How to complete 1040x For more information, see Internal Revenue Code sections 861(a)(9) and 862(a)(9). How to complete 1040x Personal Services All wages and any other compensation for services performed in the United States are considered to be from sources in the United States. How to complete 1040x The only exceptions to this rule are discussed in chapter 3 under Employees of foreign persons, organizations, or offices, and under Crew members. How to complete 1040x If you are an employee and receive compensation for labor or personal services performed both inside and outside the United States, special rules apply in determining the source of the compensation. How to complete 1040x Compensation (other than certain fringe benefits) is sourced on a time basis. How to complete 1040x Certain fringe benefits (such as housing and education) are sourced on a geographical basis. How to complete 1040x Or, you may be permitted to use an alternative basis to determine the source of compensation. How to complete 1040x See Alternative Basis , later. How to complete 1040x Multi-level marketing. How to complete 1040x   Certain companies sell products through a multi-level marketing arrangement, such that an upper-tier distributor, who has sponsored a lower-tier distributor, is entitled to a payment from the company based on certain activities of that lower-tier distributor. How to complete 1040x Generally, depending on the facts, payments from such multi-level marketing companies to independent (non-employee) distributors (upper-tier distributors) that are based on the sales or purchases of persons whom they have sponsored (lower-tier distributors) constitute income for the performance of personal services in recruiting, training, and supporting the lower-tier distributors. How to complete 1040x The source of such income is generally based on where the services of the upper-tier distributor are performed, and may, depending on the facts, be considered multi-year compensation, with the source of income determined over the period to which such compensation is attributable. How to complete 1040x Self-employed individuals. How to complete 1040x   If you are self-employed, you determine the source of compensation 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. How to complete 1040x In many cases, the facts and circumstances will call for an apportionment on a time basis as explained next. How to complete 1040x Time Basis Use a time basis to figure your U. How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x source compensation (other than the fringe benefits discussed later). How to complete 1040x 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 United States 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. How to complete 1040x The time period for which the compensation is made does not have to be a year. How to complete 1040x 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. How to complete 1040x Example 1. How to complete 1040x Christina Brooks, a resident of the Netherlands, worked 240 days for a U. How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x company during the tax year. How to complete 1040x She received $80,000 in compensation. How to complete 1040x None of it was for fringe benefits. How to complete 1040x Christina performed services in the United States for 60 days and performed services in the Netherlands for 180 days. How to complete 1040x Using the time basis for determining the source of compensation, $20,000 ($80,000 × 60/240) is her U. How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x source income. How to complete 1040x Example 2. How to complete 1040x Rob Waters, a resident of South Africa, is employed by a corporation. How to complete 1040x His annual salary is $100,000. How to complete 1040x None of it is for fringe benefits. How to complete 1040x During the first quarter of the year he worked entirely within the United States. How to complete 1040x On April 1, Rob was transferred to Singapore for the remainder of the year. How to complete 1040x Rob is able to establish that the first quarter of the year and the last 3 quarters of the year are two separate, distinct, and continuous periods of time. How to complete 1040x Accordingly, $25,000 of Rob's annual salary is attributable to the first quarter of the year (. How to complete 1040x 25 × $100,000). How to complete 1040x All of it is U. How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x source income because he worked entirely within the United States during that quarter. How to complete 1040x The remaining $75,000 is attributable to the last three quarters of the year. How to complete 1040x During those quarters, he worked 150 days in Singapore and 30 days in the United States. How to complete 1040x His periodic performance of services in the United States did not result in distinct, separate, and continuous periods of time. How to complete 1040x Of this $75,000, $12,500 ($75,000 × 30/180) is U. How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x source income. How to complete 1040x Multi-year compensation. How to complete 1040x   The source of multi-year compensation is generally determined on a time basis over the period to which the compensation is attributable. How to complete 1040x Multi-year compensation is compensation that is included in your income in one tax year but that is attributable to a period that includes two or more tax years. How to complete 1040x   You determine the period to which the compensation is attributable based on the facts and circumstances of your case. How to complete 1040x For example, an amount of compensation that specifically relates to a period of time that includes several calendar years is attributable to the entire multi-year period. How to complete 1040x   