Deadline for taxes Resident aliens are generally taxed in the same way as U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes citizens. Deadline for taxes Nonresident aliens are taxed based on the source of their income and whether or not their income is effectively connected with a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business. Deadline for taxes The following discussions will help you determine if income you receive during the tax year is effectively connected with a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business and how it is taxed. Deadline for taxes Topics - This chapter discusses: Income that is effectively connected with a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business. Deadline for taxes Income that is not effectively connected with a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business. Deadline for taxes Interrupted period of residence. Deadline for taxes Expatriation tax. Deadline for taxes Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 544 Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets 1212 List of Original Issue Discount Instruments Form (and Instructions) 6251 Alternative Minimum Tax—Individuals Schedule D (Form 1040) Capital Gains and Losses See chapter 12 for information about getting these publications and forms. Deadline for taxes Resident Aliens Resident aliens are generally taxed in the same way as U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes citizens. Deadline for taxes This means that their worldwide income is subject to U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes tax and must be reported on their U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes tax return. Deadline for taxes Income of resident aliens is subject to the graduated tax rates that apply to U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes citizens. Deadline for taxes Resident aliens use the Tax Table or Tax Computation Worksheets located in the Form 1040 instructions, which apply to U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes citizens. Deadline for taxes Nonresident Aliens A nonresident alien's income that is subject to U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes income tax must be divided into two categories: Income that is effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States, and Income that is not effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States (discussed under The 30% Tax, later). Deadline for taxes The difference between these two categories is that effectively connected income, after allowable deductions, is taxed at graduated rates. Deadline for taxes These are the same rates that apply to U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes citizens and residents. Deadline for taxes Income that is not effectively connected is taxed at a flat 30% (or lower treaty) rate. Deadline for taxes If you were formerly a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes citizen or resident alien, these rules may not apply. Deadline for taxes See Expatriation Tax, later, in this chapter. Deadline for taxes Trade or Business in the United States Generally, you must be engaged in a trade or business during the tax year to be able to treat income received in that year as effectively connected with that trade or business. Deadline for taxes Whether you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States depends on the nature of your activities. Deadline for taxes The discussions that follow will help you determine whether you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Deadline for taxes Personal Services If you perform personal services in the United States at any time during the tax year, you usually are considered engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Deadline for taxes Certain compensation paid to a nonresident alien by a foreign employer is not included in gross income. Deadline for taxes For more information, see Services Performed for Foreign Employer in chapter 3. Deadline for taxes Other Trade or Business Activities Other examples of being engaged in a trade or business in the United States follow. Deadline for taxes Students and trainees. Deadline for taxes   You are considered engaged in a trade or business in the United States if you are temporarily present in the United States as a nonimmigrant under an “F,” “J,” “M,” or “Q” visa. Deadline for taxes A nonresident alien temporarily present in the United States under a “J” visa includes a nonresident alien individual admitted to the United States as an exchange visitor under the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961. Deadline for taxes The taxable part of any scholarship or fellowship grant that is U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes source income is treated as effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Deadline for taxes Business operations. Deadline for taxes   If you own and operate a business in the United States selling services, products, or merchandise, you are, with certain exceptions, engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Deadline for taxes Partnerships. Deadline for taxes   If you are a member of a partnership that at any time during the tax year is engaged in a trade or business in the United States, you are considered to be engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Deadline for taxes Beneficiary of an estate or trust. Deadline for taxes   If you are the beneficiary of an estate or trust that is engaged in a trade or business in the United States, you are treated as being engaged in the same trade or business. Deadline for taxes Trading in stocks, securities, and commodities. Deadline for taxes   If your only U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes business activity is trading in stocks, securities, or commodities (including hedging transactions) through a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes resident broker or other agent, you are not engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Deadline for taxes   For transactions in stocks or securities, this applies to any nonresident alien, including a dealer or broker in stocks and securities. Deadline for taxes   For transactions in commodities, this applies to commodities that are usually traded on an organized commodity exchange and to transactions that are usually carried out at such an exchange. Deadline for taxes   This discussion does not apply if you have a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes office or other fixed place of business at any time during the tax year through which, or by the direction of which, you carry out your transactions in stocks, securities, or commodities. Deadline for taxes Trading for a nonresident alien's own account. Deadline for taxes   You are not engaged in a trade or business in the United States if trading for your own account in stocks, securities, or commodities is your only U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes business activity. Deadline for taxes This applies even if the trading takes place while you are present in the United States or is done by your employee or your broker or other agent. Deadline for taxes   This does not apply to trading for your own account if you are a dealer in stocks, securities, or commodities. Deadline for taxes This does not necessarily mean, however, that as a