Turbo tax military discount citizen or resident alien, and either of the following applies. Turbo tax military discount You were age 65 or older at the end of 2013. Turbo tax military discount You were under age 65 at the end of 2013 and all three of the following statements are true. Turbo tax military discount You retired on permanent and total disability (explained later). Turbo tax military discount You received taxable disability income for 2013. Turbo tax military discount On January 1, 2013, you had not reached mandatory retirement age (defined later under Disability income ). Turbo tax military discount Age 65. Turbo tax military discount   You are considered to be age 65 on the day before your 65th birthday. Turbo tax military discount As a result, if you were born on January 1, 1949, you are considered to be age 65 at the end of 2013. Turbo tax military discount U. Turbo tax military discount S. Turbo tax military discount Citizen or Resident Alien You must be a U. Turbo tax military discount S. Turbo tax military discount citizen or resident alien (or be treated as a resident alien) to take the credit. Turbo tax military discount Generally, you cannot take the credit if you were a nonresident alien at any time during the tax year. Turbo tax military discount Exceptions. Turbo tax military discount   You may be able to take the credit if you are a nonresident alien who is married to a U. Turbo tax military discount S. Turbo tax military discount citizen or resident alien at the end of the tax year and you and your spouse choose to treat you as a U. Turbo tax military discount S. Turbo tax military discount resident alien. Turbo tax military discount If you make that choice, both you and your spouse are taxed on your worldwide incomes. Turbo tax military discount   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. Turbo tax military discount S. Turbo tax military discount citizen or resident alien at the end of the year, you may be able to choose to be treated as a U. Turbo tax military discount S. Turbo tax military discount resident alien for the entire year. Turbo tax military discount In that case, you may be allowed to take the credit. Turbo tax military discount   For information on these choices, see chapter 1 of Publication 519, U. Turbo tax military discount S. Turbo tax military discount Tax Guide for Aliens. Turbo tax military discount 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. Turbo tax military discount 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. Turbo tax military discount Head of household. Turbo tax military discount   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 all the following tests. Turbo tax military discount You file a separate return. Turbo tax military discount You paid more than half the cost of keeping up your home during the tax year. Turbo tax military discount Your spouse did not live in your home at any time during the last 6 months of the tax year and the absence was not temporary. Turbo tax military discount (See Temporary absences under Head of Household in Publication 501. Turbo tax military discount ) Your home was the main home of your child, stepchild, or an eligible foster child for more than half the year. Turbo tax military discount An eligible foster child is a child placed with you by an authorized placement agency or by judgment, decree, or other order of any court of competent jurisdiction. Turbo tax military discount You can claim an exemption for that child, or you cannot claim the exemption only because the noncustodial parent can claim the child using the rules for children of divorced or separated parents. Turbo tax military discount For more information, see Publication 501, Exemptions, Standard Deduction, and Filing Information. Turbo tax military discount Figure A. Turbo tax military discount Are You a Qualified Individual? Please click here for the text description of the image. Turbo tax military discount figure a 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 ). Turbo tax military discount 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. Turbo tax military discount Even if you do not retire formally, you may be considered retired on disability when you have stopped working because of your disability. Turbo tax military discount 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. Turbo tax military discount You are considered to be under age 65 at the end of 2013 if you were born after January 1, 1949. Turbo tax military discount Permanent and total disability. Turbo tax military discount    You are permanently and totally disabled if you cannot engage in any substantial gainful activity because of your physical or mental condition. Turbo tax military discount 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. Turbo tax military discount See Physician's statement , later. Turbo tax military discount Substantial gainful activity. Turbo tax military discount   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. Turbo tax military discount 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. Turbo tax military discount   Substantial gainful activity is not work you do to take care of yourself or your home. Turbo tax military discount It is not unpaid work on hobbies, institutional therapy or training, school attendance, clubs, social programs, and similar activities. Turbo tax military discount However, doing this kind of work may show that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Turbo tax military discount    The fact that you have not worked for some time is not, of itself, conclusive evidence that you cannot engage in substantial gainful activity. Turbo tax military discount   The following examples illustrate the tests of substantial gainful activity. Turbo tax military discount Example 1. Turbo tax military discount Trisha, a sales clerk, retired on disability. Turbo tax military discount She is 53 years old and now works as a full-time babysitter for the minimum wage. Turbo tax military discount Even though Trisha is doing different work, she is able to do the duties of her new job in a full-time competitive work situation for the minimum wage. Turbo tax military discount She cannot take the credit because she is able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Turbo tax military discount Example 2. Turbo tax military discount Tom, a bookkeeper, retired on disability. Turbo tax military discount He