Irs 1040ez form  For tax years beginning after December 31, 2012, a child whose tax is figured on Form 8615 may be subject to the Net Investment Income Tax (NIIT). Irs 1040ez form NIIT is a 3. Irs 1040ez form 8% tax on the lesser of the net investment income or the excess of the child's modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) over the threshold amount. Irs 1040ez form Use Form 8960, Net Investment Income Tax, to figure this tax. Irs 1040ez form For more information on NIIT, go to www. Irs 1040ez form irs. Irs 1040ez form gov and enter “Net Investment Income Tax” in the search box. Irs 1040ez form Introduction This chapter discusses the following two rules that may affect the tax on unearned income of certain children. Irs 1040ez form If the child's interest and dividend income (including capital gain distributions) total less than $10,000, the child's parent may be able to choose to include that income on the parent's return rather than file a return for the child. Irs 1040ez form (See Parent's Election To Report Child's Interest and Dividends , later. Irs 1040ez form ) If the child's interest, dividends, and other unearned income total more than $2,000, part of that income may be taxed at the parent's tax rate instead of the child's tax rate. Irs 1040ez form (See Tax for Certain Children Who Have Unearned Income , later. Irs 1040ez form ) For these rules, the term “child” includes a legally adopted child and a stepchild. Irs 1040ez form These rules apply whether or not the child is a dependent.

Irs 1040ez form The tax rate and other return information from that return are used to figure the child's tax as explained later under Tax for Certain Children Who Have Unearned Income . Irs 1040ez form Parents Who Do Not File a Joint Return For parents who do not file a joint return, the following discussions explain which parent's tax return must be used to figure the tax. Irs 1040ez form Only the parent whose tax return is used can make the election described under Parent's Election To Report Child's Interest and Dividends . Irs 1040ez form Parents are married. Irs 1040ez form   If the child's parents file separate returns, use the return of the parent with the greater taxable income. Irs 1040ez form Parents not living together. Irs 1040ez form   If the child's parents are married to each other but not living together, and the parent with whom the child lives (the custodial parent) is considered unmarried, use the return of the custodial parent. Irs 1040ez form If the custodial parent is not considered unmarried, use the return of the parent with the greater taxable income. Irs 1040ez form   For an explanation of when a married person living apart from his or her spouse is considered unmarried, see Head of Household in chapter 2. Irs 1040ez form Parents are divorced. Irs 1040ez form   If the child's parents are divorced or legally separated, and the parent who had custody of the child for the greater part of the year (the custodial parent) has not remarried, use the return of the custodial parent. Irs 1040ez form Custodial parent remarried. Irs 1040ez form   If the custodial parent has remarried, the stepparent (rather than the noncustodial parent) is treated as the child's other parent. Irs 1040ez form Therefore, if the custodial parent and the stepparent file a joint return, use that joint return. Irs 1040ez form Do not use the return of the noncustodial parent. Irs 1040ez form   If the custodial parent and the stepparent are married, but file separate returns, use the return of the one with the greater taxable income. Irs 1040ez form If the custodial parent and the stepparent are married but not living together, the earlier discussion under Parents not living together applies. Irs 1040ez form Parents never married. Irs 1040ez form   If a child's parents have never been married to each other, but lived together all year, use the return of the parent with the greater taxable income. Irs 1040ez form If the parents did not live together all year, the rules explained earlier under Parents are divorced apply. Irs 1040ez form Widowed parent remarried. Irs 1040ez form   If a widow or widower remarries, the new spouse is treated as the child's other parent. Irs 1040ez form The rules explained earlier under Custodial parent remarried apply. Irs 1040ez form Parent's Election To Report Child's Interest and Dividends You may be able to elect to include your child's interest and dividend income (including capital gain distributions) on your tax return. Irs 1040ez form If you do, your child will not have to file a return. Irs 1040ez form You can make this election only if all the following conditions are met. Irs 1040ez form Your child was under age 19 (or under age 24 if a full-time student) at the end of the year. Irs 1040ez form Your child had income only from interest and dividends (including capital gain distributions and Alaska Permanent Fund dividends). Irs 1040ez form The child's gross income was less than $10,000. Irs 1040ez form The child is required to file a return unless you make this election. Irs 1040ez form The child does not file a joint return for the year. Irs 1040ez form No estimated tax payment was made for the year, and no overpayment from the previous year (or from any amended return) was applied to this year under your child's name and social security number. Irs 1040ez form No federal income tax was taken out of your child's income under the backup withholding rules. Irs 1040ez form You are the parent whose