. Free irs tax preparation Interest income. Free irs tax preparation   The source of interest income is generally determined by the residence of the payer. Free irs tax preparation Interest paid by corporations created or organized in a relevant possession (possession corporation) or by individuals who are bona fide residents of a relevant possession is considered income from sources within that possession. Free irs tax preparation   However, there is an exception to this rule if you are a bona fide resident of a relevant possession, receive interest from a corporation created or organized in that possession, and are a shareholder of that corporation who owns, directly or indirectly, at least 10% of the total voting stock of the corporation. Free irs tax preparation See Regulations section 1. Free irs tax preparation 937-2(i) for more information. Free irs tax preparation Dividends. Free irs tax preparation   Generally, dividends paid by a corporation created or organized in a relevant possession will be considered income from sources within that possession. Free irs tax preparation There are additional rules for bona fide residents of a relevant possession who receive dividend income from possession corporations, and who own, directly or indirectly, at least 10% of the voting stock of the corporation. Free irs tax preparation For more information, see Regulations section 1. Free irs tax preparation 937-2(g). Free irs tax preparation Rental income. Free irs tax preparation   Rents from property located in a relevant possession are treated as income from sources within that possession. Free irs tax preparation Royalties. Free irs tax preparation   Royalties from natural resources located in a relevant possession are considered income from sources within that possession. Free irs tax preparation   Also considered possession source income are royalties received for the use of, or for the privilege of using, in a relevant possession, patents, copyrights, secret processes and formulas, goodwill, trademarks, trade brands, franchises, and other like property. Free irs tax preparation Sales or Other Dispositions of Property The source rules for sales or other dispositions of property are varied. Free irs tax preparation The most common situations are discussed below. Free irs tax preparation Real property. Free irs tax preparation   Real property includes land and buildings, and generally anything built on, growing on, or attached to land. Free irs tax preparation The location of the property generally determines the source of income from the sale. Free irs tax preparation For example, if you are a bona fide resident of Guam and sell your home that is located in Guam, the gain on the sale is sourced in Guam. Free irs tax preparation If, however, the home you sold was located in the United States, the gain is U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation source income. Free irs tax preparation Personal property. Free irs tax preparation   The term “personal property” refers to property (such as machinery, equipment, or furniture) that is not real property. Free irs tax preparation Generally, gain (or loss) from the sale or other disposition is sourced according to the seller's tax home. Free irs tax preparation If personal property is sold by a bona fide resident of a relevant possession, the gain (or loss) from the sale is treated as sourced within that possession. Free irs tax preparation   This rule does not apply to the sale of inventory, intangible property, depreciable personal property, or property sold through a foreign office or fixed place of business. Free irs tax preparation The rules applying to sales of inventory are discussed below. Free irs tax preparation For information on sales of the other types of property mentioned, see Internal Revenue Code section 865. Free irs tax preparation Inventory. Free irs tax preparation   Your inventory is personal property that is stock in trade or that is held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of your trade or business. Free irs tax preparation The source of income from the sale of inventory depends on whether the inventory was purchased or produced. Free irs tax preparation Purchased. Free irs tax preparation   Income from the sale of inventory that you purchased is sourced where you sell the property. Free irs tax preparation Generally, this is where title to the property passes to the buyer. Free irs tax preparation Produced. Free irs tax preparation   Income from the sale of inventory that you produced in a relevant possession and sold outside that possession (or vice versa) is sourced based on an allocation. Free irs tax preparation For information on making the allocation, see Regulations section 1. Free irs tax preparation 863-3(f). Free irs tax preparation Special Rules for Gains From Dispositions of Certain Property There are special rules for gains from dispositions of certain investment property (for example, stocks, bonds, debt instruments, diamonds, and gold) owned by a U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation citizen or resident alien prior to becoming a bona fide resident of a possession. Free irs tax preparation You are subject to these special rules if you meet both of the following conditions. Free irs tax preparation For the tax year for which the source of the gain must be determined, you are a bona fide resident of the relevant possession. Free irs tax preparation For any of the 10 years preceding that year, you were a citizen or resident alien of the United States (other than a bona fide resident of the relevant possession). Free irs tax preparation If you meet these conditions, gains from the disposition of this property will not be treated as income from sources within