dealer you are considered to be engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Deadline for taxes Determine that based on the facts and circumstances in each case or under the rules given above in Trading in stocks, securities, and commodities . Deadline for taxes Effectively Connected Income If you are engaged in a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business, all income, gain, or loss for the tax year that you get from sources within the United States (other than certain investment income) is treated as effectively connected income. Deadline for taxes This applies whether or not there is any connection between the income and the trade or business being carried on in the United States during the tax year. Deadline for taxes Two tests, described next under Investment Income, determine whether certain items of investment income (such as interest, dividends, and royalties) are treated as effectively connected with that business. Deadline for taxes In limited circumstances, some kinds of foreign source income may be treated as effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Deadline for taxes For a discussion of these rules, see Foreign Income , later. Deadline for taxes Investment Income Investment income from U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes sources that may or may not be treated as effectively connected with a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business generally falls into the following three categories. Deadline for taxes Fixed or determinable income (interest, dividends, rents, royalties, premiums, annuities, etc. Deadline for taxes ). Deadline for taxes Gains (some of which are considered capital gains) from the sale or exchange of the following types of property. Deadline for taxes Timber, coal, or domestic iron ore with a retained economic interest. Deadline for taxes Patents, copyrights, and similar property on which you receive contingent payments after October 4, 1966. Deadline for taxes Patents transferred before October 5, 1966. Deadline for taxes Original issue discount obligations. Deadline for taxes Capital gains (and losses). Deadline for taxes Use the two tests, described next, to determine whether an item of U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes source income falling in one of the three categories above and received during the tax year is effectively connected with your U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business. Deadline for taxes If the tests indicate that the item of income is effectively connected, you must include it with your other effectively connected income. Deadline for taxes If the item of income is not effectively connected, include it with all other income discussed under The 30% Tax later, in this chapter. Deadline for taxes Asset-use test. Deadline for taxes   This test usually applies to income that is not directly produced by trade or business activities. Deadline for taxes Under this test, if an item of income is from assets (property) used in, or held for use in, the trade or business in the United States, it is considered effectively connected. Deadline for taxes   An asset is used in, or held for use in, the trade or business in the United States if the asset is: Held for the principal purpose of promoting the conduct of a trade or business in the United States, Acquired and held in the ordinary course of the trade or business conducted in the United States (for example, an account receivable or note receivable arising from that trade or business), or Otherwise held to meet the present needs of the trade or business in the United States and not its anticipated future needs. Deadline for taxes Generally, stock of a corporation is not treated as an asset used in, or held for use in, a trade or business in the United States. Deadline for taxes Business-activities test. Deadline for taxes   This test usually applies when income, gain, or loss comes directly from the active conduct of the trade or business. Deadline for taxes The business-activities test is most important when: Dividends or interest are received by a dealer in stocks or securities, Royalties are received in the trade or business of licensing patents or similar property, or Service fees are earned by a servicing business. Deadline for taxes Under this test, if the conduct of the U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business was a material factor in producing the income, the income is considered effectively connected. Deadline for taxes Personal Service Income You usually are engaged in a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business when you perform personal services in the United States. Deadline for taxes Personal service income you receive in a tax year in which you are engaged in a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business is effectively connected with a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business. Deadline for taxes Income received in a year other than the year you performed the services is also effectively connected if it would have been effectively connected if received in the year you performed the services. Deadline for taxes Personal service income includes wages, salaries, commissions, fees, per diem allowances, and employee allowances and bonuses. Deadline for taxes The income may be paid to you in the form of cash, services, or property. Deadline for taxes If you are engaged in a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business only because you perform personal services in the United States during the tax year, income and gains from assets, and gains and losses from the sale or exchange of capital assets are generally not effectively connected with your trade or business. Deadline for taxes However, if there is a direct economic relationship between your holding of the asset and your trade or business of performing personal services, the income, gain, or loss is effectively connected. Deadline for taxes Pensions. Deadline for taxes   If you were a nonresident alien engaged in a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business after 1986 because you performed personal services in the United States, and you later receive a pension or retirement pay attributable to these services, such payments are effectively connected income in each year you receive them. Deadline for taxes This is true whether or not you are engaged in a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business in the year you receive the retirement pay. Deadline for taxes Transportation Income Transportation income (defined in chapter 2) is effectively connected if you meet both of the following conditions. Deadline for taxes You had a fixed place of business in the United States involved in earning the income. Deadline for taxes At least 90% of your U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes source transportation income is attributable to regularly scheduled transportation. Deadline for taxes “Fixed place of business” generally means a place, site, structure, or other similar facility through which you engage in a trade or business. Deadline for taxes “Regularly scheduled transportation” means that a ship or aircraft follows a published schedule with repeated sailings or flights at regular intervals between the same points for voyages or flights that begin or end in the United States. Deadline