Free state and federal tax return For more information, see Publication 501, Exemptions, Standard Deduction, and Filing Information. Free state and federal tax return Figure A. Free state and federal tax return Are You a Qualified Individual? Please click here for the text description of the image. Free state and federal tax return figure a 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 ). Free state and federal tax return 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. Free state and federal tax return Even if you do not retire formally, you may be considered retired on disability when you have stopped working because of your disability. Free state and federal tax return 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. Free state and federal tax return You are considered to be under age 65 at the end of 2013 if you were born after January 1, 1949. Free state and federal tax return Permanent and total disability. Free state and federal tax return    You are permanently and totally disabled if you cannot engage in any substantial gainful activity because of your physical or mental condition. Free state and federal tax return 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. Free state and federal tax return See Physician's statement , later. Free state and federal tax return Substantial gainful activity. Free state and federal tax return   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. Free state and federal tax return 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. Free state and federal tax return   Substantial gainful activity is not work you do to take care of yourself or your home. Free state and federal tax return It is not unpaid work on hobbies, institutional therapy or training, school attendance, clubs, social programs, and similar activities. Free state and federal tax return However, doing this kind of work may show that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Free state and federal tax return    The fact that you have not worked for some time is not, of itself, conclusive evidence that you cannot engage in substantial gainful activity. Free state and federal tax return   The following examples illustrate the tests of substantial gainful activity. Free state and federal tax return Example 1. Free state and federal tax return Trisha, a sales clerk, retired on disability. Free state and federal tax return She is 53 years old and now works as a full-time babysitter for the minimum wage. Free state and federal tax return Even though Trisha is doing different work, she is able to do the duties of her new job in a full-time competitive work situation for the minimum wage. Free state and federal tax return She cannot take the credit because she is able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Free state and federal tax return Example 2. Free state and federal tax return Tom, a bookkeeper, retired on disability. Free state and federal tax return He is 59 years old and now drives a truck for a charitable organization. Free state and federal tax return He sets his own hours and is not paid. Free state and federal tax return Duties of this nature generally are performed for pay or profit. Free state and federal tax return Some weeks he works 10 hours, and some weeks he works 40 hours. Free state and federal tax return Over the year he averages 20 hours a week. Free state and federal tax return The kind of work and his average hours a week conclusively show that Tom is able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Free state and federal tax return This is true even though Tom is not paid and he sets his own hours. Free state and federal tax return He cannot take the credit. Free state and federal tax return Example 3. Free state and federal tax return John, who retired on disability, took a job with a former employer on a trial basis. Free state and federal tax return The purpose of the job was to see if John could do the work. Free state and federal tax return The trial period lasted for 6 months during which John was paid the minimum wage. Free state and federal tax return Because of John's disability, he was assigned only light duties of a nonproductive “make-work” nature. Free state and federal tax return The activity was gainful because John was paid at least the minimum wage. Free state and federal tax return But the activity was not substantial because his duties were nonproductive. Free state and federal tax return These facts do not, by themselves, show that John is able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Free state and federal tax return Example 4. Free state and federal tax return Joan, who retired on disability from a job as a bookkeeper, lives with her sister who manages several motel units. Free state and federal tax