interest with respect to the obligation may be transferred only through a book entry system maintained by the issuer or its agent; or (iii) the obligation is registered as to both principal and stated interest with the issuer or its agent and can be transferred both by surrender and reissuance and through a book entry system. 2008 taxes   An obligation that would otherwise be considered to be in registered form is not considered to be in registered form as of a particular time if it can be converted at any time in the future into an obligation that is not in registered form. 2008 taxes For more information on whether obligations are considered to be in registered form, see Portfolio interest in Publication 515. 2008 taxes Obligations not in registered form. 2008 taxes    For obligations

on the obligation is payable only outside the United States and its possessions, and The face of the obligation contains a statement that any United States person who holds the obligation will be subject to limits under the United States income tax laws. 2008 taxes   Documentation is not required for interest on bearer obligations to qualify as portfolio interest. 2008 taxes In some cases, however, you may need documentation for purposes of Form 1099 reporting and backup withholding. 2008 taxes Interest that does not qualify as portfolio interest. 2008 taxes   Payments to certain

all times thereafter before that debt was issued. 2008 taxes Dividend Income The following dividend income is exempt from the 30% tax. 2008 taxes Certain dividends paid by foreign corporations. 2008

amount of U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes source dividends. 2008 taxes Certain interest-related dividends. 2008 taxes   There is no 30% tax on interest-related dividends from sources within the United

