Taxact 2007 5. Taxact 2007   Credits Table of Contents Credit for the Elderly or the DisabledCan You Take the Credit? Figuring the Credit Child and Dependent Care Credit Earned Income Credit (EIC)Do You Qualify for the Earned Income Credit (EIC)? Figuring the EIC This chapter briefly discusses the credit for the elderly or disabled, the child and dependent care credit, and the earned income credit. Taxact 2007 You may be able to reduce your federal income tax by claiming one or more of these credits. Taxact 2007 Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled This section explains who qualifies for the credit for the elderly or the disabled and how to figure this credit. Taxact 2007 For more information, see Publication 524, Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled. Taxact 2007 You can take the credit only if you file Form 1040 or Form 1040A. Taxact 2007 You cannot take the credit if you file Form 1040EZ or Form 1040NR. Taxact 2007 Can You Take the Credit? You can take the credit for the elderly or the disabled if you meet both of the following requirements. Taxact 2007 You are a qualified individual. Taxact 2007 Your income is not more than certain limits. Taxact 2007  You can use Figure 5-A and Figure 5-B as guides to see if you are eligible for the credit. Taxact 2007   Qualified Individual You are a qualified individual for this credit if you are a U. Taxact 2007 S. Taxact 2007 citizen or resident alien, and either of the following applies. Taxact 2007 You were age 65 or older at the end of 2013. Taxact 2007 You were under age 65 at the end of 2013 and all three of the following statements are true. Taxact 2007 You retired on permanent and total disability (explained later). Taxact 2007 You received taxable disability income for 2013. Taxact 2007 On January 1, 2013, you had not reached mandatory retirement age (defined later under Disability income ). Taxact 2007 Age 65. Taxact 2007 You are considered to be age 65 on the day before your 65th birthday. Taxact 2007 Therefore, you are considered to be age 65 at the end of 2013 if you were born before January 2, 1949. Taxact 2007 Figure 5-A. Taxact 2007 Are You a Qualified Individual? This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. Taxact 2007 Please click the link to view the image. Taxact 2007 Figure 5-A, Are you a qualified individual? U. Taxact 2007 S. Taxact 2007 citizen or resident alien. Taxact 2007   You must be a U. Taxact 2007 S. Taxact 2007 citizen or resident alien (or be treated as a resident alien) to take the credit. Taxact 2007 Generally, you cannot take the credit if you were a nonresident alien at any time during the tax year. Taxact 2007 Exceptions. Taxact 2007   You may be able to take the credit if you are a nonresident alien who is married to a U. Taxact 2007 S. Taxact 2007 citizen or resident alien at the end of the tax year and you and your spouse choose to treat you as a U. Taxact 2007 S. Taxact 2007 resident alien. Taxact 2007 If you make that choice, both you and your spouse are taxed on your worldwide income. Taxact 2007   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. Taxact 2007 S. Taxact 2007 citizen or resident alien at the end of the year, you may be able to choose to be treated as a U. Taxact 2007 S. Taxact 2007 resident alien for the entire year. Taxact 2007 In that case, you may be allowed to take the credit. Taxact 2007   For information on these choices, see chapter 1 of Publication 519, U. Taxact 2007 S. Taxact 2007 Tax Guide for Aliens. Taxact 2007 Married persons. Taxact 2007   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. Taxact 2007 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. Taxact 2007 Head of household. Taxact 2007   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. Taxact 2007 See Publication 524 and Publication 501. Taxact 2007 Under age 65. Taxact 2007   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 and have taxable disability income (discussed later under Disability income ). Taxact 2007 You are considered to be under age 65 at the end of 2013 if you were born after January 1, 1949. Taxact 2007 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 end of the tax year. Taxact 2007   Even if you do not retire formally, you may be considered retired on disability when you have stopped working because of your disability. Taxact 2007 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. Taxact 2007 Permanent and total disability. Taxact 2007   You are permanently and totally disabled if you cannot engage in any substantial gainful activity because of your physical or mental condition. Taxact 2007 A 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. Taxact 2007 See Physician's statement , later. Taxact 2007 Substantial gainful activity. Taxact 2007   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. Taxact 2007   Full-time work (or part-time work done at the 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. Taxact 2007   Substantial gainful activity is not work you do to take care of yourself or your home. Taxact 2007 It is not unpaid work on hobbies, institutional therapy or training, school attendance, clubs, social programs, and similar activities. Taxact 2007 However, doing this kind of work may show that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Taxact 2007    Figure 5-B. Taxact 2007 Income Limits IF your filing status is. Taxact 2007 . Taxact 2007 . Taxact 2007 THEN even if you qualify (see Figure 5-A), you CANNOT take the credit if: Your adjusted gross income (AGI)* is equal to or more than. Taxact 2007 . Taxact 2007 . Taxact 2007 OR the total of your nontaxable social security and other nontaxable pension(s), annuities, or disability income is equal to or more than. Taxact 2007 . Taxact 2007 . Taxact 2007 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 5-A $20,000 $5,000 married filing