return Joan helps her sister for 1 or 2 hours a day by performing duties such as washing dishes, answering phones, registering guests, and bookkeeping. Free state and federal tax return Joan can select the time of day when she feels most fit to work. Free state and federal tax return Work of this nature, performed off and on during the day at Joan's convenience, is not activity of a “substantial and gainful” nature even if she is paid for the work. Free state and federal tax return The performance of these duties does not, of itself, show that Joan is able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Free state and federal tax return Sheltered employment. Free state and federal tax return   Certain work offered at qualified locations to physically or mentally impaired persons is considered sheltered employment. Free state and federal tax return These qualified locations are in sheltered workshops, hospitals and similar institutions, homebound programs, and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) sponsored homes. Free state and federal tax return   Compared to commercial employment, pay is lower for sheltered employment. Free state and federal tax return Therefore, one usually does not look for sheltered employment if he or she can get other employment. Free state and federal tax return The fact that one has accepted sheltered employment is not proof of the person's ability to engage in substantial gainful activity. Free state and federal tax return Physician's statement. Free state and federal tax return   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. Free state and federal tax return You can use the statement in the Instructions for Schedule R. Free state and federal tax return   You do not have to file this statement with your Form 1040 or Form 1040A, but you must keep it for your records. Free state and federal tax return Veterans. Free state and federal tax return    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. Free state and federal tax return VA Form 21-0172 must be signed by a person authorized by the VA to do so. Free state and federal tax return You can get this form from your local VA regional office. Free state and federal tax return Physician's statement obtained in earlier year. Free state and federal tax return   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. Free state and federal tax return For a detailed explanation of the conditions you must meet, see the instructions for Schedule R, Part II. Free state and federal tax return If you meet the required conditions, check the box on your Schedule R, Part II, line 2. Free state and federal tax return   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. Free state and federal tax return Disability income. Free state and federal tax return   If you are under age 65, you must also have taxable disability income to qualify for the credit. Free state and federal tax return Disability income must meet both of the following requirements. Free state and federal tax return It must be paid under your employer's accident or health plan or pension plan. Free state and federal tax return 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. Free state and federal tax return Payments that are not disability income. Free state and federal tax return    Any payment you receive from a plan that does not provide for disability retirement is not disability income. Free state and federal tax return 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. Free state and federal tax return    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. Free state and federal tax return Mandatory retirement age is the age set by your employer at which you would have had to retire, had you not become disabled. Free state and federal tax return Income Limits To determine if you can claim the credit, you must consider two income limits. Free state and federal tax return The first limit is the amount of your adjusted gross income (AGI). Free state and federal tax return The second limit is the amount of nontaxable social security and other nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income you received. Free state and federal tax return The limits are shown in Table 1. Free state and federal tax return If your AGI and your nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are less than the income limits, you may be able to claim the credit. Free state and federal tax return See Figuring the Credit Yourself , later. Free state and federal tax return Table 1. Free state and federal tax return Income Limits IF your filing status is THEN, even if you qualify (see Figure A), you CANNOT take the credit if   Your adjusted gross income (AGI)* is equal to or more than. Free state and federal tax return . Free state and federal tax return .