for taxes This definition applies to both scheduled and chartered air transportation. Deadline for taxes If you do not meet the two conditions above, the income is not effectively connected and is taxed at a 4% rate. Deadline for taxes See Transportation Tax, later, in this chapter. Deadline for taxes Business Profits and Losses and Sales Transactions All profits or losses from U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes sources that are from the operation of a business in the United States are effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Deadline for taxes For example, profit from the sale in the United States of inventory property purchased either in this country or in a foreign country is effectively connected trade or business income. Deadline for taxes A share of U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes source profits or losses of a partnership that is engaged in a trade or business in the United States is also effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Deadline for taxes Real Property Gain or Loss Gains and losses from the sale or exchange of U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property interests (whether or not they are capital assets) are taxed as if you are engaged in a trade or business in the United States. Deadline for taxes You must treat the gain or loss as effectively connected with that trade or business. Deadline for taxes U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property interest. Deadline for taxes   This is any interest in real property located in the United States or the U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes Virgin Islands or any interest (other than as a creditor) in a domestic corporation that is a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property holding corporation. Deadline for taxes Real property includes the following. Deadline for taxes Land and unsevered natural products of the land, such as growing crops and timber, and mines, wells, and other natural deposits. Deadline for taxes Improvements on land, including buildings, other permanent structures, and their structural components. Deadline for taxes Personal property associated with the use of real property, such as equipment used in farming, mining, forestry, or construction or property used in lodging facilities or rented office space, unless the personal property is: Disposed of more than one year before or after the disposition of the real property, or Separately sold to persons unrelated either to the seller or to the buyer of the real property. Deadline for taxes U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property holding corporation. Deadline for taxes   A corporation is a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property holding corporation if the fair market value of the corporation's U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property interests are at least 50% of the total fair market value of: The corporation's U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property interests, plus The corporation's interests in real property located outside the United States, plus The corporation's other assets that are used in, or held for use in, a trade or business. Deadline for taxes   Gain or loss on the sale of the stock in any domestic corporation is taxed as if you are engaged in a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business unless you establish that the corporation is not a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property holding corporation. Deadline for taxes   A U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property interest does not include a class of stock of a corporation that is regularly traded on an established securities market, unless you hold more than 5% of the fair market value of that class of stock. Deadline for taxes An interest in a foreign corporation owning U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property generally is not a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property interest unless the corporation chooses to be treated as a domestic corporation. Deadline for taxes Qualified investment entities. Deadline for taxes   Special rules apply to qualified investment entities (QIEs). Deadline for taxes A QIE is any real estate investment trust (REIT) or any regulated investment company (RIC) that is a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property holding corporation. Deadline for taxes    Generally, any distribution from a QIE to a shareholder that is attributable to gain from the sale or exchange of a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property interest is treated as a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property gain by the shareholder receiving the distribution. Deadline for taxes A distribution by a QIE on stock regularly traded on an established securities market in the United States is not treated as gain from the sale or exchange of a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property interest if you did not own more than 5% of that stock at any time during the 1-year period ending on the date of the distribution. Deadline for taxes A distribution that you do not treat as gain from the sale or exchange of a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property interest is included in your gross income as a regular dividend. Deadline for taxes Note. Deadline for taxes Beginning January 1, 2014 (unless extended by legislation), a RIC that is a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property holding corporation will only be treated as a QIE for certain distributions from the RIC that are directly or indirectly attributable to distributions received by the RIC from a REIT. Deadline for taxes Domestically controlled QIE. Deadline for taxes   The sale of an interest in a domestically controlled QIE is not the sale of a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property interest. Deadline for taxes The entity is domestically controlled if at all times during the testing period less than 50% in value of its stock was held, directly or indirectly, by foreign persons. Deadline for taxes The testing period is the shorter of (a) the 5-year period ending on the date of disposition, or (b) the period during which the entity was in existence. Deadline for taxes Wash sale. Deadline for taxes    If you dispose of an interest in a domestically controlled QIE in an applicable wash sale transaction, special rules apply. Deadline for taxes An applicable wash sale transaction is one in which you: Dispose of an interest in the domestically controlled QIE during the 30-day period before the ex-dividend date of a distribution that you would (but for the disposition) have treated as gain from the sale or exchange of a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property interest, and Acquire, or enter into a contract or option to acquire, a substantially identical interest in that entity during the 61-day period that began on the first day of the 30-day period. Deadline for taxes If this occurs, you are treated as having gain from the sale or exchange of a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property interest in an amount equal to the distribution made after June 15, 2006, that would have been treated as such gain. Deadline for taxes This also applies to any substitute dividend