return must be used when applying the special tax rules for children. Irs 1040ez form (See Which Parent's Return To Use , earlier. Irs 1040ez form ) These conditions are also shown in Figure 31-A. Irs 1040ez form Certain January 1 birthdays. Irs 1040ez form   A child born on January 1, 1995, is considered to be age 19 at the end of 2013. Irs 1040ez form You cannot make this election for such a child unless the child was a full-time student. Irs 1040ez form   A child born on January 1, 1990, is considered to be age 24 at the end of 2013. Irs 1040ez form You cannot make this election for such a child. Irs 1040ez form Full-time student. Irs 1040ez form   A full-time student is a child who during some part of each of any 5 calendar months of the year was enrolled as a full-time student at a school, or took a full-time on-farm training course given by a school or a state, county, or local government agency. Irs 1040ez form A school includes a technical, trade, or mechanical school. Irs 1040ez form It does not include an on-the-job training course, correspondence school, or school offering courses only through the Internet. Irs 1040ez form How to make the election. Irs 1040ez form   Make the election by attaching Form 8814 to your Form 1040. Irs 1040ez form (If you make this election, you cannot file Form 1040A or Form 1040EZ. Irs 1040ez form ) Attach a separate Form 8814 for each child for whom you make the election. Irs 1040ez form You can make the election for one or more children and not for others. Irs 1040ez form Effect of Making the Election The federal income tax on your child's income may be more if you make the Form 8814 election. Irs 1040ez form Rate may be higher. Irs 1040ez form   If your child received qualified dividends or capital gain distributions, you may pay up to $100 more tax if you make this election instead of filing a separate tax return for the child. Irs 1040ez form This is because the tax rate on the child's income between $1,000 and $2,000 is 10% if you make this election. Irs 1040ez form However, if you file a separate return for the child, the tax rate may be as low as 0% (zero percent) because of the preferential tax rates for qualified dividends and capital gain distributions. Irs 1040ez form Deductions you cannot take. Irs 1040ez form   By making the Form 8814 election, you cannot take any of the following deductions that the child would be entitled to on his or her return. Irs 1040ez form The additional standard deduction if the child is blind. Irs 1040ez form The deduction for a penalty on an early withdrawal of your child's savings. Irs 1040ez form Itemized deductions (such as your child's investment expenses or charitable contributions). Irs 1040ez form Reduced deductions or credits. Irs 1040ez form   If you use Form 8814, your increased adjusted gross income may reduce certain deductions or credits on your return including the following. Irs 1040ez form Deduction for contributions to a traditional individual retirement arrangement (IRA). Irs 1040ez form Deduction for student loan interest. Irs 1040ez form Itemized deductions for medical expenses, casualty and theft losses, and certain miscellaneous expenses. Irs 1040ez form Credit for child and dependent care expenses. Irs 1040ez form Child tax credit. Irs 1040ez form Education tax credits. Irs 1040ez form Earned income credit. Irs 1040ez form Penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. Irs 1040ez form   If you make this election for 2013 and did not have enough tax withheld or pay enough estimated tax to cover the tax you owe, you may be subject to a penalty. Irs 1040ez form If you plan to make this election for 2014, you may need to increase your federal income tax withholding or your estimated tax payments to avoid the penalty. Irs 1040ez form See chapter 4 for more information. Irs 1040ez form Figuring Child's Income Use Form 8814, Part I, to figure your child's interest and dividend income to report on your return. Irs 1040ez form Only the amount over $2,000 is added to your income. Irs 1040ez form The amount over $2,000 is shown on Form 8814, line 6. Irs 1040ez form Unless the child's income includes qualified dividends or capital gain distributions (discussed next), the same amount is shown on Form 8814, line 12. Irs 1040ez form Include the amount from Form 8814, line 12, on Form 1040, line 21. Irs 1040ez form Enter “Form 8814” on the dotted line next to line 21. Irs 1040ez form If you file more than one Form 8814, include the total amounts from line 12 of all your Forms 8814 on Form 1040, line 21. Irs 1040ez form Capital gain distributions and qualified dividends. Irs 1040ez form   If your child's dividend income included any capital gain distributions, see Capital gain distributions under Figuring Child's Income in Publication 929, Part 2. Irs 1040ez form If your child's dividend income included any qualified dividends, see Qualified dividends under Figuring Child's Income in Publication 929, Part 2. Irs 1040ez form Figuring Additional Tax Use Form 8814, Part II, to figure the tax on the $2,000 of your child's interest and dividends that you do not include in your income. Irs 1040ez form This tax is added to the tax figured on your income. Irs 1040ez form This additional tax is the smaller of: 10% × (your child's gross income − $1,000), or $100. Irs 1040ez form Include the amount from line 15 of all your Forms 8814 in the total on Form 1040, line 44. Irs 1040ez form Check box a on Form 1040, line 44. Irs 1040ez form Figure 31-A.