Free state and federal tax return If your AGI or your nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are equal to or more than the income limits, you cannot take the credit. Free state and federal tax return Credit Figured for You You can figure the credit yourself, or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will figure it for you. Free state and federal tax return See Figuring the Credit Yourself , next. Free state and federal tax return If you can take the credit and you want the IRS to figure the credit for you, attach Schedule R to your return. Free state and federal tax return Check the appropriate box in Part I of Schedule R and fill in Part II and lines 11, 13a, and 13b of Part III, if they apply to you. Free state and federal tax return If you file Form 1040A, enter “CFE” in the space to the left of Form 1040A, line 30. Free state and federal tax return If you file Form 1040, check box c on Form 1040, line 53, and enter “CFE” on the line next to that box. Free state and federal tax return Attach Schedule R to your return. Free state and federal tax return Table 2. Free state and federal tax return Initial Amounts IF your filing status is. Free state and federal tax return . Free state and federal tax return . Free state and federal tax return   THEN enter on line 10 of Schedule R. Free state and federal tax return .

Free state and federal tax return     2 Amount cannot be more than your combined taxable disability income. Free state and federal tax return     3 Amount is $5,000 plus the taxable disability income of the spouse under age 65, but not more than $7,500. Free state and federal tax return   Figuring the Credit Yourself If you figure the credit yourself, fill out the front of Schedule R. Free state and federal tax return Next, fill out Schedule R, Part III. Free state and federal tax return If you file Form 1040A, enter the amount from Schedule R, line 22 on line 30. Free state and federal tax return 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. Free state and federal tax return There are five steps in Part III to determine the amount of your credit. Free state and federal tax return Determine your initial amount (lines 10–12). Free state and federal tax return Determine the total of any nontaxable social security and certain other nontaxable pensions, annuities, and disability benefits you received (lines 13a, 13b, and 13c). Free state and federal tax return Determine your excess adjusted gross income (lines 14–17). Free state and federal tax return Determine the total of steps 2 and 3 (line 18). Free state and federal tax return Determine your credit (lines 19–22). Free state and federal tax return These steps are discussed in more detail next. Free state and federal tax return Step 1. Free state and federal tax return Determine Initial Amount To figure the credit, you must first determine your initial amount using lines 10 through 12. Free state and federal tax return See Table 2. Free state and federal tax return Your initial amount is on line 12. Free state and federal tax return Initial amounts for persons under age 65. Free state and federal tax return   If you are a qualified individual under age 65, your initial amount cannot be more than your taxable disability income. Free state and federal tax return Special rules for joint returns. Free state and federal tax return   If you are a qualified individual under age 65, and your spouse is also a qualified individual, your initial amount is your taxable disability income plus $5,000. Free state and federal tax return   If you are a qualified individual, and both you and your spouse are under age 65, your initial amount cannot be more than your combined taxable disability income. Free state and federal tax return Step 2. Free state and federal tax return Total Certain Nontaxable Pensions and Benefits Step 2 is to figure the total amount of nontaxable social security and certain other nontaxable payments you received during the year. Free state and federal tax return You must reduce your initial amount by these payments. Free state and federal tax return Enter these nontaxable payments on lines 13a or 13b and total them on line 13c. Free state and federal tax return If you are married filing jointly, you must enter the combined amount of nontaxable payments both you and your spouse received. Free state and federal tax return Worksheets are provided in the instructions for Forms 1040 and 1040A to help you determine if any of your social security benefits (or equivalent railroad retirement benefits) are taxable. Free state and federal tax return Include the following nontaxable payments in the amounts you enter on lines 13a and 13b. Free state and federal tax return Nontaxable social security payments. Free state and federal tax return This is the nontaxable part of the benefits shown in box 5 of Form SSA-1099, Social Security Benefit Statement, before deducting any amounts withheld to pay premiums on supplementary Medicare insurance, and before any reduction because of benefits received under workers' compensation. Free state and federal tax return (Do not include a lump-sum death benefit payment you may receive as a surviving spouse, or a surviving child's insurance benefit payments you may receive as a guardian. Free state and federal tax return ) Nontaxable railroad retirement pension payments treated as social security. Free state and federal tax return This is the nontaxable part of the benefits shown in box 5 of Form RRB-1099, Payments by the Railroad Retirement Board. Free state and federal tax return Nontaxable pension or annuity payments or disability benefits that are paid under a law administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Free state and federal tax return (Do not include amounts received as a pension, annuity, or similar allowance for personal injuries or sickness resulting from active service in the armed forces of any country or in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration or the Public Health Service, or as a disability annuity under section 808 of the Foreign Service Act of 1980. Free state and federal tax return ) Pension or annuity payments or disability benefits that are excluded