H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax return is required for your situation. H&r block online If a U. H&r block online S. H&r block online return is required, your next step is to see if you meet the filing requirements. H&r block online If you do meet the filing requirements, the information presented in this chapter will help you understand the special procedures involved. H&r block online This chapter discusses: Filing requirements, When to file your return, Where to send your return, How to adjust your deductions and credits if you are excluding income from American Samoa or Puerto Rico, How to make estimated tax payments and pay self-employment tax, and How to request assistance in resolving instances of double taxation. H&r block online Who Must File If you are not required to file a possession tax return that includes your worldwide income, you must generally file a U. H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax return if your gross income is at least the amount shown in Table 4-1, later, for your filing status and age. H&r block online If you were a bona fide resident of American Samoa or Puerto Rico and are able to exclude your possession income from your U. H&r block online S. H&r block online tax return, your filing requirement may be less than the amount in Table 4-1. H&r block online For details, see the information under Filing Requirement if Possession Income Is Excluded , later. H&r block online Some individuals (such as those who can be claimed as a dependent on another person's return or who owe certain taxes, such as self-employment tax) must file a tax return even though the gross income is less than the amount shown in Table 4-1 for their filing status and age. H&r block online For more information, see the Form 1040 instructions. H&r block online Filing Requirement if Possession Income Is Excluded If you were a bona fide resident of American Samoa or Puerto Rico and qualify to exclude possession income on your U. H&r block online S. H&r block online tax return, you must determine your adjusted filing requirement. H&r block online Generally, your filing requirement is based on the total of your (and your spouse's if filing a joint return) personal exemption(s) plus your standard deduction. H&r block online Personal exemption. H&r block online   When figuring your filing requirement, your personal exemption is allowed in full. H&r block online Do not reduce it for this purpose. H&r block online Do not include exemptions for your dependents. H&r block online Allowable standard deduction. H&r block online   Unless your filing status is married filing separately, the minimum income level at which you must file a return is based, in part, on the standard deduction for your filing status and age. H&r block online Because the standard deduction applies to all types of income, it must be divided between your excluded income and income from other sources. H&r block online Multiply the regular standard deduction for your filing status and age (this is zero if you are married filing a separate return; all others, see Form 1040 instructions) by the following fraction:      Gross income subject to U. H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax     Gross income from all sources (including excluded possession income)   Example. H&r block online Barbara Spruce, a U. H&r block online S. H&r block online citizen, is single, under 65, and a bona fide resident of American Samoa. H&r block online During 2013, she received $20,000 of income from American Samoa sources (qualifies for exclusion) and $8,000 of income from sources outside the possession (subject to U. H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax). H&r block online Her allowable standard deduction for 2013 is figured as follows:   $8,000 $28,000 × $6,100 (regular standard deduction) = $1,743   Adjusted filing requirement. H&r block online   Figure your adjusted filing requirement by adding the amount of your allowable standard deduction to the amount of your personal exemption. H&r block online You must file a U. H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax return if your gross income is at least the amount shown on line 3 of the following worksheet. H&r block online    1. H&r block online Enter the allowable standard deduction you figured earlier under Allowable standard deduction . H&r block online If your filing status is married filing separately, enter -0-   2. H&r block online Personal exemption. H&r block online If your filing status is married filing jointly, enter $7,800; if someone can claim you as a dependent, enter -0-; otherwise, enter $3,900   3. H&r block online Add lines 1 and 2. H&r block online You must file a U. H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax return if your gross income from sources outside the relevant possession is at least this amount   Table 4-1.

