Myfreetaxes 2014 Rules for All Dependents This part of the publication discusses the filing requirements for dependents, who is responsible for a child's return, how to figure a dependent's standard deduction and exemption (if any), and whether a dependent can claim exemption from federal income tax withholding. Myfreetaxes 2014 Filing Requirements Whether a dependent has to file a return generally depends on the amount of the dependent's earned and unearned income and whether the dependent is married, is age 65 or older, or is blind. Myfreetaxes 2014 A dependent may have to file a return even if his or her income is less than the amount that would normally require a return. Myfreetaxes 2014 See Other Filing Requirements, later. Myfreetaxes 2014 The following sections apply to dependents with: Earned income only, Unearned income only, and Both earned and unearned income. Myfreetaxes 2014  To find out whether a dependent must file, read the section that applies, or use Table 1. Myfreetaxes 2014 Earned Income Only A dependent whose gross income is only earned income must file a return if the gross income is more than the amount listed in the following table. Myfreetaxes 2014 Marital Status Amount Single   Under 65 and not blind $6,100 Either 65 or older or blind $7,600 65 or older and blind $9,100 Married*   Under 65 and not blind $6,100 Either 65 or older or blind $7,300 65 or older and blind $8,500 *If a dependent's spouse itemizes deductions on a separate return, the dependent must file a return if the dependent has $5 or more of gross income (earned and/or unearned). Myfreetaxes 2014 Example. Myfreetaxes 2014 William is 16. Myfreetaxes 2014 His mother claims an exemption for him on her income tax return. Myfreetaxes 2014 He worked part time on weekends during the school year and full time during the summer. Myfreetaxes 2014 He earned $7,000 in wages. Myfreetaxes 2014 He did not have any unearned income. Myfreetaxes 2014 He must file a tax return because he has earned income only and his gross income is more than $6,100. Myfreetaxes 2014 If he is blind, he does not have to file a return because his gross income is not more than $7,600. Myfreetaxes 2014 Unearned Income Only A dependent whose gross income is only unearned income must file a return if the gross income is more than the amount listed in the following table. Myfreetaxes 2014 Marital Status Amount Single   Under 65 and not blind $1,000 Either 65 or older or blind $2,500 65 or older and blind $4,000 Married*   Under 65 and not blind $1,000 Either 65 or older or blind $2,200 65 or older and blind $3,400 *If a dependent's spouse itemizes deductions on a separate return, the dependent must file a return if the dependent has $5 or more of gross income (earned and/or unearned). Myfreetaxes 2014 Example. Myfreetaxes 2014 Sarah is 18 and single. Myfreetaxes 2014 Her parents can claim an exemption for her on their income tax return. Myfreetaxes 2014 She received $1,970 of taxable interest and dividend income. Myfreetaxes 2014 She did not work during the year. Myfreetaxes 2014 She must file a tax return because she has unearned income only and her gross income is more than $1,000. Myfreetaxes 2014 If she is blind, she does not have to file a return because she has unearned income only and her gross income is not more than $2,500. Myfreetaxes 2014 Election to report child's unearned income on parent's return. Myfreetaxes 2014   A parent of a child under age 19 (or under age 24 if a full-time student) may be able to elect to include the child's interest and dividend income on the parent's return. Myfreetaxes 2014 See Parent's Election To Report Child's Interest and Dividends in Part 2. Myfreetaxes 2014 If the parent makes this election, the child does not have to file a return. Myfreetaxes 2014 Both Earned and Unearned Income A dependent who has both earned and unearned income generally must file a return if the dependent's gross income is more than line 5 of the following worksheet.

Myfreetaxes 2014 A dependent must file a tax return if he or she owes any other taxes, such as: Social security and Medicare taxes on tips not reported to his or her employer or on wages received from an employer who did not withhold these taxes, Uncollected social security and Medicare or railroad retirement taxes on tips reported to his or her employer or on group-term life insurance, Alternative minimum tax, Additional tax on a health savings account from Form 8889, Part III, Recapture taxes, such as the tax from recapture of an education credit, or Additional tax on a qualified plan, including an individual retirement arrangement (IRA), or other tax-favored account. Myfreetaxes 2014 But if the dependent is filing a return only because of this tax, the dependent can file Form 5329 by itself. Myfreetaxes 2014 A dependent must also file a tax return if he or she: Had wages of $108. Myfreetaxes 2014 28 or more from a church or qualified church-controlled organization that is exempt from employer social security and Medicare taxes, or Had net earnings from self-employment of at least $400. Myfreetaxes 2014 Spouse itemizes. Myfreetaxes 2014   A dependent must file a return if the dependent's spouse itemizes deductions on a separate return and the dependent has $5 or more of gross income (earned and/or unearned). Myfreetaxes 2014 Should a Return Be Filed Even If Not Required? Even if a dependent does not meet any of the filing requirements discussed earlier, he or she should file a tax return if either of the following applies. Myfreetaxes 2014 Income tax was withheld from his or her income. Myfreetaxes 2014 He or she qualifies for the earned income credit, additional child tax credit, health coverage tax credit, or refundable American opportunity education credit. Myfreetaxes 2014 See the tax return instructions to find out who qualifies for these credits. Myfreetaxes 2014  By filing a return, the dependent can get a refund. Myfreetaxes 2014 Responsibility for Child's Return Generally, a child is responsible for filing his or her own tax return and for paying any tax, penalties, or interest on that return. Myfreetaxes 2014 If a child cannot file his or her own return for any reason, such as age, the child's parent, guardian, or other legally responsible person must file it for the child. Myfreetaxes 2014 Signing the child's return. Myfreetaxes 2014   If the child cannot sign his or her return, a parent or guardian must sign the child's name followed by the words “By (signature), parent (or guardian) for minor child. Myfreetaxes 2014 ” Authority of parent or guardian. Myfreetaxes 2014   A parent or guardian who signs a return on a child's behalf can deal with the IRS on all matters connected with the return. Myfreetaxes 2014   In general, a parent or guardian who does not sign the child's return can only provide information concerning the child's return and pay the child's tax. Myfreetaxes 2014 That parent or guardian is not entitled to receive information from the IRS or legally bind the child to a tax liability arising from the