taxes Certain short-term capital gain dividends. 2008 taxes   There may not be any 30% tax on certain short-term capital gain dividends from sources within the United States that you receive from a mutual fund or other regulated investment company. 2008 taxes The mutual fund will designate in writing which dividends are short-term capital gain dividends. 2008 taxes This tax relief will not apply to you if you are present in the United States for 183 days or more during your tax year. 2008 taxes Services Performed for Foreign Employer If you were paid by a foreign employer, your U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes source income may be exempt from U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes tax, but only if you meet one of the situations discussed next. 2008 taxes Employees of foreign persons, organizations, or offices. 2008 taxes   Income for personal services performed in the United States as a nonresident alien is not considered to be from U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes sources and is tax exempt if you meet all three of the following conditions. 2008 taxes You perform personal services as an employee of or under a contract with a nonresident alien individual, foreign partnership, or foreign corporation, not engaged in a trade or business in the United States; or you work for an office or place of business maintained in a foreign country or possession of the United States by a U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes corporation, a U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes partnership, or a U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes citizen or resident. 2008 taxes You perform these services while you are a nonresident alien temporarily present in the United States for a period or periods of not more than a total of 90 days during the tax year. 2008 taxes Your pay for these services is not more than $3,000. 2008 taxes If you do not meet all three conditions, your income from personal services performed in the United States is U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes source income and is taxed according to the rules in chapter 4. 2008 taxes   If your pay for these services is more than $3,000, the entire amount is income from a trade or business within the United States. 2008 taxes To find if your pay is more than $3,000, do not include any amounts you get from your employer for advances or reimbursements of business travel expenses, if you were required to and did account to your employer for those expenses. 2008 taxes If the advances or reimbursements are more than your expenses, include the excess in your pay for these services. 2008 taxes   A day means a calendar day during any part of which you are physically present in the United States. 2008 taxes Example 1. 2008 taxes During 2013, Henry Smythe, a nonresident alien from a nontreaty country, worked for an overseas office of a U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes partnership. 2008 taxes Henry, who uses the calendar year as his tax year, was temporarily present in the United States for 60 days during 2013 performing personal services for the overseas office of the partnership. 2008 taxes That office paid him a total gross salary of $2,800 for those services. 2008 taxes During 2013, he was not engaged in a trade or business in the United States. 2008 taxes The salary is not considered U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes source income and is exempt from U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes tax. 2008 taxes Example 2. 2008 taxes The facts are the same as in Example 1, except that Henry's total gross salary for the services performed in the United States during 2013 was $4,500. 2008 taxes He received $2,875 in 2013, and $1,625 in 2014. 2008 taxes During 2013, he was engaged in a trade or business in the United States because the compensation for his personal services in the United States was more than $3,000. 2008 taxes Henry's salary is U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes source income and is taxed under the rules in chapter 4. 2008 taxes Crew members. 2008 taxes   Compensation for services performed by a nonresident alien in connection with the individual's temporary presence in the United States as a regular crew member of a foreign vessel (for example, a boat or ship) engaged in transportation between the United States and a foreign country or U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes possession is not U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes source income and is exempt from U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes tax. 2008 taxes This exemption does not apply to compensation for services performed on foreign aircraft. 2008 taxes Students and exchange visitors. 2008 taxes   Nonresident alien students and exchange visitors present in the United States under “F,” “J,” or “Q” visas can exclude from gross income pay received from a foreign employer. 2008 taxes   This group includes bona fide students, scholars, trainees, teachers, professors, research assistants, specialists, or leaders in a field of specialized knowledge or skill, or persons of similar description. 2008 taxes It also includes the alien's spouse and minor children if they come with the alien or come later to join the alien. 2008 taxes   A nonresident alien temporarily present in the United States under a “J” visa includes an alien individual entering the United States as an exchange visitor under the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961. 2008 taxes Foreign employer. 2008 taxes   A foreign employer is: A nonresident alien individual, foreign partnership, or foreign corporation, or An office or place of business maintained in a foreign country or in a U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes possession by a U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes corporation, a U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes partnership, or an individual who is a U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes citizen or resident. 2008 taxes   The term “foreign employer” does not include a foreign government. 2008 taxes Pay from a foreign government that is exempt from U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes income tax is discussed in chapter 10. 2008 taxes Income from certain annuities. 2008 taxes   Do not include in income any annuity received under a qualified annuity plan or from a qualified trust exempt from U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes income tax if you meet both of the following conditions. 2008 taxes You receive the annuity only because: You performed personal services outside the United States while you were a nonresident alien, or You performed personal services inside the United States while you were a nonresident alien and you met the three conditions, described earlier, under Employees of foreign persons, organizations, or offices . 2008 taxes At the time the first amount is paid as an annuity under the plan (or by the trust), 90% or more of the employees for whom contributions or benefits are provided under the annuity plan (or under the plan of which the trust is a part) are U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes citizens or residents. 2008 taxes   If the annuity qualifies under condition (1) but not condition (2) above, you do not have to include the amount in income if: You are a resident of a country that gives a substantially equal exclusion to U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes citizens and residents, or You are a resident of a beneficiary developing country under Title V of the Trade Act of 1974. 2008 taxes   If you are not sure whether the annuity is from a qualified annuity plan or qualified trust, ask the person who made the payment. 2008 taxes Income affected by treaties. 2008 taxes   Income of any kind that is exempt from U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes tax under a treaty to which the United States is a party is excluded from your gross income. 2008 taxes Income on which the tax is only limited by treaty, however, is included in gross income. 2008 taxes See chapter 9. 2008 taxes Gambling Winnings From Dog or Horse Racing You can exclude from your gross income winnings from legal wagers initiated outside the United States in a parimutuel pool with respect to a live horse or dog race in the United States. 2008 taxes Gain From the Sale of Your Main Home If you sold your main home, you