is 59 years old and now drives a truck for a charitable organization. Turbo tax military discount He sets his own hours and is not paid. Turbo tax military discount Duties of this nature generally are performed for pay or profit. Turbo tax military discount Some weeks he works 10 hours, and some weeks he works 40 hours. Turbo tax military discount Over the year he averages 20 hours a week. Turbo tax military discount The kind of work and his average hours a week conclusively show that Tom is able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Turbo tax military discount This is true even though Tom is not paid and he sets his own hours. Turbo tax military discount He cannot take the credit. Turbo tax military discount Example 3. Turbo tax military discount John, who retired on disability, took a job with a former employer on a trial basis. Turbo tax military discount The purpose of the job was to see if John could do the work. Turbo tax military discount The trial period lasted for 6 months during which John was paid the minimum wage. Turbo tax military discount Because of John's disability, he was assigned only light duties of a nonproductive “make-work” nature. Turbo tax military discount The activity was gainful because John was paid at least the minimum wage. Turbo tax military discount But the activity was not substantial because his duties were nonproductive. Turbo tax military discount These facts do not, by themselves, show that John is able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Turbo tax military discount Example 4. Turbo tax military discount Joan, who retired on disability from a job as a bookkeeper, lives with her sister who manages several motel units. Turbo tax military discount Joan helps her sister for 1 or 2 hours a day by performing duties such as washing dishes, answering phones, registering guests, and bookkeeping. Turbo tax military discount Joan can select the time of day when she feels most fit to work. Turbo tax military discount Work of this nature, performed off and on during the day at Joan's convenience, is not activity of a “substantial and gainful” nature even if she is paid for the work. Turbo tax military discount The performance of these duties does not, of itself, show that Joan is able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Turbo tax military discount Sheltered employment. Turbo tax military discount   Certain work offered at qualified locations to physically or mentally impaired persons is considered sheltered employment. Turbo tax military discount These qualified locations are in sheltered workshops, hospitals and similar institutions, homebound programs, and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) sponsored homes. Turbo tax military discount   Compared to commercial employment, pay is lower for sheltered employment. Turbo tax military discount Therefore, one usually does not look for sheltered employment if he or she can get other employment. Turbo tax military discount The fact that one has accepted sheltered employment is not proof of the person's ability to engage in substantial gainful activity. Turbo tax military discount Physician's statement. Turbo tax military discount   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. Turbo tax military discount You can use the statement in the Instructions for Schedule R. Turbo tax military discount   You do not have to file this statement with your Form 1040 or Form 1040A, but you must keep it for your records. Turbo tax military discount Veterans. Turbo tax military discount    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. Turbo tax military discount VA Form 21-0172 must be signed by a person authorized by the VA to do so. Turbo tax military discount You can get this form from your local VA regional office. Turbo tax military discount Physician's statement obtained in earlier year. Turbo tax military discount   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. Turbo tax military discount For a detailed explanation of the conditions you must meet, see the instructions for Schedule R, Part II. Turbo tax military discount If you meet the required conditions, check the box on your Schedule R, Part II, line 2. Turbo tax military discount   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. Turbo tax military discount Disability income. Turbo tax military discount   If you are under age 65, you must also have taxable disability income to qualify for the credit. Turbo tax military discount Disability income must meet both of the following requirements. Turbo tax military discount It must be paid under your employer's accident or health plan or pension plan. Turbo tax military discount 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. Turbo tax military discount Payments that are not disability income. Turbo tax military discount    Any payment you receive from a plan that does not provide for disability retirement is not disability income. Turbo tax military discount 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. Turbo tax military discount    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. Turbo tax military discount Mandatory retirement age is the age set by your employer at which you would have had to retire, had you not become disabled. Turbo tax military discount Income Limits To determine if you can claim the credit, you must consider two income limits. Turbo tax military discount The first limit is the amount of your adjusted gross income (AGI). Turbo tax military discount The second limit is the amount of nontaxable social security and other nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income you received. Turbo tax military discount The limits are shown in Table 1. Turbo tax military discount If your AGI and your nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are less than the income limits, you may be able to claim the credit. Turbo tax military discount See Figuring the Credit Yourself , later. Turbo tax military discount Table 1. Turbo tax military discount Income Limits IF your filing status is THEN, even if you qualify (see Figure A), you CANNOT take the credit if   Your adjusted gross income (AGI)* is equal to or more than. Turbo tax military discount . Turbo tax military discount . Turbo tax military discount     OR the total of your nontaxable social security and other nontaxable pension(s), annuities, or disability income is equal to or more than.

