Can you file 2011 taxes now Under special rules, income that can otherwise be characterized as community income may not be treated as community income for federal income tax purposes in certain situations. Can you file 2011 taxes now See Community Property Laws Disregarded, later. Can you file 2011 taxes now Check your state law if you are separated but do not meet the conditions discussed in Spouses living apart all year, later. Can you file 2011 taxes now In some states, the income you earn after you are separated and before a divorce decree is issued continues to be community income. Can you file 2011 taxes now In other states, it is separate income. Can you file 2011 taxes now Income The following is a discussion of the general effect of community property laws on the federal income tax treatment of certain items of income. Can you file 2011 taxes now Wages, earnings, and profits. Can you file 2011 taxes now    A spouse's (or your registered domestic partner's) wages, earnings, and net profits from a sole proprietorship are community income and must be evenly split. Can you file 2011 taxes now Dividends, interest, and rents. Can you file 2011 taxes now    Dividends, interest, and rents from community property are community income and must be evenly split. Can you file 2011 taxes now Dividends, interest, and rents from separate property are characterized in accordance with the discussion under Income from separate property , later. Can you file 2011 taxes now Example. Can you file 2011 taxes now If you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) buy a bond that is considered community property under your state laws, half the bond interest belongs to you and half belongs to your spouse. Can you file 2011 taxes now You each must show the bond interest and the split of that interest on your Form 8958, and report half the interest on your Form 1040. Can you file 2011 taxes now Attach your Form 8958 to your Form 1040. Can you file 2011 taxes now Alimony received. Can you file 2011 taxes now    Alimony or separate maintenance payments made prior to divorce are taxable to the payee spouse only to the extent they exceed 50% (his or her share) of the reportable community income. Can you file 2011 taxes now This is so because the payee spouse is already required to report half of the community income. Can you file 2011 taxes now See also Alimony paid , later. Can you file 2011 taxes now Gains and losses. Can you file 2011 taxes now    Gains and losses are classified as separate or community depending on how the property is held. Can you file 2011 taxes now For example, a loss on separate property, such as stock held separately, is a separate loss. Can you file 2011 taxes now On the other hand, a loss on community property, such as a casualty loss to your home held as community property, is a community loss. Can you file 2011 taxes now See Publication 544, Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets, for information on gains and losses. Can you file 2011 taxes now See Publication 547, Casualties, Disasters, and Thefts, for information on losses due to a casualty or theft. Can you file 2011 taxes now Withdrawals from individual retirement arrangements (IRAs) and Coverdell Education Savings Accounts (ESAs). Can you file 2011 taxes now    There are several kinds of individual retirement arrangements (IRAs). Can you file 2011 taxes now They are traditional IRAs (including SEP-IRAs), SIMPLE IRAs, and Roth IRAs. Can you file 2011 taxes now IRAs and ESAs by law are deemed to be separate property. Can you file 2011 taxes now Therefore, taxable IRA and ESA distributions are separate property, even if the funds in the account would otherwise be community property. Can you file 2011 taxes now These distributions are wholly taxable to the spouse (or registered domestic partner) whose name is on the account. Can you file 2011 taxes now That spouse (or registered domestic partner) is also liable for any penalties and additional taxes on the distributions. Can you file 2011 taxes now Pensions. Can you file 2011 taxes now    Generally, distributions from pensions will be characterized as community or separate income depending on the respective periods of participation in the pension while married (or during the registered domestic partnership) and domiciled in a community property state or in a noncommunity property state during the total period of participation in the pension. Can you file 2011 taxes now See the example under Civil service retirement , later. Can you file 2011 taxes now These rules may vary between states. Can you file 2011 taxes now Check your state law. Can you file 2011 taxes now Lump-sum distributions. Can you file 2011 taxes now    If you were born before January 2, 1936, and receive a lump-sum distribution from a qualified retirement plan, you may be able to choose an optional method of figuring the tax on the distribution. Can you file 2011 taxes now For the 10-year tax option, you must disregard community property laws. Can you file 2011 