jointly and both spouses qualify in Figure 5-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      The fact that you have not worked for some time is not, of itself, conclusive evidence that you cannot engage in substantial gainful activity. Taxact 2007 Physician's statement. Taxact 2007   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. Taxact 2007   You do not have to file this statement with your tax return, but you must keep it for your records. Taxact 2007 The Instructions for Schedule R (Form 1040A or 1040) include a statement your physician can complete and that you can keep for your records. Taxact 2007 Veterans. Taxact 2007   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. Taxact 2007 VA Form 21-0172 must be signed by a person authorized by the VA to do so. Taxact 2007 You can get this form from your local VA regional office. Taxact 2007 Physician's statement obtained in earlier year. Taxact 2007   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. Taxact 2007 For a detailed explanation of the conditions you must meet, see the instructions for Schedule R (Form 1040A or 1040), Part II. Taxact 2007 If you meet the required conditions, you must check the box on Schedule R (Form 1040A or 1040), Part II, line 2. Taxact 2007   If you checked Schedule R (Form 1040A or 1040), Part I, box 4, 5, or 6, print in the space above the box in Part II, line 2, the first name(s) of the spouse(s) for whom the box is checked. Taxact 2007 Disability income. Taxact 2007   If you are under age 65, you must also have taxable disability income to qualify for the credit. Taxact 2007   Disability income must meet the following two requirements. Taxact 2007 It must be paid under your employer's accident or health plan or pension plan. Taxact 2007 It must be included in your income as wages (or payments in lieu of wages) for the time you are absent from work because of permanent and total disability. Taxact 2007 Payments that are not disability income. Taxact 2007   Any payment you receive from a plan that does not provide for disability retirement is not disability income. Taxact 2007 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. Taxact 2007   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. Taxact 2007 Mandatory retirement age is the age set by your employer at which you would have had to retire had you not become disabled. Taxact 2007 Figuring the Credit You can figure the credit yourself, or the IRS will figure it for you. Taxact 2007 Figuring the credit yourself. Taxact 2007   If you figure the credit yourself, fill out the front of Schedule R (Form 1040A or 1040). Taxact 2007 Next, fill out Schedule R (Form 1040A or 1040), Part III. Taxact 2007 Credit figured for you. Taxact 2007   If you can take the credit and you want the IRS to figure the credit for you, see Publication 524 or the Instructions for Schedule R (Form 1040A or 1040). Taxact 2007 If you want the IRS to figure your tax, see chapter 30 of Publication 17, Your Federal Income Tax. Taxact 2007 Child and Dependent Care Credit You may be able to claim this credit if you pay someone to care for your dependent who is under age 13 or for your spouse or dependent who is not able to care for himself or herself. Taxact 2007 The credit can be up to 35% of your expenses. Taxact 2007 To qualify, you must pay these expenses so you can work or look for work. Taxact 2007 If you claim this credit, you must include on your return the name and taxpayer identification number (generally the social security number) of each qualifying person for whom care is provided. Taxact 2007 If the correct information is not shown, the credit may be reduced or disallowed. Taxact 2007 You also must show on your return the name, address, and the taxpayer identification number of the person(s) or organization(s) that provided the care. Taxact 2007 For more information, see Publication 503, Child and Dependent Care Expenses. Taxact 2007 Earned Income Credit (EIC) The earned income credit (EIC) is a refundable tax credit for certain people who work and have earned income under $51,567. Taxact 2007 The EIC is available to persons with or without a qualifying child. Taxact 2007 Credit has no effect on certain welfare benefits. Taxact 2007   Any refund you receive because of the EIC cannot be counted as income when determining whether you or anyone else is eligible for benefits or assistance, or how much you or anyone else can receive, under any federal program or under any state or local program financed in whole or in part with federal funds. Taxact 2007 These programs include the following. Taxact 2007 Medicaid and supplemental security income (SSI). Taxact 2007 Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (food stamps). Taxact 2007 Low-income housing. Taxact 2007 Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). Taxact 2007  In addition, when determining eligibility, the refund cannot be counted as a resource for at least 12 months after you receive it. Taxact 2007 Check with your local benefit coordinator to find out if your refund will affect your benefits. Taxact 2007 Do You Qualify for the Earned Income Credit (EIC)? Use Table 5-1 as an initial guide to the rules you must meet in order to qualify for the EIC. Taxact 2007 The specific rules you must meet depend on whether you have a qualifying child. Taxact 2007 If you have a qualifying child, the rules in Parts A, B, and D apply to you. Taxact 2007 If you do not have a qualifying child, the rules in Parts A, C, and D apply to you. Taxact 2007  If, after reading all the rules in each part that applies to you, you think you may qualify for the credit, see Publication 596, Earned Income Credit, for more details about the EIC. Taxact 2007 You can also find information about the EIC in the instructions for Form 1040 (line 64a), Form 1040A (line 38a), or Form 1040EZ (line 8a).

