Tax correction form citizen or resident alien, and either of the following applies. Tax correction form You were age 65 or older at the end of 2013. Tax correction form You were under age 65 at the end of 2013 and all three of the following statements are true. Tax correction form You retired on permanent and total disability (explained later). Tax correction form You received taxable disability income for 2013. Tax correction form On January 1, 2013, you had not reached mandatory retirement age (defined later under Disability income ). Tax correction form Age 65. Tax correction form   You are considered to be age 65 on the day before your 65th birthday. Tax correction form Therefore, if you were born on January 1, 1949, you are considered to be age 65 at the end of 2013. Tax correction form U. Tax correction form S. Tax correction form Citizen or Resident Alien You must be a U. Tax correction form S. Tax correction form citizen or resident alien (or be treated as a resident alien) to take the credit. Tax correction form Generally, you cannot take the credit if you were a nonresident alien at any time during the tax year. Tax correction form Exceptions. Tax correction form   You may be able to take the credit if you are a nonresident alien who is married to a U. Tax correction form S. Tax correction form citizen or resident alien at the end of the tax year and you and your spouse choose to treat you as a U. Tax correction form S. Tax correction form resident alien. Tax correction form If you make that choice, both you and your spouse are taxed on your worldwide incomes. Tax correction form If you were a nonresident alien at the beginning of the year and a resident alien at the end of the year, and you were married to a U. Tax correction form S. Tax correction form citizen or resident alien at the end of the year, you may be able to choose to be treated as a U. Tax correction form S. Tax correction form resident alien for the entire year. Tax correction form In that case, you may be allowed to take the credit. Tax correction form For information on these choices, see chapter 1 of Publication 519, U. Tax correction form S. Tax correction form Tax Guide for Aliens. Tax correction form Married Persons Generally, if you are married at the end of the tax year, you and your spouse must file a joint return to take the credit. Tax correction form However, if you and your spouse did not live in the same household at any time during the tax year, you can file either a joint return or separate returns and still take the credit. Tax correction form Head of household. Tax correction form   You can file as head of household and qualify to take the credit, even if your spouse lived with you during the first 6 months of the year, if you meet certain tests. Tax correction form See Head of Household in chapter 2 for the tests you must meet. Tax correction form Under Age 65 If you are under age 65 at the end of 2013, you can qualify for the credit only if you are retired on permanent and total disability (discussed next) and have taxable disability income (discussed later under Disability income ). Tax correction form You are retired on permanent and total disability if: You were permanently and totally disabled when you retired, and You retired on disability before the close of the tax year. Tax correction form Even if you do not retire formally, you may be considered retired on disability when you have stopped working because of your disability. Tax correction form If you retired on disability before 1977, and were not permanently and totally disabled at the time, you can qualify for the credit if you were permanently and totally disabled on January 1, 1976, or January 1, 1977. Tax correction form Permanent and total disability. Tax correction form    You are permanently and totally disabled if you cannot engage in any substantial gainful activity because of your physical or mental condition. Tax correction form A qualified physician must certify that the condition has lasted or can be expected to last continuously for 12 months or more, or that the condition can be expected to result in death. Tax correction form See Physician's statement , later. Tax correction form Substantial gainful activity. Tax correction form   Substantial gainful activity is the performance of significant duties over a reasonable period of time while working for pay or profit, or in work generally done for pay or profit. Tax correction form Full-time work (or part-time work done at your employer's convenience) in a competitive work situation for at least the minimum wage conclusively shows that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Tax correction form   Substantial gainful activity is not work you do to take care of yourself or your home. Tax correction form It is not unpaid work on hobbies, institutional therapy or training, school attendance, clubs, social programs, and similar activities. Tax correction form However, doing this kind of work may show that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Tax correction form    The fact that you have not worked for some time is not, of itself, conclusive evidence that you cannot engage in substantial gainful activity. Tax correction form Sheltered employment. Tax correction form   Certain work offered at qualified locations to physically or mentally impaired persons is considered sheltered employment. Tax correction form These qualified locations are in sheltered workshops, hospitals, and similar institutions, homebound programs, and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) sponsored homes. Tax correction form   Compared to commercial employment, pay is lower for sheltered employment. Tax correction form Therefore, one usually does not look for sheltered employment if he or she can get other employment. Tax correction form The fact that one has accepted sheltered employment is not proof of the person's ability to engage in substantial gainful activity. Tax correction form Physician's statement. Tax correction form   If you are under age 65, you must have your physician complete a statement certifying that you were permanently and totally disabled on the date you retired. Tax correction form You can use the statement in the Instructions for Schedule R. Tax correction form    Figure 33-A. Tax correction form Are You a Qualified Individual? This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. Tax correction form Please click the link to view the image. Tax correction form Figure 33-A Are You a Qualified Individual?   