taxes now For more information, see Publication 575, Pension and Annuity Income, and Form 4972, Tax on Lump-Sum Distributions. Can you file 2011 taxes now Civil service retirement. Can you file 2011 taxes now    For income tax purposes, community property laws apply to annuities payable under the Civil Service Retirement Act (CSRS) or Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS). Can you file 2011 taxes now   Whether a civil service annuity is separate or community income depends on your marital status (or your status as a registered domestic partner) and domicile of the employee when the services were performed for which the annuity is paid. Can you file 2011 taxes now Even if you now live in a noncommunity property state and you receive a civil service annuity, it may be community income if it is based on services you performed while married (or during the registered domestic partnership) and domiciled in a community property state. Can you file 2011 taxes now   If a civil service annuity is a mixture of community income and separate income, it must be divided between the two kinds of income. Can you file 2011 taxes now The division is based on the employee's domicile and marital status (or registered domestic partnership) in community and noncommunity property states during his or her periods of service. Can you file 2011 taxes now Example. Can you file 2011 taxes now Henry Wright retired this year after 30 years of civil service. Can you file 2011 taxes now He and his wife were domiciled in a community property state during the past 15 years. Can you file 2011 taxes now Since half the service was performed while the Wrights were married and domiciled in a community property state, half the civil service retirement pay is considered to be community income. Can you file 2011 taxes now If Mr. Can you file 2011 taxes now Wright receives $1,000 a month in retirement pay, $500 is considered community income—half ($250) is his income and half ($250) is his wife's. Can you file 2011 taxes now Military retirement pay. Can you file 2011 taxes now    State community property laws apply to military retirement pay. Can you file 2011 taxes now Generally, the pay is either separate or community income based on the marital status and domicile of the couple while the member of the Armed Forces was in active military service. Can you file 2011 taxes now For example, military retirement pay for services performed during marriage and domicile in a community property state is community income. Can you file 2011 taxes now   Active military pay earned while married and domiciled in a community property state is also community income. Can you file 2011 taxes now This income is considered to be received half by the member of the Armed Forces and half by the spouse. Can you file 2011 taxes now Partnership income. Can you file 2011 taxes now    If an interest is held in a partnership, and income from the partnership is attributable to the efforts of either spouse (or registered domestic partner), the partnership income is community property. Can you file 2011 taxes now If it is merely a passive investment in a separate property partnership, the partnership income will be characterized in accordance with the discussion under Income from separate property , later. Can you file 2011 taxes now Tax-exempt income. Can you file 2011 taxes now    For spouses, community income exempt from federal tax generally keeps its exempt status for both spouses. Can you file 2011 taxes now For example, under certain circumstances, income earned outside the United States is tax exempt. Can you file 2011 taxes now If you earned income and met the conditions that made it exempt, the income is also exempt for your spouse even though he or she may not have met the conditions. Can you file 2011 taxes now Registered domestic partners should consult the particular exclusion provision to see if the exempt status applies to both. Can you file 2011 taxes now Income from separate property. Can you file 2011 taxes now    In some states, income from separate property is separate income. Can you file 2011 taxes now These states include Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Washington. Can you file 2011 taxes now Other states characterize income from separate property as community income. Can you file 2011 taxes now These states include Idaho, Louisiana, Texas, and Wisconsin. Can you file 2011 taxes now Exemptions When you file separate returns, you must claim your own exemption amount for that year. Can you file 2011 taxes now (See your tax return instructions. Can you file 2011 taxes now ) You cannot divide the amount allowed as an exemption for a dependent between you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner). Can you file 2011 taxes now When community funds provide support for more than one person, each of whom otherwise qualifies as a dependent, you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) may divide the number of dependency exemptions as explained in the following