return. Myfreetaxes 2014 Third party designee. Myfreetaxes 2014   A child's parent or guardian who does not sign the child's return may be authorized, as a third party designee, to discuss the processing of the return with the IRS as well as provide information concerning the return. Myfreetaxes 2014 The child or the person signing the return on the child's behalf must check the “Yes” box in the “Third Party Designee” area of the return and name the parent or guardian as the designee. Myfreetaxes 2014   If designated, a parent or guardian can respond to certain IRS notices and receive information about the processing of the return and the status of a refund or payment. Myfreetaxes 2014 This designation does not authorize the parent or guardian to receive any refund check, bind the child to any tax liability, or otherwise represent the child before the IRS. Myfreetaxes 2014 See the return instructions for more information. Myfreetaxes 2014 Designated as representative. Myfreetaxes 2014   A parent or guardian who does not sign the child's return may be designated as the child's representative by the child or the person signing the return on the child's behalf. Myfreetaxes 2014 Form 2848, Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative, is used to designate a child's representative. Myfreetaxes 2014 See Publication 947, Practice Before the IRS and Power of Attorney, for more information. Myfreetaxes 2014   If designated, a parent or guardian can receive information about the child's return but cannot legally bind the child to a tax liability unless authorized to do so by the law of the state in which the child lives. Myfreetaxes 2014 IRS notice. Myfreetaxes 2014   If you or the child receives a notice from the IRS concerning the child's return or tax liability, you should immediately inform the IRS that the notice concerns a child. Myfreetaxes 2014 The notice will show who to contact. Myfreetaxes 2014 The IRS will try to resolve the matter with the parent(s) or guardian(s) of the child consistent with their authority. Myfreetaxes 2014 Child's earnings. Myfreetaxes 2014   For federal income tax purposes, amounts a child earns by performing services are included in the gross income of the child and not the gross income of the parent. Myfreetaxes 2014 This is true even if, under state law, the parent has the right to the earnings and may actually have received them. Myfreetaxes 2014 If the child does not pay the tax due on this income, the parent may be liable for the tax. Myfreetaxes 2014 Child's expenses. Myfreetaxes 2014   Deductions for payments that are made out of a child's earnings are the child's, even if the payments are made by the parent. Myfreetaxes 2014 Example. Myfreetaxes 2014 You made payments on your child's behalf that are deductible as a business expense and a charitable contribution. Myfreetaxes 2014 You made the payments out of your child's earnings. Myfreetaxes 2014 These items can be deducted only on the child's return. Myfreetaxes 2014 Standard Deduction The standard deduction for an individual who can be claimed as a dependent on another person's tax return is generally limited to the larger of: $1,000, or The individual's earned income plus $350, but not more than the regular standard deduction (generally $6,100). Myfreetaxes 2014 However, the standard deduction may be higher for a dependent who: Is 65 or older, or Is blind. Myfreetaxes 2014 Certain dependents cannot claim any standard deduction. Myfreetaxes 2014 See Standard Deduction of Zero , later. Myfreetaxes 2014 Worksheet 1. Myfreetaxes 2014   Use Worksheet 1 to figure the dependent's standard deduction. Myfreetaxes 2014 Worksheet 1. Myfreetaxes 2014 Standard Deduction Worksheet for Dependents Use this worksheet only if someone else can claim you (or your spouse, if filing jointly) as a dependent.

Myfreetaxes 2014 On line 5a, she enters $2,850 (the smaller of $2,850 or $6,100) as her standard deduction. Myfreetaxes 2014 Example 3. Myfreetaxes 2014 Amy, who is single, is claimed as a dependent on her parents' tax return. Myfreetaxes 2014 She is 18 years old and blind. Myfreetaxes 2014 She has taxable interest income of $1,000 and wages of $2,000. Myfreetaxes 2014 She enters $2,350 (her earned income plus $350) on line 1 of Worksheet 1. Myfreetaxes 2014 She enters $2,350 (the larger of $2,350 or $1,000) on line 3, $6,100 on line 4, and $2,350 (the smaller of $2,350 or $6,100) on line 5a. Myfreetaxes 2014 Because Amy is blind, she checks the box for blindness and enters “1” in box c at the top of Worksheet 1. Myfreetaxes 2014 She enters $1,500 (the number in box c times $1,500) on line 5b. Myfreetaxes 2014 Her standard deduction on line 5c is $3,850 ($2,350 + $1,500). Myfreetaxes 2014 Standard Deduction of Zero The standard deduction for the following dependents is zero. Myfreetaxes 2014 A married dependent filing a separate return whose spouse itemizes deductions. Myfreetaxes 2014 A dependent who files a return for a period of less than 12 months due to a change in his or her annual accounting period. Myfreetaxes 2014 A nonresident or dual-status alien dependent, unless the dependent is married to a U. Myfreetaxes 2014 S. Myfreetaxes 2014 citizen or resident alien at the end of the year and chooses to be treated as a U. Myfreetaxes 2014 S. Myfreetaxes 2014 resident for the year. Myfreetaxes 2014 See Publication 519, U. Myfreetaxes 2014 S. Myfreetaxes 2014 Tax Guide for Aliens, for information on making this choice. Myfreetaxes 2014 Example. Myfreetaxes 2014 Jennifer, who is a dependent of her parents, is entitled to file a joint return with her husband. Myfreetaxes 2014 However, her husband elects to file a separate return and itemize his deductions. Myfreetaxes 2014 Because he itemizes, Jennifer's standard deduction on her return is zero. Myfreetaxes 2014 She can, however, itemize any of her allowable deductions. Myfreetaxes 2014 Dependent's Own Exemption A person who can be claimed as a dependent on another taxpayer's return cannot claim his or her own exemption. Myfreetaxes 2014 This is true even if the other taxpayer does not actually claim the exemption. Myfreetaxes 2014 Example. Myfreetaxes 2014 James and Barbara can claim their child, Ben, as a dependent on their return. Myfreetaxes 2014 Ben is a college student who works during the summer and must file a tax return. Myfreetaxes 2014 Ben cannot claim his own exemption on his return. Myfreetaxes 2014 This is true even if James and Barbara do not claim him as a dependent on their return. Myfreetaxes 2014 Withholding From Wages Employers generally withhold federal income tax, social security tax, and Medicare tax from an employee's wages. Myfreetaxes 2014 If the employee claims exemption from withholding on Form W-4, the employer will not withhold federal income tax. Myfreetaxes 2014 The exemption from withholding does not apply to social security and Medicare taxes. Myfreetaxes 2014 Conditions for exemption from withholding. Myfreetaxes 2014   An employee can claim exemption from withholding for 2014 only if he or she meets