The amount of compensation treated as from U. How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x sources is figured by multiplying the total multi-year compensation by a fraction. How to complete 1040x The numerator of the fraction is the number of days (or unit of time less than a day, if appropriate) that you performed labor or personal services in the United States in connection with the project. How to complete 1040x The denominator of the fraction is the total number of days (or unit of time less than a day, if appropriate) that you performed labor or personal services in connection with the project. How to complete 1040x Geographical Basis Compensation you receive as an employee in the form of the following fringe benefits is sourced on a geographical basis. How to complete 1040x Housing. How to complete 1040x Education. How to complete 1040x Local transportation. How to complete 1040x Tax reimbursement. How to complete 1040x Hazardous or hardship duty pay as defined in Regulations section 1. How to complete 1040x 861-4(b)(2)(ii)(D)(5). How to complete 1040x Moving expense reimbursement. How to complete 1040x The amount of fringe benefits must be reasonable and you must substantiate them by adequate records or by sufficient evidence. How to complete 1040x Principal place of work. How to complete 1040x   The above fringe benefits, except for tax reimbursement and hazardous or hardship duty pay, are sourced based on your principal place of work. How to complete 1040x Your principal place of work is usually the place where you spend most of your working time. How to complete 1040x This could be your office, plant, store, shop, or other location. How to complete 1040x If there is no one place where you spend most of your working time, your main job location is the place where your work is centered, such as where you report for work or are otherwise required to “base” your work. How to complete 1040x   If you have more than one job at any time, your main job location depends on the facts in each case. How to complete 1040x The more important factors to be considered are: The total time you spend at each place, The amount of work you do at each place, and How much money you earn at each place. How to complete 1040x Housing. How to complete 1040x   The source of a housing fringe benefit is determined based on the location of your principal place of work. How to complete 1040x A housing fringe benefit includes payments to you or on your behalf (and your family's if your family resides with you) only for the following. How to complete 1040x Rent. How to complete 1040x Utilities (except telephone charges). How to complete 1040x Real and personal property insurance. How to complete 1040x Occupancy taxes not deductible under section 164 or 216(a). How to complete 1040x Nonrefundable fees for securing a leasehold. How to complete 1040x Rental of furniture and accessories. How to complete 1040x Household repairs. How to complete 1040x Residential parking. How to complete 1040x Fair rental value of housing provided in kind by your employer. How to complete 1040x   A housing fringe benefit does not include: Deductible interest and taxes (including deductible interest and taxes of a tenant-stockholder in a cooperative housing corporation), The cost of buying property, including principal payments on a mortgage, The cost of domestic labor (maids, gardeners, etc. How to complete 1040x ), Pay television subscriptions, Improvements and other expenses that increase the value or appreciably prolong the life of property, Purchased furniture or accessories, Depreciation or amortization of property or improvements, The value of meals or lodging that you exclude from gross income, or The value of meals or lodging that you deduct as moving expenses. How to complete 1040x Education. How to complete 1040x   The source of an education fringe benefit for the education expenses of your dependents is determined based on the location of your principal place of work. How to complete 1040x An education fringe benefit includes payments only for the following expenses for education at an elementary or secondary school. How to complete 1040x Tuition, fees, academic tutoring, special needs services for a special needs student, books, supplies, and other equipment. How to complete 1040x Room and board and uniforms that are required or provided by the school in connection with enrollment or attendance. How to complete 1040x Local transportation. How to complete 1040x   The source of a local transportation fringe benefit is determined based on the location of your principal place of work. How to complete 1040x Your local transportation fringe benefit is the amount that you receive as compensation for local transportation for you or your spouse or dependents at the location of your principal place of work. How to complete 1040x The amount treated as a local transportation fringe benefit is limited to actual expenses incurred for local transportation and the fair rental value of any employer-provided vehicle used predominantly by you, your spouse, or your dependents for local transportation. How to complete 1040x Actual expenses do not include the cost (including interest) of any vehicle purchased by you or on your behalf. How to complete 1040x Tax reimbursement. How to complete 1040x   The source of a tax reimbursement fringe benefit is determined based on the location of the jurisdiction that imposed the tax for which you are reimbursed. How to complete 1040x Moving expense reimbursement. How to complete 1040x   The source of a moving expense reimbursement is generally based on the location of your new principal place of work. How to complete 1040x However, the source is determined based on the location of your former principal place of