example. Can you file 2011 taxes now Example. Can you file 2011 taxes now Ron and Diane White have three dependent children and live in Nevada. Can you file 2011 taxes now If Ron and Diane file separately, only Ron can claim his own exemption, and only Diane can claim her own exemption. Can you file 2011 taxes now Ron and Diane can agree that one of them will claim the exemption for one, two, or all of their children and the other will claim any remaining exemptions. Can you file 2011 taxes now They cannot each claim half of the total exemption amount for their three children. Can you file 2011 taxes now Deductions If you file separate returns, your deductions generally depend on whether the expenses involve community or separate income. Can you file 2011 taxes now Business and investment expenses. Can you file 2011 taxes now    If you file separate returns, expenses incurred to earn or produce community business or investment income are generally divided equally between you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner). Can you file 2011 taxes now Each of you is entitled to deduct one-half of the expenses on your separate returns. Can you file 2011 taxes now Expenses incurred by a spouse (or registered domestic partner) to produce separate business or investment income is deductible by the spouse (or the registered domestic partner) who earns the corresponding separate business or investment income. Can you file 2011 taxes now    Other limits may also apply to business and investment expenses. Can you file 2011 taxes now For more information, see Publication 535, Business Expenses, and Publication 550, Investment Income and Expenses. Can you file 2011 taxes now Alimony paid. Can you file 2011 taxes now    Payments that may otherwise qualify as alimony are not deductible by the payer if they are the recipient spouse's part of community income. Can you file 2011 taxes now They are deductible as alimony only to the extent they are more than that spouse's part of community income. Can you file 2011 taxes now Example. Can you file 2011 taxes now You live in a community property state. Can you file 2011 taxes now You are separated but the special rules explained later under Spouses living apart all year do not apply. Can you file 2011 taxes now Under a written agreement, you pay your spouse $12,000 of your $20,000 total yearly community income. Can you file 2011 taxes now Your spouse receives no other community income. Can you file 2011 taxes now Under your state law, earnings of a spouse living separately and apart from the other spouse continue as community property. Can you file 2011 taxes now On your separate returns, each of you must report $10,000 of the total community income. Can you file 2011 taxes now In addition, your spouse must report $2,000 as alimony received. Can you file 2011 taxes now You can deduct $2,000 as alimony paid. Can you file 2011 taxes now IRA deduction. Can you file 2011 taxes now    Deductions for IRA contributions cannot be split between spouses (or registered domestic partners). Can you file 2011 taxes now The deduction for each spouse (or each registered domestic partner) is figured separately and without regard to community property laws. Can you file 2011 taxes now Personal expenses. Can you file 2011 taxes now   Expenses that are paid out of separate funds, such as medical expenses, are deductible by the spouse who pays them. Can you file 2011 taxes now If these expenses are paid from community funds, divide the deduction equally between you and your spouse. Can you file 2011 taxes now Credits, Taxes, and Payments The following is a discussion of the general effect of community property laws on the treatment of certain credits, taxes, and payments on your separate return. Can you file 2011 taxes now Child tax credit. Can you file 2011 taxes now    You may be entitled to a child tax credit for each of your qualifying children. Can you file 2011 taxes now You must provide the name and identification number (usually the social security number) of each qualifying child on your return. Can you file 2011 taxes now See your tax return instructions for the maximum amount of the credit you can claim for each qualifying child. Can you file 2011 taxes now Limit on credit. Can you file 2011 taxes now    The credit is limited if your modified adjusted gross income (modified AGI) is above a certain amount. Can you file 2011 taxes now The amount at which the limitation (phaseout) begins depends on your filing status. Can you file 2011 taxes now Generally, your credit is limited to your tax liability unless you have three or more qualifying children. Can you file 2011 taxes now See your tax return instructions for more information. Can you file 2011 taxes now Self-employment tax. Can you file 2011 taxes now    For the effect of community property laws on the income tax treatment of income from a sole proprietorship and partnerships, see Wages, earnings, and profits and Partnership income , earlier. Can you file 2011 taxes now The