from income under any provision of federal law other than the Internal Revenue Code. Free state and federal tax return (Do not include amounts that are a return of your cost of a pension or annuity. Free state and federal tax return These amounts do not reduce your initial amount. Free state and federal tax return ) You should be sure to take into account all of the nontaxable amounts you receive. Free state and federal tax return These amounts are verified by the IRS through information supplied by other government agencies. Free state and federal tax return Step 3. Free state and federal tax return Determine Excess Adjusted Gross Income You also must reduce your initial amount by your excess adjusted gross income. Free state and federal tax return Figure your excess adjusted gross income on lines 14–17. Free state and federal tax return You figure your excess adjusted gross income as follows. Free state and federal tax return Subtract from your adjusted gross income (Form 1040A, line 22 or Form 1040, line 38) the amount shown for your filing status. Free state and federal tax return $7,500 if you are single, a head of household, or a qualifying widow(er) with dependent child, $10,000 if you are married filing jointly, or $5,000 if you are married filing separately and you and your spouse did not live in the same household at any time during the tax year. Free state and federal tax return Divide the result of (1) by 2. Free state and federal tax return Step 4. Free state and federal tax return Determine the Total of Steps 2 and 3 To determine if you can take the credit, you must add (on line 18) the amounts you figured in Step 2 (line 13c) and Step 3 (line 17). Free state and federal tax return Step 5. Free state and federal tax return Determine Your Credit Subtract the amount determined in Step 4 (line 18) from the amount determined in Step 1 (line 12), and multiply the result by 15% (. Free state and federal tax return 15). Free state and federal tax return In certain cases, the amount of your credit may be limited. Free state and federal tax return See Limit on credit , later. Free state and federal tax return Example. Free state and federal tax return You are 66 years old and your spouse is 64. Free state and federal tax return Your spouse is not disabled. Free state and federal tax return You file a joint return on Form 1040. Free state and federal tax return Your adjusted gross income is $14,630. Free state and federal tax return Together you received $3,200 from social security, which was nontaxable. Free state and federal tax return You figure the credit as follows: Example applying the 5 step process Amount (Line references (shown in parentheses) are to the Schedule R)      1. Free state and federal tax return Initial amount (line 12) $5,000 2. Free state and federal tax return Total nontaxable social security  and other nontaxable  pensions (line 13c) $3,200   3. Free state and federal tax return Excess adjusted gross income  ($14,630–$10,000) ÷ 2 (line 17) 2,315   4. Free state and federal tax return Add (2) and (3) (line 18) 5,515 5. Free state and federal tax return Subtract (4) from (1) (line 12 – line 18 = line 19) (Do not enter less than -0-) $ -0- You cannot take the credit because your nontaxable social security plus your excess adjusted gross income is more than your initial amount. Free state and federal tax return Limit on credit. Free state and federal tax return   The amount of credit you can claim is generally limited to the amount of your tax. Free state and federal tax return Use the Credit Limit Worksheet in the Instructions for Schedule R to determine if your credit is limited. Free state and federal tax return Examples The following examples illustrate the credit for the elderly or the disabled. Free state and federal tax return The initial amounts are taken from Table 2, earlier. Free state and federal tax return Example 1. Free state and federal tax return James Davis is 58 years old, single, and files Form 1040A. Free state and federal tax return In 2011 he retired on permanent and total disability, and he is still permanently and totally disabled. Free state and federal tax return He got the required physician's statement in 2011 and kept it with his tax records. Free state and federal tax return His physician signed on line B of the statement. Free state and federal tax return This year James checks the box in Schedule R, Part II. Free state and federal tax return He does not need to get another statement for 2013. Free state and federal tax return He received the following income for the year: Nontaxable social security $1,500 Interest (taxable) 100 Taxable disability pension 11,400       James' adjusted gross income is $11,500 ($11,400 + $100). Free state and federal tax return He figures the credit on Schedule R as follows: 1. Free state and federal tax return Initial amount   $5,000 2. Free state and federal tax return Taxable disability pension   11,400 3. Free state and federal tax return Smaller of line 1 or line 2   5,000 4.

Tax Information for Employees

1040 Central
1040 Central has been updated for the last few weeks of Filing Season 2014.

Tax Withholding
The federal income tax is a pay-as-you-go tax. There are two ways to pay as you go. If you are an employee, your employer probably withholds income tax from your pay. The amount withheld is paid to the IRS in your name. Estimated tax is used to pay not only income tax, but self-employment tax and alternative minimum tax as well.

IRS Withholding Calculator
This easy-to-use calculator can help you figure your Federal income tax withholding so your employer can withhold the correct amount from your pay. This is particularly helpful if you've had too much or too little withheld in the past, your situation has changed, or you are starting a new job.

EITC Home Page--It’s easier than ever to find out if you qualify for EITC
If you worked but earned less than $51,567 during 2013, you may qualify for EITC. The Earned Income Tax Credit, sometimes called EIC is a tax credit to help you keep more of what you earned. You must file a return and claim the credit to receive it. Find out more about EITC and links to helpful tools and resources.