on the requirements for this exclusion, see Publication 523. 2008 taxes This exclusion does not apply to nonresident aliens who are subject to the expatriation tax rules discussed in chapter 4. 2008 taxes Scholarships and Fellowship Grants If you are a candidate for a degree, you may be able to exclude from your income part or all of the amounts you receive as a qualified scholarship. 2008 taxes The rules discussed here apply to both resident and nonresident aliens. 2008 taxes If a nonresident alien receives a grant that is not from U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes sources, it is not subject to U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes tax. 2008 taxes See Scholarships, Grants, Prizes, and Awards in chapter 2 to determine whether your grant is from U. 2008 taxes S. 2008 taxes sources. 2008 taxes A scholarship or fellowship is excludable from income only if: You are a candidate for a degree at an eligible educational institution, and You use the scholarship or fellowship to pay qualified education expenses. 2008 taxes Candidate for a degree. 2008 taxes   You are a candidate for a degree if you: Attend a primary or secondary school or are pursuing a degree at a college or university, or Attend an accredited educational institution that is authorized to provide: A program that is acceptable for full credit toward a bachelor's or higher degree, or A program of training to prepare students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation. 2008 taxes Eligible educational institution. 2008 taxes   An eligible educational institution is one that maintains a regular faculty and curriculum and normally has a regularly enrolled body of students in attendance at the place where it carries on its educational activities. 2008 taxes Qualified education expenses. 2008 taxes   These are expenses for: Tuition and fees required to enroll at or attend an eligible educational institution, and Course-related expenses, such as fees, books, supplies, and equipment that are required for the courses at the eligible educational institution. 2008 taxes These items must be required of all students in your course of instruction. 2008 taxes However, in order for these to be qualified education expenses, the terms of the scholarship or fellowship cannot require that it be used for other purposes, such as room and board, or specify that it cannot be used for tuition or course-related expenses. 2008 taxes Expenses that do not qualify. 2008 taxes   Qualified education expenses do not include the cost of: Room and board, Travel, Research, Clerical help, or Equipment and other expenses that are not required for enrollment in or attendance at an eligible educational institution. 2008 taxes This is true even if the fee must be paid to the institution as a condition of enrollment or attendance. 2008 taxes Scholarship or fellowship amounts used to pay these costs are taxable. 2008 taxes Amounts used to pay expenses that do not qualify. 2008 taxes   A scholarship amount used to pay any expense that does not qualify is taxable, even if the expense is a fee that must be paid to the institution as a condition of enrollment or attendance. 2008 taxes Payment for services. 2008 taxes   You cannot exclude from income the portion of any scholarship, fellowship, or tuition reduction that represents payment for past, present, or future teaching, research, or other services. 2008 taxes This is true even if all candidates for a degree are required to perform the services as a condition for receiving the degree. 2008 taxes Example. 2008 taxes On January 7, Maria Gomez is notified of a scholarship of $2,500 for the spring semester. 2008 taxes As a condition for receiving the scholarship, Maria must serve as a part-time teaching assistant. 2008 taxes Of the $2,500 scholarship, $1,000 represents payment for her services. 2008 taxes Assuming that Maria meets all other conditions, she can exclude no more than $1,500 from income as a qualified scholarship.

Answers to Common Questions

What is the notice telling me?
This notice is telling you that we intend to issue a levy against certain property or rights to property because you still have a balance due on one of your tax accounts. You must pay this amount immediately to avoid this. It is also telling you that we will begin searching for other assets on which to issue a levy. We may also file a Federal Tax Lien, if we have not already done so.

What do I have to do?
Pay the amount due shown on the notice. Mail us your payment in the envelope we sent you. Include the bottom part of the notice to make sure we correctly credit your account.

If you can't pay the whole amount now, call us at the number printed at the top of the notice to see if you qualify for an installment agreement.

How much time do I have?
You should pay your balance due by the due date shown on your notice.

What happens if I don't pay or contact the IRS?
If you don't pay the amount due, we may send you a notice giving you a right to a hearing before the IRS Office of Appeals if you have not already received such a notice. We may then seize ("levy") your property or rights to property. Property includes:

  • Wages, real estate commissions, and other income
  • Bank accounts
  • Business assets
  • Personal assets (including your car and home)
  • Social Security benefits

This is your notice of intent to levy as required by Internal Revenue Code section 6331(d).

If you don't pay the amount due or call us to make payment arrangements, we can file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien on your property at any time, if we haven’t already done so.

If the lien is in place, you may find it difficult to sell or borrow against your property. The tax lien would also appear on your credit report ― which may harm your credit rating ― and your creditors would also be publicly notified that the IRS has priority to seize your property.

Who should I contact?
If you have any questions about the notice, call us at the number printed at the top of the notice. A customer service representative will assist you.

What if I don't agree or have already taken corrective action?
If you do not agree with this notice, contact us immediately at the number printed at the top of the notice. We will do our best to help you. If you have already paid this liability or arranged to pay it with an installment agreement, you should still call us at the number printed at the top of the notice to make sure your account reflects this.