Irs 1040ez form Can You Include Your Child's Income On Your Tax Return? Tax for Certain Children Who Have Unearned Income If a child's interest, dividends, and other unearned income total more than $2,000, part of that income may be taxed at the parent's tax rate instead of the child's tax rate. Irs 1040ez form If the parent does not or cannot choose to include the child's income on the parent's return, use Form 8615 to figure the child's tax. Irs 1040ez form Attach the completed form to the child's Form 1040 or Form 1040A. Irs 1040ez form When Form 8615 must be filed. Irs 1040ez form   Form 8615 must be filed for a child if all of the following statements are true. Irs 1040ez form The child's investment income was more than $2,000. Irs 1040ez form The child is required to file a return for 2013. Irs 1040ez form The child either: Was under age 18 at the end of the year, Was age 18 at the end of the year and did not have earned income that was more than half of his or her support, or Was over age 18 and under age 24 at the end of the year, was a full-time student, and did not have earned income that was more than half of his or her support. Irs 1040ez form At least one of the child's parents was alive at the end of 2013. Irs 1040ez form The child does not file a joint return for 2013. Irs 1040ez form These conditions are also shown in  Figure 31-B. Irs 1040ez form Earned income. Irs 1040ez form   Earned income includes salaries, wages, tips, and other payments received for personal services performed. Irs 1040ez form It does not include unearned income as defined later in this chapter. Irs 1040ez form Support. Irs 1040ez form   Your child's support includes all amounts spent to provide the child with food, lodging, clothing, education, medical and dental care, recreation, transportation, and similar necessities. Irs 1040ez form To figure your child's support, count support provided by you, your child, and others. Irs 1040ez form However, a scholarship received by your child is not considered support if your child is a full-time student. Irs 1040ez form See chapter 3 for details about support. Irs 1040ez form Certain January 1 birthdays. Irs 1040ez form   Use the following chart to determine whether certain children with January 1 birthdays meet condition 3 under When Form 8615 must be filed. Irs 1040ez form Figure 31-B.

Irs 1040ez form Providing Parental Information (Form 8615, lines A–C) On Form 8615, lines A and B, enter the parent's name and social security number. Irs 1040ez form (If the parents filed a joint return, enter the name and social security number listed first on the joint return. Irs 1040ez form ) On line C, check the box for the parent's filing status. Irs 1040ez form See Which Parent's Return To Use at the beginning of this chapter for information on which parent's return information must be used on Form 8615. Irs 1040ez form Parent with different tax year. Irs 1040ez form   If the parent and the child do not have the same tax year, complete Form 8615 using the information on the parent's return for the tax year that ends in the child's tax year. Irs 1040ez form Parent's return information not known timely. Irs 1040ez form   If the information needed from the parent's return is not known by the time the child's return is due (usually April 15), you can file the return using estimates. Irs 1040ez form   You can use any reasonable estimate. Irs 1040ez form This includes using information from last year's return. Irs 1040ez form If you use an estimated amount on Form 8615, enter “Estimated” on the line next to the amount. Irs 1040ez form    When you get the correct information, file an amended return on Form 1040X, Amended U. Irs 1040ez form S. Irs 1040ez form Individual Income Tax Return. Irs 1040ez form   Instead of using estimates, you can get an automatic 6-month extension of time to file if, by the date your return is due, you file Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U. Irs 1040ez form S. Irs 1040ez form Individual Income Tax Return. Irs 1040ez form Extensions are discussed in chapter 1. Irs 1040ez form Step 1. Irs 1040ez form Figuring the Child's Net Unearned Income (Form 8615, Part I) The first step in figuring a child's tax using Form 8615 is to figure the child's net unearned income. Irs 1040ez form To do that, use Form 8615, Part I. Irs 1040ez form Line 1 (unearned income). Irs 1040ez form   If the child had no earned income, enter on this line the adjusted gross income shown on the child's return. Irs 1040ez form Adjusted gross income is shown on Form 1040, line 38, or Form 1040A, line 22. Irs 1040ez form Form 1040EZ cannot be used if Form 8615 must be filed. Irs 1040ez form   If the child had earned income, figure the amount to enter on Form 8615, line 1, by using the worksheet in the instructions for the form. Irs 1040ez form   However, if the child has: excluded any foreign earned income, deducted either a loss from self-employment, or deducted a net operating loss from another year, then use the Alternate Worksheet for Form 8615, Line 1, in Publication 929 to figure the amount to enter on Form 8615, line 1. Irs 1040ez