H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes or foreign source income. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes Virgin Islands (USVI). H&r block free military taxes Generally, the same rules that apply for determining U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes source income also apply for determining possession source income. H&r block free military taxes However, there are some important exceptions to these rules. H&r block free military taxes Both the general rules and the exceptions are discussed in this chapter. H&r block free military taxes U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes income rule. H&r block free military taxes   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.

H&r block free military taxes For more information, see Regulations section 1. H&r block free military taxes 863-1(b). H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes Generally, the same rules shown in Table 2-1 are used to determine if you have possession source income. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes It also includes income earned by sole proprietors and general partners from providing personal services in the course of their trade or business. H&r block free military taxes Services performed wholly within a relevant possession. H&r block free military taxes   Generally, all pay you receive for services performed in a relevant possession is considered to be from sources within that possession. H&r block free military taxes However, there is an exception for income earned as a member of the U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes Armed Forces or a civilian spouse. H&r block free military taxes U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes Armed Forces. H&r block free military taxes   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. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes Civilian spouse of active duty member of the U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes Armed Forces. H&r block free military taxes   If you are a bona fide resident of a U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes possessions is considered to be the United States and, specifically, your state of residence or the District of Columbia. H&r block free military taxes Services performed partly inside and partly outside a relevant possession. H&r block free military taxes   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. H&r block free military taxes Compensation (other than certain fringe benefits) is sourced on a time basis. H&r block free military taxes Certain fringe benefits (such as housing and education) are sourced on a geographical basis. H&r block free military taxes   Or, you may be permitted to use an alternative basis to determine the source of compensation. H&r block free military taxes See Alternative basis , later. H&r block free military taxes   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. H&r block free military taxes In many cases, the facts and circumstances will call for an apportionment on a time basis as explained next. H&r block free military taxes Time basis. H&r block free military taxes   Use a time basis to figure your compensation for labor or personal services from the relevant possession (other than the fringe benefits discussed later). H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes The time period for which the income is made does not have to be a year. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes Example. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes Your Puerto Rico source income is $60,000, figured as follows. H&r block free military taxes       180 days 240 days × $80,000 = $60,000                 Multi-year compensation. H&r block free military taxes   The source of multi-year compensation is generally determined on a time basis over the period to which the compensation is attributable. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes You determine the period to which the income is attributable based on the facts and circumstances of your case. H&r block free military taxes For more information on multi-year compensation, see Treasury Decision (T. H&r block free military taxes D. H&r block free military taxes ) 9212 and Regulations section 1. H&r block free military taxes 861-4, 2005-35 I. H&r block free military taxes R. H&r block free military taxes B.

H&r block free military taxes Certain fringe benefits sourced on a geographical basis. H&r block free military taxes   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. H&r block free military taxes Housing. H&r block free military taxes Education. H&r block free military taxes Local transportation. H&r block free military taxes Tax reimbursement. H&r block free military taxes Hazardous or hardship duty pay. H&r block free military taxes Moving expense reimbursement. H&r block free military taxes For information on determining the source of the fringe benefits listed above, see Regulations section 1. H&r block free military taxes 861-4. H&r block free military taxes Alternative basis. H&r block free military taxes   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. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes De minimis exception. H&r block free military taxes   There is an exception to the rule for determining the source of income earned in a possession. H&r block free military taxes Generally, you will not have income from a possession if during a tax year you: Are a U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes This exception began with income earned during your 2008 tax year. H&r block free military taxes Pensions. H&r block free military taxes   Generally, pension income has two components: contributions to the pension plan and the earnings accrued from investing those contributions. H&r block free military taxes The contribution portion is sourced according to where services were performed that earned the pension. H&r block free military taxes The investment earnings portion is sourced according to the location of the pension trust. H&r block free military taxes Example. H&r block free military taxes You are a U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes citizen who worked in Puerto Rico for a U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes company. H&r block free military taxes All services were performed in Puerto Rico. H&r block free military taxes Upon retirement you remained in Puerto Rico and began receiving your pension from the U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes pension trust of your employer. H&r block free military taxes Distributions from the U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes pension trust must be allocated between (1) contributions, which are Puerto Rico source income, and (2) investment earnings, which are U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes source income. H&r block free military taxes Investment Income This category includes such income as interest, dividends, rents, and royalties. H&r block free military taxes Interest income. H&r block free military taxes   The source of interest income is generally determined by the residence of the payer. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes   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. H&r block free military taxes See Regulations section 1. H&r block free military taxes 937-2(i) for more information. H&r block free military taxes Dividends. H&r block free military taxes   Generally, dividends paid by a corporation created or organized in a relevant possession will be considered income from sources within that possession. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes For more information, see Regulations section 1. H&r block free military taxes 937-2(g). H&r block free military taxes Rental income. H&r block free military taxes   Rents from property located in a relevant possession are treated as income from sources within that possession. H&r block free military taxes Royalties. H&r block free military taxes   Royalties from natural resources located in a relevant possession are considered income from sources within that possession. H&r block free military taxes   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. H&r block free military taxes Sales or Other Dispositions of Property The source rules for sales or other dispositions of property are varied. H&r block free military taxes The most common situations are discussed below. H&r block free military taxes Real property. H&r block free military taxes   Real property includes land and buildings, and generally anything built on, growing on, or attached to land. H&r block free military taxes The location of the property generally determines the source of income from the sale. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes If, however, the home you sold was located in the United States, the gain is U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes source income. H&r block free military taxes Personal property. H&r block free military taxes   The term “personal property” refers to property (such as machinery, equipment, or furniture) that is not real property. H&r block free military taxes Generally, gain (or loss) from the sale or other disposition is sourced according to the seller's tax home. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes   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. H&r block free military taxes The rules applying to sales of inventory are discussed below. H&r block free military taxes For information on sales of the other types of property mentioned, see Internal Revenue Code section 865. H&r block free military taxes Inventory. H&r block free military taxes   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. H&r block free military taxes The source of income from the sale of inventory depends on whether the inventory was purchased or produced. H&r block free military taxes Purchased. H&r block free military taxes   Income from the sale of inventory that you purchased is sourced where you sell the property. H&r block free military taxes Generally, this is where title to the property passes to the buyer. H&r block free military taxes Produced. H&r block free military taxes   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. H&r block free military taxes For information on making the allocation, see Regulations section 1. H&r block free military taxes 863-3(f). H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes citizen or resident alien prior to becoming a bona fide resident of a possession. H&r block free military taxes You are subject to these special rules if you meet both of the following conditions. H&r block free military taxes For the tax year for which the source of the gain must be determined, you are a bona fide resident of the relevant possession. H&r block free military taxes 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). H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes Accordingly, bona fide residents of American Samoa and Puerto Rico, for example, may not exclude the gain on their U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes tax return. H&r block free military taxes (See chapter 3 for additional filing information. H&r block free military taxes ) 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. H&r block free military taxes These rules apply to dispositions after April 11, 2005. H&r block free military taxes For details, see Regulations section 1. H&r block free military taxes 937-2(f)(1) and Examples 1 and 2 of section 1. H&r block free military taxes 937-2(k). H&r block free military taxes Example 1. H&r block free military taxes In 2007, Cheryl Jones, a U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes citizen, lived in the United States and paid $1,000 for 100 shares of stock in the Rose Corporation, a U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes corporation listed on the New York Stock Exchange. H&r block free military taxes On March 1, 2010, she moved to Puerto Rico and changed her tax home to Puerto Rico on the same date. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes On March 1, 2010, the closing value of Cheryl's stock in the Rose Corporation was $2,000. H&r block free military taxes On January 5, 2013, while still a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico, Cheryl sold all her Rose Corporation stock for $7,000. H&r block free military taxes Under the earlier rules, none of Cheryl's $6,000 gain will be treated as income from sources within Puerto Rico. H&r block free military taxes The source rules discussed in the preceding paragraphs supplement, and may apply in conjunction with, an existing special rule. H&r block free military taxes This existing special rule applies if you are a U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes assets during the 10-year period beginning when you became a bona fide resident. H&r block free military taxes The gain is U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes source income that generally is subject to U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes tax if the property is either (1) located in the United States; (2) stock issued by a U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes corporation or a debt obligation of a U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes 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). H&r block free military taxes See chapter 3 for filing information. H&r block free military taxes Special election. H&r block free military taxes   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. H&r block free military taxes Make the election by reporting the gain attributable to the possession holding period on your income tax return for the year of disposition. H&r block free military taxes This election overrides both of the special rules discussed earlier. H&r block free military taxes   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. H&r block free military taxes Marketable securities. H&r block free military taxes   Marketable securities are those actively traded on an established financial market, such as stock in a publicly held corporation. H&r block free military taxes Under the special election, allocate the gain (or loss) by figuring the appreciation separately for your possession and U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes holding periods. H&r block free military taxes   Your possession holding period begins on the first day you do not have a tax home outside the relevant possession. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes This is your gain (or loss) that is treated as being from sources within the relevant possession. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes Example 2. H&r block free military taxes Assume the same facts as in Example 1, except that Cheryl makes the special election to allocate the gain between her U. H&r block free military taxes S. H&r block free military taxes and possession holding periods. H&r block free military taxes Cheryl's possession holding period began March 1, 2010, the date her tax home changed to Puerto Rico. H&r block free military taxes 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). H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes Other personal property. H&r block free military taxes   For personal property other than marketable securities, use a time-based allocation. H&r block free military taxes Figure the gain (or loss) attributable to the possession holding period by multiplying your total gain (or loss) by the following fraction. H&r block free military taxes      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. H&r block free military taxes Example 3. H&r block free military taxes In addition to the stock in Rose Corporation, Cheryl acquired a 5% interest in the Alder Partnership on January 1, 2009. H&r block free military taxes On March 1, 2010, when she established bona fide residency in Puerto Rico, her partnership interest was not considered a marketable security. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes She had owned the interest for a total of 1,720 days. H&r block free military taxes Cheryl's possession holding period (from March 1, 2010, through September 16, 2013) is 1,296 days. H&r block free military taxes The portion of her gain attributable to Puerto Rico is $75,349 ($100,000 x (1,296 Puerto Rico days ÷ 1,720 total days)). H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes These rules do not apply to amounts paid as salary or other compensation for services. H&r block free military taxes See Compensation for Labor or Personal Services, earlier in this chapter, for the source rules that apply. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes These circumstances are listed below. H&r block free military taxes You have an office or other fixed place of business in the relevant possession to which the income can be attributed. H&r block free military taxes That office or place of business is a material factor in producing the income. H&r block free military taxes The income is produced in the ordinary course of the trade or business carried on through that office or other fixed place of business. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes The three kinds of income from sources outside the relevant possession to which these rules apply are the following. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes Dividends or interest from the active conduct of a banking, financing, or similar business in the relevant possession. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes Example. H&r block free military taxes Marcy Jackson is a bona fide resident of American Samoa. H&r block free military taxes Her business, which she conducts from an office in American Samoa, is developing and selling specialized computer software. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes 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. H&r block free military taxes 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.