both of the following conditions. Myfreetaxes 2014 For 2013, the employee had a right to a refund of all federal income tax withheld because he or she had no tax liability. Myfreetaxes 2014 For 2014, the employee expects a refund of all federal income tax withheld because he or she expects to have no tax liability. Myfreetaxes 2014 Dependents. Myfreetaxes 2014   An employee who is a dependent ordinarily cannot claim exemption from withholding if both of the following are true. Myfreetaxes 2014 The employee's gross income will be more than $1,000, the minimum standard deduction for 2014. Myfreetaxes 2014 The employee's unearned income will be more than $350. Myfreetaxes 2014 Exceptions. Myfreetaxes 2014   An employee may be able to claim exemption from withholding even if the employee is a dependent, if the employee: Is age 65 or older, Is blind, or Will claim on his or her 2014 tax return: Adjustments to income, Tax credits, or Itemized deductions. Myfreetaxes 2014 The above exceptions do not apply to supplemental wages greater than $1,000,000. Myfreetaxes 2014 For more information, see Exemption From Withholding in chapter 1 of Publication 505. Myfreetaxes 2014 Example. Myfreetaxes 2014 Guy is 17 and a student. Myfreetaxes 2014 During the summer he works part time at a grocery store. Myfreetaxes 2014 He expects to earn about $1,200 this year. Myfreetaxes 2014 He also worked at the store last summer and received a refund of all his withheld income tax because he did not have a tax liability. Myfreetaxes 2014 The only other income he expects during the year is $375 interest on a savings account. Myfreetaxes 2014 He expects that his parents will be able to claim him as a dependent on their tax return. Myfreetaxes 2014 He is not blind and will not claim adjustments to income, itemized deductions, a higher standard deduction, or tax credits on his return. Myfreetaxes 2014 Guy cannot claim exemption from withholding when he fills out Form W-4 because his parents will be able to claim him as a dependent, his gross income will be more than $1,000 (the minimum standard deduction amount) and his unearned income will be more than $350. Myfreetaxes 2014 Claiming exemption from withholding. Myfreetaxes 2014    To claim exemption from withholding, an employee must enter “Exempt” in the space provided on Form W-4, line 7. Myfreetaxes 2014 The employee must complete the rest of the form, as explained in the form instructions, and give it to his or her employer. Myfreetaxes 2014 Renewing an exemption from withholding. Myfreetaxes 2014   An exemption from withholding is good for only one year. Myfreetaxes 2014 An employee must file a new Form W-4 by February 15 each year to continue the exemption. Myfreetaxes 2014 Part 2. Myfreetaxes 2014 Tax on Unearned Income of Certain Children The two rules that follow may affect the tax on the unearned income of certain children. Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 (See Parent's Election To Report Child's Interest and Dividends , later. Myfreetaxes 2014 ) 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 (See Tax for Certain Children Who Have Unearned Income , later. Myfreetaxes 2014 ) For these rules, the term “child” includes a legally adopted child and a stepchild. Myfreetaxes 2014 These rules apply whether or not the child is a dependent. Myfreetaxes 2014 These rules do not apply if neither of the child's parents were living at the end of the year. Myfreetaxes 2014 Which Parent's Return To Use If a child's parents are married to each other and file a joint return, use the joint return to figure the tax on the child's unearned income. Myfreetaxes 2014 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 . Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 Only the parent whose tax return is used can make the election described under Parent's Election To Report Child's Interest and Dividends . Myfreetaxes 2014 Parents are married. Myfreetaxes 2014   If the child's parents file separate returns, use the return of the parent with the greater taxable income. Myfreetaxes 2014 Parents not living together. Myfreetaxes 2014   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. Myfreetaxes 2014 If the custodial parent is not considered unmarried, use the return of the parent with the greater taxable income. Myfreetaxes 2014   For an explanation of when a married person living apart from his or her spouse is considered unmarried, see Head of Household in Publication 501. Myfreetaxes 2014 Parents are divorced. Myfreetaxes 2014   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. Myfreetaxes 2014 Custodial parent remarried. Myfreetaxes 2014   If the custodial parent has remarried, the stepparent (rather than the noncustodial parent) is treated as the child's other parent. Myfreetaxes 2014 Therefore, if the custodial parent and the stepparent file a joint return, use that joint return. Myfreetaxes 2014 Do not use the return of the noncustodial parent. Myfreetaxes 2014   If the custodial parent and the stepparent are married, but file separate returns, use the return of the one with the greater taxable income. Myfreetaxes 2014 If the custodial parent and the stepparent are married but not living together, the earlier discussion under Parents not living together applies. Myfreetaxes 2014 Parents never married. Myfreetaxes 2014   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. Myfreetaxes 2014 If the parents did not live together all year, the rules explained earlier under Parents are divorced apply. Myfreetaxes 2014 Widowed parent remarried. Myfreetaxes 2014   If a widow or widower remarries, the new spouse is treated as the child's other parent. Myfreetaxes 2014 The rules explained earlier under Custodial parent remarried apply. Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 If you do, your child will not have to file a return. Myfreetaxes 2014 You can make this election only if all the following conditions are met. Myfreetaxes 2014 Your child was under age 19 (or under age 24 if a full-time student) at the end of the year. Myfreetaxes 2014 Your child had income only from interest and dividends (including capital gain distributions and Alaska Permanent Fund dividends). Myfreetaxes 2014 The child's gross income was less than $10,000. Myfreetaxes 2014 The child is required to file a return unless you make this election. Myfreetaxes 2014 The child does not file a joint return for the year. Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 No federal income tax was withheld from your child's income under the backup withholding rules. Myfreetaxes 2014 You are the parent whose return must be used when applying the special tax rules for children. Myfreetaxes 2014 (See Which Parent's Return To Use , earlier. Myfreetaxes 2014 ) These conditions are also shown in Figure 1. Myfreetaxes 2014 Certain January 1 birthdays. Myfreetaxes 2014   A child born on January 1, 1995, is considered to be age 19 at the end of 2013. Myfreetaxes 2014 You cannot make this election for such a child unless the child was a full-time student. Myfreetaxes 2014   A child born on January 1, 1990, is considered to be age 24 at the end of 2013. Myfreetaxes 2014 You cannot make this election for such a child. Myfreetaxes 2014 How to make the election. Myfreetaxes 2014    Make the election by attaching Form 8814 to your Form 1040 or Form 1040NR. Myfreetaxes 2014 (If you make this election, you cannot file Form 1040A or Form 1040EZ. Myfreetaxes 2014 ) Attach a separate Form 8814 for each child for whom you make the election. Myfreetaxes 2014 You can make the election for one or more children and not for others. Myfreetaxes 2014 Effect of Making the Election The federal income tax on your child's income may be more if you make the Form 8814 election. Myfreetaxes 2014 Rate may be higher. Myfreetaxes 2014   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. Myfreetaxes 2014 This is because the tax rate on the child's income between $1,000 and $2,000 is 10% if you make this election. Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 Deductions you cannot take. Myfreetaxes 2014   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. Myfreetaxes 2014 The additional standard deduction if the child is blind. Myfreetaxes 2014 The deduction for a penalty on an early withdrawal of your child's savings. Myfreetaxes 2014 Itemized deductions (such as your child's investment expenses or charitable contributions). Myfreetaxes 2014 Figure 1. Myfreetaxes 2014 Can You Include Your Child's Income On Your Tax Return? Please click here for the text description of the image. Myfreetaxes 2014 Figure 1. Myfreetaxes 2014 Can You Include Your Child's Income On Your Tax Return? Deductible investment interest. Myfreetaxes 2014   If you use Form 8814, your child's unearned income is considered your unearned income. Myfreetaxes 2014 To figure the limit on your deductible investment interest, add the child's unearned income to yours. Myfreetaxes 2014 However, if your child received qualified dividends, capital gain distributions, or Alaska Permanent Fund dividends, see chapter 3 of Publication 550 for information about how to figure the limit. Myfreetaxes 2014 Alternative minimum tax. Myfreetaxes 2014    If your child received tax-exempt interest (or exempt-interest dividends paid by a regulated investment company) from certain private activity bonds, you must determine if that interest is a tax preference item for alternative minimum tax (AMT) purposes. Myfreetaxes 2014 If it is, you must include it with your own tax preference items when figuring your AMT. Myfreetaxes 2014 See Form 6251, Alternative Minimum Tax—Individuals, and its instructions for details. Myfreetaxes 2014 Reduced deductions or credits. Myfreetaxes 2014   If you use Form 8814, your increased adjusted gross income may reduce certain deductions or credits on your return, including the following. Myfreetaxes 2014 Deduction for contributions to a traditional individual retirement arrangement (IRA). Myfreetaxes 2014 Deduction for student loan interest. Myfreetaxes 2014 Itemized deductions for medical expenses, casualty and theft losses, and certain miscellaneous expenses. Myfreetaxes 2014 Credit for child and dependent care expenses. Myfreetaxes 2014 Child tax credit. Myfreetaxes 2014 Education tax credits. Myfreetaxes 2014 Earned income credit. Myfreetaxes 2014 Penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. Myfreetaxes 2014   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. Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 Get Publication 505 for more information. Myfreetaxes 2014 Figuring Child's Income Use Form 8814, Part I, to figure your child's interest and dividend income to report on your return. Myfreetaxes 2014 Only the amount over $2,000 is added to your income. Myfreetaxes 2014 The amount over $2,000 is shown on Form 8814, line 6. Myfreetaxes 2014 Unless the child's income includes qualified dividends or capital gain distributions (discussed next), the same amount is shown on Form 8814, line 12. Myfreetaxes 2014 Include the amount from Form 8814, line 12, on Form 1040 or Form 1040NR, line 21. Myfreetaxes 2014 If you file more than one Form 8814, include the total amounts from line 12 of all your Forms 8814 on Form 1040 or Form 1040NR, line 21. Myfreetaxes 2014 On the dotted line next to line 21, enter “Form 8814” and the total of the Form 8814, line 12 amounts. Myfreetaxes 2014 Note. Myfreetaxes 2014 The tax on the first $2,000 is figured on Form 8814, Part II. Myfreetaxes 2014 See Figuring Additional Tax , later. Myfreetaxes 2014 Qualified dividends. Myfreetaxes 2014   Enter on Form 8814, line 2a, any ordinary dividends your child received. Myfreetaxes 2014 This amount may include qualified dividends. Myfreetaxes 2014 Qualified dividends are those dividends reported on Form 1040, line 9b, or Form 1040NR, line 10b, and are eligible for lower tax rates that apply to a net capital gain. Myfreetaxes 2014 For detailed information about qualified dividends, see Publication 550. Myfreetaxes 2014   If your child received qualified dividends, the amount of these dividends that is added to your income must be reported on Form 1040, lines 9a and 9b, or Form 1040NR, lines 10a and 10b. Myfreetaxes 2014 You do not include these dividends on Form 8814, line 12, or on line 21 of Form 1040 or Form 1040NR. Myfreetaxes 2014   Enter the child's qualified dividends on Form 8814, line 2b. Myfreetaxes 2014 But do not include this amount on Form 1040, lines 9a and 9b, or Form 1040NR, lines 10a and 10b. Myfreetaxes 2014 Instead, include the amount from Form 8814, line 9, on Form 1040, lines 9a and 9b, or Form 1040NR, lines 10a and 10b. Myfreetaxes 2014 (The amount on Form 8814, line 9, may be less than the amount on Form 8814, line 2b, because lines 7 through 12 of the form divide the $2,000 base amount on Form 8814, line 5, between the child's qualified dividends, capital gain distributions, and other interest and dividend income, reducing each of those amounts. Myfreetaxes 2014 ) Capital gain distributions. Myfreetaxes 2014   Enter on Form 8814, line 3, any capital gain distributions your child received. Myfreetaxes 2014 The amount of these distributions that is added to your income must be reported on Schedule D (Form 1040), line 13, or, if you are not required to file Schedule D, on Form 1040, line 13, or Form 1040NR, line 14. Myfreetaxes 2014 You do not include it on Form 8814, line 12, or on line 21 of Form 1040 or Form 1040NR. Myfreetaxes 2014   Include the amount from Form 8814, line 10, on Schedule D, line 13; Form 1040, line 13; or Form 1040NR, line 14, whichever applies. Myfreetaxes 2014 (The amount on Form 8814, line 10, may be less than the amount on Form 8814, line 3, because lines 7 through 12 of the form divide the $2,000 base amount on Form 8814, line 5, between the child's qualified dividends, capital gain distributions, and other interest and dividend income, reducing each of those amounts. Myfreetaxes 2014 ) Collectibles (28% rate) gain. Myfreetaxes 2014    If any of the child's capital gain distributions are reported on Form 