form Unearned income defined. Irs 1040ez form   Unearned income is generally all income other than salaries, wages, and other amounts received as pay for work actually done. Irs 1040ez form It includes taxable interest, dividends (including capital gain distributions), capital gains, unemployment compensation, the taxable part of social security and pension payments, and certain distributions from trusts. Irs 1040ez form Unearned income includes amounts produced by assets the child obtained with earned income (such as interest on a savings account into which the child deposited wages). Irs 1040ez form Nontaxable income. Irs 1040ez form   For this purpose, unearned income includes only amounts the child must include in total income. Irs 1040ez form Nontaxable unearned income, such as tax-exempt interest and the nontaxable part of social security and pension payments, is not included. Irs 1040ez form Income from property received as a gift. Irs 1040ez form   A child's unearned income includes all income produced by property belonging to the child. Irs 1040ez form This is true even if the property was transferred to the child, regardless of when the property was transferred or purchased or who transferred it. Irs 1040ez form   A child's unearned income includes income produced by property given as a gift to the child. Irs 1040ez form This includes gifts to the child from grandparents or any other person and gifts made under the Uniform Gift to Minors Act. Irs 1040ez form Example. Irs 1040ez form Amanda Black, age 13, received the following income. Irs 1040ez form Dividends — $800 Wages — $2,100 Taxable interest — $1,200 Tax-exempt interest — $100 Net capital gains — $100 The dividends were qualified dividends on stock given to her by her grandparents. Irs 1040ez form Amanda's unearned income is $2,100. Irs 1040ez form This is the total of the dividends ($800), taxable interest ($1,200), and net capital gains ($100). Irs 1040ez form Her wages are earned (not unearned) income because they are received for work actually done. Irs 1040ez form Her tax-exempt interest is not included because it is nontaxable. Irs 1040ez form Trust income. Irs 1040ez form   If a child is the beneficiary of a trust, distributions of taxable interest, dividends, capital gains, and other unearned income from the trust are unearned income to the child. Irs 1040ez form   However, for purposes of completing Form 8615, a taxable distribution from a qualified disability trust is considered earned income, not unearned income. Irs 1040ez form Line 2 (deductions). Irs 1040ez form   If the child does not itemize deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040), enter $2,000 on line 2. Irs 1040ez form   If the child does itemize deductions, enter on line 2 the larger of: $1,000 plus the portion of the child's itemized deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 29, that are directly connected with the production of unearned income entered on line 1, or $2,000. Irs 1040ez form Directly connected. Irs 1040ez form   Itemized deductions are directly connected with the production of unearned income if they are for expenses paid to produce or collect taxable income or to manage, conserve, or maintain property held for producing income. Irs 1040ez form These expenses include custodian fees and service charges, service fees to collect taxable interest and dividends, and certain investment counsel fees. Irs 1040ez form   These expenses are added to certain other miscellaneous itemized deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). Irs 1040ez form Only the amount greater than 2% of the child's adjusted gross income can be deducted. Irs 1040ez form See chapter 28 for more information. Irs 1040ez form Example 1. Irs 1040ez form Roger, age 12, has unearned income of $8,000, no other income, no adjustments to income, and itemized deductions of $300 (net of the 2% limit) that are directly connected with his unearned income. Irs 1040ez form His adjusted gross income is $8,000, which is entered on Form 1040, line 38, and on Form 8615, line 1. Irs 1040ez form Roger enters $2,000 on line 2 because that is more than the total of $1,000 plus his directly connected itemized deductions of $300. Irs 1040ez form Example 2. Irs 1040ez form Eleanor, age 8, has unearned income of $16,000 and an early withdrawal penalty of $100. Irs 1040ez form She has no other income. Irs 1040ez form She has itemized deductions of $1,050 (net of the 2% limit) that are directly connected with the production of her unearned income. Irs 1040ez form Her adjusted gross income, entered on line 1, is $15,900 ($16,000 − $100). Irs 1040ez form The amount on line 2 is $2,050. Irs 1040ez form This is the larger of: $1,000 plus the $1,050 of directly connected itemized deductions, or $2,000. Irs 1040ez form Line 3. Irs 1040ez form   Subtract line 2 from line 1 and enter the result on this line. Irs 1040ez form If zero or less, do not complete the rest of the form. Irs 1040ez form However, you must still attach Form 8615 to the child's tax return. Irs 1040ez form Figure the tax on the child's taxable income in the normal manner.