following rules only apply to persons married for federal tax purposes. Can you file 2011 taxes now Registered domestic partners report community income for self-employment tax purposes the same way they do for income tax purposes. Can you file 2011 taxes now Sole proprietorship. Can you file 2011 taxes now    With regard to net income from a trade or business (other than a partnership) that is community income, self-employment tax is imposed on the spouse carrying on the trade or business. Can you file 2011 taxes now Partnerships. Can you file 2011 taxes now    All of the distributive share of a married partner's income or loss from a partnership trade or business is attributable to the partner for computing any self-employment tax, even if a portion of the partner's distributive share of income or loss is community income or loss that is otherwise attributable to the partner's spouse for income tax purposes. Can you file 2011 taxes now If both spouses are partners, any self-employment tax is allocated based on their distributive shares. Can you file 2011 taxes now Federal income tax withheld. Can you file 2011 taxes now    Report the credit for federal income tax withheld on community wages in the same manner as your wages. Can you file 2011 taxes now If you and your spouse file separate returns on which each of you reports half the community wages, each of you is entitled to credit for half the income tax withheld on those wages. Can you file 2011 taxes now Likewise, each registered domestic partner is entitled to credit for half the income tax withheld on those wages. Can you file 2011 taxes now Estimated tax payments. Can you file 2011 taxes now    In determining whether you must pay estimated tax, apply the estimated tax rules to your estimated income. Can you file 2011 taxes now These rules are explained in Publication 505. Can you file 2011 taxes now   If you think you may owe estimated tax and want to pay the tax separately (registered domestic partners must pay the tax separately), determine whether you must pay it by taking into account: Half the community income and deductions, All of your separate income and deductions, and Your own exemption and any exemptions for dependents that you may claim. Can you file 2011 taxes now   Whether you and your spouse pay estimated tax jointly or separately will not affect your choice of filing joint or separate income tax returns. Can you file 2011 taxes now   If you and your spouse paid estimated tax jointly but file separate income tax returns, either of you can claim all of the estimated tax paid, or you may divide it between you in any way that you agree upon. Can you file 2011 taxes now   If you cannot agree on how to divide it, the estimated tax you can claim equals the total estimated tax paid times the tax shown on your separate return, divided by the total of the tax shown on your return and your spouse's return. Can you file 2011 taxes now   If you paid your estimated taxes separately, you get credit for only the estimated taxes you paid. Can you file 2011 taxes now Earned income credit. Can you file 2011 taxes now    You may be entitled to an earned income credit (EIC). Can you file 2011 taxes now You cannot claim this credit if your filing status is married filing separately. Can you file 2011 taxes now   If you are married, but qualify to file as head of household under rules for married taxpayers living apart (see Publication 501, Exemptions, Standard Deduction, and Filing Information), and live in a state that has community property laws, your earned income for the EIC does not include any amount earned by your spouse that is treated as belonging to you under community property laws. Can you file 2011 taxes now That amount is not earned income for the EIC, even though you must include it in your gross income on your income tax return. Can you file 2011 taxes now Your earned income includes the entire amount you earned, even if part of it is treated as belonging to your spouse under your state's community property laws. Can you file 2011 taxes now The same rule applies to registered domestic partners. Can you file 2011 taxes now    This rule does not apply when determining your adjusted gross income (AGI) for the EIC. Can you file 2011 taxes now Your AGI includes that part of both your and your spouse's (or your registered domestic partner's) wages that you are required to include in gross income shown on your tax return. Can you file 2011 taxes now   For more information about the EIC, see Publication 596, Earned Income Credit (EIC). Can you file 2011 taxes now Overpayments. Can you file 2011 taxes now    The amount of an overpayment on a joint return is allocated under the community property laws of the state in which you are domiciled. Can you file 2011 taxes now If, under the laws of your state, community property is subject to premarital or other separate debts of either spouse, the full joint overpayment may be used to offset the obligation. Can you file 2011 taxes now If, under the laws of your