the relevant possession for purposes of the Internal Revenue Code. Free irs tax preparation Accordingly, bona fide residents of American Samoa and Puerto Rico, for example, may not exclude the gain on their U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation tax return. Free irs tax preparation (See chapter 3 for additional filing information. Free irs tax preparation ) With respect to the CNMI, Guam, and the USVI, the gain from the disposition of this property will not meet the requirements for certain tax rules that may allow bona fide residents of those possessions to reduce or obtain a rebate of taxes on income from sources within the relevant possessions. Free irs tax preparation These rules apply to dispositions after April 11, 2005. Free irs tax preparation For details, see Regulations section 1. Free irs tax preparation 937-2(f)(1) and Examples 1 and 2 of section 1. Free irs tax preparation 937-2(k). Free irs tax preparation Example 1. Free irs tax preparation In 2007, Cheryl Jones, a U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation citizen, lived in the United States and paid $1,000 for 100 shares of stock in the Rose Corporation, a U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation corporation listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Free irs tax preparation On March 1, 2010, she moved to Puerto Rico and changed her tax home to Puerto Rico on the same date. Free irs tax preparation Cheryl satisfied the presence test in 2010 and, under the year-of-move exception, she was considered a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico for the rest of 2010. Free irs tax preparation On March 1, 2010, the closing value of Cheryl's stock in the Rose Corporation was $2,000. Free irs tax preparation On January 5, 2013, while still a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico, Cheryl sold all her Rose Corporation stock for $7,000. Free irs tax preparation Under the earlier rules, none of Cheryl's $6,000 gain will be treated as income from sources within Puerto Rico. Free irs tax preparation The source rules discussed in the preceding paragraphs supplement, and may apply in conjunction with, an existing special rule. Free irs tax preparation This existing special rule applies if you are a U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation citizen or resident alien who becomes a bona fide resident of American Samoa, the CNMI, or Guam, and who has gain from the disposition of certain U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation assets during the 10-year period beginning when you became a bona fide resident. Free irs tax preparation The gain is U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation source income that generally is subject to U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation tax if the property is either (1) located in the United States; (2) stock issued by a U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation corporation or a debt obligation of a U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation person or of the United States, a state (or political subdivision), or the District of Columbia; or (3) property that has a basis in whole or in part by reference to property described in (1) or (2). Free irs tax preparation See chapter 3 for filing information. Free irs tax preparation Special election. Free irs tax preparation   For dispositions after April 11, 2005, you can choose to treat the part of gain (or loss) attributable to the time you held the property while a bona fide resident of the relevant possession (the possession holding period) as gain (or loss) from sources within that possession. Free irs tax preparation Make the election by reporting the gain attributable to the possession holding period on your income tax return for the year of disposition. Free irs tax preparation This election overrides both of the special rules discussed earlier. Free irs tax preparation   There are two methods for figuring the gain for the possession holding period, one for marketable securities and another for other types of investment property. Free irs tax preparation Marketable securities. Free irs tax preparation   Marketable securities are those actively traded on an established financial market, such as stock in a publicly held corporation. Free irs tax preparation Under the special election, allocate the gain (or loss) by figuring the appreciation separately for your possession and U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation holding periods. Free irs tax preparation   Your possession holding period begins on the first day you do not have a tax home outside the relevant possession. Free irs tax preparation The gain (or loss) attributable to the possession holding period is the difference in fair market value of the security at the close of the market on the first and last days of this holding period. Free irs tax preparation This is your gain (or loss) that is treated as being from sources within the relevant possession. Free irs tax preparation If you were a bona fide resident of the relevant possession for more than one continuous period, combine the gains (or losses) from each possession holding period. Free irs tax preparation Example 2. Free irs tax preparation Assume the same facts as in Example 1, except that Cheryl makes the special election to allocate the gain between her U. Free irs tax preparation S. Free irs tax preparation and possession holding periods. Free irs tax preparation Cheryl's possession holding period began March 1, 2010, the date her tax home changed to Puerto Rico. Free irs tax preparation Therefore, the portion of gain attributable to her possession holding period is $5,000 ($7,000 sale price – $2,000 closing value on