Taxact 2007 Social security number. Taxact 2007   Under Rule 2, you (and your spouse if you are married filing jointly) must have a valid social security number (SSN) issued by the Social Security Administration (SSA). Taxact 2007 Any qualifying child listed on Schedule EIC also must have a valid SSN. Taxact 2007 (See Qualifying child , later, if you have a qualifying child. Taxact 2007 )   If your social security card (or your spouse's if you are married filing jointly) says “Not valid for employment” and your SSN was issued so that you (or your spouse) could get a federally funded benefit, you cannot get the EIC. Taxact 2007 An example of a federally funded benefit is Medicaid. Taxact 2007 Investment income. Taxact 2007   Under Rule 6, you cannot claim the EIC unless your investment income is $3,300 or less. Taxact 2007 If your investment income is more than $3,300, you cannot claim the credit. Taxact 2007 For most people, investment income is the total of the following amounts. Taxact 2007 Taxable interest (line 8a of Form 1040 or 1040A). Taxact 2007 Tax-exempt interest (line 8b of Form 1040 or 1040A). Taxact 2007 Dividend income (line 9a of Form 1040 or 1040A).

Taxact 2007  If you file Form 1040EZ, your investment income is the total of the amount of line 2 and the amount of any tax-exempt interest you wrote to the right of the words “Form 1040EZ” on line 2. Taxact 2007   For more information about investment income, see Publication 596, Earned Income Credit. Taxact 2007 Earned income. Taxact 2007   Under Rule 7, you must have earned income to claim the EIC. Taxact 2007 Under Rule 15, you cannot claim the EIC unless your earned income is less than the applicable limit shown in Table 5-1, Part D. Taxact 2007 Earned income includes all of the following types of income. Taxact 2007 Wages, salaries, tips, and other taxable employee pay. Taxact 2007 Employee pay is earned income only if it is taxable. Taxact 2007 Nontaxable employee pay, such as certain dependent care benefits and adoption benefits, is not earned income. Taxact 2007 But there is an exception for nontaxable combat pay, which you can choose to include in earned income. Taxact 2007 Net earnings from self-employment. Taxact 2007 Gross income received as a statutory employee. Taxact 2007 Gross income defined. Taxact 2007   Gross income means all income you received in the form of money, goods, property, and services that is not exempt from tax, including any income from sources outside the United States or from the sale of your main home (even if you can exclude part or all of it). Taxact 2007 Do not include any social security benefits unless (a) you are married filing a separate tax return and you lived with your spouse at any time in 2013, or (b) one-half of your social security benefits plus your other gross income and any tax-exempt interest is more than $25,000 ($32,000 if married filing jointly). Taxact 2007 If (a) or (b) applies, see the instructions for Form 1040, lines 20a and 20b to figure the taxable part of social security benefits you must include in gross income. Taxact 2007 Self-employed persons. Taxact 2007   If you are self-employed and your net earnings are $400 or more, be sure to correctly fill out Schedule SE (Form 1040), Self-Employment Tax, and pay the proper amount of self-employment tax. Taxact 2007 If you do not, you may not get all the credit to which you are entitled. Taxact 2007 Disability benefits. Taxact 2007   If you retired on disability, taxable benefits you receive under your employer's disability retirement plan are considered earned income until you reach minimum retirement age. Taxact 2007 Minimum retirement age generally is the earliest age at which you could have received a pension or annuity if you were not disabled. Taxact 2007 Beginning on the day after you reach minimum retirement age, payments you receive are taxable as a pension and are not considered earned income. Taxact 2007   Payments you received from a disability insurance policy that you paid the premiums for are not earned income. Taxact 2007 It does not matter whether you have reached minimum retirement age. Taxact 2007 If this policy is through your employer, the amount may be shown in box 12 of your Form W-2 with code J. Taxact 2007 Income that is not earned income. Taxact 2007   Examples of items that are not earned income under Rule 7 include interest and dividends, pensions and annuities, social security and railroad retirement benefits (including disability benefits — except for payments covered under Disability benefits earlier), alimony and child support, welfare benefits, workers' compensation benefits, unemployment compensation (insurance), nontaxable foster care payments, and veterans' benefits, including VA rehabilitation payments. Taxact 2007 Do not include any of these items in your earned income. Taxact 2007 Workfare payments. Taxact 2007   Nontaxable workfare payments are not earned income for the EIC. Taxact 2007 These are cash payments certain people receive from a state or local agency that administers public assistance programs funded under the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program in return for certain work activities such as (1) work experience activities (including remodeling or repairing public housing) if sufficient private sector employment is not available, or (2) community service program activities. Taxact 2007 Qualifying child. Taxact 2007   Under Rule 8, your child is a qualifying child if your child meets four tests. Taxact 2007 The four tests are: Relationship, Age, Residency, and Joint return. Taxact 2007   The four tests are illustrated in Figure 5-C. Taxact 2007 See Publication 596 for more information about each test. Taxact 2007 Figure 5-C. Taxact 2007 Tests for Qualifying Child A qualifying child for the EIC is a child who is your.