1099-DIV as collectibles (28% rate) gain, you must determine how much to also include on line 4 of the 28% Rate Gain Worksheet, in the instructions for Schedule D, line 18. Myfreetaxes 2014 Multiply the child's capital gain distribution included on Schedule D, line 13, by a fraction. Myfreetaxes 2014 The numerator is the part of the child's total capital gain distribution that is collectibles (28% rate) gain. Myfreetaxes 2014 The denominator is the child's total capital gain distribution. Myfreetaxes 2014 Enter the result on line 4 of the 28% Rate Gain Worksheet. Myfreetaxes 2014 Unrecaptured section 1250 gain. Myfreetaxes 2014   If any of the child's capital gain distributions are reported on Form 1099-DIV as unrecaptured section 1250 gain, you must determine how much to include on line 11 of the Unrecaptured Section 1250 Gain Worksheet in the instructions for Schedule D, line 19. Myfreetaxes 2014 Multiply the child's capital gain distribution included on Schedule D, line 13, by a fraction. Myfreetaxes 2014 The numerator is the part of the child's total capital gain distribution that is unrecaptured section 1250 gain. Myfreetaxes 2014 The denominator is the child's total capital gain distribution. Myfreetaxes 2014 Enter the result on the Unrecaptured Section 1250 Gain Worksheet, line 11. Myfreetaxes 2014 Section 1202 gain. Myfreetaxes 2014   If any of the child's capital gain distributions are reported as section 1202 gain (gain on qualified small business stock) on Form 1099-DIV, part or all of that gain may be eligible for the section 1202 exclusion. Myfreetaxes 2014 (For information about the exclusion, see chapter 4 of Publication 550. Myfreetaxes 2014 ) To figure that part, multiply the child's capital gain distribution included on Schedule D, line 13, by a fraction. Myfreetaxes 2014 The numerator is the part of the child's total capital gain distribution that is section 1202 gain. Myfreetaxes 2014 The denominator is the child's total capital gain distribution. Myfreetaxes 2014 Your section 1202 exclusion is generally 50% of the result, but may be subject to a limit. Myfreetaxes 2014 In some cases, the exclusion is more than 50%. Myfreetaxes 2014 See the instructions for Schedule D for details and information on how to report the exclusion amount. Myfreetaxes 2014 Example. Myfreetaxes 2014 Fred is 6 years old. Myfreetaxes 2014 In 2013, he received dividend income of $2,100, which included $1,575 of ordinary dividends and a $525 capital gain distribution from a mutual fund. Myfreetaxes 2014 (None of the distributions were reported on Form 1099-DIV as unrecaptured section 1250 gain, section 1202 gain, or collectibles (28% rate) gain. Myfreetaxes 2014 ) All of the ordinary dividends are qualified dividends. Myfreetaxes 2014 He has no other income and is not subject to backup withholding. Myfreetaxes 2014 No estimated tax payments were made under his name and social security number. Myfreetaxes 2014 Fred's parents elect to include Fred's income on their tax return instead of filing a return for him. Myfreetaxes 2014 They figure the amount to report on Form 1040, lines 9a and 9b, the amount to report on their Schedule D, line 13, and the amount to report on Form 1040, line 21, as follows. Myfreetaxes 2014 They leave lines 1a and 1b of Form 8814 blank because Fred does not have any interest income. Myfreetaxes 2014 They enter his ordinary dividends of $1,575 on lines 2a and 2b because all of Fred's ordinary dividends are qualified dividends. Myfreetaxes 2014 They enter the amount of Fred's capital gain distributions, $525, on line 3. Myfreetaxes 2014 Next, they add the amounts on lines 1a, 2a, and 3 and enter the result, $2,100, on line 4. Myfreetaxes 2014 They subtract the base amount on line 5, $2,000, from the amount on line 4, $2,100, and enter the result, $100, on line 6. Myfreetaxes 2014 This is the total amount from Form 8814 to be reported on their return. Myfreetaxes 2014 Next, they figure how much of this amount is qualified dividends and how much is capital gain distributions. Myfreetaxes 2014 They divide the amount on line 2b, $1,575, by the amount on line 4, $2,100. Myfreetaxes 2014 They enter the result, . Myfreetaxes 2014 75, on line 7. Myfreetaxes 2014 They divide the amount on line 3, $525, by the amount on line 4, $2,100. Myfreetaxes 2014 They enter the result, . Myfreetaxes 2014 25, on line 8. Myfreetaxes 2014 They multiply the amount on line 6, $100, by the decimal on line 7, . Myfreetaxes 2014 75, and enter the result, $75, on line 9. Myfreetaxes 2014 They multiply the amount on line 6, $100, by the decimal on line 8, . Myfreetaxes 2014 25, and enter the result, $25, on line 10. Myfreetaxes 2014 They include the amount from line 9, $75, on lines 9a and 9b of their Form 1040 and enter “Form 8814 – $75” on the dotted lines next to lines 9a and 9b. Myfreetaxes 2014 They include the amount from line 10, $25, on line 13 of their Schedule D (Form 1040) and enter “Form 8814 – $25” on the dotted line next to Schedule D, line 13. Myfreetaxes 2014 They enter $100 ($75 + $25) on line 11 and -0- ($100 – $100) on line 12. Myfreetaxes 2014 Because the amount on line 12 is -0-, they do not include any amount from Form 8814 on their Form 1040, line 21. Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 This tax is added to the tax figured on your income. Myfreetaxes 2014 This additional tax is the smaller of: 10% x (your child's gross income − $1,000), or $100. Myfreetaxes 2014 Include the amount from line 15 of all your Forms 8814 in the total on Form 1040, line 44, or Form 1040NR, line 42. Myfreetaxes 2014 Check box a on Form 1040, line 44, or Form 1040NR, line 42. Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 Attach the completed form to the child's Form 1040, Form 1040A, or Form 1040NR. Myfreetaxes 2014 When Form 8615 must be filed. Myfreetaxes 2014   Form 8615 must be filed for a child if all of the following statements are true. Myfreetaxes 2014 The child's unearned income was more than $2,000. Myfreetaxes 2014 The child is required to file a return for 2013. Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 At least one of the child's parents was alive at the end of 2013. Myfreetaxes 2014 The child does not file a joint return for 2013. Myfreetaxes 2014 These conditions are also shown in Figure 2. Myfreetaxes 2014 Certain January 1 birthdays. Myfreetaxes 2014   Use the following chart to determine whether certain children with January 1 birthdays meet condition 3 under When Form 8615 must be filed. Myfreetaxes 2014 IF a child was born on.