H&r block online single under 65 $10,000 65 or older $11,500 married filing jointly*** under 65 (both spouses) $20,000 65 or older (one spouse) $21,200 65 or older (both spouses) $22,400 married filing separately any age $3,900 head of household under 65 $12,850 65 or older $14,350 qualifying widow(er)  with dependent child under 65 $16,100 65 or older $17,300 * If you were born on January 1, 1949, you are considered to be age 65 at the end of 2013. H&r block online ** Gross income means all income you received in the form of money, goods, property, and services that is not exempt from tax, including any income from sources outside the United States (even if you can exclude part or all of it). H&r block online Do not include social security benefits unless (a) you are married filing a separate return and you lived with your spouse at any time during 2013, or (b) one-half of your social security benefits plus your other gross income is more than $25,000 ($32,000 if married filing jointly). H&r block online If (a) or (b) applies, see the instructions for Form 1040 or Publication 915, Social Security and Equivalent Railroad Retirement Benefits, to figure the taxable part of social security benefits you must include in gross income. H&r block online *** If you did not live with your spouse at the end of 2013 (or on the date your spouse died) and your gross income was at least $3,900 you must file a return regardless of your age. H&r block online Example 1. H&r block online James and Joan Thompson, one over 65, are U. H&r block online S. H&r block online citizens and bona fide residents of Puerto Rico during the entire tax year. H&r block online They file a joint income tax return. H&r block online During 2013, they received $35,000 of income from Puerto Rico sources (qualifies for exclusion) and $6,000 of income from sources outside Puerto Rico (subject to U. H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax). H&r block online Their allowable standard deduction for 2013 is figured as follows:   $6,000 $41,000 × $13,400 ( standard deduction for 65 or older (one spouse) ) = $1,961   The Thompsons do not have to file a U. H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax return because their gross income subject to U. H&r block online S. H&r block online tax ($6,000) is less than their allowable standard deduction plus their personal exemptions ($1,961+ $7,800= $9,761). H&r block online Example 2. H&r block online Barbara Spruce (see Example under Allowable standard deduction, earlier), however, must file a U. H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax return because her gross income subject to U. H&r block online S. H&r block online tax ($8,000) is more than her allowable standard deduction plus her personal exemption ($1,743 + $3,900 = $5,643). H&r block online If you must file a U. H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax return, you may be able to file a paperless return using IRS e-file. H&r block online See your form instructions or visit our website at IRS. H&r block online gov.

H&r block online income tax return is April 15 following the end of your tax year. H&r block online If you use a fiscal year (a year ending on the last day of a month other than December), the due date is the 15th day of the 4th month after the end of your fiscal year. H&r block online If any due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, your tax return is due on the next business day. H&r block online For your 2013 tax return, the due date is April 15, 2014. H&r block online If you mail your federal tax return, it is considered timely if it bears an official postmark dated on or before the due date, including any extensions.

H&r block online See your form instructions for a list of designated private delivery services. H&r block online Extension of Time To File You can get an extension of time to file your U. H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax return. H&r block online Special rules apply for those living outside the United States. H&r block online Automatic 6-Month Extension If you cannot file your 2013 return by the due date, you can get an automatic 6-month extension of time to file. H&r block online Example. H&r block online If your return must be filed by April 15, 2014, you will have until October 15, 2014, to file. H&r block online Although you are not required to make a payment of the tax you estimate as due, Form 4868 does not extend the time to pay taxes.

H&r block online (See the situations listed under (2), earlier. H&r block online ) Extension beyond 2 months.