Irs 1040ez form Figure the tax on the child's taxable income in the normal manner. Irs 1040ez form Step 2. Irs 1040ez form Figuring Tentative Tax at the Parent's Tax Rate (Form 8615, Part II) The next step in completing Form 8615 is to figure a tentative tax on the child's net unearned income at the parent's tax rate. Irs 1040ez form The tentative tax at the parent's tax rate is the difference between the tax on the parent's taxable income figured with the child's net unearned income (plus the net unearned income of any other child whose Form 8615 includes the tax return information of that parent) and the tax figured without it. Irs 1040ez form When figuring the tentative tax at the parent's tax rate on Form 8615, do not refigure any of the exclusions, deductions, or credits on the parent's return because of the child's net unearned income. Irs 1040ez form For example, do not refigure the medical expense deduction. Irs 1040ez form Figure the tentative tax on Form 8615, lines 6 through 13. Irs 1040ez form Note. Irs 1040ez form If the child or parent has any capital gains or losses, get Publication 929 for help in completing Form 8615, Part II. Irs 1040ez form Line 6 (parent's taxable income). Irs 1040ez form   Enter on line 6 the parent's taxable income from Form 1040, line 43, Form 1040A, line 27, or Form 1040EZ, line 6. Irs 1040ez form   If the Foreign Earned Income Tax Worksheet (in the Form 1040 instructions) was used to figure the parent's tax, enter the amount from line 3 of that worksheet instead of the parent's taxable income. Irs 1040ez form Line 7 (net unearned income of other children). Irs 1040ez form   If the tax return information of the parent is also used on any other child's Form 8615, enter on line 7 the total of the amounts from line 5 of all the other children's Forms 8615. Irs 1040ez form Do not include the amount from line 5 of the Form 8615 being completed. Irs 1040ez form Example. Irs 1040ez form Paul and Jane Persimmon have three children, Sharon, Jerry, and Mike, who must attach Form 8615 to their tax returns. Irs 1040ez form The children's net unearned income amounts on line 5 of their Forms 8615 are: Sharon — $800 Jerry — $600 Mike — $1,000 Line 7 of Sharon's Form 8615 will show $1,600, the total of the amounts on line 5 of Jerry's and Mike's Forms 8615. Irs 1040ez form Line 7 of Jerry's Form 8615 will show $1,800 ($800 + $1,000). Irs 1040ez form Line 7 of Mike's Form 8615 will show $1,400 ($800 + $600). Irs 1040ez form Other children's information not available. Irs 1040ez form   If the net unearned income of the other children is not available when the return is due, either file the return using estimates or get an extension of time to file. Irs 1040ez form See Parent's return information not known timely , earlier. Irs 1040ez form Line 11 (tentative tax). Irs 1040ez form   Subtract line 10 from line 9 and enter the result on this line. Irs 1040ez form This is the tentative tax. Irs 1040ez form   If line 7 is blank, skip lines 12a and 12b and enter the amount from line 11 on line 13. Irs 1040ez form Also skip the discussion for lines 12a and 12b that follows. Irs 1040ez form Lines 12a and 12b (dividing the tentative tax). Irs 1040ez form   If an amount is entered on line 7, divide the tentative tax shown on line 11 among the children according to each child's share of the total net unearned income. Irs 1040ez form This is done on lines 12a, 12b, and 13. Irs 1040ez form Add the amount on line 7 to the amount on line 5 and enter the total on line 12a. Irs 1040ez form Divide the amount on line 5 by the amount on line 12a and enter the result, as a decimal, on line 12b. Irs 1040ez form Example. Irs 1040ez form In the earlier example under Line 7 (net unearned income of other children), Sharon's Form 8615 shows $1,600 on line 7. Irs 1040ez form The amount entered on line 12a is $2,400, the total of the amounts on lines 5 and 7 ($800 + $1,600). Irs 1040ez form The decimal on line 12b is  . Irs 1040ez form 333, figured as follows and rounded to three places. Irs 1040ez form   $800 = . Irs 1040ez form 333     $2,400   Step 3. Irs 1040ez form Figuring the Child's Tax (Form 8615, Part III) The final step in figuring a child's tax using Form 8615 is to determine the larger of: The total of: The child's share of the tentative tax based on the parent's tax rate, plus The tax on the child's taxable income in excess of net unearned income, figured at the child's tax rate, or The tax on the child's taxable income, figured at the child's tax rate. Irs 1040ez form This is the child's tax. Irs 1040ez form It is figured on Form 8615, lines 14 through 18. Irs 1040ez form Alternative minimum tax. Irs 1040ez form   A child may be subject to alternative minimum tax (AMT) if he or she has certain items given preferential treatment under the tax law.