Myfreetaxes 2014 The child meets condition 3 only if the child did not have earned income that was more than half of the child's support. Myfreetaxes 2014  **This child meets condition 3 only if the child was a full-time student who did not have earned income that was more than half of the child's support. Myfreetaxes 2014  ***Do not use Form 8615 for this child. Myfreetaxes 2014 Figure 2. Myfreetaxes 2014 Do You Have To Use Form 8615 To Figure Your Child's Tax? Please click here for the text description of the image. Myfreetaxes 2014 Figure 2. Myfreetaxes 2014 Do You Have To Use Form 8615 To Figure Your Child's Tax? Providing Parental Information (Form 8615, Lines A–C) On Form 8615, lines A and B, enter the parent's name and social security number. Myfreetaxes 2014 (If the parents filed a joint return, enter the name and social security number listed first on the joint return. Myfreetaxes 2014 ) On line C, check the box for the parent's filing status. Myfreetaxes 2014 See Which Parent's Return To Use, earlier, for information on which parent's return information must be used on Form 8615. Myfreetaxes 2014 Parent with different tax year. Myfreetaxes 2014   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. Myfreetaxes 2014 Example. Myfreetaxes 2014 Kimberly must use her mother's tax and taxable income to complete her Form 8615 for calendar year 2013 (January 1 – December 31). Myfreetaxes 2014 Kimberly's mother files her tax return on a fiscal year basis (July 1 – June 30). Myfreetaxes 2014 Kimberly must use the information on her mother's return for the tax year ending June 30, 2013, to complete her 2013 Form 8615. Myfreetaxes 2014 Parent's return information not known timely. Myfreetaxes 2014   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. Myfreetaxes 2014   You can use any reasonable estimate. Myfreetaxes 2014 This includes using information from last year's return. Myfreetaxes 2014 If you use an estimated amount on Form 8615, enter “Estimated” on the line next to the amount. Myfreetaxes 2014   When you get the correct information, file an amended return on Form 1040X, Amended U. Myfreetaxes 2014 S. Myfreetaxes 2014 Individual Income Tax Return. Myfreetaxes 2014 Extension of time to file. Myfreetaxes 2014   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. Myfreetaxes 2014 S. Myfreetaxes 2014 Individual Income Tax Return. Myfreetaxes 2014 See the instructions for Form 4868 for details. Myfreetaxes 2014    An extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay. Myfreetaxes 2014 You must make an accurate estimate of the tax for 2013. Myfreetaxes 2014 If you do not pay the full amount due by the regular due date, the child will owe interest and may also be charged penalties. Myfreetaxes 2014 See Form 4868 and its instructions. Myfreetaxes 2014 Parent's return information not available. Myfreetaxes 2014   If a child cannot get the required information about his or her parent's tax return, the child (or the child's legal representative) can request the necessary information from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Myfreetaxes 2014 How to request. Myfreetaxes 2014   After the end of the tax year, send a signed, written request for the information to the Internal Revenue Service Center where the parent's return will be filed. Myfreetaxes 2014 (The IRS cannot process a request received before the end of the tax year. Myfreetaxes 2014 )    You should also consider getting an extension of time to file the child's return, because there may be a delay in getting the requested information. Myfreetaxes 2014   The request must contain all of the following. Myfreetaxes 2014 A statement that you are making the request to comply with section 1(g) of the Internal Revenue Code and that you have tried to get the information from the parent. Myfreetaxes 2014 Proof of the child's age (for example, a copy of the child's birth certificate). Myfreetaxes 2014 Evidence the child has more than $2,000 of unearned income (for example, a copy of the child's prior year tax return or copies of Forms 1099 for the current year). Myfreetaxes 2014 The name, address, social security number (if known), and filing status (if known) of the parent whose information is to be shown on Form 8615. Myfreetaxes 2014    A child's legal representative making the request should include a copy of his or her Power of Attorney, such as Form 2848, or proof of legal guardianship. Myfreetaxes 2014 Step 1. Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 To do that, use Form 8615, Part I. Myfreetaxes 2014 Line 1 (Unearned Income) If the child had no earned income, enter on this line the adjusted gross income shown on the child's return. Myfreetaxes 2014 Adjusted gross income is shown on Form 1040, line 38; Form 1040A, line 22; or Form 1040NR, line 37. Myfreetaxes 2014 Form 1040EZ and Form 1040NR-EZ cannot be used if Form 8615 must be filed. Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 However, use the following worksheet if: the child has excluded any foreign earned income, deducted a loss from self-employment, or has a net operating loss from another year. Myfreetaxes 2014 Alternate Worksheet for Form 8615, Line 1 A. Myfreetaxes 2014 Enter the amount from the child's Form 1040, line 22, or Form 1040NR, line 23   B. Myfreetaxes 2014 Enter the total of any net loss  from self-employment, any net operating loss deduction, any foreign earned income exclusion, and any foreign housing exclusion from the child's Form 1040 or Form 1040NR. Myfreetaxes 2014 Enter this total as a positive number (greater than zero)   C. Myfreetaxes 2014 Add line A and line B and  enter the total   D. Myfreetaxes 2014 Enter the child's earned income plus any amount from the child's Form 1040, line 30, or the child's Form 1040NR, line 30     Generally, the child's earned income is the total of the amounts reported on Form 1040, lines 7, 12, and 18 (if line 12 or 18 is a loss, use zero) or Form 1040NR, lines 8, 13, and 19 (if line 13 or 19 is a loss, use zero)   E. Myfreetaxes 2014 Subtract line D from line C. Myfreetaxes 2014 Enter the result here and on Form 8615, line 1   Unearned income defined. Myfreetaxes 2014   Unearned income is generally all income other than salaries, wages, and other amounts received as pay for work actually performed. Myfreetaxes 2014 It includes taxable interest, dividends, capital gains (including capital gain distributions), the taxable part of social security and pension payments, certain distributions from trusts, and unemployment compensation. Myfreetaxes 2014 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). Myfreetaxes 2014 Nontaxable income. Myfreetaxes 2014   For this purpose, unearned income includes only amounts the child must include in gross income. Myfreetaxes 2014 Nontaxable unearned income, such as tax-exempt interest and the nontaxable part of social security and pension payments, is not included. Myfreetaxes 2014 Capital loss. Myfreetaxes 2014   A child's capital losses are taken into account in figuring the child's unearned income. Myfreetaxes 2014 Capital losses are first applied against capital gains. Myfreetaxes 2014 If the capital losses are more than the capital gains, the difference (up to $3,000) is subtracted from the child's interest, dividends, and other unearned income. Myfreetaxes 2014 Any difference over $3,000 is carried to the next year. Myfreetaxes 2014 Income from property received as a gift. Myfreetaxes 2014   A child's unearned income includes all income produced by property belonging to the child. Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014   A child's unearned income includes income produced by property given as a gift to the child. Myfreetaxes 2014 This includes gifts to the child from grandparents or any other person and gifts made under the Uniform Gift to Minors Act. Myfreetaxes 2014 Example. Myfreetaxes 2014 Amanda Black, age 13, received the following income. Myfreetaxes 2014 Dividends—$800 Wages—$2,100 Taxable interest—$1,200 Tax-exempt interest—$100 Capital gains—$300 Capital losses—($200) The dividends were qualified dividends on stock given to her by her grandparents. Myfreetaxes 2014 Amanda's unearned income is $2,100. Myfreetaxes 2014 This is the total of the dividends ($800), taxable interest ($1,200), and capital gains reduced by capital losses ($300 − $200 = $100). Myfreetaxes 2014 Her wages are earned (not unearned) income because they are received for work actually performed. Myfreetaxes 2014 Her tax-exempt interest is not included because it is nontaxable. Myfreetaxes 2014 Trust income. Myfreetaxes 2014   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. Myfreetaxes 2014   However, taxable distributions from a qualified disability trust are considered earned income for the purposes of completing Form 8615. Myfreetaxes 2014 See the Form 8615 instructions for details. Myfreetaxes 2014 Adjustment to income. Myfreetaxes 2014   In figuring the amount to enter on line 1, the child's unearned income is reduced by any penalty on the early withdrawal of savings. Myfreetaxes 2014 Line 2 (Deductions) If the child does not itemize deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040 or Form 1040NR), enter $2,000 on line 2. Myfreetaxes 2014 If the child itemizes 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 (or Schedule A (Form 1040NR), line 15), that are directly connected with the production of the unearned income entered on line 1, or $2,000. Myfreetaxes 2014 Directly connected. Myfreetaxes 2014   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. Myfreetaxes 2014 These expenses include custodian fees and service charges, service fees to collect taxable interest and dividends, and certain investment counsel fees. Myfreetaxes 2014    These expenses are added to certain other miscellaneous itemized deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). Myfreetaxes 2014 Only the amount greater than 2% of the child's adjusted gross income can be deducted. Myfreetaxes 2014 See Publication 529, Miscellaneous Deductions, for more information. Myfreetaxes 2014 Example 1. Myfreetaxes 2014 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%-of-adjusted-gross-income limit) that are directly connected with his unearned income. Myfreetaxes 2014 His adjusted gross income is $8,000, which is entered on Form 1040, line 38, and on Form 8615, line 1. Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 Example 2. Myfreetaxes 2014 Eleanor, age 8, has unearned income of $16,000 and an early withdrawal penalty of $100. Myfreetaxes 2014 She has no other income. Myfreetaxes 2014 She has itemized deductions of $1,050 (net of the 2%-of-adjusted-gross-income limit) that are directly connected with the production of her unearned income. Myfreetaxes 2014 Her adjusted gross income, entered on line 1, is $15,900 ($16,000 − $100). Myfreetaxes 2014 The amount on line 2 is $2,050. Myfreetaxes 2014 This is the larger of: $1,000 plus the $1,050 of directly connected itemized deductions, or $2,000. Myfreetaxes 2014 Line 3 Subtract line 2 from line 1 and enter the result on this line. Myfreetaxes 2014 If zero or less, do not complete the rest of the form. Myfreetaxes 2014 However, you must still attach Form 8615 to the child's tax return. Myfreetaxes 2014 Figure the tax on the child's taxable income in the normal manner. Myfreetaxes 2014 Line 4 (Child's Taxable Income) Enter on line 4 the child's taxable income from Form 1040, line 43; Form 1040A, line 27; or Form 1040NR, line 41. Myfreetaxes 2014 Child files Form 2555 or 2555-EZ. Myfreetaxes 2014   If the child files Form 2555 or 2555-EZ to claim the foreign earned income exclusion, housing exclusion, or housing deduction, the Foreign Earned Income Tax Worksheet (in the Form 1040 instructions) is used to figure the child's tax. Myfreetaxes 2014 Enter the amount from line 3 of the Foreign Earned Income Tax Worksheet as the child's taxable income on Form 8615, line 4. Myfreetaxes 2014 Line 5 (Net Unearned Income) A child's net unearned income cannot be more than his or her taxable income. Myfreetaxes 2014 Enter on Form 8615, line 5, the smaller of line 3 or line 4. Myfreetaxes 2014 This is the child's net unearned income. Myfreetaxes 2014 If zero or less, do not complete the rest of the form. Myfreetaxes 2014 However, you must still attach Form 8615 to the child's tax return. Myfreetaxes 2014 Figure the tax on the child's taxable income in the normal manner. Myfreetaxes 2014 Step 2. Myfreetaxes 2014 Figuring a 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 For example, do not refigure the medical expense deduction. Myfreetaxes 2014 Figure the tentative tax on Form 8615, lines 6 through 13. Myfreetaxes 2014 Line 6 (Parent's Taxable Income) Enter on line 6 the amount from the parent's Form 1040, line 43; Form 1040A, line 27; Form 1040EZ, line 6; Form 1040NR, line 41; or Form 1040NR-EZ, line 14. Myfreetaxes 2014 If the parent's taxable income is zero or less, enter zero on line 6. Myfreetaxes 2014 Parent files Form 2555 or 2555-EZ. Myfreetaxes 2014   If the parent files Form 2555 or 2555-EZ to claim the foreign earned income exclusion, housing exclusion, or housing deduction, the Foreign Earned Income Tax Worksheet in the Form 1040 instructions is used to figure the parent's tax. Myfreetaxes 2014 Enter the amount from line 3 of the Foreign Earned Income Tax Worksheet as the parent's taxable income, on line 6 of Form 8615. Myfreetaxes 2014 Line 7 (Net Unearned Income of Other Children) 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 Do not include the amount from line 5 of the Form 8615 being completed. Myfreetaxes 2014 (The term “other child” means any other child whose Form 8615 uses the tax information of the parent identified on Lines A and B of Form 8615. Myfreetaxes 2014 ) Example. Myfreetaxes 2014 Paul and Jane Persimmon have three children, Sharon, Jerry, and Mike, who must attach Form 8615 to their tax returns. Myfreetaxes 2014 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. Myfreetaxes 2014 Line 7 of Jerry's Form 8615 will show $1,800 ($800 + $1,000). Myfreetaxes 2014 Line 7 of Mike's Form 8615 will show $1,400 ($800 + $600). Myfreetaxes 2014 Other children's information not available. Myfreetaxes 2014   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. Myfreetaxes 2014 Estimates and extensions are discussed earlier under Providing Parental Information (Form 8615, Lines A–C) . Myfreetaxes 2014 Line 8 (Parent's Taxable Income Plus Children's Net Unearned Income) Enter on this line the total of lines 5, 6, and 7. Myfreetaxes 2014 You must determine the amount of net capital gain