state, community property is not subject to premarital or other separate debts of either spouse, only the portion of the joint overpayment allocated to the spouse liable for the obligation can be used to offset that liability. Can you file 2011 taxes now The portion allocated to the other spouse can be refunded. Can you file 2011 taxes now Community Property Laws Disregarded The following discussions are situations where special rules apply to community property and community income for spouses. Can you file 2011 taxes now These rules do not apply to registered domestic partners. Can you file 2011 taxes now Certain community income not treated as community income by one spouse. Can you file 2011 taxes now    Community property laws may not apply to an item of community income that you received but did not treat as community income. Can you file 2011 taxes now You are responsible for reporting all of that income item if: You treat the item as if only you are entitled to the income, and You do not notify your spouse of the nature and amount of the income by the due date for filing the return (including extensions). Can you file 2011 taxes now Relief from liability arising from community property law. Can you file 2011 taxes now    You are not responsible for the tax relating to an item of community income if all the following conditions are met. Can you file 2011 taxes now You did not file a joint return for the tax year. Can you file 2011 taxes now You did not include an item of community income in gross income. Can you file 2011 taxes now The item of community income you did not include is one of the following: Wages, salaries, and other compensation your spouse (or former spouse) received for services he or she performed as an employee. Can you file 2011 taxes now Income your spouse (or former spouse) derived from a trade or business he or she operated as a sole proprietor.

Can you file 2011 taxes now You and your spouse did not file a joint return for a tax year beginning or ending in the calendar year. Can you file 2011 taxes now You and/or your spouse had earned income for the calendar year that is community income.

Can you file 2011 taxes now If all these conditions are met, you and your spouse must report your community income as discussed next. Can you file 2011 taxes now See also Certain community income not treated as community income by one spouse , earlier. Can you file 2011 taxes now Earned income. Can you file 2011 taxes now    Treat earned income that is not trade or business or partnership income as the income of the spouse who performed the services to earn the income. Can you file 2011 taxes now Earned income is wages, salaries, professional fees, and other pay for personal services. Can you file 2011 taxes now   Earned income does not include amounts paid by a corporation that are a distribution of earnings and profits rather than a reasonable allowance for personal services rendered. Can you file 2011 taxes now Trade or business income. Can you file 2011 taxes now    Treat income and related deductions from a trade or business that is not a partnership as those of the spouse carrying on the trade or business. Can you file 2011 taxes now Partnership income or loss. Can you file 2011 taxes now    Treat income or loss from a trade or business carried on by a partnership as the income or loss of the spouse who is the partner.

Can you file 2011 taxes now Example. Can you file 2011 taxes now George and Sharon were married throughout the year but did not live together at any time during the year. Can you file 2011 taxes now Both domiciles were in a community property state. Can you file 2011 taxes now They did not file a joint return or transfer any of their earned income between themselves. Can you file 2011 taxes now During the year their incomes were as follows:   George Sharon Wages $20,000 $22,000 Consulting business 5,000   Partnership   10,000 Dividends from separate property 1,000 2,000 Interest from community property 500 500 Total $26,500 $34,500 Under the community property law of their state, all the income is considered community income. Can you file 2011 taxes now (Some states treat income from separate property as separate income—check your state law. Can you file 2011 taxes now ) Sharon did not take part in George's consulting business. Can you file 2011 taxes now Ordinarily, on their separate returns they would each report $30,500, half the total community income of $61,000 ($26,500 + $34,500). Can you file 2011 taxes now But because they meet the four conditions listed earlier under Spouses living apart all year , they must disregard community property law in reporting all their income (except the interest income) from community property. Can you file 2011 taxes now They each report on their returns only their own earnings and other income, and their share of the interest income from community property. Can you file 2011 taxes now George reports $26,500 and Sharon reports $34,500. Can you file 2011 taxes now Other separated spouses.