first day of the possession holding period). Free irs tax preparation By reporting $5,000 of her $6,000 gain as Puerto Rico source income on her 2013 Puerto Rico tax return (and the remainder as non-Puerto Rico source income), Cheryl elects to treat that amount as Puerto Rico source income. Free irs tax preparation Other personal property. Free irs tax preparation   For personal property other than marketable securities, use a time-based allocation. Free irs tax preparation Figure the gain (or loss) attributable to the possession holding period by multiplying your total gain (or loss) by the following fraction. Free irs tax preparation      Number of days in the  possession holding period     Total number of days  in your holding period         The result is your gain (or loss) that is treated as being from sources within the relevant possession. Free irs tax preparation Example 3. Free irs tax preparation In addition to the stock in Rose Corporation, Cheryl acquired a 5% interest in the Alder Partnership on January 1, 2009. Free irs tax preparation On March 1, 2010, when she established bona fide residency in Puerto Rico, her partnership interest was not considered a marketable security. Free irs tax preparation On September 16, 2013, while still a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico, Cheryl sold her interest in Alder Partnership for a $100,000 gain. Free irs tax preparation She had owned the interest for a total of 1,720 days. Free irs tax preparation Cheryl's possession holding period (from March 1, 2010, through September 16, 2013) is 1,296 days. Free irs tax preparation The portion of her gain attributable to Puerto Rico is $75,349 ($100,000 x (1,296 Puerto Rico days ÷ 1,720 total days)). Free irs tax preparation By reporting $75,349 of her $100,000 gain as Puerto Rico source income on her 2013 Puerto Rico tax return (and the remainder as non-Puerto Rico source income), Cheryl elects to treat that amount as Puerto Rico source income. Free irs tax preparation Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, Prizes, and Awards The source of these types of income is generally the residence of the payer, regardless of who actually disburses the funds. Free irs tax preparation Therefore, in order to be possession source income, the payer must be a resident of the relevant possession, such as an individual who is a bona fide resident or a corporation created or organized in that possession. Free irs tax preparation These rules do not apply to amounts paid as salary or other compensation for services. Free irs tax preparation See Compensation for Labor or Personal Services, earlier in this chapter, for the source rules that apply. Free irs tax preparation Effectively Connected Income In limited circumstances, some kinds of income from sources outside the relevant possession must be treated as effectively connected with a trade or business in that possession. Free irs tax preparation These circumstances are listed below. Free irs tax preparation You have an office or other fixed place of business in the relevant possession to which the income can be attributed. Free irs tax preparation That office or place of business is a material factor in producing the income. Free irs tax preparation The income is produced in the ordinary course of the trade or business carried on through that office or other fixed place of business. Free irs tax preparation 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. Free irs tax preparation The three kinds of income from sources outside the relevant possession to which these rules apply are the following. Free irs tax preparation Rents and royalties for the use of, or for the privilege of using, intangible personal property located outside the relevant possession or from any interest in such property. Free irs tax preparation Included are rents or royalties for the use of, or for the privilege of using, outside the relevant possession, 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 relevant possession. Free irs tax preparation Dividends or interest from the active conduct of a banking, financing, or similar business in the relevant possession. Free irs tax preparation Income, gain, or loss from the sale or exchange outside the relevant possession, through the office or other fixed place of business in the relevant possession, 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. Free irs tax preparation Item (3) will not apply if you sold the property for use, consumption, or disposition outside the relevant possession and an office or other fixed place of business in a foreign country was a material factor in the sale. Free irs tax preparation Example. Free irs tax preparation Marcy Jackson is a bona fide resident of American Samoa. Free irs tax preparation Her business, which she conducts from an office in American Samoa, is developing and selling specialized computer software. Free irs tax preparation A software purchaser will frequently pay Marcy an additional amount to install the software on the purchaser's operating system and to ensure that the software is functioning properly. Free irs tax preparation Marcy installs the software at the purchaser's place of business, which may be in American Samoa, in the United States, or in another country. Free irs tax preparation The income from selling the software is effectively connected with the conduct of Marcy's business in American Samoa, even though the product's destination may be outside the possession. Free irs tax preparation However, the compensation she receives for installing the software (personal services) outside of American Samoa is not effectively connected with the conduct of her business in the possession—the income is sourced where she performs the services.