Turbo tax military discount If your AGI or your nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are equal to or more than the income limits, you cannot take the credit. Turbo tax military discount Credit Figured for You You can figure the credit yourself, or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will figure it for you. Turbo tax military discount See Figuring the Credit Yourself , next. Turbo tax military discount If you can take the credit and you want the IRS to figure the credit for you, attach Schedule R to your return. Turbo tax military discount Check the appropriate box in Part I of Schedule R and fill in Part II and lines 11, 13a, and 13b of Part III, if they apply to you. Turbo tax military discount If you file Form 1040A, enter “CFE” in the space to the left of Form 1040A, line 30. Turbo tax military discount If you file Form 1040, check box c on Form 1040, line 53, and enter “CFE” on the line next to that box. Turbo tax military discount Attach Schedule R to your return. Turbo tax military discount Table 2. Turbo tax military discount Initial Amounts IF your filing status is. Turbo tax military discount . Turbo tax military discount .

Turbo tax military discount     2 Amount cannot be more than your combined taxable disability income. Turbo tax military discount     3 Amount is $5,000 plus the taxable disability income of the spouse under age 65, but not more than $7,500. Turbo tax military discount   Figuring the Credit Yourself If you figure the credit yourself, fill out the front of Schedule R. Turbo tax military discount Next, fill out Schedule R, Part III. Turbo tax military discount If you file Form 1040A, enter the amount from Schedule R, line 22 on line 30. Turbo tax military discount If you file Form 1040, include the amount from Schedule R, line 22 on line 53, check box c, and enter “Sch R” on the line next to that box. Turbo tax military discount There are five steps in Part III to determine the amount of your credit. Turbo tax military discount Determine your initial amount (lines 10–12). Turbo tax military discount Determine the total of any nontaxable social security and certain other nontaxable pensions, annuities, and disability benefits you received (lines 13a, 13b, and 13c). Turbo tax military discount Determine your excess adjusted gross income (lines 14–17). Turbo tax military discount Determine the total of steps 2 and 3 (line 18). Turbo tax military discount Determine your credit (lines 19–22). Turbo tax military discount These steps are discussed in more detail next. Turbo tax military discount Step 1. Turbo tax military discount Determine Initial Amount To figure the credit, you must first determine your initial amount using lines 10 through 12. Turbo tax military discount See Table 2. Turbo tax military discount Your initial amount is on line 12. Turbo tax military discount Initial amounts for persons under age 65. Turbo tax military discount   If you are a qualified individual under age 65, your initial amount cannot be more than your taxable disability income. Turbo tax military discount Special rules for joint returns. Turbo tax military discount   If you are a qualified individual under age 65, and your spouse is also a qualified individual, your initial amount is your taxable disability income plus $5,000. Turbo tax military discount   If you are a qualified individual, and both you and your spouse are under age 65, your initial amount cannot be more than your combined taxable disability income. Turbo tax military discount Step 2. Turbo tax military discount Total Certain Nontaxable Pensions and Benefits Step 2 is to figure the total amount of nontaxable social security and certain other nontaxable payments you received during the year. Turbo tax military discount You must reduce your initial amount by these payments. Turbo tax military discount Enter these nontaxable payments on lines 13a or 13b and total them on line 13c. Turbo tax military discount If you are married filing jointly, you must enter the combined amount of nontaxable payments both you and your spouse received. Turbo tax military discount Worksheets are provided in the instructions for Forms 1040 and 1040A to help you determine if any of your social security benefits (or equivalent railroad retirement benefits) are taxable. Turbo tax military discount Include the following nontaxable payments in the amounts you enter on lines 13a and 