and qualified dividends included on this line before completing Form 8615, line 9. Myfreetaxes 2014 Net capital gain. Myfreetaxes 2014   Net capital gain is the smaller of the gain, if any, on Schedule D (Form 1040), line 15, or the gain, if any, on Schedule D, line 16. Myfreetaxes 2014 If Schedule D is not required, it is the amount on Form 1040, line 13; Form 1040A, line 10; or Form 1040NR, line 14. Myfreetaxes 2014 Qualified dividends. Myfreetaxes 2014   Qualified dividends are those dividends reported on line 9b of Form 1040 or Form 1040A, or line 10b of Form 1040NR. Myfreetaxes 2014 Net capital gain and qualified dividends on line 8. Myfreetaxes 2014   If neither the child, nor the parent, nor any other child has net capital gain, the net capital gain on line 8 is zero. Myfreetaxes 2014   If neither the child, nor the parent, nor any other child has qualified dividends, the amount of qualified dividends on line 8 is zero. Myfreetaxes 2014   If the child, parent, or any other child has net capital gain, figure the amount of net capital gain included on line 8 by adding together the net capital gain amounts included on lines 5, 6, and 7 of Form 8615. Myfreetaxes 2014   If the child, parent, or any other child has qualified dividends, figure the amount of qualified dividends included on line 8 by adding together the qualified dividend amounts included on lines 5, 6, and 7. Myfreetaxes 2014   Use the instructions for Form 8615, line 8, including the appropriate Line 5 Worksheet, to find these amounts. Myfreetaxes 2014 See the instructions for Form 8615 for more details. Myfreetaxes 2014 Note. Myfreetaxes 2014 The amount of any net capital gain or qualified dividends is not separately reported on line 8. Myfreetaxes 2014 It is  needed, however, when figuring the tax on line 9. Myfreetaxes 2014 Line 9 (Tax on Parent's Taxable Income Plus Children's Net Unearned Income) Figure the tax on the amount on line 8 using the Tax Table, the Tax Computation Worksheet, the Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet (in the Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040NR instructions), the Schedule D Tax Worksheet (in the Schedule D instructions), or Schedule J (Form 1040), as follows. Myfreetaxes 2014 If line 8 does not include any net capital gain or qualified dividends, use the Tax Table or Tax Computation Worksheet to figure this tax. Myfreetaxes 2014 But if Schedule J, Income Averaging for Farmers and Fishermen, is used to figure the tax on the parent's return, use it to figure this tax. Myfreetaxes 2014 If line 8 includes any net capital gain or qualified dividends, use the Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet to figure this tax. Myfreetaxes 2014 For details, see the instructions for Form 8615, line 9. Myfreetaxes 2014 However, if the child, parent, or any other child has 28% rate gain or unrecaptured section 1250 gain, use the Schedule D Tax Worksheet. Myfreetaxes 2014 But if Schedule J is used to figure the tax on the parent's return, use it to figure this tax. Myfreetaxes 2014 Child files Form 2555 or 2555-EZ. Myfreetaxes 2014   If line 8 includes any net capital gain or qualified dividends and the child, or any other child filing Form 8615, also files Form 2555 or 2555-EZ, use Using the Schedule D Tax Worksheet for line 9 tax, next, to figure the line 9 tax. Myfreetaxes 2014 Using the Schedule D Tax Worksheet for line 9 tax. Myfreetaxes 2014    Use the Schedule D Tax Worksheet (in the Schedule D instructions) to figure the line 9 tax on Form 8615 if the child, parent, or any other child has unrecaptured section 1250 gain or 28% rate gain. Myfreetaxes 2014 If you must use the Schedule D Tax Worksheet, first complete any Schedule D and any actual Schedule D Tax Worksheet required for the child, parent, or any other child. Myfreetaxes 2014 Then figure the line 9 tax using another Schedule D Tax Worksheet. Myfreetaxes 2014 (Do not attach this Schedule D Tax Worksheet to the child's return. Myfreetaxes 2014 )   Complete this Schedule D Tax Worksheet as follows. Myfreetaxes 2014 On line 1, enter the amount from Form 8615, line 8. Myfreetaxes 2014 On line 2, enter the qualified dividends included on Form 8615, line 8. Myfreetaxes 2014 (See the earlier discussion for line 8. Myfreetaxes 2014 ) On line 3, enter the total of the amounts, if any, on line 4g of all Forms 4952 filed by the child, parent, or any other child. Myfreetaxes 2014 On line 4, enter the total of the amounts, if any, on line 4e of all Forms 4952 filed by the child, parent, or any other child. Myfreetaxes 2014 If applicable, include instead the smaller amount entered on the dotted line next to line 4e. Myfreetaxes 2014 On lines 5 and 6, follow the worksheet instructions. Myfreetaxes 2014 On line 7, enter the net capital gain included on Form 8615, line 8. Myfreetaxes 2014 (See the earlier discussion for line 8. Myfreetaxes 2014 ) On lines 8 through 10, follow the worksheet instructions. Myfreetaxes 2014 On line 11, enter zero if neither the child, nor the parent, nor any other child has unrecaptured section 1250 gain (Schedule D, line 19) or 28% rate gain (Schedule D, line 18). Myfreetaxes 2014 Otherwise, enter the amount of unrecaptured section 1250 gain and 28% rate gain included in the net capital gain on line 8 of Form 8615. Myfreetaxes 2014 Figure these amounts as explained later under Figuring unrecaptured section 1250 gain (line 11) and Figuring 28% rate gain (line 11). Myfreetaxes 2014 If the Foreign Earned Income Tax Worksheet was used to figure the parent's tax or the tax of any child, go to step 10 below. Myfreetaxes 2014 Otherwise, skip steps 10, 11, and 12 below, and go to step 13. Myfreetaxes 2014 Determine whether there is a line 8 capital gain excess as follows. Myfreetaxes 2014 Add the amounts on line 2 of all Foreign Earned Income Tax Worksheets completed by the parent or any child for whom Form 8615 is filed. Myfreetaxes 2014 (But for each child do not add more than the excess, if any, of the amount on line 5 of the child's Form 8615 over the child's taxable income on Form 1040, line 43; Form 1040A, line 27; or Form 1040NR, line 41. Myfreetaxes 2014 ) Subtract (a) from the amount on line 1 of this Schedule D Tax Worksheet. Myfreetaxes 2014 Subtract (b) from the amount on line 10 of this Schedule D Tax Worksheet. Myfreetaxes 2014 If the result is more than zero, that amount is the line 8 capital gain excess. Myfreetaxes 2014 If the result is zero or less, there is no line 8 capital gain excess. Myfreetaxes 2014 If there is no line 8 capital gain excess, skip step 12 below and go to step 13. Myfreetaxes 2014 If there is a line 8 capital gain excess, complete a second Schedule D Tax Worksheet as instructed above and in step 13, but in its entirety and with the following additional modifications. Myfreetaxes 2014 (These modifications are to be made only for purposes of filling out this additional Schedule D Tax Worksheet. Myfreetaxes 2014 ) Reduce the amount you would otherwise enter on line 9 (but not below zero) by the line 8 capital gain excess.
