Tax forms 1040ez 2014 However, school attendance exclusively at night is not considered full-time attendance. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 School. Tax forms 1040ez 2014   The term “school” includes elementary schools, middle schools, junior and senior high schools, colleges, universities, and technical, trade, and mechanical schools. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 It does not include on-the-job training courses, correspondence schools, and schools offering courses only through the Internet. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Significant Connection One way in which you can meet the presence test is to have no significant connection to the United States during the tax year. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 This section looks at the factors that determine if a significant connection exists. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 You are treated as having a significant connection to the United States if you: Have a permanent home in the United States, Are currently registered to vote in any political subdivision of the United States, or Have a spouse or child (see item 2c under Days of presence in a possession , earlier) who is under age 18 whose main home is in the United States, other than: A child who is in the United States because he or she is the child of divorced or legally separated parents and is living with a custodial parent under a custodial decree or multiple support agreement, or A child who is in the United States as a student. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 For the purpose of determining if you have a significant connection to the United States, the term “spouse” does not include a spouse from whom you are legally separated under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Permanent home. Tax forms 1040ez 2014   A permanent home generally includes an accommodation such as a house, an apartment, or a furnished room that is either owned or rented by you or your spouse. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 The dwelling unit must be available at all times, continuously, not only for short stays. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Exception for rental property. Tax forms 1040ez 2014   If you or your spouse own the dwelling unit and at any time during the tax year it is rented to someone else at fair rental value, it will be considered your permanent home only if you or your spouse use that property for personal purposes for more than the greater of: 14 days, or 10% of the number of days during that tax year that the property is rented to others at a fair rental value. Tax forms 1040ez 2014   You are treated as using rental property for personal purposes on any day the property is not being rented to someone else at fair rental value for the entire day. Tax forms 1040ez 2014   A day of personal use of a dwelling unit is also any day that the unit is used by any of the following persons. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 You or any other person who has an interest in it, unless you rent it to another owner as his or her main home under a shared equity financing agreement. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 A member of your family or a member of the family of any other person who has an interest in it, unless the family member uses the dwelling unit as his or her main home and pays a fair rental price. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Family includes only brothers and sisters, half-brothers and half-sisters, spouses, ancestors (parents, grandparents, etc. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 ), and lineal descendants (children, grandchildren, etc. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 ). Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Anyone under an arrangement that lets you use some other dwelling unit. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Anyone at less than a fair rental price. Tax forms 1040ez 2014   However, any day you spend working substantially full time repairing and maintaining (not improving) your property is not counted as a day of personal use. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Whether your property is used mainly for this purpose is determined in light of all the facts and circumstances, such as: The amount of time you devote to repair and maintenance work, How often during the tax year you perform repair and maintenance work on this property, and The presence and activities of companions. Tax forms 1040ez 2014   See Publication 527, Residential Rental Property, for more information about personal use of a dwelling unit. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Example—significant connection. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Ann Green, a U. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 S. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 citizen, is a sales representative for a company based in Guam. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Ann lives with her spouse and young children in their house in Guam, where she is also registered to vote. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Her business travel requires her to spend 120 days in the United States and another 120 days in foreign countries. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 When traveling on business, Ann generally stays at hotels but sometimes stays with her brother, who lives in the United States. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Ann's stays are always of short duration and she asks her brother's permission to stay with him. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Her brother's house is not her permanent home, nor does she have any other accommodations in the United States that would be considered her permanent home. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Ann satisfies the presence test because she has no significant connection to the United States. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Example—presence test. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Eric and Wanda Brown live for part of the year in a condominium, which they own, in the CNMI. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 They also own a house in Maine where they live for 120 days every year to be near their grown children and grandchildren. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 The Browns are retired and their only income is from pension payments, dividends, interest, and social security benefits. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 In 2013, they spent only 175 days in the CNMI because of a 70-day vacation to Europe and Asia. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Thus, in 2013, the Browns were not present in the CNMI for at least 183 days, were present in the United States for more than 90 days, and had a significant connection to the United States because of their permanent home. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 However, the Browns still satisfied the presence test with respect to the CNMI because they had no earned income in the United States and were physically present for more days in the CNMI than in the United States. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Tax Home You will have met the tax home test if you did not have a tax home outside the relevant possession during any part of the tax year. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Your tax home is your regular or main place of business, employment, or post of duty regardless of where you maintain your family home. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 If you do not have a regular or main place of business because of the nature of your work, then your tax home is the place where you regularly live. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 If you do not fit either of these categories, you are considered an itinerant and your tax home is wherever you work. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Exceptions There are some special rules regarding tax home that provide exceptions to the general rule stated above. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Students and Government Officials Disregard the following days when determining whether you have a tax home outside the relevant possession. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Days you were temporarily in the United States as a student (see Student under Days of Presence in the United States or Relevant Possession, earlier). Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Days you were in the United States serving as an elected representative of the relevant possession, or serving full time as an elected or appointed official or employee of the government of that possession (or any of its political subdivisions). Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Seafarers You will not be considered to have a tax home outside the relevant possession solely because you are employed on a ship or other seafaring vessel that is predominantly used in local and international waters. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 For this purpose, a vessel is considered to be predominantly used in local and international waters if, during the tax year, the total amount of time it is used in international waters and in the waters within 3 miles of the relevant possession exceeds the total amount of time it is used in the territorial waters of the United States, another possession, or any foreign country. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Example. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 In 2013, Sean Silverman, a U. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 S. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 citizen, was employed by a fishery and spent 250 days at sea on a fishing vessel. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 When not at sea, Sean lived with his spouse at a house they own in American Samoa. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 The fishing vessel on which Sean works departs and arrives at various ports in American Samoa, other possessions, and foreign countries, but was in international or American Samoa's local waters for 225 days. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 For purposes of determining bona fide residency of American Samoa, Sean will not be considered to have a tax home outside that possession solely because of his employment on board the fishing vessel. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Year of Move If you are moving to or from a possession during the year, you may still be able to meet the tax home test for that year. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 See Special Rules in the Year of a Move , later in this chapter. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Closer Connection You will have met the closer connection test if, during any part of the tax year, you do not have a closer connection to the United States or a foreign country than to the relevant U. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 S. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 possession. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 You will be considered to have a closer connection to a possession than to the United States or to a foreign country if you have maintained more significant contacts with the possession(s) than with the United States or foreign country. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 In determining if you have maintained more significant contacts with the relevant possession, the facts and circumstances to be considered include, but are not limited to, the following. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 The location of your permanent home. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 The location of your family. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 The location of personal belongings, such as automobiles, furniture, clothing, and jewelry owned by you and your family. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 The location of social, political, cultural, professional, or religious organizations with which you have a current relationship. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 The location where you conduct your routine personal banking activities. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 The location where you conduct business activities (other than those that go into determining your tax home). Tax forms 1040ez 2014 The location of the jurisdiction in which you hold a driver's license. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 The location of the jurisdiction in which you vote. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 The location of charitable organizations to which you contribute. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 The country of residence you designate on forms and documents. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 The types of official forms and documents you file, such as Form W-8BEN, Certificate of Foreign Status of Beneficial Owner for United States Tax Withholding and Reporting (Individuals), or Form W-9, Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Your connections to the relevant possession will be compared to the total of your connections with the United States and foreign countries. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Your answers to the questions on Form 8898, Part III, will help establish the jurisdiction to which you have a closer connection. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Example—closer connection to the United States. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 Marcos Reyes, a U. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 S. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 citizen, moved to Puerto Rico in 2013 to start an investment consulting and venture capital business. Tax forms 1040ez 2014 His spouse and two teenage children remained in California to allow the children to complete high school.