H&r block online Special Rules for Completing Your U. H&r block online S. H&r block online Tax Return If you are not excluding possession income from your U. H&r block online S. H&r block online tax return, follow the instructions for the specific forms you file. H&r block online However, you may not qualify to claim the earned income credit (EIC). H&r block online Earned income credit. H&r block online   Even if you maintain a household in one of the possessions discussed in this publication that is your main home and the home of your qualifying child, you cannot claim the earned income credit on your U. H&r block online S. H&r block online tax return. H&r block online This credit is available only if you maintain the household in the United States or you are serving on extended active duty in the U. H&r block online S. H&r block online Armed Forces. H&r block online U. H&r block online S. H&r block online Armed Forces. H&r block online   U. H&r block online S. H&r block online military personnel stationed outside the United States on extended active duty are considered to live in the United States during that duty period for purposes of the EIC. H&r block online Extended active duty means you are called or ordered to duty for an indefinite period or for a period of more than 90 days. H&r block online Once you begin serving your extended active duty, you are still considered to have been on extended active duty even if you do not serve more than 90 days. H&r block online Income from American Samoa or Puerto Rico excluded. H&r block online   You will not be allowed to take deductions and credits that apply to the excluded income. H&r block online The additional information you need follows. H&r block online Deductions if Possession Income Is Excluded Deductions that specifically apply to your excluded possession income, such as employee business expenses, are not allowable on your U. H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax return. H&r block online Deductions that do not specifically apply to any particular type of income must be divided between your excluded income from sources in the relevant possession and income from all other sources to find the part that you can deduct on your U. H&r block online S. H&r block online tax return. H&r block online Examples of such deductions are alimony payments, the standard deduction, and certain itemized deductions (such as medical expenses, charitable contributions, real estate taxes, and mortgage interest on your home). H&r block online Figuring the deduction. H&r block online   To find the part of a deduction that is allowable, multiply the deduction by the following fraction. H&r block online   Gross income subject to U. H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax     Gross income from all sources (including excluded possession income)   Adjustments to Income Your adjusted gross income equals your gross income minus certain deductions (adjustments). H&r block online Moving expense deduction. H&r block online   Generally, expenses of a move to a possession are directly attributable to wages, salaries, and other earned income from that possession. H&r block online Likewise, the expenses of a move back to the United States are generally attributable to U. H&r block online S. H&r block online earned income. H&r block online   If you are claiming expenses for a move to a relevant possession, how and where you will deduct the expenses depends on your status as a bona fide resident and if any of your possession income is excluded on your U. H&r block online S. H&r block online tax return. H&r block online For more information, see Moving expense deduction in chapter 3 under the name of the relevant possession. H&r block online   If you are claiming expenses for a move from a U. H&r block online S. H&r block online possession to the United States, use Form 3903 to figure your deductible expenses and enter the amount on Form 1040, line 26. H&r block online For purposes of deducting moving expenses, the possessions are considered part of the United States. H&r block online See Publication 521, Moving Expenses, for information about what expenses are deductible. H&r block online Self-employment tax deduction. H&r block online   Generally, if you are reporting self-employment income on your U. H&r block online S. H&r block online return, you can include the deductible part of your self-employment tax on Form 1040, line 27. H&r block online This is an income tax deduction only; it is not a deduction in figuring net earnings from self-employment (for self-employment tax). H&r block online   However, if you are a bona fide resident of American Samoa or Puerto Rico and you exclude all of your self-employment income from gross income, you cannot take the deduction on Form 1040, line 27, because the deduction is related to excluded income. H&r block online   If only part of your self-employment income is excluded, the part of the deduction that is based on the nonexcluded income is allowed. H&r block online This would happen if, for instance, you have two businesses and only the income from one of them is excludable. H&r block online   For purposes of the deduction only, figure the self-employment tax on the nonexcluded income by multiplying your total self-employment tax (from Schedule SE (Form 1040)), Self-Employment Tax) by the following fraction. H&r block online   Self-employment income subject to U. H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax     Total self-employment income (including excluded possession income)   The result is your self-employment tax on nonexcluded income. H&r block online Include the deductible part of this amount on Form 1040, line 27. H&r block online Individual retirement arrangement (IRA) deduction. H&r block online   Do not take excluded income into account when figuring