You do not have to file this statement with your Form 1040 or Form 1040A, but you must keep it for your records. Tax correction form Veterans. Tax correction form   If the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) certifies that you are permanently and totally disabled, you can substitute VA Form 21-0172, Certification of Permanent and Total Disability, for the physician's statement you are required to keep. Tax correction form VA Form 21-0172 must be signed by a person authorized by the VA to do so. Tax correction form You can get this form from your local VA regional office. Tax correction form Physician's statement obtained in earlier year. Tax correction form   If you got a physician's statement in an earlier year and, due to your continued disabled condition, you were unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity during 2013, you may not need to get another physician's statement for 2013. Tax correction form For a detailed explanation of the conditions you must meet, see the instructions for Schedule R, Part II. Tax correction form If you meet the required conditions, check the box on your Schedule R, Part II, line 2. Tax correction form   If you checked box 4, 5, or 6 in Part I of Schedule R, enter in the space above the box on line 2 in Part II the first name(s) of the spouse(s) for whom the box is checked. Tax correction form Table 33-1. Tax correction form Income Limits IF your filing status is . Tax correction form . Tax correction form . Tax correction form THEN, even if you qualify (see Figure 33-A ), you CANNOT take the credit if. Tax correction form . Tax correction form . Tax correction form   Your adjusted gross income (AGI)* is equal to or more than. Tax correction form . Tax correction form . Tax correction form     OR the total of your nontaxable social security and other nontaxable pension(s), annuities, or disability income is equal to or more than. Tax correction form . Tax correction form . Tax correction form   single, head of household, or qualifying widow(er) with dependent child   $17,500     $5,000   married filing jointly and only one spouse qualifies in Figure 33-A   $20,000     $5,000   married filing jointly and both spouses qualify in Figure 33-A   $25,000     $7,500   married filing separately and you lived apart from your spouse for all of 2013   $12,500     $3,750   * AGI is the amount on Form 1040A, line 22, or Form 1040, line 38. Tax correction form Disability income. Tax correction form   If you are under age 65, you must also have taxable disability income to qualify for the credit. Tax correction form Disability income must meet both of the following requirements. Tax correction form It must be paid under your employer's accident or health plan or pension plan. Tax correction form It must be included in your income as wages (or payments instead of wages) for the time you are absent from work because of permanent and total disability. Tax correction form Payments that are not disability income. Tax correction form   Any payment you receive from a plan that does not provide for disability retirement is not disability income. Tax correction form Any lump-sum payment for accrued annual leave that you receive when you retire on disability is a salary payment and is not disability income. Tax correction form   For purposes of the credit for the elderly or the disabled, disability income does not include amounts you receive after you reach mandatory retirement age. Tax correction form Mandatory retirement age is the age set by your employer at which you would have had to retire, had you not become disabled. Tax correction form Income Limits To determine if you can claim the credit, you must consider two income limits. Tax correction form The first limit is the amount of your adjusted gross income (AGI). Tax correction form The second limit is the amount of nontaxable social security and other nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income you received. Tax correction form The limits are shown in Table 33-1. Tax correction form If your AGI and nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are less than the income limits, you may be able to claim the credit. Tax correction form See How to Claim the Credit , later. Tax correction form If either your AGI or your nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are equal to or more than the income limits, you cannot take the credit. Tax correction form How to Claim the Credit You can figure the credit yourself or the Internal Revenue Service will figure it for you. Tax correction form Credit Figured for You If you choose to have the IRS figure the credit for you, read the following discussion for the form you will file (Form 1040 or 1040A). Tax correction form If you want the IRS to figure your tax, see chapter 30. Tax correction form Form 1040. Tax correction form   If you want the IRS to figure your credit, see Form 1040 Line Entries under Tax Figured by IRS in chapter 30. Tax correction form Form 1040A.