work if you provide sufficient evidence that such determination of source is more appropriate under the facts and circumstances of your case. How to complete 1040x Sufficient evidence generally requires an agreement between you and your employer, or a written statement of company policy, which is reduced to writing before the move and which is entered into or established to induce you or other employees to move to another country. How to complete 1040x The written statement or agreement must state that your employer will reimburse you for moving expenses that you incur to return to your former principal place of work regardless of whether you continue to work for your employer after returning to that location. How to complete 1040x It may contain certain conditions upon which the right to reimbursement is determined as long as those conditions set forth standards that are definitely ascertainable and can only be fulfilled prior to, or through completion of, your return move to your former principal place of work. How to complete 1040x Alternative Basis If you are an employee, 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 compensation than the time or geographical basis. How to complete 1040x 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 compensation. How to complete 1040x Also, if your total compensation from all sources is $250,000 or more, check “Yes” to both questions on line K on page 5 of Form 1040NR, and attach a written statement to your tax return that sets forth all of the following. How to complete 1040x Your name and social security number (written across the top of the statement). How to complete 1040x The specific compensation income, or the specific fringe benefit, for which you are using the alternative basis. How to complete 1040x For each item in (2), the alternative basis of allocation of source used. How to complete 1040x For each item in (2), a computation showing how the alternative allocation was computed. How to complete 1040x A comparison of the dollar amount of the U. How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x compensation and foreign compensation sourced under both the alternative basis and the time or geographical basis discussed earlier. How to complete 1040x Transportation Income Transportation income is income from the use of a vessel or aircraft or for the performance of services directly related to the use of any vessel or aircraft. How to complete 1040x This is true whether the vessel or aircraft is owned, hired, or leased. How to complete 1040x The term “vessel or aircraft” includes any container used in connection with a vessel or aircraft. How to complete 1040x All income from transportation that begins and ends in the United States is treated as derived from sources in the United States. How to complete 1040x If the transportation begins or ends in the United States, 50% of the transportation income is treated as derived from sources in the United States. How to complete 1040x For transportation income from personal services, 50% of the income is U. How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x source income if the transportation is between the United States and a U. How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x possession. How to complete 1040x For nonresident aliens, this only applies to income derived from, or in connection with, an aircraft. How to complete 1040x For information on how U. How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x source transportation income is taxed, see chapter 4. How to complete 1040x Scholarships, Grants, Prizes, and Awards Generally, the source of scholarships, fellowship grants, grants, prizes, and awards is the residence of the payer regardless of who actually disburses the funds. How to complete 1040x However, see Activities to be performed outside the United States , later. How to complete 1040x For example, payments for research or study in the United States made by the United States, a noncorporate U. How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x resident, or a domestic corporation, are from U. How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x sources. How to complete 1040x Similar payments from a foreign government or foreign corporation are foreign source payments even though the funds may be disbursed through a U. How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x agent. How to complete 1040x Payments made by an entity designated as a public international organization under the International Organizations Immunities Act are from foreign sources.

How to complete 1040x See Personal Services, earlier, for the source rules that apply.

How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x sources. How to complete 1040x That part is the amount attributable to earnings of the pension plan and the employer contributions made for services performed in the United States. How to complete 1040x This applies whether the distribution is made under a qualified or nonqualified stock bonus, pension, profit-sharing, or annuity plan (whether or not funded). How to complete 1040x If you performed services as an employee of the United States, you may receive a distribution from the U. How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x Government under a plan, such as the Civil Service Retirement System, that is treated as a qualified pension plan. How to complete 1040x Your U. How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x source income is the otherwise taxable amount of the distribution that is attributable to your total U. How to complete 1040x S. How to complete 1040x Government basic pay other than tax-exempt pay for services performed outside the United States. How to complete 1040x Rents or Royalties Your U. How to complete 1040x S.