payment. Deadline for taxes   A transaction is not treated as an applicable wash sale transaction if: You actually receive the distribution from the domestically controlled QIE related to the interest disposed of, or acquired, in the transaction, or You dispose of any class of stock in a QIE that is regularly traded on an established securities market in the United States but only if you did not own more than 5% of that class of stock at any time during the 1-year period ending on the date of the distribution. Deadline for taxes Alternative minimum tax. Deadline for taxes   There may be a minimum tax on your net gain from the disposition of U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property interests. Deadline for taxes Figure the amount of this tax, if any, on Form 6251. Deadline for taxes Withholding of tax. Deadline for taxes   If you dispose of a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes real property interest, the buyer may have to withhold tax. Deadline for taxes See the discussion of Tax Withheld on Real Property Sales in chapter 8. Deadline for taxes Foreign Income You must treat three kinds of foreign source income as effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States if: You have an office or other fixed place of business in the United States to which the income can be attributed, That office or place of business is a material factor in producing the income, and The income is produced in the ordinary course of the trade or business carried on through that office or other fixed place of business. Deadline for taxes An office or other fixed place of business is a material factor if it significantly contributes to, and is an essential economic element in, the earning of the income. Deadline for taxes The three kinds of foreign source income are listed below. Deadline for taxes Rents and royalties for the use of, or for the privilege of using, intangible personal property located outside the United States or from any interest in such property. Deadline for taxes Included are rents or royalties for the use, or for the privilege of using, outside the United States, patents, copyrights, secret processes and formulas, goodwill, trademarks, trade brands, franchises, and similar properties if the rents or royalties are from the active conduct of a trade or business in the United States. Deadline for taxes Dividends, interest, or amounts received for the provision of a guarantee of indebtedness issued after September 27, 2010, from the active conduct of a banking, financing, or similar business in the United States. Deadline for taxes A substitute dividend or interest payment received under a securities lending transaction or a sale-repurchase transaction is treated the same as the amounts received on the transferred security. Deadline for taxes Income, gain, or loss from the sale outside the United States, through the U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes office or other fixed place of business, of: Stock in trade, Property that would be included in inventory if on hand at the end of the tax year, or Property held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of business. Deadline for taxes Item (3) will not apply if you sold the property for use, consumption, or disposition outside the United States and an office or other fixed place of business in a foreign country was a material factor in the sale. Deadline for taxes Any foreign source income that is equivalent to any item of income described above is treated as effectively connected with a U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business. Deadline for taxes For example, foreign source interest and dividend equivalents are treated as U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes effectively connected income if the income is derived by a foreign person in the active conduct of a banking, financing, or similar business within the United States. Deadline for taxes Tax on Effectively Connected Income Income you receive during the tax year that is effectively connected with your trade or business in the United States is, after allowable deductions, taxed at the rates that apply to U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes citizens and residents. Deadline for taxes Generally, you can receive effectively connected income only if you are a nonresident alien engaged in trade or business in the United States during the tax year. Deadline for taxes However, income you receive from the sale or exchange of property, the performance of services, or any other transaction in another tax year is treated as effectively connected in that year if it would have been effectively connected in the year the transaction took place or you performed the services. Deadline for taxes Example. Deadline for taxes Ted Richards, a nonresident alien, entered the United States in August 2012, to perform personal services in the U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes office of his overseas employer. Deadline for taxes He worked in the U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes office until December 25, 2012, but did not leave this country until January 11, 2013. Deadline for taxes On January 8, 2013, he received his final paycheck for services performed in the United States during 2012. Deadline for taxes All of Ted's income during his stay here is U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes source income. Deadline for taxes During 2012, Ted was engaged in the trade or business of performing personal services in the United States. Deadline for taxes Therefore, all amounts paid to him in 2012 for services performed in the United States during 2012 are effectively connected with that trade or business during 2012. Deadline for taxes The salary payment Ted received in January 2013 is U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes source income to him in 2013. Deadline for taxes It is effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States because he was engaged in a trade or business in the United States during 2012 when he performed the services that earned the income. Deadline for taxes Real property income. Deadline for taxes   You may be able to choose to treat all income from real property as effectively connected. Deadline for taxes See Income From Real Property , later, in this chapter. Deadline for taxes The 30% Tax Tax at a 30% (or lower treaty) rate applies to certain items of income or gains from U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes sources but only if the items are not effectively connected with your U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes trade or business. Deadline for taxes Fixed or Determinable Income The 30% (or lower treaty) rate applies to the gross amount of U. Deadline for taxes S. Deadline for taxes source fixed or determinable annual or periodic gains, profits, or income. Deadline for taxes Income is fixed when it is paid in amounts known ahead of time. Deadline for taxes Income is determinable whenever there is a basis for figuring the amount to be paid. Deadline for taxes Income can be periodic if it is paid from time to time. Deadline for taxes It does not have to be paid annually or at regular intervals. Deadline for taxes Income can be determinable or periodic even if the length of time during which the payments are made is increased or decreased.