your deductible IRA contribution. H&r block online Standard Deduction The standard deduction is composed of the regular standard deduction amount and the additional standard deduction for taxpayers who are blind or age 65 or over. H&r block online To find the amount you can claim on Form 1040, line 40, first figure your full standard deduction according to the Instructions for Form 1040. H&r block online Then multiply your full standard deduction by the following fraction. H&r block online   Gross income subject to U. H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax     Gross income from all sources (including excluded possession income)   In the space above line 40, enter “Standard deduction modified due to income excluded under section 931 (if American Samoa) or section 933 (if Puerto Rico). H&r block online ” This calculation may not be the same as the one you used to determine if you need to file a U. H&r block online S. H&r block online tax return. H&r block online Itemized Deductions Most itemized deductions do not apply to a particular type of income. H&r block online However, itemized deductions can be divided into three categories. H&r block online Those that apply specifically to excluded income, such as employee business expenses, are not deductible. H&r block online Those that apply specifically to income subject to U. H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax, which might also be employee business expenses, are fully allowable under the Instructions for Schedule A (Form 1040), Itemized Deductions. H&r block online Those that do not apply to specific income must be allocated between your gross income subject to U. H&r block online S. H&r block online income tax and your total gross income from all sources. H&r block online The example given later shows how to figure the deductible part of each type of expense that is not related to specific income. H&r block online Example. H&r block online In 2013, you and your spouse are both under 65 and U. H&r block online S. H&r block online citizens who are bona fide residents of Puerto Rico during the entire tax year. H&r block online You file a joint income tax return. H&r block online During 2013, you earned $20,000 from Puerto Rican sources (excluded from U. H&r block online S. H&r block online gross income) and your spouse earned $60,000 from the U. H&r block online S. H&r block online Government. H&r block online You have $16,000 of itemized deductions that do not apply to any specific type of income. H&r block online These are medical expenses of $4,000, real estate taxes of $5,000, home mortgage interest of $6,000, and charitable contributions of $1,000 (cash contributions). H&r block online You determine the amount of each deduction that you can claim on your Schedule A (Form 1040), Itemized Deductions, by multiplying the deduction by the fraction shown under Figuring the deduction , earlier under Deductions if Possession Income is Excluded. H&r block online   Medical Expenses   $60,000$80,000 × $4,000 = $3,000  (enter on line 1  of Schedule A)     Real Estate Taxes   $60,000$80,000 × $5,000 = $3,750  (enter on line 6  of Schedule A)     Home Mortgage Interest   $60,000$80,000 × $6,000 = $4,500  (enter on line 10 or 11 of  Schedule A)     Charitable Contributions (cash contributions)   $60,000$80,000 × $1,000 = $750  (enter on line 16 of Schedule A)   Enter on Schedule A (Form 1040) only the allowable portion of each deduction. H&r block online Overall limitation on itemized deductions. H&r block online   If your adjusted gross income (discussed earlier) is over $300,000 if married filing jointly or qualifying widow(er); $275,000 if head of household; $250,000 if single; or $150,000 if married filing separately; see the Itemized Deductions Worksheet in the Instructions for Schedule A (Form 1040), to figure your itemized deductions. H&r block online Personal Exemptions Personal exemptions are allowed in full even if excluding possession income. H&r block online However, depending upon your adjusted gross income and filing status, the amount you can deduct may be reduced. H&r block online See the Deduction for Exemptions Worksheet—Line 42 in the instructions for Form 1040. H&r block online Foreign Tax Credit if Possession Income Is Excluded If you must report American Samoa or Puerto Rico source income on your U. H&r block online S. H&r block online tax return, you can claim a foreign tax credit for income taxes paid to the possession on that income. H&r block online However, you cannot claim a foreign tax credit for taxes paid on possession income that is excluded on your U. H&r block online S. H&r block online tax return. H&r block online The foreign tax credit is generally figured on Form 1116. H&r block online If you have income, such as U. H&r block online S. H&r block online Government wages, that is not excludable, and you also have possession source income that is excludable, you must figure the credit by reducing your foreign taxes paid or accrued by the taxes based on the excluded income. H&r block online You make this reduction for each separate income category. H&r block online To find the amount of this reduction, use the following formula for each income category. H&r block online Excluded income from possession sources less deductible expenses based on that income x Tax paid or accrued to the possession = Reduction in foreign taxes Total income subject to possession tax less deductible expenses based on that income Enter the amount of the reduction on Form 1116, line 12. H&r block online For more information on the foreign tax credit, see Publication 514. H&r block online Example. H&r block online Jason and Lynn Reddy are U. H&r block online S. H&r block online citizens who were bona fide residents of Puerto Rico during all of 2013. H&r block online They file a joint tax return.