Can you file 2011 taxes now In other states, it is separate income. Can you file 2011 taxes now End of the Community The marital community may end in several ways. Can you file 2011 taxes now When the marital community ends, the community assets (money and property) are divided between the spouses. Can you file 2011 taxes now Similarly, a registered domestic partnership may end in several ways and the community assets must be divided between the registered domestic partners. Can you file 2011 taxes now Death of spouse. Can you file 2011 taxes now    If you own community property and your spouse dies, the total fair market value (FMV) of the community property, including the part that belongs to you, generally becomes the basis of the entire property. Can you file 2011 taxes now For this rule to apply, at least half the value of the community property interest must be includible in your spouse's gross estate, whether or not the estate must file a return (this rule does not apply to registered domestic partners). Can you file 2011 taxes now Example. Can you file 2011 taxes now Bob and Ann owned community property that had a basis of $80,000. Can you file 2011 taxes now When Bob died, his and Ann's community property had an FMV of $100,000. Can you file 2011 taxes now One-half of the FMV of their community interest was includible in Bob's estate. Can you file 2011 taxes now The basis of Ann's half of the property is $50,000 after Bob died (half of the $100,000 FMV). Can you file 2011 taxes now The basis of the other half to Bob's heirs is also $50,000. Can you file 2011 taxes now   For more information about the basis of assets, see Publication 551, Basis of Assets. Can you file 2011 taxes now    The above basis rule does not apply if your spouse died in 2010 and the spouse's executor elected out of the estate tax, in which case section 1022 will apply.

Can you file 2011 taxes now    If spouses divorce or separate, the (equal or unequal) division of community property in connection with the divorce or property settlement does not result in a gain or loss. Can you file 2011 taxes now For registered domestic partners, an unequal division of community property in a property settlement may result in a gain or loss. Can you file 2011 taxes now For information on the tax consequences of the division of property under a property settlement or divorce decree, see Publication 504. Can you file 2011 taxes now   Each spouse (or each registered domestic partner) is taxed on half the community income for the part of the year before the community ends. Can you file 2011 taxes now However, see Spouses living apart all year , earlier. Can you file 2011 taxes now Any income received after the community ends is separate income. Can you file 2011 taxes now This separate income is taxable only to the spouse (or the registered domestic partner) to whom it belongs. Can you file 2011 taxes now   An absolute decree of divorce or annulment ends the marital community in all community property states. Can you file 2011 taxes now A decree of annulment, even though it holds that no valid marriage ever existed, usually does not nullify community property rights arising during the “marriage. Can you file 2011 taxes now ” However, you should check your state law for exceptions. Can you file 2011 taxes now   A decree of legal separation or of separate maintenance may or may not end the marital community. Can you file 2011 taxes now The court issuing the decree may terminate the marital community and divide the property between the spouses. Can you file 2011 taxes now   A separation agreement may divide the community property between you and your spouse. Can you file 2011 taxes now It may provide that this property, along with future earnings and property acquired, will be separate property. Can you file 2011 taxes now This agreement may end the community. Can you file 2011 taxes now   In some states, the marital community ends when the spouses permanently separate, even if there is no formal agreement. Can you file 2011 taxes now Check your state law. Can you file 2011 taxes now   If you are a registered domestic partner, you should check your state law to determine when the community ends.

Can you file 2011 taxes now Those spouses must report their community income as explained in that discussion. Can you file 2011 taxes now Joint Return Versus Separate Returns Ordinarily, filing a joint return will give you a greater tax advantage than filing a separate return.

Can you file 2011 taxes now Separate Return Preparation If you file separate returns, you and your spouse must each report half of your combined community income and deductions in addition to your separate income and deductions. Can you file 2011 taxes now Each of you must complete and attach Form 8958 to your Form 1040 showing how you figured the amount you are reporting on your return.