13b. Turbo tax military discount Nontaxable social security payments. Turbo tax military discount This is the nontaxable part of the benefits shown in box 5 of Form SSA-1099, Social Security Benefit Statement, before deducting any amounts withheld to pay premiums on supplementary Medicare insurance, and before any reduction because of benefits received under workers' compensation. Turbo tax military discount (Do not include a lump-sum death benefit payment you may receive as a surviving spouse, or a surviving child's insurance benefit payments you may receive as a guardian. Turbo tax military discount ) Nontaxable railroad retirement pension payments treated as social security. Turbo tax military discount This is the nontaxable part of the benefits shown in box 5 of Form RRB-1099, Payments by the Railroad Retirement Board. Turbo tax military discount Nontaxable pension or annuity payments or disability benefits that are paid under a law administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Turbo tax military discount (Do not include amounts received as a pension, annuity, or similar allowance for personal injuries or sickness resulting from active service in the armed forces of any country or in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration or the Public Health Service, or as a disability annuity under section 808 of the Foreign Service Act of 1980. Turbo tax military discount ) Pension or annuity payments or disability benefits that are excluded from income under any provision of federal law other than the Internal Revenue Code. Turbo tax military discount (Do not include amounts that are a return of your cost of a pension or annuity. Turbo tax military discount These amounts do not reduce your initial amount. Turbo tax military discount ) You should be sure to take into account all of the nontaxable amounts you receive. Turbo tax military discount These amounts are verified by the IRS through information supplied by other government agencies. Turbo tax military discount Step 3. Turbo tax military discount Determine Excess Adjusted Gross Income You also must reduce your initial amount by your excess adjusted gross income. Turbo tax military discount Figure your excess adjusted gross income on lines 14–17. Turbo tax military discount You figure your excess adjusted gross income as follows. Turbo tax military discount Subtract from your adjusted gross income (Form 1040A, line 22 or Form 1040, line 38) the amount shown for your filing status. Turbo tax military discount $7,500 if you are single, a head of household, or a qualifying widow(er) with dependent child, $10,000 if you are married filing jointly, or $5,000 if you are married filing separately and you and your spouse did not live in the same household at any time during the tax year. Turbo tax military discount Divide the result of (1) by 2. Turbo tax military discount Step 4. Turbo tax military discount Determine the Total of Steps 2 and 3 To determine if you can take the credit, you must add (on line 18) the amounts you figured in Step 2 (line 13c) and Step 3 (line 17). Turbo tax military discount Step 5. Turbo tax military discount Determine Your Credit Subtract the amount determined in Step 4 (line 18) from the amount determined in Step 1 (line 12), and multiply the result by 15% (. Turbo tax military discount 15). Turbo tax military discount In certain cases, the amount of your credit may be limited. Turbo tax military discount See Limit on credit , later. Turbo tax military discount Example. Turbo tax military discount You are 66 years old and your spouse is 64. Turbo tax military discount Your spouse is not disabled. Turbo tax military discount You file a joint return on Form 1040. Turbo tax military discount Your adjusted gross income is $14,630. Turbo tax military discount Together you received $3,200 from social security, which was nontaxable. Turbo tax military discount You figure the credit as follows: Example applying the 5 step process Amount (Line references (shown in parentheses) are to the Schedule R)      1. Turbo tax military discount Initial amount (line 12) $5,000 2. Turbo tax military discount Total nontaxable social security  and other nontaxable  pensions (line 13c) $3,200   3. Turbo tax military discount Excess adjusted gross income  ($14,630–$10,000) ÷ 2 (line 17) 2,315   4. Turbo tax military discount Add (2) and (3) (line 18) 5,515 5. Turbo tax military discount Subtract (4) from (1) (line 12 – line 18 = line 19) (Do not enter less than -0-) $ -0- You cannot take the credit because your nontaxable social security plus your excess adjusted gross income is more than your initial amount. Turbo tax military discount Limit on credit. Turbo tax military discount   The amount of credit you can claim is generally limited to the amount of your tax. Turbo tax military discount Use the Credit Limit Worksheet in the Instructions for Schedule R to determine if your credit is limited. Turbo tax military discount Examples The following examples illustrate the credit for the elderly or the disabled. Turbo tax military discount The initial amounts are taken from Table 2, earlier. Turbo tax military discount Example 1. Turbo tax military discount James Davis is 58 years old, single, and files Form 1040A. Turbo tax military discount In 2011 he retired on permanent and total disability, and he is still permanently and totally disabled. Turbo tax military discount He got the required physician's statement in 2011 and kept it with his tax records. Turbo tax military discount His physician signed on line B of the statement. Turbo tax military discount This year James checks the box in Schedule R, Part II. Turbo tax military discount He does not need to get another statement for 2013. Turbo tax military discount He received the following income for the year: Nontaxable social security $1,500 Interest (taxable) 100 Taxable disability pension 11,400       James' adjusted gross income is $11,500 ($11,400 + $100). Turbo tax military discount He figures the credit on Schedule R as follows: 1. Turbo tax military discount Initial amount   $5,000 2. Turbo tax military discount Taxable disability pension   11,400 3. Turbo tax military discount Smaller of line 1 or line 2   5,000 4. Turbo tax military discount Nontaxable social security  benefits $1,500     5. Turbo tax military discount Excess adjusted gross income  ($11,500 − $7,500) ÷ 2 2,000     6. Turbo tax military discount Add lines 4 and 5   3,500 7. Turbo tax military discount Subtract line 6 from line 3  (Do not enter less than (-0-))   1,500 8. Turbo tax military discount Multiply line 7 by 15% (. Turbo tax military discount 15)   225 9. Turbo tax military discount Enter the amount from the  Credit Limit Worksheet in the  Instructions for Schedule R, line 21   151 10. Turbo tax military discount Credit (Enter the smaller of  line 8 or line 9)   $ 151 He enters $151 on line 30 of Form 1040A. Turbo tax military discount The Schedule R for James Davis is not shown. Turbo tax military discount Example 2. Turbo tax military discount William White is 53. Turbo tax military discount His wife Helen is 49. Turbo tax military discount William had a stroke 3 years ago and retired on permanent and total disability. Turbo tax military discount He is still permanently and totally disabled because of the stroke. Turbo tax military discount In November, Helen was injured in an accident at work and retired on permanent and total disability. Turbo tax military discount William received nontaxable social security disability benefits of $2,000 during the year and a taxable disability pension of $6,200. Turbo tax military discount Helen earned $12,500 from her job and received a taxable disability pension of $1,700. Turbo tax military discount Their joint return on Form 1040 shows adjusted gross income of $20,400 ($6,200 + $12,500 + $1,700). Turbo tax military discount They do not itemize deductions. Turbo tax military discount They do not have any amounts that would increase their standard deduction. Turbo tax military discount Helen's doctor completed the physician's statement in the Instructions for Schedule R. Turbo tax military discount Helen is not required to include the statement with their return, but she must keep it for her records. Turbo tax military discount William got a physician's statement for the year he had the stroke. Turbo tax military discount His doctor had signed on line B of that physician's statement to certify that William was permanently and totally disabled. Turbo tax military discount William has kept the physician's statement with his records. Turbo tax military discount He checks the box on Schedule R, Part II and writes his first name in the space above the box on line 2. Turbo tax military discount William and Helen use Schedule R to figure their $41 credit for the elderly or the disabled.
